There's another one on sale also, TFal Air Grip. Anyone know what the difference is?

I stepped away from the t-fal brand. It is not the same quality as the ones in Europe. These warp like crazy and the non stick layer comes off easy. Even with seasoning, handwashing only and wooden utensils.

I used a made in France one...and wow. The made in France one is distinctly better than any other pan I've ever used. Not sure where these are made. But you want the France one.

I compared the two in store and they're fairly similar from what I can tell, based on thickness of materials, shape, weight, quality of construction etc. I liked the grip on the Air Grip better and it was cheaper at the same size ($14.99 for 30cm, also 32cm is available for $16.99), so I went with that instead

Thanks will go check these out. Bought a couple T-Fal pans at a Bay sale 2 years ago for around $10 or $15 each. The first one lasted 2 years of daily use, just unwrapped the second one. So it's a good time to get a backup.

Whatever you bought at the bay is probably not what they're offering on sale at CT. If I'm not mistaken these pans are more often than not this price at CT. I think I've been through 3 or 4 of them.

The ones at Costco have rings that are raised ridges on the bottom. The Canadian tire ones are smooth on the bottom.

Although nothing is foolproof, the smooth bottom is less likely to scratch a smoothtop electric range top. I use the Canadian tire ones for exactly this reason.

I do replace them once in a while if I notice any issues with the coating, but they hold up pretty well for the sale price.

You don't season coated pans.
Cookwares only warp when you run them under cold water when they're still hot which would also ruin the coating.
These nonstick pans are not meant to last a long time that's why they're so inexpensive, and just for cooking small easy stuff like pancakes, crepes or frying eggs or omelette

Instructions say to season them. Not running under cold water...
These pans are not cheap when there not on sale and should last years. I know the t-fal frying pan's and wok I had in Europe lasted me almost 10 years...

I went and looked at them today. You're right they were about 1/2 the thickness of the one I had at home.

Ended up picking this one for $15 as a back up pan:

Keeping my expectations low. I pity the customer who paid the sticker price of $75.

non-conductive material, to make it induction safe it would need a conductive bottom.
