Kids these days don’t know how good they’ve got it. We used to just burn a corner and sprinkle it in
All Saucepan & Pots Discounts, Offers and Sale - July 2020
Amazon sends out invitations to the best reviewers. It is not something you can apply for.
Vine.. I wish! How did that happen?
I like the tech on it which I haven't seen on things like this and at this price point
Yeah I think this being most expensive in range at £314, which is a lot for a countertop appliance in reality for what it is, so you are probably right this model didn’t sell like others.
I think they are trying to get rid of stock, was on the tefal site the other day, and this item popped up with £150 off their online store price.
Thank you @feizor, voted hot for the price.
Thanks a lot, not confusing at all. I do have some bare cast iron pans and I am happy with them. Was thinking to go with coated ones for a change, but as I mentioned, I felt they may be a bit sticky. Many thanks!
Both the Argos one and this Amazon one are enamel coated. Pros and cons of enamel coated vs bare cast iron are well documented, a quick google will reveal. Generally bare cast iron will last longer as enamel coating may chip and crack over time, especially on the cheaper skillets and dutch ovens. Bare cast iron will require careful seasoning when new to avoid rust and cannot be washed using soapy water. Seasoned bare cast iron will be almost non-stick, just takes a bit of work and a lot of use to get there. Enamel coated cast iron will always be more sticky than properly seasoned bare cast iron. If you have to plan on cooking tomato based dishes a lot then I suggest going for enamel coated as bare cast iron will leech a little bit into really acidic foods and it will also strip the seasoning. Hope that helps (but likely made things more confusing).
Yep, I was replying to suniil who was asking about the below ikea dutch oven. https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/vardagen-casserole-with-lid-cast-iron-00437271/ The Villeroy & Boch one in the OP is indeed enamel coated. And good point about the rim, that exposed edge does needs a bit of oil to protect it from rusting.

Wipe it well with a clean cloth and leave to air dry before storing. • After using the cookware or before storing, we suggest that you apply a small amount of cooking oil on the interior and the rim of the pan. This can help maintain the cookware. • The cookware is made of enamelled cast iron, it is a normal phenomenon to see rusting on the rim and along the side of the vessel. We recommend applying a small amount of cooking oil in your cookware and rub it for 2-3 times to remove the rust.
These are good enough quality, but don't kid yourself they're the same quality as Le Creuset. After ~18 months of normal use, the enamel coating bubbled in a particular spot. Eventually the bubble burst and a flake of the coating caught fire in the gas flame and floated on to our kitchen floor. Not a big deal and we got a replacement under warranty. Perhaps a one off, but hasn't happened with our two Le Creuset items.
From the Review it seems good enough
Are the Argos good enough? Le Creuset is way out of my budget.
I got a very good red one from Waitrose for £25 which was a decent price.
Nah, was 'Millenniums' last time! (lol) :p
Bagged one... Looks like our others in our le creuset volcanic range... Fraction of the price though.. Will see how well it holds up 😬
Collected this afternoon. Nice and heavy! Seen live and not from the photos, I understand that big families probably will need the 5 lt slightly bigger version, this 3,3 lt is big enough for medium-small jobs. Happy about it, can't wait to use it!
Millenials agghhhhh (devil)
Thats two words
OMG me too!
Thought it was a sofa!
Measuring your jog, jogging your measures - not bad either which ways, eh ;)
Just what I always wanted - a measuring jog
I use them on daily basis Very handy I love them
I have this set, Love them, because they're thin they're great for my halogen hob, rather then the scoville ones i have which take ages to heat up (y)
Just ordered thankyou , I will just see how they are , but for that price I thought it was a brilliant price
Good luck with delivery, ordered few things it'll take a month ;(
I absolutely agree with this, anything without liquid will burn and stick. I had them when they were around £7. Within few days almost all handles burnt down near the pan due to being on medium/high heat. Had it when I had new house and couldn't afford buying good one at that time. Not only this but I had quite few pairs of nonstick from ikea as well. I regret wasting my money and creating landfill by throwing these sets.
That's right, read the warranty conditions ;) that made me laugh initially but when I thought about it, it makes sense. One of my friends regularly puts a pan on the hob and forgets about it. Only to return to a dried out pot with contents inedible. He's got a memory like a fish and really shouldn't be allowed near sharp objects or naked flames :)
Don't heat them up too much!?!? (confused)
I have the full set of these and found that they are (as has been said previously) useless on an electric hob. Fortunately i have a gas hob at home & use them there without problems. Have had them around two years and have not had any issues. I don`t use scouring pads when washing them and don`t wash them in the dishwasher (hand wash only). So if you want pots to use on an electric hob i`d recommend you look elsewhere. I personally now use tefal pots on the electric hob and these have lasted four years up to now. Hope that helps somone.
I had a drunken episode where i put a pan of soup on and fell asleep. x hours later I came to examine the pan, tipped it over and a perfect black disc fell out. 12 months later and the same Scoville pan's still going strong. Maybe it's a batch thing? Water hardness? (confused)
Good spot, I missed that. Thought it was the 5 pack! We got a 5 pack from Asda about 15 months ago. Have been pretty good. Eggs stick unless you use a little oil. Make sure you let them cool down before washing. Quiet thick so not easy to adjust temperature which is tricky for things like steak but overall, very good value.
Just to let you all know this is no longer at this price and out of stock! I was looking to get another one too! It's so good and perfect for 3-4 people
Yeap wait for another deal to come to you, Tower does a lot of sale all the time and the last Aldi deal was actually delivered.
