"What a wonderful pan, I use Ultra Light Original almost every day, a real top product, thanks" After testing the Ultra Light Professional pan 36 cm : "What a beast of a frypan, that big one! Great!"

"I tested the Ronneby Bruk Ultra Light Original pan and … you've won me! I had never thought I would be so impressed. I'm going to save up fore the whole collection :-). It bakes perfect and morevover I can get the temperature right, using less gas, so I save energy too. I already know what present to give to my daughter once she is going to study and live in rooms."

When the butters foams, add the eggs into the pan, they then stick immediately to the bottom. After 2 to 3 minutes, the eggs come loose. "So says the manufacturer, if it is true you can fry eggs in a deep pan. As, holding the pan in a slanting position, they would then slip out of the pan easily. And... it's true! The frying pan has half the weight, is at least as good, faster hot and yet also suitable for slow stewing. It seems you have better control. It uses less energy and behaves like a thick one. Fascinating that it's possible, so thin "

A small message from Zwolle: I have tested the thin lightweight cast iron wok: really super, fast to achieve the right temperature, good spreading of the heat, virtually not sticking and easy to clean!!! On an open gas flame I found no hotspots! Super!!
EMILE BODE, JOURNALIST / HOUSEWARE PRODUCTS RESEARCHER giving his readers in De TELEGRAAF hot cooking tips.
"Baking they do excellent. Potatoes for example, are ready in no time at all , do not stick to the bottom and get a nice crust. An advantage is that these pans can be put in the oven. With dishes like tarte tatin that is a must."
BIB GOURMAND CHEF, RESTAURANT "ELKAAR" in and RESTAURANT "AALTJE"Bib Gourmand restaurants owned by Chef Gijs Numan, member of the Amsterdam G6 chefs, he and his Chefs state : "Very good pan, we use them quite a lot".
Amir Kheirmand, winner of the "Sweden Master Chef" competition 2014, has started using our new light frying pans. He says he discovered them during the demonstration job he did for Electrolux Home in Sala, and that they are, in his opinion, among the absolute best frying pans he has used.
