I don't like to say anything bad about t-fal as in Europe its very famous and valuable brand and I've had few pans before which works pretty good. but seams in USA for me its super difficult to find best pan(((. So I like to cook and do this every day but I have bad luck with fry pans and I will explain why - they work good for me for a year and than some magic happen and they getting bad each day so if we speak about this specific pan I can say that I didn't see this non stick layer in work so good. its still stick and after that its hard to clean pan. rest of characteristics I found good enough especially price but I am not sure something can bring me back to purchase this brand pans again. when I look at all reviews I just can say this pan not for me but maybe you will love it more!
