Product Type Name:
T-Fal Elegance Stainless Steel 8-Inch Saute Pan
Aluminum Core encapsulated in base for even heat distribution
Pros - solid construction, even heating, ease of use/cleaning
Cons - none in my opinion
I love the T-Fal Elegance series of pots and pans. They are made of a very solid construction and maintain a very even heating. I find them easy to use, and easy to clean afterwards.
I use this saute pan on a daily basis, and have never found a reason to dislike it. In fact, I own several of these pans. It has a classy look, heats evenly, and with a few minutes of soaking and/or a brillo pad, I've never had a problem cleaning it. This pan has held up to heavy use for three years, and still looks almost like it did the day I bought it.
I am NOT a fan of pans with teflon (or similar) coatings. This pan has never given me a problem with things sticking on me, as long as I season the pan properly before use (which takes a few seconds usually).
