I had put these on my wish list as a future splurge and was surprised and pleased when my hubbie bought them for me for my birthday last month! (LOVE that other folks can see my wish list!) I have owned Farberware before, but, only one or two pans...after twenty years or so, a handle had loosened, a pan lid was missing, etc. but they were still going strong! I don't think you can get a better quality of cookware at this price! (I had looked at other brands of aluminum clad stainless steel cookware and found they were HUNDREDS of dollars!) I have a ceramic cooktop and have found that many of the pots and pans I've tried have warped immediately and were instantly useless on the ceramic top (where things have to be perfectly flat to work). Not so with these pots and pans! They stay flat and heat up quickly. This set has a nice variety of sizes (my only complaint is that it doesn't contain a 6 quart stock pot). The lids fit well and the pots and pans have wonderful rings on the handles that allow hanging on any pot rack! The skillets are small, but, really good (the non-stick surface is thick and the pans heat up well and clean up easily). The set also came with three stainless bowls with plastic covers (perfect for chilling cookie dough), also with rings for hanging. I am pleasantly surprised as well by the baking pan. I usually use glass, but, my lemon bars baked up very nicely in this pan. The cookie sheet, though extremely small, is also impressive. It doesn't warp under high heat and I have used it for making garlic toast and as a pan under pies and breads with no problem. In fact, I plan to put Farberware cookie sheets on my wish list next! If you a looking to replace pots and pans, or, want to give someone you love a much appreciated gift that will last for years and years, I recommend this wonderful set!
For the price of this product, the Farberware Classic line cannot be beat! The variety of pot and skillet sizes available, along with interchangeable lids, is a real plus in my kitchen. Clean up is easy and required storage space is minimal. The first set I owned for 23 years. This new set was a treat to myself since my oldest is moving out to set up his own household...with my old Farberware!
Best Kitchenware Ever!!!!!!
Just like Grandma used to have!
Yes these pots and pans have been slightly updated from their older version, but they still function and clean up just as well. I purchased these because my Grandmother had a set of them my whole life and they were always dependable, and seemingly indestructible. I say indestructible because I have managed to destroy many non stick pots: scratching the coat off and melting the coat of non stick yuckyness- and that literally stinks horribly and ruins the meal and the pot! The Farberware pots and pans are heavy duty, stainless steel, and best of all- there's no non stick coating on the pots to ruin if you leave your beans unattended (in my case cleaning house) with the fire up a tad too high. The lids are not glass, they are also stainless steel. So no dropping lids and stressing the glass which in turn eventually break. These stainless steel lids sit nicely on the pots, the bell shape keeps the moisture in the pot and when the lid is removed the bell shape actually helps with not dripping the condensation on the lid all over the stove.
This Farberware Classic Stainless Steel set is perfect for any cook of any age. For young cooks who are learning, for cooks who try to fold the laundry while the beans have 2 minutes left, for cooks who are a little clumsy and drop their kitchenware, and even the older much more experienced cooks who just want a good high quality classic cookware set. Regardless of the age or expertise, this set is hands down the best that is out there for anyone! And I must add- I searched everywhere including macy's, sears, walmart, target, and tons of places online. This was the only set I ever saw that was a great brand, that had stainless steel lids, and sturdy design. After moving out on my own I have ruined 3 sets of nonstick pots. I laugh now because now that I have this set, it will never happen again. The Farberware Classic Stainless Steel 17-Piece Cookware Set is the best cookware set on the market today!
Farberware classic is the best
I bought this set for my girlfriend and she loves it. She knocked on the bottom of the 8 qt stockpot to see how thick it is and she said it sounds just like her mother's pot which is at least 30 years old. She says Farberware is the best.
Everything we need and great quality.
My girlfriend had been complaining for months how she needed new pots and pans. The old set just didn't measure up to the task at hand. This product is an outstanding replacement even if a bit on the heavy side. So far, after three uses I realize how superior the new pots are to the old ones. The eggs don't stick, the stew doesn't scorch and adhere to the bottom of the pot, etc. The pots even seem to grip whatever it is they are set on. I am overall very satisfied with this product and couldn't beat the price.
great pots--great OnlineShopDealer deal
Have had this set of pots for about a month now, and I love them. They arrived in a timely fashion and were well-packed. I originally thought I would purchase individual pots as needed in the local stores, but when I saw the number of pieces in this set for the price, I couldn't resist. Plus, they are all good size, usable pieces, not just various cooking implements included with the set to increase the number of pieces in it.
Everything I've cooked in them has turned out well. They clean up easily either by hand or dishwasher. The only thing I would prefer is an 8-quart pot that can be used as a dutch oven--one that is not as tall and has a broader base than the 8-quart stock pot that is included with the set so that browning meat is easier. Until I find a better one, I'll continue to use my old pot for stews and pot roast. I highly recommend this set of pots, especially at the OnlineShopDealer price!
Faberware Stainless Cookware
The cookware came in great shape and in a quick turnaround. I am pleased with the look and feel of the cookware. It is heavy enough, but easy to handle. I have opted to clean mine out of the dishwasher in order to keep it in pristine shape. LOVE the two teflon coated skillets! Both sizes are great for most anything I wish to cook. I am a happy camper.....
Excellent - and a Bargain
I'm a huge fan of stainless-steel Farberware. In fact, I've been using the same set of Farberware for 35 years. That set was getting a little long in the handle (I'm far from gentle with pots and pans), and I couldn't pass up the price of this set at OnlineShopDealer. I know some have noted lower quality here than in the past, but I'm not seeing it. In fact, I think the new set is superior to the old. The assortment of items here should make any cook happy, and, yes, the lids fit the flying pans. This is a great set for just about anyone who cooks - I couldn't be happier.
What a deal! I guess perhaps some people would be unhappy that the handles feel slightly cheap, but wow the pots are of great quality. Sturdy, stainless steel that cleans easily. Couldn't be happier with this purchase - I feel like it's truly underpriced. Would highly recommend to anyone getting a full set of pots. I don't like when people say it's a "good set for young people starting out" and similar comments. These are great pots, regardless of your income level. Highly recommended!
Grew up with these pots. Knew when I got my own pots, they would be Farberware. No other pots come close in this price range. Very well made, the black handles NEVER get hot, the lids are metal too a huge plus, they fit securely, look classic, cook evenly, clean perfectly with steel wool. Highly recommend, this set. Great gift.
