Technique 11-pc Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set W/ColorSmart
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.
Beautiful and so easy to clean
Not only beautiful and easy to clean, cooks so nicely. Large chicken fryer is great for browning chicken or beef, covering and continuing to cook on slow. Each piece has been used and all perform nicely.
It was good for the first 3 months. Now stained, with metal utensil scratches. The non stick doesn't work, Going to try to return Have the set since Sept 2013.... Bad product. I have other sets from Technique that are 5 yrs. old and looks like new.
I love my pans.
I have a high end set of pans that I bought when I married 10 years ago, however; I was attracted to this set because of the non-stick, lightweight, oven safe features. I bought the black when it was presented as a TSV and over a half a year later they are treating me well. Non-stick is wonderful. I wash these by hand and only use silicone utensils. Gave it only 4 stars because, as compared to my other pan set, they feel (cheap), I have a few scratches visible on the outside, and I wonder how long they will last me. (I cook almost every night). But you get what you pay for people. Oh, my favorite part is the strainer lid on the large pot! I do enjoy Technique!
My niece is just starting life as an adult and needed some pots and pans so we gifted her with our old Technique set which we'd had for about 10 years. I purchased this set because the old ones held up extremely well, plus it had a steamer basket which I LOVE.
Unfortunately, this set isn't anything like the old one. Within 2 weeks the large fry pan had several scratches in the coating (I don't use metal utensils so I don't know how this could have happened). My husband burnt the boiled eggs again (something he'd done countless times with the old set) and now the pot has black burn marks where the eggs sat in the pot. Most of the set's bottoms are terribly discolored as well.
I bought this set 6 months ago and they're in much worse shape than the 10 year old set I now regret giving away. They still work but.. I don't expect them to last 2 years let alone 10 years.
