Apologies if this has recently been asked before - I looked at the first 2 pages of this section and didn't notice a similar question, but I'm very sorry if I missed something and am annoying someone by repeating the query.

As the header says, I'm just looking for a good non-stick frying pan that doesn't cost £££. I bought a couple of ceramic pans not long ago (I think £30 for both a small-sized and a medium-sized pan), but they proved to be not very non-stick at all.

All suggestions gratefully received.

Many thanks in advance.

No help to you now, but I usually buy them from Lidl or ALDI when they have them.

The price is generally £10 to £12 pounds for a full size pan. I have found they last very well.

Agreed, dh came home with a frying pan from aldi a few weeks ago. We do food shopping there but I was a bit skeptical about the pan. Its the best frying pan I've ever used. I absolutely hate making fried eggs usually. They bloody stick to the bottom all the time. But with this pan they slide round all over the place and haven't stuck once. And even better I think he only paid £6 for it. Hopefully they are still there as I will be going back for a spare before they stop selling them

I was given a Jamie Oliver one and it's brilliant, no sticking at all, even at high heat for searing joints of meat.

I swear by a £30 Lakeland one. I had a Le Creuset one but it was too heavy.

Agree with Lidl or Aldi, and they are often induction compatible too.
You could try Home Sense - I got a real bargain Judge frying pan there.

I've got that jml stone based pan its about £30. Nothing sticks.

I get Jamie Oliver tefal ones from Amazon. They are very non-stick. They get replaced every couple of years because the dishwasher eats then though...

Tefal are always good

I second the JML one. I got a large one first and was so impressed I then got the smaller one for eggs. Had them about a year and still nothing sticks to them.

I am amazed at my (less than £10 ) non stick pan I bought from Sainsburys think it was £6/8 pound 28cm....bought it for camping then noticed you could dishwasher so figured would try at home and its fantastic...just their own brand - have used it loads and dishwashed and its fine well over a year now....

This frying pan costs £25. It's a bit more expensive but if it degrades, the manufacturer will replace it for free.

Circulon hard anodised. They last for years.

Got to treat them right though - never dishwasher, just wipe with damp cloth and dry.

Not the cheapest but worth it and often on sale

Lakeland ceramic range. Get the wok too it's great!

fredabear Thu 15-Jun-17 21:04:16

tefal on offer in sains at the mo I think

We have a Stellar one, it's very solid and has survived for about 5 years so far.

Gosh, lots of suggestions! I'll have a proper look at the links etc. now.

Many thanks to all.

Hard anodised are brilliant - I'd look in TK Maxx, you'll probably get more for your money.

NeonSun Thu 22-Jun-17 07:00:34

I agree with the previous responses here, Tefal and Stellar models are the best smile My family had both of these pans and they were very good even after many years smile I got my own Tefal model too and yeah, they're always good smile
Also some electric skillets like in this list from cozzy for example have good quality too and some of them aren't very expensive smile

Saintsbury's own make-up brilliant!

I have lots of "fancy" pans but my best non-stick is a £8 job from IKEA! It's fairly small - I bought it for an apartment I was staying at alone for a few weeks that didn't have a decent frying pan - but perfect for 3 fried eggs/an omelette/pancakes etc. Next time I'm in IKEA I think I'll get another one!

I got a great one from TK Maxx. They have Tefal and other known brands as well as German and Italian makes. Can't remember the price, but it was cheaper than Sainsbo's as I returned the one I'd got from there.

I bought a fab roasting tin there too.
