I previously posted the 5 pan deal but thought this was also a great deal to post as a separate post. Pans include 16cm, 18cm, 20cm with lids.

Best pans around by far!!
Bought a full set. Wasn’t hopeful given how cheap they were. Actually, great pans. They pass the porridge and the scrambled egg test with flying colours.
Thanks, reserved for collection and my local Argos, heat added
Thanks. Nearly bought a set of pans from Amazon last night but decided to hold off until today because they wouldn't have arrived any sooner and thought I'd look some more.
Glad I did, this deal is about half the price and I've got the casserole version of these already and it's an excellent pot. Very easy to clean.
I bought these last week in Dunelm for £32 & I thought that was good fire
given good reviews just reserved the 26cm sautee pan for £13.32 thanks OP instead of pulling the trigger on a 60 quid Circulon that has been in my basket a while

Edit - always forget to check if suitable for induction and it is

Brought a Scoville grill pan from George at Asda a couple of months ago for £9 - must say fantastic! Just ordered a frying pan from George online for £9 also!

Further to my post above, they are going back tomorrow. They are garbage on my induction, the first so-called induction compatible pan I've had a problem with. Two of the three simply won't heat at all and the third just barely boils water on the maximum setting. As soon as I transferred the water into the cheapest pot I've got and on the same setting, it started boiling like crazy.

Very disappointed to find out they turned out so crap.

That's a shame...I've collected it already. It also feels a good solid pan.

Thanks for the heads up...it would have probably stayed in the cupboard until needed if not for your post...will give it a try

I'd be interested to learn of your experience too. I've just initiated a return for a Salter set delivered by Amazon today. No puns intended, but there seems to be some element of pot luck, some induction hob owners reprt they are no good, others have no problem. I couldn't get the smallest of these Salters to heat at all but the medium one would-but not efficiently and only on the largest ring area. The largest I just didn't bother trying. I bought a three pan set, not a pair, and I expect the highest setting to be ferocious.

Both sets have dimpling on their base, though, and I'm sure that's the issue. I've got a set of Le Creuset cast iron with completely flat bottoms and they perform as well as you'd expect - but they're damn heavy!

Ultimately, both Scoville asnd Salter are marketing pots as induction compatible which they must know, one would assume, are simply not compatible with all induction hobs and that it is the design that makes them so poor.

So your message made me do a test...I have a 26cm Jamie Oliver sautee pan which is great but none stick is starting to wear a little. This 26cm pan was supposed to replece.

I put a litre of cold water in each pan and put it on full blast.
The Scoville kept switching the ring off as if no pan on the hob - totally cold. The instructions state that if the heating area is not big enough then the pan may not be detected.

I decided to switch sides - as I have a custom heating strip at the left had side of the hob. This time the water did heat up in the Scoville - quite well though to get to aggressively boiling took about 1min 30 secs longer than the Jamie Oliver.

I have one other experience that I think is relevant - I had a small egg pan which was ok but didnt heat nearly as well as my other frying pans - the coating on the base starting coming away after less than 12 months and then it wouldnt heat at all.

My theory is that decent induction pans are made from Induction compatible material - these Scoville pans are aluminum and probably coated to make them induction.

Thanks again for the heads us - I think it is going back despite it working ok ish on the big side as it is hassle to only work on one paricular ring of the hob and I suspect the coating issue will arise.
