No, of course not. As I said, it just occurred to me that this might be a chance to fix one thing that's really been bugging me. Plus the griddle and the large frying pan are the two pans I use most, so it is worth putting a bit of work into solving this problem.
I'm not a glamour chef, but I cook almost every meal we eat in this kitchen and function is important to me. I like to have a few well made and effective tools rather than a different one for every possible thing I might ever want to cook (or make - I have also designed and built everything from houses to a computer that went up in the shuttle.)
And we do not have a huge kitchen, so storing lots of pots and pans is not going to be an option.
