Excalibur coating, feedback please.

Hello,

Do you own a pan, pot... that have a excalibur coating? I'm looking for some info from cooks that use it everyday. I'm going to be buy myself an allclad ltd roti pan that's discontinued but at a really good price. I don't plan on using metal utensils on it. I was wondering what are people's thoughts on excalibur coating?

I had to look it up. It sounds like another attempt to differentiate their version of teflon coating. Is that the coating that All-Clad uses?

From what I read online AC was using it on LTD 1 that is discontinued. I was looking around ebay and the only pans... being sold are LTD 2 without the excalibur coating.

I'm not a fan of non-stick coating on general use pans.

I'm thinking about getting the roasting pan that's 16 x 13 x 3 The only reason I want to get it is because I can use it on the stove top for gravy.

Thanks Andy!

I've been looking for a stainless, roaster without a non-stick coating at a decent price. I am concerned that using my whisk on a non-stick coating would damage it. Not a big fan of non-stick in general.

I had the non-stick coating get rubbed off by the feet of the roasting rack. Only SS for me from now on.

I don't remember. It was a Calphalon roaster from a few years ago.
