A quality non-stick frypan that you'll love!Unlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
I’ve been using the Tefal Unlimited 28cm Non-stick Frypan for the last several weeks and my first impression upon picking it up was its substantial weight for the size. It’s certainly on the heavier side for a 28cm frypan, weighing in at just over 1.3Kg on my kitchen scales - it certainly looks and feels as though it’s durable and is made to last!
Of it’s ‘green’ credentials, Tefal claims that the pan itself is recyclable, however, that excludes the handle. The non-stick coating itself is also meant to be safe, containing no PFOA, lead or cadm... Read moreium, and is meant to last 6 times longer than Tefal’s “Titanium Standard” non-stick coating – only time will tell about the durability of the coating. For peace of mind, though, the frypan is protected by a 2 year guarantee (excluding scratches or colouring from ageing). The usual warnings about only using wooden or heat-resistant silicone utensils with no sharp edges apply here, as they do for all non-stick coatings. Gentle handwashing with a non-abrasive sponge (no dishwasher cleaning) is the general rule for non-stick coatings as well. The Tefal Unlimited frypan has been designed to work with all types of kitchen hobs, including induction, ceramic, gas, electric and halogen, and is meant to be oven-safe up to 175 degrees Celsius. It also has Tefal’s ubiquitous “Thermo-Signal” heat indicator to indicate the optimal temperature for cooking. In use, the frypan itself takes a little longer to heat up than other non-stick frypans that I have used in the past but, given the more robust construction, that’s no real surprise. It cooks as well as you would expect from Tefal products and the non-stick coating does an effective job in the post-cooking clean-up, leaving no embedded residue after a moderate wipe down. If you watch my video, even burnt milk was easily wiped off the cooking surface. The handle remains cool to the touch when used for stovetop cooking, and its size and shape is comfortable during cooking. Would I recommend the Tefal Unlimited 28cm Non-stick Frypan? Absolutely! For a non-stick frypan, the reassuring heft indicates durability and the exceptional construction only adds to the impression of quality. It is a pleasure to use and the deep sides allow for larger portions and a more diverse range of meals. If the coating is as durable as claimed, then you will be very happy cooking with this frypan for at least several years. Happy cooking!
Great Everyday FrypanUnlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
Tefal Unlimited Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
This is a great frypan for everyday use. The size suits our busy family which varies from 2 - 4 people depending on the day. Love the high sides. The extra depth compared to most 28cm pans makes it easy to cook pastas and curries without it sloping over the sides. The red heat sensor, a feature on other Tefal pans we’ve had, is a good indicator of when it’s hot enough to start cooking. Without the sensor it’s a bit of a guessing game and putting your chicken fillets in can have them stewing rather than coo... Read moreking if the pan isn’t hot enough. Like most non-stick pans, especially when new, this one is very easy to clean. Gunk wipes and rinses off so easily; just hope it lasts a few years because it’s usually cheaper to buy a new pan than to resurface with non-stick coating. We liked that you can also put the pan in the oven, which is great to keep meals warm while waiting for everyone to come to the table. The handle though is only good up to 175 degrees so browning an omelette or frittata is not in the cards. Maybe something to consider for the next generation by Tefal? Overall, great frypan and getting plenty of use in our kitchen.

This review is based on a gas stove top. I do like the idea that there’s a red spot to let you know when the pan is at the right temperature and ready to use, the best part is the heat doesn’t rise up the handle, as I had a very old flat pan iron skillet that would always get very hot but with this pan it does not

