My understanding is yes, they are. Bialetti make a great one...check the link and if you scroll to the bottom of it, you will see there is a video link which should give you some good info.

I replaced my frypan with the large size ceramic pan that are available at Farmers, got it on 50% off sale.Recommended to me by a family friend who has had hers for a couple of years and uses it all the time and it's still as good as new. They just need a wipe out with kitchen roll after use.

I got one recently and am seriously impressed.

Have gone back to cast iron and if seasoned correctly they are almost as good as a non stick pan and brown much better

I bought one on special at Farmers too and so far I am happy with it.They have a few different brands.I got the Baccarat one.

I was impressed with my Farmers one ... for a while ... then everything started to stick!
I believe the good quality ones are a worthwhile purchase but cannot recommend the cheap imitation Farmers are flogging off ... especially after I was told by someone who worked there that even at the 50% off price they are still making a good profit on what they import them from China for!

Yep, thats right winnie, in fact Briscoes are the same...people think 60% off is a good deal, however, Briscooes still makes full profit. Bad economics to buy cheap crap.

Briscoes also sell the major brands of electric slow cookers / kettles / irons / grills - 50 - 60% offis pretty good value - just need to wait a few days for their next "sale"!

Their sale prices are more like a normal retail. Only a fool would pay the "regular" retail price on the few days each week they run. Always intriqued as to why the Commerce Comm has not taken them to task over this type of marketing as their sales are so regular that the sale price should now be classed as normal.

This is why they continuously are having sales, they have dug themselves a hole...their sale prices are not like normal retail at all. They are well aware that most customers only patronise them when they DO have a sale.

no shop gives anything away. Of course they still make a profit on their 60 % off.
