I bought the green skillet--you have to season them periodically, following the directions carefully, or you lose the non stick finish. I have been very careful to follow all of the recommendations for care. When I initially got the pan, I thought it was fabulous..I have had it a year, and even though I feel like I got my monies worth out of it, it is pretty much slated for the garbage can, soon...I'd really think about investing in that whole set. You might want to take a look at the porcelain covered cast iron that is made by Sandra Lee. Very nice, easy to clean and good, even cooking.
