It is NON-STICK without the toxic chemicals found in teflon, ceramic, etc. AND we do NOT have to baby it to take care of it- WIN WIN!! In order to get a stainless pan to be non-stick you must use it CORRECTLY though, so don't review this pan whining that everything sticks to it when you didn't educate yourself how to use it PROPERLY.
Heat the pan for 2-4 minutes over medium to high heat (it varies upon YOUR specific stove, burner size & speed, etc.), you can drop a few drops of water into the pan to test that it is heated up PROPERLY.. the water should GLIDE across the pan like an ice skater on ice.. if the water glides, then you are good to go... add a bit of oil, then your food, & it should be non-stick. There are some things that stick no matter what of if I OVERHEAT the pan, but almost everything we have cooked in this pan has NOT stuck to the pan. We LOVE it!!
To clean it up, put it into the dishwasher or handwash it. If there happens to be food stuck to it or your oil gets caked on, add some hot water & a tad of dish soap, and let it soak for 15-30 minutes. It should clean up very easily after that. I have only had to use something a bit more abrasive ONCE so far (as SOS pad) & that is because it was oil that had kind of baked into the bottom in one area. With very little elbow grease, it scrubbed right out & looked brand new again.
We use this pan about 4-5 days per week...sometimes 6-7.. for at least one meal though some days we use it for 2 or 3 meals. It works & works well! I would love to buy another pan down the line so we can cook even faster for our large family.
Oh & this pan is a TRUE 5 1/2 quart pan, unlike our last that claimed to be 5 quarts but only held just over 4 quarts.
GREAT pan!! I do RECOMMEND it!!

1st. Use medium setting to pre-heat pan. Test to see if pan is ready for use. Wet a spoon/whatever and put a 'small drop' of water into the pan. If it has 'boiling water' appearance, pan is ready.
2nd. 'Lightly, lightly' butter/oil pan like if you're cooking eggs. If something like hamburger won't need to. For fried chicken I pour in olive oil to cover bottom surface only of pan and wait for that to heat up. I know pan is ready because I put a tiny piece of food into pan near the 'side'/not center area. Should hear sizzle sound. If not, pan is not hot enough. Let it heat up longer.
3rd. Once the tiny piece of food sizzles, then put food to be cooked into the pan. Once you lay a piece of food into the pan you can't move it at all. It has to stay exactly where it is at. The food has to do a process of browning/caramelizing' on the underside before flipping or moving it. Meat will stick to the pan but will release when this process has completed.

While chicken is frying I put a large bowl of water into the microwave and heat it up. When done using pan, I wipe out the oil and then pour in the heated water. Moving it around with a spatula, I can release 99.9% of anything that has stuck to the bottom or sides of the pan. Then later or next morning, I'll pour out the water and hand wash the pan. I dry it carefully around the rivets and the lip/top area of the pan. It is said to get a shiny new pan look, clean this with 'Bar Keepers Friend'. I just bought that and haven't used it yet but with so many recommendations all should go well.

Do search on "videos how to cook with stainless steel" - there are lots of them for all kinds of food / and cleanup. Here's an article on how to cook with stainless steel. http://www.thecookwareadvisor.com/the-five-secrets-to-cooking-with-stainless-steel/
I would buy this pan again and would recommend it to a friend. Also since this pan ships from and is sold by Amazon their return policy for most items is within 30 days of receipt of shipment.
Pan has a Lifetime Warranty but some people have had a difficult time getting it honored.
This pan is really awesome-- it cooks evenly, cleans up easily with Bar Keepers Friend® Cleanser & Polish: 12 OZ--IF you even need to scrub hard. As others said-- soak it a while, and most of the food releases easily. We have only used Bar Keepers Friend on the pan ONCE in 2 months of 3~5 times per week usage. That one time was some seriously scorched food-- and it was still a minimal effort to get it looking like it just came out of the box. I can not recommend this pan more highly-- Especially for the price!
