Tefal's mini chef's pan is ideal for cooking a perfect portion of meat or vegetable for 1 to 2 people. Part of the Ideal range of specialist pans, the Mini Chef's pan has been created to make cooking a small portion of food quick and fuss free.
The mini chefs pan has Tefal's thermospot technology, so lets you know when the pan has reached the optimum cooking temperature. The resist plus coating promises a durable non-stick cooking performance and non-stick exterior for easy cleaning.
The stay cools handles prevent the risk of burning hands, the pans is also oven safe up to 180C.
The Ideal range of fit for purpose pans can be used on all hobs except for induction, and also features a Paella pan and Multi pancake pan.
Tefal owes its origins to Frenchman Marc Gregoire, an engineer and keen fisherman. Monsieur Gregoire wanted the reel on his rod to run more smoothly, and experimented in the 1950s to see if a non-stick coating would work. It did, but it was his wife Collette who made the real breakthrough, suggesting the coating would be more useful in making cookware easier to use and clean. Tefal is a recognisable name in non-stick products and small appliances, operating in more than 120 countries. Tefal remains committed to making household tasks easier and cooking results better, through a constant flow of ideas, technology and innovation. Examples of that cutting-edge innovation can be seen in the ActiFry, and Tefal's Thermospot, which ensures your pans are always the ideal temperature to start cooking.

It probably won't be big enough for a larger family though.
It's Tefal, so you can be relatively confident that it is decent quality. It has the 'hotspot' indication when it's hot enough (though to be honest, I still guess anyway). It also has a 'stay cool handle'.
It's a wok, it's a frying pan, it's a small boiling pan, it's even a small deep frying pan if you want it to be. I can highly praise its versatility and usefulness.
My favourite use for it is when frying an egg (I'm no real cook, but I seem to have a reputation for good eggs of any description).
You will need a suitably sized glass lid to go with it, but you can then just spray a little oil on the bottom of this pan, crack the egg into it and put the lid on while frying. The flat base means that the egg cooks on the bottom, the deep sides means that the egg white just spreads into a pleasant rounded shape (without the need for one of those ring gadgets), and the lid causes moisture droplets to cook the egg properly on top without the need for any basting. Brilliant and easy!
It's not the cheapest of all small pans, but easily the most useful for me.
Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.
It's a bit like a mini wok.
So the pan does what I wanted it to do. It's a cute and useful little item and I've very happy with it.

I bought this in an attempt to size-control my portions. Maybe I'm a greedy bear, but I found that I could not actually fit my stir fry ingredients into this pan. Read morePublished 1 month ago by C. Robson

Perfect size for solo lunches (beans, half carton of soup, scrambled eggs, etc). As a messy cook, I'm not sure there is enough room to stir fry vegetables in it, but it does work... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Pops
