Product Reviews
RACO SmartRelease 28cm Open French Skillet is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible This pans are the worst I've ever bought. I bought two of them. I've had the same Raco saucepans for 20 years so thought these frypans would be great too. Everything sticks no matter what we do and we've followed the instructions to the letter. Food stuck from the first time we used them. They are awful to clean as well. Extremely disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burns food, hard to clean Great for the first few weeks then I noticed food was starting to stick in the middle and the colour of the ceramic was darkening. Sent photos to Raco and explained that I had to use increasing amounts of oil to fry foods so that they wouldn’t stick. They told me that my pan was dirty! They wouldn’t replace it. Now many months in- the whole bottom of the pan turns black when I cook steak, sausages, bacon etc. Anything that isn’t sauce based just sticks despite me using more oil than I’ve EVER used to fry with. My suspicion is that it is NOT suitable for all types of cookers and despite frying on the lowest setting, I think the heat of the electric ring element has compromised the elements in the pan. Will be contacting Raco again to see if they will replace under lifetime guarantee this time! I also have the wok and it is going the same way too...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm loving this pan! As soon as I received the skillet my husband had to try it out by cooking bacon! He likes bacon browned and was suprised at how well the pan did this without sticking. He then wiped out the pan with a paper towel and it looked totally unused. I then used it to cook a large omelette, which cooked beautifully with the Reliance Glass Lid, the omelette just slid out of the pan! It's won us both over!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Frypan After buying expensive frypans and having them stick all the time, I thought I would give this Raco fry pan a go. This fry pan is amazing. I highly recommend this fry pan, it's reasonably priced, good to cook with and soooo easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best frying pan ever! I've had my two ceramic lined frypans for about six months and consider them among the best items I've ever spent money on - and I'm only 84! Been cooking for large family for over 60 years, and nothing has been this good till now. Well done Raco!! I am so pleased with these terrific products. Thank you, thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to clean I bought this a week ago and love how easy it is to clean. Just a quick swish with water or a wipe with a paper towel and it's clean. No need to use oils or fats to cook with. The pan seems thin but heats evenly and doesn't burn. I have just used it over a medium heat. I love that the surface doesn't put any nasties in my food while cooking.
