Having been let down AGAIN by Amazon, who managed to lose yet another order, I am looking for an oven-proof frying pan. Can anyone recommend where we might buy one reasonably locally?

I bought one a year or so ago from WMD on Apostolou Pavlou Avenue ( Opposite SunCentre/Cosmic Bowling )

I don't know anywhere "local" to you up there so you may need to have a drive into Paphos

I have three such frying pans which I bought from Ikea. They are not cheap, averaging about EUR30 each. However, they are of excellent quality on the hob as well as in the oven. If you follow the instructions with them, they will last for nearly ever. I am delighted with them.

Thanks to you all. My wife has, unfortunately, just discovered the Lakeland website and is busy on one of those “Oh, we could do with one of those, and have you seen ...”

Take that as a bonus that you dont have to traipse around half of Cyprus to find one now although your card may have an alternative idea :lol:

What is an oven-proof frying pan? Or, rather, why?

I think that its one that the handle doesn't melt, all metal I would have thought

Quite often we cook on the top of the stove, add a topping and put it into the oven (or under the grill) to finish. Our last frying pan has a lovely melted handle - hence the oven-proof request.

Oh to melt cheese, that sort of thing? That makes sense.
