    Following on from the porridge thread. And after this mornings porridge, I must tell you about the great saucepans Siân bought home from Tescos last month. The lid handle folds and the handle is detachable, which means you can have a full set of saucepans and lids taking up less than the space of just one regular pan. Light and non stick too. Perfect for the motorhome. Not normally my department, but a hearty thumbs up (y)

    Now you sparked my interest, I cannot find anything like you describe on the Tesco website. Search strings like Pans, Pan set, only come up with a budget 3 pan set (Currently unavailable):(

    We’ve had an older version of these tefal non stick pans in bottle green , for years. From our caravanning days. We still use them in Pug.
    In fact we saw the pans above in Tesco when in Hull waiting to get the ferry to Brugge a couple of weeks ago. They had them out on display. Good quality.

    Ready and delish with maybe a dash of milk on top. (y)

    Sit down Mr Brown and relax, we'll just have a little chat.

    Now, have you noticed any other odd symptoms lately ? Perhaps you are finding that those fluffy slippers, that have languished in the wardrobe for years, suddenly very comfortable.

    Are you finding a liking for cocoa in a mug more enjoyable then smoked ?

    Do you find that you go to bed a lot earlier than you used to ?

    Is Mrs Brown smiling as much as she used to ?

    Take you time and think about your answers and, by the way, what is your opinion on a pipe ?

    Excellent! Wife bought a set 5 years ago in Auchan, they were doing a loyalty stamp offer on them and she got them lass than half price. Excellent still going strong and non stick coating as good as new. French made I think. To stop movement wearing the nonstick surface put them with the rubber lids in the base of the larger sized one before you stack them. There is also a wok in the series that fits into the stack.

    You absolutely cannot make porridge without salt, it's the law.

    We have them too and love them. They seem to be a bit cheaper in French supermarkets. We bought the set with two frying pans snd three pots. They can also go in the oven which can be useful.

    Thanks @Jim , I'd better not gift wrap them else I might get a thick ear. I bought a second handle too.

    Sorry I've looked at this thread

    Brought loads of cooking sauces our favourite custards thought we'd ticked all the boxes

    Now all I can think of is Quaker porridge oats
    Can you buy them in Spain?

    Absolutely a dash of salt. However, I've been advised not to put salt in anything (HBP) and it's taken me nearly 5 years to accept it but I have but doesn't taste as good.
    I now use Pink Himalayan Salt. Better than the chemical type and a lot saltier so using lots less.
    Bugger the HPB, back to putting salt in.
