I recently purchased this pan thinking it would be like many others I have experienced in the past. But it wasn't. It is a heavy duty, excellent, non-sticking pan. I do all the cooking in my home and have for over 40 years of being married. My wife simply doesn't cook. So when my other non-stick surface pan died I went shopping. I read with great interest other reviews of the Berndes tradition and decided to give this a try. We lived in Germany for two years and most things built by German companies, sadly, far exceed most American companies for the same product. This is true for this pan. The price is a little higher than the other brand names, but the quality far exceeds your expectations. I don't think you will be disappointed. As soon as Christmas is over and I see where our budget is, I am going to order another one.
