I love the look and feel of these skillets, and I own one of every size that they make, but am warning you, they do not heat evenly! I’ve tried numerous times over different heat settings, but have gone back to my old faithful stainless skillets for anything that requires more sensitivity. The key seems to be the thickness of the metal base, and the stainless skillets are much thicker and better at dispersing heat apparently, for about 1/10th the price of a Smithey skillet.

Smithey Skillet – $160 + shipping for a single skillet and it heats very unevenly.

Fiesta Stainless Skillet – wow, 1 star review on amazon, less than $220 for the entire set, and my go-to for anything that I want to heat evenly.
