Q: I thought it was "T-Fal"? Anyway, this stuff is advertised on Home Shopping Channel, sold at K-Mart, you can find them at the dump... If you want to spend just a few dollars on a whole set of cookware, and you don't much care about quality, or lasting value, then this is the kind to get. You can't put them in the oven, you can't use metal utensils, they don't recommend that you put them in the dishwasher, etc. (I saw their instructions sheet once). Again, as an interim measure, you can cook in these, but if you're ready to start building a set of cookware for a lifetime (one good pan is better than a dozen cheapies), invest in high qualilty cookware. One line I'll endorse is ScanPan 2000. Particularly the frying pans. They are heavy, have a non-scratchable non-stick surface, and they come with a lifetime guarantee.
A: I know I saw a discussion about this many months ago, but Ic an't find it. So, I apologize for redundancy. Is T-Fel ANY good? I thought I heard somewhere it was, but a friend of mine lent me a T-Fel pan and it was flimsy and just like the older versions of Silverstone. Was this one just a fluke, or are there different levels of T-Fel? Well, there's T-Fal and there's TFal. I've looked at the ones in stores. Most are just teflon coated pans. There are different grades...and some may be OK. Yes, I would liken them to Silverstone. The TFal pans that I bought at the local couty fair are completely different. I haven't seen these in stores or catalogs. They are a metal coating (NOT teflon) bonded to aluminum. After seasoning nothing sticks to the inside OR THE OUTSIDE! They heat evenly. They seem to be a better construction that the ones in the stores. The pans (and handles) can go into the oven. I've used my "chicken fryer" (deep fry pan) 4-5 days a week for nearly a year now. It's in good condition. I don't think I'd even try another brand of pans.
