We tried out a frying pan from the range and it handled our culinary efforts with ease, from pancakes and omelettes to stir fries and pasta sauces.
The is suitable for all hobs, including induction, and is oven-safe up to 150°C. It is dishwasher safe, and comes with a five-year guarantee.
The Eco range is also free from palm oil, nickel and heavy metals. It also contains no perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) – a chemical often used in the manufacture of nonstick pans that may potentially cause health problems, for example if it is allowed to contaminate water supplies.

The scratchproof surface is quick and effortless to clean, and cooked food glides easily from the pan. The performance of the nonstick surface is so effective that very little fat is needed – making it easier to prepare healthy, low-fat meals.
The pan looks lovely, with a stylish, soft green granite effect. It's quite light in weight, but still feels strong and sturdy, with a soft-grip, heat-resistant handle that's comfortable to hold.
It has a good depth too – so is just as effective for cooking meals with sauces as it is for a breakfast fry-up.
