    I have bought this pan for about 5 years based on a review by America’s Test Kitchen. They are now substituting a subpar pan. The earlier pans lasted about a year before the non stick part didn’t work as well. That was as reported by ATK. Last years pan didn’t seem to last as long but I wrote it off. The pan I just received no longer has the metal handle so you can’t put it in the oven. It is MUCH lighter than the pan I am replacing.
    I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PAN. It is a cheap substitute for the former pan and it’s performance

    First of all, I did NOT receive a free one, so this review is not influenced by the desire to keep on getting free stuff.

    Second, I purchased the pan almost five years ago, so this is not like all those reviews of “just received” products.

    Now here’s what most of you want to know. How durable is the nonstick surface? Well first keep in mind that ALL nonstick surfaces degrade over time, whether of the Teflon variety or the ceramic kind.

    DO NOT be fooled by the “limited lifetime warranties” that imply that these retain their nonstick surfaces indefinitely. If you read the fine print, you must return them postpaid to the manufacturer for “evaluation.” The manufacturers do not tell you that, in the case of less expensive pans like this one, it often costs more to return them on warranty than to buy a brand new one! When I tried to complain about this deceptive practice to the company, they promised me a call back from a supervisor within two business days, but it never happened. So customer service is sketchy.

    On the other hand, this pan was reasonably nonstick for over four years, which is far better than most, including all of those beautiful ceramic pans. So you are unlikely to get any better durability than this no matter how much you spend, and this T-fal is relatively inexpensive.

    I would have given 4.5 to 5 stars were it not for the deceptive warranty and poor customer service.

    It does NOT last..6 months max. It is NOT flat, that never goes away… Look, ALL pans of this type start off kinda non stick, it is how well do they perform and how long do they last. I used this between Feb 17th it’s now Oct 30th , so 255 days total, so that means after about roughly 175 uses it is now useless. At this point that butter almost sticks to the pan . Highest oven temp used was 350F, highest stove temp used was perhaps 450F (peanut oil smoke point).Hand washed only, only used nylon or silicone utensils. If you want to add this to your Amazon subscription where you buy a new one every month then maybe that works for you. I will never waste my hard earned money on this pan again, If you choose to…that’s on you. You have been warned…hope this helps.

    Very disappointed. I bought this for my spouse to use on our induction cook-top range. The pan performed well for 10 months, and then she noticed that the surface was flaking near the center heat indicator. We have all plastic cooking utensils, and this pan was babied.

    “No problem!” I told her, this pan has a warranty. However, the warranty phone number leads to automated responses, and no return authorization. The instructions to return are to ship at your own cost, and then hope for the best. If you go to “warranty review” websites for the manufacturer, you’ll read horror stories about many people that paid for shipping and never heard back. Why throw good money after bad? Paying 50% of the cost to ship something in hope that it will ever get a repair (or even a response) is a terrible deal. By design, no doubt.

    This works as it should. It is very non stick and easy to clean. It is still new and I would have to wait to see how long it will withstand normal wear and tear.

    Bastante más pesada que otras sartenes sel mismo tamaño, además que el mango se calienta mucho, al grado que no se puede agarrar de la mitad del mango hacia la sartén porque quema, nunca había tenido una sartén que se calentara tanto el mango. Si cocina algo pesado, es un problema agarrar la sartén solo de la orilla del mango.

    This is an honest review from a professional chef who has used this product in their home kitchen almost every day for an entire year. I was not paid to write this review nor did I receive any compensation for my efforts.

    Initial Observations:

    I bought this pan for home use on January 2, 2015. I never use small frying pans, so the 12.5” was an easy choice. I was initially intrigued that the bottom of the pan was convex and doubted whether the pan would distribute oil/butter evenly for browning/frying. The sides of the pan appeared to be slanted high enough to sautee without the use of a turner/spatula (i.e. using the wrist to move food in the pan). The handle felt comfortable in my hand and the riveting appeared to be sturdy. The overall weight and balance of the pan did not feel awkward.

    Use and Abuse:

    Despite my hesitation about the convex bottom, the pan browns more evenly than any pan I’ve ever used. The pan’s ability to cook eggs is superior to any pan I’ve ever used. When multitasking, I can sautee without using utensils. The pan withstands high heat, does not warp and is easy to clean. I do not allow the pan to cool fully before washing it directly under water. I do not use ANY metal utensils in this pan. Minor scratches have accrued. After 1 year, the surface is slightly less non-stick. Use with metal utensils is NOT recommended under any circumstances. It has yet to be determined whether the coating is being removed during cooking or during non-abrasive washings. I sincerely hope it’s the latter.

    The rivets are not flush with the pan. Food debris collects around the rivets if not cleaned properly. The handle construction has shown no sign of wear. The rivets are fastened securely to the pan. The pan’s ability to heat and cool quickly is excellent.

    T-Fal Claims that:

    1. The unique T-fal Thermo-Spot heat indicator shows when the pan is perfectly preheated for cooking. [TRUE]
    2. Prometal Pro nonstick interior is exceptionally durable and scratch resistant. [FALSE]
    3. Safe for use with metal utensil. [FALSE]
    4. Stainless steel disc for even heat distribution. [TRUE]
    5. Anti-warp protection. [TRUE]
    6. Dishwasher Safe. {TRUE]
    7. Oven safe to 400 degrees F. [TRUE]
    8. Safe for all cooking methods including induction. [TRUE]

    In my professional opinion, using a metal turner/spatula is not recommended. The two most important claims that T-Fal promotes (i.e. that the surface is durable/scratch resistant and is safe to use with metal utensils) are false. Although I enjoy using this pan at the house, I do not consider this product “professional” quality. An alternative coating would eliminate this issue altogether and would not significantly increase production costs:

    In short, I highly recommend this product for home use only. My 4 star review is extremely generous considering the fact that advanced material science and nano-technology are not being used to create a superior consumer product.

    No está nada barato para ser de tamaño pequeño, pero la verdad es divino, el acabado es buenísimo no se pega nada, con solo pasarle una servilleta se le quita todo. Excelente calidad.

    First time using this pan and it has an overall a good nonstick surface but it isn’t entirely flat. This causes things like eggs to instantly spread to the outside of the pan making it so your food is all right against the edge. Very disappointing.

    I’ve been generally happy with T-Fal products and this one continues my reaction. The only concern has been a bit of residue/scuffing on my glass-top range from the bottom of the pan. Otherwise, good for the price.

    I’ve owned many T-fal pans over the years and love how easy they are for clean-up. This pan is no exception, it’s a breeze to clean and is very non-stick. The issue I’m having with this pan is it seems to be a bit “less flat” than other T-fal pans I’ve owned, so the stuff I’m cooking tends to migrate toward the edges of the pan which can be a bit of a pain. Also, I find the middle of the pan is quite a bit hotter than the surrounding area. So, good pan overall, but a couple of annoyances.
