Not bad for a student I guess, but my experience with this set is that you basically replace everything except the cutlery after a couple of months. So a bad investment in the end.

£16 to get everything you need at the one time and it lasts a few months? …£16 to get everything you need at the one time and it lasts a few months? Sounds like an amazing deal to me


Not very environmentally friendly or pocket friendly long term tho
Looks good for a camping set

Maybe they arent including the saucepan lid?
This is advertised as "non-stick coated carbon steel", not Teflon, looks safe at a quick glance, but please double check before buying.

If you're not aware of health issues with bad cookware coating, watch the movie Dark Waters imdb.com/tit…22/ before buying cheap cooking sets. Or if a book works better for you, it's based on Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer’s Twenty-Year Battle Against DuPont goodreads.com/boo…ure
If you are young and healthy. Go for it. A cheap potentially poisonous pan ain't going to upset a student with a the other crap they rightfully are loading into themselves. If your a bit older and have kids and give 2.... Then I suggest you steer clear.
Standard rubbish from Argos at the end of the day, you get what you pay for.

Well, lucky it's not coated in Teflon as that's the subject of your linked movie and book
Secondly it was the chemicals and/or the process used in the creation of Teflon that caused hazardous materials / chemicals to leech into water, that's not to say the completed product is, in itself, hazardous.
People love sticking the boot into argos but we are still using some of our crockery we bought for our first house in 2006. Sure some of it had been and gone or seen better days but can't complain too much given the price.
