    hi there all,
    silly question I guess, but having looked around I don't seem to be able to find a nice set of pans, good non stick but ideally sit inside each other and handles detatch etc to keep it all nice and compact.

    Anyone got good suggestions? I do like good non stick as hate scrubbing pans :)

    Thanks in advance

    Darren

    TEFAL have a non-stick range that all fit inside each other and the handles swivel round to make a compact fit - the best (I'm told).

    I dont know what u want these pans for but we have a steamer from Instore (ive seen them in other places too) you can boil your spuds in the bottom ans the next two tiers
    can be used for veggies etc they dont have long handles small c shaped handles
    so they only use one ring on the hob and they dont take up much room to store away

    We have the Tefal Compact pans and can recommend them from a few uses. A bit pricey but good quality so hopefully they'll last as long as the van.

    Argos used to sell a 3 pan set, we got ours from Debenhams when they had 20% off in one of their sales.

    Hope that helps.

    Tefal "Ingenio" are excellent and have a good range of pans.

    Have a look here [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbTf2Yk1qJw]YouTube - Tefal Ingenio Pot & Pan Range[/ame] in French but I'm sure you will get the gist of it.

    If you are going to France you can get them in all the major supermarkets. Not cheap but good quality and not too heavy. More info on Tefal website Ingenio 4 - Non-Stick Cookware - Tefal.Com -

    Happy shopping.

    We bought a Double Skillet at Newark Show last year. Handles detach and all packs away into the box very neatly except for the glass lid - made a bag out of bubble warp to protect that.

    Not cheap but very versatile and meets most of our needs - bought a cheap small pan from Tesco for the odd occasion when we need more.

    many thanks

    wow, many thanks for all the replies, great replies to, the steamer is a great idea, but of course cant really steam everything, so the tefal pans and a steamer seem the way to go :)

    is there someway on this forum to have it email me when I receive a reply to a message :-( couldnt see it in my cp.

    thanks again
