This pan is definitely on the pricier side but don't let that put you off! The quality of the materials and manufacture are clear. It's the only frying pan that I have ever bought that is completely flat, and has remained so after use. It is made for crepes/pancakes so it is pancake-sized and very shallow, and therefore not really suitable as a multi-purpose pan. I bought if for my husband as he likes making sunday-morning pancakes and he loves it!
