Pros: durable non-stick coating, easy clean up, even cooking
Cons: no lid

Where to begin... my husband loves his fried eggs. Every day. Of every week. I think his head would explode if he couldn't eat eggs each morning. As a result, we go through a lot of saute pans, as they are best suited to cooking two eggs at a time. Most of the 8 or 8.5-inch saute pans we've owned were fine for about six months, but thanks to the fact that my husband likes cooking his eggs over high-heat, initially, the non-stick surfaces tend to become damaged. 

We stumbled on the KitchenAid saute pan at a local 'big box' chain store, and despite its price, liked it immediately. The pan has a three layer non-stick surface over a core of aluminum, which allows for even heating. The bottom of the pan is stainless steel for ease of clean-up. It is a solid feeling pan... able to withstand a lot of use. It definitely heats evenly. No need to turn the pan frequently to assure each area is cooking adequately. It also features a cushioned handle, which keeps things cool. No need for a potholder to remove it from the stove top.

Best part? The pan is also oven-safe up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, so when he's not frying eggs, I can saute mushrooms or other items and keep them warming in the oven while I prepare other items.

Unfortunately, as is true with most saute pans, it does not come with a lid. But I have a slew of pots and pans, and happen to have a glass lid that fits perfectly.

This is a great product, and readily available. I strongly recommend the KitchenAid line of pots and pans for their quality and durability.
