I bought two sets - one 13 piece and one 8 piece (I think) about two years ago for use on our new induction hob. The removable handles, glass lids and plastic lids (cool storage only} are excellent as is the stack ability. The plain non-stick surfaces on the floor of the smaller pans has deteriorated and these pans are now only good for boiling, hopeless for sauces and the like. Nevertheless they still get plenty of use. Conversely the larger saucepans and the fry pans, which have a patterned non-stick coating are still looking and working like new. All the pans have retained their induction hob capabilities, have not warped at all and continue to heat quickly and evenly. Despite the flaw in the smaller pans I recommend Ingenio, especially when bought as a set at a cost saving.
I am confident enough of Tefal that I have just purchased an Experience fry pan. I'll review the new pan when it has had a bit more use; so far so good!
Nonstick Wok/ Oven Dish Excellent Use
The non-stick large non-heavy saucepan is excellent as a stir fry wok and used together with the glass lid for fast stir fry cooking in moisture and butter without burnt black spots on vegetables or stir fry beef, and then used as an oven dish to grill cheese on top of the stir fried vegetables and beef with no handles sticking out because I bought a small oven Sunbeam Pizza Bake and Grill Oven 19L BT5350 some months ago from the same retailer. The tough-built handle is like using oven gloves but without sliding your hands inside all that thick cotton that seem thick but not thick enough to take all that heat, so no more oven gloves. The white plastic storage lids are not heat-proof and must not sit on the oven near a hot element if you decide to leave the saucepan on the oven to cool down, instead of removing the saucepan from the oven and leave it in on the bench - before you cook another pot on the oven.
