The perfect addition to your kitchen’s cookware, the Starfrit Rock 9.5 in. Fry Pan features a rocklike finish that makes it extremely durable. A thick, forged aluminum base makes this pan hardy, and spreads heat evenly for precise and thorough cooking. This handy, long-lasting pan will quickly become a staple in any cooking endeavor.
So far the pan has done very well. I would have preferred a silicon handle, but....Oh well. I do like the nonstick surface, although the pan is a little smaller than I'm used to, again a 10" pan was not available. I really purchased out because the nonstick pans that are cold in restaurant supply stores begins to flake off after a couple of uses, but, I often try to get a good crust on steaks, which is very hard on the finish. The instructions for this pan warned not to pre-heat the pan while it is empty. Like I said, so far, so good. I have my fingers crossed.
