So, wake up, Sleepyheads (11 days without a post in Cookware?). Has anyone here tried the SS-PTFE matrix pan that Frieling sells as “Black Cube”?
I like the idea of the hard SS lattice that protrudes slightly above the soft PTFE; it appears that these pans will play well with metal utensils. But I wonder if (a) they are as nonstick as “regular” PTFE pans, and (b) the nonstickiness will last any longer (or be thermally degraded just like “regular”).
I’ve visited with several sales types who claim to have Black Cube pans at home, and they say they like them, but none who have had them long enough to judge after months of regular use.
I also don’t know if these pans have anything else going for them, like thick conductive cores.
Who can tell me?
