I'm so glad I purchased this set...my first stainless cookware. I sat the pans on the counter and stared at them for a few days as I was super intimidated to use them given the mixed responses. My first dish was eggs and sausage. I followed everything I've read on blogs - heat the pan, heat butter/oil, then add food. My fluffy, professional looking eggs slid right out the pan without sticking at all. Whew! Now, I can get to cooking.
Yoksel said: 9" and 11". I usually find anything less than 10" too small for any cooking. As you may know, skillets are measured across the top. But because of the sloping sides, the cooking area on the bottom is much smaller. On a 10" pan, the bottom is usually less than 8" across, and could be less than 7".
However, French skillets have much less slope to the sides than a traditional skillet. Thus a 9" French skillet has about the same cooking surface area as a 10" traditional skillet. Also, the sides are higher on a French skillet, so it can hold a higher volume as well.
