Very tricky handle
on 14 August 2014
I have yet to cook with the pan and it may be amazing in use, but I've just spent such a long time this morning trying to find a screwdriver that will actually fit the very awkward space left for you to fasten the handle to the pan itself. Very awkward position. Flat pack furniture is easier than this and I'm not someone who has difficulty with this sort of thing. This is a really bad design feature. Firstly, it's not clear which way up the bolt fastener goes and I only realised when I started fastening it and having trouble that there's a tiny little groove for the handle to sit in that is hardly noticeable.
Time will tell, when I come to use it, but I have to be honest, I'm not confident that the handle will stay in place and I can't go any tighter with the screw now as it's beginning to lose its thread from simply attaching it the first time. Here's hoping it cooks well as I'm already doubtful about the product and I'm almost nervous to lift to off the heat for fear of the handle coming off. It really doesn't feel secure to me. I think I might be buying a pan with the handle already FIRMLY in place.
