5 or 6 inch frying pan

When I was in Cairo, I bought a small Tefal frying pan that was just perfect for making a frittata for one. I was going to take it with us, but with our overstuffed bags, I had to leave it behind. I figured I could get one here in the US, but I have been all over the internet with absolutely no luck whatsoever. Any ideas? It has to be non-stick...

  1. Try searching using the spelling T-Fal

    Would this be too small?

      That's a little too small. Today, I decided to get into the car and hit some bricks and mortar, and I found one that's 51/2" that I think will work just fine. Third time was the charm -- I hit Target first, then TJ Maxx and found what I was looking for at Bed Bath and Beyond.

        Lot of traveling for a frying pan, but happy to hear you finally got what you wanted. Curious what the brand was since that was a size so many of us found difficult to find online.

          It was actually a no-name brand. There was a sticker on the bottom of the inside that said Teflon, and the exterior is red enamel. They had blue enamel too. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems to have decent weight for its size. We'll see how it cooks. I'm still missing my little T-fal pan though!

          BTW, not a lot of traveling was involved -- all three stores were in the same mall complex and very close together so I didn't even have to re-park.

            I'm still curious why you didn't find anything searching for T-fal online...?

              I don't think roxlet was saying she couldn't find ANY T-Fal, just that she couldn't find a 5 or 6-inch pan.

              Also, it turns out that Tefal is a spelling the company uses in other parts of the world. It's evidently T-Fal mainly in the Western Hemisphere.

                1. re: Shaw Oliver

                  Yes. See above. First post. She said that was too small.

                  1. re: Shaw Oliver

                    Yes, JoanN is right. As I mentioned above, that's a bit too small for what I need, which would be more of a TWO egg pan. Anyway, I found something that I think will work. And Joan N, you're right -- I wrote Tefal because that's what I had on my fry pan. It must be a size that's just made for Africa or at least places that are not North America!

      2. Is this a bit too small?

        I'm sure I've seen them around in real life, just not that popular online.

        1. T-Fal has the one egg wonder pan that is 4 3/4" but besides that the only 6" ones I've seen lately are cast iron.

          1. Agree with the others - it was a spelling error...

            But even if I search "tefal frying pan" in Google is corrects the spelling for me and gives me good results so I have no idea what you were searching for or how you were searching.

            1. I just bought this one in Toronto. Not only is it perfect for two fried eggs my daughter says it's cute.
