Performance without weight.

Postby 88V8 » August 21st, 2019, 9:21 am

Lucky me, OH enjoys cooking.

But she struggles with some of the heavy pans that work with our induction hob.
Circulon. Quality, but heavy.

In particular the large frying pan.

Can anyone recommend a brand that gives good performance on an induction hob, but without the weight?

For frying pans, black iron is unbeatable, I have had mine for 20 years and they still cook perfectly. This example from Nisbets looks good to me.

For regular cooking pans, we had this discussion before, you get what you pay for and for me and others on this board, that is Mauviel 5 ply. Will cost an arm and a leg but they are super efficient, dishwasher safe, pour like a dream, the handles stay cool and are easy to use.

Indeed we did. I second the Mauviel recommendation. On the black iron, consider also these guys - https://www.netherton-foundry.co.uk ; when I was looking they seemed to be making lighter pans. This - https://www.netherton-foundry.co.uk/iro ... ns/nfs-117 weighs in at 1.14kg , whereas the same size De Buyer ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Buyer-Mineral- ... B00462QP0W ) is listed at 1.9kg.

Thankyou.
We have Circulon pans atm https://circulon.uk.com/cookware.html which work well, but they are heavy.
The 10" frying pan, if that is what it is - 2" high - weighs about 4lb.

I'll look at these other options. Yes, I recall that earlier thread now you remind me.
