1.0 out of 5 starsConcave tawa and misleading weight claims
21 November 2018
I found two problems with this tawa:- 1) This is not a flat tawa as claimed.It is concave with a dip in center.(See video attached)
2)The weight of the tawa on Amazon is misleading.I found actual weight to be ~1.39kgs.The product description offers multiple weights at multiple places which are package weights and not tawa weight.This is outright misleading to the consumer.Weight is one of the most important factor while buying the dosa tawa as it indicates how heat will be distributed across the surface.
Make an informed decision for yourself.I have attached a video if they ever allow it to be published.
This is the conditions of so called mentioned High quality nonstick 28cm dosa tawa in just 8 months. It's mentioned 2 years guarantee, but from 3rd month only it will start showing it's fake quality. Even after taking all d precautions of use (like *wash it when it's completely cold with d given scrubber only, * don't heat it more thn mentioned minutes on high flame * do not use cold water when surface is hot etc etc) Clearly coating flakes are coming out and sticking to dosa if be in use which can leads to serious health issues. So overall i can not use it. Now the question is who will replace it ? Amazon or Hawkins as return date is already passed from Amazon side and Hawkins never picked my call. It's very pathetic evn after spending huge amount can't get good product with responsibility of guarantee/warrantee.
Its like the tawa, one I never used before. Again an excellent product from Hawkins. DO NOT USE steel scrubber to clean DO NOT USE steel spoons/items to cook over it. Once you finished cooking clean the surface with a tissue paper and you won't be able to tell that it was even used. Must buy. Suitable for Roti dosa and other flat surface cooking
I bought this for my father who was told to control his oil intake. Initially when I told the price of the product my mom was not happy, she thought I had wasted money but after using it she understands that quality comes at a price. She is very happy to make oil free dosa now
Till now No complaints, It heats up fast and I can make larger parathas and rotis. Haven't made dosa till now, But will try it soon. I know there will be no such problem as its large and heavy tawa. Just small concern, WILL IT LAST? Hop so it does, I will abide by all the rules stated to keep this tawa running in my kitchen for years to come. Fingers crossed.
As of now the product seems to be excellent no complaints yet. Made uttapam and Dosa came out crispy also everybody liked it. And Yes, care needs to be taken in respect of cleaning to maintain the quality of product for long term.
The pan has a good weight to it and allows good distribution of heat. It appears to be durable and looks very premium. The handle feels sturdy and has not caused any problems yet. Works great for making them dosas and parathas.
The pan is accompanied by a wooden spatula, a scrub and a recipe book. Comes with a 2-year warranty. It also comes with care instructions card to make sure the coating is not damaged easily.
Overall have bought other Hawkins products as well and the experience has been wonderful.
