So nice to have new nieces! Can't make big promises about Santa but you can both have a cookie or a lolly.

I gave the "Country Skillet" to DD. I'm keeping the Lyonnaise. I thought you bought some of the De Buyers.

I did, love them and they are seasoned just right for anything I can throw into them. I had to make Shrek promise to never touch them again, though. He kept soaking them in dishwater...and scrubbing them clean.

On the induction front, it was technically working but not very well. The pan would "sync" with the magnet but often "buzzed" and would not always "re-sync" when lifted.

I looked long and hard at investing in a QUALITY set. I bought some sample pieces from Al-Clad to test but wasn't overly impressed with them. It just didn't seem like the price matched the quality.

I also shopped offerings from De Buyer, Demeyere, and Matfer Bourgeat but ultimately decided on Mauviel M'Cook based on price/value.

More to follow...

The few pieces of Demeyere (Atlantis & Bistro) I have are my most favorite cookware. Wish I could rationailze the purchase of more Demeyere but do not have enough storage space and have sentimental attachment to many of my hand-me-downs.

I have to say I'm really impressed with the new pans. Even heating, easy to clean up. Nothing sticks as long as you get the pans leidenfrost effect hot before adding oil. Meats sear very well too. Performance with induction stove exceeds expectations.
