Rachael Ray 10-piece Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set
Absolutely perfect cookware set!!!
For no particular reason other than convenience, I purchased an expensive cookware set (SLT) from another shopping network. The metal handles get so hot, I can't pick up the pans without a hot pad, and the interior coating cannot withstand the use of metal utensils (which I didn't know until I got the set home). I then bought a different set advertised by another chef on another cooking channel who shall go nameless (WP) and returned them because the rivets in the pots and pans that hold the handles on bubbled with some kind of white substance when water or another cooking fluid covered them. When I called about the problem, a second set was sent to me that did the same thing. I was told by their customer service to cook with the liquid below the rivets!!! What was I serving my family? I returned the second set, also. Then, I watched QVC's presentation of Rachael's cookware and I bought the set pictured. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! The handles do not get hot, the interiors don't chip and cook evenly and the pots and pans are a dream to wash, no matter what food was cooked!!! The oval pans are GREAT for cooking spaghetti and lasagna noodles. I hope that EVERYONE skips all the missteps that I made and makes a beeline to purchase Rachael's cookware. Like her, they are the BEST!!!
I've been using this set of pots and pans for over six months now. I just love them. These are such a pleasure to cook with. Clean up is a breeze. I know they say you can pop them in the dishwasher, but I prefer to hand wash. I started with a 5 quart covered pan and the 8 quart covered roaster/pasta pot. I loved them so much I had to purchase this 10 piece set. Great tools!
So I got this set for Christmas 2 years ago and I love love love it!! I cook in them everyday and they still look new and they clean so easily. I would highly recommend them in fact I bought my mother a set for Christmas this year and she loves them as much as I do.
Looks Good, But...
I love the shape and array of color options of these pots but was disappointed in the quality. I bought these to replace a set I had for over 10+ years. My old set looks better than this set that I've had less than 18 months. It scratches and dents easily. Going back to my original brad.
Great Set of Pots
I purchased this as a gift for ME with my QVC gift card. Love the way they clean and the way they cook. Great product! Very sturdy and heavy. Oval pots are a cool design for cooking long pieces of meat like pork roasts, or making a meat loaf in them. Browning on the stove and then popping them in the oven to finish cooking is a plus.
The reason for 4 stars.....the handle on the lid gets VERY hot if you over lap the rubber part. It could be made a little larger.
no replacement lids
I HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE HANDLE ON THE 3 QT.OVAL LID. I CALLED RACHEAL RAY DIST. DIRECTLY AND WAS TOLD I COULD NOT BUY A REPLACEMENT FOR MY PAN. THERE WAS'NT ANY REPLACEMENT LIDS FOR THAT PAN. SO NOW WHAT? BUY ANOTHER PAN, OR PUT IT OUT OF SITE. I LOVE HERE PRODUCTS, BUT HER AFTER PURCHASE COMMITMENT IS LAXED.
Worth Every Penny
I love Rachael Ray's hard anodized cookware!!! I have been using it every day for a couple of weeks now and just love it. Everything seems to heat evenly and I absolutely love that the fact that it's dishwasher safe!!! I am still a little uncertain of the oval shaped pans, but I think that has more to do with the fact that I have cooked with round shaped pans all of my life. Takes a little getting used to and it does cause a storage problem. My cookware is stored in 2 big drawers underneath my stovetop and these don't nest with the round pans so I have to store them elsewhere. Only time will tell as to just how long they will hold up, but so far they are great!!!
Have Owned This set For 5 Years Now !!
This is an absolutely amazing set of pans. They cook food perfectly, nothing sticks to them. Just be very careful with the lids when you wash them.. Don't want to break one. They are too pretty
I would recommend this set to anyone without hesitation!
Love these pots & pans!
Scrambling eggs in the pan is unbelievable because they come out so
fluffy and just slide right out of the pan.
I am gonna pay these off and purchase my daughter a set.
THE GREEN is so cool! Different for me who sticks to basic black ALL the time.
purchase and give these. NO REGRETS!
the first time I used the saucepan, the rice boiled over and now the outside of the pan is stained and won't wash off.
Rachael Ray's Anodized Cookware is Amazing!
I received my cookware and was so excited. They are gorgeous, excellent quality and so well made. I ordered the yellow and just love, love, love them. The sizes are wonderful, my husband and I both love to cook, (he's Polish and I am Italian) so they are being used everyday. I have purchased cookware from 2 different chef's and while they are okay, they do not compare in quality and performance. Thank you Rachael, my spices are amazing, my Moppines are awesome, my Cucina Rustica set is great and I take my Grocery totes with me when shopping to keep my items nice and cold until I get home. Each and every product I have purchased from your line, with your name on them have been terrific. I am always excited when they arrive and am never disappointed in any way. I am one of your biggest fans and adore your products, they are the best! Love you & your commitment to quality and making cooking so much fun. Josie, Tucson, AZ
