I bought the Cuisinart 5-1/2 qt saute pan. I'm single, but I'd say I cook for three people. I eat big, like leftovers and maybe some for next day's lunch...... or if I get hungry again in a couple hours
It's a monster and takes up a lot of room on the stove, but it generally contains the bulk if not the whole meal that I'm cooking.
Here's a link to Cuisinart's page on Amazon. The one I bought is #7 and looks like a non-stick and says it's 30 bucks, but I paid 47 last year and mine is not non-stick. If you look at # 11, the 3-1/2 qt, you'll see it is $54. If this is some kind of mistake or big sale on their part, I'd jump on it. As long as you're getting the all SS one and not non-stick.
