I also am leery of Teflon and other similar products. I know they get most of the bad stuff out of it before the process is complete, but Teflon is so bad to peel off and get in your food. I've probably swallowed a cup full of it over my lifetime.
When I saw this anodized skillet, I thought this might be worth giving a try. WOW! Not only is the skillet non-stick and wonderfully so, but it was designed by a real chef. I don't know who, but from the moment I picked it up I could tell. It's well-balanced. The handle will never come loose. The handle is metal, but never gets hot where you hold it. (does get hot next to the skillet, though) This means you can put it in the oven!
But there is one more little trick that this skillet knows, and I don't see many people explaining it. It looks like the food would slosh out if you try to flip with this skillet, but in fact the food goes straight up, and a little back toward the center; the perfect behavior for hot food that's being flipped into the air and turned and caught again. Why? It's not evident in pictures or even when looking right at it, but if you feel just below the inside top edge, you will feel a subtle "lip" that is precisely enough to direct the food back toward the center without overdoing it. Be careful, though: this skillet will spoil you. After using this skillet, you may find others a little harder to flip food with. You get used to this, and others don't feel right anymore.
I've been using it a couple months, now. Not a scratch on it. Nor is there a crumb of food or stain of oil on it. Oh... also, I use metal spoons in it. Carefully, of course, but the important thing is that metal isn't inevitably going to scrape off the finish. It's very durable. I clean it with a paper towel while it's still warm. Sometimes I'll dampen the towel a little, so that it collects food better, but other than that, I don't add anything to it. Just wipe it out. It comes clean!
I have seen no signs of scratching or damage. I do hand wash it (you can practically just rinse it out) and I also use silicone tools (although you aren't supposed to have to). I'm pretty demanding, and am delighted with this purchase.
