It Was Time

About a dozen or more years ago, I bought a three skillet set of non-stick cookware - 8", 10" and 12" for $20. at Costco. The smaller ones get used most for egg dishes. The larger one occasionally for other stuff. SO likes them. Good long service for $20.

It was time, however, to let them go the that big kitchen in the sky and replace them. Back to Costco. A three pan Tramontina set, made in the USA for $25. Inflation is a witch. These should last me until I die.

They look nice, Andy. You'll have to report on how they perform as you put them through their paces.

Nice set Andy. I'm about due too. May we both outlive our non stick pans again.

This is the first time a woman told me I had a nice set!

Getting new non-stick is so satisfying, everything just glides around...kinda like that feeling you get putting on a brand new pair of cushy socks. :)
