I purchased this saute pan to replace one that was getting old. This one is great. The food browns well. There is no sticking at all and it heats evenly. I wanted one that had a lid. I would recomend this to anyone who is looking for a saute pan to cook a whole meal in and have it turn out just right. The high sides make it perfect.
