If you're looking for a pan with a bottom that's warped/uneven (or will be shortly after the first heating/cooling cycle), then look no further!

Like a VW compares to a Lamborghini ... These pans individually run about $6.00 each normally at WalMart .. thin .. cheap .. bottom of the line .. but sometimes that's all you need ...

I think you should go to a thrift store and get one good pan. Or one at regular price. I'd rather have one ok ceramic than any nonstick pans ever again.

Do it for your health.

No idea. I don't own Rachael Ray cookware, either.

When I posted the deal, I was envisioning these skillets could be used by college students, or first time homebuyers, or in campers / RVs. I wasn't envisioning them as a competitior to Calphalon, etc. (I'm actually fairly impressed that these aluminum non-stick frying pans are so inexpensive. This is a heck of a deal for someone who could use it.)

I hear you. Good great deal indeed, regardless.

Though I live like a college student and I've found after buying one decent pan, that that's all I really need. They clean fast and cook good enough that they pay for themselves in time saved washing/cooking.

Nothing forged about these except maybe false advertising. These are stamped pans ... Only pans that are forged are cast iron.

OK. I have used 4 diffe rent main stays pans n pots. Stay AWAY from mainstays. For eg, a 6 inch pot , brand new, I used to boil eggs with water, the nonstick layer peeled away. It's notr at all worth it. Another skillet just became useless in few months. Thrift store would have better quality at most times

I was going to say, what is forged on these cheap aluminum pans?

I think that technically these pressed pans (which is the standard way to make pans) technically is a type of forging. The pan is bent into shape instead of having material cut away or cast from molten metal.

Cast iron on the other hand (as the name suggests) is not forged. They just pour molten iron into a mold that is pan-shaped.


But I'm sure the main point was that including the word "forged" in the name of these pans is a cheap way to make them seem fancier than they actually are.

That isn't really "living like a college student." Not that it matters, but I'd say these are perfect for a College student, because the typical student won't use them at all. (Obviously there are exceptions.)
