Default Looking for a non-stick frying pan

I'm looking for a 12" non-stick pan with gently sloping sides to make pancakes. I'm looking for a pan I can keep for years. We are still using a 30 year old teflon-coated pan for this purpose (which I finally have permission from Rickie to replace -- he's the usual pancake chef). It shouldn't be a super-heavy behemoth, as he likes to flip the pancakes by lifting the pan.

Bonus points if:
* you can use metal utensils with it
* it can go in the oven
* it has a lid
* it works with induction
but none of those is critical, as we currently cook on a gas stove, and have other pans that have the other features.

I'm not very price sensitive, and care more about a pan that will hold up.

TIA

Found this, after reading a review here:
https://foodal.com/kitchen/pots-pots...t-frying-pans/

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00E48AYCS...ogi&th=1&psc=1

We have a Tramortina set, stainless steel. I find the handle is too "non-stick," can't tip it one way or the other, but they are very easy to clean.

This one above has a decent handle that I would prefer.

Downside to this COVID is that your hubby won't be able to test-flip.

We recently bought a Le Creuset nonstick and I love it. Not sure about metal utensils. Bought a Le Creuset Dutch over a year or so ago, loved it, then another and another. This is our 4th Le Creuset product, and in our opinion, worth it.

We just got a saute pan from Scanpan. It's non-stick, but it can go in the oven up to 500 degrees. I don't know about using metal utensils though.

We have one of their cast iron dutch ovens, but I didn't even know they made non-stick stuff. They're lovely pans... but you do need to keep an eye out. They've got a lower-cost line that looks the same as their better stuff, but is made in china, and reports say they don't hold up well. I am passing on second hand info, so I could be wrong.

Get the Amazon Basic and toss it out after a year or two.

It's probably worth mentioning that we own a lot of other frying pans. We have a nice large cast iron pan, two stainless steel-with-layer-of-aluminum pans (large and extra large) and a small anodized aluminum omelet pan. This would be a pan that's mostly used for pancakes.
