I purchased the 8" fry pan a few weeks ago as I wanted to try this new line by Cuisinart on a trial basis. I must admit that I am duly impressed. Heats well and the cooking surface is excellent. I am finding that I reach for it almost exclusively so now I need to get a bigger one too. Just ordered the large pan and it will be shipped soon. This has been an excellent purchase thus far.

I bought this unit because I was beginning to have problems uncorking wine with rubber corks. The Waring works well on any type of cork. Have not encountered a cork that did not come out easily and it just a matter of seconds. As prior reviewers indicated, I keep it charged atop my wine cooler and it is always ready to go. It's one of those really neat gadgets that you not only love for yourself but as a gift for others. I am planning to gift it to a friend.

I have had this pan now for about two weeks and I love using it. I have followed the directions regarding the use of a small amount of oil and avoiding the oil sprays. The pan works as advertised - heats well and evenly. I am pleased with the purchase.
