K7569 - Cook's Essentials Hardcoat Enamel II 2-pc. Skillet Set,Lid
Too shallow to use lids
I was disappointed in the very shallow depth of these pans. The lid sinks down so far into the pan that it ends up sitting on top of the food. The nonstick surface is good, and the pans are just fine for small, thin items like fried eggs, pancages, etc. But, it is impossible to use the lid for cooking anything like skillet dinners. And the pans are so shallow that I always end up with food all over my stovetop when I stir. I did not return these, and I use them for fried eggs, but I would not recommend these to a friend.
Purchased this set even after reading reviews about the shallowness of the pans and lack of depth when the lid is on. Loved the concept of the universal lid but when placed on the pans, the design took away cooking depth in the pan and the pans were shallow to begin with. Sent them back. Ordered the square pans with universal lid which have a much better design. Love the color choices.
Lids not convenient
I bought these for my son to add to some other Cooks Essentials red enamel cookware he has (he needed skillets) but the lids dip down in the middle so that there is little or no space for food. He was disappointed in the lids. Lids need to be reconfigured.
I'm familiar with Cook's Essentials and bought this set in aqua with no reservations. I was disappointed in this set because the pans were quite shallow and even though the dimensions were given on the set, it was hard to tell just how high the sides were. Another disappointment was the universal lid. It did, indeed fit both pans but the lid was quite concave in order to accommodate the two different fry pans and therefore the middle of the lid sagged practically to the surface of the fry pans.It hit the food in the pan. I'm not sending the set back because I can still use it for some things. They cook well, good cleanup and look great and the aqua is very beautiful but I won't purchase it again nor will I recommend it to a friend.
I USE THIS SET ALMOST EVERY DAY. IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES TO USE AND I LOVE THE COLOR. IT IS STURDY AND THE LID IS A WONDERFUL ITEM AS WELL. WHEN WE SOLD OUR OLD STOVE, I FORGOT AND LEFT ALL MY LIDS IN THE DRAWER. SO THIS LID IS A MUCH USED PIECE IN MY KITCHEN.
I use these all the time!
The lid with the auto feature does a great job and fits so many of my pans. The fry pans are fantastic. I have several different kinds of cookware, and I make the very best eggs in these pans. I use all three pieces so often, they're a bargain. Don't hesitate. You'll love how they perform, and the lid is very useful. The glass window is helpful. I only wish there was more of a dome in the lid because sometimes the lid touches the food. But it's no big deal. Love the aqua!
Good pans but not the lids
THESE PANS ARE GREAT---BUT THE LIDS ARE NOT QUITE RIGHT-NOTHING VERY THICK CAN BE COOKED WITH THE LIDS.What happened?Gave them as gifts and they liked the pans but not the lids.two and a half stars.
Best Best Best !!!!
This is absolutely the best skillet I have ever purchased! My husband and girls don't like to "cook" but since I bought this they don't ask me to cook for them they do it themselves. And that is worth the purchase of this skillet by far. Nothing sticks; no oil or butter needed. Wipes right off with papertowel. Definately a cooks "essential". !!!
These are nice pans. I use the smaller one all the time for eggs. I love the lid, I use it with all my pots and pans.
They reeled me in and I am HOOKED!!! I love Cook's Essentials, Technique, Temp-tations, etc. I have bought so many things I need a new kitchen to go with them!!
You can always use an extra skillet or two and these are perfect! The universal lid is just that. Seems to work on several of my other pans. (I use this even on some that have another lid because of the smart knob)
I have a mix of QVC products in my kitchen and love the "eclectic" but harmonious look of them all together.
To anyone skeptical about the metal utensil safe non-stick interior........doubt no more!!!
It truly works beautifully and is everything they say and more!! This cookware cooks evenly, great cleanup and you can't beat the price for this quality!
Thanks to Bob, Meredith and Jenny for all the cooking tips you share when you are on. Love watching you all!!!
These are very nice pans for the price and the lid is so universal it will fit many other pans. Highly recommend.
the size is great forever day use and the pans and lid are good cook wear
