It’s a one-pot wonder.
Versa Skillets move safely from stovetop to oven—to bake, broil, sear, sauté and serve.
These are great. I have been researching how to make my kitchenware and dinnerware chemical free for over a year, got the tea pot off ebay a while back and was convinced to purchase more. Now I can say that 95% of my house is chemical free and I hope my kid does not break them lol.
This is a great small skillet to use to make sauces and cook small food items such as fish fillets. I also use it to lightly toast whole spices. I'm glad I bought this Braiser. I'm using it more than I would've thought!
Love it so far, just bummed that I can’t put a “meal for 2” frozen dinner in it because Xtrema says not to, so I’m having to use an old pan for that. That’s my only complaint...
Love my new pan, have used it several times, and am very happy with my purchase.
I purchased the 12 inch skillet several years. The pan itself was fine but it was too large for me and somewhat cumbersome/heavy to clean and store. Have been looking to replace it with the 10 inch for a while and decided to purchase it during the Black Friday sale. So glad I did! Love it! It is a better size for my glass stove top and I like that it doesn't have a long handle. I also have the smaller 7in skillet and use it every day. Thanks for making nontoxic cookware!
I have the 10-inch braiser and the omelet pan. I warm them over medium (or medium-high) heat with butter/oil, and have learned that food will not turn, easily, until it's ready to turn, until it has started to brown, for instance, then it turns easily.
I now only use Xtrema cookware, because I have to always support my non chemical life.
First off, let me start by saying that it’s important to understand how big a 12” pan is...because I didn’t and was very surprised when it came. I don’t plan for this pan to ever really leave my stove. I make every meal for my family at home, mostly organic and always real, wholesome food. Why would I want that to go to waste after it’s cooked in a toxic pan? Xtrema is the best non-toxic option out there. Every other pan I have researched leaches some sort of something (even expense cast iron, look it up!) but ceramic does not. The only 2 negatives to this pan is that it has the potential to break and that scrambled eggs are a pain in the butt to cook, but I knew both of those things before purchasing. I also replaced my smaller pots with this and have used it to boil pasta and veggies. If you’re looking for something BIG, versatile, and, most importantly, non toxic, I highly recommend this pan!
Enjoying cooking vegetables in it!
This is my first experience with Xtrema. Many of the reviews are accurate so hopefully this will help. Arrived quick, the 12" Versa Skillet is beautiful and I was actually surprised that it was not that heavy as compared to my Nonstick pot I am tossing out. There is great care that will need to be taken with this pot. I don't know if I will let anyone handle it for fear of breakage or chipping. The 12" is large so over hangs the cooktop, so cooking bacon in it, I noticed the ends of the bacon were not cooking but once I added my vegetables and started to stir them the uneven cooking didn't matter or was not noticed. Cleaned up well and no sticking. Definitely a learning curve, but I'm up for it and love my first one. More to come! I'm giving it a 4 star because of the care required and the uneven cooking.
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.

We offer a wide variety of skillet sizes as well as a divided dish to choose from.
Ceramic’s infrared heating properties mean that our skillets and braising pans distribute heat slowly and evenly, allowing the foods you prepare to cook from inside and outside simultaneously. As a result of ceramic cooking, you can maximize the natural flavors while increasing the nutritional value of the meals you prepare overall. Versa skillets give you the ability to slow-cook, roast, sear, stir-fry, braise, and do more than you might have thought possible. All ceramic skillets and braising pans are completely safe for use on the stovetop, in the microwave, and on the grill, because they can withstand temperatures up to 2,700°F. We are confident in the quality of our signature cookware, and we proudly provide a 10-year warranty against breakage resulting from thermal shock.
