Cooking With T- Fal & Jamie Oliver Thermo-Spot Cookware

t-fal-thermo-spot-125-pan1T-Fal cookware such as this T-Fal Ultimate Hard Enamel Fry Pan- Black(12.5″) has the unique Thermo-Spot indicator that lets you know when your pan is perfectly preheated and ready to seal in the flavor of your food.

How often have you ended up with stewed, stringy meat and soggy potatoes simply because the pan wasn’t hot enough to sear the meat and seal in the juices.

When the pan is cold the Thermo-spot pattern is visible in the dark red spot in the middle of the pan.

The pan is perfectly pre-heated and ready for use when the spot turns solid red at approximately 190 degrees.

The non-stick interior gives durable performance for extra heavy use and the Non-stick exterior allows for easy clean up.

For those of you who follow this blog will be aware of the fact that I am a great fan of Jamie Oliver cookware. and have recently purchased the saute pan, breakfast pan and dutch oven.


Jamie Oliver has his own series of TV shows and is the author of The Naked Chef among other great cookbooks.Jamie designed his range of cookware with Tefal to ensure that his followers received

the very best in quality and design.

I wouldn’t be without my Jamie Oliver Cookware.

This  T-Fal Giant 13.5″ Family Fry Pan has:

  • the patented thermospot
  • non stick interior and  exterior
  • handle helper
  • patented metal-safe nonstick coating.

Jamie Oliver Tefal Non-Stick Frypan

I recently brought a Jamie Oliver Professional Series, non-stick Tefal frypan and so far I am delighted with the performance.

I read a number of reviews before I settled on my final choice and considering I was spending around $200 I wanted to be sure I purchased the best my money could buy.

Apart from the obvious choice of the frypan being non-stick there were other features that I was looking for. The pan had to have nice deep sides and the whole frypan including the handle had to be both stove and ovenproof safe.

Some of the features of the Jamie Oliver frypan include:

  • The frypan is made from 18/10 stainless-steel so it resists scratching and warping
  • The metal does not react with foods
  • The pan has a heavy-gauge aluminum core base for superior heat distribution
  • And the metal-safe nonstick coating is safe to use with metal utensils, although I still use my nylon spatula and tongs
  • The frypan has an easy to hold stainless-steel handle

The pan also has a ThermoSpot, whick is Tefal’s unique heat indicator that lets you know when the pan is preheated for cooking.

The frypan is dishwasher-safe and easy to clean and as an added bonus the frypan and handle are oven-safe to 260°C/500°F.

I have read how the non-stick coating can be harmful but this is only if you cook at very high temperatures for any length of time and your food will be well and truly burnt to a crisp by the time your frypan coating starts to release any harmful fumes.

Like most followers of Jamie, I feel he can be trusted and the fact that he has had a great deal of input into his range of cookware makes me feel confident in my choice. He uses his cookware on his current television series and subjects them to some amazing things including putting them in his outdoor oven. He also quite happily uses metal utensils on the non-stick coating.

Since I am so happy with the frypan I am considering buying the skillet.
