I bought the 30 cm frypan as I wanted a good quality pan and it's been great. I'm not sure why the other reviewer is complaining. All handles that are fixed by screws come loose eventually. Just tighten the screw again. It takes less than 5 seconds.
After 6 months use the non stick coating is still fine - yes it's slightly chipped around the rim but that comes with stacking it with other pans and banging it in edges of narrowcupboards when getting it out. I'm happy - it's good quality.

Don’t buy for induction
I bought this 30cm Esteele per salute skillet as I have many other Esteele pots and pans that are 5 star. This one won’t get hot quickly or hot at all on the Miele induction cooktop like their copper base compatriots. Too light. Seems to be hotter around the outside where the oil runs to. It’s as though the base is warped. Any way I gave feedback to Esteele on their website and no reply after a couple of months. Maybe a covid issue as previously i have had excellent service. Main message buy the Australis and not the per vita if you have induction.
Purchased in April 2020 for $114.00.

Great non-stick coating, flimsy handles, poor customer service.
I purchased the 32cm per salute non stick fry pan because I wanted to use less/no oil in my cooking. The pan itself does what it's meant to. It's non-stick feature and heat sensor is faultless and super easy to clean however the non stick coating on the rim of the pan is slightly starting to come off. On top of that both handles became quite wobbly shortly after I bought it. (I purchased from Myer in March 2020). I am very careful when I hand wash it and haven't dropped it. It pretty much sits on my stove top as I use it at least twice a day. A...fter contacting Essteele's customer service regarding the fault/warranty I have had no response after a month. I understand we were in the thick of a pandemic however a month is a joke! Only when I commented on an advertisement on Facebook about my complaint I caught their attention and they did say they had a high volume of queries. It's now June and I still haven't heard anything back. If I were having problems placing an order surely I would have gotten a reply much sooner, of course they wouldn't want to delay any purchases coming through. They also sent me an email declining to publish my review on their website so here I am. It was a fair review based on my experience but clearly they want to maintain a clean image and don't want any negative but constructive reviews on their website. I'm disappointed and really frustrated with this company's product and customer service. I bought one pan to try them out and would have bought a set if they were to my liking. Such a shame as I really enjoyed cooking with it, the non stick coating is fantastic and it cooks very evenly. However given my experience I'm looking at another brand as I'm not confident that Essteele's products are worth the money and if there ever were a fault, I can't trust their service. After contacting Myer, they asked I return the product at their expense and offered me a full refund. So that's my review, I hope it helps others make a decision.
Beautiful light pan and non stick still going strong 11 months later
Lovely light pan (24cm frypan) to use and no need for any oil. Just give your food a little wriggle and it will slip straight out. Have been using now for 11 months and am extremely happy with the pan. Heats quickly and the handle green light tells you when its ready. Cooks quick and easy without sticking and so washing up is a breeze. No scratches or marks and still looks like new. Handle never gets hot on stove top, but haven't tested it the oven as yet. For arthritic hands and weak wrists I couldn't be happier. Now looking to but another size to replace my big frypan.
I have the 30cm one and this is the one I now use most often. It heats evenly and the nonstick coating is still good almost a year after I got it and despite sometimes using it at high temperatures, we'll see if it continues to last. On sale it was only 40 dollars more than the vastly inferior Tefal ones at Target and worth every cent.
