When you take this product out of its package, you know you're in for something different. When you hear "non-stick", you likely think "teflon". This pan is no comparison. The HexClad has as a special metal coating that allows you to use metal utensils. It has a hybrid design to allow for a nonstick pan with the benefits of cooking on stainless. If you get food or debris on the exterior, it’s easier to clean than normal nonstick or stainless pan.

Now is this pan perfect? Of course not. Some people think you can crack an egg on it and it will slide right off. This is not 100% true. Based on my experience, you still need butter or oil to truly take advantage of the nonstick functions.

Overall, I've been using this cookware now for a few months and find them extremely versatile, easy to use and my preferred pan. If you are going to spend the money on this pan, be sure to splurge on the one with the lid - it's worth it.

I have this one and bought it with the lid.

...but this is my next investment.

Have you tried this pan before or have certain questions?
