Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick 3 Piece Saucepan Set
A joy to cook with
Both my husband and I thought long and hard at spending the extra money for these pans. We where moving to our new home which had an Induction hob so needed to replace our pan set. I absolutely love these saucepans (we also purchased a large and smaller frying pan). They work a treat with the hob and not at all heavy as you may expect.

Excellent Cooking Experience.
Having purchased the set of 3 pans recently , I am " over the moon" with my selection, They make cooking easy and more especially after the cleaning up now is a treat.

A Superb Set of Pans!
Have been using these for the last few weeks and they are simply a joy. Even heat distribution, stylish looks, helper handles, so easy to clean too. Had a slight quality problem with the middle sized pan but this was rapidly replaced by John Lewis. So impressed that I purchased the Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick frying pan as well!

Great saucepans, exactly as required
We bought these saucepans under a bit of pressure as we had a new induction hob fitted just before Christmas, so had to buy new pans suitable for the induction hob the week before Christmas. After a lot of deliberation, we chose these. Not disappointed at all. They look and feel great, and aren't at all heavy to handle (and I have weak wrists). The handles don't get hot and they are easy to clean. We haven't tried them in the dishwasher yet but they are easy to rinse off in the sink so there doesn't seem any need. Also, the induction hob recognises them fine and water is boiled quickly (which was a concern having read some of the other reviews). Delivery from JL was great, even though it was just before Christmas. Ordered and picked up from local Waitrose the next day. Great purchase.

Brilliant purchase. These pans are robust, stylish and nothing sticks. I bought them after recommendation from my sister. We are both very happy with them and the best thing is the are dishwasher safe. Well worth spending the extra.

So Far So Good
I brought this set to replace a set of Tefal that I have been using for 20 years. The set offered the quality I was looking for to hopefully last for the next 20 years with the thought you get what you pay for.
So far the pans have lived up to my expectations and having the glass lid makes it easy to see the food cooking and a big plus is being able to drain the food with the lid in place so you don't loose your peas or pasta down the sink!
Overal I would say expensive but worth it.

Excellent quality, great investment.
Some people don't see the point in buying anything but cheap pans, but personally I have found over the years that it's a false economy. Firstly they don't last very long, and secondly even when they're brand new they are not nearly as nice to cook with as these pans. I have used several different makes but I have found these to be the best in many respects. Most importantly the non-stick surface is second to none, it's a doddle to clean and lasts for years (I bought these off the back of their frying pan which I have owned for years, and despite getting dented when i dropped that onto a stone floor the coating is still as good as new). The handle is also very comfortable and doesn't get hot. They're a good weight, i.e. they have a quality feel yet aren't so heavy that you can't lift them. They heat up very fast and distribute the heat evenly. And I like the glass lids as you can see what is going on without having to remove the lid.
Oh, and if you're wondering why i needed to buy these if i always buy quality pans that last for years, it was simply because I have switched to an induction cooker and I needed these to replace those i had which weren't compatible.
I would definitely recommend these pans and the only other ones which I'd consider are the stainless steel Le Creuset ones.
