Bought 2 IconiX Frying pans second hand on G**tree. Fantastic! Once I learned to heat pan first, then oil, then food I have never had a problem with burnt on food. Easy to clean (soak while you eat).
Only problem: Gas stove often too hot, even on lowest setting! I'll have to get a cooking mat!
Purchased in March 2018 at Gumtree.
Great Stainless Steel Appliances
I bought the 3-tiered steamer and pot not long ago and use them on a weekly basis. The water heats up quite quick and the food doesn’t stick on the bottom. Very easy to clean and comes out great in the dishwasher. Can’t fault it
- Verified purchase
would give 5 stars if they were cheaper
So I have transitioned from having non stick pans to stainless steel products whenever I can.
What i love from iconiX:
They are made to last forever.
I have the wok and the biggest pan.
U get to use stainless steel spoon, spatula etc to cook coz it won't scratch the pan (unlike non stick pans).
U can use steel + jif to clear the stain, scrub it over n over again, and you will get a 'brand new pan' afterwards- everytime!
The handles don't get hot even if the pans are piping hot.
It needs alot of heat, with the big pan and big wok you must set the fire on max to get a proper stir fried style. ...
I love this cookware.
Upgraded my scanpan to the stainless steel iconix range. OMG. These look great and feel great. It has required a change in cooking style. Firstly heat your pan first and then add the right type of oil (high temperature resistant), heat this as well and then add the food. ALSO you don't need the highest temperature. I am often finding myself on the lower end of the heat scale with my gas burners. Also for cleaning add water to the hot pan and hey presto with the steelo its as good as new. I love that I can use a steelo and steel slotted flipper....We looked at cast iron, ceramic but ended up with stainless steel (18/10 minimum) because it is safe, tough and lighter to handle. Also did I say that the iconix is the best looking cookware I have ever owned.........
I would never buy this again - 0 out of 10. Don't waste your money.
This product is poorly designed. None of the lids are interchangeable so only one lid fits on one and only one pan. The pans are are not stackable so they take up a huge amount of space in the kitchen. I regret purchasing this set of pans so much that after having them for a few months I decided to get online and let people know that they are a waste of money and kitchen space. Look for something else that has lids that can fit on more than one pan and the pots can be stacked. If you loose a lid you will have to throw the pan away or try to replace the exact lid.
This is just a follow up on my previous review http://www.productreview.com.au/r/baccarat-bio/1198727.html .
I just wanted to write and say the replacement saucepans (of my choice) are fantastic.
It was somewhat of a 'process' getting them but I could not be happier. I have used just about all the pieces from the 10 piece set and can not say anything negative.
These saucepans are Impact Bonded with a 5mm aluminum base, giving you an excellent heat dispersion. Really good but have a read for yourself http://www.meyer.hk/modules/content/item.php?itemid=21
When investing in a good set of saucepans, research, research and do more research and make sure you keep all your receipts for all purchased ... just in case.
Questions & Answers
We have just purchased a range of pans and our food is sticking to the bottom. We are trying to learn how to cook at the best with these pans as we know that these are good. Can you use stainless steel utensils on these pans? On the instructions it advises you not to.
I have 2 iconiX frying pans . I heat the pan then the oil. Then the food (lower heat due to excellent conductivity of heat through base). After dishing out food, cover cooking area with water. Any food stuck to pan then comes off in wash (after the meal). I use stainless steel pad if food stuck or oil scorched on. I also use SS utensils without any apparent damage.
My fry pan is brand new and everything is sticking quite badly
1 heat the pan before adding oil or food - about a minute
2 add oil, allow to heat
3 add food, start the cooking process
4 turn heat down a bi - the base spreads heat so well you don't need it quite as hot
5 after turning cooked food out , cover cooking area with water and set aside. wash as per normal with other dishes
6 if you have to scrub, use a stainless steel pad
