I am an avid Indian cooking enthusiast. I make Indian crepes regularly and use this griddle pretty often. Over the past six years I have tried both non-stick(expensive ones such as analon and calphalon) and cast iron griddles to make these crepes, but have found issues with both types of griddles. The non-stick wears out pretty fast(because for Indian crepes and bread,you need to use high heat which wears out the griddle when used regularly) and cast-iron requires too much oil. Additionally I am unhappy with the texture of pancakes(both indian and western) in the non-stick pans.
This Circulon griddle gives me the best of both types of griddles and requires no (or very little) oil and I am able to make paper-thin crepes in them with much ease. This to me is quite amazing;I think the even heating provided by the non-stick smooth base helps prolong the life of this pan(I need to use considerably lesser amount of oil and heat to make these crepes compared to other griddles).
In addition I was initially skeptical of the grooves on the griddle in my opinion the grooves make this non-stick griddle work better than any I have used. I highly recommend this product.

I love this griddle, even the thinnest crepes don't stick and cleaning is a breeze!I make a lot of pancakes,French toast, crepes and Indian crepes(dosa), and they all turn out wonderful! The heating is uniform on all kinds of heating surfaces because of the smooth base.
I only wish I had bought it sooner!

I've been using this griddle for almost three months now and am very happy with it. My only regret is using nonstick spray on it once- there is some residue left on the edge which won't come off. Now I just brush it with oil using a silicone brush and make pancakes, crepes, dosas and poodas (Indian savory pancakes and crepes).

After making the first crepe with oil, I can usually make all the rest without any oil whatsoever, as long as I clean the pan with a wet paper towel before spreading the batter. The pan feels heavy in a nice way and looks beautiful hanging from the utensil rack. It is easy to clean using a damp sponge and a little soap. Things to remember to keep your griddle looking good and lasting long would be:

1. Do NOT use nonstick spray on your griddle.
2. Do not leave your griddle on the heat too long without any food on it.
3. Do not use too hot water or corrosive utensils/scrubs on it.

Great buy! I'm glad I read the instruction which said DO NOT use non-stick spray on this pan or other non-stick surface pans as it puts an invisible film on the non-stick surface causing it to no longer work like it's designed to. This pan lives up to it's expectations. Although there are grooves like in the surface my pancakes, eggs etc. didn't stick. It's a nice weight pan and certainly a bargain for the price.

Not only can you not use spray oils such as PAM on this surface - which is pretty normal for nonstick surfaces, I was expecting that - the product information that comes with the pan says you can only use olive oil or peanut oil. They specifically preclude all vegetable oils, saying they will gum up the surface. I know this happens with the spray oils on nonstick surfaces because of the propellants, aerosolizers, and stabilizers used. But I have never before come across a nonstick pan in which you could not use regular vegetable oil.

I suspect this is related to the ridges in the bottom of the pan; however it is an annoyance and something folks should be aware of BEFORE they buy.

EDIT: 9/24/2011

Made Dosa today and they came out very well. The nonstick property of the brand new pan is indeed non-stick - perhaps a little too non-stick as the dosa have a tendency to pull away from the pan rather quickly - this does tend to make it a little more difficult to get them browned properly.

Currently it seems to work best for dosa to rub the surface with the cut part of half an onion between dosa and dribble a small amount of peanut oil around the edges - no oil directly applied to the surface. And that's a SMALL amount of oil (remember, no vegetable oils!). I keep a squirt bottle of the type commonly used for catsup or mustard for each of my oils near the stove, I use that to squirt a small amount of oil around the edges. You only need that small amount for flavor.

I am upgrading the recommendation to 4 stars - I won't give 5 stars until I see how the pan holds up over time.

This is my 6th pan that i have bought in the last 2 years. The 6th pan not because it was not durable or anything wrong with it but i have gifted 5 other pans. But this was the first time i bought one to use it for myself. This is the best pan ever. My wife uses it to make Indian Dosas (crepes) and they come out crunchy and tasty. Very easy to clean and the quality, taste of the food is incomparable. I also have the 14 piece cookware from circulon and they are equally good. I would surely recommend this to anyone who needs tasty dosa/crepe

One of my neighbors had this pan and I really liked it. I was glad to find it on Amazon for $20.

Great for pancakes,crepes and eggs! Really heavy bottom and its a big griddle. Would recommend it!
