I have had my eye on these pans for a while. Paderno, in general, is pricey, but the quality is worth every penny. The frying pans I got were on sale, which was a bonus. I assume this was because the pans had last year's colour for the coating (grey) 'cause the 2016 colour is black. I just preferred the grey color so, I was happy to get them with last year's colour. I'm extremely impressed with the pans - they are excellent quality and do everything the web site says they will do. They have a 25 year warranty and can be used on all cooktops, including induction. They are also PFOA free, which is a healthy and environmentally friendly choice. If I had to, I would buy them again in a heartbeat. Customer service was also a plus. I ordered a cheap item to take my total over $100 so I didn't have to pay shipping. The item was out of stock, but the Paderno rep went above and beyond to ensure that I got something that I wanted. There was a difference of a couple of dollars between the item that I eventually got and the one I ordered, but I was not charged any addition amount.
