Seasoned the pans according to the instructions given by the manufacturer. Made Grilled cheese and the pan was certainly non-stick. Made bacon and eggs, again nothing stuck to this pan. I recommend these pans to anyone. I was used to using cast iron pans, but these surpass them.

Kuhn Rikon 12" Stainless-Steel Rotary Egg Beater
Kuhn Rikon 12" Stainless-Steel Rotary Egg
Beater : The tool Grandma relied upon in the kitchen has
been updated with more efficient gears to turn smoothly
in either direction. The Kuhn Rikon stainless-steel
rotary egg beater produces fluffier scrambled eggs,
perfectly-aerated egg whites and whipped cream in less
time. Lets you mix up a batch of pancake batter, blend
sauces, marinades or dressings without a cord to get in
your way. The large rounded handle provides a
comfortable, steady grip. Heavy-duty beaters withstand
daily use. Stores in a drawer. Dishwasher-safe.
Last time I attempted "Whipped Cream" making with an electric stand mixer, I wound up with "Butter."
Time to return to the hand mixer method which never failed me. Hence my purchase of this sturdy reliable hand beater to replace a long lost one.
