    I think any nonstick pan will do. There is no reason to buy really a sturdy construction pan because the weakness link will the nonstick surface. For example, All Clad LTD nonstick is probably unnecessary.

    You probably do want a nonstick pan for sauting. It defeats the whole purpose of sauteing.

      I have a "Simply Calphalon" (the discount line) 8" omelet that I use for 2-egg omelets. I love it. If you do 3 egg omelets, I would go with something bigger.

      I use it for cooking lots of things, and I never use metal utensils or put it in the dishwasher. Its worn well IMO.
