Again, not a question. A few months ago I asked about the gauge of aluminium pans and you responded by saying it can be confusing because one manufacturer uses one sort of gauge and another a different one. You did comment though that a base of about 6 mm is a good indicator to use.
About a month ago I bought an aluminium frying pan, seasoned it as you suggested and it's great. It's so easy to clean in hot soapy water if something sticks. My only problem is that he handle is 26cm long and the pan won't fit in the oven. I'm so keen on them that I'll probably buy another one when it needs replacing.
So thank you once again for your guidance.
