I do the same except I. Hi them at Costco. They usually have Tramontina set of three. Each set has been lasting 7-10 years.

Occasional high heat has not harmed them.

I got them at a try me price of $35.00 each. Not bad for 10 years of use.

Scan Pans are very finicky with regards to heat. A few degrees too high and they are no longer non-stick. My experience with that expensive brand. Yes, I used butter or oil. I tried making hash brown potatoes. Afterwards, I had problems with the non-stick.
Caslon, didn't it come with a warranty? I have no issues and haven't made sure not to use it on high heat.

I'm very happy with my Scanpan. I didn't get the oven proof kind with the removable handle though.

The best non stick pan I ever had is my cast iron. I wont say I have never had anything stick but it very rarely happens.

Walmart and Target ones are good, though if you want an even longer lasting Non-Stick pan I suggest this: https://www.amazon.com/Imperial-Home...ing+pans&psc=1
