The quirky colour makes these purse-friendly pans aesthetically appealing (with other vibrant tones also available). Practically, they are on par with the Argos Home set, with all the same benefits (stay-cool handles and handy glass lids) – it’s just that you get two more for your extra tenner and they are also induction friendly.
