This is the best pan out there. My wife finds a way to kill every pan I've ever bought. After a year and a half it's still like new. She uses metal utensils on it and cooks everything on high and it's held up through everything she's thrown at it. I will never buy anything else EVER AGAIN!!
This is my second Scanpan and I love it. Best non-stick ever! It doesn't scratch (at least not easily) and nothing sticks to it. I even tried frying an egg with no fat in the pan and it worked just fine (tastes better with a little butter).
I have used Berndes pans for years and have had several problems with the surface peeling even using only safe utensils. It was wonderful cooking with the Scan Pan. I love it and plan to purchase more.
I bought the Scanpan 8 inch skillet and my husband and I both love it. It heats faster and cleans up nicely. Although the website says it's dishwasher safe, when I read the care instructions that came with the skillet, it said to hand wash it. Although this skillet is not the cheapest, the quailty will last for years and years to come
After the spouse inadvertently put our beloved TFal omelet pan in the dishwasher it was time for a new 8". I didn't want teflon again given the composition and the fact that you can't heat it higher than medium unless you want leaching in your food. We don't buy products from China given a history during the past decade of dishonest practices and "fillers" such as formaldehyde in products. The Scanpan from Denmark seemed like a good fit after a great deal of research online. We ordered the IQ in 8" and it was beautiful. Tried making eggs in it and was surprised by how long it took to heat up and the temperature difference without the surrounding metal we were used to with our Tfal. On our gas stove we were heating it to 3 out of a max 7 to cook eggs on low. It took forever to make an omelet. Didn't like that. Tried making wild shrimp and it was the best I'd ever tasted. The Scanpan put an incredible crust on it that you don't get with regular nonstick. Yet the weekend came again and the eggs were a huge frustration again. We headed to Sur La Table to take a look at the CTQ. First impression: the IQ looks more elegant because of it's angles. Nevertheless we returned our IQ without issue and brought home the CTQ. Shockingly, this pan heats up VERY fast because of the aluminum. Compared to the IQ, having our gas on 3/7 left this pan absolutely smoking with or without oil in it. I can't imagine actually cooking with a higher flame with the CTQ because of how hot it gets. Eggs were done in a jiffy and were incredible. Nevertheless I noticed egg was getting caught in the rivets of the CTQ where the handle attaches because they're not flat against the side of the pan; they're angled. This was not the case with the IQ. Every time we use the CTQ some food or sauce gets caught in the rivets. This is a bit annoying. Also, the inside of the CTQ feels very different than the IQ. It gets grey swipe marks from the silicone spatula or wood spoon- on LOW. I can't get them off. This is also annoying. But most frustrating is the fact hat over 2 weeks the bottom of this pan has gone from aluminum to gold color. Between the inside and outside it looks like we've had this pan for years and years, and don't take care of it. All in all, the CTQ is faster and much, much hotter at a lower temperature. It looks disastrous after minimal use. The IQ is lighter in weight, more elegant looking but much slower to cook and with a less even heat distribution. Can't tell you which I like better as there are clear pro's and drawbacks to each. If there were other pans we could purchase instead that used the same technology and weren't manufactured in China we'd be returning these.
I have had this skillet just a short time. I love how well it browns even though it is nonstick. Even though it is metal utensil "safe", I exercise caution to avoid metal utensils. Unfortunately I have noticed some scratches in the surface. Not sure if it affects the performance, however.
This is the best skillet I've purchased. It cooks evenly, it has a nice weight, the handle doesn't get hot, the coating looks like it will last years and you can wash it in a minute by hand. I wouldn't risk it in the dishwasher
It's not a cheap pan by any means. It has some good weight to it and feels like it will last a long time. We use this small 8"" pan to make over medium eggs. A little butter in the pan for the first batch and it doesn't need any additional butter or oil. Definitely a great pan and hope it lasts for a long time
I treated myself to this pan after becoming frustrated with non-stick pans that promised durability but then scratched easily. I love this pan. It has a nice weight and a solid feel and performs beautifully. This is my lifetime non-stick
I love the scanpan products. I have had so many disappointments buying pans, until scanpans. they are not coated with that eventually flakey non stick bad stuff for you. they are slick and food glides off with a quick rinse. cooking is clean, works great on medium high and clean up is a breeze. I wish i had thrown out all the junk i had bought through the years and bought the whole set of scanpans. I bought two skillets and a pot with a lid. love them, and i don't use metal on them just out of respect for a good pan. I now have my eye on the larger roasting pot with lid. Nita
fell in love it and decided to upgrade all of our pans to this model. It's been over a year now, and they are still going strong! Only drawback is the holes at the end of the handles don't cooperate with hooks very well.
This is absolutely the best nonstick pan available. Bought my first one because of the $99 special offer. Went back 2weeks later for the 12". Heat distribution is awesome even on my electric stovetop. Foods brown nicely, creates a fond for deglazing, cleanup is a breeze.
If you have been looking for a good non stick pan your search has ended.
