If you’ve recently renovated your kitchen or you’re thinking about upgrading your kitchenware, we’d recommend investing in a new saucepan set. The Prestige range boasts multiple types of saucepan from which to choose but opting for a stainless-steel pan set makes for a solid, reliable choice that blends seamlessly into any culinary environment.
The modern, specialist materials used in Prestige saucepans mean that you won’t find any copper saucepans in our online range. However, if you’re looking for aluminium saucepans, induction hob saucepans or sturdy non-stick stainless-steel saucepans, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve also mastered simple, effortless technologies in our more affordable Cook & Strain stainless-steel saucepans; perfect if you’re on a tighter budget.
If you’ve recently bought a shiny new non-stick saucepan set, it’s understandable if you’re concerned about accidentally damaging one of your pans. As far as basic saucepan maintenance is concerned, we recommend that you:
- Wash your non-stick saucepans carefully with gentle, soft materials, avoiding rough scouring pads, steel wool or abrasive textiles.
- Never leave an empty saucepan on a hot stovetop or inside a hot oven.
- Avoid submerging a still-hot pan in cold water or pouring cold water into it, which could warp the base of the pan. Instead, try to let your saucepan cool down before washing it in warm, soapy water.
A cast-iron saucepan will require careful attention to keep it looking pristine. Luckily, we’ve teamed up with Nadiya Hussain to show you the best way to care for these unique, versatile pans. In Nadiya’s cast-iron cookware guide, you’ll learn not just how to clean your cast-iron pan but also the best way to re-season it if food starts to stick to the surface.
To keep your future Prestige kitchenware in tip-top condition, you’ll need to make sure that it's fully compatible with the type of stovetop in your kitchen before making your purchase. Here's a quick guide to help you to find the right choice:
1. Saucepans for induction hobs
Fast, effective and hassle-free, induction hobs make for a popular choice – but it’s important to remember that they’re not compatible with every type of saucepan. Choosing a Prestige induction saucepan or a complete induction hob saucepan set will ensure optimum efficiency and evenly distributed heat, making cooking even easier.
Remember that, if you cook with a ceramic saucepan, you won’t be able to use it on an electric induction hob. This is because the majority of ceramic pans are manufactured with an incompatible-gauge aluminium base.
2. Saucepans for gas hobs
If you cook over a gas-fired flame, the good news is that every single Prestige saucepan will be perfectly compatible. Just remember to keep a watchful eye on the flame and make sure that it doesn’t reach up beyond the base – this could potentially damage the handle, waste your gas, or taint the outside of the saucepan.
3. Saucepans for ceramic hobs
On a ceramic stove, we’d recommend cooking with either adonised stainless steel or heavy-gauge aluminium saucepans with a smooth, flat base. Using these materials will keep your ceramic hob looking cleaner for longer, and aluminium saucepans in particular are tough, scratch-resistant, and easy to clean.
At Prestige, we know how important it is to be kinder to the planet. Regardless of your cooking style, it’s always possible to start being more eco-friendly from your kitchen. To help you to hit the ground running, we’ve released our own range to start bringing environmentally friendly cookware to the UK market.
All of the saucepans and frying pans in our best-selling Prestige Eco cookware range are made with innovative plant-based, PFOA-free non-stick technology. Fully recyclable and induction-ready, these pans also come complete with a five-year guarantee. Plus, for every Eco saucepan sold, we’ll plant a tree – so if you’ve been thinking about upgrading to a more eco-friendly saucepan, don’t look elsewhere.
The cost of your new Prestige saucepan will vary depending on a few factors, including the size of the pan. For instance, regardless of the Prestige cookware range from which you buy, you should expect to pay a little bit more for a large saucepan than you would for a small saucepan such as a milk pan.
One of the best ways to make buying new kitchenware more cost-effective is to invest in a new saucepan set. Our Scratch Guard non-stick stainless-steel 3-piece saucepan set, for example, offers the best deal on three of the most versatile saucepans in our online range. However, if you’re looking for something more affordable, we also have saucepan sets for sale starting from £79.99. If you have any questions about your order or would like to learn more about a Prestige saucepan you’ve seen online, don’t hesitate to contact us – we’re happy to help.
