Trying to upgrade my kitchen. Anyone can recommend a pan for sauté and frying? I’ve heard of Caraway Home but any other suggestions? Most important for them to be nonstick and relatively lightweight (not cast iron). Budget up to $150 but good quality cheap also appreciated.

All-clad professional. Check out sales around Xmas and sometimes the deals at Williams-Sonoma. You can often get a 10-inch fry & a 6-inch fry for like $150 as a package deal. They last forever

For non stick i cook with my cast iron for everything. Get a good layer of seasoning to begin, but then after for daily maintenance i follow these steps:
1. Let pan cool completely then add some hot water and scrub hard bits off with a chain Mail link (on Amazon for $6)
2. Scrub a little more with a sponge and some hot soapy water.
3. Put it on the burner on medium high heat for a few minutes until it begins to smoke
4. Turn off the heat and put a little oil (i use canola). Wipe it around with paper towels and then wipe again, this time pretending you made a mistake putting oil in there in the first place. Let it cool then use again. Lodge cast irons are pretty cheap and it’s clean cooking.

I already have a cast iron which is why I specifically exclude it from my question. Nothing against cast irons here.

Nordic Ware is legit the best quality! I love them so much. if anything happens to it they will send you a replacement for free, I’ve done that many times.

The best non-stick pan I’ve tried recently is Material Non-Stick Pan, and I’m someone who stir fries everyday and is willing to shell out $$$. The only drawback is that this frying pan is a little small for me, but when I want to stir fry larger volumes, I usually use my wok. Carbon-steel might be a good alternative for you if you don’t want the weight of cast-iron. I believe Made In makes carbon-steel pans but I have not used them myself.

All Clad D5 or Demeyere for sautéing and frying.
If you need a nonstick (for omelets or grilled cheese) go with a Calphalon from Homegoods. Even the best Nonstick coatings wear after a few years so they aren’t worth paying extra for. Though I will say Scanpan and Greenpan perform really well.
The Caraway Always pan is a pos.

Try a ceramic frying pan. I use all-clad for other cooking purposes, but my inexpensive (under $20) ceramic frying pan is great.
