Great, but could have been better.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Marco Pierre White, Green Pan and Russell Hobbs Hard Anodised Cookware Set, 5 Pieces, (Kitchen & Home)I bought these last week from Amazon to replace my stainless steel set. First thing to mention as I struggled to find out before buying is that these are not dishwasher safe. Russell Hobb say that putting them in the dishwasher could affect the non-stick coating. Whether you risk it or not is up to you, other reviewers say they've dishwashed theirs and not had a problem. I've not risked it yet!
The pans are heavier than my previous pans, a bit of a struggle to drain potatoes from the large pan - I had to use 2 hands whereas before I only needed one. Could be a problem for more elderly people?
My main gripe is that the frying pan is very small, its OK for frying 2 eggs but nothing else. You will need a bigger pan to use alongside this set. Also the milk pan is very shallow. I can't see it being much use for anything apart from heating milk up and funnily enough thats what I use my microwave for! I really don't think you could even cook peas in it as any boiling water would soon be splashing over the top. It could have done with being a bit deeper. The other 3 pans are all good sizes.
Saying that overall I am happy with the set - I'll just keep my old frying pan and maybe another small pan. The heat distribution is very good and they are amazingly easy to clean. Great price on Amazon as well!
Update - just to say I've had these pans for 4 months now and have been putting them in the dishwasher loads. No ill effects from this noticed yet!
