With its expansive, 12-in. diameter, this large pan is ideal for frying large batches of chicken, searing a whole piece of fish or cooking a hearty beef goulash. This pan features an Excalibur nonstick cooking surface reinforced with stainless steel so food cooks evenly then releases with no stuck-on messes. This classic skillet has sloped sides, a wide, flat bottom and a helper handle that facilitates lifting when moving from the stove. The open design of the skillet maximizes the cooking surface and makes it easy to arrange food as it cooks. The long, dual riveted handle offers perfect balance to provide exceptional control when gently tossing food. Note: Handles are not stay-cool and will get warm over high-heat or when used in the oven. Oven mitts are recommended.
Great looking Product, but Poor Packaging
This review is from: Cuisinart 12-in. Nonstick Chef's Classic Skillet
Pros: The skillet arrived in just 2 days! It looks awesome. I'm glad it has a "helper handle" because of it's weight. I didn't want a light-weight skillet. I wanted one that would sit down solid on my old-fashioned electric burner (not a smooth top stove). The exterior is a brilliant, shiny appearance. I hope it stays looking that nice and is easy to clean. Both handles are solidly attached. The non-stick interior looks and feels good, but time will tell if it works good and doesn't scratch easily. Holding it in my hands, I am very happy with it and will order other sizes if this one cooks and holds up as well as it looks. This product deserves 5 Eggs on initial "look and feel". For $50, I think it is a great value. The base of the skillet is a solid 3/8" thick. There is a lot of metal between the food and the burner. That really impresses me about this product. This "Cuisinart Chef's Classic Non-Stick Stainless Steel Skillet, Model 722-30HNS" is well made. It even comes with a Lifetime Warranty. The skillet can even be registered on the Cuisinart website to facilitate any warranty issues in the future. I have one other Cuisinart Product (a bread maker) and it is also of superior quality. From now on, I will look to this company first for my kitchen needs.
Cons: Unfortunately, this skillet was packed in a huge box that was 12" deep! It had a small amount of brown paper in the box, but that wasn't sufficient to support the skillet or keep the box from being crushed. The box was smashed and the skillet was slightly scratched, but not enough to return it or worry about. I don't blame FedEx because the box was obviously way too big. The box should have been 2"-3" deep. I hope whoever packed this box is given better training. I hope Newegg researches my shipment and talks with the employee so in the future it doesn't happen again.
Other Thoughts: From the description on the website, I thought this skillet did NOT contain any Aluminum. I was trying to find a Non-Aluminum skillet for health-safety reasons. I was surprised when the skillet arrived and the manufacturer's paper insert said "Aluminum encapsulated base heats quickly and evenly". On the back of this insert it shows a picture of an Aluminum Core surrounded by Stainless Steel on both sides. That is ok with me because the Stainless Steel is totally covering the Aluminum. So, don't be afraid to order this product on that basis. And perhaps the Aluminum Core actually makes the heat distribute more evenly, like it said on the paper.
