My husband wanted a square skillet with higher sides than what we owed. Picked up the Etnea and it is now my favorite piece of cookware I have ever used. It appears to be indestructible, that is, I’m convinced it is going to last for years and look the same as the day we bought it. It cooks beautifully. It is perfectly balanced. It doesn’t tip on the stove at all. It cleans like a dream. I can’t wait to replace all my cookware with Etnea by Moneta. Just wish I had known about it 35 years ago!
