Fry pan - What size?

I have an old T-Fal fry pan that measures 7 in across the top and 5-1/2 across the bottom. What size would that be considered? I want to order a new one in a different brand, preferably to match my Cuisinart Chef's Classic pans, but all I can seem to find in non-stick stainless is 8". Have pans changed sizes over the years and maybe this is one not offered anymore? It was the perfect size for two sunny side up eggs.

Hey thanks! I thought I went through all their pans last night, but it seemed like Amazon rearranged their cookware dept a bit and I admit I was having trouble navigating it. Too bad it's "unavailable", but at least I know they make them. I even searched 7 in fry pans and all I came up with was a CI one.
You da man, UB!

I would consider that a small skillet. I love my 10" and 12" cast irons.. You have room to get to the food.

I just remembered...I have one of these hanging up in the back of a closet. I don't use it much as I use the plain version to cook eggs...

It's a no frills, but very functional pan!

That'll work, Bob. And it's not 80 bucks like the all-clads.. sheesh. Gonna get that ordered today

It is a small pan, Jeff. That's why I like it so much. Two eggs go in and take up the whole cooking surface. When I used to buy eggs and get runny whites, the sides of the pan held them together. A small pot lid fits well on it to cook the top faster. Then the eggs slide right out. No other utensils needed. Well, they used to slide right out.... that's why I'm looking for another one. Works well for single hamburger patties, also. I get a lot of use out of mine.

My 25 year old T-Fal cookware is kicking the bucket one by one
The saute pan, now three fry pans, I imagine the pots I use most often will start going soon, too.

Where at? The three places I found them were all 75 - 85. Unless they went on sale after I looked.... They look a bit more like my current cookware.

I got mine through Amazon. The little skillet and the little saucepan are very often on sale.

Snoop around via google and see if you can find them. I will too.
