Anolon has been manufacturing pans since the 1940s and they have a long history of innovation. Always looking for the best materials and advanced technology, the company aims to create cookware that is durable and long-lasting. From griddles to frying pans and woks, Anolon has a wide variety of cookware that will suit all your needs in the kitchen. 

Features

These Anolon frying pans come in two really convenient sizes: 9.25-Inch and 11.75-Inch. They feature a premium triple-layer non-stick coating and hard-anodized aluminum in their construction that makes them heavy-duty and very durable. The triple-layer nonstick coating resists scratches and makes cooking a breeze. Clean up is really easy, as the pans can be cleaned in the dishwasher. What’s more, these pans can be used in the oven up to 500°F. The pans are suitable to use on most hobs, except induction.

Quality

The pans are expertly made with a hard-anodized aluminum with dishwasher-safe clear coat exterior and a triple-layer premium-quality nonstick interior. While the materials are of great quality, the construction itself does not feel heavy-duty to customers, some of whom have reported that the pans warp and do not sit flat on the stovetop. The handles are made from triple-riveted SureRest stainless steel that offers even more support and stability. Customers are very satisfied with the performance of the nonstick coating, claiming that nothing sticks and the pans are really easy to clean. 

Ergonomics

Both frying pans in the set have ergonomic stainless steel handles that feature a finger notch that offers extra support and stability when using the pans. The handles are attached to the pans using three screws, which make them even more stable and safe. 

Value

This set comes with two nonstick frying pans (9.25-Inch and 11.75-Inch sizes) and is a great value-for-money option for every kitchen. 

Durability

Anolon offers a lifetime warranty on its products and uses premium materials and specially designed construction for best results. The pans are designed to last and most customers are very happy with their purchases, saying that they perform really well even after many months of use. 

PROS:

  • The pans are made from premium materials with a triple-layer nonstick coating
  • They are oven-safe and dishwasher-safe
  • They come with a really sturdy handle with a finger notch for extra stability

CONS

  • Some customers have reported that the pans warp and do not stay flat on the hob surface
  • The pans are not suitable for induction hobs 

RATING: 4 out of 5.

Verdict

A really versatile and durable frying pan set made with high-quality materials and a really good triple-layer nonstick coating. They are easy to use and easy to clean and will be very useful in any kitchen. These pans are value-for-money as you get two really high-quality pans for a good price.

Advanced Frying Pan Set

Anolon 82074 Advanced Hard Anodized Nonstick Frying Pan Set / Fry Pan Set / Hard Anodized Skillet Set - 10 Inch and 12 Inch, Gray
  • DURABLE CONSTRUCTION: Hard-anodized construction provides efficient, even heat distribution
  • PREMIUM NONSTICK: High-quality, metal utensil safe nonstick delivers superior food release and effortless cleanup
  • COMFORT AND CONFIDENCE: The Anolon SureGrip handles offer a solid, comfortable grasp and are dual riveted for strength

Anolon is known for the advanced technology they use in their cookware. Their signature triple-layer nonstick coating on both the interior and the exterior of their pans makes them durable and easy to clean. This set of frying pans from the Anolon Advanced collection has many attractive features and is a good starter for someone who is not as experienced in cooking. 

Features 

The pans are made with durable hard-anodized construction and feature a triple-layer high-quality nonstick coating on both the interior and exterior. This makes cleaning really easy even if there are food splatters on the exterior of the pans. Their high sides and flared rims make them really versatile for all sorts of cooking, one customer even mentioned using the pan like a wok. Furthermore, the pans are oven-safe up to 400°F, which makes them good for a wide variety of recipes. 

Quality:

The pans are advertised as having a premium, triple-layer nonstick coating that is safe to use even with metal utensils, but customers have complained that the coating scratches easily and does not last long. The pans are not dishwasher safe and some customers claim that they warp and don’t sit flat on the stovetop. 

Ergonomics

The Anolon SureGrip stainless steel handle with silicone padding is dual riveted for more strength and has a comfortable heatproof grasp for easy cooking. However, customers mention that it is rather narrow and does not help when holding the pan to clean it. 

Value

These two pans measure 10 and 12 inches and are a very cost-effective option, great for someone who is stocking their kitchen and needs essential items. 

Durability

Most customers are satisfied with the performance of these pans after many months of use, though there are some who report that the non-stick coating scratches and starts to peel off or that the pans warp and show wear and tear. The pans are apparently not as durable as advertised. In any case, Anolon does offer Lifetime Warranty on their products, which is an advantage.

PROS:

  • Triple-layer premium nonstick coating on both the interior and exterior of the pans 
  • High sides and flared rim
  • Very friendly price 
  • Oven safe 

CONS: 

  • Not dishwasher safe  
  • Not suitable for induction hobs
  • The quality is not as good as advertised, with the pans showing scratches and warping after use

Rating: 3 out of 5

Verdict

These pans have several attractive features, such as the nonstick coating on both the interior and exterior, the high sides and flared rim, and the silicone padded stainless steel handle. However, customers have mentioned various problems with quality and durability which would make anyone looking to buy them think twice. With their really good price, they would make a good starter set for a newcomer in the kitchen but might not be a good choice for a seasoned chef.
