Technique 10-pc Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Set w/ColorSmar Nonstick
Bad news pots
I ordered these pots and am thoroughly disgusted with them, they scratched even without using metal utensils, copper color is peeling off pans and can not get bottom of pots clean. Tried washing by hand and in the dishwasher, even cleaned the bottom of pots with a safe clay cleaner (which was bought at QVC) and they are not clean and the finish is coming off. Wouldn't buy them or advise anyone to purchase these. One pot is starting to have problem with food sticking to bottom and it is only pot without scratches.
Used them for 2 years with no end in sight!
Well I am on a roll of writing reviews today! I have had these for 2 years now with no complaint! I have used and abused these pretty regularly and they have held up to it all. I normally hand wash these just because it is so easy but I have thrown them in the dish washer too when I am being lazy.... I use silicone, bamboo and even METAL tongs on these and GASP I have no scratches...... They have been great for me and I would buy another set if I needed them.
I loved my cookware set when it first arrived. Just after the first year of use I've noticed the coating starting to peel off around the edges at the top of the pans. Somewhat disappointing I expected it to be more durable.
It looks very nice cleans up good but the outside and inside scratches easy . Not worth the price. Won't buy again
worst purchased ever
I bought these last March, and I have to replace pans already. I heard they won't scrach but the did first time cooking. I'm done to one fry pan and double broiler. Have to buy new stainless still pan again. The are just like telflon pans not worth it .
Love this set
I bought the 10 piece set in Copper. I have burned eggs & pork chops in the skillet and boiled water way too long in the pots. No damage, easy to clean. I don't use metal utensils because I'm so programmed not to but I wouldn't be scared to use them.The heavy glass bacon press lid is wonderful! My only wish is that I had the ability to buy 2-3 more pots. I don't need any more skillets so buying another full set wouldn't work.
Very happy with this purchase.
I bought this non-stick set in January 2013. My husband wanted a non-stick set because he was not a fan of cleaning our Calphalon stainless steel pans. We have never used metal utensils and never washed the pans in the dishwasher...and some of the pans are peeling! Cheaply made pans...the non-stick coating is very thin.
I'm not sending this set back for warranty service...my new Calphalon Unison Non-Stick set arrived today!
Great set. I purchased the 10 pc hard anodized set (now sold out) several years ago and have been so happy with it. I was looking for some additional pieces (that didn't come in the first set) but the open stock pieces were so expensive to purchase separately. I had wanted to get this set for awhile but was a little hesitant by some of the reviews. But, I liked it so much since it had all of the additional pieces I was looking for (and a couple others). So when it was a TSV on 6 easy pay I jumped at it (despite some of the poor reviews). I am so glad I did (and am wondering why I waited so long). The set is absolutely beautiful. The cookware is a little thinner and lighter weight than the first set but I like that, it heats up faster. The nonstick coating is working great (no problems as other reviewers have mentioned). The only thing I'm disappointed about is that I didn't get it sooner so the color I preferred (eggplant) was sold out so I got the blue (which is now also sold out). Although I preferred the eggplant, the blue is so beautiful and adds such a pop of color to my kitchen, I am forgetting all about being disappointed with not getting the eggplant color! I would absolutely recommend this item and any other Technique product for that matter!!!
Not their best product
I to have had issues with these pans...have returned one already as it peeled off and the new one is doing the same thing...I use it to fry eggs and reheat, so the heat is not on high...I'm ready to throw them out as it is very costly to return for new ones each time, before you know it, I will have paid for another set in postage...this new coating is nothing like the old ones that could be beat to death...loved those so much better, but realize the coating wasn't as healthy...you need to fix this issue as I've bought nothing but Cook's Essentials and Technique since the beginning and no longer will...very disappointed customer...
Love, Love, Love This Cook Ware
We have used our cook wear set for over a month and just love it. Have had no problems with scratching or discoloration of interior or exterior and our meals turn out beautifully. We followed recommendations for medium heat cooking and even use low heat a lot so never have to worry about over/undercooking.
Worried for a second or two!
I was worried the pot of chili that i destroyed by burning had ruined my big Technique pan. The bottom inch of the food was burned black! But it came right out with no damage to the pan. But now i have no lunch!
NOT TRUE TO DEMOSTRATION
I have a very good stainless steel set of cookware but ordered this because of the none stick and easy clean up. Well, first I cooked an egg with only a light coating of butter, it stuck. I then cooked another one using the same amount of oil that I normally do and it did fine but that defeated the purpose. Also, I did not use metal utensils but it still showed scratch marks. I also wanted the 8 quart stock pot but to get 8 quarts, you would have to fill it to the brim so you do not actually get 8 quarts of cooking. I watch David regularly but I have been burned on several of the items I have purchased during his show so I will start to rethink my purchases.
