TFal Compliment - Poor performance - 10" square griddle

Review by retired_bill on 2010-11-02
After purchasing this product I was extreamly disapointed. The center of the griddle buckeled up creating a mound forcing any food ie.. eggs pancake batter, to automaticly run to the edge of the pan and not cook evenly.

I think you meant this as a Complaint. T-Fal is not known for being a good brand of non stick cookware.
It's better in the long run to spend a little more for quality that will last longer. I have a set of Anolon hard anodized cookware that have used for a couple of years now and all are still in new condition.

Never put any brand of non stick cookware in the dishwasher, and if your pans flake or start to buckle, throw them out.

There's nothing like an old, well seasoned iron skillet. Mine was handed down, it is over 65 years old.

I agree, I love my Cast Iron.

I agree Ript, but I'm trying to break my Dad from the habit of seasoning my Calphalon skillets! Old habits are hard to break, I guess.

DB, is that as bad as the teen who was going to help his mother by taking a couple of boxes of SOS pads to her heirloom cast iron skillet? It was a beautiful brushed stainless look, but it had lost it's non-stick qualities.

LOL...yeah, something like that Starlord!

I have T-Fal that I bought from QVC almost twenty years ago when it wasn't so widely available in stores. The pieces I own and use constantly are indestructible. I don't have a lot of strength in my hands so I like that it is also lightweight. I've noticed, however, that the quality of T-Fal sold in stores now is not the same as mine. It would never last twenty years.

My wife was previously a T-Fal fan, but she has commented about the quality of T-Fal not being what it used to be. Sad, for what they charge for it, it should be platinum layered with 24K gold.

I think the quality went down when they started to mass produce. The nonstick coating on mine is the best I've ever seen. If it does get gouged, it doesn't flake or spread. The coating on one of my pans is completely destroyed due to my own carelessness, but it still wipes clean! The lids are stainless with a vent on top. I don't think they even make those anymore. The lids are glass now, which I don't like at all. They're probably cheaper to make than stainless.
