SSK pans

Has anyone got them and what are they like.
Here we are ready to have a declutter of the pantry with 2 loaded shelves of assorted saucepans - all different shapes sizes and all old and in poor condition. We are looking to start afresh but now in our early 60's we are not sure what to go for. Not too worried about budget even if some of the SSK prices made me wince. Looking for really good heat distribution, something that wont stick, has glass lids with vents, handles that dont burn the skin off your hands,and that don't weigh a ton as I have back problems and find lifting heavy pans full of hot food a bit tricky at times. Easy eh? any thoughts of suggestions much appreciated as the choice is overwhelming. I use gas to cook on.

SKK Pans

Hello Maura,

I have an SKK frypan which I like a lot. The range has a very tough non stick surface that you can use metal utensils on. The handles are oven proof and are also removable should you want to put them under the grill. You can buy glass lids but they are not vented, they are oven proof however. The pans have a solid very flat base which conducts heat very efficiently. I would say they are lighter than Le Creuset for instance if you have any experience of that range. There is also a range called SKK Light which (not surprisingly!) are lighter. I hope this helps.

Pans

Hi Maura
I have all kinds of good pans, some of them from Procook. They have a great selection of all kinds of pans at very good prices. I would suggest having a look at their website - link below:

SSK Pans

Thanks Sharon & Rosemary - your replies are very helpful. I have looked for the SKK pans online and will now have a look on the Procook website to make some comparisons. To further complicate the matter I have discovered there are some pans which now have a ceramic coating which I have not come across before.
Having had a quick look around I do quite like to appearance of stainless steel pans rather than the matt grey or black exterior and think that Jamie Olivers professional range are like this and scored very well in the Good Housekeeping survey - so I have a few options on the shortlist now ;-)
Thanks again.
