OK, now I hadn't heard of them either but apparently they're quite good. I normally take any TK Maxx / Homesense RRP with a pinch of salt but when I saw it was Dupont Autograph 2 non-stick coating for £12.99 I thought this has got to be a bargain!
They had a full range of pans (just in?) some with lids as well as griddle pans and not one of them was more than £20. The 9 inch saute has an RRP of over a ton so I will be back down tomorrow morning to pick one of those up! Oh, it was the one in Northampton but I would be very surprised if tese weren't available elsewhere as they had them on a display.
I bought a 8" traditional deep fry pan for £12.99 and they still had a few of them left. it's a might fine piece of equipment with triple-layer non-stick and a flat base.
Here's some stuff off the website...
