This question already has an answer here:
Recently, I found a small but deep scratch on my pan. I can see the metalic color on the scratch. I am not sure how much serious it is.
Now, I want to buy a new one. I see different prices with different qualities and I have no idea what to buy. I live alone and I cook for one person but sometimes for several meals (3 meals).
Some people suggest me to buy a thin one not thick one. Expect for thickness what is the difference between pans?
If I look at the pan's surface pattern, does it give me any clue?
I also see some pans with white dots on it. What are these types of pans?
