I remember adding a $200 non-stick pan to my wedding registry. Only the best for me and my kitchen, after all! But that all changed when I had kids.

After my expensive non-stick pan was no longer non-stick and was relegated to the bin, there was no more budget for pricey pans. But who cares, when there’s pan like the Kmart non-stick one, which fans claim are even better than those branded competitors I bought pre-kids.

A friendly Kmart shopper gave us the heads-up about these $13 pans on the Kmart Mums Facebook Group, saying:

“These Kmart non stick pans are awesome,” and included pics of the aluminium frying pans.

Other commenters agreed and one even described the product as “better than a Scanpan” — which costs almost ten times the price.

The pans come in a variety of sizes. There’s the 32cm one priced at $19, while the 24cm one only costs $13.


Fans of the pan say that they distribute heat evenly while cooking and most important clean really easily – which for me is the best quality of these pans.

Some noted that the pan last about a year but this seems pretty good value still.

On the Kmart website, the product is described as having four layers of non-stick coating on the pan and is “PFOA free” — ensuring no dangerous toxins are released when heated up.

I haven’t personally tried the Kmart pan, but I am a massive fan of the Arcosteel Stonehenge brand, available at Woolworths. We bought a 26cm frypan for $25 over a year ago and the pan is still like new. It is a joy to clean, even with messy crusted-on burnt bits.

This one may be slightly more expensive than the Kmart counterpart but I give it a big thumbs up.

  • I bought Stonedine pans over 8 years ago and they still work perfectly. My husband bought a cheaper one from Woolworths as we had to go out of town for his chemo every 2 weeks. We always took the Woolies one and never had a problem. So easy to clean as well


  • What are they coated with, non stick cookware can often be very toxic, I would be worried about it being so cheap that it could wear off quickly and you end up digesting dangerous chemicals.


  • I friggin love kmart! Will have to grab this next time I’m there as my current fry pan is ridiculously heavy!


  • I must look out for these. Need a smaller pan than I currently have


  • I normally buy good quality frypans because the cheap ones never seem to last very long. I’d be interested to know how long these ones last


  • I wouldn’t mind trying one. The cheap ones I normally buy don’t last too long, warping of the bottom being especially bothersome.


  • Oh wow, I may need to buy one soon as my non stick pan is becoming a stick pan.


  • Can’t complain about a $13 pan. Cheap and easy to replace if you needed to as well.


  • I bought a few of the whizz bang expensive ones years ago. A couple of them have been used so much they have lost their non-stick benefit. Think I’ll have to get into K-Mart.


  • Off to Kmart I go. Love a good bargain!


  • Will keep this in mind when my current one wears out


  • I have a similar one but thanks sounds fantastic!


  • I ordered the flavour stone from TV, silly me, fine for the first year, now just as sticky and hopeless as any other pan


  • We have flavour stone from Harris scarce and these Kmart ones. So good even if they don’t last forever you get a good run out of them


  • always good to find a cheap product that preforms well. I know I cant afford the high priced products so this is a great alternative
