I've been cooking with a nice set of Cuisinart Multi-Clad cookware for the past two years. While the stainless steel pots and pans are usually a joy to cook with, they are not perfect. Food can easily stick to them during and after cooking, and clean-up is typically a hassle.
I knew I wanted something more --- something with the good attributes of stainless steel multi-clad cookware, and something that was somehow at the same time non-stick. When I came across the Zwilling Spirit cookware by JA Henckels, I was sure I'd found what I was looking for.
I decided upon starting out with the 3-qt. Saute Pan because it seems to be the most versatile piece of cookware, at least in my household. Perhaps (one of) the most pleasing aspect of the Zilling Spirit cookware is that it is a non-stick cookware that can be used with induction cooking. So, I use this saute pan most often on my Berghoff induction burner.
I really like how, yet this saute pan is non-stick, it can still "brown" your food. You can also get the opportunity to deglaze the pan after cooking certain foods --- something most owners of non-stick cookware don't get the chance to do. The non-stick material in these pots and pans just acts differently, in a GOOD way. You can even use this cookware in the oven! Try doing that with your typical non-stick pan.
The glass lid on this pan fits perfectly. I love being able to see how far my food is coming along without having to lift the lid. The handles on the lid are raised considerably high, so you don't usually need to use a pot holder when touching them. And the handles on the pan are very comfortable. They are thick, and they utilize the "V" shaped connection to the pan, so they won't get the slightest bit warm while cooking on the stove.
Clean-up is, of course, a breeze. Many times I've just cleaned out the pan with a damp paper towel. Though every now and then you may want to give the outside of the pan some TLC and clean it with a little Bar Keeper's Friend. Just be careful to not get any of the BKF solution on the interior of the pan --- so as to protect the non-stick coating. And just in case any of you were wondering, NO METAL UTENSILS.
I highly recommend this line to anyone who is looking for something more than the average cookware. These pots and pans are of superior quality. I assure you, you won't be disappointed!
AFTER 1 YEAR - The pan continues to perform beautifully. I examine it regularly for signs of wear but so far there are no scratches, not even minor surface scratches. This is very impressive. My nonstick saucepan with a DuPont Autograph II surface (labelled "metal utensil safe") has some very minor scratches after 6 months, this pan has none. Both pans have seen only silicone and wood utensils, and hand washing. I restrict heat to medium or lower. Clean up is still easy. I have given it a baking soda "facial" a couple of times to remove oil build-up.
EDITED ORIGINAL REVIEW - My initial impression of this pan was good. It's a well made stainless pan with a very slick nonstick interior. I've owned this pan for 4 months now and food still slides around like a hockey puck on fresh ice. It has become a workhorse for me, and it's so well constructed that I'm happy to use it almost daily. Tonight I made a skillet lasagne in it, everything from browning the meat to cooking the pasta right in this pan. Then I finished it under the broiler. So good, and it cleaned up in about 30 seconds with one squirt of dish soap on a wet sponge.
I wrote before that it was only so-so at developing fond. You know, those wonderful brown bits that we thought we needed a bare stainless steel pan to get? Well, this pan builds fond just fine. The trick is to use much, much less oil than you think you'll need. I fried a pair of big flounder filets (no flour, just spices) the other night in about ½-1 teaspoon of oil. I made sure they were as dry as I could make them first. It worked. I'll try it with chicken soon and update again.
I've been able to compare it to a lot of other pans for thickness of the aluminum layer (which determines how evenly heat spreads throughout a pan) and for overall weight and balance. This pan is equal to All-Clad and is thicker than equivalent fully clad Cuisinart, Emerilware and Calphalon pans. It's about the same thickness as the 5-ply USA Pan skillet. It is an excellent value. The only thing it lacks is a helper handle. That's not a deal breaker in this pan, because the handle is long enough (just) to allow for two-handed lifting. Like with tonight's lasagne. The All-Clad has a longer handle, but I hate them, they dig into my thumb.
Other features I like are the brushed exterior steel, which is easier to clean than polished steel. The lid handle is easy to grasp with bare hands, tongs or a towel. The lid fits tightly and doesn't rattle at all. Speaking of rattling, this pan doesn't buzz on my GE induction range. It might buzz at high heat, but I wouldn't know because I don't take it past medium, there's no need. It heats up very quickly on medium.
Cleaning - A little bit of soap on a sponge does the job. I've never needed to use a scrubby. If it ever loses it's nonstick ability (mine has not) a little baking soda on a wet pan, scrubbed with a paper towel or blue scrubby will restore the nonstick finish. It works. If you've got a nonstick pan of any kind that is sticking, try it!
Caveats - As with all nonstick, Zwilling advises low to medium heat, and NEVER use cooking sprays like Pam. The pan does function better with a little oil in it. Personally, I'd avoid frying anything in extra virgin olive oil because of it's low smoke point. That's just not good for cooking.
I'm completely satisfied with this pan. As good as the ceramic finish is, the pan beneath is just as good, which makes cooking a joy. I highly recommend it.
UPDATE: After about 4 years the non-stick completely stopped working. I have used this pan heavily over its life but expected it to last longer. I took away a star because of this.
