About 7 years ago I invested in some more expensive cookware than the normal cheap Walmart frying pans I had been buying. I found that this really made a difference, especially the expensive teflon pans didn't chip the way the cheap ones do. One of my purchases was a 12" Cuisinart Nonstick Hard-Anodized frying pan. Several months ago the non-stick surface pretty much stopped working. 7 years was a pretty good run and I had thought I would buy another similar pan, but then while browsing pans at Amazon I saw the Green Earth ceramic coated pans and that they had good reviews, so I decided to try one of those instead.
Turns out that I made a great choice! I am incredibly impressed with this pan. Not only is the non-stick coating better than any pan I have had before, it also is amazingly easy to clean and I love the color! I was so impressed I started trying to think of why I needed to replace my 7 year old Emeril brand non-stick pan, which is still in pretty much perfect condition. The reasons I came up with is that the Emeril pan is teflon and Amazon has the Green Earth pans on sale for less than half of the list price, so I just ordered the 10".
I suppose I may change my mind about these pans being that I have only been using my new one for a week, but I kind of doubt it. If so, I will let you know.
