I can't wait to try it out on a few things that my other pans just don't seem to "fit" what I'm cooking. It seems very well made with a tight fitting lid and comfortable handle.
The 375 for oven use is because of the silicone on the handle which as you've stated are really nice.
On the stove top it's good up too 500.

When I hear chicken fryer I think of something like a high sided 10" saute pan.

My everyday pan is a non-stick wok with a wood handle. I love it.

I guess the part I don't understand is why can it withstand the heat of an oven, but not a dishwasher? Why are some pans not dishwasher safe?
At any rate it's a great pan.

It's because of the chemicals used for cleaning that get combined with the heat. The heat itself isn't bad as you've noticed, but heated water loaded with harsh chemicals is a combination that can damage the non-stick coating.

Interesting... thanks for the head's up! I always thought it had to do with the plastic (or whatever) handles.....

I've never put any of my cookware, except Corningware, in the dishwasher. I much prefer to wash it myself. Just me.

I put my SS clad cookware in the DW depending on how soiled it is.

You may have noticed that bare aluminum comes out of the DW black. Chemicals in the detergent react with th aluminum to turn it black.
