I’m a bit tempted by the 11” frypan; for some reason I gave my brother my 12” Demeyere (@ $400 the 12” Hestan isn’t feasible).

I just bought a set of Hestan Nanobond. They are gorgeous. Heat MUCH better than my All-Clad. They clean up incredibly easy. Only downside is the price. They are excellent however.
Just saw their website...that's some hi-tech stuff..."surface is four times harder than stainless; withstands heat up to 1050 F". Might need to get one.
Oh man!!!

Just bought a couple of pots of the Hestan. I got a $25 discount at Williams Sonoma, so the two pots came to about the same as an off vintage of a First Growth.

Thanks Don.
I got one of the two pots yesterday, which meant under the watchful eye of my wife, 3 pans had to go. I plan to cook rack of lamb and duck fat potatoes this weekend served with a 1975 Domaine de Chevalier.

Did a search of "induction" and found this thread, though unsure if any of the recs are induction or not.

We are getting an induction stovetop installed next week and need a new set of pots and pans...appreciate any recs on brands and good sources.

La Tache, preferably the 1966, my wife’s favorite, but not too fussy.

Williams Sonoma has a special on the basic Hestan pan down from $149 to $99.

Canceled my back ordered one and bought two at new price. Very happy with the one that has arrived.

Yes that’s what I bought. Says $199 orig $99 now. I guess that’s what I thought he meant by basic (small)?

I received my Made In SS.
I love the weight and balance, especially the Saucier.
I'll report after some use.

8-1/2” is really small for a fry pan.

We have a bunch of all-clad for decades now. What sees the most use? Cast iron.

I’m hoping the it works well for eggs/omelets, (skeptical) but I’m sick of replacing non-stick.

Should also work as a proof of concept.

When cooking for one, I often use a skillet that size.

I bought the Demeyer Atlantis 9.4 inch for $99, unbelievable quality and value and as Al states very handy for smaller portions

I often use a smaller skillet when cooking for two. A thick-cut steak or pork chop for two isn't all that big, and I'd much rather have a smaller thicker piece of protein than a thinner larger one.

Nice score. I love my Demeyere, though none of it is Atlantis.

For this application and 2 duck breasts or small dinner for two scallops, it is ideal.
You can put just a small spray of Pam or use butter if you prefer. It basically cleans up with water. You can flip the omelette with your wrist. No spatula needed.
It is AMAZING. Much better than any non-stick, All-Clad etc I have ever used.

I love the Made In stainless so much that I just ordered the 12" non-stick.

I go with ScanPan. They lined with some frictionless metal alloy. They are a bit heavy, but the non-stick feature/dishwasher staff/ability to take metal utensils adds so much convenience to the lift. Don't leach/no chemical coating. Been slowly swapping out our stainless. Can't imagine cooking eggs on anything else.
Interesting. I have yet to find a non-stick pan that works as well for eggs as my carbon steel crepe pan.
Highly recommend these pans. Again, they are heavier, so an 8 quart sauce pan would be quite the beast... but we have switched all our fry/sauteee pans to them. A breeze to clean.
I rescind my recommendation for scanpan. I clearly got baited. They are not a single layer of metal, there is a coating of some sort that is now starting to peel -- and I don't think we got them more than ~4 YR ago. I would NOT recommend scanpan due whatever chemical concoction they have added that causes a peeling effect.
