We bought this pan as we had just had an induction hob installed. It's a great pan not too heavy and cooks steaks like a dream. The quality and the price were great too .

I seldom write reviews, but this item was perfect. It was despatched by the supplier the next morning & recieved the following morning. I did not want a heavy (eg cast iron) pan, nor did I want to spend too much for perhaps rare use - such pans for induction hobs often are heavy or expensive.
I used it to cook fillet steak the same evening ... perfection ! The added bonus was that it was a doddle to clean. I think it will be used more than I thought and was better quality than I had expected.
If you are an induction hob owner, and looking for a griddle pan at a sensible price, you will not regret buying this item from this supplier.

I gave this a 4 star before using it but if a ten was available it would get it. This the most effective clean and washable griddle you may experience. This replaced an £80 procook cast iron griddle and it is so so much better. I use gas so cant comment on induction but it is fantastic with gas and very quick whether it be sausages or loin chops.

Having never owned a griddle pan before, I took a chance on this one after reading so many positive reviews. I am delighted that I did. Last night it helped me produce the best steaks I have ever tasted. Perfectly sealed and a joy to eat in just under five minutes, with no hissing, spitting or smoke, and no oil required (just seasoned with salt and pepper before cooking). Better still, I popped the griddle in the dishwasher afterwards and it cleaned up a treat. Buy this. You won't be sorry.

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.

I think very highly of Andrew James as a brand, and this item is again definitely of very high quality.
As some other have mentioned before, it is true that the handle can sometimes get a bit lose after a few heating/cooling cycles.
This is due to the different expansion/contraction rates of the two metals in contact with heat. However, the handle is of sturdy construction and is easy to tighten up, not like the flimsy riveted versions you see on other lighter pans.

I could not take only half a star off, so one whole star came off in my rating, but that is a bit harsh.

To get best results my ceramic hob, I found I needed to give the pan a couple of minutes to heat up before placing my steak on it.
I also follow my mum's advice and wipe the warm pan with a paper towel with a bit of (sunflower) oil on it to protect it further from loosing its (it seems) hard-wearing non-stick coating. I only use wooden implements and it seems the surface has no blemish thus far.

I would recommend this item.
It is also cheaper than many competitors and yet of superior build quality.

Having looked at more expensive and heavier items I was very pleased to find that this item performed well and is a lightweight to handle and store. I had despaired of finding a lightweight pan to use on my new induction hob and had resigned myself to a more expensive cast iron version when I spotted the reviews for this one. Speedy delivery and a super pan. I hope to get a lifetime of use out of it. (Jamie Oliver has a lot to answer for!)

Received this griddle pan to replace old one which I thought was good until I tried this one which is much superior quality - it is a really well made product and the pouring spouts on both sides are really useful for draining excess juices. A great addition to my induction-friendly saucepan range!
