Got this pan as a replacement for my old one that was peeling, burning food, and very hard to clean. It works like a dream! Followed all the care instructions and it heats well without burning or smoking, is surprisingly quiet, and I noticed I don’t use as much oil as with my old pan. Cleaning is SO easy; everything can be easy wiped off with a soft soapy sponge, it actually gets me excited to clean it, when most people normally dread doing dishes. The pan and lid handle material is very smooth and sturdy, stays cool, and doesn’t seem like the wood will split. Shipped really quickly and safely. Plus, it’s absolutely gorgeous! If you’re looking for a new pan and reading this: get it, you won’t regret it. One of the best purchases I have made as a new adult.
