I have a set of Calphalone and they are all equally wonderful.
Other than that I have 1 cast iron frying pan that was the first piece of cookware I ever purchased. Also gaining respect is a HUGE cast iron frying pan I bought at a flea market. It was new, still had the tag on it and had "The Cracker Barrel" stamped on the bottom of it. bought it for $4.00.
I hope pans fit this category.
