To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
After trying very many alternatives that were greener, I came back to this pen knowing full well that the chemicals are questionable.
It’s been a few months, mostly make morning eggs in it, never put it beyond medium, very light spray of olive oil (though when I forget it still works) cleaning is a breeze. Working as well as it did on day one. There is no nonstick that is going to last forever, but this one’s already doing much better than previous ceramic or greener coatings out there (had an expensive ceramic pan by the 2 name German company that didn’t even make it to six months). This is a hand wash only product as well.
I did my research, concluded that this was relatively safe if it doesn’t get to high temperatures, cheaper than most, still slick and slippery non-sticky.
