What we like:
At glance, this Scandinavian brand wins us for their eco-friendly concepts due to totally PFOA- and PFOS-free and 100% recycled materials. Then we knew not only the ideas, but their cookware win decisively for the superior features. For 5-ply clad of recycled aluminum core with 18/10 stainless steel coated by Green Tek, the ceramic-titanium inside, it’s exceptional for cooking results and scratch resistance. In fact, this is a good green gear that is compatible dishwasher, induction burner, oven and broiler with 500 degree F heat resistance.
From our views, this is one of the finest construct and performance for non-Teflon nonstick pans we’ve reviewed. It’s well-made and hefty. The cooking ability makes delightful experiences. It works a bit like cast iron; taking a few times to heat but retaining temperatures pretty longer after cooking. It does better for quickly and evenly temperatures, as well as super smooth surfaces which let browning, sautéing, simmering or searing beautifully with less oils or butter.
The whole design is stylish. The polished stainless-steel handles are solid and ergonomically well-balanced. While the brushed stainless outside finishes feel both stylish and strong, makes great matching with dark finish inside. The lifetime warranty is well worth.

What we don't like:
It seems to appear two main downsides. The obvious matter is it’s noticeably pricey, however, most users agreed to worth their money and carrying lifetime warrantee. Another issue, it’s quite heavy which may be difficult for some mild arthritis or little ladies. More, some users experienced discoloration on stainless exteriors, which can be cured by common stainless steel care or Barkeeper’s Friends; some of them claimed that it took more work to keep shiny.
|In short, if the nonstick cookware you can accept is only the superbly heirloom quality which safe for harmful Teflon chemicals with no budget constraint, the Scanpan CTX is an interesting candidate. The lifetime warrantee and induction suitability are further satisfactory conditions.
