I recently received the Salter Marble Stone 3pc Pan Set (containing 16, 18 & 20cm saucepans) and 24cm frying pan and they would make the perfect Mother's Day gift for mums who love to cook.
Firstly, how beautiful do they look? They are a far cry from block coloured cookware which in my eyes makes them more exciting.
They are aluminium but marble coated with an aluminium induction bottom. The handles are soft touch Bakelite. The marble creates a non-stick surface so I was eager to try this out. It states that they are to be used with little or no oil. I was so worried about ruining the bottom so I did use one quick spray of low cal cooking oil but my food cooked perfectly. Heat is distributed evenly and they are just a delight to cook with.
I did have one occasion where I overcooked mushrooms in the frying pan which left a sticky brown residue. I washed it straight away and it all came away without me having to make a fuss. The pan looked as good as new!
The pans come with steam-vented lids too.
The 3pc pan set retails at £69.99 and the frying pan at £24.99 and they can be purchased at No1Brands4You.
