This pan is only 2 months old and the finish is flaking. I can't use it because I'm afraid the flakes will get in the food. To send it back would cost more than the pan itself. I've been looking at the stainless steel all-clad electric skillet. any feed back on that? Thank you

it is probably not a non-stick surface
having said that the cooking oil you use has a lot to do with sticking to the pan
If the instructions are correct you do not use spray oil, cooking oil or anything on a non-stick surface as It ultimately removes the non-stick quality of the teflon surface
If you must use some additive then rice oil is the best as it is supposed not to affect the surface of the pan and is better for you than cholesterol containing oils
non stick coating are volatile and have a short life span depending on the frequency of cooking and washing which wears it out if you are a keen amateur cook/chef my advice is go for HARD ANODISED which is russian space technology in your kitchen or classic copper pots/pans but they are costly, to help preserve your non stick 1. do not wash straight after let it cool down, 2. always use plastic or wood utensils.3. be gentle, hope it helps.
I got the phone # 4 Toastmaster on line, called them. They said the pan was 2 old 2 have the plug in stock any more. I called a local repair man who said he could put a new cord in the present "plug". Has to solder & re-wire temp. plug.
Thank u for asking, u have a good source for people 2 go 2 4 lots of issues--very effective. I'm glad 2 know u're there!
Thank you for writing back about my stuck fry pan. Guess what, I did it. First, I put it in the freezer and by physics of course steel contracts. So I waited about 1 and half hour and then I took it out and w/a steel spatula I pried it open. I guess it was overly pressurised. I was a happy camper. Love my Presto Pride pans I have had them since I was in the Marine Corps back in the 60's. Went to a demonstration in someone's home. Paid a pretty penny for it then but look how long it lasted. Thank you again for listening to me. Sincerely, Lorraine J.
Seems they are all the same and that must be the design as mine does the same thing.
If your product is less than 1 yr old and you have your receipt, (you can fax, email or snail mail it ) they will send you another. Or if you dont they "might" ask you to cut the cord off and send it in, only to wait a couple of months for your replacement.
Hi, Your skillet is either defective or someone has left it on high with nothing in it. Either way, if it is still under warrenty, I would try and return it. As there is some debate about the toxicity of teflon, I would be very careful about using this unit any further.
If you are going to keep the skillet, try using steel wool to remove the loose teflon, maybe even sanding it all off if you want, then polish with fine steel wool and use the skillet as a regular uncoated electric fry pan.
Hope this helps, and if you found this response satisfactory, please vote. Thanks and good luck.
