    I bought a Jamie Oliver anodised pan last new year. Normally i don’t go for endorsed products but it really is brilliantly slippy – love it.
    One of these

    This has happened so often to ours that I’m sure it’s designed obsolescence. The pan is always fine, the handle is always fine, the connection between the two is a poxy little bolt in an aluminium housing that corrodes away.

    Feeling extravagant?
    Try a Woll. Best, most durable saute/frying pans we have ever used.
    Not cheap though at approx £70.

    Can’t wait to get gas fitted to the house so I can use them again.

    [Edit] Handle is detachable so you can place pan in the oven/under the grill.

    BIL (ex-chef) bought us a set of Analon hand anodised pans as a wedding present back in 2004. They are the best pans I’ve the wife has used, and all still going strong. Not cheap, but would recommend if they are in budget.

    Go for a steel/iron handle ensure its well fitted to the pan part, the steel handle will allow you to put it into the oven,

    I have a Tivoli frying pan which is thick anodized aluminium.
    It is awesome and not too expensive – think it was about £30.
    Very hard wearing – mine takes a battering including lots of dry heating to solar temperatures and cooling under the tap. It also goes in the oven (plastic handle).
    I tend to rinse the fat out and wipe it down with kitchen roll rather than washing it as this helps to maintain ‘seasoning’.
    The bottom gets pretty clarty and the shiny ally is now stained, but it doesn’t seem to affect the speed it heats up.
    It is understated in its appearance – matt black – it’s no show-pony with no polished bits or copper, if that is your thing.

    Anodised ones don’t like being put into the dishwasher.

    I prefer stainless steel.

    no pans like being put in the dishwasher.
    I hate stainless ones – everything sticks to them and they’re a bugger to clean.

    Am i the only one that drilled and reriveted my frying pan

    Its a cheap stainless steel pan from tesco nothing sticks to it when i cook. When the mrs cooks everything sticks for some reason. They say something about workmen and tools dont they ?

    Like the op the handle fell off , factory fit rivets and were never really tight.

    Now the handles solid , perfect for walloping over a burglers head.

    Only thing ill change it for is a cast pan 🙂

    Heavy bugger though.

    a good workman can get the job done even with a badly chosen tool?

    Actually use the georgeforeman flat plate

    I rest my case 🙂

    No one going for ceramic coated pans? Have one and it’s pretty good.

    You need a cast iron pan. If you fancy enamelled, you can go Le Cruset or Chasseur, but I got a TK Maxx knockoff. Will last a life time and no non-stick nonsense to flake off. Season it and wash it as per instructions and it is non-stick anyway.

    You need a cast iron pan.

    if you’re happy with glacial timescales for changing the temperature of your pan, replacing them when they crack, maintenance (?!) and needing two hands to move the damn things.

    pans, especially frying pans, literally come down to taste!

    Stella stainless, so far lasted 20yrs and still look almost new. Got a chapatti iron to do pankakes and stuff (’cause i’m niche innit).

    We got a set off circulon (Infinity, I think) pans and they are excellent.
    Couldn’t quite stomach the cost of the frying pan too though so went for a John Lewis own brand pan that is pretty good; perhaps a bit thin, but very non stick and survived 2.5 yrs with no bother so far. Still seems like new. Would get the Circulon one if I could justify it, but seems ott for occasionally frying eggs in!

    Just searched for “Risoli frying pan” and STW comes up third with a “What frying pan?” thread from 2011.

    Tsk, Tsk, you should use stainless steel bombers for that…..

    HELP! I’m stuck in an STW vortex….
    well, at least I’m consistent, and the pan is two years older than then and still looks like new (apart from the stained bottom)
