Operation: Saute Pan
I'm in desparate need of a new saute pan in my cookware arsenal. When we registered for our wedding (Almost 3 years ago - ack!), I went the easy route and received a lovely set of Calphalon pots and pans. Honestly, I hate them.
I do most of my cooking in the 4 or 5 Le Creuset items that my mother received for her wedding over 25 years ago. (I kid you not. I love my 25 year old Le Creuset - complete with 1970's wooden handles!) They're a variation of Le Creuset's dijon color, match nothing, weigh a ton and are probably my favorite possessions! I don't know what it is about these bad boys, but they have yet to do my wrong.
So my question is this. Do I spring for the LC Saute Pan? (It's definitely the pricier option!) Or are there other decent cookware brands out there? Is it possible to find another pan that will win my heart - and maybe cost a little less?
All clad has a fabulous French Skillet that is also calling my name....