Impressed with thisUnlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
Previous to this frypan, I have only ever had cheap cookware, like, “10 pieces for $100” cheap, so this was a step up for me.
Quality of this was apparent as soon as I picked it up. It’s heavy, not in a bad way, but in a “you can tell it is well constructed” way. The handle is very nice and firmly fixed on the pan as well.
I cook a fair bit of meat, and was surprised how well it distributed heat. On my cooktop (which isn’t brilliant) even if the pan wasn’t perfectly over the element, the whole pan heated up nicely and my meats seared nicely.... Read more Two downsides were that the pan seemed to take some time to warm up, but when it was hot, it was hot. Not a major issue, but something that took a moment to get used to. In addition, I liked the idea of the Thermo Signal to let you know when the pan is heated up, but I couldn’t tell the difference in colour when hot vs when cold. Maybe a “two tone” colouring would make this easier. Probably just my eyes, but this didn’t work for me.
A very solid piece of cookwareUnlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
This is clearly a very well built piece of cookware. With a quality chrome-steel handle that is properly riveted to the pan using heavy rivets that would pretty much allow you to use it as a hammer.. yes I'm very impressed with the build quality. So sick of the cheaper pans that come loose at the handle.
It's fairly hefty - not exactly light, but I wasn't surprised by that. Balance is very good, and there's enough handle to use both hands when needed.
The pan itself has good steep-curved corners so it's space efficient on the stove and holds sa
It's wonderful!!!Unlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
Since receiving my frypan I have used it for many different things. I have a gas cooktop which seems to suit it well. I love the red dot which tells me when it's heated up. Being a mature female with small hands I often find good quality frypans are very heavy. This one is a nice weight, not too heavy and not too light and flimsy. The handle stays cool which is always a bonus. To test the frypan I have tried everything that I can think of that would normally stick. Not with this little beauty. Not even melted cheese sticks which is usually the... Read morefirst thing to stick and burn. It's healthy because I haven't had to use oil. Things cook very evenly too. I made beautiful pancakes for weekend breakfast and they cooked perfectly. I love the fact that it is dishwasher proof. I don't buy anything that isn't as I hate washing up and have the convenience of a dishwasher. It actually doesn't need much cleaning so a number of times I just wiped it out. The outside look of the frypan hasn't changed with use or from being in the dishwasher a few times. I cannot fault it, I don't have anything negative at all to say about it. Thank you for the opportunity to test the frypan as part of the ambassador program.

This one stood up to the taskUnlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
Things to note: I received this pan to test and review as part of the ambassador program.
All cooking in images was done on an induction cooktop and gas cooktop. The pan however was transferred the separate gas cooktop for the images because here was other cookware being used and I didn’t want them in the images.
I am only showing images of things that the kids or myself cooked or prepared, not my wife. The review is about the performance of this pan hence why it’s isolated in the images. There is no need to show the final meal where other i... Read moretems were prepared and cooked in separate pans or appliances. Firstly I’m not a great cook so the food in the images is more of an indication of my lack of skill, or a collection of ingredients to test the nonstick properties. I usually do simple meals or bbq. I work long hours 6-7 days per week, so cooking consists of quick basic meals or pre prepared meals that are heated. Otherwise my wife is the MasterChef in the house however the older kids also get involved. Needless to say this is probably the best pan that I have been allowed to use. We have stone cookware, copper cookware, cheap and also somewhat expensive Teflon stuff as well. Everything my wife allows me to use ends up trashed within a few days. Needless to say between myself and the kids, the cookware gets throughly abused and mistreated so we can only use certain approved items that my wife sacrifices to keep her pans in working condition.
Tefal Unlimited Solid Grill Pan Holds Great Heat. Super Easy to Clean!Unlimited Induction Non-Stick Grill Pan 26 x 26cm
The TEFAL Unlimited Grill Pan, 26cm Square model designed for a while range of cooktops including Induction. We’ve been using ours on Gas and Electric and both have performed super well.
First thing I noticed when taking this out of the box was the weight! This thing is built like a tank, heavy weighted and holds heat so well and perfectly grills anything you throw in this thing. It’s been really impressive to cook with. I did notice a longer time to get the heat into the pan, but I’d say thing is a good thing as it’s so solid is hold heat r... Read moreeally well. The Tefal Unlimited Grill Pan made it super simple to get those Cheffy grill lines to impress the family at dinner time. The Titanium Non Stick in the Tefal Unlimited range is incredible! I had no issues with anything sticking but the most impressive was the clean up. The grill pan was basically a wipe clean and no scrubbing needed to bring this up like brand new. Time will tell how well the coating will last but its definitely a bullet proof version when new, have only been using for a month but the coating is holding up really well. All in all the Tefal Unlimited Titanium Non Stick Grill has been awesome so far, we’ve all been really impressed with this one. Nice job Tefal.

