So lovely and versatile.

This pan's depth and width are exactly what I've been looking for in a non-stick pan [I so truly hope this lasts]. So far, I've found this to be excellent for:
1). Making long pasta like spaghetti/linguine/fettuccine/angel hair etc. because the width gives you more room to allow the pasta to boil down into the pot.
2). As a chicken fryer but deeper with much less splattering
3). Stews and soups and sauces. I made a large batch of navy bean soup and a batch of homemade ketchup with this pan and they both came out perfect.
4). Frittatas. I love the fact this is oven safe up to 400ºF which is perfect for making a cheesy frittata.
5). Stir frying. Even though this isn't round like a wok this pot performs great for stir frying and does a great fried rice as well.
6). Sticky buns and cinnamon rolls. Yes, you can bake gooey cinnamon rolls in this pan and all of the buttery, sugary, cinnamon filling stays on the rolls instead of running off like on a regular sheet pan.
This isn't dishwasher safe [not a big deal for me since I always wash every pan I own by hand anyway].
As with all non-stick, the clean-up is a breeze.
The bottom seems very sturdy and so far no warping issues on my gas cook-top.
This is not metal utensil safe as per most non-stick pans so stick with silicone/melamine/nylon/wood utensils.
As someone who has used (and abused) non-stick cookware for years. Here are my tips for helping it last longer:
A. Never use non-stick spray (it's the death knell of non-stick cookware). I learned this the hard way after throwing away a lot of destroyed non-stick pans. The silicone in non-stick spray as an anti-foaming agent is the kryptonite of non-stick cookware and will literally eat away at the non-stick surface.
B. Adhere to the manufacturer's guidelines and only use high heat for a very short time for searing/browning [using high heat for too long will not only damage the non-stick but warp the pan as well].
C. Never rinse your hot pan right away [even with hot water]. Let it cool down on a cool burner or heat proof cook-top before washing.
