This is an excellent cooking pan for an induction stove. I like the huge size as it allows me to spread out food so it all cooks evenly and very quickly. What surprised me the most was the ability to cook at lower temps because of excellent heat distribution. With my other pans I have to cook at a 7 to 9 setting, with this one, I cook at 5 1/2 to 6 and get the same (actually better) results. Plus, I saute a lot of pasta. Pasta does not stick in any way to this pan, and that is with virtually no oil.
The only drawback is cleaning the pan is difficult because it barely fits in my sink. I don't put pans in the dishwasher because, in my experience, I find dishwasher are not kind the these surfaces. I wipe out the pan with hot water using a plastic sponge like a "Tuffie."
The other drawback, tho minor, is getting food out of the pan. With my lighter pans, I just tilt the pan onto a bowl or plate. This pan is too heavy (for me) so I have to scoop...
This is my first non-stick type pan; I normally use a 10" cast iron pan but found it too small for most family cooking tasks. This pan is 5 lbs and I find it manageable for daily usage. The equivalent sized cast iron pan is double the weight of this pan which is much too heavy for frequent use.
The bottom of pan is not perfectly flat when cold (normal) but per the instructions it will flatten out as it heats up. I do hear some creaking in the pan as the pan heats up and cools down. It doesn't bother me and as long as it lasts a couple years I'll be happy. The bottom of pan is stainless steel which is why it's induction ready. Most non-stick pans out there are aluminum construction which is useless for induction users. Amazon was the only place I was able to find a non stick pan this size and also induction ready.
Likes: -Food does not stick, which also helps in cleanup. -The large size is great; I was able to put 8 strips of bacon in this at...
I've been buying these update pans for quite a while at a local restaurant supply store. They've recently gone out of business, so I was left in the lurch when the non-stick started sticking. I usually have to replace the pan about every 2-3 years, and that seems reasonable. I've yet see a "name brand" non-stick last that long even at 2-3X the price, so I stick with these. They work great on induction tops, and heat evenly. The non-stick is pretty durable. The bottom is slightly concave, but flattens out when hot (per the insert in the package). Make sure you let the pan cool gradually to make sure you don't warp the bottom. One note, the description and picture shows a "helper handle" on the pan opposite the regular handle that is not on the pan. I knew this from prior purchases, but thought it bore mentioning.
