The design of the Flare Pan allows it to capture the heat rising from not just under but around it, so it heats up 40% faster than conventional pots.
Thomas Povey, a University of Oxford researcher, teamed up with UK-based manufacturer Lakeland to create these pots and pans using low-cost materials.
While a faster-cooking pan is certainly appealing, all the grooves do make us wonder if it would be a pain to clean?
