I've used several of these particular pans, as a result of which I immediately bought several to give away, and several to keep. They're that good. Not cheap
, but very good value. (They're not intended for the late nite TV crowd, or for fly-by-night sale
at county fairs)
The non-stick is the real deal, similar quality to, say, Tefal brand, and they even work on induction (purpose-built stainless base).
The material is really heavy (base and walls) and the heat is consequently very even.
Round frypans make no sense to me, in a compact galley
. Round plates, too, for that matter.
Given thirty seconds, I reckon I could even concoct a case for square mugs... (when you wedge a bunch of them into a corner to fill'em up with hot water
in rough weather
, any which misses one mug will make it into one of the others... how's that for an extemporised rationale?)
Incidentally the frypans do NOT have removable handles. However the larger baking pan does, which of course it needs to... I didn't know about the pans, or the optional lids for the frypans, so I'll be making a couple more purchases. Thanks for bringing this up.
(PS: On their website, I see they can't spell gauge (guage schmuage!) but at least they can spell aluminium ;-)
No wonder nobody in the US will touch them....)
