Technique 11-pc Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set W/ColorSmart
I bought this set December of 2013. I have used only wooded or plastic utensils but they still seem to have scratched. The pots are also peeling and they are discolored. I have only washed them by hand and NOT in the dish washer, even though they say you can. I will not buy for this manufacturer anymore. QVC, you better do better Quality Control.
Very disappointed, had less than two years already thrown out two of the pans because of the inside peels and chipping off.
I purchased this set last year before the holiday season. We began to use them in December 2013. Almost a year later, the skillet and small pan are discolored and scratched. The only cookware that still look great are the ones that I use to boil water or prepare sauces. I don't understand how this happened since we follow the instructions that were included in the packaging and we use non-scratch utensils while cooking with the skillets/pans. I was tempted to get new Technique skillets, but I'm going with another brand instead. I'm so disappointed. :(
I received these & they are very nice looking, but I wished I had shipped these back. I wasn't able to try them out right away & by the time I used them, it was too late to return them, so I guess I am stuck with them. They scratch so easy, it is unbelievable! I only use plastic spatulas, spoons, tongs etc. & they still scratch, the very first time I used the fry pan. I have a set of cookware that I purchased from QCV about 16 years ago & they are in better condition than these pans. I also hate to return these heavy items, because it is a pain, but I wished I could have, because I am not happy with them.
My first REAL non-stick...
Love, love, love, this cookware. I had purchased many so-called nonstick pans since the 80s...this is the FIRST to actually be non- stick and perform EXACTLY like it does on TV. Awesome product. Nothing sticks! EASY clean up. I look forward to making those ooey gooey dishes and don't dread clean up. I don't have a dishwasher, by choice, so I mean easy to clean. :)
Like the other comments - this set was not the quality I expected. It has a lot of scratches and I can see through the color as well. This is not like my last set of Cook's Essential's cookware which lasted years and was quite the value. Stay away from this set.
cheaper than they look
I purchased this set in June 2014. It is now September 2014 and one of the pans has scratches in the coating DESPITE using ONLY non-metal cookware. I am very disappointed also in the sturdiness of the handles on the skillets. They were wiggly even upon first use. I ordered the "platinum" color and they just have a cheap look to them. Disappointed in this purchase for sure.
These pans are awful! I have another set of technique pans I bought a while back, and i must say they were wonderful and have lasted a long time. As they began to show wear and tear from constant use, i decided to invest in a new set to replace them with. These pans scratch easily, have big pits in them, stick, and just are all around horrible! They look like something you picked up cheaply to save yourself money, and expected not to use them for a long period of time knowing that they were not good quality. Not pans with the Technique label on them!
NOT SCRATCH RESISTANT
These pans are the worst........scratched easily. I used teflon and plastic utensils. I am throwing them away. Would be embarrassed to donate to anyone. I have replaced them with Blue Jean Chef pots & pans. Much better quality and for less money. QVC you did not do your homework on these Technique products...quality is very poor. They do look nice but that's it.
This is my second set of technique and we have given sets to other family members as well. They are just wonderful-was beginning to think that qvc had stopped carrying them. Glad to see this is not the case. Suggest qvc bring in more sizes of pots and pans again.
it is not scratch free
Horrible. I bought it and the first time I used it with plastic utensils it scratched immediately. Worst qvc purchase so far.
These are the worst pans I ever bought. After making chili the pan never came clean again. They scratch very easy and the coating comes off. So looked forward to a new set of pans and absolutely hate them. What a waste of money and a huge disappointment.
