Excellent, but with one glaring fault.
on 5 April 2007
I bought this pan from Amazon, and it is very good value and well made. But it has one glaring fault:- The handle gets boiling hot when in use. The instructions say "WARNING The handles of your cookware could become hot. Please use oven gloves or an oven glove at all times."
Oven gloves are for removing hot items from the oven, not for each time one wishes to move a pan on/off the cooker. It is simply not acceptable these days to have handles that can badly burn the skin (which happened to me.) Even cheap pans costing a couple of pounds have bakerlite or similar to prevent burns.
I dont want to put anyone off buying it. As I say, it is basically well constructed and solid, and does an effective job.
I suggest "buy it......but use with care!"
Or alternatively, Amazon do a Meyer poacher that looks much better for a few quid more.......I wish I'd bought that!
