Technique 10-pc Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Set w/ColorSmar Nonstick
Love these Pots and Pans
I love these pots and pans. I bought these as a replacement for a set that I have had for several years. So glad I got them. They live up to what they claim!
I've had these pans for about a year now, They are a nice size and weight, and still cook well. However, they are no longer blue on the inside, with repeated cooking, the blue has darkened to black, and they are no longer non-stick. The square grill pan is a pain to clean so we never use it - probably why it's the only pan in the set with color left. They still cook well, so I guess the set isn't a total loss, just not easy clean or cook anymore. Heavy sigh.
Have had a good experience with this set...
I've had this cookware almost a year, purchased summer of 2012. I treat it like teflon even though it isn't, and don't put in the dishwasher. I use plastic untensils, NO forks or metal. There are minor shallow scratches in the pans (color is still there), but overall they still look great. The frying pans have gotten a bit of that grease buildup on the outside bottoms-- that always happens.
I haven't had any color peeling (I got the eggplant color in case that matters). The pans get hot enough to sear meat without using highest heat setting, I generally use medium high. Meat gets caramelized easily and releases well. Cleanup is with a teflon-safe scrubby sponge and hot soapy water. Minus one star because handles are so heavy the pans tip until there's enough weight in them to keep them on the burner.
I would buy this set again.
The color started peeling off within the first two weeks I had them. I've only used the 10in so far and it is peeling, scratched and just looks awful and that's with using plastic utensils. I am returning the whole set as I can't take the risk of this happening with the rest of the set. I called customer service and they will pay for return shipping and even though I no longer have the original packaging (purchased 5 months ago) she said that would not be a problem. I do appreciate QVC for the great warranty.
Purchased 3/12/2012 and still working great!
I bought my set (blue) on March 12, 2012. YES, 3/12/2012. I kept forgetting to write a review, and even after 14 months this set is still working great! The non stick is STILL non stick AND the color has NOT faded. And, YES, I have switched in between hand washing and putting them in the dishwasher on high temps and low temps, and it still works great. The price was good, and it was well worth it!
Daughter loves them
I got these pots and pans for myself, but loved the Guy Fieri pan set I bought as well. My daughter saw them and fell in love with them. So I gave them to her. She loves cooking with them. She has no problems at all. She loves the color of the pans, I had chosen the blue! I would recommend them to everyone!
I bought this set a few months back and that have came all to pieces they really don't hold up.
Poor Quality Skillets
Have only had a few months and skillets arlready show extreme wear! We use untensils that supposedly will not scratch non stick material. To be safe we only use
rubber spatulas and you know you cant't cook everything using rubber spatulas!!!
BEST COOK WARE EVER !
I purchased the blue, not only is it beautiful and fun to cook with (I don't like to cook normally) but it's so easy to clean. I threw away all my old pots and pans and only use these. For the people that are saying that they scratch easily ....they must not be taking care of them properly. I know that they are dishwasher safe, but I still prefer to hand wash, or make my husband do it. The hardest decision was for me was what color to get. I suggest that if you need new pots and pans. GET THIS SET.
BEST POTS AND PANS
These are all I ever use! I love them I was nervous at first about getting them, I got the cobalt, They are the prettiest blue! I was torn on which color to get, I loved the copper as well! The cobalt really makes a color pop in my kitchen I love them, I use them every night, I have a set of very expensive stainless steel pots and pans and I wont use them. I was so tired of food getting stuck and Id have to scrub then soak then scrub some more! No more, I left my pots overnight after a little get together, I never put them in the dishwasher, I honestly forgot about them then I stepped in the kitchen the next morning and I thought OH NO I HAVE RUINED THEM ! I ran some hot water on them and the food started to wash away!!! I did have to let one pot soak for about 5 minutes with some dawn and hot water I think it was baked beans, I didnt even have to wipe it after the 5 minutes, it was gone i ran a rag over it and wiped it dry ! I LOVE THEM best thing for a busy mom. I think that the food even tastes better! I seriously would buy these again and again and we were thinking about getting another color with the ones we already have and mix and matching! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!!
Sad to say:
I am very sad to say how scratched my beautiful pots and pan are looking after only 4months of usage. I love the color ( blue), I only use wooden or plastic nonstick utensils and I am seeing scratches on the bottoms of the pots. I hope QVC lives up to their life long warrantee.
Nice looking pans and the non stick is great but they scratched after one use and I only used a plastic spoon and washed by hand. They need to send everyone who ordered this item a refund.
