Yeh, I'm like Taxi, had them back in the 70's, early 80's, and they were junk. I even boguth a set that was guaranteed to last forever (Diamond something or other), and they became junk as fast as any from Kmart, or WalMart did. My CI, on the other hand, are virtually non-stick, and last forever. They just don't have those beautifully rounded sides required for making a proper French omelet. I bough what looks like a good pan, from Gordon's Food Service, heavy aluminum with a non-stick coating for $19.

By the way, your post had me snickering at myself. Not a lot of people can do that. Be proud. You are special indeed.

Thanks for the heads up.

Do I really want the 12 inch one? They also have the 10 inch one for $11.99 and the 8 inch one for $9.99. And, I can pay for it with "Canadian Tire Money On the Card".

Which size is best for omelettes? I probably won't use it for anything else.

Keep in mind, that although non stick cookware has certainly come a long way since the 70's it's still not perfect, nor will it last forever. That's why I suggested using your new pan for omelets only. At least the coating doesn't peel off of it anymore! I have several however, and always keep a paper plate between them when stacking.

You want the 8" for omelets Taxi.

Sprout made me a pot rack when she was in high school. All my pots and pans go there.

Every parent should have a Sprout, and a P.A.G.

Woohoo! I got this 26 cm (~10 inch) T Fal non stick skillet today. T-fal 26cm Frying Pan

I would have gotten the 8" one, but I wasn't in the mood to hunt for it and this one looked about right.

If it asks for a postal code, try H9G 1W7.

Thanks for the heads up Roch.

This made me smile. The family story goes that my Great Grandmother (housekeeper to a member of the minor aristocracy in the late 19th century, married the butler and the pair of them later ran large hotels) used to include a poached egg as part of the interview procedure for her cooks. However good they were at haute cuisine, if they failed the poached egg test they were out on their ear!

All this talk of omelettes made me make one for my supper tonight. A minute to cook, no flipping or broiling and a nice squishy eggy, cheesy middle. Yum.
