I absolutely love this fry pan. I first purchased the 12" size. My husband and I nicknamed it "Big Blue". The non-stick surface works better than anything I have ever tried. After being delighted with the performance of the large pan, I wanted one that would be appropriate for smaller cooking tasks, so, I bought both the 10" and the 8". I have had them for about a year and have not been let down. The investment was well worth it. Today, the nonstick surface is in the same great shape as when I bought it. My favorite thing about it is that I can actually flip my egg mixture when making an omelet without fail. Since nothing really stick, clean-up is just a quick wash in warm soapy water. Doesn't Stick Food lifts right off pan, even eggs. Heat Distribution Food heats very evenly. Ease of Handling Sturdy handle. People that don't have strong wrists my find large pan to be heavy. Ease of Cleaning Easy soap and water wash. Once when I did burn something, I did use a little baking soda and gently rubbed. Area came clean. Check manufacturers recommendations to be sure that this is ok. Durability Very well built. Nice heavy stainless steel base and handle.
