CooksEssentials Hardcoat Enamel II Nonstick 13-pc. Cookware Set
Love these pots!
I have had the red set for 5 years. I recently have changed my kitchen pattern so I ordered the blue ones.
I bought this set for my daughter for Christmas and she likes it very much. To her horror though it fell off of the counter and the whole side bent. I talked to one of the representatives at QVC and she said to return it to Cooks Essentials. I did, and they truly do stand behind their products. I received a replacement 6qt. Pot today. I really appreciate the service.
Still look good after a full year.
I waited a while so I could give an honest review. I've been using this set for exactly one year and two weeks. The piece that gets used the most is the skillet with the pour spout. I use it two to four times a week, and it goes through the dishwasher every single time. The bottom inside the pan is showing some wear, but is still completely nonstick. Along the edge where I always bang my spoon to knock the food off, the coating is barely starting to peel up. There are a couple of scratches where hubby and I have dropped sharp knives into the sink, not paying attention. Overall, I am very happy with these pots and pans and would recommend the brand.
Still love it
I have my set for over 5 years and still love it.
Use all of the pieces a lot and even bought an additional size skillets.
I love these pots and pans. Great nonstick surface and easy clean up. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because the lids to the pots with the pour spouts do not seal therefore you cannot cook rice in them or anything else that requires a tight seal. The liquids evaporate. I hope alternate lids are available to purchase.
Wonderful a year later!
My family purchased this set for me for Christams and we love it. It has held up very well and my family of 6 use at least 2 pieces everyday. We put ours in the diswasher and the color has changed a little ( which is why I gave it 4 out of 5), but the coating and durability are wonderful! Great sizes!
Fantastic Buy For The Money
Great set as advertised! Heavy home cooking and product has held up great for last year in dishwasher!
Only wish is larger pans for the family
disappointed 1-2 yrs later
I was excited when I purchased these and loved them from the start. I have never put them in the dishwasher or used metal on them. However, it is now 1-2 yrs later and the two saucepans have the nonstick coating peeling around the top edge. I use them the most. I am guessing that the lids' metal edges are to blame for this happening over time. Very disappointed. They are beautiful and work well. I was just hoping they would last. I may finally switch to stainless.
Makes The Best Grilled Cheese
The square pan is my favorite. It makes the perfect grilled cheese every time. And cleans in a jiffy.
I've had mine for several years, in red, and I love it. The clean up with just soap and water is so easy and I use a nylon scouring pad for the bottom if it needs it. Mine looks as good today as when I bought it. I use them every day and am purchasing a second set for my daughter since her husband commented about how much he loved my cookware. I'm getting them a set of their own.
VERY DISSAPOINTED - POOR QUALITY
I purchased this set about 1-1/2 years ago. Very dissapointed. The finish on the pans is all worn off. The coating on the handles of the stock pot are peeling. I don't have the box to sent this back, and I don't think the warranty is in effect anymore. Was very dissapointed with this set, would not order cooks' essentials again. There is only my husband and myself, so the cookware does not get abused. Very poor quality. If anyone cares about this. Set was now cheap either.
I have had 2 sets for 10+ years; I did have to return 2 items for the nonstick coming off and they were replaced no shipping or handling via QVC and Thank you!
Since then I have purchased 7 more sets for family and friends with no complaints. Getting ready to purchase another set as a gift.
