Not suitable for dishwasher
I bought this - and the 16cm saucepan - because I liked everything about it from the description, and the previous reviewer said they were fine in the dishwasher.
I don't know why M&S didn't add a note that they are actually not suitable for a dishwasher. There is nothing in the product description online, and there is nothing on the external packaging. But after you unwrap everything, there is a stick-on label on the INSIDE of the saucepan that says they should not be put in the dishwasher.
So I had to return them - very disappointed. They seemed ideal otherwise.

Can't find anything better
Very good for my induction hob. Even heating, fine in dishwasher - no aluminium bits, good weight. I also have james Martin 3 ply but these are not as good and cost more. Two minor things make me give these pans 4 stars not 5 - lid handle gets hot cos the shoulders are too thick where it joins pan so conducts heat, and handle is narrow making it harder to hold. I looked at scanpan and other pans that cost 4 times more but none of them were perfect so went for bargain instead. V good, v good value, got 16cm too, would buy 14cm too but nonstick which inevitably ruins pan and has no lid.