A score of 3 out of 5 might be unfair but I’ll risk being in the wrong rather than recommend something which I have been disappointed with regardless of being unable to test the pan on an induction hob similar enough but different from mine.
My Asko Hi1983g has four 3.7KW elements plus a concentric pair putting out 5.5KW. The Tefal pan, which I’m reviewing here, failed to trigger the outer ring of the 5.5KW pair; and was uneven on the 3.7KW elements. By comparison, my same-size Tefal, with large v

Heavy and solid... The perfect beginning to a new grill...Unlimited Induction Non-Stick Grill Pan 26 x 26cm
Having had this new Tefal Grill for over a month now, we are astounded with its quality. Whilst it promotes the induction cooktop, we used ours expressly on a gas hob.
The first thing we noticed was the heavier weight of the grill. When trying to ensure even cooking as well as the ability to beautifully sear a piece of meat, that weight is what's going to hold your heat for longer. Allowing you to avoid a cold grill full of moisture.
Another feature that we noticed was the 'ready' indicator. It seemed to work very well, giving you a good guid... Read moree when the grill is hot enough for you to begin cooking. An added bonus for those who don't grill often and don't want to burn or stew a piece of steak. The handle provides great insulation from the high heat that the grill holds, there wasn't a time when we needed to use a mitt to handle the pan. Now the final test was the clean up. I could literally rinse the grill under hot water and most of the mess just washed away. We then washed the pan using a non scratching scourer brush in the sink with warm soapy water. The solid non-stick finish did not scratch or mark. Given the quality of the non-stick, I would imagine it would wash away clean in the dishwasher also.

