Technique 11-pc Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set W/ColorSmart
When my package arrived the box punched in a big hole. No harm to the cookware. I opened each. I found one small lid for frying pan is clouded. I called on chat she reordered for another new lid hopefully they can send me new lid. And I put that same small frying pan in the dishwasher the silicone handle was smeared with white thing on the silicone. It cannot be removed it is there after hand wash.
I tried big fryer. It is good to cook and not put it in the dishwasher I washed it by hand. Now I can't say whether you should buy it. It can be a good cookware if you are careful about the dishwasher and do the hand wash if you like.
best purchase Ever!!
I bought these for my daughter & Son in-law for Christmas and they just love them. They cant thank me enough. :) Now I want a set for my self, but going to ask for a request, can you make them color Smart in orange? Its my favorite color ; )
Not a good deal!
I've had mine for over a year and like the lady before said the inside started pealing and they scratch very easily. Not worth the Money. Save your money and buy a better brand. I wish I would have. I talked to customer service and if they are past 30 days they tell you to call the company for replacement and they will replace it but you pay for shipping.
I was excited to get these. They add a touch of color to my kitchen and I like hard anodized cookware. Unfortunately, the coating started coming off almost immediately. I should have returned them.
Worst set EVER!!
The set was bought for me as a gift. They worked great for less than a year. Then they started peeling, now have huge pockmarks in the bottoms. When I contacted Technique I was given the run around. I'll NEEEEEEEEEEEVER own this again.
Worst Purchase Ever
I have been shopping with QVC for over 20 years and have always relied on the Q for Quality, but this purchase is a huge disappointment. I have only used a couple of pieces thus far and the exteriors are already scratched, inspite of the fact that any pots or pans that need to be stacked, I have separated with squares of felt. The saucepan that I used for making tomato sauce is permanently stained! QVC needs to check its quality control in the kitchen.
Too late to return
I was so excited about this set being dishwasher safe and could not wait. After a few washes, the exterior began to look like the older version of the Anodized. The color smart interior began to show after about three weeks of use.
Nice but doesnt last
Love the look, however the interior color peels and now foods stick to the inside.
I was using the skillet and had the lid on it frying potatoes and the glass in the lid exploded. It went in the food all over the counter and floor. I like the cookware but the lids scare me.
I've had these for about a year and thought they were the best pans I've ever had. Nothing stuck to them and cleaning was a breeze. So I decided to baby them and only use rubber utensils and only hand wash. But lately I've been noticing scratches in the pans are particularly in the skillets. The outsides are even worse but figured that was normal because they're touching the flame. But I'm also noticing that they aren't as non-stick as when they were new. And the other day I got a little lazy and put the smallest pan that I had just used to heat some soup on the TOP shelf of my dishwasher. The bottom of the outside of the pan seemed to lose the gray coating layer and exposed stainless steel! I now have a silver band around half of the bottom of this pan. I don't know how it's going to effect the cooking but what coating would dissolve on the first time in a dishwasher??? I'm hesitant on ever buying this brand again and anxious to see how long they will last.
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.
