Awesome cooking surface - WOW!
We are in the process of a warranty claim with another ‘more expensive brand’ and opted for a Stonehenge 30cm pan to get by with. Very impressed with not only construction and cooking surface but by far the price for that. Thoroughly recommended - we have induction hob and this pan is ideal :-)
Purchased in April 2019 for $40.00.

Very good value for money, just treat it well!
Bought the 26cm version from Woollies for $17.50 after reading the good reviews here.
The pan feels solid, sturdy and well built. The fact that it's doesn't have rivets on the cooking side is a plus for cooking and especially cleaning.
A couple of things to take into account before first using it:
- Wash it with warm water, mild soap and a soft sponge.
- Rinse well and dry it.
- Take a paper towel and a teaspoon of your favourite cooking oil and spread it all over it with the paper (except the silicone handle).
- You'll notice the paper catche...
Awesome frying pans
After disappointing and expensive Scanpan ownership, I stumbled across the Arcosteel Stonehenge by accident and have never looked back - awesome performance for a fraction of the cost. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, I am a little sad that they don’t last forever and sadly end up in landfill - but then again so did my exxy Scanpan, so the Stonehenge is definitely the better option.
Purchased in January 2017.
Best frypan I’ve had
I bought my first stone henge pan over a year ago. It’s still like new, even if I cook something with a sticky sauce and it dries on, the next day I can just put warm water in and it wipes out easily. I’ve not noticed any wearing out of the non stick coating. I had one of those blue pans previously that started off well but then started discoulouring and losing it’s smooth surface but the stone henge hasn’t had that happen.
I saw the bigger one today going for half price so I’ve bought one of them too.

great product for the price...
I bought this Arcosteel non stick frypan on sale at Woolworths, to replace my "flaking" Swiss Diamond non stick frypan. I also previously owned a Scanpan non stick frying pan, which didn't last too well either. First time I have ever bought a frypan in Woolies, and it won't be my last time. So, so happy with my purchase. Works well, easy to clean, no flaking/peeling as yet. At this price, I don't mind if I have to replace it every few years. I will never again spend lots of money on a non stick frypan.

