It says you do not need to season the pan but fish filets stuck to the bottom. I wasn't expecting it to be super non-stick but I guess I should have used more oil than I thought to. Other than that it's much more heavy than I thought so I usually wash it and put it back on the stove after washing and with the lid on it looks nice. I'm not lugging it from the drawer underneath to the top every time I need it! I'm happy it's a washable cast iron because I feel the other kind is kind of disgusting. Shipping was directly from Tramontina and was packaged well.

My boyfriend bought me this pan as an early mothers day/birthday present. I had been telling him I wanted a cast iron skillet for some time now. Our kitchen is newly painted red and when we saw this pan we thought it would be a perfect match.
As expected the pan is cast iron and weighs EASILY 7-10lbs. Not bothered by the weight, its everything you want in a cast iron, just added beauty on the outside. It says you do not have to "season" the pan, but I did. It instructs you to wash the pan before usage and without a proper first season your pan WILL begin to rust IMMEDIATELY!!
Pan seems to be a TRUE full cast iron skillet, just dipped into enamel to protect the outside. Comes with a matching full cast iron cover which is also just dipped in enamel.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Glo4u123 Was a little disappointed with the coating.
I have another tramontina cast iron braiser that has white enamel,It is easy to clean, however this enamel is black and is very hard to clean, the food sticks to the pan not like the braiser and you see dark stain marks even after soaking and cleaning, I have only used the recommended cleaning items to clean this pan and am to afraid to use anything abrasive so this pan is not as clean friendly as the white enameled braiser.

My son has been wanting a cast iron frying pan, so I bought this for him. He's not getting it till Christmas though. The quality is great!!
