We've not had long term good luck with non-stick pans. We always wash by hand, never put on the highest heat, etc. trying to take care of them. NONE so far have lasted a full 2 years. We cook almost all our meals at home using both stainless and non-stick especially at dinner time. We've tried All-Clad, Cuisinart, Farberware, Camphelon, Cuisinox (Canada company) and probably a few others I cannot remember. We do love our All-Clad stainless pans above the rest but alas even their non-stick did not hold up. Have high hopes for this pan - happy with it now after using for a couple weeks. Seems different that other non-sticks, wish I had found this option 2 years ago when I was buying different brands.
