I absolutely LOVE this pan! My mac and cheese hasn't come out any better. But the handle to the top is HORRIBLE!!!! I just broke my second top. Split it in half because I dropped it due to the handle being so small. That coupled with the top being so heavy because it's stonewear, when you have the oven gloves on, you can't grip the handle, so it just slips. I am writing HO to let them know to redesign the handle. Like I said, I love this pan, but man, I now have to sned it back again for them to replace the top again. That is such a drag!
