| The Jamie Oliver Survival Kit by Tefal is a godsend to those who are not lucky enough to have a huge kitchen yet demand quality equipment when preparing their latest culinary masterpiece.|
Obviously the most appealing aspect of these pans is the ability to save space as they will only occupy as much valuable space in your cupboards as a regular wok would. Not only will these pans save space but they will look good while they are doing it, as their unique blue camouflage design is a welcome change to traditional cookware.
However, one should not assume that the Survival Kit is merely a gimmick. The appearance and extra cupboard space should perhaps instead be viewed as an added bonus. The survival kit benefits from the technology and expertise that all Tefal products do, allowing it to compete with other top end cookware available.
The "thermospot" is a small ring in the centre of the pan with lines that disappear when the pan is at optimum temperature to cook with, ensuring that you can achieve that perfect dish every time. It should be noted that these pans take very little time to heat up, and reach this optimum temperature in no time at all, be it a dry pan or boiling water. Once your food is cooked you can then simply remove the handle and place the pan on your table ready to dish up.
Once youre done cooking with your pans and have enjoyed the delicious meal youve slaved over, there is probably nothing less appealing than standing at the sink, hand washing your lovely, shiny pans. But they deserve to be cared for and looked after, right? Surely a dishwasher would ruin them? This is not the case. The Jamie Oliver Survival Kit is completely dishwasher safe, coming up sparkling clean and unscathed every time.
All in all this is a superb set of pans, perfect for anyone who is short on space or simply desires some more aesthetically pleasing cookware to spice up their kitchen. The quality of the pans is excellent and worthy of the Jamie Oliver name - James Early, Amazon.co.uk