Happy so far...
I purchased the 30cm Stonehenge pan a month ago after reading the reviews.
I too was disgusted that the so called 'better' brand I had bought prior was such poor quality and the 'non stick' was useless after such a short time.
Happy with my Tefal Stonehenge and at $30 will gladly buy another when necessary.
Go To Non Stick Frypan
I have also purchased 'better' frypans over the years. I hate the idea that an item is disposable and there is not a lifetime option, however, until there is one, this 'disposable' frypan is my go to. I look after it, and will keep it 'alive' as long as I can before buying another one to replace it in time.
Good non stick ability and very easy to clean. Lightweight, cool handle (would love a version with a lid, however.)
Value for money, but not everlasting.
Very good non stick frying pan for the money, but the non-stick does wear out, I'm not sure how long I've had mine but it's no good any more, I just wipe it clean after use, and never dishwasher it, so its obviously heat that causes the failure, however I will buy another one based on cost. The date I put in is rubbish I couldn't submit without filling in this field, stupid, so I entered todays date.!!
I bought this frying pan after a very expensive brand became useless when the non stick surface ‘wore out’. I researched frying pans ad nauseam and concluded that I couldn’t find any brand that hadn’t been panned in some way by so many reviewers. Then I saw a review for this Arcosteel Stonehenge frypan. Rave reviews and so inexpensive. Had to give it a try. Nothing sticks, easy to wash and dishwasher safe. The handles don’t get hot and not overly heavy. I was able to use the glass lid from the original frypan. Was so pleased After a few weeks I also bought the wok as well which comes with its own glass lid. So far I’m very impressed.
So cheap. So Good
I don't buy cookware often as the equipment I use is very good long wearing, mostly Swiss Diamond. Not cheap but very good. I needed a smaller pan for in-between sauce and light frying work, and didn't have the coin for the Swiss option. At the super market I always have a look for a bargain and got a 27cm Arcosteele Stonhenge Frypan for $20. I had heard of the brand but thought at that price, if it isn't any good, not such a loss. I've had it for a few weeks and am very happy with the versatility, quality and ease of cleaning. I can highly recommend it especially at this price. I know most are made in china but this is too good to pass up.
Choose this over Essteele Per Vita any day.
I was recently gifted a box of very expensive Essteele Per Vita cookware. For my son's birthday this morning I thought I would start the day with Omelettes and choose the occasion to try out my new fancy fry pan from Essteele. Needless to say that after the second disastrous attempt at Omelettes that stuck, burnt in parts and broke apart, I put the pan to one side and pulled out my trusty Arcosteel Stonehenge pan I bought from Woolies for about $30. The next two Omelettes came up beautifully, lovely colour, didn't burn in parts, didn't break ...up, rose beautifully. This is what I've come to expect from a fry pan so was shocked to discover that not all pans are made equally. I would choose my trusty cheapy :) ANY DAY over the expensive, ineffective cookware I was gifted. I also emailed them to relay my feedback and thought I should spare a moment to just let Arcosteel know how pleased I am that there are such great products, as yours, available at a reasonable price from our local supremarket. Thank you.
Best frypan I have ever owned. Sorry Scanpan!
We have had these frypans for over two years now and they are still going strong. Easy to use, clean and have great heat distribution. I originally got one as an alternative to our massive scanpan frypan and then I went back to get the wok and a couple others. I was doubtful given the cost and the fact it was from Woolworths. But seriously, with a lifetime guarantee this will be the best frypan you had ever owned.
Who needs a scanpan!!!!
I had owned 2 scanpans and one other very expensive fry pan and when I could not stand it any longer took a punt and bought an Arcosteel Stonehenge from the supermarket for $20-00 on sale. I have not looked back. I find the surface far more forgiving than the really expensive ones and will never go back. It has stayed non stick for at least 12 months so far and shows no signs of degrading at all. This is in total contrast to the far more expensive ones. I wash it the same as the others and use it the same and the quality just appears to be far superior
Great price and Excellent quality
Just bought this frypan last week from Woolworths online. It was 50% off so it only cost me about $23. It's very sturdy and feels like good quality even before you use it. It heats up wells and is a perfect depth for making curries or stir frying. It also doesn't burn food and I feel that I don't need to use as much oil when cooking as the surface of the pan evenly heats and cooks food well. Would definitely recommend - especially as Woolworths often have the Arcosteel brand on promotion as well.
This is perfect! Can't live with out it.
My mum bought this frypan for me and I've been using it for over 6 months and it still fryies up like day one. It doesn't burn and the non stick element is still going strong. I thought it was a high end fry pan but I'm surprised at it's quality for it's cost! Best pan I've ever had!

Questions & Answers
Can you use the arcosteel frypan in the oven if you wrap the handle in foil
With exactly what material is the interior coated? 3 layers of non-stick coating is very vague...
There is a tendancy toward 'panic thinking' in relation to non-stick cookware and 'scare marketing' that suggests those with 'planet' or 'green' references are better. Many claims related to risk are for when exposed to extreme conditions - such as temperatures over 260deg which won't occur with normal use. It is important to check the surface for damage and scratches and to avoid using damaged products but essentially to date large scale studies show no scientific risks to human health when using products in good condition and as advised. Stonehenge is noted as PFOA, lead and cadmium free - spray oils are to be avoided - use on elements that fits pan base - not for commercial use. You have the choice to avoid non-stick surfaces in your life if you wish but for what it is worth you are likely to engage in more risk crossing the street or eating processed foods from your supermarket. Any manufacturer can trademark a process (such as 'Shellac' or 'Gel' nail polish) - most people don't need to know the recipe or contents of the coating only that it is suitable and safe for their 'ideal' or set standards.
Does the aluminium leech out whilst cooking?
With the outside coated in silicone and three layers of non-stick on the inside I doubt the aluminium forged inner causes any issues. As long as you use as instructed I don’t think you will have any issues. We stopped using aluminium coffee capsules for coffee due to concerns around exposure so are aware of concerns.
