Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As always with Tefal I find the heat spot a pointless gimmick.
It is very easy to fix the handle on and off of the pans and I've had them in and out of the oven and onto the hob. Convenient and flexible this!
I find this feature particularly useful as I often make homemade pizza in a frying pan. Jamie Oliver and others will tell you a domestic oven is not that great for making pizza as its difficult to get it hot enough. The solution can be to put the pizza on a high heat on the hob to cook the underside then pop it under the grill to blast the top. These pans are ideal for that. As you remove the handle there is no chance of damaging it in the grill.
I've also fried eggs, flipped omelettes, made pancakes and oven baked tomatoes with great success.
Non-stick coating looks good but only time will tell! You certainly don't need much oil. The handle does clamp on with a bit of fierce looking metal so it might not do the coating any favours over time.
Only quibble is a lid would have been nice, but this set is part of a wider range so you can fix that if you really want to.
