Hexclad Saute Pan

I don't usually review cookware, even though I get tons of offers. I like to review things that are new and different, and for the most part, cookware is ... not all that innovative.

When I got an email about a new type of cookware called Hexclad, I decided to give it a try. The surface had a hex-shaped pattern that intrigued me. And then it got here and I found out that the pattern was also a texture. Oooooh. Texture.


It is a little lighter in weight than my other cookware and it seemed thinner, but it's still a tri-ply construction, and the surface is nonstick, inside and out. It's oven-safe and can be washed in the dishwasher, which is a plus.

I cooked eggs, steak, potatoes, mushrooms, and French toast. Not all at once. But I used it every time I needed something cooked.

So far, it's a nice pan. It is nonstick, for the most part, but meat browned well in it. When I was making mushroom gravy, I got a bit of sticking, but it came up as soon as I added liquid, so that was perfectly fine. I got a little bit of sticking when I cooked potatoes, but I think I might have tried moving them before I should have. The bits did scrape up easily, and washing has been easy too.

I haven't put the pan in the dishwasher yet, but I probably will. Needless to say, I have no idea how long this pan will last, but I've had other nonstick pans that failed pretty spectacularly in this many uses.

Who's it for: Pretty much everyone needs cookware.

Pros: Nonstick. Oven safe to 500 degrees. Dishwasher safe. Metal-utensil safe.

Cons: This is a new brand, so I've got no idea what to expect from the quality.

Wishes: So far, there are only saute pans and a wok - no saucepans or other types of cookware. Some folks like to have a complete set.

Source: I received this from the manufacturer for the purpose of a review.
