I purchased this pan two years ago to make gravy in. My other pans are nonstick and I didn't want to use a metal wire whisk in them because I feared scratching the nonstick coating. This Wearever pan has become my favorite sauce pan for more than just gravy. I've sauteed onions in it with no problem at all using only a little olive oil. So far, I haven't had any trouble with anything sticking to it. It comes out of the dishwasher looking great, and I don't have to have special cleaners for it. The pan has a nice weight to it, and cooks evenly on my glass-topped stove. I do recommend this little pan for doing a great job, and its low maintenance. In fact, I like this pan so well, I am in the market to replace my entire stock of nonstick cookware with other pieces like this Wearever sauce pan.
