Avoid Gotham Steel Pans

The pan features Gotham Steel’s award-winning Ti-Cerama non-stick coating, which is a combination of non-stick ceramic and titanium. Pan is advertised as scratch-resistant and very durable but in reality, non-stick coatings reliability is bad. Unfortunately, because of all the negative customer feedback on Gotham Steel pans, we cannot wholeheartedly recommend it.

Ceramic non-stick cookware has completely changed the world of non-stick cooking. Now, there are cookware ranges available that do not use toxic non-stick coatings. Even though it is healthier to cook with, ceramic also has other benefits like the fact that it is more heat transparent and more scratch-resistant than other non-stick cookware like T-fal.

Gotham Steel is one of the newest manufacturers of ceramic coated cookware and claims to be the best.  Gotham Steel specializes in manufacturing durable non- stick cookware. They also make knives and griddles and other cookware accessories. They are endorsed by Chef Daniel Green.

Features

Gotham Steel pans with titanium non-stick have a distinct look with its copper-colored interior and a glossy black exterior. It is constructed out of aluminum, which is known to provide constant and even heat when cooking. Its construction makes it lightweight and comfortable to use. The pan features Gotham Steel’s award-winning Ti-Cerama non-stick coating, which is a combination of non-stick ceramic and titanium. This coating is designed to ensure easy cooking without any oil or butter, and like all other Gotham Steel products, this coating is PFOA, PFOS, and PTFE-free. Unfortunately, the general feedback from customers has been negative and the coating has not lived up to the manufacturer’s claims.

Quality

The non-stick coating is designed to withstand the use of metal utensils when cooking and be scratch resistant. The quality of the coating is not as superior as advertised by the manufacturer and the majority of customers have been disappointed. The pan is both dishwasher and oven safe up to 500F. It can be used on most hobs except induction. The pan is deep enough to cook spaghetti, stir fry or even bake a cake, but it is not too deep to make flipping when cooking difficult. This non-stick pan can be used in both the oven and on the hob and it is also flameproof, allowing you to flambe your food. Users, however, have found the pan to be of poorer quality than was advertised.

Ergonomics

The handle has an ergonomic design that provides a comfortable grip when cooking. The stainless steel handle stays cool when cooking and has a conveniently placed hole at the tip of the handle which can be used to hang it up when drying it or storing it away.

Sizes

The pan is available in three different sizes; 9-inch, 11-inch, and 12.5-ich.

Durability

If bought directly from Gotham Steel, the pan has a one year warranty and 90-day money-back guarantee. Unfortunately, the majority of people who have purchased this pan are not happy with their purchase. More than 50 % of customers commented that they were disappointed by the durability of the coating. Some say that the coating only lasted them two weeks and then they had to start oiling their pans to make sure nothing stuck when cooking. The ‘slide out of the pan’ cooking they expected was not delivered. This is a big downside considering that this is one of the pan’s main features. We have a dedicated article on the most durable nonstick pans

Pros

  • The design of the pan ensures great heat conductivity when cooking.
  • The pan is oven safe and dishwasher safe.
  • The pan’s unique flameproof feature allows for great versatility when cooking.

Rating

2 out of 5.

Verdict

The non-stick performance of this pan is greatly exaggerated in TV commercials but does not live up to the promises made. Unfortunately, because of all the negative customer feedback on this frying pan, we cannot wholeheartedly recommend it. The 8-inch non-stick Arkadia fry pan from Vollrath offers much better non-stick durability for the same price. Another good option is Granite Stone Pan and Blue Diamond Pan

Gotham Steel 11” Non Stick Fry Pan Titanium and Ceramic Copper Coating, Dishwasher, Metal Utensil and Oven Safe
  • Award winning Ti-Cerama coating ensures the ultimate release -- everything just slides right off the pan, no need for oil or butter
  • Ultra-durable, scratch-proof & metal utensil safe
  • Aluminum composition ensure even heating distribution all around
