Rated 1 out of 5 by FLAtraveler from EVERYTHING STICKS!! I bought the 8 1/2 inch pan when they became available. They looked terrific. That's where it ends. Similar to other reviews everything sticks now matter how much oil, butter or bacon grease is used. Very disappointing. I want my money back. Its rare that I write a review, and am reluctant to skewer a product but this pan was so disappointing. I have had better results with many other far less expensive pans. It is not only about the cost. WS and Hestan are about quality, but this falls far short. Don't waste your money. I have given this product a number of chances thinking I was doing something wrong with the pan. Its just is so subpar, I recommend any other brand.Date published: 2017-08-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt from I think these pans are FABULOUS I have been trying new pans for months now seeing what has come onto the market. I have many All Clad pans, but really prefer better non stick properties. I've tried most every ceramic pan I can find, and while the Berndes signocast are delightful, the constant chipping tells me they will not be long term. I saw the Hestan pan in store and had to have one. They are beautiful, which always appeals to me in a product. But I think the one pan I have tried cooks like a dream. Properly oiled, the pan cooks perfectly and is essentially non stick. It heats very quickly, and evenly, and it has become my go to small pan.Date published: 2017-06-23Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky from Gorgeous pans! I love these pans! They are beautiful. I had All Clad Limited prior to theseTo prevent sticking in the stainless cooking surface i had cleaned with baking soda. In their enclosed instructions, Hestan suggests using vinegar which works great. I also clean with a soft scrub cleaner and they look brand new. No scrubbin is necessary but it removes water stains. I assume people who are having trouble with sticking pans didn't read the instructions. I also have not used metal utensils nor do I put them in the dishwasher. Cleaning is so easy and the dishwasher always seems to destroy pans. I love these pans! They surface is slick so slick. My stainless never had a slippery surface like this. Cleaning is very easy. The materials the pans are made from are healthier than nonstick. I love know my food doesn't contain toxic chemicals from the cookware. They are the most beautiful cookware I've ever seen.Date published: 2017-06-04Rated 1 out of 5 by david from Stick Around It's a beautiful, light-weightl pan, but this is about it. All food seems to stick to the pan; no matter how much or how little grease and heat you use; no matter what you cook. Everything from meat to eggs to cheese seems to stick to this pan like a fly to honey. I gave it to my cleaning lady, telling her, if she can make it work, then have at it. At least it cleans easily. And, at least the wildlife living in the NYC sewers are not letting all of that stick-on food go to waste. Pretty useless. A Skillet About Nothing.Date published: 2017-04-29Rated 5 out of 5 by HousewaresAddicted from impressive performance I've had the 12" skillet for several weeks now. its beautiful and cooks beautifully. it works great on my gas stove and the surface area is great. other skillets i have used have smaller bottoms and higher sides- this is the opposite- you could roast a whole chicken in this pan! i was worried about the dull interior after making some sautéed mushrooms but after using some bar keepers friend, it went to the original polished finish. the flush rivets are easy to clean too! its so shiny that i love leaving it on my stovetop =)Date published: 2017-04-21Rated 1 out of 5 by Val J from No so great I just received my Hestan Nano bond 81/2 in fry pan used it for the first time today,and very disappointed with it for the price I paid to bring it into Canada not cheap,anyways I cooked crepes and the bottom of the pan was easy to clean but the sides of the pan I can't get the sticky stuff off ,would like to return this ,very dissatisfied ValDate published: 2017-03-25Rated 1 out of 5 by Irina from Did not deliver. I was very exited to try my new Hestan 8,5 inch stainless-steel skillet that I bought few days ago. In my kitchen I use All Clad d5 stainless steel nonstick fry pan to make an omelet or cook salmon fillet . As much as it easy to use, I have to replace it often because this pan is easily scratched. So for some time I have been looking for an alternative and was willing to pay extra. Today I used it for a first time to fry a salmon - total disaster! Even though I used low heat it was impossible to flip my fish, I have to scraped it from the pan. Now it's been seating in my sink, soaking in soapy water for couple of hours because I was not able to clean it . Taking it back to the store!!!Date published: 2017-03-25Rated 5 out of 5 by bachelor chef from The best designed pans I've ever used It really shows that Hestan has really thought out the design of their pans very well. I clean all of my cooking pans by hand, so how easily they clean up is very important to me. The cooking surface cleans up nearly as well as any of the top non-stick pans. Food sticks to my pan just slightly more than the high end non-stick pans, but the pans clean out very easily. One nice feature these pans have is that the coating is applied not only to the interior of the pan but also to the exterior of the pan. So not only is the interior easy to clean, but the exterior is easy to clean too. You can't say that even about the high end non-stick pans. The pans are also light, making them easy to flip food using a shake and toss of the pan. And the rims are well designed so that you can pour sauces and liquids without worrying about the liquid running down the sides. I also like the handles. They are well designed for a comfortable grip near the end of the handle and also for a short grip with a hand stop near the base of the handle. The hanging eyelet is also nice and big to easily hang the pan. I also like how the rivets are somewhat flush to the interior surface of the pan. They could maybe be a little more flush to the surface, but they are flush enough to make it easy to clean. About the only portion of the design that could really use a little improvement is near the top of the base of the handle. It creates a little pocket between the handle and rim that could make it hard to keep clean for people like me that want the whole pan to look spotless and like brand new. The pans heat evenly and the exterior coating of the pan makes the bottom of the pan look like you've basically never have even set it on the burner after wiping it off. I found that quite outstanding. No brown tinting. No little streak marks, etc. I haven't tried metal utensils on my pans and I don't plan to. So I can't say how that will affect them. I like them too much to even risk it. After several uses, my pans look as pristine as when I first pulled them out of the box. These are going to be my everyday go-to pans over even my high end non-stick pans because they are lighter, pour liquids better, they cook great and the exterior is easier to clean. If I was going to open a high end professional restaurant, these are the pans I'd have my cooks using. Hestan's attention to detail for qualities that make a pan great to cook with is second to none. This is a well designed pan that is great to cook with, easy to clean, stays looking immaculate, that I plan to cook with for decades to come.Date published: 2017-02-16
