Technique 11-pc Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set W/ColorSmart
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.
bad purchase ever
I had to return the small skillet cause of scratch marks and then found more in two other pans and I use a teflon spatula in all my cooking.This set is not the as strong as was shown on tv. Would never buy another product of technique,it is too fragile for me
great for a busy mom!
Got these as a gift for my granddaughter. She loves them , they are dishwasher safe
but I think they clean so easy she has.not put them in yet.
Cooks great - scratches easy!
I have only ever used silicone utensils on my Technique set and they are all scratched up. The bottoms also scratch very easily from the burner grates. The set is truly nonstick and that feature is amazing, as long as you don't mind you pots and pans looking terrible. You have to take the good with the bad I guess.
Treated with velvet gloves still scratched
This is my first Technique purchase and will be the last. I bought the set because David said they were able to go into the dishwasher, many reviewers said not to put in the DW. I hand wash the pans and pots, still scratched inside and out. I even have paper towels between the pans and pots so they do not scratch each other (Bounty Quilted, very soft). I am sorry I gave away my Farberware set to my son. I thought the Technique would be lighter and easier to clean, no way! I am angry because I treat my things carefully and no amount of care would prevent the scratching.
Awesome Performance & Color
I bought this set a few months ago, wanting to replace another non-stick set I purchased on QVC about 2 years ago, which the non-stick started to flake off in our food.
This is THE BEST cookware I have ever owned, and I am really picky!
You don't have to use non-stick spray, very little oil, if any, and everything cooks evenly, which is incredible considering my stove does not heat evenly.
All of the non-stick coating is still in tact (we only use plastic, silicone, or wooden utensils). My ONLY qualm with this product is the outside does scratch pretty easily, but I know having and older stove with coil burners has caused this.
Best feature of this cookset is that the clean-up is easy breazy. We do not put this product in the dishwasher because everything cleans up so quickly with a little soap and hot water; sometimes just a paper towel.
I bought this color in the blue when it was on TSV, and the color has not faded one bit.
Hopefully will be able to expand on this set in due time.
I love my cookware, and felt I made a wonderful choice. I follow the care instructions, and the cookware is just perfect for me. Thank you QVC for allowing the easy pay option. I bought something I needed and it was easy on my budget.
I have a set, plus added pieces of Cooks Essentials Stainless 500. They are eight years old, but still look and perform like new. Had wanted to switch to hard anodized and decided this set was the thing. Unfortunately, after light use, these pans are scratching inside and out. Have only used silicone utensils and hand washed. After reading some of the other reviews, I am going to contact customer service to inquire about a return, even though it's past time.
I bought this set as a Christmas gift for my husband. Just like the majority of the reviews after one use the pans got all scratched. No metal was used and a soft sponge was used to clean them. Don't know if there was a "bad" group of sets made but what a disappointment. Mine were also after the return time, but I called customer service and because they were defected I was able to return them for the full price including shipping! Because I had to give it one star, I would say the color was very nice.
NOT THE SAME QUALITY
The quality is not like other hard anodized products ordered before.
Should have returned it
As others have noted, these pan scratch very easily, both inside and out. I only hand-washed them and I never used a hard or metal utensil.
Of course the scratches did not become apparent until after the return period so I am stuck with them.
I think these are going to the Goodwill. I can at least claim a tax deduction!
Loved the design and the special strainer that attaches as a lid, BUT the bottoms scratch and are ugly after a few weeks on a gas cooking stove/burners. Never used any metal tools or washed in dishwasher but would not trust that the product holds up based on the scratching problem noted. Too bad as I really liked the color and 'special features' advertised.
