new set of cooking pans

Post by vwt4 on Thu Aug 25, 2016 7:17 pm

Hi the time has come to replace the pan set we have in our VW Trophy,  just wondered if anyone had any suggestions as to what would be a good set to purchase, bearing in mind the small spaces there are in the Trophy for storage
thanks in advance

Hi Mike

A lot depends on how much you want to spend, and how dire is your storage problem.

We use Tefal Ingenio, which were cheaper in France than they are here!! up!

Good quality saucepans and frying pans with detachable handles that really do work well. A spare handle is useful, but they are not too expensive.

Not cheap, but far easier to store - we don't have a lot more space than you I expect. They can also go in the oven with the handle removed.

We have had the same since 1991. Still perfect - recommended!
BUT - when stacking keep the card separators from the pzcking to avoid scratches and never use metal utensils.

When we had the Symphony we had a set of three-tier steamers , they were small by normal standards (I've seen some in Aldi recently) and fitted in the small centre cupboard under the sink. When you only have two burners they were great, if you have room.

Just had a quick look round for the saucepan set (£75 in Lakeland as posted), and it seems Argos have them for £55.  Still not cheap, but less painful.

Hello VWT4
We have a Vango 3 piece set hard anodised aluminium, cost i think under 25£ (cant remember off hand!) Lightweight. They all fit into each other and come in a nice little bag. The handles wrap around the pans. They have done us proud and take up very little room. We have even less space than you :)
The only thing I would say is the frying pan is slightly small. Generally we have had some good meals cooked in these :)

I think we paid about €50 for ours Ron, so that's about right for France.

Can't understand why they are so much more expensive here. We are still in the EU after all with the wonderful trade agreements, and even if we weren't I can't see why they should be that much more!!

I bought a set of non stick pans in Asda about 9 years ago - the decent ones, not the cheap and cheerful ones! Unfortunately I put them in the dishwasher which damaged the outsides but the insides are still pretty much as new. We moved recently and decided to treat ourselves to some new pans for home so 3 of the Asda ones have gone in the van. My thinking when I started motorhoming was to get cheap for the van, but now we're away as much as at home so need equipment of as good quality. 

We also have a small 3 tier steamer, a non-stick omelette pan we bought at the Malvern show and a deep ceramic frying pan which we use as a wok. Mind you, we do have a bit of space in our van.
