Cook Pro Thin Cast Iron Fry Pan
at this point I am not happy with this pan.
Finish is not truely non stick. Did not perform well making a fritatta. Will try again before returning pan to. Bed Bath and beyond. I will try other recipies to be sure.

i love these.
I use them every day. have all three pans and the wok, and I love how they have the good qualities of cast iron without the weight. The silicone coating, btw, is just on the outside, and doesn't impact cooking. I have the wok, too. Also excellent. I only wish they'd come out with a lightweight cast iron two-burner griddle.

I was so excited to get this thin cast iron because of its weight and existing reviews. However, when I received the pan, it was pleasantly light weight, but unfortunately not what I expected for a cast iron. First, I followed the instructions and cleaned it with hot water/no soap. When I tried to wipe it with a paper towel, I could not get the soot out of the pan. The more I wiped, the more there was to wipe. So, I decided to wash it again and oil it, and the soot was gone. However, after I scrambled my egg and washed the pan as instructed, the soot came back. I then decided to season it, and the pot turned sticky. I tried contacting Cook Pro, but could not find any contact information to help address my problem so I returned it for an Emeril cast iron. Yes, it is heavier, but it works perfectly!

Eager to try this pan, but it was defective
The pan held promise: it was cast iron so it would retain and spread heat evenly AND lightweight so I wouldn't break my wrist using it. Unfortunately, when it arrived my husband found a pinhead size, perfectly round hole near the handle, as if someone had drilled through it deliberately. The labeling the pan came wrapped in was also strangely riddled with grammatical and spelling errors, as if the manufacturer didn't really care or notice flaws in any phase of their operation. Our pan was probably a rare defect, but I'm not eager to try another product from this maker in the future.

This is NOT cast iron
Calling this cast iron is a joke. Actual cast iron is cheap, durable, and long-lasting. This is some weird cast iron knock-off. It's coated in silicon. Which is another word for non-stick coating. Real cast iron does not need to be coated in anything. After using it a few times it actually builds up its own all-natural coating without the use of harsh chemicals that WILL leak out into your food. Cast iron is really cheap to. If you are looking for a small frying pan like one of these, just pay the extra $5-$10 and get a real one. The brand "Lodge" is really good. I received this as a wedding gift and will be promptly returning it.

Excited to finally have a cast iron pan BUT
So excited to get my thin cast iron pan in the mail today, but I can't seem to get it clean enough for use. I followed the instructions and cleaned with hot tap water and a paper towel, but every time I think it is cleaned and try to wipe it, the paper towel has brownish spots on it. Since i washed it twice, i thought I should treat it with vegetable oil, and wipe it down. Well, that was even worse. This time the towel was black. I want to make some pancakes, but need a clean pan. HELP!

Like my 12" pan, I love this pan except for the fact that the handle gets hot.
