Amazon Shoppers Are Swapping All-Clad for This $30 Nonstick Skillet That Cooks 'Like a Dream'
Nonstick skillets are often the unsung heroes of the kitchen, capable of perfectly scrambled eggs without leaving any bits of food behind. So if you've solely been working with stainless steel—or simply need to upgrade an old pan—consider opting for the Cuisinart Chef's Classic 9-Inch Nonstick Skillet, which is 50% off at Amazon right now.
The skillet is designed with a hard-anodized exterior that makes it harder and more durable than traditional stainless steel. The nonstick coating is marbled with titanium, allowing food to easily release from the pan, and it also heats up quickly, preventing any hot spots from forming. Reach for the skillet for just about any task in the kitchen, whether you're frying eggs or flipping pancakes.
Each skillet is finished off with a cool grip, stainless steel handle that stays cool even when the pan is on the highest of heats. The pan has also been constructed with sloped sides and a tapered rim that allows for drip-free pouring. It's oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, but make sure not to stick it in the dishwasher; the skillet will last longer if you wash it by hand with a bit of soap and water.

Hundreds of Amazon shoppers have given the nonstick skillet a five-star rating, with many noting that "nothing sticks," while others write, "It is the perfect size for cooking eggs and cooks them like a dream."
"I am a hardcore All-Clad kinda girl, but we realized a need for a nonstick pan," one five-star reviewer shared. "I found this and thought we'd give it a try. We are so happy we chose this one. It isn't too big or bulky, it cleans easily, and fried eggs slide around on it like an ice skating rink. It certainly exceeded my expectations, and my mom has tried stealing it more than once."
"This skillet is by far the best pan I own," another user said. "It's the best size for what I need it for. This is my go-to pan and I don't want any other. It does everything it's supposed to whenever I choose to cook eggs, meat, or veggies. It has a great balance and you'll get used to it quickly as if it's always been in your pan drawer."
