Technique 11-pc Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set W/ColorSmart
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.
Very good pots
This set of pots are a very set of pots. Nothing much ever sticks to them. But they are easily scratched but other than that,they are a good set of pots.
Peeling non stick
I will need to go out and buy new pots and pans again. These looked so great when we got them we got rid of our other cookware. The coating inside these pans are peeling off and is scratched they are unusable.. So disappointed I guess it was not such a great deal.
Just So So....
I really liked the look of this set... But I noticed the first time after cooking with them... There were little scratches left on the inside.. And I don't even use metal utensils!! I was very careful with them and they still get little scratches... And the bottoms of the pots and pans that sit on the burner scratch up really badly. :( I do notice my food heats up faster in these, just a little.... But I have to be careful because things will stick! And that gets worse over time. I bought this set in red later last year. Now I am wishing I had bought a set from Rachel Ray. I kept my old set and honestly ...
I still kind of prefer them.
This cookware looked nice but is cheap and disappointing. It scratches very easily and sticks after a short time. Its only been a few months and I am searching for new cookware.
Don't cook chili
First, the purple color was lovely (that's the one star). After that, things go downhill. After cooking up a pot of chili, I discovered that bottom of the pan was blistered and the non stick coating was coming off. I've only had these for 6 months, and am now throwing it out. I got these because of the sizes (and the color) but will stick with buying Green Pans instead.
Favorite Set Ever!!!
I bought these on TSV in Sept. I love everything about them. I love the sizes of each, not heavy but a good weight. They cook like a dream and evenly. Never had a set that cooked this well. I wash by hand and use silicone utensils. Giving 4 stars cause I do have a few scratches. But after all, we do like pretty but function is most important. My 20 yr old son is moving out and I'm buying him this for his first set of pots and pans knowing he will have a great quality item to cook with.
I replaced a 25 year old set of pans that had been a very good set with these pans. They did not last 6 months before the nonstick coating peeled off almost in one piece..I would not recommend this set to anyone.
DON'T BUY THIS COOKWARE
PLEASE DON'T BUY THIS COOKWARE!!! LOOKS CHEAP AND SCRATCHES VERY EASILY. I AM EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PURCHASE. CONSIDERING SENDING IT BACK FOR A REFUND. PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS.
Do not buy
On my second set of these pans. Sent first set back because the " color smart" color started coming off!! Now I have the same set and guess what same thing after only a couple of months of use. I don't even put them in the dishwasher. I wash them by hand!!!
Do NOT waste your money on these pans they are garbage
Pans are all scratched and peeling
I bought these in September as a TSV and I was so excited to get them. They do not hold up well. Usually I love everything from QVC, but this is the first thing in many many years or ever that I am going to try to return. They just didn't hold up and I used wooden or plastic spatulas, no metal spatulas. Just very disappointed in the quality.
Not the quality I expected
They are a little too lightweight. I like the pots, but the skillets look awful, scratched and stained, after less than 6 months of use. I bought the set in Sept. as a TSV. Glad I didn't pay the full price. Just disappointed these were not the quality I wanted.
