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.
This has become my all-time favourite pan for frying anything. It has a very tough nonstick coating and everything just slides off it. It’s a breeze to clean up with just a paper towel. I have washed it a few times when something was burnt on, but all it needed was warm water, no detergent. I only had to let it sit for a few minutes and the burnt food slid right off. I’m very impressed, having had disappointing experiences with non-stick fry pans in the past which lost their non-stickiness very quickly. I’ve had it a couple of months now, and use it practically every day. Looks just as good as new. The other thing I really like about it is that it is perfectly flat, and with a ceramic top, this is important.
I bought this pan because I wanted a good quality fry pan with a lid especially for making sunny side up eggs. The pan works very well, except that it rises a little in the middle, so any oil or margarine that you put into the pan settles on the outside edge of the pan. This causes the pan to cook stuff too much in the middle of the pan. That is why I only gave it 4 stars for heat distribution.
Best skillet I ever owned. The trick is to set the temperature to medium. It will heat up in no time. Makes a beautiful stew or sautéed mushrooms. Easy clean up. I like the depth of the pan with straight walls. You have a large cooking surface and plenty of room to make a large meal. The glass lid is ideal, as you can watch the cooking process without lifting the lid.
I bought this fry pan two weeks ago and it is one of the best items in my kitchen. The pan is well built and very sturdy. The glass top is great to see the food as it is cooking, and it also fits my other stainless 12" pan.
Cleaning up is a snap. After using the pan all I need to do is wipe the inside of the pan with a damp sponge towel and it is ready for the next use. Food doesn't stick at all. Clean up works best if the pan is slightly warm.
I read some of the other reviews that were not satisfactory in the buyers opinion and the only thing I can see is that they didn't follow the manufacturers recommendations to "season" the pan before first use and to keep the heat lower when cooking. How can you expect a pan to work properly when you don't follow the recommendations ?
I would recommend this pan to anyone who loves to cook with a non-stick pan.
I like the high sides so food doesn't spill out when I'm cooking. Heats up fairly quickly. I always use a small amount of oil so food does not stick at all and I love the glass lid so I can see what's happening inside the pan. Very easy to clean. The only thing I don't like about it is the bottom of the pan is very slippery on the stove. Move the handle out of the way because if you accidentally bump into it you're likely to empty your pan all over the place.
Llegó perfectamente empaquetado y sin defectos. Llevo con él un par de semanas y funciona de maravilla, no se le pega nada, y lo cuido mucho, por supuesto. Trae sus instrucciones para el cuidado. Pesa un poco con respecto a otros más ligeros pero me gusta, se siente resistente. Aun no lo pruebo en el horno pero este que viene con mango de silicona se supone que aguanta hasta 180 grados celsius.
Llevo unos pocos días usandolo pero indudablemente es una maravilla de sartén, las instrucciones de uso sugieren "curarlo" cada 10 ciclos en lavavajillas pero de igual forma es una excelente alternativa para cocinar sin aceite, no se le pega nada y lo restos o manchas que se le puedan llegar a quedar se limpian bastante sencillo al lavar. Eso sí es algo pesado por lo que es un poco más engorroso de lavar que cualquier otro sartén. Actualizaré en unos meses con mis impresiones después de más tiempo de uso.
Me gusta cocinar, y lo hago a diario.. siempre buscándole un nuevo detalle a la sazón. Por lo mismo se aprecia un buen sartén.. un sartén al que nada se le pega, un sartén que dure si se le trata bien, un sartén lo suficientemente hondo, como para darle otros usos, a modo de olla; un sartén con tapa que ajuste bien.. quizá un poco caro, pero nada del otro mundo.
The best option out there. Never sticks, stands the test of time. I love the option of just putting in the oven as is! Having a cover was also a requirement when I purchased this. I wish I could really put it in the dishwasher tho.. they say you can but then list all the limitations and warnings... I don't understand how they manage to create materials that can withstand 400 degrees but fall apart with detergents...
