==Tefal 12 cm Frying Pan==
Really a home needs more than one frying pan and the item we seem to cook most is the good old trusty egg and this small 12 cm frying pan from Tefal is ideal for such an item.
At a little over £6 I picked up this item about a year or so ago from Tesco's. This is a little bit more money than buying a Tesco's own frying pan of the same size which can be bought up for a mere couple of quid. However when buying Tefal you know you are getting a quality item from a trusted name.
This particular frying pan is widely available and most supermarkets stock a few of the Tefal range and this seems to be one of the most popular. They are not difficult to come by especially this one and in my opinion it is good to have a few different sizes in the home.
This pan is sold primarily for cooking eggs in because of its perfect size but of course other small items are still fine to cook in it such as bacon or a couple of sausages. The aluminium metal with which the frying pan is made from makes the product tough yet quite light weight when compared to others. There is a non-stick coating both on the inside of the pan to ensure the food never sticks and on the outside of it to make it much easier to clean and to remove any crusted on food residue with ease.
Cooking with the Tefal frying pan is really very easy especially fried eggs which need hardly any oil or lubrication in the pan to ensure they slide away from the pan with ease and have been perfectly cooked. The handle of the pan is comfortable to hold and is heat resistant so even when doing an open omelet which I will often put in the oven under the grill for a while I know that the handle won't be like molten lava or even melt under the heat (of course it does get a little hot and I always use a cloth just to be on the safe side, plus when the grill is on I always leave the handle poking out the open oven door slightly).
Cleaning the frying pan is just like most Tefal pans, very easy. The fact that they are dishwasher safe makes the task sometimes too easy and even in the dishwasher they come up really well although I find it really lazy to not hand wash them as a god wipe round with a sponge usually brings the pan up to looking good as new. The non-stick coating on the outside of the pan really is a good idea especially if you have cracked your egg open on the edge and have a residue of egg white dripping down the side but with this pan it means nothing because it just peels away so easy.
This Tefal pan I have looks as good now as the day I got it. I am careful not to use anything sharp inside the pan (like Himself does by cutting sausages up in the pans!) as this will of course take away some of the non-stick coating but because I haven't the coating is still in tact years on which when I think how many times per week I use it is really good going.
I can't praise the Tefal pans highly enough and this egg pan really is the perfect way to cook your fried eggs whilst not having to use too much oil in the cooking process. For this I have to award a top score.
5 out of 5 stars and a high recommendation!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
