Well guys thanks for all the advice. In the end my choice surprised me... I went for the Tefal Ingenio Stainless Steel set from Amazon UK (big saving vs CH) and I added a couple of extra handles at crazy cheap prices (literally around 30% of the swiss price per handle) as they were on sale for £11. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008P6YWM8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 So, what made me choose them? Reviews are universally fantastic across all consumer websites. People praise the build quality and even heating. The space saving stacking design is phenomenal and will make a huge difference to my cluttered pot cupboards. Not only that but you can whack it in the oven or fridge without worrying about any handles taking up space. I will then choose either other items from the Ingenio range and will be free to choose other more premium or specialist products for things like Saute pans and woks. The plan is to only use non-stick pans for things like eggs, or maybe I'll just buy a cast-iron skillet and learn to season it like the pros. Thanks for the detailed feedback on the Stellar pans guys much appreciated!
