It’s no secret how much I love a good pan set so when I was asked recently to test out the new EcoCook pan set range from Premier Housewares I have to admit that I did a little squee. Not only are they the funkiest pans I have ever seen with their bright vibrant colours with matching lids but they also have been approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute so I knew before I even opened the box that the quality was going to be high. The EcoCook range is eco-friendly & non-stick with a mineral based white ceramic coating. It boasts superior thermal conducting properties and offers staggering heat resistance that delivers environmental peace of mind, as well as utility and energy efficiency. I received a frying pan, a saute pan with lid and a saucepan from the range to try them out.
So just how were they going to fair in my kitchen?
I’m a scruffy cook. I make a mess, use every single pan and then leave it until the morning before I wash up. I don’t often admit it here but I do sometimes burn things too. Usually scrambled eggs. So the first test for the EcoCook saucepan was to make scrambled eggs, with grated cheese on top. I left Misteright in charge so it had more chance of catching on the bottom of the pan. I have to admit I was slightly thrilled when the eggs did not catch on to the pan. Misteright can’t do scrambled egg without a pan having to go in the bin so this was a huge thing for us. The EcoCook range had already saved me a small fortune on saucepans alone and I’d only tried one pan out. The washing up of the pan wasn’t a hardship either. Misteright actually shouted me through to come and watch him wash it up. He was full of “Oooh” and “Aaahhh” – I think he was impressed. It’s not often he gets excited about kitchenware so I’m just going with his excitement!
The frying pan had it’s first outing the following night. Once a week I make a Chinese style feast which involves sticky chicken and a pan soaking for 2 days in water. Not this time! The EcoCook frying pan was great for cooking Chinese food. It got as hot as my wok without any effort at all and the high sides and matching lid meant I didn’t get splashed with oil. When it came to cleaning the sticky sauce from the pan, it just wiped off with a bit of kitchen roll and the rest came off with water and a wipe. Of course, we washed it properly for hygiene purposes but you could just wipe and use again if you needed to. I like that in a pan set.
The huge sauté pan was amazing for cooking egg fried rice. Egg is a huge issue for most pans but not for these. I use eggs and egg based dishes when I’m testing out new pans. I think you can tell straight away from cooking one just how good a pan will perform. Egg fried rice is no exception. There wasn’t even any residue on the side of the pan – there usually is with my regular pans, even with my wok. There’s always that crispy bit on the sides that you just can’t shift but the EcoCook pans really did not have that at all. I was really impressed.
You can see from the video just how great the pans are.
Overall, the EcoCook pans are easy to handle, easy to use, they cook food evenly and are incredibly easy to clean. I love the style and the finish on the pans. they have brightened up the stove top no end. If you’re looking for a pan with all these features then I highly recommend the EcoCook range. The EcoCook range from Premier Housewares is available in lime green, pillar box red and black and are on sale now from Amazon and Wayfair
Disclaimer – I received a complimentary EcoCook pan set from Premier Housewares for the purpose of this review.
I’m not swayed by free stuff. All opinions are my own and these pans truly rock. They are a must for any kitchen!
