I purchases the skillet about a year ago. There was no way out of the "free" chopper. I ordered anyway. Seasoning the pan was easy. It worked like a charm for about 6 months. I went through the seasoning process again to no avail. It fries eggs ok, but one must take great care with scrambled eggs. It is easy for them to stick, and hard to clean up the mess. I still use the skillet, but I am glad I didn't get the entire set.
