    Boy, this is a hard pan to find! Since Amazon.com did not have this item in stock, I contacted T-Fal to see if it was still available and where I might buy it. Here’s the reply that I got from T-Fal:

    ========================================

    I ended up buying it from shopko.com since Amazon did not have it in stock. The item that I ordered (and received) is the exact part number that was reviewed by Cook’s Illustrated.

    All I can say is that Cook’s was right. This pan has amazing non-stick properties. I’ve been using the pan for several months now on a daily basis (I’m on a carb-restricted diet, so I eat fried eggs for breakfast every morning) and the non-stick properties of this pan are simply amazing. No sticking. Clean-up is a breeze. I’m VERY satisfied with this pan and will not hesitate to purchase another when this one wears out (hey, nothing lasts forever).

    I was looking to replace a cheap tfal pan I bought at Walmart for about $20. It was light but the heat did not transfer across the entire pan well leaving hot and cool spots. During my search for a new pan I happened to see an episode of the PBS show America’s Test Kitchen and low and behold they were testing non-stick fry pans. After I watched all that the pans went through, this one came out on top. So I searched and bought from Amazon. Very happy with it overall. Good weight for me…not to heavy…and it transfers heat well. One thing I might not have noted (it’s on the label) except for the show I saw is this manufacturer recommends that you season the pan once with oil before you use it. Just once…you never have to season it again. Never heard of anything like this before but I did it. The show also noted that the non-stick coating is proprietary so the manufacturers wouldn’t tell them how the coating was applied but this particular pan was said to have a four coat process where some of the other manufacturers was less. I think if you are interested in seeing the America’s test kitchen episode it’s probably still available on their website.

    Those who complain that they found this pan model (E9380864) at a lower price elsewhere are confused. They were looking at a different, quite inferior product. This model has been out of stock in stores and internet for months. The other, cheaper model has been mistaken for this one. I know; I bought one of them. The model number was completely different, but I thought it was a replacement. Not so.
