CooksEssentials 12-piece Cookware Set w/ Color Smart Nonstick
Peels, Scratched, Disappointing
Got this set in Copper about two years ago and it is poor condition already! The inside is peeling and all scratched up. Total let down...asking for new pots and pans for Christmas. Really like shopping with QVC but this was a super disappointment.
recommend with a BUT regarding CooksEssentials
I love the pots and pans, the lids etc. BUT within the first use of the sauce pan the coating chipped and I only use plastic and only hand wash these. I'm into my fifth month of these and more items started scratching. The warranty is VERY unclear as to coverage of this type of problem so I haven't tried yet.
I can only assume this problem would extend to their other cookware also.
If this is the same set I ordered a year or so ago, dont bother trying it. I bought the copper set and the outside peels off and the inside was scratched/marred a month after I bought it. I use plastic utensils only, but it made no difference. I still use them but not with company here, cause they look sooooo bad. I have owned 3 sets of cooks essentials and this will be my last. Somehow over the years their quality has gone down hill. I am now looking at other brands!!
I love this set. The only suggestion I would make is not to lock the lid on the big pot during cooking. only if you need to drain. I was locking mine and the heat from cooking caused the lid to swell and scratch the sides where it locks in. Works really great with my induction burner.
I use these all the time and it is a wonderful set of pans. Plus a great price and easy pay was awesome!
bought the pots thinking it would be non-stick..but the inside welds of the handles are not...therefore, the food stuck to them..also, the handles get hot you need pot holders..sorry to say I'm not happy with my purchase..
Love this cookwsre
I bought these for a vacation home and ended up keeping them at our main house.
We love them more than our set that cost three times as much
CooksEssentials 12-piece Cookware
I bought this set in blue and my sister got it in green. they were both very beautiful colors. i have been using them for almost a month now and i love them. the color is still beautiful. i use wood and plastic utensils and they have no scratches in them i use them everyday. and they clean up so easy so far no food that i have made in them has stuck not even food left in them overnight. i also use alot less oil and butter when cooking. so glad i got them. the best cook set i have ever bought.
Poor Quality Cookware Set.
Our experience with the CooksEssentials 12-piece Set was ok during the first month of cooking, but the quality did not last after a couple of more months of cooking on the stove top. We followed directions on cleaning and how to cook on the stovetop but we noticed dings then scratches were hard to avoid as the non stick surface of each pot and pan diminished. They also became hard to clean after a while. I would think it over before purchasing this set. If anything I would recommend anything from Emeril's cookware collection.
OK with Reservations
Cooks food well and cleans up like a dream - on the inside as advertised, Unfortunately, after just a few uses the outside and bottom became very soiled, I believe with grease, and nothing takes off the marks. Now the cookware already looks old.
very poor coating
I have been mostly very satisfied with all QVC purchases, but with this cookware I have to tell you im very disappointed, the coating started to chip right away, not good, didn't listen to the previous reviews and regret it!!!! don't bother buying
Paint stated to chip
i paint started to chip - that never happen to me on cheap pots that i brough
