Rated 5 out of 5 by Tobeshared from Great purchase This is a great purchase. I am planning to purchase a few more.Date published: 2019-08-21Rated 5 out of 5 by KKBB from Great nonstick pan, has lasted well I bought this about a year ago and use it almost daily to make scrambled eggs (and other things) but it has held up really well. It has not chipped or scratched and it is extremely easy to clean. The nonstick works great and the white is great for daily use to ensure it is clean. I highly recommend. I am buying as a holiday gift for family this year.Date published: 2018-11-12Rated 1 out of 5 by Jhunter from Nonstick coating chips badly I really liked this pan at first. After about three uses, the yellowing on it concerned me and I came to this website to see how best to clean that. I used the baking soda and it helped but that didn't really remove all stains. Then after another couple of uses, I noticed two places on the interior where the coating had completely chipped off. I ALWAYS use rubber tools and I had only cooked hash browns in the skillet. There's no good reason this should happen after so few uses. This pan wasn't expensive but I really wish it could have lasted just a bit longer.Date published: 2018-06-22Rated 4 out of 5 by NYcitygirl from Overall a good pan The pan is very non stick, and light, so it is easy to use. The inside of the pan cleans up like a dream. However, the outside of the pan is another matter. If any grease drips or splatters on the outside, it will permanently stain the pan. I have used it about six times, and the exterior has many stains, and there is a general yellowing on the sides. It does not affect the functioning of the pan, it just doesn't look very nice. So, this is one you can't hang on the pot rack, it has to be hidden in the cabinet.Date published: 2017-11-28Rated 5 out of 5 by CarribeanQueen from Smart and Stylish As luck would have it, the pan I liked and was hoping to purchase in another size, was no longer available online. In viewing the endless assortment of other options, this stylish white and gray one grabbed my attention. It has performed as well as it looks. The chemical-free surface is super non-stick and easy to clean. And the indicator on the handle that shows when it is heated or has cooled down, makes for a smart pan.Date published: 2017-08-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Homecook from Great cookware! I purchased this fryer about two weeks ago and I love it! So easy to clean, and love the dot on the handle that tells me when the pan is ready..Looking forward to purchasing additional piecesDate published: 2017-08-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Eamus Catuli from The White Ceramic Stands Out! I recently bought this pan because the white ceramic really stands out among every other cookware. It's easy to clean and has stayed white after cooking on it for several days in a row. The Thermopoint technology is also a plus and helps me to cook my meals faster and more efficiently.Date published: 2017-08-07
Unable to leverage the non-stick properties as advertised. Eggs stick more than new 'Teflon'. Trying to find more detail about usage. I am willing to acknowledge I'm not using it right. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller??Hi Thomas Keller Wannabe, Thank you for your comments, we certainly appreciate you letting us know about your experience. To successfully use a ceramic coated pan, the used temperature must be medium to low. Ceramic coating doesn’t react well to high heat, prolonged exposure to high heat will break down the nonstick properties therefore causing your pan to stick. In addition to high heat, we found that oils/ fats that come in a spray can is also not recommended. They tend to leave a residue that over times builds up and will also cause your pan to stick. If your pan is sticking, the vendor can assist you within their warranty program. If you have any further assistance, please email them at email@example.com.Date published: 2019-07-01
