comment What's the functional different between a skillet and a saute pan?
It's not necessarily true that skillets have low profiles these days. Many manufacturers are making skillets that have lids and a reasonable amount of depth to them. All-Clad markets them as "French skillets", for example. Lodge cast-iron skillets also have plenty of depth to them. So either skillets or saute pans could make a fine all-in-one, depending on how they're made. Keep in mind: the extra depth could make certain kinds of frying a tad more unwieldly, and look for pour spouts etc. in the rim of the pan that could compromise the effectiveness of covered cooking.

comment When is a cooking oil not appropriate to substitute for another?
Along these lines would also be trying to substitute toasted sesame oil (the dark stuff) for plain old sesame oil (the light stuff). The two are light-years apart in terms of flavor.

For a savory pancake that might actually be nice! Haven't had one of those in a long time though. Hm...
