The set I have I bought in 2009, when I say I love them I really do. It’s a family thing. I have my Granny’s that she bought from the door to door salesman in the 1930s or 40s (she use to talk about how he came in and made a cake on the stove with them) and she was still using them up to the day she passed away in 2008. So when I saw the demo at the Alameda County Home and Garden show I jumped on it!!! Ran into my best friend while there and found out a few months later that she also bought a set the same day. Great minds think alike. I’m in the process of remodeling my kitchen and was concerned if they would work with an induction stove, which I found out they will. I would hate to remodel and find out they don’t work on induction and then have to remodel again because I’m not parting with my pots and pans. Bigger kitchen and room to add more to my collection! Best purchase I have ever made for my kitchen! And better yet they are made in America!!!

I got engaged in 1968 and my fiance and I decided we would need to start purchasing items for our first home together. Never realized how much was needed to complete a kitchen until we started. A friend of mine had just started dating a young man whose “day job” I don’t remember; but he sold cookware as a second job. I remember my fiance and I looking over and cookware and how attractive and durable the set seemed. And to be truthful, we knew it was costly but could tell the quality was there. We actually took out a personal loan and paid monthly for one year in order to pay for our set. 48 years later, this set looks like we just purchased it. At the time our set consisted of 3 saucepans of various sizes, 2 fry pans, and a large stock pot. I am sorry to say that when my smallest saucepan and smaller fry pan got a bit scorched, I foolishly simply threw them away! I blame that decision on my youth. ha ha I still cook. Maybe not as much as I did when I was younger, but it’s still a joy how these pans clean up so well. Not often that I find quality today in anything purchased. KC has stood up to the quality in our home for all these decades.

We bought our set of pans and bakeware in 1973. It is the only set of pans I have ever used. They still look great. I am just now searching for some replacement handles. Well worth the money!!!

After being dragged by my significant other to the Home and Garden Show I found myself at the demonstration booth for Kitchen Craft cookware. Whoever heard of “waterless” cookware right? Well after I tasted my sample of the pot of veggies I was sold!! I called my S.O. and him come meet me at the booth so he could sample too and I could go in for the kill. One bite and he was sold as well!!
Each veggie actually tasted like it was supposed to; I know it sounds crazy but it’s amazing. We sat down with the demonstrator and bit the bullet. I went home, was so excited until the next day…reality set in and I like many others had buyers remorse. I couldn’t believe I spent HOW MUCH on pots??
Fast forward 8 years and I still use and LOVE my pots and the meals I create in them!! I assure you they are worth every last penny!!
If you are a review reader (like me) I can assure you that these pots are truly an INVESTMENT! Mine still look almost brand new and are used often.

I purchased my Kitchen Kraft set in approximately 1977-78. I thought it was expensive at the time, but the warranty was too good to pass up, and I have only once had to use it when a handle broke. They immediately returned a completely new pan to me, no questions asked. I am STILL using this MARVELOUS cookware!

I purchased my first set of the Kitchen Craft Cookware in 1971 (I was 16 and it was my first major purchase, around $400.00 for the basic set). In 1990 I was invited to a demo in the home of a friend with the promise of a free dinner. The dinner was amazing and I left there with the complete set including the bake ware, electric oil core skillet, kitchen kutter, roasting pan, slow cooker, indoor smokeless grill, square and round griddle and wok. I have every size pot and skillet imaginable. Let me just say that purchase made 26 years ago was the best purchase I have ever made, the cook ware cost me approximately $4000.
My original set I gave to my daughter, and she still uses it today.
I attended a local Home Show over the weekend and watched Cindy give the Kitchen Craft Cookware demo, I really needed a refresher course. I had forgotten about the stack cooking (how could I forget), I forgot what a wonderful tool the kitchen kutter is. Cindy suggested leaving it on the counter, so it would be handy, I set it out as soon as I got home. To think of the money I wasted on all those gadgets for cutting veggies and I had the right tool all these years, THANK YOU CINDY!!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cookware!!!!
I have used this cookware every day since I purchased it. I am a seamstress so I don’t have a lot of time in the kitchen, so I make every minute count and with quick cooking and easy clean up, this cookware fits the bill, and the fact that it is made in the USA is an A-PLUS for me. Thank you Kitchen Craft keep up the good work.

About 10-12 years ago my husband and I purchased a basic set of Kitchen Craft cookware. At the same time we also purchased an amazing vegetable/cheese slicer/grater, which I use at least three times a week!
The cookware is still beautiful and looks as if I just purchased the pans – even the bottoms look like new!! I love the way chicken is released automatically when browning it in the fry pan.
We liked the set so much that two years ago we added another piece to our set, a slow cooker. I love the way the pot is separate from the heater. I can use that pot for other cooking also.
One last advantage of the Kitchen Craft cookware is that I can use the pans on my induction stovetop! None of my old pans will work!
I highly recommend this company’s products!!!

Last year at the local home show, I acquired a new piece of cookware, the gourmet cooker. I have appreciated the fine job this cookware does. Healthful meals is our goal and we are assured of getting the benefit from the quality food we purchase and cook in this cookware. I have especially appreciated being able to make numerous items including bone broth which is new to us.
Cleaning is a breeze once you know the trick.
This is a lifetime investment for your health and well worth the price.

Has to be somewhere at least ten years ago that I was at a home show in Philadelphia and saw the demonstration on these pans. Were they expensive, yes they were, but the idea of cooking with less fat in a faster amount of time was very appealing to both my husband and myself. These pans replaced my Faberware pans that I had been using for many years. I love these pans! I have added a few other pans to the set I purchased years ago at other shows, and always stop to see the demonstrations at these shows to see if there is anything new that I can use. Except for one handle that chipped when the lid fell to the floor, I have not had to replace anything else. The pans are easy to take apart to clean and look great! My daughter can’t wait for the hand-me-downs! I would recommend the investment in these pans, you will never need to buy another set!

In 1964, I purchased my set of Kitchen Craft Stainless Steel Waterless Cookware. I was still living at home and working in a nursing home. A co-worker friend of mine gave my name to a door to door salesman. She had just gotten married and had purchased a set from him. He set up an appointment with me and came and demonstrated the set to me. Needless to say, when he was done, I was sold and purchased my first cookware set from him. As a gift, I received a set of stainless steel silverware.
I got married in 1965 and started using my cookware and silverware. I still have all the pieces but my one quart saucepan is damaged on the bottom of the handle by the metal plate. It still works fine. I will be married 52 years this year and use my cookware every day. Some pieces more than others. It is awesome cookware and is the best purchase, I have ever made. It will be passed on to our three children someday and then they can enjoy cooking with it.

I bought my Waterless cookware in 1972 when I was 23, thought I got sucked in by the Salesman. Much to my surprise, I still have the basic set plus a few other skillets; I absolutely love the cookware and don’t use anything else. My husband bought some non-stick cookware ( not realizing the gem I already had) which was damaged within a few years. Over all these years I’ve only had to replace one lid handle. Besides being waterless, I love the speed with which I can whip up a meal of frozen foods. Plus the ease of cleaning the pans after use.

Just received my cookware yesterday. Used 1 quart sauce pan. Added 1 cup of blueberries and strawberries. Total one cup. Rinsed and drained. Heated on Med (6) till it started to steam then turned down to low (as low as it could go). Set timer for 5 min. It was perfect.
