Our test includes 20cm saucepans, all suitable for induction cooktops.
We tested how long each pot took to boil one litre of water, how comfortable they are to hold and pour from without dripping, how hot the handles and lid knobs became during cooking, and how easy they were to clean.
Overall score breakdown
We cook scrambled eggs (70% of the performance score) to assess the pot’s evenness and stickability and we time how long it takes to heat 1L of water (30% of the performance score).
Ease of use (30%)
We consider the balance of the pot, how comfortable the handle is, steam control, how easy it is to pour from, and how easy it is to clean.
