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.
Spike always seemed to be amazingly badass but ALSO laid back as hell. From the way his first priority after near death is a cigarette to how he keeps his hair, he strikes me as a guy who'd sound like he does.
