Bought this before my daughter was born. She's home from college on break now, and the pan is still going strong. Probably use it 3-4 times a week--it lives on my stovetop. The non-stick surface is long gone, but the pan still works. Lid is still going strong as well. Use it for a variety of fried/sauteed foods, as well as liquid-based foods like spaghetti sauce. I expect its usefulness to outlive mine. Just a nice solid tool.
