I bought this skillet because my Mom has one just like it that she loves. I'd already given one as a gift to my best friend. She loves hers too!
I don't have the problems with uneven heating that other reviewers have mentioned. I recently browned pork loin cutlets in the skillet and they were evenly done, no matter what area of the pan they were in. I've also used the skillet to braise cabbage and make a pan sauce, both of which were successful.
The skillet and lid are easy to clean up. Overall it seems durable and well made. I haven't had mine that long, but my Mom has had hers for years and it has lasted well with good care. I expect to keep/use the skillet for a long time.

I bought this as an extra "burner" for cooking big holiday meals, but find myself using it more often when just cooking for two. This unit is sized for smaller families, up to 4 people. We use it for frying in oil when a consistent temperature is necessary. It does a great job of heating up quickly, evenly, and keeping the temperature consistent. I have also made scrambled eggs, buffalo wings, and used it for heating up meatballs in sauce. It's very versatile, and much easier to clean than the one my Mom had. This is a lightweight unit, so it might not be the best choice for heavy duty, daily use, or cooking for lots of people. However, if you are looking for something that will do the job when called upon and doesn't take up tons of storage space, or weigh a ton, this is a great choice.
