crap.  Now I have to add something to the budget.  Okay, I can't do it,
right away, but can anyone recommend to me the right kind of pan for cooking
these?  Something easy to clean, if at all possible?  I know there's a lot
of variation in quality of cooking implements, so those of you who have
already tried this....  which pans should I get, and which avoid?

Thanks in advance.
