I bought this to replace an older skillet of the same brand that after 21 years was beginning to lose its non stick surface. I know this one will give me the same great service that the old one provided. I own a lot of this brand but this skillet is the one I use almost daily and is my go to friend in the kitchen.

This cookware lasts almost forever (well, mine is going on 50 years) and looks almost as good as it did the day we received it as a wedding present.

This is the perfect sized skillet for everything from omelets to pan sauteing steak. it also heats evenly so there are no hot spots so you get burnt spots on the food. It is a bit expensive, but lasts forever. Totally recommend it for anyone who can afford it.
