I used the skillet for a cauliflower stir fry. The pan cooked evenly and the food tasted better than the stir fry from my stainless steel skillet. The lid is slightly loose, but it did steam the vegetables perfectly and faster.
I love it, it is so easy to use and I like knowing I am not getting toxins in the food I cook, and it is deeper than I thought and can use to cook vegetables in as well, I use it almost every night!
My wife and I love the skillet and will be purchasing more Xtrema Cookware
This is a follow-up to my previous comment just upon receiving this skillet. Though everything about this skillet's appearance, finish and construction is very good, the very reason I bought it for -- for my food not to burn or stick to the skillet -- sadly isn't there. Food gets burnt and sticks to the bottom EASILY and quite quickly EVEN if I use a low heat/flame and plenty of good quality oil or butter Once it happens, to clean it takes an arm and a leg. Following instructions to use Brillo pads, made issues even worse: the shiny surface got scratched and had gray streaks from the pad. To clean it I used an old advice given to me by a Cust. Service for my Koehler's white enamel kitchen sink: in order to remove metal scratches and marks in my sink, to use a wine cork for rubbing problem areas with either Comet or Ajax.kitchen scratch-free cleaners. I did it and only then did all the Brillo pads' scratches from the shiny surface of the skillet disappear. Next, contrary to what they say, that the skillet takes a long time to heat, it heats up VERY quickly and any oil/butter you add to it even on a small-medium flame starts to burn within 1-2 minutes max.. You have a false sense of security that though the skillet is big and heavy, it behaves like its cast iron counterpart. Absolutely not! Even though the food might not get all the poison leaking from Teflon, Nickel or other metals used in other brands skillets, food that gets burnt in my 100% ceramic is of little consolation. So, be aware of this fact when you weigh ecological goodness vs. possibility of having your dinner burnt. I thought that with a purchase of this unique skillet my search for a non-stick frying pan/skillet would be over, but sadly that was not my experience with this greatly coined, but still lacking kitchen utensil. So, it's with some reservations that I can recommend this skillet to prospective buyers.
Wonderful product? So why the 3 stars? The bottom of the pan at the center is elevated into a small dome and the oil runs down to the inside outer edges of the pan making cooking foods more difficult for not to get scorched, unless you are constantly stirring it. So frying chickens, steaks or anything that sits in one spot makes for an unpleasant outcome. PLEASE MAKE THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN FLAT!!!!
It's nice but even after following instructions, my eggs stick. Another thing is it is heavy and good luck if you're trying to pour the contents of the pan into a bowl or plate. You can't hold it. You have to be extremely careful with this product. It can crack so easy and because it's heavy and awkward, you can crack it easy in your sink washing it. Otherwise, it's a nice piece of cookware. It is pretty easy to clean and nothing seems to scratch it. Yes, I would recommend it, however with reservations. Also, forget trying to get a collection of all matching items. Colored items only come in certain products.
I was impressed with the prompt delivery.
