Great skillet for the price. Doesn't stick as bad as I thought it would. Easy to clean. I bought 3 Caphalons and several other skillets in the $80 price range. This is the best one yet.
The last set of cookware I got about 9 yrs ago, it was an expensive investment, but I thought the the name in itself was as good as the mixer I had bought. WRONG, they had barely lasted 5 years, before all the interior started coming off in MY FOOD. I always cleaned my cookware by hand, but that had no impact to the damage, as it continued to fail. I saved up some money, and finally got what I wanted, and that was this beautiful set from Paula, I could not be happier. I have had the two sets I bought now, for about 4 months, and they still look exactly as they did when they were delivered. I still wash by hand, but that is just my choice, as I am sure they would hold up in the dishwasher just fine. Ladies you must get this set, you have earned it, esp if you love to cook, or not, these have wonderful handles that stay cool, and are made so well, that they stay balanced when removing from stove, which lessens the cause of most burns in the kitchen. I am a nurse, worked in the ER. I have seen first hand what severe burns anyone can get, if you lose grip on a pan, the handles feel like they are made for your hands, with a great soft feel, with more control when you are handling hot items from your cooktop to another location. I didnt know this when I bought them, but they should tell people about this wonderful balance, between the hot pan and the person using it. It just may save alot of people from being severley burned, or a child who is underfoot in the kitchen being badly burned. I know this review is long, but it needed to be to tell about what I noticed using mine. I LOVE them, and they wash up like they are new day after day. I couldnt have made a better choice. I LOVE to cook, and this beautiful aqua set is just what the Doctor ordered. Living and cooking on Grand Lake, in Ok. SO SADLY I am back with a problem, and I am sure if you have had this set of Paula's, you too may have this problem, the coating on the handles is coming OFF down to a black painted something, dont know, but very sad that I took such "LOVING CARE" of this set of cookware. Never in the dishwasher, not even the lids, never scrubbed hard, just a little dish soap and a sponge and rinse and dry and put away, never stacked or anything I can think of that would cause this. I am going to try to write her and make her aware of this problem, please do the same if you have this problem, OH and it wasnt caused from heat on the handles on the smooth top range I have, the handles never got hot, so it is a mystery to me how this could happen, but not a happy camper. And now the insides are pitting out some, taking tiny places where the non-stick surface is inside all the set I bought. Hope this helps, I just hate that this has happened, I LOVE THEM SO MUCH, and being a widow on a fixed income, well I will just say, I had to save up for a while to be able to even buy this set of Pans.
