Optimus Terra Pan Set 2009

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.
