Stellar Cookware's Rocktanium Saute Pan | Review and a Recipe

The Rocking Pan and Pan Sets from Stellar Cookware are the latest additions to the company's ever-expanding range of cookware. Last year they launched a new non-stick frying pan collection called 'Rocktanium'. I had reviewed this on the blog last year and the frying pan is really hard-wearing. It still makes the fluffiest of omelettes in spite of being put to extensive use for over 14 months.

Following up on the popularity of the Rocktanium collection, Stellar recently launched a new collection of quality non-stick saucepans in a range of essential sizes. I have been testing out the 24cm Saute Pan and I must admit, I have been quite impressed. The pan reflects the high quality that I expect from Stellar Cookware and has been a versatile addition to my kitchen.

Key features of the 24cm Saute Pan


The saute pan makes use of PFOA free Quantanium Non-Stick that has excellent scratch resistance and is harder and more durable than conventional non-stick. The pan has been made from thick aluminium with an induction base to ensure even heat distribution. With Stainless steel cast handles and vented glass lid, the pan not only looks attractive but also offers excellent results while cooking. The non-stick property is excellent - no sticking or burning of food. And the pan is very easy to clean as well. A good thing about the Saute pan is that you can put it in the dishwasher although I have never done that as I prefer to wash it by hand - much quicker and easier with just hot soapy water. The pan is suitable for all hob types and comes with a Lifetime Guarantee (10 years on the non-stick).

If the curry is too spicy for your taste, add a dollop of butter in the end!
