My Favorite Pans
My favorite pans out of all my cast iron.
First time buying one and excited to use it. Only reason for four stars is after reading other reviews butter pat only seems to respond to non perfect 5 start. And did so in a super arrogant way.. here hoping I get a response . Also butter pat, justifying quality only comes at full price is a bit of a stretch when your still making money on half off equipment.
Joan. Restaurant quality
I couldn’t find anything to make this restaurant quality. Flat, smooth, you must have a very exacting quality control dept. its light, smooth. Its my favorite cast iron pan amd i have all the new makers
It was with a little fear that I bought a restaurant quality pan. I read the reasoning behind the grading of pans, and thought why not give one a try? Frankly, on my pan I looked and looked and can't find why it was down graded. It cooks really well! I did meatballs tonight and they turned out perfect! I'm happy with all of my Butter Pat pans.
Pan wobbles and rocks
Purchasing a restaurant use pan, I expected to get some minor defects in the pan. Some casting flaws that wouldn't affect the overall cooking quality. What I wasn't expecting, was for the pan to have a pretty bad warp to the bottom of the pan causing it to not sit flat on the counter or on the stove. It's a shame, because it's a really nice pan with some minimal casting flaws (surface porosity). In my opinion it wasn’t worth the discount to get a pan that’s warped. It’s a roll of the dice on whether or not your pan will have a cosmetic flaw or a dimensional flaw in the pan.
Butter Pat Industries
Of course it has a noticeable flaw. If it didn’t it would be sold at full price. The reason our products are expensive is that we maintain very high quality standards. We let you know before making a Restaurant-grade purchase that they might not be flat, and that they WILL have noticeable casting defects. If you want our first quality: pay the price and get our best quality. If you are using a pan on gas or on a campfire or in a restaurant environment - where flatness and perfection isn’t important - by all means these pans offer the opportunity to save money.
