Design Project by John Lewis

Inspired by the best of design principles, this series of original pieces for the modern home is progressive in intent and beautifully crafted. This season we've applied its forward-thinking ethos to tableware, combining contemporary design with functionality.

Here are 3 of our favourite pieces:

Jamie Oliver's Pancakes

Whether you call it Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday, it's almost upon us, so it's time to start thinking about the right tools for making them. Jamie Oliver recommends his new collaboration with Tefal, for a frying pan he can't live without

'My Tefal range of pans provides beautifully even heat distribution. I use them all the time at home for quick and simple dishes, such as pancakes.'


'The famous Tefal Thermo-Spot lets you know when the panis at the right temperature. Make sure the spot is hot before you start frying your pancake batter – you'll really notice the difference.'


'We've made sure that the pans in the range are all comfortable to hold and easy to use, no matter whether you're flipping pancakes or searing steaks.'

In season
