Bought to replace a T-Fal frying pan which we had used for years and which started flaking. Decided to try this pan since the company reviews were so good everywhere. For the first few weeks, it was fantastic. Nothing would stick to it. Cleanup was just soap and hot water and a sponge. Never used anything but wooden or plastic utensils on it. Well, about five or six months later, this pan is toast. It's stained, and everything sticks to it. Really really disappointed. Back to T-Fal I guess.
This was my favorite pan for six months. I hand washed it, followed all of the directions for it terms of only using it on medium heat or lower, I only ever used silicone instruments/spatulas/spoons/etc. It was amazing. I almost bought one for everyone in my family at Christmas I loved it so much. However, I am glad I didn't! After 6 months of owning it, it started to chip. I thought, well, maybe I accidentally went a little too hard on it with the plastic spatula, no big deal. Then, a couple weeks later, food started getting stuck in the center. Now, it's progressed where the entire center of the pan is stained and food gets stuck all the time. Which defeats the purpose. I am so disappointed. I was ready to switch out all of my pans for GreenPan but not any longer. Total let down and wast of $30.
After a couple of uses and even the most gentle hand washing it started to lose the non-stickiness. And even using only silicone and wood spoons the surface deteriorate almost immediately. The best part about it is that Target took it back.
Now I need a good non-stick, non-teflon pan that will actually last!
I would not recommend this skillet. I tried twice, because I thought I got it too hot with the first one. The first couple of times that you use it, it is wonderful. After less than a month on the second one, & being so careful on temperature and utensils, it has scratches and is chipping. Everything sticks to it.
We have used the 10 inch and 12 inch versions of this pan, after 40 days of careful use (no high heat, only rubber and wood utensils, and stored with pot and pan protectors and hand washed with dawn soap) both pans ceramic coating has started to chip. It is assumed that these small chips end up in ones food.
I tried the GreenPan Rio Ceramic Nonstick Frypan 12" for an honest review. I have tried nonstick pans that have lost their nonstick over time, but so far, this has been something quick and easy to clean in the dishwasher. I have used it for everything from making your basic grilled cheese to frying potatoes and pork chops. All while not having to worry about the handle being too hot due to the stay cool handle. I am glad this is a part of my kitchen, and I love the color! Thank you Try It Sampling for a wonderful free sample once again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
So happy I got this pan. Heats up very quickly so be careful to watch the pan at all times. The Nonstick coating makes it that you don't have to use oil and or butter for cooking so makes things much easier. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
