Saturday morning comes along and everyone feels like a nice big fry-up.
Crispy bacon, Cumberland sausages, fried eggs, grilled tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, baked beans and maybe even some fried potatoes. Sounds like the ideal weekend breakfast.
But a plate full of seven different types of food means each of those foods will have to be cooked somewhere, i.e. you also have seven different pans to wash.
So you finish your relaxing breakfast only to find that your kitchen looks messy enough to give your child's Wednesday cooking class at school a run for its money.
Well, what if we told you that you could have all the food but without any of the washing up – sounds impossible right? Maybe not.
Bargain supermarket Lidl has released a multi-section frying pan so that you can whip up everything all in one piece of kitchenware – no need for the surplus washing up.
Their Ernesto Multi-Section Frying Pan is made of high-quality material with a non-stick coating, so you can avoid nasty marks and stuck on food.
Anyone can get in on the fun, as it’s suitable for all types of hobs, even induction, and it’s dishwasher safe so you can avoid the washing up altogether.
And it’s not just good for making fry-ups, you could use it for all sorts of meals – try a steak with veg and potatoes or a stir fry in one section with a piece of fish to top in the other.
The chore-saving pan comes in at only £12.99 and is available in store from Thursday 9th August. But you better get in there quick, as it’s on a limited time offer and only in stores as long as stocks last.
Of course, if you miss out there are other models on the market, especially after Tom Daley made the pan Instagram-famous back in 2016. His original Lakeland model is no longer on sale, but different styles are available on Amazon, eBay and Groupon.
Though Lidl’s version still comes out the cheapest by far, so you might want to get down there quick - before the shelves are swept clean and you’re lumbered with the washing up again.
