Acroflam Saucepans
Rhonda
09/09/09
I have recently broken the smallest saucepan from a set of three - I still have the lid !!
They are white table to oven casserole/saucepans.
Any idea who can supply these - made in France by Arc international.
I live in Paphos Cyprus in the Meditterean.

These sound like our corning ware sauce pans. What size is it, and is it round or square?
ellen

If you do a google search, using ARCOFLAM as well as ACROFLAM, you will see there are a variety of sales points available for these, some European.

There are a couple of Ebay/UK sites that ae selling Arcoflam, but shipping international is costly. Arcoflam discontinued many of its smaller saucepans in 2007. So, happy hunting. I live in Minnesota, USA. (I am searching also.)

I owned one round casserole dish by Arcoflam. It was a favorite until it accidentally broke. I haven't found anything comparable because it was attractive, lightweight, easy to clean. Suggestions?

Can someone tell me how to work the Arcoflam removable handles? I put one on my pot and cannot get it off. There is a little red push button on it. I am afraid to try anything too forcefully for fear of breaking the lovely and treasured pot. I had never before used the handle and decided to do so - and ended up in a mess! When I got it there were no instructions or anything with it. I hope someone can help me. Thank you.

you need to press the button but make sure saucepan is on a secure surface, they just un-clip
david mills

forgot to mention do not grip handle tightly as this will prevent spring lever from releasing

I can see I am not the only one looking for Arcoflam products. They've always been my favourite brand. I was fortunate enough to buy what I was told to be the last pieces that were left in the whole country (Canada ). I thought the salesman was joking and I only bought what I actually needed at the time: two pots and two saucepans. Now I know he was speaking the truth and I am sorry I did not buy everything he had left. Not only I am looking desesperately for anything with the Arcoflam logo on it, but I have been going to I do onot fkow how many stores in France together with three of my French girlfriends... So far, no luck.Would canyone advise me if such treasures are found anywhere? I,Ll do the same if I come across anything bearing that name. THANKS.

It's a shame with so many poeple wanting the acroflam pots, that someoen doesn't re-invent them. I am vision imapaired and love the whilte inside cos I can see the food in it very cleraly. Of course I love their other features as well. I'm in NZ and no one makes things like that hear. I have seen whitle dishes here, but no handles on them. My 8.5" pot has lost it's whitle non-stick surface on the bottom - does anyone know if these can be re-surfaced? from Kathryn

Tivoli, which is made in China, has a white enamel interior. It is not fully non-stick, but if treated kindly (medium high heat or lower, a little oil or PAM/non-stick spray) provide the white cooking surface some readers prefer.

Hi. Am wondering if these can be used on ceramic cooktops or just the coils? I am told it can be used on gas but mine is a ceramic cooktop. Thanks in advise for your advise.
ellen

Presently, most ceramic top makers suggest not using the ceramic pans on the tops, as the pans do not conduct heat like the metal pans do.

Acroflam Cookware
Yes, I also have some ArcoFlam pieces, and I love them to death, love the fact that you can bring them to the table minus the handle, as serveware. Having a double duty, and not having to take food out of a cook pot and put it in a serving dish is the best thing ever!! And if I could find any ArcoFlam, I'd grab it fast!

I loaned my sister my Arcoflam, 25 years ago, promising to return it when I had a home and a nice kitchen. She no longer knows where it is, I found the large fryer at my Mom's and 6 handles and 2 large lids at my nephews. I do not have my pots anymore and I am so sad, I really wanted it back for my new kitchen makeover. Never loan anything to a sister that does not have enough responsibility to take care of your items, and call you a indian-giver when you ask for it back. I would love a few pots. Please let me know where to find them if anyone knows. Thank you.
ellen
04/14/14
Gina, there isn't a pot in the world worth losing a sister over.

That said, you can still find these vintage on EBay from time to time. It is also currently being made in France by ARC, International; purveyors of other ARC-centric glassware goods such as Cristal d'Arques (crystal), Luminarc (transparent), Arcoroc (tempered) & Arcopal (opal) and yes, Arcoflam (vitroceram) cookware.

Can anyone advise please how to remove burned on food from one of my Arcoflam saucepans. Can I use stainless seel wool on them as nothing has shifted it. None of the instructions with the pots are in English so no advice there.

Many thanks.

ellen
08/06/14
Bad luck, and steel wool will scratch pans. Have you tried a half cup baking soda, fill with water, and simmer an hour or two? Also consider several applications of Dawn power scrubber- can help on some.

If you will look on EBay you can get a range of prices. Decide whether to include shipping- not cheap for this set.

Hi. Have acquired Acroflam pot set and casserole. Are these treated as normal pots? Read somewhere that can roast potatoes on hob with no need of water. Unable to find out much about how to use them. Would appreciate direction of where I can obtain this information. Thanks
ellen
12/13/14
These are casseroles. The new ones are not recommended for glass top stoves.

Use heat at medium high or lower heat, NEVER cook with them dry, and they ate terrible for any kind of frying or sauteing.

Arcoflam pot
Hi, my sister was so kind to give me her Arcoflam pot and pan set she bought 21 years ago, they are like new. The courier company mishandled the box and broke the Pot with a nr 7 on the bottom, it is the second smallest pot in the set. It seems that these sets are scares in South Africa, any ideas, I googled ARC int, but didn't get any results, checking ebay as well

Hi
I inherited a set of glass arcoflam pots and pans from my mum and my stuff was moved in my absence and all but one are now broken I'd like to replace them I liked them in the brown they were in and also just the fact that I cud see everything as it cooked... Any idea where I can get them the arcoflam doesn't seem to exist anymore anyone who can help with contacts or something for the manufacturer? Or selling theirs... These pots and saucepens were so elegant I thought and I liked the idea of a casserole dish which could also be used as spot on gas or electric stove.... Though I'd never tried them in the microwave.... Could one use them in the microwave too...? Anyway I just really need those pots my heart is bleeding ryt now... I'm prepared to ship them in from anywhere in the world... I'm in Botswana Africa... Please help....

Hi, I have a virtually a new entire set, I think its complete, including the Fry pan with the huge bubble/dome lid! and a most of another set that has had moderate use, also including the Fry pan with the huge bubble/dome lid!
I'm a Chef, and I have collected a lot of pot-ware and I find that I use my copper and Enameled cast iron and heavy stainless the most, I find myself in the position of needing to downsize for an upcoming move back to the South Island, its a year away , so I'm stating with these ! because they are so cool ! as you all know , you can use the same pot for virtually any type of cooking.
I am going to put them on trademe soon, maybe two weeks time.
But I came across this forum a minuet ago and thought one of you may be keen, It would have to be a pick up, I wouldn't send them, I'm In Palmy
Unfortunately I cant upload a pic on this forum,any ideas ? as to where I could put one up.
