My mom has been using a 27cm nirlep sakhi for the last 5 years which has reached nearly end of life as the non-stick coating is damaged. So I ordered this online only to observe-
1. The design has slightly changed. The tawa is now more concave. 2. The handle is given separately but the recatangular stainless steel cover on it is bolted loosely (it has some play). This will make the entire handle loose (vertical play) even if the centre screw is tightened. 3. A wooden spatula included is so pathetic that it sheds fibres as it is not even finished properly. Would have been better not to include it. 4. A nylon scrubber has also been included. 5. The package said it was 10 month old stock from Cloudtail. 5. There was no scratches or irregularities in the non-stick coating or the red back side of the tawa.
