Non-stick nonexistent

published

Bought a 5 Litres cassolette. Retailer assured me that the quality was as good as any imported product. Food has stuck from the very first use. Haven't use scourers or harsh chemicals. The slightest food stains have been impossible to shift. So you can imagine any burn marks are like.

Purchased in October 2021 for A$115.00.

Not non-stick

published

I just bought an egg poacher and the quality of the non-stick surface is really poor. 100% stick! The price suggests reasonable quality. Im tired of being ripped off - do not buy!!!

Waited for 6 months before making a review.

Initially I loved it. The non-stick surface worked really well, however after a few months a lot of the non stick coating was starting to come off and the only thing 'stone' about it was the colour. These types of coatings have been found to be carcinogenic, so I chucked it. Off to buy another frypan today and it won't be another pyrostone.

Purchased in January 2021 at Harris Scarfe for A$50.00.

Great when new, didn't last long

published

Rubbish, handle snapped off, became loose quickly and then snapped off. It was a really great product for 3 months, rubbish after that. We bought a Scanpan at the same time and the Scanpan product is still as new.

Purchased in July 2021 for A$60.00.

After two years pyrolux pyrostone is unusable

published

I bought a 26cm and 28cm pyrolux pyrostone frypan in February 2016. I was pleased they came with a lifetime warranty and hoped to use them for many years. It’s now July 2018 and both frypans are unusable in that the non-stick has completely gone. I look after my frypans - I never put them on high or excessive heat and I always wash them straight away. I thought I would contact pyrolux warranties however their phone number said all the lines were busy and someone would get back - then the phone line goes blank. I looked up the website and it says Pyrostone coming soon. What a joke, I’m very disappointed and would advise avoiding all pyrolux products.

Best of the non stick frypans, regardless of cost.

published

I use my frypan every morning to cook tomatoes, and for general cooking. I have tried most of the non stick frypans over the years from cheap to stupidly expensive including Scanpan, Jamie Oliver, Bluestone, Flavorstone and Woll. The Falvorstone was the most non stick, being exceptional in this area, but it is fragile. You cannot let it get very hot and it has a limited life and scratches easily. The Woll lasted a very long time, but was not overly non stick. The Pyrolux has 85% of its non stick, and is better than the others, but outlasted all the others by several years and was much more tolerant to heat, and it is very well made and is my run away recommendation, and non sticky frypans are almost an obsession to me.

Have had them for years now

published

I purchased one pan then another, then an entire set.
I'm so pleased with pyrostone. I feel it does the same job as cast iron but non stick and light weight.

Whilst browsing in my local Corelle store I noticed Pyrostone Pyrolux frypans on sale,so I purchased the baby 20cm.I am impressed so far,as I seem to be buying new frypans every few months as they always burn out.Looks very well made & lets hope it lasts the distance.Cooks great & washes easily.

Great Value but requires basic care

published

I purchased this plan to try and get the BBQ flavour without having to fire up the BBQ in the middle of winter. After several uses and following the basic instructions to build the oil layer this pan is amazing value for the $23 i paid. This is not a basic non stick pan, you need to treat it with some care but doesn't take that much effort for the reward. I bought another within the range!

Came back for more

published

We have recently purchased 2 more saucepans (18 cm, 20 cm) after previously owning a 16 cm for 2 years, it lasted really well so far and has not lost any coating. I have read other reviews about people saying it's not non stick, I'm sorry but i have never found anything that is truly non stick & i thing people are kidding themselves when they believe all the manufacturers sales pitch, most things stick a little. We have had scanpan, frypans and have found then to be terrible, as there surface scratches overtime and they become just as bad as a $30 pan, but you have paid 10 times as much. These pans are not too expensive and so far is still in mint condition.

Best non-stick pan I bought

published
Date PurchasedNov 2016

Not as advertised

published

I finally decided to purchase the Pyrostone frypan after viewing a lot of advertising about non stick cooking on stone products. I was dissapointed that the first time I used it to fry an egg without oil - (as I thought you could do this with a non stick product) that the egg did stick and I had to add oil just to get it off the frypan. I was trying to get healthy -obviously not with this product. I thought that given the price $109 that it would have performed much better. Next time I will read the reviews first before impulse buying.

Best I've ever had.

published

I've had a set of 3 Pyrolux Pyrostone frypans for the last 12 months and they get used a lot. Found them much better tan considerably more expensive ones I've had in the past.
I was advised to use a few drops of oil with them. I've had no problem with them by making sure I don't heat them to a high heat when dry. I test the heat by heating then putting a couple of drops of oil in and seeing if it spreads quickly but does not start to smoke. They are not (and I understand not designed to be) completely non stick, i.e. cook an egg and it will slide out. Also make sure it is cool before washing.

Worse than terrible.

published

I used it to cook eggs, medium heat, they stuck and stuck badly. Do not buy this product or any Pryolux product and do not buy from Victoria's Basement. They refused a refund for this dreadful product.

Not what it says!

published

I purchased a 3 piece set for $165.00 (casserole with lid and large & medium pan). I was also advised and purchased non-stick utensils (recommended in store $50) I didn't use oil or scourers, and used a low heat setting. However after only 3 months the surface has started to peal off and therefore I cannot cook with them as it is not healthy. I returned to the place of purchase but they would not give me a refund.
