I purchased this pan as an exact replacement in my set, which I had for at least 5 years. The teflon coating had gone bad.
This pan arrive in what appeared to be perfect condition. I cooked on it once, electric stove and hand washed it. When it dried I was surprised by the bottom of the pan. It was all chalky. I washed it again but it is still the same. I already threw the packaging away otherwise I would return it. Perhaps I got a defect. I am afraid to use it as I dont trust what it's made out of.
I love this little pan! I had my first one for years before finally replacing it. As with any nonstick cookware, the enamel does start to wear after a lot of use, but this pan gets near daily use and lasted for years before I was no longer happy with the cooking surface. The perfect size for cooking 2 eggs over easy (it's most common job in our household) but is also a good size to saute up veggies for 1, toast nuts, or cook other small quantities. Great non-stick coating, and a great size to add to your collection.
I love it! I have an old Cuisinart (white inside) that's gotten scratched. I make scrambled cheesy eggs daily & the old pan was hard to clean. This model is great; the only part a bit fiddly to clean are the rivets. It doesn't tip when empty, unlike my old one, & is noticeably heavier. Even heat distribution I've learned how to take care: no hi heat, don't clean til cool, no metal & when new: wash/dry, rub on oil & heat on medium 2-3 minutes.
