Never sticks, not too heavy, the handle has never loosened and the non-stick has not come off. Am a keen cook so it gets a lot of use. Only sticks when hasn't been cleaned properly. I clean it with a stainless steel scourer,where necessary,which hasn't damaged the coating.I fry tofu and poach eggs in it,toast seeds and nuts,saute potatoes (wish it was bigger for that job, you can never have too many saute potatoes!)It can go under the grill for frittata/tortilla.Best frying pan I've had- had at least 4 in 30 years.Would give 5 stars if I could say its lasted 20 yrs, 3yr so far and counting.
