Pan cooked ok, but when I went to clean it, it seemed as soon as it got wet, it got rust spots and strange marks that I've never seen before on any pan. It only sat in the water a short time. The rivets that hold the handle on were well filed and the pan is well made. I looked all over in the papers before I used it and there were no instructions on seasoning, etc. So, maybe I was supposed to treat it somehow first. I did put oil on it and wiped it off so that it might take care of the rust spots.

Although this turner looks flimsy, it is anything but. My husband used it for the first time making omelets and he was very impressed with it. I used it for making grilled cheese and it held the sandwich very steady and was extremely sturdy. I bought the smaller one also and was just as impressed with that one. Thin enough to get under everything but very sturdy as well to hold up to heavy items. Very easy on my non-stick pan.

This is a great pan, I couldn't wait to get it. Had waited a long time to get an All Clad. Wish I would have done it sooner. Heats evenly, don't have to use the high heat like other pans, washes up great and the handle really does stay cool. Can't say enough good things about this pan. Big enough to do a lot of different cooking jobs.
