No exaggeration: the BESTpans I have ever used,
This review is from: Tefal Ingenio Non-stick Induction Try-Me Cookware Set, 3 Pieces - Black (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are simply terrific! I'm already the proud owner of a massive Tefal frying pan (love that thermo spot) which I adore, but these are even better. The detachable handle idea is great, but not new. Back in the seventies, my Mum had a set of pans with such handles, they were orange and brown and, though the idea was good, the handles were pure pants, they were always coming off, once on the journey from hob to table, when the pan was full of soup. After that particular disaster they were despatched to a charity shop, and I pity the poor unwary cove who bought them. The experience put me off the detachable-handle notion for a long time, but Tefal have persuaded me the idea still has legs. This set is a whole other animal from those old orange pans.
The handle feels STRONG, the attachment feels stable; they're not going to give in a hurry. Taking pans from hob to oven and back again, to the table (remember to use a heat pad if you don't want scorched surfaces, they're still hot when they leave the oven), even to the fridge (after cooling, naturally), is so easy, the attachment is simple; it makes cooking, serving and storing a wide variety of dishes so simple. And they cook really well; the heat distribution is great, no burned edges and raw middles.
The build-quality is superb. The non-stick surface makes cooking and cleaning easy. The pans are reassuringly heavy, but not too heavy (not Le Creuset heavy!) just enough to inspire confidence.
I love them. There are other pans in the same range too. I may very well buy them all.
