I needed a non-stick skillet. I usually use regular skillets for a number of reasons, mostly because I think I cook better with them. I can't ever seem to get anything to come out the way I like it in a non-stick. Anyway, my husband wanted one for cooking his morning eggs and I really needed one for some particular recipes that non-stick spray just wasn't working for. S
The main thing I was looking for in a non-stick skillet was that I could put it in the dishwasher. I hate doing disher. The cookware I have that cannot be washed in the dishwasher will sit there for days before my husband or me finally washes it. I put everything in the dishwasher.
Let me tell you there are some seriously pricey non-stick, dishwasher safe skillets out there. I was not about to pay $100+ for one skillet. I like to cook, but come on. We settled on this one, and we are very pleased.
It heats evenly, it cooks nicely and it washes well. That's what we were looking for and that's what we got. We haven't had it long enough to tell for sure how long it will last, but so far so good.
