Against my better judgment I have just bought the cheapest non-stick saucepan imaginable, paying just £1.50 (about $2.25). Is this good value, as I don't expect it to last more than a few months, or would I have done better to follow my original intention of buying a good one for about £30, in the hopes that it would last for years? PS First time I used it I cooked a magnificent scrambled egg which didn't stick at all, and next time I used it, I boiled some lentils dry, which you are not supposed to do with teflon pans. It still seems to be OK.

That's why I don't go to Starbucks - but it's still sooooo disappointing
I am not a Teflon fan but they still get a lot of negative comments which are not deserved. The new Teflon is chemical free and is more resilient. However,, there is a lot of cheap nonstick out still that is unsafe - not Teflon
So you reckon any sickness the day after use of pan would be due to excess Teflon and not alcohol?
I agree with your general rule! I had some Le Creuset metal casserole dishes which have passed from my mother to me and now to my children, and likely to go on for years. But my experience with teflon coating is that it doesn't last a lifetime
