Rated 5 out of 5 by juju22 Lifetime Guarantee is for Real!
First of all I want to thank QVC and customer service for the wonderful experience I had when calling regarding a replacement for my CooksEssential Cookware set. There was no hassle what so ever about it. I purchased an 11pc set back in the nineties and have used it everyday since. When some of the pans the nonstick coating started to wear off I called QVC regarding replacing them. They replaced them promptly with no hassle. I can't say enough about Cook Essential cookware it simply is the best! I have had other brands over the years but nothing compares to Cooks Essential when cooking for a family on a daily basis. Thank you again QVC!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nel_VA BEST WARRANTY & COOKWARE EVER !!!!!
QVC's customer service is the best! I purchased a set similar to this in 2007. it finally wore out on me, and my original set was not available. I called QVC cust service and they sent this set as a replacement out the very next day! I didn't have to return the old set and there was no hesitation. The warranty is real and they honor it 100%. When they say LIFETIME, they mean it! I love cooks essentials products! QVC & Cooks Essential have me as a customer for life! If you are serious about cooking and want cookware made with great quality, Cooks Essentials is the way to go!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful for everything Feels Sturdy-Stainless is Nice-Non Stick is great!
I am very pleased with this set of Cookware. This set includes Exactly the pots & pans I use. The Stainless looks like a professional is cooking (lol) and the nonstick is my preference as I prefer to handwash and cleaning is a breeze! These are sort of a weighty set which makes me feel it is sturdier and made to last. So many sets these days are pretty but so thin and cheaply made. CooksEssentials did not skimp on these.
They do NOT have pour spouts but that is unimportant to me. The Lids are NOT vented but again..not important to me as I just tilt the lid a little..The Handles are curved to fit your hand and are substantial, not flimsy, as these are sturdier, weightier pots/pans than some. I suppose those sorts of extra features would be nice but I would imagine the price would obviously be higher then. If you are "less strong" than most or are very arthritic in your hands, this will probably not be your favorite set. I would imagine the weight is due to construction that includes thicker stainless for better even heating and better structure on the sides of the pots/pans for long lasting service and less likely to dent and ding.
This seems like such a quality set..heavy duty..attractive..well made.. but fortunately for me..priced like the cheaper lower quality sets you find at your local big discount stores.. Way to go Cooks Essentials!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Thank you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by groover fantastic set
i ordered this set of CooksEssentials as a wedding gift. I have been using my set of CooksEssentials Stainless Steel cookware since the 1990's, and am still using it. I have given sets to my two sons, and several nieces for wedding gifts. It is my go to gift for weddings, because I love it so much. Over the 20 plus years, I have had a couple of pieces replaced, and it has been no problem to do so. I highly recommend this cookware. I love it and am happy to recommend it to friends and family. It holds up very well. I would like to see QVC add the utensils as part of this set.

I've used cooks essential cookware for years and it was time to replace some pieces but I'm disappointed in this set. I find the handles very awkward to hold while draining liquid from the saucepans.
