This skillet was one that I took a chance on. I settled for buying this even though it was not deep enough for my preference. I decided to give it a try and hoped I could work with this skillet. It turns out that the skillet did cook the types of food I make, but after several times of cooking the inside of this cooker started to flake off. At first I was not sure what the problem was and then I realized the teflon coating was actually coming off and getting into my food. I have always been very careful when cleaning and using the proper utensils, so that I never scratched the interior. Unfortunately, even with the careful upkeep could not keep the interior coating from coming off. I would have kept this skillet, if it were not for the problem interior coating, even though it was annoyingly shallow, but once the flakes started to happen, I had to stop using it. I cannot recommend this product, because I feel it has a safety issue for toxins in the food.
