Was watching this morning..and they put a piece of cheese on the pan and it slide right off after becoming nice and cooked..I'm thinking...hmmmm...

Are you talking about the Yoshi Blue pan? If so, the offer on the web says 19.99 for the pan plus 7.99 s & h...a "free" vented lid comes with it, but you have to pay another 7.99 s & h for that. Let's pray this isn't like the Greenpan.

I was all excited about the green Orgreenic pan until I did a search on it , so guess if you're really interested it might be smart to go find some reviews from people who bought it and see how they liked it first.................... Ann

Here's an interesting article on Teflon and (mostly) non-Teflon nonstick pans--doesn't mention the Yoshi, but does have something about Swiss Diamond...indicates the Rachel Ray line is among the best economy sets.

Many times the shipping and handling is more than the product is worth..

If anyone gets one, we need a review...

Thanks for the link. I'm going to be needing a replacement for my nonstick skillet soon. Probably going to take a look at Rachael Ray's line.

I was impressed by Chef Todd English's green pans on TV. I'm not sure if those are the same ones ya'll are talking about, but they were amazing and decent priced for a set.

Several years back there was a 'green pan' that was reputed to be
the best non-stick skillet etc. etc. Everyone of us who bought it
threw it out after a few months. Most disappointing. I like Italian
Bialetti Non-Stick. Rules are not to use high heat.

Love the Bialetti pans and the set I have is NSF certified so it's a professional quality product.

That's the green pan that Barbo and I are talking about, alas. It worked great at first (true non-stick, good heat distribution for it's weight), but the non stick surface shortly stopped working in a weird and horrible way, so that food stuck to it not as much but more than it sticks to a regular pan. (And it wouldn't deglaze the way a normal "stick" pan does.)

There are a slew of devastating reviews on the HSN site (or were the last I looked)--HSN did not refuse to post them--however they very obviously flooded the review section later with a series of repetitive phony positive reviews, in order to jimmy the overall rating for the product.

Thanks for this. I was sold on them, but not anymore. I always forget about reading the ratings on HSN. I do read the ones on Amazon.

I have some T-fal pans and circulon and an anodized pan. I've had good luck with all of them and the circulon's, I have been using for many, many years with no troubles at all. I have a big stock pot that is just stainless, and it used to be great until something stuck/burned on the bottom of it. Even though I got it all cleaned off and shiny again, things want to stick all the time now and that used to not happen. I guess it needs replacing.

Circulon

Dear husband got me a set of these pans and skillets as
a New Year's gift. So far I have enjoyed them. They really
evenly distribute the heat and even though I preheat the
skillets on medium, I get a good carmelization on everything.
So far so happy and since he got them through CostCo. I
can return them if I every feel or about them.
