Ikea enamel cookware?

Saw it in the catalogue this weekend. Good price, but how does it "handle"?

  1. I was just going to post this question myself! Thanks Diana for beating me to it. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. :)

    1. I have the Ikea skillet and I really like it. It does have a wooden handle so if you are planning to broil or use it in the oven it might not be what you want. But if you are just using it on the top of the stove to cook or saute it is a good heavy pan at a good price. I also like that it has a black interior so it doesn't show the stains like some other brands. Mine also has "Made in France" on the bottom.I have had mine about 7 months and it has been a good solid pan that has easy to use and clean.

      I do not have the cookers but looking at them in the store they seemed decent. They were heavy like they expensive brand.

          It looks fine to me. It is as heavy as my Lodge cast iron pan as far as weight. As far as I can tell, the enamel is as thick as any other enameled pan. I had the advantage of going to an Ikea store to check it out for myself, so when I picked it up to check it out and it seemed to be what I was looking for and the price wasn't bad. I have been happy with mine.

      1. I have the fondue pot. Not exactly an everyday pan, so I can't comment on durability, but so far I've been happy with it.
