Aside from the Stone Earth Pan being perfect for sauteing, frying, boiling and braising, it heats up very quickly and cooks your food evenly. Allowing you to get that nice golden brown color. I love that it has this amazing silicone handle that stays cool and keeps you from burning your hand. I also love how deep it is. Perfect for when you're cooking something with a sauce or you don't want the juices from your food to overflow from the pan. Yet another great pan from Ozeri, it's non-stick, eco-friendly, cooks your food evenly and on top of it all, it's extremely easy to clean. I don't think you could find a better pan than this for the same price. It's very affordable and the quality is amazing, much like the rest of Ozeri's Products.
