I bought two Blue Diamond pans, an 8" and 10" just in the last few days. I have used a 12" Green Pan, which I have found out is a product of the same company, for about a year now with no problems. These were bought to replace a 10" stainless pan which was difficult to clean and a cheap 8" Teflon pan which I did not like.
I bought Blue Diamond because the Blue Diamond pans can be used in the oven at a higher temperature than the Green Pan.
I am confident the Green Pan will last at least several more years, but then I cook just for myself and do not subject these to extremely heavy use.
I am getting the idea that the Blue Diamond surface is an experimental product idea that might or might not work out well in actual use.
If they don't, it's not a huge loss, I paid about $40 for the two of them. When you consider, even a fast food meal can cost $15 nowadays depending on what you order, it won't be much of a loss if I have to replace these pans in maybe two years. I'll just write it off as a product concept the industry tried that didn't work out very well.
Length of Use: Less than 3 months
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
