There’s not much more essential in your kitchen than a set of pans. Aside from those weekday night traybake recipes (and oven pizzas), there aren't many dishes you can make without them, so it pays to have some decent ones — and to replace them when they start looking a little worse-for-wear.
So, if you’ve noticed you’ve been scrubbing off more burnt-on bits after dinner, it might be time to make a switch — and we’ve spotted a £35 discount on the GHI’s third-place pan set on Very. This brings the price to just under £140, which is great value for five pans. (If you don't need that many, the winning set has three.)
Comprising a 14cm milk pan, a 16cm saucepan, an 18cm saucepan, a 20cm saucepan and a 25cm frying pan, this set impressed our panel, earning a near-perfect 93/100 on test.
The team raved about the very effective non-stick coating that left nothing stuck to the bottom and needed barely any oil for greasing either. Whether cooking meat, making a milk-based sauce, or cooking caramel, the Momentum pans scored perfect marks; meat had a great sear, sauce thickened nicely, and caramel reduced at a steady and controlled pace. The frying pan performed very well, too, perfectly frying an egg on every hob type.
They’re easy to use and care for, too; winning praise for being lightweight and balanced, with silicone handles that were easy to grip and remained cool. Even after multiple cycles in the dishwasher, the pans all worked as new and lids still fit comfortably.
In fact, there really wasn’t much to dislike. The set only lost marks on one test — when cooking pancakes, they didn’t brown as quickly as the team would have liked, especially when using an induction hob.
Really, though, this isn’t enough to put us off investing in such a high-performing set — especially when they’re on sale. You can pick up this set of pans here on Very but be quick, as we don’t think this deal will be around for long.
