    Oh my goodness, I love this thing. I’ve had it for about three months now, and it has been wonderful. I go out of my way to treat it properly — I always hand wash it and only use bamboo/silicone/plastic utensils, so the interior is pretty much the same as when it was delivered. I really haven’t had any issue with turning the burner up to high (electric range with old-school spiral raised metal elements) to boil water quickly, but maybe that reduces overall lifespan, so I kind of feel guilty about it. On the other hand, my kids are hungry…

    This pan has the slickest teflon-type surface I’ve ever used, comparable to the ceramic-coated nonstick frying pans I got at Target nine months ago. Week-old dried, cooked-on food of any kind slides right off with a little soapy water and a plastic scraper or Dobie sponge (

    ), with almost no effort at all — it’s absolutely amazing. I learned to cook using my mom’s old aluminum pans, and cleaning them afterwards was a nightmare, especially if anything had burned. Later I got into cast iron, but it requires seasoning and very special care, especially cleaning. I still love my cast iron Dutch oven for making pot roast, but the thing practically weighs as much as I do, and isn’t terribly convenient for making a quick round of mac and cheese on a busy weeknight. I’ve used (usually cheap) teflon pots and pans for years, from a number of manufacturers, but they generally weren’t terribly “non-sticky” to begin with, invariably got scratched, and eventually lost their non-stick utility completely. This pan is different. Pre-lubrication just isn’t necessary, unless you want it for taste or whatever. I’ve actually made fried eggs in it (it is a bit deep for flipping) with no butter at all, and simply cleaned up with a few swipes from a paper towel. Cleanup after making (real) gravy takes a minute, tops. Dried on rice pilaf comes right off. Definitely worth it!

    Aside from the possibility of reduced fat cooking and super-easy cleanup, food actually cooks evenly and well. The bottom and sides are much thicker than I expected and it has a surprisingly solid heft, giving stability on a tilted burner but not weighing so much that a 10 year old junior cook can’t safely carry a full pan of cooked pasta from stove to sink. Heat transfers very evenly, as you can see when boiling water — the bubbles just before a full boil are formed evenly across the bottom from edge to center, not just in a narrow ring or in certain spots. The water also seems to boil pretty quickly.

    There is one minor flaw — the handle on the lid. The metal part below the knob is hollow, so if you look up through the bottom of the lid you can see a little enclosed space. While I don’t wash the pan itself in the dishwasher because of the harsh detergent, I do sometimes wash the lid in there, and every time it fills up with water so I have to loosen the attaching screw to empty and dry it out. It would be much better if this metal piece was more slender and solid, eliminating this otherwise useless void.

    Overall, this pan is a solid, well-made, even-heating, super non-stick wonder that cleans very easily and is my go-to workhorse when cooking.

    Not even three months after buying this pan it is essentially unusable. The handle became very loose so I tried to screw it back it nice and tight. That worked for one week and now the handle is again so loose I am afraid it will break off while I am carrying the pan from stove to sink full of something very hot. Trying to tighten the screws is no longer an option. Just doesn’t work. I’d look elsewhere for a new pan.

    For the first few weeks these pots were a great deal. The non-stick coating worked well, they were easy to clean, and did everything I needed them to. Then, I started noticing they scratched very easily. I’ve never used any knives, metal utensils, abrasive cleaners, or pads….only wooden or plastic utensils, sponges, and simple dish soap (if any). In spite of this, I’ve noticed large gashes in each of the pots that I’ve bought, and I have no idea where they came from.

    I contacted T-fal customer service to discuss replacing the pots under warranty because if they were scratching this easily from plastic utensils, then surely something was manufactured improperly. T-fal looked at the pictures I sent them (same ones attached), claimed nothing was wrong on their end, and they wouldn’t qualify for warranty. I’m very disappointed with these pots and the service I received from T-fal. I don’t plan to purchase from them again.

    Two stars since they worked fine when they arrived, but it’s clear from the price and the performance that these are cheaply made pots that aren’t worth buying if you’re looking for long term usage like I was.

    If I could give this junk any less stars, I would. The non-stick layer started peeling off after just one month, when it was used only a couple of time. We hand wash it with the soft side of the sponge and never overheat it. The T-fal warranty doesn’t cover non-stick peeling and no one at the customer service picks up the phone anyway

    In July after I received this I would have given it a 5 stars, by August it had visible scratches on the surface. I use wooden and rubber spoons. Today Sept 24 have not even had this pot 3 months I pulled it from the cupboard and discovered before cooking my rice that a big chunk of the coating was bubbling and started to peel. It is now garbage. My pots used to last years. This totally sucks. I would not waste my money.

    This pot is perfect for sauces, grains, vegetables etc… after reading several of the reviews I was nervous this was not what I was looking for however, after buying it I must say I am thoroughly impressed. I have made sure to treat it properly of course, I oiled it before using it and always wash it by hand, and only use silicone utensils. I have had it for two years now and have not had any issues with the handle coming loose, scratching or markings on the bottom surface, plus having the clear lid makes things much easier to cook, it definitely comes in handy. The lid also has a hole in it for steam to escape. This is a great non-stick pan that is definitely easy to clean. Overall this pan is well-made and ready to be used over and over again.

    This pot is quite nice and definitely lives up to all claims-
    – Durable aluminum construction for long lasting performance
    – Quality non-stick interior for easy cooking and easy clean up
    – Ergonomically designed handles for comfort and safety
    – Vented glass lid to easily monitor food while cooking
    – Oven safe to 350°F

    The reason for 3 stars- Not the pot but the lid! There is a tiny space between the handle knob and the glass- after washing, water gets in and accumulates there. You can get the water out through the same tiny space- by repeatedly shaking the lid at an angle. Not sure if this was a one-off case but I found this issue to be quite annoying- I don’t see the purpose of having that tiny space.
