Stainless steel vs stainless steel with a coating?

We just received these awesome new pots and pans for Christmas. 10 piece with 2 frying pans. I was going to buy a nice stainless steel set myself but my SIL figured it would be a good present. Awesome. She bought this really nice looking set, says stainless steel. But the frying pans appear to have a coating, something with a red circle in the middle that shows up or disappears when hot enough. Are these going to be as good for searing and browning as plain stainless steel? submitted by /u/nov1290 [link] [comments]
