Keen to know which brand to buy? Or want to share a great purchase with the rest of us? This is the place to do it...
I notice that last year someone was searching for a Le Saucier. Last week my Le Saucier of 20 years bit the dust (hole in the saucepan bit). I know I can buy one on a French site but it's awfully expensive and they are no longer made for the UK market.I was hoping that someone out there had one gathering dust that they would like to find a good home for, at a reasonable price. Don't mind if it is the old design as that is just what mine was.....Anyone help, please??
HelloI still have my very old one, virtually unused. Every few years I drag it out and determine to practice making elaborate sauces - but don't...I have no idea what to ask for it - have you any idea? I fear the cost ofposting it may be quite a lot.If you're interested, we can come to some arrangement.RegardsMoyra Elder
Hi MoyraThat is fantastic news! I have no idea either but not bothered by cost of posting - just be so thrilled to be able to replace it. Mine too was the older model so that's OK.Whereabouts in the country do you live? If close, perhaps I could pick up. I am in Cardiff.Many thanksPauline
Hi PaulineYou'd have quite a slog to come and pick it up: we live in the north-west highlands.What do you think of £15, including postage? There's one on eBay, currently standing at £21 after eight bids, and with postage at £8 (huh!) I don't want to be greedy, so let me know what you think and if you agree you could let me have your full name and address and I'll start looking for a box.Kind regardsMoyra
Hi MoyraI think you are undercharging for postage so I suggest £20 inclusive. What is the condition like, comparable to the Ebay item?As far as progressing this, I am not certain we are allowed to share personal information. Perhaps the adjudicator could help with this.I have my office email set up for responses so I won't see anything now till Monday morning unfortunately. I think I will try adding my other email at the end. If the site allows it - contact me that way, otherwise I will await to see what the site suggests. (You can see I am a novice with forums!!)Regards Paulinepollyowens@btconnect.com
You can always put your email address into your profile, many of us have.good luck with your transaction though, could work out well for you both!x
This thread has made me want to dig mine out and try it again. I haven't used it for ages because I found it difficult to clean eg the paddle (or whatever it is called) as it is not nonstick. I remember using a pastry brush to try and clean round the spindle as it was difficult to get into the small space in the pan. Has anyone got any tips? I must have had it for nearly 10 years so presumably it is the old model.
I put the pan and the stirrer in the dishwasher. If you don't use one, then just soak for a while and should all float off. I have had a problem around the spindle, even using a dishwasher. Quite often there is a ring of thicker sauce left there. A washing up brush or old toothbrush will get it off easily after soaking.Hope that helps.Don't stop using it. I particularly find mine great when doing a roast. Just as everything is coming together, the last thing you want to do is hold it all up while you make the gravy. I use browning, fat from the meat, and stock made from the water I cooked all the vegetables in. That way, no goodness is lost.Best of luck.Pauline
Thanks for your reply Pollyowens. I am not sure if I tried soaking it (don't have a dishwasher) or if I tried to clean it straight away. Possibly a mixture of both. From memory, and it is so long since I used it, I think I always felt it didn't make the sauce hot enough. I am a vegetarian so it was usually a milk based one I made and I think the instruction book said bring to the boil. Mine didn't reach that stage but I don't know if that is a fault with my particular one. The next time I need a sauce I am definitely going to look it out and give it another try.
hello,Im also looking for a Tefal sauce maker if anybody happens to have one they no longer need and would like to sell to me firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
There seem to be some on ebay
Hi Guys,I have just joined the site, and i am looking to purchase a Tefal le saucier. Can any body help me.
Likewise, I am on the hunt for a replacement Le Saucier. I've been trying on Ebay for a few months as the non-stick Tefal on mine has become a bit the worse for wear, but I always seem to be outbid in the final minutes! I've had mine for years but over the Christmas period, the hotplate finally decided not to heat up any more. I can't live without it! If there are any kind people out there who have one languishing in their cupboards, do please let me know. My email address is email@example.com. Thank you so much. Christine in Suffolk
I saw one at a friends house and I WANT ONE. Has anyone out there got one for sale please.Jany
