Reviewing cookware is a bit challenging. If you screw up something it provides an excuse for your error by stating, it must have been the pan, not me! So far I haven't screwed up anything in this pan. Only had it a couple of days and so far nothing is sticking to it. Hand washing it is required but that isn't a hassle as I hand wash all my decent cookware and all my good knives. This is a nice size and it has a wok like shape which I like as it doesn't give you that seam area which can be a problem to clean in some traditional type skillets. It states do not use cooking spray. So far that hasn't been a problem. This is a nice addition to my kitchen tools.
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
