This product has some great reviews which is why I bought it and had such high expectations.
I mainly use cast iron but wanted this for frying eggs which I do at least once a week. It was fine for a few weeks and suddenly eggs started sticking to it. It's not terrible, but considering the price and the care I put into this, I was really expecting a lot more.
Plus, it doesn't sit perfectly flat on my glass stove top, so it spins if you bump it at all like there's a small point directly in the middle.
I'm still using it making sure to keep the heat very low to prevent sticking.
There is another pair of Teflon frying pans on Amazon that I plan on purchasing in the near future because of the lackluster performance of this one. Hopefully they'll turn out better than this one.
The finish on the pan probably started chipping 3 months in. The pan was always difficult to clean - never really 'non stick'. There is a layer of burnt material stuck to the bottom which I can't get off. My older non stick pan (different brand) I used for years and it never chipped. It only had a small amount of material on the edges which couldn't be removed. I only replaced it because the handle was loose.
Non stick coating works well, but food sticks to the two exposed rivets on each handle and is hard to clean without risking damage to the surface. The pan also developed a distinct curve on the base after a few uses, making it not suitable for my ceramic cooktop. I would have expected better quality control from a brand like Calphalon.
Seemed like a great pan at first. Heavy, heats well and evenly. Within a few weeks, we started to notice cracks in the finish inside the pan. We don't use anything metal with the pan so no idea how we could've done this. Now there is a larger section of finish pealing off inside the pan. Good thing I used a gift card for this purchase; I would've been really unhappy if I had paid for it.
This product has exceed our expectation! We’re very pleased with it and would highly recommend it to anyone who cooks almost every day of the week. It’s a bit on the heavier side when it comes to cooking pans but a very small disadvantage given the quality of this product.
Received this a few days earlier than expected. Have been using it a few times, so far so good. The pan is non stick as it claims to be, so far no issue. Fingers crossed it'll maintain its non stick properties even after extensive use.
