We can’t vouch for whether fusing nonstick compounds with diamond crystals is what makes the difference for this pan, but we can testify that sticking wasn’t an issue in our review of nonstick skillets (issue #97, pp. 36-37). The straight sides of this 11-inch pan give it a roomy 9-1/2-inch flat cooking surface, the largest of any of the skillets we tested. Eggs fried with no oil flipped with ease and slid out of the pan. The pressure-cast-aluminum disk base conducted heat evenly and browned foods beautifully. The small helper handle is a nice aid in lifting.
The Swiss Diamond fry pan weighs 2 lb. 9 oz. It can be purchased at parkers-pantry.com for $84.99.
