EcoCook Energy Efficient Cookware - Review

It has to be said A Glug of Oil does get sent lots of nice products to try but I must say I'm quite taken by Premier Housewares EcoCook.

With the price of fuel getting higher every year and with more people keen to do their bit for the environment, EcoCook is the way to go!

More about EcoCook:
Made from aluminium using EcoCook means energy efficient cooking. 
Aluminium has superior thermal properties and of course it's very lightweight too.
Baking trays, pots, pans and saucepans are all available in the EcoCook range. The interior is coated with a ceramic-based white non-stick coating made from minerals.  Ceramic has high heat resistance and will not scratch or break down over time and makes the pans a doddle to wash up.  Of course they can go in a dishwasher but you really don't need one to wash these lovelies!

EcoCook being PTFE free (Polytetrafluoroethylene) a synthetic material used in many non-stick pans means it could be healthier for you and is environmentally friendly too.
The coating can withstand temperatures of up to a whopping 280c and will not blister or give off toxic fumes - which is obviously a good thing!
The saucepans and frying pans are suitable for Gas, Electric and Halogen hobs.

And now for my two penneth:
Having used the frying pan and baking tray a good fair amount of times now I can say they are certainly non-stick and so easy to clean.  They not only looked good when they arrived, but still look good after use.

They heat up in no time and I found that cooking something like potato wedges shaved off a good 15 minutes of cooking time and with the price of electricity these days that isn't something to be sniffed at.

Did I say I'm loving the red colour too!
You can see from my pictures below, how the oil from cooking potato wedges just rolled into little blobs making washing up seriously really easy:

The frying pan was equally easy to wash up. The chilli involved frying dried spices such as cumin, paprika and chilli powder - none of which stained the pan at all and it remained looking like new.

Premier Housewares EcoCook bakeware and cookware products start at £7.49 and are available from Amazon.

A big thank you to Pam for sending me these for the purpose of this review.

  1. Don't waste your money on these pans. they work for a few weeks, but after that you'll be using more and more oil to keep food from sticking. Eventually even the oil won't help. One of the worst kitchen utensils I ever bought. 


I love to hear from everyone so thanks for taking the time to comment. Please note comments containing links will NOT be published.
