Huge Bargain
 
In case you nave a specific need...

I was in Costco yesterday and saw a tri-ply stainless Tramontina 5-quart sauté pan for $30.00!!!

This is a huge bargain. I have Tramontina pieces and they perform well.

I did have a need for a non stick pan. Fell asleep and overheated my last one. Burnt the finish off but did not light the house on fire!
So, I went to a restaurant supply store and found, 2, to my liking. One was $25.00 and one was $50.00. The cheaper one was made in china, the $50.00 was made in USA. I did not even think about the price! Anyway, you know which one I have now!
I made crapes with raspberry's and orange sauce, flambe, To test it out, did not burn it!
Sorry, but nothing from china for me!

I understand. The pan I listed was made in Brazil.

Tramontina tri-ply clad pans are awesome quality for the money. Probably some of the best bang for the buck. I have a tri-ply clad skillet from them and it's pretty much flawless.

I'm making a Costco run next week. I'll check it out, thanks Andy.

I went to Costco yesterday and spotted that pan. It looks really nice and seems to be a wonderful size. Not knowing much about it, I passed on it. Perhaps I will revisit. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks for the tip! I'm in the market for a new saute' pan. I'll check it out next time I'm in. Do you happen to have a rough estimate of the pan circumferance?

It's about 12" in diameter so about 37"-38" in circumference.

C = 2pi X r
So, 2 X 3.146 X 12 = 18.876" = Circumference :biggrin:.
