Technique Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe 8-pc. Cookware Set
The Best Cookware for the Money!
This is my second set, my first set I bought 3 years ago and it was a little bigger but what a great set it has been. This smaller set will go up north to our cabin. This set has everything you could ask for: Hard Anodized, Non-stick, NSF and Dishwasher safe!!! Oh, my-oh-my…. I LOVE THIS!!!
I have these pots and pans, not exactly this set, but the identical pots and pans just different sizes............I LOVE THEM !!! I had purchased a well known brand when I moved South, and things never, ever cooked right !! I finally tried Technique Hard Anodized, I purchased an oval piece with a matching lid, made a meat loaf and was sold!! The meat loaf browned on all sides and cooked so evenly with the cover on, so perfect, I purchased these pans and the other pans went OUT right away...........I can not say enough good about these pans. I just ordered another set to add to the one I have....I might have 2 stock pots now, but one has notches in it for locking in a lid to strain, and this one does not....either way, I will use them!! I am so excited and can not wait to receive my additional pans !!! So, Technique Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love Technique sets
I bought a set of Technique about 5 years ago also, still use them. I wanted additional pieces, This is the perfect set.
My other set did not have lids that fit on the pans, which is what I needed. I like the pour spouts and drains on the two pans.
These pans are a bit thinner than the other ones, however, the quality is there.
I enjoy cooking with these, clean up is great, they look good, food doesn't stick and they heat evenly.
Excellent For Me, Purchased June 2009
Have had these Technique hard anodized pans for 5 years. Never have used metal in them, only silicone utensils. Bought the utensils the same day to avoid scratches to pans. Never used dishwasher for them.
These pot are still nonstick, all are scratch free, chip free. With the exception of the small skillet. The small skillet is my husbands egg pan. He uses plastic forks in it. It has minor surface scratches, but is still non stick. These are used everyday for a family of 4. My sister has the same set and hers are not in as good of shape as mine. She uses the dishwasher for hers. You can definitely tell the difference on coating.
Can highly recommend these pots for purchase. If you are willing to treat right they will last you much longer than any other set.
joy of cooking
I am so happy I didn't listen to the reviews on these pans, they are wonderful. Some reviews were negative and alot of time I listen to them, my experience with the pans are all positive I have had over a year not scratched up I actually put in dishwasher and they don't turn color, I am looking for a larger set like this, I really don't use the utensils though. I use them everyday.
Non-stick did not last
I really liked these pans at first, but they lost their non-stick properties a long time ago. Also, I have tried EVERYTHING and cannot get the outside of these pans looking good.
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!!
