This is BY FAR the best non stick skillet I have purchased in my 40 plus year of cooking. I have owned this skillet for over 1 year now. I have tried many calphalon designs, green pan (awful), among many more. This one stands above and beyond the rest. My pots and pans get a lot of use and abuse. I cook frequently and this pan gets used at least once a day. The rubber handle stays cool, the skillet can handle a high degree of heat along with cold water immersion immediately after. It have never warped, the surface is as perfect as the day I purchased it. Am looking to buy another while they are on sale. Absolutely worth every penny though - even at full price.
