QUESTION: CAN I MAKE SOUP IN THERE?
I have made beef/veggie soup and chili in my skillet, plus a pot roast in the oven. I love the versatility and size of this skillet!!
yes. absolutely, But it is quiet big to cook soup. The size is good for you stir-fry meet and vegetables.
I wouldn't see why not
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: DOES THE HANDLE GET HOT
Not at all. The handle stays perfectly cool. It is plastic
It gets a little warm, but not burning hot, you may want to use a hot pad just to be safe, but I've never had an issue with it being too hot to pick up with my bare hands.
No...not at all..
No, neither the long nor the short one seem to get hot.
Not at all
No, it doesn't.
We have used it for several months now and so far the handle has not gotten hot.
It's covered in plastic so it doesn't get hot when it's on the range and I am mindful of keeping the handle away from other heat sources like other burners that are turned on. If this is the only pot on your stove and the flame is properly positioned on the center of the pan and not askew, then the handle won't get any more than slightly warm to the touch.

QUESTION: IS IT SAFE TO FRY CHICKEN IN?
Yes
Yes
Yes
Yes
Yes
I fried chicken breast in mine several times! Love the size of this pan and flat bottom as it doesn't slide around like my other more expensive rounder bottomed pan and also the fact it has a cover that fits!
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: IS THIS PAN ALUMINUM?
I believe the body of the pan is aluminum, but the inside cooking surface is Teflon.
Yes and that is what makes it so great! It is lighter than the solid steel or stainless steel products. It does not cook as fast but it does not warp either.I really love it and it was one of the best purchases I have made for my kitchen.I use it several times a week. I hope this helps.
Hello S. Keyes! Yes this pan is indeed aluminum. I absolutely love this pan! It is lightweight, yet quite sturdy. Oven safe to 350 degrees, non-stick, and the extra handle makes moving it a snap.
yes, I think it is aluminum inside the body, the surface is some kind of non-stick materials.
Yes from what I can tell.
Yes it is, and very lightweight as well.
You are so welcome!
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: WILL IT BE SAFE TO USE ON ELECTRIC OR GAS RANGE?
Yes either one.
Yes I use on gas range all the time.
We have gas, but I do not see a reason why it would be unsafe on electric
Yes. Just not inside the oven. Handle is plastic.
Can be used on either range
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: DOES THIS PRODUCT WARP
I haven't had it warp, or had any problems with it at all. I really like it.
I have owned one for 3 years and it has not warped and food doesnt stick in it thats the reason I recently purchased another one from amazon and gave it as a christmas gift .
I bought this for my daughter and it has been used multiple times and it hasn't warped. It's a bit light so be care with it unattended on the stove. We always use plastic or wooden spoons to cook with this pan. I would buy this pan again.
So far, so good! I really like this pan. I've only had it for a month or two, but I use it frequently and it shows no signs of warping.
pan is nice works real nice .easy yo clean . you will be happy .

QUESTION: USE ON GLASS STOVE
Yes, we have a smooth glass top stove and it works great, I haven't had any problems.
Yes you can,my stove is a glass top stove so go ahead buy it you will Love it !!
I would not see why not. It is a great pan. I use mine almost everyday.
not sure, but instructions don't say anything in particular about not being able to use on a glass stove
it certainly has a smooth flat bottom, which should work fine. I have a glass top gas cooktop.
I do not have one,but I read a review from someone who does and said it "warped". Maybe an isolated thing. I love this pan! I coudn't be happier for the price! GREAT VALUE!
YES - it is safe on any type of stove, glass top, gas or electric!
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: CAN YOU USE THIS ON AN IDUCTION RANGE?
I have no idea. I have gas range now. I used my old one on an electric range. I know nothing about an induction range.
I have no idea, I have a gas range. You should go to the T Fal site maybe you can find an answer there.
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: CAN THIS PAN BE USED ON A CERAMIC TOP OR GLASS COOKING SURFACE?
After reading the instruction booklet, the General Safety Recommendations state the following: "T-fal cookware is compatible with gas, spiral or solid electric, ceramic (radiant) and halogen rangetops." Hope this helps.
