I have to say the pan since 1 1/2 years of service and must, I would have expected much more. In the meantime, you can see how in some cases replacing the non-stick coating. As I read, this is not an isolated case. In a pan of this price range, I would not have expected! I have never washed the pan in the dishwasher, but always washed with hot water in the sink. Had I known that before, I would have then bought a pan for half the money. From me, therefore no recommendation to buy!
