I normally don't write reviews concerning cookware, but after seeing how quickly this pan fails and spending $30+ on it, I felt compelled to warn others. The ONLY thing good about this pan is that it did not warp over the 6 weeks I've used it. The non-stick fails faster than even cheap Teflon pans and is worthless after only 5 weeks of daily use. This was with the utmost care taken to hand clean and not overheat it and not use metal utensils on it. The first few times I used it, I loved it (and thought "finally, an alternative to teflon coating that works"), but after about the 10th or so use, I noticed things began to stick. I thought to myself, "ok, this is the worst it will get", but I was wrong. Everything sticks to it now. I've never seen a pan go bad so quickly (mind you, I've tried the expensive white ceramic non-sticks - and they're only good for 9 months (though it was washed in the dishwasher - my mistake), so I figured Blue Diamond had to be better (I certainly looked nice!), but, alas, it was a complete waste of money.
Too bad as it's a sturdy and well-built pan - transfers heat excellently. Blue Diamond needs to reformulate and test in the real world before going to market!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
