    I had purchased a $400.00 set of Calphalon pans thinking that the old (1967) Farberware set that I owned was old-fashioned. I really disliked the Calphalon, they scorched easily, were really difficult to clean, and weighed a ton. When getting them out of the cabinet, it took 2 hands to do the lifting. My daughter now has the Calphalon and I have my WONDERFUL Farberware. They clean up like a dream, never scorch, even when cooking pudding or custards. And I don’t need a crane to get them out of the cabinet. I never should have switched. Obviously, a high price tag does not guarantee good quality because the Farberware cost 25% of the more expensive set.

    I do not believe this is real Farberware. I believe it is a fake as the attached pictures will show. I need a prepaid return label. The finish is completely worn off the skillets. The pots are pitted. I will also attach a pot I have had for over 30 years. It looks new. I have ordered dozens of things from Amazon and am pretty well satisfied but these pots and pans are ridiculous. The 5th pan from the last is over 30 years old – no pits, no spots, no wearing of finish. I need a return label sent to my email.

    I purchased Farberware pots and pans 35 years ago and last July, I decided to buy a new set for my new house that we were to move into in August, 2017. I have been very disappointed because the quality is very low in comparison to my old set. The old set had very heavy bottoms and it was difficult to scorch anything in them. The new set, food items burn even on the lowest temperatures. I watch my food closely so it’s not that I wasn’t paying attention and let it burn. Today, I cooked some Tapioca pudding and I was cooking on a low temperature. Immediately it started to stick and burn. I poured the mixture out of the pan and to my surprise, the bottom of the pan had lost its sheen and was pitted. The entire bottom looked like thousands of pimples. I will not be able to use this pan again. Other pans after cooking such things as pasta starts to discolor. I am super disappointed that Amazon and Farberware would sell such an inferior product. I feel it should be replaced with the quality of Farberware the company is known for or my money be refunded. I don’t know if the photo attached shows what I am talking about but even when food burns, one can clean it up and use it again. This one now has a sand paper finish now. Thank you for your reply.

    Don’t let the low price of these pots and pans fool you-they are by far the best you can buy! I owned a set for 40+ years and on a whim, walking through a department store, was seduced by a shiny set of copper-bottomed pots and pans. I gave my old set of Farberware to charity and bought the new copper-bottomed pans. They were truly the worst pots and pans ever! They had rounded sides which made it hard to stir things and because of the thick bottoms took forever to heat. I boiled water in the 3 qt. and it took 40 minutes! I came to Amazon, re-ordered these tried and true Farberware pans and couldn’t be happier. Boiled water-5 min. Do yourself a favor and own a set of these great pots and pans!

    Every time I use these pots and pans on my gas stove I smell a burning plastic smell. I was just boiling water and smelled that same smell turned around and the handle was on fire! I did not have the heat too high for the pan either! Wouldn’t purchase this ever again!

    I purchased this Farberware Classic Stainless Steel 15-Piece Cookware Set set to avoid the formation of metal- or enamel-based discoloration on my new smooth-top range, for which aluminum, copper or enameled pans pose a risk of transfer. Upon first impression the mirror finished exterior and bell-shaped stainless steel lids are just as much art as function (a rarity in a cookware field dominated by utilitarian design aesthetics).The good news? This cookware is nicely weighted — meaning not too heavy. (Opting for premium priced cookware, besides cost, would have also meant added heft, which in turn may increase the risk of cracking a smooth cooktop.) Better yet, these Faberware Classic pots and pans heat much better than my previous copper-bottom cookware thanks to a weighted, flat base in which an aluminum core is used.One thing to note, to buyers who may also purchase this cookware for use on a smooth cooktop, involves the unsuitability of the skillets. Contrary to the description, the skillets are aluminum minus the stainless steel cladding. Moreover, it’s not even clear if the nonstick coating is PFOA-free because the included literature doesn’t say one way or the other. (I do wish Farberware would be clearer on this point. Meanwhile, I have suggested to Amazon that they correct their product description to state that the skillets in these sets are, in fact, aluminum.)When accounting for the fact that I will have to replace the skillets in this 15-piece set — and had no need of the utensils it ships with — the value isn’t quite as good. (As a suggestion to the manufacturer, they ought to substitute the nonstick aluminum skillets in these sets for their stainless Classic skillet 8″ and 10″ counterparts, which are sold separately.)In summary, the strong point, aside from the attractive retro styling, is the evenness of the cooking. The weak point is that the interior stainless has begun to discolor/haze inside of every pan I’ve used over the past week — including a stock pot that was used thus far for nothing more than steaming! While discoloration may be inevitable with long-term heavy use, it should not be characteristic of 18/10 stainless to discolor upon first use! If I had to guess, this downside is a product of two things: 1) the interiors consist of brushed stainless, which likely supplies more surface area for heat/food stains to bind/form, and 2) Chinese-manufacturing, to which I would suggest that all-American corporations, such as Farberware, ought to consider manufacturing stateside. (Given the generous corporate tax cuts and the tariffs that are about to hit Chinese steel, USA-made Classic cookware should not be a pipe dream!) On a final note, I did have an issue with one saucepan handle slightly loose but that was easily remedied by a Phillips-head screwdriver.All-in-all I would say that if you intend on hanging up your pots and pans this set may end up being a pain to keep in as-new condition — short of frequent use of Barkeeper’s Friend. On the other hand, if you value even heating and classic styling and plan on keeping it in a cupboard when not in use, it’s a worthy choice.

    Unlike the ones I have had in the past, the handles on these pots and pans are very slim profile. They are rather uncomfortable. I have used them so I don’t believe I should return them so I will keep them but will probably have to find another set that has a more ergonomic handle. Too bad because Faberware used to be my go to product.

    I bought these thinking Farberware was excellent quality, that is SO not true anymore! I had the 8 qt pan with pits all over it by July, I purchased in May! I returned it to the company ( Farberware) and now the replacement pit and my 4 qt pot is also putting! I am returning them! Totally dissatisfied! It’s so sad quality is forfeited these days!
