They are better now. But like most are saying to just buy one for eggs. I have four non-stick pans. 2 Calphalon and the two new Kirland pans.
As they get older and not as efficient, I use them for other frying duties.

You want the 8" for omelets Taxi.
We also protect these pans when stacking. We have many pot holders and knitted kitchen stuff I have no idea as to what they are for.
So I just put one in between each pan when returning it to the shelf.

I use the 10" for omelets. Its all about the size of the omelet. Smaller pan, smaller omelet.
My Calphalon 8" anodized if perfectly clean, will work just as good as a non stick. But if you are not used to anodized AL, you might be disappointed at first until you learn how to use them.
You also need more oil or butter in the anodized.

If they are square, they are practice squares for those who are just learning to knit or crochet and are told they are making dish clothes for washing dishes.

Thanks Addie. I am not even sure what the shapes are. But your explanation sure does sound right on.
I think some are shaped like a hand/glove? Not sure. I will pay more attention when I am in close contact with them this evening.
