The Optimus Terra Pan Set’s neoprene casing can be used to keep cooked food warm while one pot is on the burner. The 1.65 litre pot and frying pan/lid are Teflon-coated and have circular grooves on the base so they grip a stove support better. The 1.70 litre pot is plain aluminium. The plastic pan grip fits and handles all items easily. But there are no volume marks, and other sets include a cup or two. Not giving one pan a non-stick Teflon coating is a drawback.

Verdict: The Optimus Terra Pan Set is a good two-person option, but one of the pans is not non-stick, which is annoying.
