Earthpan Hard Anodized Nonstick 3-pc. Skillet Set
I bought this set as is and couldn't be happier. The size and quality are fantastic.
excellent non stick
my first foray into earthpan--best nonstick I've had . Pan sizes great for everyday use. will be back for more.
I was shocked to read some of the reviews....I love these pans! Nothing sticks, no marks....
Bad deal t
Yes these pans were to be the answer to my kitchen skillet problem, BUT they became the problem for sticking what ever I tried to cook in them..
Replaceable pans with warranty
I ordered these pans over 2 years ago (they have a lifetime warranty on them) and shortly after using them and I used them according to directions, they began to stick terribly! I called QVC and they gave me a phone # to call to get them replaced but I had to pay for the return shipping which was $20.00! I went ahead and shipped them back to them because I figured that I would give it one more try and $20.00 was not a bad price to pay for 3 pans, so we'll see. Besides the sticking, they began to show burn marks all over the pan which looked terrible as well. Those of you who want replacements, call QVC. Perhaps that was a bad batch. Good luck!
worst pans ever
These are the worst pans I have ever owned. I've had them a little over a year and had to throw the 10 in fry pan away several months ago. Today my 8 in skillet has bit the dust. I have followed all instructions for proper care. Save your money. Don't buy this product.
I was so excited to get this set of pans after watching Jan's promotion of how great they were, only to find out it was one of the worse investment I have ever made on QVC. Not only does everthing stick but will also burn and leave burn marks making the pan looking dirty for life. Two have already been sent to the trash can the 3rd will as soon as I can find a 11" pan that for sure WILL NOT STICK or BURN !!!!! Don't waste your money.
So VERY disappointed
As a loyal and frequent QVC customer and not a bad cook I was so excited when I finally ordered this set after watching Chef Jan present these pans on QVC for many months. I didn't really need a whole set so this three-pan offering was perfect. I was so impressed each time these were featured to watch Jan do the egg omelet-like preparation in the smaller pan "blowing" the finished product out of the pan. I have used this small pan many many many times and not once was I successful in not having whatever I was cooking stick to the pan. Especially eggs! I heard Jan say one time if there was a sticking issue the user was most likely using too high of heat. I've tried every level of heat, all types of lubricant (none was supposed to be needed) except sprays like Pam. Food sticks each time whether it's butter, bacon grease, shortening, etc etc etc. I will say I don't use the larger pans much but have had better luck with food not sticking in those. I wish I'd returned the set when I first got them but kept thinking the problem was me or that it would resolve itself. I did fried eggs yesterday morning using butter and very low heat. I took a picture of the pan with my phone's camera just so I'd have a record and the chance maybe I could upload it here. NOT pretty!
Do not buy
Sorry. I sent these back once. They sent me another set they stick very badly and I did not use cooking spray. eggs impossible to clean as well as even browned sausage. I normally love all my q purchases. Think qvc should consider recalling these or offering q credits. Hope my cooks essential non stick pans are better. These are getting trashed. So disappointed as love the size & weight.
Would never recommend
I have been pleased with all my purchases from QVC with the exception of this skillet set. The non-stick worked for about 5-6 times of use. Now the only way I can use them is to spray heavy with Pam. I would NEVER purchase this brand again.
A major miss!
Learned too late with another Earth type pan all the dos and don't. No one has ever used these skillets but me, and I know not to put the pans in a dishwasher and to never, ever use Pam type products in the pans. In less than a month, they started to discolor and the wonderful non-stick quickly became a distant memory. My pans are not scratched up and look almost unused, except for the discoloration spots. Please don't waste your time or money on these. Do read the reviews; the negatives far out number the positives.
NOT REALLY NON-STICK!
I purchased these pans awhile ago, around the time they first came out. They just seemed like a great idea. It wasn't long after I started using them that the food started to stick to them. They stained and the finish started coming off.
I didn't realize that they weren't dishwasher compatible until I came down here to look them up and saw that it said handwash only. My fault. But, the ones that I didn't put in the dishwasher, have stained, scratched and now the finish is starting to wear away.
I guess that is why you pay more for the "more expensive" pans. I have some of those and I can put them in the dishwasher, no problem!
Who wants something that can't go in the dishwasher?! I am very careful about using non-metal utensils, yet I have scratches in the non-stick interior. I don't use cooking spray and use only butter or oil and the pans have stains and now stick like crazy. I have already thrown one out and am ready to toss the everyday pan. That was my favorite one to use. I am now looking for another everyday pan to replace this one.
