Rachael Ray 13-piece Gradient PorcelainEnamel Cookware Set
Rachael Ray Cookware set
My wife really loves how the cookware looks and operates. The oval stock pot cooks corn on the cob without having to break ears in half. The griddle pan works well for grilled cheese sandwiches late night. We bought this product to replace the heavy worn out set we had so that we could display on our new rack over our kitchen island.
I purchased these in 2011. These pans were good until the nonstick started peeling on my pasta pan. For as expensive as they are this should have never happened. Suggest QVC not sale these until this problem is fixed because I see other reviews have the same issue.
Unexpectedly poor quality.... Disappointing
I usually am not the person to buy because of a celebrity name; however, these seemed to have an innovative design. Unfortunately, the durability was not what I expected. This was a bigger purchase for me and I intended to keep these for a long time so I handled them with great care!!! I love the dishwasher but these were hand washed every time (even though my poor husband got annoyed). I used only wood or plastic utensils and they still like look all scratched up. Then one I used solely for boiling and the coating is still peeling all around the top of the pan. Very disappointed :(
worst purchase ever
the lining of the pots and pans are peeling. I ahev nothing else to say except i love the color of the set.
flat large skillet
I am not one to do reviews but had to in this matter. I purchased this set back in 12/2012 and after just a few months the flat large skillet's bottom just became uneven;to say, making it difficult to cook evenly. I have a flat electrical stove. The covers are also hard to clean around the edges grim just get stuck in it.
The handles get hot which is annoying. I knew when I purchased this set that it was hand wash only. I regret not buying a set that is dishwasher safe.
catch to limited warranty
I purchased this set two years ago. The only problem I had is with non stick coming off the griddle. I called RR company for a replacement. They would replace it at my expense of packaging and mailing. No thank you. It's almost cheaper to buy a new one.
Try again... Poor Quality Cookware
Steamer attachment worked great. Cooking utensils are perfect size (large) and handles heavier food very well! Color chips VERY easily on cookware. Pot and Pan started to peal away from rim after a few baked dishes.
This cookware is awesome! I wish it had came with a big chicken fry pan and lid !
DREAM COME TRUE!!!
This is my second set of cookware from Rachael. I recently renovated my kitchen and bought a new 5 burner stove which has a center oval burner! So how wonderful is it to have 2 big pans just for this burner, and they are perfect! Not to fat so I am still able to utilize all the other 4 burners. The set is amazing all pieces I never had before from my previous set!! Dream come true!!
Color bleeds with every wash!
While these pots cooked food well and certainly looked beautiful when they came out of the box, the color started fading almost immediately. I purchased the red set, and with every wash, these pots became duller, and every time they were hand-dried, my towels were stained red when I was finished. This is not a high quality product at all, unless you like stained towels and faded colors.
So Happy With This Set!
Got on TSV, but was on waitlist for the apple green. Received the day before Thanksgiving! Awesome, right? Color gradient is subtle. The green matches my RR Bubble N Brown. I appreciate that it's light weight, no need for a hernia. EVERYTHING that I've cooked in these has come out perfectly. Really cooks evenly! Love the oval shape, especially in 8 quart. (I'm short like RR and can now look into 8qt pot). Great for spaghetti recipes. The best part of all, is that cleaning is a snap. One month and two holidays later, they still look brand spanking new! I never put my pots or pans in the dishwasher. There is nothing that boiling water can't clean. The utensils are great, too. It's the little details that RR does, such as the spout on the pots or the angle of a utensil, that make her products so great. I had no problems with the lids, either. And rice comes out perfect! Thanks Rachel, this set is amazing and the price and easy pay was much appreciated. This set combined with my Cuisinart anodized set gives me every imaginable size and shape cookware pieces a cook can use.
