Does the 8" pan have a V-shape cut-out handle that reduces heat transfer to the handle?
The handles are v-shaped but there is not a cut-out. The handles may become hot.
Great pan and heats up very even and fast. Excellent service and quick shipping . Sears and browns meat ie pork chop, steak, etc quick and with ease. My go to pan now!!!!
These Blue Diamond pans are by far the best pans I've ever had! I bought an 8", 9.5", and 11" from this site. I love cooking in them, and NOTHING sticks! As long as you don't use above medium heat, everything cooks up perfectly. I also bought a grill pan, a huge 12" pan, and I bought glass lids for all except the 8" (which I don't need). And even though you can wash them in the dishwasher, I don't. They are so very easy to wash by hand because nothing sticks. I'm very happy with my purchases.
