Well some of my money was returned for the pans that I had a reaction to but I may have said they sent the check in the wrong name. But my bank trusted me and put it through.
This morning they replaced that check with the correct spelling. So I ripped it up and posted a photo too prove I had not cashed it. I lost a fair amount of money and felt cheated but I'm not dishonest and I can live with my conscience.
I almost fainted when the hexclad wrote saying they are giving me a refund as well. that was very hard going but they didn't get away with my cash
they were not sold out when i picked mine out today. there were still four pans there. i went through all four and only one was in decent condition. the others had minor issues with the edges that could have been fixed with a grinder or file and then it would have needed to be reseasoned again, but otherwise any of the four would have done fine but i'm glad i was able to pick out the one i liked.

but i bought it at a grocery chain store for a bit less than their stated price on their website.
not sure yet when i'll use it, but the other nice thing about this pan is that it fits right on top of the pan i already have and the cover fits too so it won't take up any more shelf space than what i already was using. Merry Christmas to me!
when i was checking out the guy in front of me in line made a comment about it being useful for self-defense and then when i got up to the checkout lady she also mentioned it would be useful like that. i guess in the good old days plate armor was really a great idea after all...
I have an antique cast iron waffle iron that I love. Also a set of 3 frying pans of varying sizes, a dutch oven, and a griddle. They all get used often (some more than others). I use a chain mail scrub for any burnt spots, hot water with just a touch of soap. Dry over a flame on the stove, then a touch of coconut oil if it looks too dry. I've never bothered particularly with the bottom of the pan-- that's not the part I cook with!
