The Spirit features the same Thermolon coating as the winning Greenpan, but it's 11 ounces heavier. That means all of the same pros, with the added benefit of improved heat conductivity, but that small perk doesn't necessarily justify spending an extra $40. The differences between it and the Greenpan were negligible. [$90; chefscatalog.com]
