What makes a good pan?
The wall thickness of the pan is crucial, and the best pans are 2-3mm thick, this means you get good heat transfer up the side of the pan, which is what makes them such a good tool. We have had people send us decorative pans, which are not thick enough, and we have advised against having them tinned, as we want satisfied customers.
A good pan is heavy, so it needs a decent handle, iron handles don’t transfer heat, so won’t get hot, brass handles do conduct heat, so you will have to use gloves with them.
From time to time, we have sets of pans available for purchase on line, and are looking at having a range of pans made to our specification.
