Why Stahl Versatil?
To be true I haven’t personally used any other clip on cookers but when this model was first introduced as usual I was just researching the model in shops / online though I had no idea of buying it. That is when I had a have a glance of it in my neighbours house and came to know that she was not satisfied with the model. So when I got an opportunity to review Versatil I was a little hesitant but when they told me to write a honest review I readily accepted it.
There may be many of you with a question there are other clip on cookers available in the market Why Stahl? and here is the answer:
- The main difference of this clasp on cooker comes in the lid. The Versatil clasp on lid is so smooth to operate which makes it stand a class part from other brands.
- The pan is very elegant and classy looking also works perfectly as a cookware too. You can cook and serve it.
- The cooker weight is placed away from the clasp arrangement in Stahl (left pic) which makes cooking mess free and go for years maintenance free. Other clip on options available in the market come with the weight on the clip-on lid(right pic) making the cooker messy, hard to maintain and clogs the mechanism within months of use.
The clasp on mechanism on the lid makes the lid a bit heavier however it is not a setback. Given the easiness of the clasp on, the heaviness is not a factor to consider at all.

Sharmis Passions on Stahl
This was such a surprise for me to see Sharmis Passions beautifully engraved on the cooker. This is my first personalised piece of cookware that I have received. Thank you Stahl for this!
During my initial days when I started cooking I found cooker handling particularly opening and closing of the lid difficult and am sure everyone could have come experienced it. With this Stahl Versatil clasp on, beginners in cooking will feel cooking a breeze and joy.
Used for cooking, frying, steaming etc.
The cooker can be easily converted into a cookware by using the glass lid. I used it for making popcorn and as it has a heavy base it was perfect for popping corn. Deep frying can also be done as the base is flat the frying is even.
Perfect for cooking rice dishes like biryani, pulao, one pot dishes or curries or gravies or everyday stir fries too.
