While setting up house I needed some relatively inexpensive cookware. I mostly cook for myself, thus I rarely make anything requiring a huge skillet or wok. I did want to splurge a bit on one large, deep skillet and this is what I chose.

The skillet isn't too light or too heavy. The weight speaks to its quality. It's nonstick and cleans easily, especially after few uses. The dented lip on each side helps when pouring things out of the skillet, and there's one on each side so it's useful for both right and left handed people. The presence of the lip doesn't make it any more difficult to clean either. However, with the lip it may be difficult to find a lid that gives a tight fit on the pan, so keep that in mind.

It's about 12 inches wide and 3 inches deep, making it appropriate for larger dishes, and in some cases can even serve as a substitute for a pot. The handle isn't the most sturdy thing in the world, but it can be tightened with a screwdriver easily enough. Heat seems to spread and conduct well, and the heat doesn't transfer to the handle.

Overall this skillet is nice, and can serve as a "use all the time" piece of cookware. With the relatively inexpensive price, if something catastrophic happens to it, another one won't set you back much!
