Note that this is for the GS Pro pans, not the standard GS pans! The packaging says they are different products. Well, the title kind of says it all. I've had virtually every type of non-stick pan made by mankind. Why? Because most of them ended up in exactly the right place; the trash! However...I found the GS Pro pans at Costco a couple or three months ago. It was the "Pro" in the title that tweaked my curiosity. Marketing, yeah it works on me sometimes. Well, the pans specifically said that they would work on induction cooking systems, a first for non-stick pans that I've found. I took them home and couldn't wait to give them a try.
My wife and I like stuffed hash browns in the morning. The difference is that I like cheese on mine and she doesn't. I put a substantial amount of cheddar cheese on half the hash browns and, wait for it, flipped the hash browns in the pan, waited about 30 seconds and flipped it again. Wow! It was like a TV show! They came out absolutely beautifully! My side had cheese toasted into the potatoes and the wife's didn't. And hey, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING STUCK! I cussed my other pans every time I used them. They stuck like an IRS assessment!
So here I am a couple or three months later and still NOTHING STICKS! These pans are a joy to use. Ok, maybe it's me. I always hand wash my pans with a sponge pad, not a scratchy pad, and a small amount of dishwashing liquid. It doesn't matter if you burned the crap out of supper, they WIPE clean, just like the TV ads! Although they are "dishwasher safe" I choose to wash them in the sink; it takes all of about 15 seconds in the sink. I make sure that I DO NOT USE METAL UTENSILS! EVER. In fact, the instruction sheet that came with the pans specifically says no metal utensils. I use them on a moderate heat, lower than about 80% on my induction cooktop. When not in use, I keep a fabric separator between them so they won't get scratched by the other useless cookware in the cupboard. They work as well today as they did 3 months ago and I use them every day.
Well, that's about all I can say. Would I recommend them? Absolutely! I would just add that you should be willing to play by the rules: no metal utensils and don't get rough with them either temperature-wise or rough handling. Cook on! It's hash brown time!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
