I am delighted with this pan and would recommend it to anyone. It is solid without being too heavy. I am especially impressed with how much I've had to adjust downwards the amount of flame needed to heat this up and then to saute or fry. I can also substantially reduce the amount of vegetable spray or other fats required to saute or fry.
I bought this to replace an inexpensive non-stick pan. While I have since also bought a small non-stick fry pan for omlettes, etc., this pan and the 10 inch-er that I also bought, have quickly become our 'go-to' pans for anything other than omlettes.
The last thing that needs to be said is that I am astonished at how easy it is to clean these pans. My esteemed wife is a stickler for our cookware to be spotless and these pans make it easy to comply. I look forward to replacing other old pans with Cuisinart pans, as well.
