5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing better than Scanpan! 17 Jan 2011
By Smitch - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is our Third Scanpan, and we love them. Quite simply the best non-stick cookware we have found.

Let me give a quick background - After we collected All-Clad for several years, it was evident that the non-stick All-Clad was not up to the task. It began to get old and clean-up became tiresome and difficult as the All-Clad non-stick coating wore down and honestly stopped working. We also own some of the All-Clad stainless that is "supposed" to be non-stick based on heating it first, but I find that to be untrue. For pots and other cookware we still like it.

Scanpan has become our favorite cookware over the last 3 years, and the first one purchased is as clean and effective as this brand-new one. No visible wear or tear at all, and a breeze to clean up. We started with the small 8 inch, then the 10 inch, and now the 12 inch to round out our collection and replace our last All-Clad non-stick. It is all very durable and fast to heat up, giving perfect even heating across the pan. All of our pans are the CTX line, which we found to be a bit more heavy duty and well built than the cheaper line- thicker with a better handle. I can't speak to how the cheaper line may work. My only small complaint is only during clean-up - the small steel buttons where the handle is attached is a bit harder to clean, and by saying this you know we are spoiled because the rest of the pan is clean with a wipe of a paper towel or cloth, then you have to scrub the buttons for a few seconds to remove food from them. No biggie. If only they were made from the same material!

I can't say enough about these - they are all we use now. Highly recommended and well worth the extra money!

3.0 out of 5 stars Now it sticks. 11 Jan 2012
By David Burdon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I combined raw onions and a sweet Italian sausage in this skillet on low heat. After the onions were cooked I removed them and turned up the heat to medium high to brown the sausage. When that was done I tried to clean it. The onion remnants refused to be cleaned off. Something about them had bonded tightly to the surface. I contacted Scanpan and they advised adding a teaspoon of baking soda to two cups of water, bring to boil, let stand for 30 mins and then scrub. I had to repeat this EIGHT times before the surface was clean. Now the surface is nothing like as slippery as it was originally, and even fish sticks to it. It remains easy to clean, but it's still a disappointment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for about a year of daily use 7 Nov 2012
By Radley - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
UPDATE 3/13: Yeah, these are bad. I babied my second Scanpan and it still failed in less than a year. If you're only cooking once a week this will last 5 years. But if you cook daily, it'll be useless within a year.

FWIW I was cooking breakfast w/ various kinds of sausages every morning and had identical problems that other users mention (stickiness / bonding).

In regards to the warranty, there's a dozen use cases that negate it and most of them resemble the wear I experienced. To me, it's not worth a debate over whether the warranty is valid or not. I need a new pan and I now know for sure a replacement won't last for me.


I'm on my second Scanpan CTX and it's following a well trod pattern.

The non-stick is great for ~4 months of once a day use and then it slowly start sticking. After about a year you can see the coating fading and flaking in well-used areas.

For my second pan I followed all of the rules: no metal, hand-wash, and (new rule) no high heat. I rarely use metal (a fork for bacon) but this time not even once. I also stopped doing high heat to quickly heat up the pan - I settled for a longer, medium heat.

Nevertheless my second pan's coating is failing in the same pattern as the first. Best guess: I think I may have been preheating the pan for too long. I've been using a mesh screen instead of the lid, so it's not holding heat very well.

I'm not sure if it's me or the product, so I'm still game. I like the size of the pan and when it doesn't stick it's awesome.

I'm going to order pan #3 soon. New tactic: I bought a lid.

More soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect 20 July 2011
By HomoSapiensWannaBe - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have been using the 8" and 10.25" pans for almost a year with an induction cooktop. I am considering the 12-3/4" one, too. They do occasionally go on sale here at Amazon for less than the usual prices. I wish they made a shallow 2-1/2 quart, 8" diameter saute pan with lid.

Other reviewers have mentioned what makes them so great, and I agree. I think there is something about the ceramic/titanium material embedded just below the surface that makes it cook so much like stainless steel, but without sticking, of course. I rarely use SS skillets for browning anymore, unless I want to make a sauce from the "fond" that builds up in the pan.

The one thing that would make them PERFECT would be a flared pouring rim. This may be difficult to implement due to the materials used. I don't know, but it would be great to have. I find that when I pour from these pans, I have to be ready with a slightly wet and soapy dishcloth to quickly wipe the side/bottom, as liquid WILL run down the sides and then the bottom. If I don't wipe immediately, and the pan is really hot, the liquid will begin to harden/set.

This effect would be even more so with a gas or hot radiating electric cooktop if the pan is returned to the burner without wiping, and cooking continues. Then you will then have to later exert some unnecessary "elbow grease" to clean.

Bar Keeper's Friend works great, btw.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware: Teflon-coated 24 Jan 2012
By DrOnRolls - Published on Amazon.com
When one reads that this cookware is PFOA-free and how the nonstick coating is applied, words like eco-friendly, titanium, ceramic, high temp make one think SAFE! and one would immediately assume that it has no Teflon. I did. Wrong! The cookware does not have PFOA but it has PTFE (=Teflon). Go to the Scanpan website. You'll see that their non-stick coating is called Greblon. Greblon is a brand name and is the same as Teflon, Silverstone, Fluron, Supra, Excalibur, Xylon, Duracote, Resistal, and so on. They are all PTFE (=Teflon). I am kicking myself hard for trusting the sales people (Sur la Table store in town) when they told me: "Yes, you can heat up tortillas safely on this skillet. It has no Teflon". Fortunately my parrot is alive and well.
