I can't say enough great things about this cookware! It's really well made, heats fast, cooks evenly, and is so easy to clean. I love that I can not only cook an omelette perfectly every time, but that I can also brown and caramelize in this pan as well
All in all, it's a great pan for a great price
Definitely the best nonstick I've used to-date
Decided to give Scanpan a try even though I was doubtful. Started with the 8"" pan and it quickly became the 'go to' pan for everything from eggs to grilled cheese. In fact, it just sits on top the range. No sense putting it away. It cleans up fast, doesn't stick, requires very little fat or oil (in fact none works well, too), and isn't bothered by metal spatulas at all. It feels solid, but not too heavy, and has a nice balance.
Here's something else about the pan besides the nonstick quality�it has a nice flat bottom. Even with the curved sides, there's good 'cook space.' Be aware though, for people who are upgrading from standard skillets, this one has a disk on the underside for even heating. What this means is that it takes longer to heat to searing temps. I usually just put a drop of water in it to see if the water beads and bounces to see when it's ready.
At first I hesitated because of the cost, but in the long run, it's definitely more cost effective to get a Scanpan than to keep replacing the cheaper pans that don't last as long or take a beating. I'm replacing all my skillets with Scanpan
Questions & Answers
in addition to the ceramic-titanium coating, the product description states that ...""A specially formulated nonstick compound is then embedded in the surface."" What is THAT compound
Under product description it states the scanpan classic is heat resistant up to 500 degrees is this true with it having a plastic handle?
sizes available are 8", 9.25", 10.25", 11", 12.25"
Web exclusive: 8" and 11" lids only available online
are these pans really made in Denmark?
Cookware in the Scanpan Classic line wasn't made to be induction-compatible, as its base is non-magnetized. However, Sur La Table does carry three exclusive lines of Scanpan non-stick cookware which ARE induction-compatible: Scanpan IQ (the Classic line with a magnetized base; available only online), Scanpan ProIQ (the Classic line with a magnetized base and an ergonomic metal handle), and Scanpan CTQ (a 5-ply clad line [5-ply refers to the five layers of stainless steel, aluminum, and aluminum alloy that make up the base of the pan.] with a magnetized base and an ergonomic metal handle.
My recipes call for nonstick pan and using cooking spray.
I am interested in the 8"" diameter. Thank
