I needed to replace my 1 qt Teflon coated pan. It was quite old, and was scratched. We use it a lot. I like the idea of the double pour spouts on this pan, and the perforated lid. I did not realize that the bottom was not smooth like my other one, but there is a warning to not drag the pan across a glass topped range. I know it is for better heat conduction, so that is actually a plus. The pan seems to heat quicker. I got this pan in the purple color; nice looking. so far I like it a lot.
