Not particularly geeky, but Countdown supermarkets seem to be quitting out of "Maxwell and Williams" branded pans in a clearance sale. Example is a 32cm frypan, ceramic non-stick coated (ie - not PTFE, but similar to non-stick Scanpan and other "stoneware" sold at high prices). Original retail - about $80, on sale for $40, $10 additional discount with "onecard".
They seem to be quite good quality, solid feel, enamelled underside, ferric insert for induction hobs, claimed "10 year" warranty on the non-stick surface.
I bought one - because at that price it was worth a chance. So far, it's excellent. The non-stick performance is better than the Scanpans I have (some >$300 retail) even when they were new.

Cheers, I've been after a cheap, non stick induction pan for a couple weeks!

Oops my mistake - maker's brand is "Mayfair & Jackson" - not Maxwell and Williams.  I'm not good with Chinese names.

I found it, pan is great value for $28 or so.  Especially since the handle can go in the oven (to 180 degrees C)

Crikey, I had a mouthful of beer when I read that and I nearly lost a screen and a keyboard. Brilliant!

I think you'll find "Buy one, get one" happens at all retail shops - it's the way shopping works. ;-)

"Buy one, get none" of course would be rather unique, but I doubt it would last long. :-)

Just a quick heads up for interested parties. Big Brands Online is a disaster zone in terms of online shopping. i spend 1000's online globally and these guys are in there with the worst I've experienced.

Story so far;

Purchased a gas oven. No conformation or contact of any kind. Deposit funds to their account. No confirmation contact of any kind. Followup a week later and account says tx cancelled. Try to contact them through their phone no luck. Try their live message system and after a fairly long while and several reminders the principle Kirsty Cardy calls back. Item is out of stock and no longer available. Doesn't offer refund but quite a few excuses and blames staff for problems. Offers to replace the order with another brand and will get back to me. Two weeks later still no contact. Leave messages with someone in the office for her to ring me. No reply/response after 48 hrs. So now I'm chasing a refund. I expect this to take some time. Oh and the out of stock item that is no longer available from the supplier is still listed as available. I'm guessing I'm not the only one chasing a refund.

Not a bad deal, given that would give all the content we now can't get via other means (ie, Soho). I'd be keen other than it doesn't include MySky - I don't think we could go back to having to watch 'live' TV! Was there any mention of being able to add MySky (with an additional charge)?
