I actually received this skillet as a Christmas gift this year, and I really only have positive things to say about it. I'm typically very cautious when reading reviews of products because I'm picky and fairly demanding when it comes to "quality" products.
My adventures with my newest item (the red 10") was on Christmas day. After reading through the instructions that are packaged with the pan I jumped right in with some turkey bacon. I was slightly concerned that the bacon might stick as turkey is far less greasy that regular bacon, but it cooked up wonderfully! I did add a tiny bit of cooking spray as the instructions frown upon heating up a dry pan, but I'm not convinced that it's necessary. There was no sticking on my first bacon run at all.
Since then, I've cooked chicken breasts, regular bacon, sausage, and even several different types of fish and have yet to find anything that sticks to this pan. I used butter with the chicken breasts and some cooking spray with the fish, but I'm almost to the point where the pan is seasoned enough to forgo those in the future. The heat distribution is better than any other pan I've used (including numerous teflon pieces from Caphalon). The handle does get hot, of course, as it's all made out of cast iron. Just use a pot holder (or buy a sleeve made by La Creuset for this exact product).
The pan still looks brand new and I expect it to for years. It has already become my most used in the kitchen. I have had NO problems keeping it clean. Just some water and a sponge and everything slides off with ease.
If you're on the fence, buy it. You won't regret the decision!
