5.0 out of 5 stars Good heavy weight pan for Aga cooking 23 Oct 2010
By Alessi Lover TOP 500 REVIEWER
Purchased this skillet (fry pan) for use on an Aga, and found it to be a great item, if somewhat heavy. So heavy I can't use it myself, but what a better excuse than not to be able to cook breakfast as the pan is too heavy.

Now when it comes it does have a 'Victor' label on it not just ICD which is confusing (as would have thought it to be called that 'Victor' on the website).

Joking apart it is well made and cooks your items to perfection.... a little too heavy for pan cake tossing though. Think of Tom and Jerry cartoons and the frying pan action ... and you have it.

It has a super even bottom which is necessary for aga's so no wobble factor. Can also be used for other types of cookers except microwaves. So really a good all rounder to have.

Price wise so much cheaper than the big 'branded French' make but without any compromise.

Easy to clean and no sticking, plus healthy frying.

One that I think will last a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 13 Mar 2010
Its a big heavy iron pan and thats what I wanted. Even heat distribution cant be beaten. After its seasoned I feel its a better non-stick than teflon and you can use metal utensils in it. Just wait till its black before passing judgement. Always put it away with a light rub of cooking oil to stop rust. Will last a lifetime and pass to the next generation. Dont drop it on the cat or try to flip pancakes, a bit heavy for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent once you have gotten used to it. 26 April 2012
By Donny
I bought this pan as I was looking for something I could use in both the oven and on the hob and liked the idea of not ingesting and inhaling PTFE.

I hadn't used bare cast iron before so didn't really know what to expect. The first few uses were a disaster, whilst it says pre-seasoned, it still needs to be seasoned properly a few times before using it. I started by following the instructions of just getting on and using it to try and develop the seasoning but every time that I used it, food stuck that required a lot of elbow grease to remove and probably damaged any seasoning build-up that had developed. What I ended up doing was to bake it in the oven with a layer of oil multiple times and start using it as a baking tray for greasy things like oven chips.

Three months of regular use onwards, it now has a thick layer of seasoning that has made the surface of the pan almost totally smooth, a stark contrast to the sand cast rough texture it started with, it also has excellent non stick properties.

The trick seems to be to use a thin wipe of vegetable oil before use and to preheat the pan, doing this it is now my daily omelette pan and can be cleaned with a dry piece of kitchen towel, or just by pouring some tap water in whilst still hot and rubbing with a washing up brush.

It becomes an excellent and versatile pan, it is just as non stick as a tefal teflon pan I have (and no longer use), can be used on the hob, grill and oven. It is easy to clean and for omelettes and steaks it cannot be beaten.

Downsides are the handle gets very hot, it weighs a lot, requires a bit more attention than non stick pans to begin with (although now it just requires a bit of oil) and I don't like others using it for fear of them washing it out with soap :) .

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough, fun to use pan 31 Dec 2011
Some months ago I purchased the Victor 11.5" Round Grill pan sold by cooking marvellous. With that being my first exposure to the delights of cast-iron cooking I got the bug and purchased this skillet.

It is more than a frying pan - it makes an excellent roaster too. I can honestly say that this produces the most excellent non-sticking roast potatoes I have ever made. The key I think is heat retention. Pull this pan out of the oven to turn your roasties and the pan will keep sizzling and cooking for a good few minutes - just like you see on the telly. Oil does not get a chance to cool down and ruin the food.

It has good non-stick properties but you must be realistic. It is not as slippery as non-stick. Some food may stick a bit but a metal slice soon frees the food. I fry eggs in this pan with a very tiny amount of oil and they release easily. Meat releases easily, especially if smeared with a little olive oil. In fact meat cooks brilliantly in this pan. I am getting used to searing thick-cut meat for a minute or two each side and then transferring the whole pan to the oven. You would have to melt this pan to destroy it which makes searing meat one of its strong points. You can pump an extrodinary amount of heat in to this cast-iron lump. Teflon coated non-sticks do not enjoy the same resilience to temperature - they begin to degrade at temperatures in excess of 260 C, which quite frankly I find shocking. I have a set of Circulon non-sticks and you have to be so careful with them. With this pan I could probably mix and bake cement in it and still find that it would happily fry an egg afterwoods.
