Our Verdict

Out of the three pans, Granite Rock possesses the best features and least number of shortcomings. Granite Rock does not fall short on several fronts, unlike the other two.  It’s a well-designed pan that does not develop problems like elevating in the centre with food running toward the edges which do not cook recipes evenly. It is also comparatively easy to clean it as it requires no elaborate cleaning procedure that create hassles and consume time.

Another factor that works in its favour is the cost factor. Granite Rock costs the least of the three (and yet boasts of the best features). The other to do not really offer what one would expect after paying more.

Its pans are also oven-safe for up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. It performs the widest range of cooking functions including baking, which adds to its functionality and preference.
