This pan heats evenly and quickly. It's actually a great pan. But I have two issues with it.
#1 It's a bit shallower and smaller than I had hoped for or thought it would be based on the picture, so its very easy to slop out of it when stirring and something like 1 box of hamburger helper would fill it close to the brim and you'll have a fantastic mess to clean up when you stir. It's great for omelettes or bacon n' eggs - flat things...
#2 The handles suck: Even though the picture clearly shows the the lack of a typical "wrap-your-hand-around-it long grip handle" you see on many other frying pans, these small loop handles make it very hard to pick up to pour/dish food out of it, I'm a 6'1" 250lb guy and it takes all my wrist strength to hold it up while I spatula food onto a plate with my other hand and I darn near burn my fingers every time I try, no way most women could do it all... so if your smaller than me you wont be picking this one up much and when you do it will always be with two hands, no exceptions unless your wrists are freakishly strong. You will not be able to hold a full piping hot pan by one handle. I honestly didn't realize how hard it would be to pick up, it surprised me as I did see the handles before buying it. Additionally I like to kind of shake the food in my old frying pan by holding the long handle as a way too stir contents without picking up a utensil, you know like you see the chef's do on tv... the food sorta flips up at the far edge and lands back in the pan essentially flipping its self over to cook the other side... I can't do that with this pan at all and I miss that. Plus your hands/fingers and arms/inner wrists are that much closer to the hot pan when you do pick it up even when using 2 hands. Just something to keep in mind.
In terms of quality and ability to cook and clean its fantastic... usability or user friendliness not so much, kind of short sighted there I think.
