The wife has arthritis, so a good cast iron skillet is not always her friend. But I'm not wild about teflan coated aluminum frying pans, even though they are non-stick and lighter.

We received a Copper Chef skillet for Christmas. We had some serious doubts about this thing, as it is light and light equates to doesn't cook very well. We were wrong. For many of the things you you would use no-stick for - eggs, pancakes, French toast, etc. - it has really done well.

Finally
Mrs. George will not use my cast-iron for the same reasons as Mrs. Jolly.

I'll give this one a look, thanks!

Edit: How's it for searing stuff like steaks, etc? Can you consider it a replacement for cast-iron?

I still use cast iron for things like searing a steak, so :shrug: . At the price, I'd give it a try. The only thing I would worry about is the high heat damaging a light skillet.

OTOH, it ain't like you've got a fortune tied up in it.

Based on our results with the skillet, we bought the small crisper:

Again, very light, but does a really nice job on things like meatloaf, tater tots, etc. And clean-up is not bad.

HOLY CARP!!!
Completely by coincidence, I also recently picked up a 3-pack of square Copper Chef skillets, came with 8", 9.5", and 11" sizes. A department store here had it on discount.

I acquired the square version instead of the round version originally thinking the square version would allow more efficient use of range real estate, but then the tradeoff is I cannot re-use the various round glass lids that I already have. If I were to buy square glass lids for these square pans, the lids themselves will be more expensive than the pans, not to mention the additional storage space required by new lids. So there's a bit of buyer's remorse there, not because of the quality of the product, but because of "backward incompatiblity" with my existing glass lids. :shrug:
