Pleasantly surprisedWas a bit apprehensive how this would hold up but just used it daily for 10 days over an OPEN FIRE and it performed flawlessly. Quick easy clean up and so far has held up excellently.

great for campground useI've been looking for a fry pan that's small enough to fit in a backpack, but not necessarily for long hikes. This fit that perfectly, but it's a tad heavy for a backpacking trip. For car camping or RV use it's great.
The bottom has a of a serrated surface which allows it to grip the serrated tops on my canister stove, preventing it from sliding as I stir. I use a larger canister stove with a larger cooking surface, similar to the size of one burner from a Coleman stove. I can't say how this will work over a jetboil or other similar sized canister stove.
The handle doesn't show signs of getting hot when used frying over medium heat. With any non-stick cookware you want to limit the heat to prevent separation from the pan.
The handle locks firmly in place and has a slight upward slope.
The non stick coating works fantastic and appears fairly durable if you use plastic or silicone utensils. I recently cooked scrambled eggs with this pan, and simply due to the fact it was eggs, I added a little bit of oil but just enough to swirl around the pan with no puddle of oil.
The eggs literally slid out of the pan.
Clean up required nothing more than a wet paper towel.
The pan itself is fairly thick and hasn't warped in the least, again over controlled heat.
I would have liked to see this include a stuff sack, or part of a complete set, but that's not really a reason to deduct a star for.
