I bought this product to replace an electric frying plan a some 8 years ago. I had found it very difficult to find one at all and all are of inferior quality. When the new one arrived one of the handles, which are very flimsy was already smashed. Harts replaced it quickly and efficiently though once I had seen it I would happily have paid double for a better quality product. The base is light and flimsy when it should be sturdy befitting a frying pan. The glass lid is nonsensically very heavy. There are 5 temperature settings and I am not convinced, given it's maiden performance cooking dinner last night of the strength or efficiency of the heat control. Finally, it is very difffiicult to clean it without getting the underneath wet. The last one I had which was made of sturdy stainless steel, was happy to be submerged in the sink. This one insists on each being washed with a swish round the inside abd a wiperound the edge on dry land. I await with interests to see how long it lasts..next timeI will have one shipped from the USA where I hear they are sttill a standard in every kitchen.
