Since I have started using induction hobs for most of my cooking, I really missed having a nonstick fry pan for things like eggs and this fits the bill perfectly. The description said the color was black, but mine came in red. For me this was great because I would have ordered red if I had that as a choice. It was just a pleasant surprise for me. It has a honey comb bottom, not a totally smooth nonstick surface, which you can't tell from the description.
