Help Me Convince My Husband to Love Our New Giant Sauté Pan!

Q: After much lusting and waiting, I finally purchased a massive 6-quart All-Clad stainless steel sauté pan. I absolutely love it and have been braising, searing, and roasting to my heart's content. The problem is that my husband hates it! I know Faith has written about her love of the big pan: any tips to help my husband learn to love this pan?

The only time he ever uses a real big pan is to make pancakes and he insists that it is absolutely impossible to do so with this thing. I'm curious — have any readers found a way to successfully make pancakes in a sauté pan that's not nonstick/cast iron? Any other help?

Editor: If your husband is anything like mine, some awesome steak will do the trick. A big pan like that will let you sear several steaks at once — enough for a whole dinner party!

Readers, what are your ideas for helping Caroline's husband love this pan?
