Scanpan® Pro IQ Nonstick 9-Piece Set
This 9-piece set includes: 8" and 10¼" skillets, 2.75-qt. sauté pan with lid, 2.6-qt. sauce pan with lid, 6.5-qt. Dutch oven with lid, and the 10¼" steamer insert.
PATENTED NONSTICK CONSTRUCTION
Unlike most nonstick cookware, which relies on a coating, Green Tek™ nonstick cooking surface is created by firing a ceramic-titanium compound into the pan at 36,000°F and twice the speed of sound. The ceramic-titanium particles briefly liquefy and permanently anchor themselves to the pan. A specially formulated nonstick compound is then embedded in the surface, ensuring a lifetime of use without peeling or interacting with food.
SUPERIOR DESIGN FOR EXPERT RESULTS
The industry-leading, squeeze-cast cookware features a 100% recycled aluminum body and a thick base that guarantees quick and even heat distribution and no hot spots. Pan is guaranteed not to blister or peel.
The stainless-rimmed, tempered-glass lid with steam vents makes it easy to view food while it cooks. The lid is tight fitting, so it retains moisture while you cook and keeps food hot until you’re ready to serve. Elegant and ergonomic polished handles are riveted to the pan, so they won’t come loose. Pans and lids are both oven safe to 500°F. Lifetime warranty. Dishwasher safe. Made in Denmark.

I have only had my cookware since just before Christmas 2012, so I can't speak to durability, but I fully expect that this is the last set of cookware I will have to buy. The lifetime guarantee offered by Sur la Table alleviates any concerns in that regard.
My only tiny ding has to do with price - which is no bargain. This cookware is expensive, especially when compared to the cookware sets now offered by celebrity chefs that are PFOA/PFTE free for a fraction of the cost of Scanpan Pro. On the other hand, I still run across user reviews with complaints about flaking and scratching for those same sets. And Scanpan was taking steps to address health concerns with nonstick long before it became fashionable. So, if it is at all affordable, I think it is worth it to spend the money to get Scanpan Pro. You really do get what you pay for.
One other thing - in spite of how durable this cookware appears to be, I still treat my Scanpan cookware very gently. I keep stovetop heat to medium most of the time. I don't use metal utensils. Although the pans are supposed to be dishwasher-safe, there is no way my pans are coming within miles of any dishwasher. It takes all of two minutes to wash them out by hand, so that's what I do.
This cookware is wonderful. I highly recommend it
Thankfully, Sur la table has awesome customer service. We were offered a refund or exchange. We opted for an exchange and upgraded to the CTQ.
One thing about the Pro IQ. It was mentioned in another review about the largest induction burner on some GE cooktops. Because the IQ has a plate on the bottom that doesn't cover the entire bottom surface. It will not work on the largest induction burner. The Pro CTQ has the entire bottom of each cookware induction. We are able to now use the largest induction burner with the same size pan.
Questions & Answers
The stainless-rimmed, tempered-glass lid with steam vents makes it easy to view food while it cooks. The lid is tight fitting, so it retains moisture while you cook and keeps food hot until you’re ready to serve. Elegant and ergonomic polished handles are riveted to the pan, so they won’t come loose. Pans and lids are both oven safe to 500°F and most Broilers on a standard oven when set on high do not exceed 500 so you can use these under the broiler as long as you have verified the max temperature with your manufacturer.
How many sizes of sauce pans are in this line of cookware? It looks like a 3 qt. comes with the set but what other sizes are available?
1. Does this cookware work well on gas stoves?
2. Do the available lids fit the skillets?
3. Will the steamer insert also fit the 2.6 qt. sauce pan?
The lids from the sauce pans won't fit the skillets, but we do sell Classic lids separately.
The steamer is too large for the saucepan.
Using a nonstick spray such as PAM is ok.
Which line of the Scanpan nonstick cookware is best for induction? It appears that the Classic is not recommended. What about the other lines?