Finally! A non-stick coating that doesn't degrade.
These pans have a *great* non-stick coating. When compared to All-Clad, these pans will retain heat a bit longer (because of the aluminum construction, I imagine) so you need to be a bit more careful, especially if you have a gas cooktop. However, they clean up like a *dream*. I have to admit being a bit timid to try out the claims that metal utensils can be used, but that's probably just me. Working fantastic so far.
I use this pan daily and although it is a "non-stick" surface it is not damaged by using metal utensils and it's fabulous for eggs. It produces a good sear and is suitable for use in the oven up to 500 degrees. It's a work horse.
My daughter first bought one of these and I loved it ,so I bought one for myself. I have had it now for about a year and love it. I use it every day and it still looks as good as new. Definitely the best pan I've ever had and if I ever have to buy another it will be a Scanpan
This is a terrific non-stick pan. It is as advertised: easy to cook, clean and hard to damage. Cooking is even and the handles stay cool. Budget permitting, I'd like to get a few more pieces from this line - I like the company's policies and their products.
Unquestionably, the best non-stick pan I have ever owned. I only wish the remaining sizes were as affordable as the 11" is. I've owned countless high-end pans, of those that are/were non-stick, this is #1.
I have searched far and wide for a great frying pan. I avoided purchasing this pan for a long time due to the price. After purchasing a variety of different pans, I finally purchased the Scanpan CTQ. I don't know why i waited!! This is a great pan. It doesn't warp when it heats up which is my main complaint with other brands. The nonstick surface seems to be of equally good quality. Love this pan and will be purchasing more!
I have an 8" version of this and its the best non-stick pan I've ever used, period. It's really non-stick, durable, easy to care for. All others I've tried, even All Clad, don't stay non-stick for long. This one has been great for years.
I have one of the original skillets and just love, love them! I used these during the process of losing 40lbs! I continue to use these pans daily for their ease, no oil, clean ability and most importantly for the quality of food I get in th cooking process! I will take my older pans to our winter home and keep this one for cooking here at home. I think they are the best as I also own All Clad!
What is the difference between the scanpan IQ and the CTQ?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
Scanpan® CTQ Nonstick Skillets
Scanpan® IQ Nonstick Skillets
Best Answer:OOPS! I mixed them up. The IQ has the plastic like handle and the CTQ has the metal one. That one is also riveted to the pan and the plastic like one is attached some other way. I can't emphasize enough that they function the same, non stick, cooking well, clean up well.
I have an 8" CTQ and an 11" IQ. They both cook the same and clean up very well. The CTQ has a black handle of some plastic like material and the IQ has a metal handle which gives the added advantage of being able to run it under the broiler about 6" from the heat element. Otherwise, they are the same as far as I can tell.
Is the CTQ skillet the most efficient for induction only cooking in the Scanpan line? How is it constructed, i.e., solid surface or ring
A shopper on Feb 16, 2014
Best Answer:Scanpan IQ, Pro IQ & CTQ are all highly effiecent for induction cooking. If I had to say which one was most efficient, I'd say CTQ, as the entire exterior is induction compatible, whereas Pro IQ & IQ only have an induction compatible base
Best Answer:This is the best non-stick cookware you will ever buy! The surface is very tough, and you don't need special utensils. I wouldn't cut in it with a sharp knife, but I wouldn't do that in ANY good pan, non-stick or not. Use yourvregular utensils.
Best Answer:I don't believe it will be harmed but the instructions indicate the pan is dishwasher safe but not recommended. I only hand wash my CTQ nonstick pans because they were so expensive. Plus, they wash so easily and effortlessly in the sink after they have cooled with a little soap and very warm water and a sponge. These are terrific pans worth a little extra care. Additionally, previous nonstick pans I've used didn't clean or hold up well in the dishwasher.
I never washed it in the dishwasher since the instructions clearly say no. However, I am a bit dissapointed since it scrached easily even though it says that it will not. So now I only use wooden utensils when I cook. Other than that it's a great pan.
I always hand wash non-stick surfaces - dishwashers can get hot enough to damage good pans/knives/wooden handles so mine tends to get used only for every day glasses and dishes. All else is hand washed in my house.
Can I use a small amount of Crisco shortening in these pans for frying chicken, without damaging the pan?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2015
Best Answer:I regularly use olive oil, vegetable oil, safflower oil and it all works extremely well. The pan is so easy to clean and you can put it in the oven as well. Scrambled eggs are a breeze to clean up. Just wipe out with a paper towel.
This skillet looks to be great, and I'm considering for a gift. Question: how do you MEASURE the size? I.e., is the 11 1/2 inch skillet that size at the bottom, i.e. cooking surface, of the pan or at the top where it flares? Same question for the 12" x 4". Cannot imagine a 4" deep skillet. Please advise.
A shopper on Mar 14, 2015
Best Answer:These are measured by top diameter & overall height. So the 8x3 has a diameter at the top of 8" & is 3" tall from top to bottom of skillet. These are exterior dimensions.
