I LOVE BELGIQUE. I have the frying pan, and I initially HATED it. I had the same problem as a lot of others... Food seemed to stick like glue! After hearing so many good things about belgique, I knew I had to be doing something wrong. I looked it up, and you MUST USE THE PAN PROPERLY! Now that I know how to use it, I LOVE THIS PAN!!!
The secret is to preheat the pan on a medium low setting for about 10 minutes until the pan is good and hot. To check and see if it's ready, sprinkle a teeny bit of water on the pan. If the water sticks and sizzles, it's not ready. If the water beads up and slides across the surface of the pan in little droplets, then it's hot enough. (When you preheat the pan, the metal expands and closes all the teeny tiny microscopic scratches/cracks in the pan leaving nowhere for the food to stick. ) Once it's hot, put a little oil in followed by your food. Nothing will stick, and I mean nothing. Not even hash browns. Seriously.
