But Iíll real glad you like your foo-fooo pan.
I recently bought a new non-stick for frying potatoes, they stick bad because of the starch.
However, I fry sausage, hamburger, steak, etc in my stainless skillet. The trick is to let it get pretty hot before you put in the meat. I use olive or canola oil as it heats. By that I mean it's hot when I pour in the oil.

How does olive oil work at high heat? I thought it was a low/medium heat oil.

I don't have it smoking hot.
I seldom use that kind of heat, but I'd use crisco if I did.
Medium is as high as I need.

I use olive oil on my cornbread skillet and the oven at 375.

Somebody gave us a set of faberware pots and pans when we got married forty years ago and we are still using it along with two cast iron pans.

Farberware and Club were two big names in cookware when I was teenager.
I think Club is now gone along with a lot of other big names when I was young.

Our old WearEver pot and pans worked great but non-stick they no longer are.
I found this last year while trying to buy just certain WearEver products, and at least at that time could only get sets which I did not need. (I just checked and theone identical one to ours is now only T-fal and in sets only)
Anyway.

One quick note before we get started with some product reviews: WearEver and T-Fal are pretty much the same brand. They’re owned by the same parent company, they make very similar cookware, and many retailers use both names when referring to WearEver cookware sets. When it comes to inexpensive non-stick cookware, I’m a big fan of T-Fal, too, so feel free to pick up a comparable T-Fal set if you can find one at a lower price.


From here -- another good site to check out how good cookware is.

All-clad is owned by the same corporation as T-Fal.

Thank goodness, aluminum was exposed at least a couple decades ago !

Sure do! I have one in my camping gear as part of my cookware. Carefully seasoned with lard it works very well.
