This review is from: Scanpan Classic Covered Saute Pan 2.5 QT (Kitchen)
I've used Scanpan at home for years and love it. The handles are cool, comfortable and sturdy. It retains heat well and has a super flat bottom that doesn't warp. It doesn't scratch with its very tough fired-on ceramic-titanium surface--no Teflon to scratch through or flake off. And unlike most non-stick pans you can use metal utensils (marks from metal utensils are not scratches of the surface, but rather more like marks upon the surface similar to what metal pots leave in a porcelain sink...easily removed with a bit of Barkeeper's friend). Its non-stick surface is great for cooking. Read the directions on how to get the most out of cooking on the Scanpan surface. I use either water, broth, or a tiny bit of oil, but never spray-ons. I even successfully cook eggs with no oil. Clean up is a dream. It never warps from going from heat to cold water. In fact, Scanpan instructs you to do it just that way, and it works beautifully. The cold water on the hot pan lifts all the food off the surface, so that a quick swipe with a brush or sponge and a tad of detergent leaves Scanpan clean. It has all the attributes perfect for efficient galley cooking....sturdy, cool comfortable handles, non-stick, easy to clean with little water, ability to go from hot stove to cold sink without worrying about warping. This particular pan is perfect for 1-2 people. With it's high sides, the saute pans are better for boat galleys than the quite low sided fry pans. Food and liquids have less chance of slopping over the edges when the boat lurches. Because of my satisfaction with Scanpan at home, my son, who loves to cook, has outfitted his boat with Scanpan and is very pleased with their performance too.
