    Unhappy Frying pans

    My trusty old frying pan, that I got from my late grandparents 14 years ago, has finally burned it's last cheese sandwich
    I am looking for a solid replacement that will last me the same amount if years if not longer.
    It was a home brand pan bought at a big Dutch Warehouse. No big price tag, just a great quality pan for a low price.

    So I am looking for similar. Great quality with a decent price tag. I would pay as much as $20,- for a 24cm pan.

    Any tips on brands and quality?

    Smith & Nobel from Harris Scarfe. The best gift i've ever received. The non stick is excellent - oil is never necessary only a light coat of cooking spray. I use it all the time. Had it for 7 months now, and we always make sure we use rubber utensils and it doesn't have a mark on it. I believe it was around the $50.00 mark?

    I know you said around the $20 mark but i don't know how good a quality you will get for that money.

    I recommend paying more for quality... It will save you money in the long run. I have had my Swiss diamond frypans for years and years and they still look like new and also come with a warranty.

    Hmmm the ones from this big warehouse were only $15,- for the 20cm and $20,- for the 24cm and as I said 1 lasted me 14 years until yesterday and the other is still going strong.
    I will check out Aldi and the other mentioned brands. Maybe ebay or google can find them for me at a somewhat decent price.

    I am no fan of Tefal as my mother had bought a Jamie Oliver thermospot frying pan for $89,- and the teflon has started to crack at just 4 months old

    Try IKEA. I don't think you will get 14 years out of one but they are cheap and hard wearing.

    I love my IKEA 360 Frying pan, actually I bought it as a set so I'm not sure how much they are individually, but I bought 3 different sized saucepans with lids, and a frying pan for $70.
