YEAH! Great news. Let us know what your impressions are, how the seasoning process goes for you, and most importantly how they cook.

Umm...they cook over a heat source...don't they? I'm going to reread the thread and make sure I read the directions that come with them for the seasoning. I want them to be the best, blackest pans I ever used.

Heh! Shrek asked me if he could buy a watch, like he needs another (he has a watch fetish), I told him, "Sure." After he ordered it I ordered the pans. He's going to go ape over the sauté pan, it will be well used by the both of us.

After spending some $600 - $800 over the past 35 years for repairs on my wife's Rolex datejust oyster perpetual, I bought her a Citizen Ecodrive last year. So far it has performed better than the Rolex.

SO had a Rolex. Anytime you sent it in for a repair (scratched crystal, broken stem, etc.) they wanted several hundred dollars for cleaning too. A real money maker for them.

An old boyfriend gave it to her and it got expensive to keep so she gave it to her daughter. She doesn't even wear a watch now.

I am not sure you can count him getting hit in the head with it as him "using" it.

I got them from chefscatalog.com I didn't the the set as I'm sure I would have problems lifting the 12" skillet. I got the 8", the 10" and the 10" sauté.
