The ultimate tool in everyday cooking, the Shallow Frying Pan is a versatile essential.
Toughened Non-Stick is a sleek range of versatile pans perfect for everyday use. It has a tough, PFOA-free non-stick surface inside and out, and a special hardened body to create a durable and long-lasting pan that can be used on any heat source. The easy release non-stick interior and exterior surfaces are easy to clean, and are tough enough to withstand use of metal utensils.
Professional-style cast handles are attached with stainless steel rivets for a superior, secure fixing.
Heat resistant glass lids are available separately. They retain moisture and flavour, and allow you to check the food you are cooking without lifting the lid and disturbing the cooking process or temperature.

I went around to review numerous pans and browsed around to see if there are any value for money products to be snatched.
We spotted this at one of local department store and immediately looked up on Amazon, and it turns out Amazon was had £20 off.
The handle is non-plastic so can be used inside oven and this does make it very handy. I think it is a very good buy and will certainly recommend it to my friends.
I'm writing this review based on about a month and a dozen or so uses ... ranging from fried eggs and omelette, to bacon under the grill, and meeting finishing off in the oven.
The pan itself is nice and light, and with a decent length of handle is well balanced for that occasional cheffy flick ... however, that longer handle does mean that it takes up a bit more oven real estate than the old cast iron pan.
As I only ever use wood or silicon utensils I've not had any issues with scratches to date, and as it is such a doddle to clean, it has not troubled the dishwasher either ... just a quick wipe off, left to cool, and rinse and another wipe and it is good to go.
After a dozen or so uses it still looks brand new, so I'm happy with it. The old cast iron pan lasted 20 years, I'm not sure if this will, but it does appear to be solidly built.
On the lid front, we found that the lid from another 24cm frying pan fitted just fine, so that angle is covered ... although to tell the truth, I just tend to use a universal mesh spatter guard.
Good pan, happy with my investment.
Any scratches or overheating make the device emit unsafe carcinogenic chemicals (like ALL non-stick cookware)... this is even though this particular range is PFOA-free (? If I recall correctly). There are still other chemicals used in its construction also that necessitate this careful treatment.
Always set the flame / heat to medium (or lower) ONLY, BEFORE putting the pan on top (don't place it on the burner then turn it on to high heat then down). Give it a little time (with some oil/etc) to heat up a little before adding the food and you'll find that you only need medium heat anyway with this pan to cook even things that you'd otherwise think might require high heat. In so doing, you're also saving energy bills, etc. as an added bonus. In fact, you'll probably find you need only a much lower heat than you would otherwise use for e,g. a stainless steel pan.
I really look after it though, I oil it fairly often with corn oil, and I never start it on high heat or let it smoke.
It is very lightweight compared to other non-stick and oven proof pans.
It distributes the heat really well, it is very hard to burn any kind of food with it, even thinly sliced garlic which burned in a span in my last pan.
I highly recommend it, this is a great pan and will probably last a few years if you take good care of it.

I believe my pan came with a scratch. I only use wooden - plastic utensils in the pan.
Every time I wash the pan, the scratch becomes more visible and bigger.
