In my opinion, this should have been a 5 star product. It is so close to perfect - but the few flaws it has are so glaringly obvious that I wonder what was happening with the manufacturer.
The biggest problem was the handle. It was slightly loose so I thought let me just tighten it a bit. But the screw is too long such that its end touches the edge of the pan before the handle is properly tight. In attempting to tighten it some of the ceramic surface got cracked off, but its on the side of the pan so it doesn't matter too much. I took the handle off to see what was happening and that's where I was really shocked - the block of metal that's welded to the edge of the pan for the handle to screw onto is pathetically small considering its function and doesn't look professionally done (in contrast to the rest of the pan which is almost flawless).
Another minor negative is the pan bottom seems to be lower at the edges, so any liquid in the pan tends to settle towards the edge rather than middle of the pan.
Other than that the rest of the pan is really good quality. The nonstick coating cleans really easily, but I get the impression that it doesn't "wet" so easily as conventional black teflon nonstick pans.
Don't get me wrong, it is a nice pan and I will use it for quite some time to come, its just that its so close to perfection but then falls short for reasons that any other frying pan succeeds on. Its like running the Comrades marathon in 3 hours but stopping 10 m from the finish line and saying "I really couldn't be bothered to finish it properly"
