We have had a Woll pan for the last three years - initially it was superb - now it's sticky. It still does great cooking - good heat retention, distribution etc, but it ain't non stick any more.
I am considering buying a replacement despite the cost, but I'm left wondering - is there a re coating option from the manufacturer ?

I too have had a Woll pan for some 2 years and after initially being overjoyed by it's non-stick properties and therefore tolerant of its weight and non-dishwasherbility. However, I am now stuck with a cumbersome, heavy frying pan that needs soaking and hand washing after each use. I have seen the guys at the exhibitions who've said it needs re-seasoning but despite following their instruction it seems the non-stick has gone for good

I was told by a Woll salesman at an exhibition that the reason my pan had lost its non-stick was due to carbon build up. He said the way to remove and re-season was to bring the pan up to a high heat and keep wiping over with clean pieces of kitchen roll which had clean oil on - you keep on doing this with fresh pieces of kitchen roll until they come away clean. You then allow the pan to cool and it's supposed to be like new - however:

1. you fast realise you can't do this many times unless you have asbestos hands!
2. you go through quite an amout of kitchen roll
3. I personally didn't find it made any difference at all - despite now having performed this several times on the pan

My pan is now so much hassle to clean I rarely use it.

Still agree, that for the first year it was awesome!
