Very disappointed with the quality of the handles

The pans are great, but the handles are not fit for purpose and they don't honor the 10 year guarantee, we have been accused of using it in an oven, Cleaning in a dishwasher, or submerging in water, Use for lifting a load greater than 10 kg, Damage caused from being dropped, Use with a pan of a brand other than Tefal, putting it on a naked flame (with an induction hob, come on!). We have looked after the handles and non of the above apply but they are not prepared to replace them, therefore I would think very carefully before purchasing these pans because the handles provided are not fit for purpose and they really need to look to upgrade the materials used in making them. Show details

Handle fragile, but CAN be unjammed

As others write, the pans are great, but the handle is not, and gets annoyingly jammed, even if you never immerse it in water.
To unjam it:
Push the little pin through to seperate the handle, see photo.
Get the mechanism moving.
Lubricate. I used Inox.
Reassemble handle.
I am not sure if the handle will be fully operational again, but at least it got unjammed…..

The lid handles are too fragile and no parts available

The pots and pans are fine. And the design concept is a great space saver. But the folding lid handles are too fragile and Tefal just email you a list of electrical appliance service centres that have no interest in lid handles.
I take particular care of the non-stick surfaces but now one lid can’t be used.
The lack of interest in support is pretty annoying! Show details

Tefal Ingenio pan

Purchased the Tefal Ingenio pots and pans set in September 2020 and within five months the larger pan is useless and unusable. The food sticks on the non stick pan and we cant use it anymore. We have always hand washed these products as they were expensive. We asked Tefal to replace it and they refused and said the warranty doesn't cover this . The rest of the pots and pans are great and the handle coming off is good but we can't use one of the pans so very disappointing. The customer service was terrible. Show details

Quality Pans

These are quality pans with a superb non stick surface and heavy gauge bottom. Far superior to the basic ingenio range (which are still great cooking pans). Easy to clean and stow. I find nothing marks the surface and dishwasher brings them up spotless, despite what has been cooked in them.

Makes cooking easy!

I knew Tegal to be an excellent brand with a good reputation, and I would like to endorse this. The pots and pans are the best I’ve ever used! They heat quickly, (induction), and are super easy to clean. They are not heavy to lift, and stack away easily in a drawer, saving space. Show details

Excellent quality for cost

Looking for an excellent quality yet space saving solution for home or caravan? Look no further than Tfal Ingenia. They look great, heat evenly and save space by stacking and by their versatility-- they can be used in the oven, the BBC, as well as on stove top, induction etc.

Simply brilliant. Show details

Best kitchen gadget

I’ve heard of Tefal since I was a child and saw mom used it and had a clear idea how is Tefal, but this 13piece Ingenio steel induction set left all Tefal products behind. What a great invention for every kitchen so people with small kitchen space will no more complain.

It’s very easy to use and clean just 1 click and handle attached or off. 1 pan can be use in or out of oven.

Love the way it can be store without any mess in cabinet and room for other stuff as well.

Cooks perfect without any food burn.

Very light and stylish lids such a great quality.

As the pots are non-stick are they hard to clean? Understand that sometimes you may need to soak before cleaning. Have used the Tefal Ingenio Performance non-stick induction pots in the past, unfortunately we accidentally scrapped the pots (even though we used the proper tools) and so everything then stuck to the pots when used. Pans were great. Now looking at the Tefal Ingenio Stainless Steel. Appreciate any feedback. Thank you.

They are really easy to clean as the black non-stick coating makes it totally non-stick, and everything wipes clean with just hot soapy water and a brush or cloth.

We only have an induction stove, so don’t know about gas stoves. Perhaps contact Tefal?

Yes. This set is popular with campers.

Another reviewer suggests that the handles are not suitable to use on a gas stove.
