I visited the lake district in January. I usually buy online, but enjoyed my visit to the store in Windermere. I always buy my pans from Lakeland and bought this frying pan on impulse as my usual one was not in stock. I find my frying pans last about 3 years before they stick. At over £40 I thought it must be good quality. It is dreadful and has been pushed to the back of my cupboard for months now. I bought another frying pan this week elsewhere, so decided to go on to Lakeland web site to see what reviews there were regarding this pan. I was not surprised to see everyone in agreement.
