Best non-stick skillet?

Does anyone have a good non-stick skillet that they would recommend? I've been using a Denmark skillet that I purchased at Bed Bath. & Beyond, but it seems to wear quickly and chip around the edges.

A properly seasoned cast iron skillet, hands down.

Can you cook eggs in a cast iron skillet?

Once it's well seasoned. Yes.

That's awesome. Seems like cast iron skillets are really versatile.

Versatile, and inexpensive too.

You can get pre-seasoned Lodge CI for very little money at Wal-Mart and hardware stores. You can get 8", 10" and 12" skillets for $15-$20 each.

The really good part is that they last forever and if something happens to damage the seasoning, you can clean it off and re-season it.

The downside is they are heavy.

I use a 6" CI skillet to cook my eggs whenever I don't poach them. It works for me. And I eat eggs 4-5 days/week. They slide right out. I clean mine with salt and a broomstick cleaner (from Europe), but one could use salt and a nylon scrubber. Most of the time, wiping it out with a paper towel is all the clean up that is needed.

IMO you never want to buy the"best" non stick.

Buy the cheapest and replace .
