Good for those who want more American goods in the kitchen. IMPORTANT UPDATE I have given the skillet a more thorough check due to multiple requests for its condition. First off, I searched any cracks and was unable to find any.I checked both sides and especially the handles and it looks fine to me. Second, I checked for any wobbling or warping when seated on a flat granite table. There is a slight wobble from left to right where you pour liquids out of. Even rotating and moving the pan at different spots of the table did not eliminate the wobble.
So the skillet is not perfect. But it looks flat to me. I did this for two main reasons.
To reveal any damage if hidden under the dirt/rust. The cleaning revealed no hidden cracks. But it did expose a small 2mm pit on the interior flat part of the cooking surface.
I can upload a picture of this if you wish to see it up close. Hope this is helpful in your decision.
Thanks again for your interest! Pit is 2mm in diameter. Triangle measuring ruler shows no noticeable warping in the cooking area or outside inner base (inside ring).
Wobble is under a millimeter in height when you push down on one side. The other side goes up a little. Your cooking surface may also be imperfect and your results may vary from mines.
