We love these pans so much that we bought all three sizes. This latest purchase is for Mom.
We can't say enough good things about these pans. They are truly non-stick, and most importantly, they are dishwasher safe, and clean up beautifully. We particularly like the large ones for frittatas, as they go from stove top to oven and it remains non-stick.
Strongly recommend these pans.

The station we received did not sharpen knives; it dulled them. Even our super high quality knives were dulled. After several tries, all with bad results, we packed it up for return, and went back to manual sharpening.

This towel is larger than the typical dish towel -- much larger. Absorbs nicely, looks great. I highly recommend it.

Truly non-stick

Not my first non-stick liner; just needed a smaller one. This one fit the pan perfectly. I especially like to use them when cooking bacon in the oven -- nothing sticks, and I can drain the bacon fat into a fat storage crock.
The only "con" is cleanup. When cooking something really greasy, the liner has to be very thoroughly scrubbed in the sink -- even though it's dishwasher safe, heavy grease just doesn't come off in the dishwasher. A good non-gritty scrubbing powder and some elbow grease take care of it, though.
Greasy foods notwithstanding, these liners are well worth the investment.

Even cooking, cleans up easily, dishwasher safe -- what's not to like? One must keep in mind that it's stone, and follow the directions for use, but previous bar pans do not begin to compare favorably with this one. Look forward to many years dependable use.
