Demeyere Proline 5-Star? Is it the best ~$200 skillet
I'm looking for a better stainless steel skillet. I have tried a few pieces of All-Clad and I hate the long handles on the skillets and pots. The Demeyere Proline seems like the best choice based on what I have seen on Youtube but, I don't want to over look other European brands that make a superior stainless steel skillet (no non-stick coatings please).
The Demeyere Proline 5-Star 11" Frying Pan seems to be one of the best if not the "best" with its 7-layer copper/silver encapsulated based that that runs edge-to-edge and up the sides of the pan. These seem to run about $200.
What other brands should I consider? Has anyone used this skillet against another well known model that can provide some cooking performance comments?
