Technique Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe 8-pc. Cookware Set
These pans are incredible. I have had mine for a few years, but the other day I emptied a can of corn into the small pan and left it on the stove. I forgot about it. I came back to find the liquid boiled away and the corn burned to the bottom of the pan. After some gentle persuasion the pan came clean. Any other pan I would have had to toss or would have had permanent black marks.
I was so looking forward to this set, such nice looking and just the right size. Unpacked them and put big box in the trash, started to stacked up pots and pans to put them away. Immediately I noticed all the exterior finish started to have scratches just from being stacked. Very poor finish, I am sorry to send them back.
I bought a similar set that came with a small frying pan instead of the utensils. I have enjoyed all the pieces except the large frying pan. Despite only using plastic utensils made to use with Teflon type cookware and only hand washing, the finish on the frying pan has greatly eroded. I never dared put them in the dishwasher, and wouldn't dream of using metal utensils with these.
Avid Cook and love this cookware!
I bought a larger set over 5 years ago and it still looks great! I do have other pans for deep frying and high temperature cooking from stovetop to oven. You must use common sense to preserve your pots and pans! If I rinse right away with water, cleaning is minimal...truly non-stick. I've won several cooking contests...so my pots and pans have to perform well! Technique is great!
I love techniques, well the pieces I have, had my chicken frying pan forever, just now thinking of replacing and other pieces still like new..they have weight as well as thickness in of the pans..my son asked for Christmas a good set of pans, since all he own were cheap and replaced and replaced..he loves to cook, purchase these as part of his gift and they are nothing like I have or had..light weight and not thick..he loves them, then again he had cheap like dollar store..so this is a step up..where are the heavy duty Tech. hard Anodized? Gave 3 stars for my reviews, his would be higher..I wish you also had an iffy button to recommend
I had a Cook's Essentials set for 5 years before I finally took the company up on the lifetime guarantee and returned it because of the scratched surfaces. I replaced that set with a Technique set and was disappointed to experience the same scratching on the surface of this set. Two years later I am ready for another replacement!!
One of a few products that I wish I had the nerve to return. I only have the sauce pan and the stock pot left since we tossed out the other pieces. I also have tried the cook essentials set but also ran into the chipping and the staining problem.
Disappointed - 2 Times Over
I originally purchased this set with the hope of not using any cooking oil as they demo on TV. The skillets began to stick very badly so I did ask for replacement under warranty, which was done. I just cooked eggs this morning on the brand new skillet after taking it out of the box and washing it. In its very first use it had egg stuck all over it and would not release even remotely close to how they demo on TV. I wish I could post a picture.
Disappointed. Will not purchase Technique cookware again. QVC usually does better than this... I'm not also worried to purchase Cooks Essentials as they are the same company.
I have this set of cookware, mine also scratched on the bottom as another person stated, if she had kept using it in a little while the scratches are not even noticeable. I love mine and would recommend it to anyone.
I ordered this cookware last week and I am inlove. So much so that I ordered the same set for my son. I can not wait until he gets it. Just moving in to his first apartment. I also used the utencils that come with the set and no scratches.
Purchased this set as a gift for my bonus daughter who is a budding chef and needed a good starter set. She absolutely loves them! Good quality and feel to each piece. The smaller set is perfect for apartments - very easy to store.
You get what you pay for!
You get what you pay for and with this set by Technique, you get your money's worth and more! This cookware set is great to cook with! It heats evenly and is very sturdy. I like the fact that it is not Teflon coated but hard anodized metal/steel! That's what's unique about this set! You don't have to worry about scratching it. That's why they included a metal spatula and spoon! The cookware set is light weight and very durable! It's sure to last a long, long time! I'm very pleased with this set and would recommend it to anyone!
