My initial impressions of the pan were not that great but as soon as I started using the pan, I could tell that this pan was of very high quality. I made some pancakes with it and then came out perfectly. It is completely non-stick and very easy to clean. For the price, this is a great product and I think it will last for a very long time (am expecting a year at least). I will report back with and positive or negative updates as I continue to use the pan.
