Stainless Steel Ceramica 20cm Frying Pan 5 "A new favourite" Lesley Silver 11 July 2013 I decided to try a ceramic pan because a friend was raving about hers, and picked this for my induction hob. A happy decision! It heats easily and evenly and it retains heat. I've used it seven or eight times, usually with oil or butter, occasionally dry, washed it by hand or in the dishwasher, and it's looked as good as new. It heats easily and evenly and it also retains heat. It doesn't take in water in the dishwasher. I have pans with a thick magnetic base added, where water seeps in. They look dry till you heat them, and the hob floods. I can be confident that this one won't do that.
