I bought this pan because I was fed up with the non stick surface coming off pans within a year or so. I was told that the Scanpan titanium was a built in non stick and part of the construction of the pan and would not come away. It was great for the first 6 months but then went like the rest. It's now unusable. Very expensive and no better than anything else I've had with regard to the non stick durability. (read more)

I have purchased scanpan low sauce pot and I have had issues with it. I am now on my fourth pan in the space of about 4 years!....HOWEVER it cannot go unsaid that all four were replacements sent to me after returning the product that was pealing and blistering on the inside surface. Each pan I have had has done the exact same thing, despite cooking on low heat and cleaning as per instructions etc....all have blistered and pealed. This product DOES have issues HOWEVER Scanpan are VERY VERY... (read more)

I have owned a lot of Scanpans since the late 90's. I bought the first one in Denmark and carried it home on the plane. Recently several developed bubbles or cracks and were no longer non-stick. Scanpan replaced ALL of them with no problem and no cost to me. The new ones even come with lids. I give Scanpan an A+! This is Nordstrom type service, and it's rare to find it today. I love cooking with these pans and I'm thrilled that Scanpan stood behind their product. The best pans ever!! (read more)

This is the worst frying pan i've ever used. i paid $400 for a scanpan commercial pan. the thing lasted 4 months! i complained via email to their service department called meyer. i got your standard automated response telling me that i've either washed my pan in the dishwasher or cooked on medium to high heat. Yeah.....so? apparently these pans can't handle medium heat......Right. so please, for the good of humanity and common sense, go and buy any other pan on the market. (read more)

I bought a set of 10 about 8 years ago. Subsequently I have replaced 5 of them. I send them back and they send me new ones which also have a fully warranty period. Based on this they are very good value and customer service is very good. For cooking they are also good. I clean them as instructed but someties a thin, greasy film remains. I have to do a little bit of extra work.
Overall 4 stars. (read more)

I have had large set of 8 pieces of Scanpan classic cookware for a while ... about ten years. I have not treated them with any special care as they came with a stainless steel scourer and I am sensible enough not to use very high heat or leave them unwashed for any period of time. Nevertheless the ones I use most regularly have pitted terribly. Bases are all still very even and flat so I ignore the aesthetics and continue to use them but I would not recommend them and would never buy... (read more)

In summary - I'd say SCAMpan was a more appropriate name.
I bought a large scanpan frypan about two years ago. It was an experiment - buy the "best" - or most expensive - to see if it was worthwhile. It wasn't. I was suspicious about the warranty from the outset: why would you need to clean off built up food if it was non-stick? Should just rinse off. The surface is very hard and scratch resistant but was only semi-non-stick even at the start. I tried to cook an omelet in it last... (read more)

No hesitation in recommending Scanpan! I am a former professional cook and have used many types of cookware-scanpans are the easiest to work with and clean. I used to wonder why my camping cookware was so much more durable than the kitchen stuff--it was non-stick and scratch resistant, scanpan has answered the call! Transferring from the stovetop to the oven is worth its weight in gold (searing in one pan!) They are expensive yes, they also are dishwasher-safe BUT I don't recommend this... (read more)

We have a bed and breakfast and have used a variety of high-end frying pans, omelette pans and griddles since 1986. Two weeks ago we decided to try ScanPan as the latest pans were starting to stick. So far we are thrilled and have purchased two other replacement pans. We like the sizes, the weight and the ease of maintenance, the prices are good too. So far we do not have any complaints with performance but will be keeping track of longevity. The only thing that ScanPan is missing is a... (read more)

Reluctantly bought another scanpan because I got it cheap and can throw it away when it stops being non stick. Why give a life time guarantee on your product and then tell everyone that its your fault it blistered and rusted. why bother....I like them because at first they are non stick and you can put them in the oven and they are a good size for me. I have had two and had to throw them away even though i babied them but I was accused of miss treating them by the company, why would any one... (read more)

We have had a set of pots & pans with lids for 10 yrs. They will stick if cooking with too high of heat but I love them as they can go in the oven too. I don't put them in the dishwasher & don't let them sit unwashed. The pots have been pitting. So we sent them back for replacement and are still waiting for them to be returned. Were told twice they are on the way but it has been 2 mo.! Customer service needs to be replaced!! Herb & Jean in TN. (read more)

Bought my first Scanpan in '05 (or so). It was the ergonomic style. This pan had what is considered now the old coating technology. I purchased a saute pan (greentek) in '08 and noticed a huge difference between the non-stickability of the pans. The greentek was far superior. I had some blistering on the ergonomic non-greentek pan and returned it in '09 with no questions. What I received WITHIN 2 WEEKS was the new greentek technology. Again, NO comparison! Love the pans!!

Ok for about 6 months then totally useless as everything sticks to it. Sent it back to scanpan and they said it was an issue with built up residue, they said they would properly clean one half to show how the pan would look with proper cleaning. (as if we don't know how to do the dishes) They managed to clean one small spot around the size of a 20 cent coin. Must have done it with a grinder because i can't budge the build up with oven cleaner, jif metal scourer etc. I have bought better... (read more)

Had my first Scanpan for almost a year when the coating began blistering and peeling. It was immediately replaced and the new pan has now lasted five years with no problems at all.
Excellent products, excellent customer service. Seems like some of the people posting on here have no concept of good cookware. Tefal? Really? Cheap and cheerful is all well and good, but I ended up having to buy a new one every six months - is that value for money? (read more)

I love scanpan. i refuse to use any other pot or pan. It is the greatest i have ever used. The non-stick coating is fantastic, and the cleaning up process is a breeze. I have purchased in total 15 pieces, and am very satisfied. I cant wait to home every night and cook dinner, because it is such a joy to use. Anyone wanting good quality cookware should purchase Scanpan. It is amazing. I have used many other brands before and I found these over priced for the low quality pieces they are.... (read more)

