    Thank you, Mr Svartnik. Could you give me the rule how to do it. I'm confused because my grammar book writes:
    opinion + size + shape + age + colour + origin + material + temperature + application. And I can see that this rule doesn't work.

    brand-new, French-made, Tefal non-stick frying pans.

    opinion/observation + size + shape + age + colour + origin + material + temperature + application.

    Tefal is part of 'origin' and so precedes 'frying pan' (since Tefal may also make non-coated pans - this is one of the coated products, 'a Tefal non-stick pan.'
