The marketing for this pan makes SOME CLAIMS. So far, it does seem to be compatible with metal utensils, as claimed.
I have a tumultuous relationship with Le Creuset. On the one hand, it's one of those legacy brands that mostly trades on a name rather than quality these days. On the other hand, I sure do like their dutch ovens.
This pan follows the Le Creuset pattern: way more expensive than the materials are worth, but... is the pan better IRL than on paper?
Actually, yes. I was pretty stunned by its performance. After a few weeks with it, it seems to be as durable as its marketing says and I love the heft of it.
