Good points

  • Fast boiling time.
  • OK to use.
  • Easy to clean non-stick surface.
  • Balanced (so there’s less pressure on your wrist when lifting).
  • Has support handle if two hands needed to pour.
  • Suitable for metal utensils.
  • Claims to be PFOA-free.
  • Can be used under a grill.
  • Oven safe.

But

  • Very heavy.
  • Steam escapes from around the lid and condensation builds up on the handle.
  • Uncomfortable handle with no non-slip grip.
  • Rim has a flat edge so load may drip on the bench when pouring.
  • Glass lid can accumulate grime and be difficult to clean.

How we test

Balance and weight (25%)

We also tested how long each saucepan took to boil one litre of water, how hot the handles and lid knobs became during cooking, and how easy they were to clean.