Very non stick very usefulUnlimited Induction Non-Stick Crepe Pan 32cm
I didn't even know non stick pans could actually be non stick but this is by far the best non stick pan I've ever used. I threw a lot of challenges including dreaded cheese and eggs but just wiped off! I initially bemoaned the idea of testing a crepe pan as I don't cook crepes and thought very one dimensionally at this. But I soon learnt that the versatility of a crepe pan was far beyond what I could have imagined the heat dissipation is incredible and would recommend to any kitchen looking to lift their pancake or egg game such an easy pan to cook in and clean.
I was testing this on a gas cooktop but imagine it would be a joy to use on induction
Good value pan... just a pity about the handle.Unlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
We have had a few Tefal pans in our kitchen in the past which have performed reasonably (while the non-stick coating held up) so we were interested to see how this Unlimited 28cm frypan would fare.
First and foremost, I was a little disappointed by the plastic/phenolic handle and its grub-screwed fastening to the pan carcass. In my experience, these ALWAYS end up loosening over time and arriving at the point where no amount of careful screw tightening fixes the issue. The "Premium" variant of the Unlimited range appears to sport hollow metal... Read more handles which are riveted to the pan and would offer a more durable solution over time. Definitely a factor worth considering if you use your pans a lot. Unpacking, cleaning and seasoning the Unlimited 28cm before its first use was a cinch, and it wasn't long before some tasty beef burgers were on the go. Space-wise, there was plenty of room for 6 regular sized patties. This first use took place on a ceramic electric cooktop, which is one of my least-favoured cooking surfaces owing to inherent tardiness in its temperature response and lack of precision in the controls. Despite this setback, the base of the Tefal Unlimited 28cm heated and cooked very evenly on a medium heat. I did use oil this time around, as I've found different "non-stick" coatings to perform inconsistently and I wasn't keen on fusing a hapless beef burger to the pan on its maiden voyage. Overall, the pan performed well on ceramic electric without having to crank up the heat. Simple fare such as BBQ sausages also cooked quickly and evenly, no matter where they were placed in the pan. I found 8 sausages would cook together at pretty much exactly the same rate, and this was enough to nearly fill the pan. You might get a 9th or 10th snag in there if you need to. I was also able to test the Tefal Unlimited 28cm pan using an induction hotplate, and this time the unwilling victims were some pork forequarter chops and scotch fillet steak. Space for these was decent, and allows for at least 2 steaks or chops. This time, some oil did prove neccessary, as the steak did stick to the pan a little on a moderate heat. Heat distribution was again very good though, and despite the mild sticking, cleanup was easy. Achieving a lovely pink medium-rare to medium wasn't hard at all. The pork forequarter chops didn't have the same sticking issue as the steak, mostly thanks to their bones propping them up a bit. Response to change from the hotplate was quick as expected, and there were no issues with hesitation or compatibility between the pan and the induction element. Only a moderate heat (anything from 120° to 180°) was required to keep things cooking nicely. Durabilty of this pan has been good so far. No amount of cleaning has damaged the coating or base of the pan. One small gripe is that, as expected, the handle moves ever so slightly on its mount. No amount of adjustment or tightening of the handle grub screw manages to dial this out. I would definitely suggest spending the extra on the Premium versions of this cookware to improve the quality of the handle.
Started with one to try. Going to buy more.Unlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 28cm
We haven't bought a new pan in longer than I'd like to admit, and after using this pan for a few weeks I'm ready to throw out all my old pans and buy a matching set of these.
Our testing of the pan has so far included...
- Poached eggs - The water heated quickly and cooked the eggs evenly. Super easy to clean afterwards.
- Fatty sausages - The end result had a perfectly crisp outer lining - apparently this is how sausages are meant to be... who knew?! Super easy to clean afterwards.
- Pancakes - Evenly cooked and perfectly round. Super easy t
Hotter stovetop cookingUnlimited Induction Non-Stick Grill Pan 26 x 26cm
A solid grill pan for our induction cook top. 2 adults and 2 teenagers have been using it. We’ve mostly done steaks, bacon, sausages, and chicken. There isn’t much difference in how the food turns out compared to our cheap frying pans BUT I really appreciate how much quicker it cooks and I don’t have to spend so long in front of the stove. I thought the size was a bit small at first because we often have 4 massive steaks and can only cook 2 at a time, but it definitely fits 4 reasonable sized portions at once.
The base gets hotter than our ot... Read moreher pans but unfortunately we haven’t been able to achieve a nice crust on both sides of our steaks. The first side chars nicely but when they are flipped there are enough juices to make it soggier. It’s a bit shallow and maybe loses a bit of heat. Not nearly as good as the Weber but if we can’t bbq this is the next best option. The pan heats up quick enough. The red dot signal is something I have forgotten about every time. I think it works but it isn’t noticeable. Clean up is easy, after it’s cooled, with just a soft sponge. When things got burnt on it only took a minute to wash off. Storage is a challenge. The kids keep stacking it under the other frying pans in the pot drawer and, as they are round, they rest inside on the non stick surface. I’m always rescuing it. It’s hard to find a place for it where the surface is protected. It’s an awkward shape and heavy. If I had a vertical rack type thing to stand it on its side it would be the most space efficient way. Overall, I like the easy wipe-clean and the hotter temps achieved. I am using it more in preference to other pans but we are still getting the hang of it. The surface seems like it might be long wearing and that makes me interested in trying more Tefal cookware. As it’s only had 30 days use I cannot speak to the longevity so I will try to remember to update my review in future.

It does what it says.Unlimited Induction Non-Stick Crepe Pan 32cm
We've received one of these to review VIA product reviews ambassador program.
We've only used it a couple of times as we were moving into a new place with induction and the old didn't have it.
I've tested this against our Meyer Accent Series cookware and I did notice that this gives a little better heat distribution and that the noise generated from the cooktop was a little less while using the non-stick crepe Pan.
It's been used for both pancakes and crepes that kids absolutely loved.
East to use, fast heat up (I guess anything inductio... Read moren is), and good distribution of the heat for even cooking, easy to wash up when finished (although probably too bulky for a dishwasher), I would say that there's a moderate weight increase over our normal non stick frypan, but nothing too much especially considering it has a relatively thick base. My only two gripes are 1.)It attracts a lot of dust and that doesn't like to come out. 2). I don't like plastic handles. It cheapens the feel. This rings true for this product as well.
Questions & Answers
How do I prepare a pan prior to using?
Hi Sharon. No preparation necessary other than a wash when you first get it home. Just put it on hot plate and when the red dot changes colour it’s ready to use. I did a review on this pan about a year ago. Still going strong so I can recommend it.
