Good points

  • Very fast boiling time.
  • OK to use.
  • Balanced if held by both sides of the pan (but unbalanced if held with one hand).
  • Pouring is easy (lip around top of saucepan means less chance of dripping).
  • Has support handle if two hands needed to pour.
  • Has measurement grading in the pan.
  • Oven safe.

But

  • Support handles have no non-slip grips.
  • Steam escapes from around the lid and can rattle it.
  • Stainless-steel lid may become dangerously hot.

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.