This pan should be able to be used on the cooking surfaces that was inquired about. The instructions say that it can. I myself have used mine on gas and electric range tops. Works for me, hope you enjoy cooking with it too.
yes you can because it has a flat bottom on the pan and if you have any questions i found the answers on this site http://homeguides.sfgate.com/tfal-work-ceramic-top-stove-84802.html
#T-fal_A91082_Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: DOES THIS WORK WELL ON A CERAMIC FLAT TOP COOKTOP STOVE?
No
Probably induction burners. Pans must have steel/stainless steel in the bottom. See instruction/operators manual on stove.This is aluminum pan.
If induction burners No. This is aluminum pan.
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: CAN THIS PAN GO FROM THE RANGE BURNER FOR BROWNING TO THE OVEN AND AT WHAT TEMP DO YOU NOT EXCEDE?
The handles are plastic coated, so no... I don't think it's oven safe.
I've never placed it in the oven before...and I'm not sure if I would want to do that...don't know if it's oven-proof or safe...
I honestly don't know..I would never put this kind of pan in the oven.. but would recommend a cast iron skillet for that or a Pyrex pan..
I honestly cannot answer that..however I would not recommend putting this kind of pan in the oven as it is not designed for that.. I would reccomend getting a Pyrex baking pan or a cast iron skillet for that..they are both designed for high heat...hope that helps
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: DOES IT WARP AFTER SOME USE? I HAVE A GLASS (FLAT) TOP ELECTRIC OVEN.
It hasn't warped on me yet, but I haven't used it on very high heat.
No! This is great quality! It does not WARP!
I have a gas stove and it hasn't warped.
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: I READ THERE IS A VENT FOR STEAM. IS THERE A WAY TO CLOSE IT? THE WAY I WANT TO USE THIS, I WANT EVERYTHING CLOSED.
It's just a hole in the lid that's the "vent" so the only way to close it would be to put a towel or pot holder over it, or plug it in some way.
no way to close but shdnt need to in almost all cases ...a beautiful but very very big pan. i think you will love it ....
There is a vent for steam on this model but it's very small. Unfortunately, this does not work like pressure cooker where you can seal it tight. It's designed to let go some air through the hole.
No. It's a tiny hole, but not adjustable
Yes there is a small hole in the lid. No you can't close it.
#T-fal_A91082_Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: HOW MANY QUARTS?
5
When filled to the brim with water it holds approximately 23 cups of water which at 4 cups/quart equals about 5.75 quarts.
It's 5 guarts. Still freeze in it, bake in it, and put in the dishwasher.
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: IS IT OVEN PROOF? OVEN-SAFE?
Up to 350 degrees F.
The instructions/box say it's oven-safe up to ~350 degrees.
According to the paperwork I received with it it is supposed to be oven safe. I have never used it in the oven. It is a dream pan and I am very satisfied with it and would highly recommend it.
I haven't used it in the oven, but I can say it is kind of big so I'm not sure if it'll fit. Also, the handles are rubber so don't think it's save.
I've never tried it in the oven. Perhaps T-Fal could answer that for you either on their site or a phone call. Sorry I couldn't help.
We never tried it in the oven but I think the handle would melt.
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: CAN IT GO IN THE OVEN
No. The handles are plastic & will melt. You would need a stainless steel or cast iron pan for the oven.
This pan cannot be used in an oven, because of the plastic materials coating the handles.
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: PURCHASED "5 QUART JUMBO COOKER" FROM AMAZON, DON'T SEE ANY WHERE ON THE PACKAGE, "PFOA FREE", THE T-FAL SITE DOESN'T MENTION THIS, IS IT PFOA FREE?
From the cancer.org website:Other than the possible risk of fumes from an overheated pan, there are no known risks to humans from using Teflon-coated cookware. While PFOA is used in making Teflon, it is not present (or is present in extremely small amounts) in Teflon-coated products.
It is not PFOA Free. I bought two frying pans from walmart - T-Fal and it stated PFOA free. There have been numerous studies and article on the hazards of Teflon and PFOA - I suggest googling the.
#T-fal_A91082_Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: CAN YOU OPEN AND CLOSE THE VENT ON THE TOP?
No Ellen. Its just a hole.
No you cannot
No, it is open and can't be closed.
No. It is a permanent, but tiny hole. It is about the size of a kernel of popcorn.
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: IS IT SAFE TO USE METAL UTENSILS ON IT?
