When i got them, the pans had/have a really smooth feel - a bit hard to describe really - i just assumed it was some sort of non-stick coating. But just checking Bobs site, you're right, there is no mention of non-stick! Although a bit more searching leads me to find that the ECA40[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Bitstream Vera Sans, sans-serif]2 pan has the non-stick coating, not these. Sorry for any confusion.
