I've been using the Berndes non-stick pan for about nine months now. It is a very solidly built pan. It will never warp and the non-stick coating is still completely intact, no chips in it. I make pancakes and veggies burgers on it with no oil or other coating, just the dry surface of the pan. The pancakes were sticking a little bit the other day, I think because I'd used it for veggie burgers. Overall I give this pan an A grade.
I bought a new Green Earth Pan by Ozeri with the textured surface. I bought this one because it uses the ceramic coating which is hopefully safer than the regular non-stick surface used by Berndes and most other non-stick pans. I used it this morning for the first time to make pancakes and it was like a hockey puck on ice, extremely non-sticky, better than the conventional teflon type non-stick. I've heard that the ceramic coating eventually loses it slipperiness. I will report back in six months.
