Lakeland Classic 28cm Frying Pan 2 "disappointed - twice over" Mrs Baines 28 February 2012 This review is for an older version of this product This pan was a wonderful improvement on our old one as the non-stick coating is very good. However, the first pan was returned within 2 months because the outside of the pan looked awful. Despite washing by hand, the outer black surface peeled off and looked really scruffy. Exchanged for another in the hope that the problem was a one off - sadly no. The second pan exterior detoriorated just as quickly, but because the non-stick part still works very well, we still use the pan. Saucepan from the same range displayed the same problem. Cook OK; look bad. Think a quality check is in order A note from the team Thank you for placing your review, We're sorry you've experienced these problems.
