Great item. To all potential buyers, remember the material of this item is cast iron so you'll need to use it differently to other cookware in order to get the most out of it. A few points:
- Condition it before using; drizzle some sunflower oil into the pan, wipe around with kitchen towel, place upside down in an oven on a baking sheet (to catch drips) and leave for 2 hours on 200C heat
- Always cook on lower heat settings and always pre-heat the pan for a few minutes before use (cast iron is dense and takes time to warm up) - this is particularly important for eggs/omelettes, which this pan is made for.
- Don't put your cast iron in the dishwasher! Instead, wipe down with a dishcloth and some warm water once the pan has cooled down after use (don't throw into a sink of cold water immediately after using as the temperature difference will warp the pan).
I've been using this pan for a few weeks now and couldn't be happier. Use it right, look after it, and you'll never have to buy another one in your life.