Good find (y) I can't go to aldi though as in the vulnerable High risk group. Also already have a 6l one needed a smaller one
Yes they are, as I have one myself. 5 Litre from Aldi £19.99.
They are not stainless steel. Avoid aluminium with pressure cookers
Good deal op, you won’t please most on here as though, they simply don’t understand that some people like to buy into a collection, you can buy grills, saucepans, mugs, utensil jars etc all in the same colour. All I can buy some cheap casserole from lidi or sainsbury but you won’t be able to extend the range. Heat from me.
The power of Hotukdeals Phone call to say they will replace as a gesture of goodwill Was it after my post They dont honour lifetime warrenty as it usually fails in first 6 to 12 months was excuse given Handle on saucepan failed they dont hold stock Cerise colour Wont replace with something similar So full set of 12 pieces missing sie 16 saucepan
Yeah, I saw that one but it's part of the Essentials range, so is presumably somehow not as good. This deal is for the Signature version (which I think it just a posh way of saying the normal one). I thought I had better buy the real deal, so my girlfriend is happy!
Just about to post this (angel) .
Cheaper at JLP? https://www.johnlewis.com/le-creuset-essentials-cast-iron-round-casserole-pot-26cm/satin-black/p4209379 Ahh. Seems might be some difference. This one is an exclusive to JLP.
Most likely the "connect" feature to apps and the step by step instructions. It's also ONLY a Pressure Cooker and not a All In One like alot if multicookers/pressure cookers around this price...
Genuine question. Why would you spend so much on this when you can buy a standard hob pressure cooker for about £30? Where is the value added?
This is for the + connect version so is a good deal.
Been there, done that. Never again.
Although I see you're point, this doesn't apply universally. Like anything, it depends how much you care about that particular product. For example, I use a Mac for work as a software developer, so an iPhone has more value for me, since it works together better. However, if I didn't have a Mac, the perceived value would be less. It's the same with this Le Creuset - I don't do much cooking, so I wouldn't buy Le Creuset myself. But it has much more value for someplace who would use it a lot, like my girlfriend.
Pot noodle aficionados voting in force I see... As I said on a similar post a couple of days ago: Nothing more than I expect from this site nowadays. If its not made of sugar, a pot noodle or a hideous tacky ornament it wont get heat.
Ahh OK you're wrong there. You see Apple, Dyson etc. don't represent good value. Their prices are inflated because a minority of people perceive them to be so, because of marketing. The majority of people know this and thus vote cold. (y) Typical example. "The incredible new iPhone 13, only £45 a month for 36 Months.." Not good. (flirt)
I feel the voting system should be how much everyone else agrees with said subjective values. Rather than, 'its 70% off', therefore hot, but since there are no rules to hot or cold votes per day its hard to control. Comments imo should be confirm hotness of deal or suggest counter product which maybe better, and others question the truth to it (like above).
Not a bad idea. Thanks.
I use mine with a WiFi controlled switch. Pulsing on and off every 15 mins or so
I want one that switches itself to low after a period of time.
You can get a morrisons own brand with an extra years guarantee for 99p less should you not be bothered about brands
This is expensive
"Busy guys and gals rejoice!" - YUK!
Morrisons have their own brand for £17 which includes a 3 year guarantee
Mines exactly the same.
Those non stick pans need to be used very carefully. Apart from can’t use metal utensils, you can’t use those to cook anything with bones in. Even one, yes one, fish bone will damage the surface :(
I bought pans from this range thinking they would last me for life... I was wrong! One of the pans weirdly ended up with a flat edge (hadn’t) been dropped, returned to the store as was within 12 months and was replaced ‘as good will’ since then I have dropped the frying pan and the same thing has happened. I don’t expect this from such expensive pans. I will not buy from this company again!
I see! I don’t have it anymore, but I remember when I first got mine there was a care “manual” in the box, and it definitely mentioned conditioning them with oil after use . This was many years ago so that advice may have changed, but it hasn’t done them any harm- quite the opposite. Anyway, sorry to hear you’ve had nothing but trouble with them!
According to Circulon professional non stick care instructions online it says nothing about having to oil after each wash. I’ve heard you do that for steel woks but not non stick. In fact it says oil is not needed and may cause it to burn and bond to the surface affecting the non stick qualities
If you subscribe to their newsletter you get 10% off which I have applied when ordering. Thanks OP.
More fool you for using a metal spoon. You know car paint scratches when you try to clean it with a wire brush too right? Tefal is excellent kit and it’ll last you for years if you bother to look after it.
Only a heathen would cook with metal on metal, wood or silicone only in any pot or pan unless you like the taste of metal.
Asian guests are different. They help themselves to everything (lol) "Su casa, mi casa" They want to help cook clean the dishes and so on. If you object they get offended. They clean dishes and lift the strainer and let all rubbish down teh sink drain.
I remember seeing a toxicologist saying that you needn't worry about tiny flakes of nonstick passing through your 'system', is very non-reactive (it needs to be to be nonstick). However, you should be wary of what happens to it when it burns (ie an empty pan on a high heat). The smoke could easily be absorbed by your lungs, and then it's actually in your system. Also it kills bird immediately, and is pretty nasty to fish, too.
Usual price on Amazon
All hobs compatible including induction.
I think so
Can they be used for gas hobb or only induction?
wondering if this one is https://www.argos.co.uk/product/5437434 different.........looks same?
Thx for posting.
