Textured Frypan Bottoms?

Hi, new member here, first real post...

 

Lately I've noticed proliferation of frypans, both clad and nonstick, that have a textured pattern in their floors.  For example, All-Clad D3 Armor and Fissler Crispy Steelux in clad and Hexpan, Analon X,and Freiling Black Cube.  The ad copy is all over the place, with some makers claiming better/crispier browning, and others touting extreme durability.

 

Does anyone here have actual experience with any of these?  Would you say any of the claims are true, or are they just the usual NEW! puffery?

 

Thanks

I have a Fissler with the textured surface.  I like the pan.  I suspect the textured surface may help prevent sticking but that is not a scientific observation.
