Would I recommend this to a friend...we already have!!!! We bought the high dollar stainless cook ware many many years ago and really, its good stuff...BUT! This pan beats the dog out of all of them! We cooked some salmon this Sunday, some stir fry veggies, and wiped it clean with a paper towel. If you have seen the commercial about the "green" pan, this is the same material...our green pan cooks the exact same way. NO, ZERO, NADA, NOTHING WILL STICK!! easiest omelet in the world goes like this. Cover the pan with grated cheese...cook until it starts turning brown....scramble 3 eggs and pour over cheese. When done, it will slide out of the pan onto the plate.
Pros: It is pretty. So far food does not stick. Easy to clean up. Cons: It is not level--will not sit flat on burner. The pan doesn't slide smoothly when on cooktop--sounds like it is scratching. The hole in t he handle won't hand on my wall hook--it is too fat to go over hook.
This pan is so light. I bought this pan because my mom was visiting me and my regular pans are not non-stick and they are heavy. I ended up liking this pan so much, I use it so much more than my other pans. Would buy more if I could figure out what brand it is.
I was looking for a fry pan that didn't need scrubbing every time I fried eggs, hash, fish,etc. My husband suggested ceramic which I found @ an outlet store. I loved it from the first use, and since then it has become my most frequently used pan. I was so excited about the non stick and easy clean up that I bought 4 of these ceramic fry pans for my children. They like them as much as I. Only wish they came in colors other than red and green as they don't match everyone's kitchen décor, but for the price they are a terrific value.
I was surprised to see that it is a very deep skillet more like for stir fry and things like that. I do not do stir fry but do cook a lot of pepper steak and stuff like that so I will keep it. I wish it had a lid but it doesn't. Hopefully I can find one at a thrift shop.
We cooked eggs in this fry pan and nothing stuck to the pan. It was o easy to clean. It is a bit lighter in weight than I would have imagined, but this pan will certainly be our fry pan of choice from now on. It is ceramic and doesn't have the health problems that other non-stick surfaces have and nothing comes off in the food as with iron pans.
