Help me find this!! Birthday present for my mom.

My mom has been looking for a small (about 6 ") very shallow skillet for months now. I would love to get one for her birthday.

She has a weak wrist, so cast iron is probably too heavy.

She and I have looked at all the major department stores and some specialty cooking stores with no luck.

Does anyone have a source for these?

  • Try also "griddle pan" as a search. Kind of redundant, but that's what I'm thinking for a non-stick finish with a low-side.

    I hope you find something perfect for her! :)

  • Shallow is hard and basically means crepe pan. The smallest one I found from a quick look is this one: http://www.amazon.com/Norpro-inch-Nonstick-Breakfast-Crepe/dp/B000ST0W24/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1249860665&sr=1-10

    The price certainly is right!

    I only found one and you would have to buy it now before anyone else buys it.

  • Thank you Avarah! I didn't think to look up crepe pan. I've been searching for "shallow skillet" and kept coming up with pans that had too high sides.

    I'll keep looking using your crepe pan suggestion. Mom doesn't want non-stick since it doesn't brown as nicely, so I'll keep looking.

    Thanks so much!

    Couldn't find any 6" ones, but here's 2 10" depending on how much you are looking to spend.
