Paula Deen Southern Belle Speckled Enamel 13-pc. Cookware Set
Love this set!
I waited months before ordering this set. I have looked in several stores and also looked at many different brands. I kept coming back to this one. I have been very pleased so far! The only thing that I wish was different, is if the larger pan was even bigger. I had bought a larger pan at my local Walmart and love it because of how big it is. I have several of Paula Deen's products and I love every last one of them!!!
2nd set of Paula Deen's / Love them!
I received my first set about 5 years ago and gave them to my son and he loves them too. I just purchased my 2nd set in oatmeal color and they are superb and have made some better upgrades with some spouts on them and a great value for all the pieces received. As long as you hand wash them as well as the lids and use non abrasive spoons they should last you ten years plus. There is alot of thought going into her product. She is amazing as well as her cookware. Five star no question.
I did buy Rachel rays and her oval pots were hard to cook in and lids did not fit and slid into pots. I sent those back and will always stick with Paula's today and future purchases.
was a gift
I was so excited when I received this set when we bought our home. It is a nice looking set and it works great! I have had them for a little over year. I recently had to replace two of the pieces because they were scratched and chipping on the inside. I would recommend this set but not for the long haul.Thankfully a dept. store in our area carries seperate pieces so I didn't have to buy a new set.
item is a winner but...
i purchased a second set to replace the 8qt stock pot for my mom that has gotten scratched and guess what? no more 8 qt stock pot! it is now a 6 qt stock pot. so not happy. why did paula change the size of the stock pot???
the set is still beautiful and a wonderful product and my mom loves it. she is 84 years young and i wanted to surprise her with a new stock pot. i was so disappointed i could not do that. but i still think the product is worth purchasing for anyone who is on the fence. and i did rate it 5 stars.
I love this cookware! It's so pretty and I have had no problems with it at all. You do need to hand wash but it's worth it to keep this cookware looking nice.
Nice but small
I like the look of this set however was a bit disappointed in the overall size. The frying pans and deep dish were smaller than sizes that come in a typical set. Other than that the set is nice.
So sorry to see this scratch....
I was so happy to finally get a new cookware set, but as careful as I am with nonstick cookware, this scratches way to easy. I am so sad, because I couldn't wait to get this, but here it is 2 months later, and my pot and skillet have scratches on them. Paula, you should have tested this more before you endorsed this. I am hurting in this economy, and was thankful for easy pay, but so sad to see it damaged already. I thought I was treating myself for once to something special.
Best design yet
10" skillet was damaged out of box, but no worry... being replaced per QVC. Love the design of these pans. I have short arms and these handles fit my hands perfectly and are well balanced. High heat isn't necessary except to boil water...saves energy to me! Even cooking. I use on glass stovetop. I hand wash or wipe out after use with paper towel...easy cleanup. Note: Read instructions/warranty when receive for best use.
Love the little 1/2 qt pan!! Great idea. Set is great combination of all sizes and the plus is the wonderfully made wooden utensils that are included. Hand wash and care for these workhorses and they'll last years.
Do Not Order
I have owned these pans for about 1 year and ALL the Teflon is peeling off! When I called the Paula Dean Customer Service they wanted me to send all the pans back at my EXPENSE......that is terrible. I will never buy her products again............Too bad.
Beautiful, High Quality Cookware
Beautiful, high quality cookware that I would definately recommend! The Southern Belle body design is a great look and sets it apart from the other styles of Paula Deen cookware! Very happy with my purchase.
LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.
Just love this set. I think the two biggest reasons are that they are easy to clean (wouldn't dream of putting any pot in the dishwasher) and the fact that they are light in weight and still do a fabulous job cooking. It is a myth, I believe, that the heavier the pot the better. I have tried them all. Paula's pans do not lose the coating. Can't say the same for the others. This is just a really nice set--the only one with the little butter pot. And it's only sold on qvc. Hope I gave everyone who is on the fence the confidence to buy this particular set. I have a small square fry pan of Paula's that I use just about every day for breakfast. Have it three years, not a mark inside or outside of it. (Just saying!)
BOUGHT IT IN THE LIGHT BLUE :0)
BOUGHT THIS SET IN THE LIGHT BLUE FOR MY DAUGHTER WHICH BY THE WAY, IS MORE OF A SOFT TEAL COLOR. SHE LOVES IT I GAVE IT TO HER A LITTLE EARLY :0) SHE HAS BEEN WANTING A SET FOR A LONG TIME AND LOVES PAULA DEEN SO YES, I DID MAKE HER VERY HAPPY THIS CHRISTMAS !!! :0) IT HOLD UP WELL, IF TAKEN GOOD CARE OF NO METAL UTENSILS AND NO DISHWASHER WASH BY HAND DRY AND HANG THEM UP OR PLACE TOWELS ETC. IN BETWEEN POTS/PANS WHEN STORING AFTER EACH USE !! DO NOT STACK ONE INSIDE THE OTHER, OR THE MIGHT SCRATCH UNLESS YOU PLACE A SOFT CLOTH/WASH CLOTH ETC. BETWEEN THEM :0) JUST A TIP TO HELP CARE FOR THEM PROPERLY :0)
