    I bought this set about 6 years ago and they are both still going strong. I don't baby them (maybe even abuse them?) and user the A LOT! I bought them as eventual throwaways. They were SOOOO with the money. The only drawback is they don't come with lids, but I have life from other pots that fit each of them perfectly.

    EDIT: another potential drawback is that they aren't induction FRIENDLY. I also meant to include that at the time I bought them, they were the top rated non-stick by America's Test Kitchen.

    Find your nearest restaurant supply store and buy a cheap commercial grade non stick for around $20. Replace with like every couple of years when it eventually becomes 'stick'

    I vouch for this pan too - we have the 12" and the 8". The 12" is used about as much as my Lodge 12". The 8" is a great size for omelets and eggs. Ours will be disposable mostly because SWMBO won't be careful about what utensil she picks up and uses in the nonstick pans, and I am tired of starting what ends up being a fight over it.

    OXO Good Grips Non-Stick Pro. Use them, try to be a bit nice with them, then replace them as needed. I use the 12 in. model almost daily and it lasts for a good year. For mashing beans, pan frying chicken and other heavy duty stuff it's cast iron. For roasting fish, carbon steel.

    Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, is another man-made chemical. It has been used in the process of making Teflon and similar chemicals (known as fluorotelomers), although it is burned off during the process and is not present in significant amounts in the final products.Mar 4, 2020

    Watch Dark Waters movie.
    you will not want Teflon coated anything.

    Cooks Illustrated recommends OXO Good Grips Non-Stick Pro 12" Open Frypan. Their testing is quite thorough. This one is oven safe to 430 degrees F but don't heat Teflon over 500 degrees or it starts t do bad things. I bought one in September of 2020 for $50 and have enjoyed using it. Amazon has one listed for a ridiculous price. Walmart has one similar for $48.43 but it has a black handle so it is probably not ovenproof.
    Good luck

    I just got one of those for omelets. My old pan was done. My CI pan is too cumbersome for omelets. So far, call me impressed. However, I view them as disposable, as it was $20.

    +1. These pans are amazing, Don't be fooled by the negative reviews on amazon, take care of them they will take care of you.

    I was recently gifted a Ninja Foodi Neverstick pan. Its sells for about $50, which normally would have put it over my price point on a non-stick pan since like the posts above state they are basically disposable. Even the high cost ones will wear out after a year or two of normal use even if you take excellent care of them. Cast iron and stainless steel I will spend a lot more on because they will last past my lifetime and be handed down to my kids lol. any way back to the Ninja, i have to say i love that thing. i have only had it for a few months so i cant speak to how it will last but so far its been a great pan. Also from my understanding they make a cheaper version of this pan just for Walmart, from what i have read you should avoid that one and either buy from another store or straight from the Ninja website.

    A well-seasoned carbon steel pan is virtually non-stick

    I bought this one based on the Serious Eats Article linked above. It is heavy aluminum. I like it very much. I am coming off old Cuisinart non-stick that was very expensive but didn't last. I am now definitely in the non-stick is disposable camp.

    "I'm the last person to advise buying cheap stuff just for the sake of cheapness. I've invested in some fairly pricey kitchen equipment over the years, from high-quality enameled cast iron to top-notch Japanese knives; in almost every case, I've come to the conclusion that, while the initial purchase stings a bit, you usually make up for it when you're buying tools that can last a lifetime. Spread out over years of use, an item's high up-front cost can start to seem downright economical. But not in the case of nonstick cookware. No, when it comes to nonstick, I say go cheap or go home."
