You may remember back in autumn 2014 I talked about how I was working with Tefal and was putting to good use their Ingenio Pans. Well some month later, I thought it was time to do an update. Its fair to say, they get plenty of use in our kitchen – there has been over 50 foodie posts alone since they arrived, never mind daily wear and tear in the family of 5 kitchen.
I will admit that when Mr C and myself were buying our first house 16 years ago, I didn’t know that much about pans. My mum gave me some advice – good lids, not too heavy, which we took on board. We were very lucky with our purchase considering how little time we devoted to buying our pans.
Fast forward 15 years (and oh my! it has gone sooo fast) and we are a little more clued up. I can’t tell you how many times I muttered about not being able to finish cooking things by putting the pans into the oven – something I never considered in 1999. We also found out pretty quickly that pans are so much better when they can stack neatly – not quite sure why we didn’t think of this when we bought our first house with the smallest kitchen ever! Tefal’s Ingenio Pan collection do both of these – They have 2 really clever detachable handles which make for easy stacking and placing in the oven. You have to be brave the first time you pick up a roasting hot pan with a detachable handle – but you soon become accustomed. The pans pictured are ours – they are showing no signs of wear and tear (and we are not gentle).
I have also been testing out Tefal’s Pasta Drainer Insert – I cannot believe how many times since having children that we cook pasta. I am guilty of taking shortcuts though and leaving pasta soaking too long, then not draining or rinsing properly. Tefal’s Pasta drainer takes the chances of soggy, stuck together pasta away. We also love the Ingenio Draining lid that we have been sent – Just feels so much safer when draining out boiling water (especially as there always seem to be a child that arrives in the kitchen at that particular moment). The lid connects to the middle sized (20cm) pan which in most families, is the one you will use most often.
I’m very excited to be able to offer a complete set of Ingenio Induction Pans worth £250 to giveaway to one lucky reader. This is a 13 piece set containing the following:
- 16cm Saucepan
- 20cm Saucepan
- 22cm Frying Pan (this size comes in so handy!)
- 28cm Frying Pan
- 26cm Sautepan
- 16, 20 & 26cm Glass Lids
- 16 & 20cm Plastic Lids – The pans are great for transferring to the fridge once cooled with the plastic lids. The detachable handle means they take up less room.
- 2 detachable patented handles
These pans are suitable for using on induction hobs, in the oven, transferring to the dining table and storing cool food in the fridge. They also come with a manufacturer’s guarantee for 10 years (including handles) and Lifetime for the non-stick coating.
