I initially bought Ayesha's 2 piece skillet set. I was so impressed with it, that I bought a few other items such as this grill pan. I used the grill pan to make some sirloin steaks and let me tell you...when I went to wash all that grease and stuff stuck in the pan, I did NOT have to soak it. I used dish detergent and it just glided right off. No scrubbing extra hard. Her cookware is amazing. I have not had any issues this far, so I can't speak on longevity but I am not disappointed so far and would highly recommend her cookware/bakeware.
