Technique 10-pc Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Set w/ColorSmar Nonstick
Love this set
I purchased this set in Dec. of 2012, and have used it every day since. No problems at all, some darkening in the center but still works great. I never have it on highest heat because it conducts heat so well its not needed. I don't put in dishwasher as clean up is a breeze. I love to cook and this set makes clean up easy!
It was a good purchase, no doubt!
Their in such a beautiful color for such a good price, AND their nonstick?!! Truly a beautiful set for those with a love of cooking.
This set is easy to use . light weight and very easy to clean. I'm very glad I made this purchase and I highly recommend this set !
We've now had these for about a month and they were a great value at the price we paid. The whole family likes this set and the grill pan makes amazing sandwiches! I love them and I'm so glad to be using such great non-stick. Eggs are easy and the pans themselves are light weight enough but durable. Very glad I made this purchase.
Great Mothers Day Gift
I purchased this set for my mother -in -law and she loves them . She hasn't had any of the problems others are writing about . She hand washes and drys hers after every use and she uses plastic utensils. I plan on purchases another set soon.
These are good!
I've seen the negative comments some have written, but I had a set from yrs ago,and recently, my husband burned up both of my frying pans--setting them on high heat--which is NEVER necc. with these. Medium High is all you ever need. I can literally wipe them out with soap and warm water. DONE. Do not spray PAM on them--all in the instructions Got this new set with TSV--love it so far! Had pieces I don't have. Think you'll be happy with these!
nothing like they demonstrated :(
i wasted $165 and QVC was kind to accept an exchange but as life goes i missed the return label i never got then the time to return expired. They offered the reg P.O. to come pick it up to exchange but i missed them coming to pick it up cause left on an emergency. i still have to call in for the lifetime warranty on the ones that turned so bad they've become so dark brown they dont look cooper anymore to add they R not non stick anymore. Have to use a lot of oil on them. Waste of $ the only ones that still work R the ones we hardly used...
Worst Purchase Ever from QVC
I have always been happy with what I've purchased from QVC so am not blaming them for this, however this is the worst purchase I've ever made. These pots & pans were not a good purchase and by the time I realized it was the pans and not the cook it was too late to return them as the pans were damaged. They burn everything I attempt to cook with them. No matter if I have the stove turned down to 2-4 low it will still burn. You cannot simmer anything in these and the grill pan is even worse. Something about them causes them to burn everything I try to cook plus in no time at all the bottoms of the pans were scorched black. I went back to my old set and these just take up space in my cabinet. Thank goodness I had not yet gotten rid of my old set.
Feel like cooking again
I can't say enough wonderful things about this cookware set. I'm now back to enjoying cooking again!
These are honestly the worst pans I have ever purchased from QVC. The largest fry pan discolored the first time I used it. The griddle discolored within a couple of uses. The hard anodized is coming off the bottom after putting in dishwasher. The non stick coating is peeling off all around the edges of the pan and ends up in my food. I'm sorry but I would love to know how only a select few people got a set of pans that have lasted them over a year with no scratches or issues?? The only way I would see that happening is if you really have not used them.
Worst set of pots & pans i have ever owned!
I watched the demonstration and listened to all the rave reviews by the host and techniques rep/chef. Kept saying how much these are tested -- coating won't come off, yadda, yadda, yadda. I cook alot and felt pretty good about the purchase --- well, coating does come off and i was beyond careful -- never put in the dishwasher, never used sharp cooking utensils, etc., and pots look awful. Needless to say, i now need to buy a new set --- not techniques -- for sure!
Coating on pans come off
After being put into the dishwasher several time the coating on the pan comes off.
