  • Flare® 26cm Frying Pan

    Lakeland actively seeks out innovation and our Buying Department were really excited by these scientific saucepans that cook faster and cook better…

    A world first, Flare® pans have been developed using breakthrough FIN-X technology in conjunction with a real-life rocket scientist at Oxford University. His usual field of expertise is that of thermo-dynamics applied to advanced jet engines, so it’s easy to see where his inspiration came from!

    Developed to be exceptionally effective on a gas hob*, the uniquely designed, high-performance fins channel heat from the flame across the bottom, driving it up the sides of the pan, resulting in super efficient, incredibly even heat distribution. This means the pans heat up significantly quicker so food cooks faster, saving you time and using less energy too – in fact, in tests performed by Oxford University, an equivalent pan without the special fin design was shown to need 40% more energy to heat up than a Flare pan.

    But as you know, here at Lakeland we’re sticklers for testing too! So they’ve also been given a thorough trial by our Buyer, Veronica who made a big stockpot of her trademark chilli. She found the Flare pan achieved an even, low simmer that remained consistent throughout cooking, making it easier to avoid messy boil-overs and prevent food catching on the bottom of the pan. It also cooked her dinner far quicker than usual much to the delight of her family!

    *Flare pans are specifically designed to be extremely efficient on gas hobs. When used on electric, ceramic and halogen hobs, the pan won’t heat faster but will still heat incredibly evenly for better cooking results. Oven safe up to 205°C.

    • Performance ‘fins’ funnel flames into position around the pan.
    • Heat is distributed uniformly across the base and up the sides.
    • Food cooks much quicker without burning or scorching.
    • Formed from cast aluminium for excellent heat conduction, with stainless steel handles.
    • Non-stick coated inside for easy food release and clean up (the inside of the pan is a conventional shape!).

    • Oven safe

    "Frying Pan for Gas"

    I have bought both frying pans and find them very good. The heating up is quick and even. I have not, so far, had any problems with the surface which cooks evenly and washes easily.

    "Definitely cooks faster"

    I am really happy with this pan. It is well balanced, a sensible weight, easy to clean, and it actually does seem to cook faster with a very even heat.

    "Not convinced"

    I wanted to like this pan, both because of the technology and the amount I'd paid. However, it is far from being my favourite. The difference in heat seems marginal, the non stick covering doesn't extend to the rim of the pan (which means it looks dirty a lot) and the surface area is quite small because of the curved shape. I have the Swift Griddle pan which I love and a Colourful Ceramica milk pan, which is fab - wish I'd bought the Ceramica frying pan instead!

    A note from the team
