I'm wondering....how many people live in Doc's household? How much use would these pans get?
I live alone, and some mid-price range stuff from Wal-mart works wonderfully well for me. I bought a good set about seven years ago, and the teflon is still awesome and is in tact, The only issues I have is that the handles tend to get loose somewhat quickly. However...that's what screwdrivers are for.
My brother and his wife are raising their kids with English and Burmes. English is primary, but Burmese gets sprinkled in here and there, mostly for common words like grandma/grandpa, hot, hurts, hungry.
