Pros & Cons of the Tefal Essential Cookware Set

Below we have captured what buyers actually said. This includes all buyers as we like to keep our reviews balanced. Even though only 2 out of 100 buyers rated these saucepans as a 1 star product, we always like to find out why. 


  • Extremely well made and high quality
  • These are truly non-stick
  • Really simple to clean after cooking
  • The pieces all heat up really quickly
  • Not heavy and yet very strong
  • Great value for money
  • Handles are made from bakelite
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Really great that you can use in the oven
  • Storage is just great


  • Almost no complaints - but those that existed were about buying these for an induction hob - these are not suitable for those.

Most of the 1 star reviews in all honesty do not make a lot of sense. Those buyers complained that they bought these for an induction oven. These saucepans are not suitable for those types of ovens.
