Anolon Advanced - No way!

Sauté pan bought one year ago. Already the non stick surface has broken down and you can't even lift off an egg after cooking. I would never buy this brand again. Show details

Dont waste your money

Our frying pan has come apart on the base and now leaks fluid. We placed a warranty claim with Analon who responded to us saying that the pan had been heated up too hot! and they would not honour the lifetime warranty that came with the product. Seriously? This is a pan made for frying, it needs to be hot. Up until now that pan has been fine and I'm very disappointed that this has happened. I've had cheaper pans that have not come apart. I tend to buy quality products for my cooking but wont be buying Analon again. Show details

Short life!

Started out great! Didn't take long for all the finish to start flaking off! Really not usable after a couple years. Poor quality! No warranty Show details

Quality products

I don't usually write reviews but when I saw all these bad reviews I was dumbfounded. I absolutely love my anolon endurance fry pans. I purchased these over a year ago and use daily and they are still in perfect condition. My mother owns old Analon pans and pots that are still in perfect condition after 60 years! If you look after your anolon cookware it will last. That is: don't use metal utensils with non-stick pans, let your pan cool and hand wash. The brand stands by this and I believe offers a lifetime warranty. Show details

The best!

Unfortunately I reviewed this pan a while ago after using it on my cooktop. It heated up slowly, and I gave it an awful review. Just bought induction portable cooking plate and it is a totally different story. The most amazing non-stick pan I have ever used. I almost threw it out initially, I think the problem was my original cooktop and not the pan. Nothing ever sticks. Show details

Sharp edge on bottom of fry pan

The bottom of the fry pan has a very sharp edge that scratched my ceramic cooktop when it was moved. I ended up having to use very fine wet n dry sandpaper to round off the sharp edge to make the fry pan usable. Apart from that, it appears to be performing ok. A little more attention to their final manufacturing required. Show details

Pan warped in shape after first use. Anolon refused to replace

We bought the 6 piece set. After the first use the pan warped (the middle of the pan lifted) and since then has deteriorated quickly. We have had the pans 9 months. Food sticks to the pan straight away.
Anolon claims this isn't covered under warranty as I have used the pans on too high of a heat however none of the other pans have done this and we cook on all of them in the same way. I'll never buy from them again. Better off not spending a fortune and going to kmart. At least you know what to expect there. Show details

Can't say I've ever had a pan start leaking before

As others have stated the non-stick coating didn't last all that long and despite being dishwasher safe putting it through the dishwasher was a terrible mistake. But the thing that killed this pan was that it stopped being able to hold liquids.

Naturally I put in a warranty claim but was told that I'd abused the poor pan by daring to using it normally. The customer service answer seemed very stock standard as well.

I'd cleaned it wrong, used it over high heat, and there was build up on the inside of the pan. Fair enough on it being a bit of a mess but eggs that have set onto a 'non stick surface' didn't cause the pan's bottom and sides to delaminate.

But they were nice enough to offer me 25% off a replacement pan.... Show details

More than pans

To me there's more to cookware than the actual pan. There's a company behind it. I have a wide variety of cookware and have tried everything that's out there and I always come back to Analon. Not only are they great products and add so much to my cooking, but the company stands behind what they produce. It's so nice to know that when I'm cooking for family, guests or paying customers there's a whole company standing there with me. Show details

Impossible to contact customer service

Analon products are deliver on non-stick cooking. But, it is impossible to track orders or contact customer service. Buying Analon is not worth the hassle. Show details

After a few uses it completely sticks it’s terrible

I was so excited to buy the ceramic coated non stick bake wear (muffin pan, loaf pan and slice pan). I used it a couple of times and was amazed at how the things just slid out, so I bought more as gifts. After 3-4 uses this completely changed. I was cooking the same things and they would completely stick. It was a nightmare, so I reached out to anolon and they said to grease the pans with olive oil, so I did but it made no difference!!
I’m so disappointed, I reached out regarding the lifetime warranty and it’s just really hard to get anywhere.
I strongly recommend not buying these products. Waste of money and time scooping stuck food out of pans. Show details

The only thing worse than their products is their customer service

Purchased on the promise of their lifetime warranty. Received a lid that did not fit on its corresponding saucepan. Lodged a claim online for a replacement or repair under their warranty. Denied outright with their customer care rep suggesting it was "possibly damaged" with no evidence to support this claim and despite the fact that we had never even used the saucepan since purchase. Do not buy from Anolon when they are so quick to shirk their responsibility to make good on a clearly defective product.

Great cookware

I got a set of Analon Nouvelle Copper back in 2012 as a gift. Sure, 10 years later the non-stick surface isn't what it used to be, but that is partly my fault for overheating the pots. The smaller pots are still OK as far as the non-stick goes. The charcoal-coloured anodising still looks great on all of them.

The dummies who think you can put anodised aluminium (or any aluminium) in a dishwasher need to be hit on the head with a pan! Don't do it! I have also never used metal implements with these pots. Seriously, it isn't that hard not to, is it?

The heat dispersion is excellent and would be due to the copper core of the base. No doubt, one of the best I have ever used. Show details

Can I use my analon roasting dish to cook on my gas cooktop.

Lynn

I cannot answer that as I don't have a roasting dish nor a gas cooktop anymore but my thoughts are that it may buckle just like the frypans because the product seems to be made of inferior materials that allow this buckling.
