This pan not only looks great but is very practical. It is a lot cheaper than other pans on the market and it was good looking too. I was expecting to be disappointed once I started to us it but it is a brilliant size - not too wide and nice and deep. No danger of anything bubbling over. We made 3 lots of jam in it as soon as it arrived and the jam was quick to reach setting point, the pan was stable on the gas ring and very easy to clean. Absolutely delighted with it.
