This is a fantastic little pan. It cooks evenly, is not overly heavy while being a high quality sturdy skillet, and clean up is a dream! I purchased this along with the 12.5 inch Covered Saute Pan, my first ScanPan items. I am thrilled with them, and will be purchasing more to replace my old pots and pans. I chose the IQ line, because I liked the look of them, and figured I might as well try the top of the line. I am glad I did. This line is pricey, but quality costs and I think this is worth the money.
