Probably one of the most useful pieces of cookware, a skillet is a go-to in the kitchen for everyday use. You want something durable, reliable, and easy to use, and nothing answers the call better than an Anolon’s Advanced Home nonstick pan. Lifestyle Director Lisa notes “when it comes to nonstick skillets, it’s hard to beat anything by Anolon,” and she ranked their 10.5-inch skillet on the Best List for that exact reason. Thankfully, Anolon has a whole family of products, and we found the skillet’s little sister on sale at Macy’s for a whopping 50 percent off! The 8.5-inch skillet, normally $49.99, is now only $24.99. For something so practical and reliable, it’s hard to pass up on such a deal. But like many of Macy’s epic sales, you have to act fast because the deal only lasts until Jan. 10! 

So what makes Anolon’s Advanced Home Hard-Anodized skillet so reliable that it ended up on our Best List? First, it’s constructed from hard-anodized aluminum, which heats more evenly and is twice as hard as stainless steel. Second, it’s coated with a sapphire-reinforced nonstick surface which lasts 16 (!) times longer than traditional nonstick pans and is safe to use with metal utensils. It’s also oven safe up to 400 degrees and has a secure gripping handle. Something that can take the heat both literally and figuratively in the kitchen is a worthy investment! 

What’s great about the 8.5-inch version is the sheer versatility of having something on hand for the small tasks. Think of that quick fried egg for breakfast or a super melty grilled cheese for lunch. You don’t need to break out anything big for those daily tasks, and even when you get fancy with crepes for two, you’ll have your little reliable pan on hand. The nonstick surface means neither your food nor your cleanup gets stuck regardless of what’s heating up. Plus, the 8.5-inch is compact enough to store in any cabinet, no matter the size of your kitchen space. 

Just in case you need further convincing, Lisa notes that the newer Advanced Home nonstick skillets are “even better than our old pick,” and they are backed by a lifetime guarantee. Add that to the steep 50 percent discount and you’ll be thanking yourself for snagging this deal every time you step into the kitchen.