I only use wood stir
no
I wouldn't attempt using metal utensils on this pan. Plastic or wood is best for preserving the non-stick surface.
I don't think that's advisable.
I don't use metal on it as it probably would scratch.
Hey i wouldn't risk it with metal i bought a inexpensive silicone set Silicone Kitchen Utensils Cooking Set by Utensile Includes 5 Pieces Non-stick Cookware Gadgets - Spatula/Turner, Spoonula, Mixing Spoon, Slotted Spoon, Ladle and they work nice
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: I OWN THIS PAN, USE IT ON A COIL ELECTRIC RANGE. WILL IT WORK ON A SMOOTH GLASS TOP ELECTRIC?
Yes, in fact, that is the type of range I have. Works fine on it.
Absolutely, I use a smooth glass top.
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: IS THE INSIDE FLAT OR ROUNDED. I NEED TO BE ABLE TO FRY 6 EGGS AT ONCE AND NEED FLAT.
Flat... it is perfect for fried eggs, that is actually what we use it for most.
It is flat. You can get ALOT in this great pan.
It is a bit rounded. You could fit 6 eggs
It's flat and the edges of the pan are not tapered either so it's a nice size pan and cooking surface.
It's flat
Hi. I will be glad to answer your question. It is flat. A great pan. I bought mine so my husband could fix loads of potato and onions at once instead of two regular pans. He loves it. Hope you have a great evening. Sherri
FLAT
#T-fal_A91082_Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: IS THIS PAN OVAL, OR ROUND; IN SHAPE?
Round
Round
It is round. (PS - I love this pan)
It is round! And comes with the lid! I actually love it!
It is round
No problem! Anytime!
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: CAN I USE IT'S GLASS LID FOR FARBERWARE 12INCH DISHWASHER SAFE NONSTICK?
The pan is really too big for a dishwasher, with it being nonstick its really easy to wash by hand. The lid fits some of my other pans............ I really love the quality of this T-fal...........
I couldn't guarantee it, but it does fit fine on another 12 inch nonstick pan I have. As the other responder has said, pan is very large and may be a problem if you try to wash in dishwasher. Our experience has been that it cleans very easily by hand using soap, water and dish rag (probably avoid using a scruby...don't need one anyway).
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: HOW IS THE QUALITY OF NON STICK COATING?
I have been very pleased by the quality of the product. The non stick coating seems to be doing the job.
excellent - nothing sticks and it cleans easily
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: IS IT OVEN-SAFE? IF YES, TO WHAT TEMP. ALSO, IS IT MADE IN CHINA?
I don't remember specifically about the safe-to oven temp. Another site says it's safe to 350F but I can't find a T-Fal official statement right off hand. They now have a different model that has a hard-anodized, oven safe surface but I don't know if it's available in this size. I also didn't pay any attention to where it was made. Sorry I can't be of more help.
I have not used it in my oven. I only use for stove top. And I'm sorry, I didnt look to see if made in China. I should have, because I try to buy made in america. Hope this helps.
#T-fal_A91082_Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: WHEN YOU HEAT THE COOKING OIL IN THIS PAN (AS THE FIRST STEP OF STIR-FRYING SOMETHING), DOES THE OIL SPLATTER EASILY?
No. I have not had this problem.
I have not noticed that being a problem
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE PAN'S DIAMETER?
The pan is 12'' wide and 2 1/2'' deep. The cover is glass and has a tiny vent for the steam to escape. Great pan, I love it. Hope this helped.
12 Inches wide 3 Inches deep
It's about 12" in diameter
The pan is 12" in diameter and 2 1/2" deep. I use it for a large variety of meals, but mainly for cassarole prep.
As stated in the items Product Details - 12"
the top rim of pan is 12", the bottom diameter at the edge is just almost 11",/ and is 2 3/4 inches deep
I'm not sure if the exact size but it's between 12-13".
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE THIS CAN GO UP TO?
It is oven-safe up to 350F due to the phenolic handles.
They say oven safe is 350 deg. I would not go any higher then that
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: DOES THIS PAN LAST WITH FREQUENT USES?
i haven't used it too much so i don't want to say.......but i know my aunt swore by T-Fal and loved it. that is why i bought it.
