We last tested frying pans in 2016. There are no updates planned.
There are better induction frying pans than this. It is only OK at heating evenly, has poor durability and its handle may get dangerously hot.
Overall score includes:
Evenness of cooking (50%)
Surface durability (25%)
Ease of use (25%)
Price is based on a November 2016 survey.
Up to 210°C
Yes (but hand washing recommended)
Manufacturer claims metal utensils can be used but this isn’t advisable given the pan’s poor durability.
Interested to see this rated so low as the JO wok pan I use is fantastic. I agree with the poor durability and uneven cooling surface on the fry pan version though. For some reason it's raised in the centre so food gets hotter there and liquid drains to the edges.
I have to say that the JO wok is my favourite cooking container though, so versatile and even using it pretty much daily it lasts for a good few years before it needs replacing due the perishing of the nonstick surface.
Cool handle (even in the oven) and wide high cooking surface so handles frying through to casseroles.
I wouldn't by the fry pan again but bought the wok for my daughter as a first flat warming present and she says the flat mates- one, a professional cook- use it most of the time too.
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
