Ikea Steka Frying Pan
Advantages: Easy to clean and cook with, non stick
Disadvantages: handle becomes loose
When my old frying pan fell apart I had to buy one pretty much straight away as being a weight watchers member I have to have fried mushrooms and onions in pretty much everything i cook to bulk out my meals, so a quick trip to our local Ikea was in order.
Hunting around Ikea sometimes feels like being in a jumble sale as there is so many products to choose from but I must admit I was very impressed when I came across this frying pan.
It came as part as a double pan set although you can buy it on its own for around £1.70 ish but with the pan set I picked up it also came with a small frying pan that would be ideal for when we are camping.
We brought it for around £3.00 for both the frying pans and at first glance you can tell straight away that it is a non stick pan, something I can not live without. There is nothing worse than having to stand at your sink scrubbing at a pan for ten minutes.
The packaging was very simple. Clear transparent plastic covered the pans with a label stating what the product was. Inside there was instuctions on how to put the handle on to the smaller pan, although it wasnt rocket science to figure out how it is done.
After washing and drying the pan before use, i began cooking with it and i must say it was excellent. Nothing stuck to the bottom or sides of the pan and i was able to turn the food very easily. Even making bolognese I normally pour in the sauce straight into the frying pan once the mince has cooked and even this never stuck.
After eating and then returning to wash the dishes it was very easy to clean all the food from around the inside of the pan and it took the matter of seconds to get it looking like it had just come out of the packaging.
The only downfall i have found with this is that the handles do come very loose after a few uses and you have to get a screwdriver to tighten the screw that holds the handle on but it doesnt take 2 minutes to do this.
Very easy to use, wash and store in a cupboard because the sides are smaller than some i have seen.
Summary: Great pan for a low cost
