Caveat emptor! Everything was as claimed for the first couple of cooks, but the nonstick properties have since broken down. I purchased the pan last fall, and used it several times per week. The pan, by no means was misused, but even the outside of the pan chipped quite easily.
I like the idea of bringing the nonstick technology into 21st century, but this is not it. So much for Green Pans claim for helping the environment. I just sent my fry pan to the landfill.
