What are the benefits of dimpled or textured pan interiors?

Hard Anodized Cookware

Some manufacturers of plain (not hard anodized) nonstick aluminum offer cookware with dimpled or textured interiors. Some claim the pattern or texture protects against utensil abrasion and provides extra nonstick durability. Though the small portion of the nonstick in the recessed areas might be protected, this is not sufficient to keep food from sticking in the pan once the non-protected area is removed through abrasion.
