Satisfied with the purchase.Writing this review after having used it for a few months. Its a hard anodised pan which is not the same as non stick.The non-stick property is better than aluminum utensils but not comparable to a non stick pan. It should not be used at high flame. It seems durable and is easy to clean.
I am satisfied with the quality of the product and no qualms at all. It definitely is not a replacement of non-stick cookware as I had veguely thought. However, I wanted to do away with the risk of using non-stick cookware and hence moved onto this. Given a choice, I recommend using steel vessel over hard anodised.
You have to cook at the lowest flame as a mandate and ensure that the vessel is oiled enough so that the food doesnt stick. If you cook at high flame the food gets stuck to the vessel and its a daunting task to scrub it off. However, not as daunting as cleaning up a steel vessel.
I would recommend this vessel over usual steel utensils only if you want to save gas. Food cooks slightly faster and more uniformly than steel utensils. Otherwise I don't see a strong reason to purchase this vessel.
Value for money.. Very good product.. Perfect for couple or single.. Finishing too good.. Lid is perfectly fitted. N yes am very satisfied with delivery.. I ordered on 20th n8 and got it on 21st morning 10am.
I've been on the course of changing the entire range of non-stick and Aluminum cookware to hard anodized due to hazardous toxins non-sticks have. Other than a 2.5 ltr Pan, this is my second buy and I've been quite satisfied by all Futura products. Even Prestige doesn't match with the kind of quality future products have. The only downside with this particular model is its completely round bottom making it unstable to put on flat surface. Otherwise fantastic.