My Scanpan Classic skillet is flaking around the curved part of the skillet near the base, as well as a piece in the center of the skillet. Skillet was purchased in 6/2004, so it made it about 4 yrs before the flaking started. I never use more than medium heat for cooking. Have not contacted Chef's about flaking problem. Have heard that flaking will not affect cooking ability or ability to remain stick-free. I'm confused though because their ad says the material is all the way through the... (read more)

Had our scanpan for more than 10 years, Though several were little more than heavy aluminum for the last 7 or so.
Nice flat base, even heat, handles can go in the oven, easy clean up (straight from hot stove to sink).
Just replaced with nice Calphalon stainless. The stainless is at least as non-stick as the scanpan, a bit more prone to scratching, much better/even heating, lighter weight, around the same price. (read more)

I love these Scanpan pans. I wasn't a non-stick believer at first but after more than several years of cooking with them, I now can't live without them. The lifetime warranty is fantastic - I had to return one pan several months ago and they gave me a new one, no questions asked. (read more)

Have had Scanpan cookware for at least 10 years and the saucepans have taken a real beating. Someone left whole peaches boilng on the stove overnight reducing them to a charcoal coating and sticky lumps the next morning. The saucepan was destined to the scrapheap. No matter how much chipping and scrubbing it was stuck solid. We then soaked the inside with washing detergent for a couple of days, boiled it up on the stove. Presto it all peeled off. We scrubbed clean and is good as new except a... (read more)

We initially purchased 1 small pot which we adored and consequently bought 3 other pots and a couple of roasting dishes and the wok and a frypan. The pans we used on a daily basis bubbled within 6 months and started to chip despite using low heat and washing carefully. (Even though we were told you could use metal utensils we always treated them with care) The shop replaced these pots for us and we put it down to being a bad batch. However within a year the pots used on a daily basis were in... (read more)

I wouldn't recommend these scanpan classic pans due to the high cost and poor quality. Pans were supposed to be resistant to scratches and chipping and within a year the two smaller pans I used most often started peeling and flaking apart. I even used special utensils for teflon coatings and placed paper towels between the pans when not in use. I expected pans that cost as much as these did to have a better quality to them. (read more)

I don't understand where many of these negative comments about this Classic Scanpan are coming from - even a low heat is suitable for frying with my pan. Why would anyone want to use the full heat? To purposely burn food? The reason other pans need to have full heat is because they are cheap quality and poor heat conductors. My Scanpan has never let me down in 7 years - very surprised that so many claim to be disappointed. Non-stick still completely effective and no scratches. (read more)

I decided to invest in a good quality make and purchase frying pan, large pan sutiable for the oven, griddle pan etc. From day one griddle pan was difficult to clean. The frying pan was less non-stick than supermarket brands and the surface became discoloured and patchy. The oven pan started to blister.

It was expensive and, whilst I was led to believe it would last a long time, in my experience it quickly ceased to be non-stick. It started to peel and flake within a year.

Now - just over a year old - it is usable.
I would not recommend this pan. (read more)

These pans do not last. I worked for Scanpan about 10 years ago and have had quite a collection of pans. They scratch easily, and you can not use the dishwasher if you want them to remain nonstick. The "baked in coating" eventually flakes off and reveals a metal base. The amount of pans that get returned because they stick, or peel, or bubble, etc. is astounding. There are boxes and boxes of them daily. Many stores stopped selling them years ago. A celebrity did use and and promote... (read more)

When I first brought my ScanPan, I thought it was so wonderful I brought a set including wok, roasting tray and grill. I followed the directions in the instruction manual but after a while the non-stick surface started chipping off exposing the metal base. This wouldn't be so bad if you brought a reasonably cheap Tefel but I paid quite a bit for this stuff. Then after a few uses the top of the grill pan started to chip and the other surfaces are starting to look tired. The frypan is now... (read more)

Fantastic performance, but can only be used on medium high to low heats... a good indicator on a gas stove of your heat is...if the flame is extending beyond your aluminium disc; then the heat is too high :)
Mine were great until they were scorched on the wok burner by my brother and father.
The baking dish is fine still, as it's only used in the oven. I love the 44cm length; good for my 90cm oven :) hehe
I don't know if I'll replace the Scanpan's until those two people have moved out haha (read more)

We loved our Scanpan when we first got it, and we still use it most days for cooking everything from stir-fries, casseroles, pancakes and steak. Whilst it is still functional, the surface is not holding up well; mostly because we cook at a high heat for things like stir fries, which is not recommended. If you cook a lot of simmer style food, then they are brilliant, but if you cook at high heat, be prepared for it to not last a life time. But while it does last, it's pretty good. (read more)

We found the Scanpan classic good for casseroles and similar type dishes, but it was virtually useless as a frypan. I think it is somewhat false advertising to even say it was a frypan as you cannot get it hot enough to fry without damaging it. We, for example used it for pikelets and they were cooked before they were browned, and the same applied for meats.
Overall we are very disappointed that a product that raves about how tough it is, is more suited to being found in a discount store... (read more)

The surface of the Scanpan Classic lasts only 6 months before it starts bubbling and and peeling off.
Had trouble returning as the rep uses arguments that it was overheated.

I bought one piece to test it out. I loved them soooo much that I now own 4 Scanpan pans. What I like is that there is NO metal on the glass lids, making it great for cleaning. Also there is NO metal on the rim of the pans on the top, as most other brands do have. It is truly a joy to cook. When I cook an egg, I can literally use my fingers to turn the egg, as it is that easy to lift.
