I was excited to purchase this new cookware and have used it several times in the last week since I bought it and it has outdone my expectations! I read the care and instructions book that came with it and it noted something I didn't know about the use of vinegar. It says before use, wash in warm soapy water with 1 cup vinegar to take off the factory oils to avoid discoloration and difficulty cleaning later on. I must say, something worked because I haven't had anything stick or scorch in these pans and cleanup is a breeze. Very top notch stuff. I almost spent $230 on 1 pan similar to this and so glad i didn't especially when I can get the same results with far less money. Reading the Instructions does wonders....
I bought this product and I was a little disappointed. They are beautiful but, when cooking in them they leave shadows of what was cooked. When I got them, I read the manual and it said to wash them in warm, soapy water with vinegar to get the factory oils out of them. I did that. I cooked with them and it left like a shadow, not sure how to discribe it on the bottom of the pots. I will continue to use them in hopes that the problem solves itself, but any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
I cook alot so I needed a good set of cookware after reviewing and checking prices I thought this would be a good option turns out most of the frying I do is stuck on the pan.
Food stick in the pot not matter how much old is in it
Love the pots and pans. I wanted a set that didn't have the coating on so many others have. It has the many pieces I need for my family cooking.
I love my Kenmore Stainless Steel Cooking Set. It is made very sturdy and love that the handles have rubber! I have decided to go with stainless steel to eliminate more chemicals from our everyday intake, if you really think of it, it is amazing how many things come in contact with plastic and chemicals! Now if you are not used to cooking with stainless steel it is a lifestyle change that you need to become familiar with. Foods don't need, nor do you want, to cook at high temperatures. It will only burn your food and cause a big mess in your pans. Also, be sure to read over the maintenance instructions before you use, and be sure to wash them how they refer to before your first use. I hope you enjoy your set as much as I do mine :D
Cleans up easily, heavy enough to be durable, light enough to be useable.
