Yeah. The Peche sb with new handles has held up much better than the Cochon one did, so there is hope!
Those new ones you have get hotter much quicker and have decent temp control till the knobs melt like dardeau said, as I'm sure you know.
Congrats on the nice addition to the line.

I freaking love this thing. I've always dreamed of a pot that can hold heat like this, and the ceramic enamel is almost non-stick... and it just cooks everything so well... Anyway, before I joined this forum I was much more a cookware nerd than a knife nerd, although knife nerd me is catching up quickly.
On a Canada day "weekend" I realized that decent cutting board and a bunch of cloth is indispensable. Also a vacuum sealer, love it.

Since recently this large (some 9cm bowl diameter, but relatively shallow) rice spoon I ordered specially to get pasta and similar out of large and heavy copper pan. It has excellent design and was definitely worth the money:
