About Us

The Frying Pan is PLUS Online Stores' 10th website. As always, our aim is to offer first-quality products that last. Frying pans, particularly traditional non-stick frying pans are notorious for chipping and peeling. We finally threw away our cheap Jamie Oliver Tefal after a few months (having been unable to resist a bargain buy in the first place!) and invested in a Swiss Diamond. What a difference! It was a revelation. So as a result, here is a web site bringing you the best frying pans, saute pans, woks and griddle plates we can find. Our sister site offers that complimentary sauce pans, stockpots, food steamers, casseroles etc in each brand.

We offer a high level of personal, customer service - here are some examples:

  • delivery details given in advance
  • no payment taken before stock is assured or if there is a delay, before a customer has agreed to wait
  • high level of product knowledge and product details on our sites- you are welcome to phone if you have any queries
  • key financial information automatically deleted once an order is completed
  • all warranties and guarantees listed - and we will help you to activate them if you need to

Please call us on 01363 881174 . Full address and contact details are at the bottom of the page. You can ask to speak to Claire Hodgson, Laura Robinson or Nick Mahoney.

I ordered a Swiss Diamond frypan around 14:30 on 06/08/12. The item was delivered at 08:20 on 08/08/12, what fantastic service! Had no chance to try the item as yet but if it's cooking qualities are half as good as your customer service I have made the right choice. Well Done! Alan S.09/08/2012

"I'm happy with the products and service that I have received from your company. On my first visit I was nervous about doing business with an unknown firm, but I found it easy to do business with you. So far I have placed a couple of orders for Staub pots as gifts for friends and for myself and everything has met my expectations. I appreciate the fact that I get a telephone call from a real person to let me know how long my order will take. I think you might win people’s trust if there were a more up-front message about the family run business that’s behind the sites. At the moment, you bury that story behind the "About us" link in the footer of the page." Jonathan B 08/04/2010
