You know what we love almost more than anything else in the world? Finding a buy that looks like it cost a fortune (and will fool everyone we know) but is actually an absolute bargain

Today’s case in point? Aldi’s copper cookware. It’s nestled there on Aldi’s website, minding its own business, not bothering anyone, and here we are wondering why it’s not been announced as a headline on the 10 o’clock news.

So what’s in the range? There’s a milk pan,  16cm copper saucepan, an 18cm copper lidded saucepan, a copper frying pan and a mini copper Dutch oven. 

With a non-stick coating inside, the pans are also super easy to clean and suitable for use on all hobs including induction. The downside? They are hand wash only. The upsides: their looks, their quality, their quicker heat up time and – as we’ve said – their sneakily low price tags. Gotta love ’em.

Aldi Tri-Copper Pans Review – What’s Good To Do

Home & Garden

The Aldi Tri-Copper pans looked very high quality, such a shine on all of the items. I reviewed several products, the 28cm Saute Pan (RRP: £34.99), 18cm Saucepan (RRP: £29.99), 20cm Saucepan (RRP: £29.99), 24cm Stockpot (RRP: £34.99), 24cm Frying Pan (RRP: £29.99) and the 30cm Wok (RRP: £34.99), all had stainless steel lids except for the Wok and the frying pan. The pans had a measuring gauge inside them that could be very useful.

I tried to find out exactly what each of the products were made of and looked on the Aldi Website for further information.

Visually The Wok, Frying Pan and Saute Pan all  had a non stick coating, the others looked to be stainless steel, I found them out to be aluminium, I found the Aldi website to have very little information,  it stated  that the pans are Tri-Copper pans, the same description were give to some of those that were  clearly coated,  it stated  ‘feature mirror polished outers and satin polish inners,’(the Wok was said to be made of Try Copper and the frying Pan online was said to be made of Try-Ply  Copper and Aluminium, they both however looked the same to me). I found the website to have very little information and was not very clear; I was left a little confused.

I believe that you cannot put copper pans in the dishwasher so rinsed them all by hand prior to use and left them to dry naturally, this left water marks over the previously high sheen pans, so would need to be washed and dried immediately to keep the shiny exterior.

The pans felt heavy, the 20cm Saucepan weighed 1.4kg with the lid on, obviously the bigger pans and wok weighed more but had an additional handle to hold, (you do need it) if you are planning to invest then I would say make sure that you have strong wrists.

Copper pans are generally advertised to heat more evenly and give more control, having researched other copper pans I am led to believe that they heat food/liquid up faster, so would reduce cooking times. I put this to the test and timed the amount of time it took to boil water in the copper pan compared with my own pan of the same size, with the same amount of liquid in it and of course on exactly the same heat.
