What a shame! When these pans first arrived, I was thrilled with the colour and that they were so easy to store. However, unfortunately, the first ratchet handle broke within two week and the second has now broken whilst lifting the frying pan which had bacon and oil in it so I was lucky not to get burnt when it dropped! I wouldn't buy them again for this reason alone. Plus I cannot now find a replacement ratchet :( Perhaps I was unlucky but I am back to normal pots with handles now!

Nesting Pan Set”
by May Sloan
I absolutely love these. The handles are so easy to use on the hob or to remove from the oven. Could do with lids - however some of my own lids do fit some of the pans so not a problem. Well done. great product and good value.

OMG these are the best pans since sliced bread, absolutely nothing sticks and then it's a quick wipe round and done. I would recommend these to anyone.

Simply Fabulious by Mary Alice”
by Mrs Pollard
For months I have been watching shopping channels offering all kinds of cookware, watching videos showing how various products work but yesterday a friend suggested Lakelands and off I went and I found exactly what I was looking for ! We don't have a lot of money but buying this set was worth every penny. It has saved on buying new oven pans I have now, two for the price of one ! Our first meal was amazing, we actually tasted the food instead of OIL, and the non stick was just that, there was not one piece of anything stuck on the pan ( I did treat the pan first) ! Really thrilled with them !

Fabulous pans - please make extras available separately!”
by Mrs Davies
I adore these pans, but I wish I could buy some more handles. I have had these for around 18 months and both of the handles have now broken, and one of the lids has met an end too. It would be really useful if you could buy replacement extras.

good to start with”
by Mrs Strath
Bought these pans for the colours and compact storage. To start with they were fine, but I have had them for about a year and the non stick surface has become very marked and not non stick, the handles have become difficult to use as they stick. Found they didn't clean well in dishwasher, better washing by hand. I did use them from hob to oven the results were good, but was uncomfortable using handle to take out off oven.i am really 50/50 on these pans. They seem to have a lot of good reviews.

Suggested improvement - urgently!”
These pans are great for all of the reasons given in the description - BUT - there are no lids that can be used while cooking. I bought this set to replace a previous set but have ended up keeping the other set as well so that I can use lidded pans. PLEASE get your developers to produce lids for them.

I received these little beauties as a Christmas present...after some not so subtle hints. I loved the idea of space saving, and the dishwasher proof ness was a bonus. Well...I got my new pans. So light...a bonus after the heavy cast pans I had been using...and as for cleaning, an absolute breeze. No dishwasher required. Hardly any effort required to be honest! The removable handle is easy to use, and the pans nest beautifully in a tidy wee space.They go from hob to freezer with the handy lids, the teal coloured pan being ideal for a family shepherds pie.

Wonderful pan set”
I received mine today and put one to use. I used the 20cm pan for frying my onions and peppers and i did find the pan moved around whilst stirring. This probably won't happen when more heavier ingredients are added but i did need to use my silicone glove to control it a bit. Definitely need lids and it would be nice to see Lakelands Multi Pan Lid in similar colours to match these. The milk pan was a wonderful addition but would have been nice to have been handle free too. Overall a very nice set of stacking pans that without lids still worth having.

I was thrilled when I opened the box and am now really enjoying using them. They are very light weight and the non stick finish is better than any other pan I have owned. After a slight issue with one of the ratchet handles getting stuck on a pan, which was brilliantly resolved by the great customer services team I will be recommending these pans to anyone who will listen! My pan drawer is no longer a challenge to close as there are no handles to stick out! The only thing is I would love a larger multi-fit lid to fit the 2 larger pans

Love them, love them, love them”
After much obsessive internet research over which saucepan set to buy, I settled on these and I am absolutely positive I made the best choice. They are wonderful. So easy to wash up, lovely and tactile, brilliant that they nest in each other to put away and put in the dishwasher without any awkward handles, pretty colours. I simply love them. I thought the price was pretty good too, especially since I got the free milk pan. I also bought the wok, as that comes with a lid which is handy. Lids would be good, but some of my old set fitted so not so much of a problem.

I have searched for years for pans like these, they are so versatile and nothing sticks to them, I browned meat and onions on stove top then put in oven with pastry topping, perfect and absolutely as good as new with a quick wash, I shall be buying the rest of this range, I have already thrown out my old pans! Buy them you won't regret it.

ceramica 4 piece nesting pan set.”
i have been cooking since i was twelve and i am now half a century old and i have never had pots as good as these ! i love the fact you can detach handles, why hasn't someone thought of this before? They are extremely easy to clean and im not exaggerating scrambled egg has never been so easily cleaned of any pot i have ever used ! i shall be spreading the word!!!!

lovely pan set”
I was a bit worried about ordering these pans, as I wasn't sure about the removable handle. They are a beautiful set, easy to wash and I love that they can go directly into the oven. The ratchet handle works really well and the stack perfectly in my cupboard. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend them if you are looking for a tidy functional set f pans.

perfect for canal boat”
Needing something space saving and light I was impressed by the reviews. These pans exceeded all my expectations. Mashed potato slides out of a spotless pan! I will have to buy a second set for home. They are too pretty to hide away in a cupboard and all my friends have been shown them. I bought the multilid which is great for the smaller pans and I have found a bigger lid lurking in my cupboard to use with the saute pan. Well done!

We have a Land Cruiser with a roof tent on top so all our touring gear has to fit inside the vehicle. These pans are excellent for that and are much better than the nesting pans specifically for campers which tend to be on the small side.

I can't believe I waited nearly a year to buy these! Perfect in every way! Gorgeous colours, stackable, light, easy to wash. I could go on and on. Buy these... You will NOT be disappointed! Thanks Lakeland :)

caravaners please note”
by Roy ReeceRoyR
We bought these pans to use on our gas BBQ. They are Brilliant! All pans fit the grill with the lid closed, so there are endless possibilities. No damage or staining of the pans from the grill either. Highly recommended!

Lovely but need lids”
I love these pans, the non-stick is excellent and the colours are great. However, they really need lids - I am having to use lids from my old pans which don't really fit properly which is not ideal. Overall I would recommend them because the pans themselves are great but the lack of lids means they can't be 5 star.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. The buyer is trying to source a set of lids for the pans, but we don't have a date as yet.
I have just purchased my nesting pans and they are excellent for everything except casseroles that need a nice tight lid for the oven, I am surprised they were deemed unnecessary by the designers.
