Can you help sort a confusion on SKK Cookware?

Posting date: 29th June 2010 17:24

Question:

Dear Sir or Madam, I would like to buy a saucepan made by SKK as recommended by Delia Smith ? part of the SKK Titanium 2000 range I believe? due to its impressive non-stick reputation, Metal utensils?! I want it to be about 2 litres and am undecided whether I want a lip/lid or not. I don't have an induction hob but since I may in the future and want a pan that lasts this is a sensible requirement. I will buy others in the future to expand my collection. I have found them listed and described in many ways with many pictures, with many differently designed handles at many prices and I am confused what I am actually buying. Some handles are removable, some not. Some mention "Titanium", some mention "Premium", some mention "Plus", some mention "Induction", most mix up all those terms. Perhaps you can help.

Answer:

Dear Simon

The SKK Titanium range you quote was the old SKK range. It has been replaced by SKK Premium Plus which has an improved surface and removable handles only. Probably some sites or shops only have old stock, or old images which they have not upgraded. Personally, I do not think that metal utensils should be used on any SKK pans. The recommendation is no sharp utensils, but I think no metal is safer. The only pans I know that I would happily recommend metal utensils is Swiss Diamond - but Swiss Diamond is not as non stick as SKK. It all depends what is most important to you.

The SKK Induction range is still based on the old SKK Titanium technology so it is not quite as good as the Premium Plus, but still very good - afterall Delia recommended it, as you say. The induction pans can be used on non induction hobs or induction hobs, but they also now come with detachable long handles not the permenant.

Hope all this helps - Claire
