3.0 out of 5 stars Be Careful With The Finish, January 10, 2007
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The grill performs as advertised, but the non-stick finish is not very durable. Ordinary cleaning is causing the finish to come off even when coated with a vegetable spray. Disappointed with the finish only.

True. The "non-stick" doesn't work. But at the high temperature this item produces (great for grilling!) nothing would hold up. I clean up mine with a spatula/scraper then scour. No problem if the surface gets rough. I love this item!

Good point but I'd prefer not to ingest the coating.

To anyone who might be persuaded by the comments 'that the non-stick coating doesn't matter' posted repeatedly by the same person, consider this:

The "Product Features" state:
"High-quality, nonstick surface for mess-free cooking and cleanup"

In the experience of multiple reviewers, the non-stick coating is NOT high quality, because it comes off easily. And like most poor quality non-stick coatings, it does not do this all at once. It comes off a little at a time, during which time it is likely becoming embedded in the food being cooked on this. Like 'MacGuffin' most people would prefer not to ingest the coating.

If someone wanted to spend the time to completely remove every bit of the interior finish from this grill pan to avoid eating flakes of non-stick coating, have at it (or they could just buy an uncoated cast iron grill pan). But don't buy it thinking that the non-stick coating will make for easy clean-ups, which is inherently more difficult for a pan with grooves & ridges than it is for a regular flat pan.

As far as "at the high temperature this item produces (great for grilling!) nothing would hold up" - that is completely incorrect. It is a grill PAN, not a grill. By itself it produces NO heat at all. It is designed to sit on a stove like any other pan, including other pans with truly high-quality non-stick coatings that DO hold up.

Of course, pans with high-quality, durable non-stick coatings cost a lot more that the current price of this pan, which is less than eight bucks. The justifiably poor reviews due to the non-stick coating coming off prematurely are probably why this pan is currently so deeply discounted from its 'retail' price of just under twenty-nine bucks.
