We are a cast iron/dutch oven household for most of our cooking tasks. The only exception to this, is we usually have a small, cheap 8-inch nonstick to make a quick egg or omelette in. Well, the handle on our old one snapped in a way that we cannot fix without welding, and its a little beat up anyway.
Since the last time we bought a pan, the conversation around non-stick seems to have really exploded. Reviewers on amazon point to chemicals that are teflon-like but named other things, leading to lots of 1-2 star reviews on reasonably priced pans. I was wondering if someone here has already done a bunch of research into this so I don't have to spend a few days figuring out whats legit.
I'm looking for:
- 8 inch pan
- Like 40$ USD at most, preferably less if its not going to last a while.
- Nonstick without some period of seasoning, its primarily for frying eggs.
- Easy to clean for quick before work breakfast
- Not Cancer?
