I love the technology of the non-stick coating. I can cook with absolutely no oil, and nothing sticks to the pans coating. Not to mention that I don't breath the toxic Teflon gasses. My only negative, and the only reason it didn't get 5 stars, is that the handle is extremely thin for such a heavy pan. If the food is anywhere near off center in the pan, you have to be careful your hands aren't wet or greasy, or the pan does a flip when you lift it off the stove. I'd still buy more, though.
