LR 5 I'm very satisfied with this pan. I made curry, fried donkatsu and made soup with this and it's easy to clean every single time. The bottom is also still clean, no carbon marks. At first I was sceptical because it's aluminium composite but it's actually heavy but not too heavy. It conducts hear well. The handle is strong and sturdy and no need to worry about screws. The lid is a very useful addition. The only concern is the small gap that is created by the pouring spout although the lid is on. It's not a tight seal but no problem when cooking, just be aware of insects going in if you're going to keep food for later.
