I would like to buy a new pan for making fudge but I am not sure what I am looking for. I know a heavy based pan is good for fudge.

would this one suit:

SCANPAN Maitre D' 12cm Saucepan

That looks too small.

Yes I have realised that! I had a blond moment and thought it was 12cm deep!

Going to have a look at these later... http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/sol/shop/home_and_garden/cookware/pots_and_pans/saucepans/122264291_cooks-collection-copper-tri-ply-20cm-saucepan.html

Don't like fudge, but I would probably use a cast iron pan or even a pressure cooker (without the lid)

I'd agree with that. And perhaps put a heat diffuser under it, to avoid scorching.
Haven't made fudge since I left the US. There are excellent reasons for that, one being my waistline.

I've read bad things about using cast iron pans to make candies.

I've bought the one in the link from Sanisburys so will see how it goes

Just looked at it, it seems a bit shallow at 9.9cm.

I suppose it depends on how much fudge you are planning to make, but a jam pan would be suitable. Hello, everybody. Been a bit busy lately, haven't had time to look in.

Haha, love these kind of questions. Googled it, here goes. Stainless steel, heavy, deep enough to hang a thermometer on the side without touching the bottom, straight sided, will hold twice as much volume as the ingredients being used,at least. Not cast iron because, accordingly, it doesn,t distribute the heat evenly. Not much of an ask then..lol.xx I,m never gonna make fudge again, ever, it now sounds far too difficult for a fool like me.

Well done on being able to use Google! Why didn't I think of that /sarcasm. I was aware of the features needed but was hoping for someone to recommend an actual pan.

Ivan, it's the same depth as one that I have used to make fudge in and that was ok. I won't be making large batches. Thanks for your help.

Lakeland will have the pan you are after Alexander. Great selection and sizes usually.

I was just laughing at the fact that google answers make everything sound so complicated, and, amazingly , not everyone thinks to look it up on google etc etc. they like an answer from someone who has practical experience, I don,t, so I looked it up......so er so.xxx
