IKEA Pots and Pans: SKÄNKA


The SKÄNKA set for $39.99 comes with 2 pots with lids (2qt and 5qt), a saucepan (1qt) and frying pan (11″ diameter).
Both lids have holes in them so that you can drain the water if you need to after boiling something. However, the lid for the larger one is the only one that has a locking lip so that the lid doesn’t come off when you tip the pot – a nice feature. All of them are treated with Teflon® Select, which is a hardwearing non-stick coating that allows cooking with little fat and makes the cleaning process a lot more easy. However, I have been told by some that Teflon coating causes cancer. I dunno if that is just a myth or if it’s true.

All in all, it’s a good set. You get the basic cookware so that you can do most cook.