I have had T-fal pans before and they do last. This one I just purchased recently and it will be fine as long as you use the correct utensils that do not scratch it. :)
It's been a daily driver in our house of 6 for 9 months and is just now showing signs of wear. This includes deep frying, frying etc.
I have used this pan quite often over the halogen burners and so far so good. No warping or any problems so far with it.
#T-fal_A91082_Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIAMETER IN INCHES OF THIS PRODUCT?
Exactly 12 inches'
twelve inches
It's 12"
12 inches in diameter. 22 inches from handle tip to handle tip.
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: IS THE NON-STICK SURFACE PTFE-FREE?
Apologies for any misinformation, as t-fal now does offer this item, but with the upgrade to ceramic nonstick liner, for $9 more. its worth the extra, as the nonceramic liner does show signs of wear and tear over time that might not be too healthy for the person consuming the food. try searching Amazon for "t-fal initiatives ceramic jumbo cooker".
I want to know that too. I do not want to purchase anymore teflon coated non stick cookware! its poisonous!
I can find nothing on the pan or the literature that says one way or another??? Sorry!
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: IS THE NONSTICK INTERIOR TEFLON OR SOME OTHER SURFACE MATERIAL?
The interior is Teflon.
I pretty sure it's Teflon
It is teflon and it is pretty good.
teflon
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN LIKE? IS IT SMOOTH? I HAVE A GLASS, SMOOTH TOP ELECTRIC RANGE.
No, it is not smooth it is grooved and in our (wife & I) opinion we would not use it on a glass top range. We could be wrong but we feel it would scratch the surface.
I don't recall as the pans are in my Florida house and I'm not there now. I can tell you they do slide on the burner grates on our gas stove, if that helps.
The bottom of the pan is grooved with concentric rings, like an electric stove burner (which we have). I have no idea if it would work on a glass-top.
#T-fal_A91082_Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: IN WHAT COUNTRY IS IT MADE?IT SHOULD SAY ON THE PAN OR PACKAGING
CHINA!
Sorry but threw away the box it came in and the pan does not give that information.
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: DOES THIS MEET THE LATEST USA SAFTEY NON CANCER REQUIREMENTS
Yes it does. I wrote the company to find the answer, because I didn't know. It's a good thing to know. Thank you for asking.
to find this exact item, with the addition of nontoxic ceramic no stick liner, try searching Amazon for "t-fal Initiatives ceramic jumbo cooker". Ceramic nonstick is the more health conscious choice. The nonceramic, regular jumbo cooker I examined carefully showed signs of wear and tear that one would not find on ceramic.
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: DOES THE PAN HAVE A THERMO SPOT HEAT INDICATOR ON ITS SURFACE?
no
not that I can tell.
I don't think so, since I've never heard of it..
no it does not
#T-fal_A91082_Review

QUESTION: I'M SURPRISED ABOUT THE LIGHT WEIGHT OF 15.2OZ FOR THIS PRODUCT. IS IT A MISPRINT? CAN SOMEONE TELL WHAT THE REAL WEIGHT OF THIS JUMBO COOKER IS?
It's weight is approximately 1-2 lbs. I love this unit. Everything cooks evenly it's clean-up is simple no scrubbing it's very durable.
It is about 3 lbs, it really is a light pan
I am not sure how much it weighs, but if you have concerns you do have two handles which you can hold the pan. I love it it is even and will cook your food wonderfully
#T-fal_A91082_Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

QUESTION: CAN THE GLASS LID BE BUT IN THE OVEN?
No, I wouldn't.
Hello dear buyers, I'm glad to answer your questions. This will surely fail to Oh
#T-fal_A91082

QUESTION: DOES IT HAVE A FLAT BOTTOM SO I CAN USE IT WITH HOT PLATE STOVE WITHOUT WOBBLE?
Yes, bottom is flat. I use on a glass top stove with no issue. Truly the best set of pots I have owned to date. Many reviews suggest, as does the manual, of not using HIGH heat when cooking, thus preventing damage such as warping.
Yes, it has a flat 12 inch bottom and straight sides (vs slanted sides). It should work fine on a hot plate stove.
It does have a flat bottom and works well on my electric cooktop.
#Specialty_Nonstick_Dishwasher

No. WearEver is its own company.
All it said was tfal on the pan and the package. Sorry.
