Thank you for this excellent product

The gentleman who demonstrated our cookware to us 37 years ago brought his set that he said was about 20 years old. The pots and pans hardly looked used. They were older than I was at the time. He promised it would look that good for us in the future. I am writing to say that THEY DO! After 37 years of daily use I have only had to replace a handle that cracked. Thank you for this excellent product I hope to pass on to my daughter!

Now, I have a beautiful kitchen!

My husband and I were attending almost every home-show locally. We were about to venture into a huge kitchen remodel. That meant no hot meals for approximately 3-4 months. After viewing a demo, I thought my husband wouldn’t even consider spending $$$ on cookware since we were spending $60,000 on our remodel. I was wrong! It turned out to be the best investment ever! I love to cook and the thought of not having a home cooked meal for months was very sad. On the first day without a stove or oven, I was able to prepare a full course meal using your Slo-cooker and electric skillet. My husband was shocked! My kids a little disappointed because they were looking forward to all the fast food. Now, I have a beautiful kitchen! But my husband tells everyone he regrets spending all that money because my meals were just as delicious using your Kitchen Craft Cookware on a small bar area. Thank you for a wonderful product!

Wonderful set

We have used every piece of the set by now. I enjoyed canning with the large 6, 8, and 12 quart pans. I love that the paella skillet is so heavy. The baking pans and sheets really don’t need the extra oiling. I’m using the Kitchen Kutter more than I ever imagined. I don’t regret spending the extra money on this wonderful set.

I love my Kitchen Craft cookware!

Oh my, I cannot say enough about my cookware. It is the best. I believe so strongly that this [set] will last my lifetime, I am willing it to my daughter. There is nothing you can’t cook! I bought my cookware about 10 years ago, and it looks as good as the day I bought it. You will never be sorry you spent the money for this cookware. I know I’m not. My husband was about to be really mad at me, but when it arrived and he saw the construction, and how well it cooks things he was impressed. It was worth every penny!

The best!

I have never had another set of pots and pans in my home.

I have continued to use this set as my primary cookware for all these years.

I have a set of West Bend cookware that I purchased upon graduation from high school in 1960. I have continued to use this set as my primary cookware for all these years. I particularly love the 6-quart dutch oven. The label on my pan is Kitchen Craft Stainless Steel, 18-8 Made in the USA. I believe the original contact came with a lifetime replacement warranty for handles and knobs. The knobs have been long gone for several years but the side handles on the dutch oven have finally started to break down after all these years of use in and out of the oven.

Absolutely delighted

ust wanted to drop a note and tell you how absolutely delighted we are with our cookware. My fiance, Dick Harp, and I bought a set at the state fair in Salem, Oregon a month or so ago. We were impressed with you demonstration and felt that the set was something we could really enjoy. We had recently combined households and, goodness knows, we had enough cookware to last us forever (and it wasn’t bad stuff.) The first thing I made was the pineapple upside down cake. I’ve done my fair share of baking over the years, but I can honestly say that was unequivocally THE BEST I’d ever made. Everything we’ve cooked in the pots and pans has been exceptionally good and it’s with the minimum effort! Dick likes to cook and we share the cooking tasks. He tends to favor the slow cooker meals which are out of this world. They are so much more flavorful with these utensils. Tonight we had fish, corn on the cob and fresh green beans. The fish was moist and the most flavorful I’ve ever cooked. I forgot to put the corn husks in the bottom of the kettle that the corn on the cob and green beans were in, but we still couldn’t believe how tender and delicious the corn was. It was almost like a different vegetable than what we’d eaten before. I’ve never written a testimonial like this before because I’ve never been so impressed with a product before. I just felt I had to share our satisfaction with you. By the way, the old cookware was in the yard sale we did last week! Thanks again,

An investment I should have done many years ago.

The cookware is wonderful. I had given up cooking when I saw the demonstration at the Knoxville Convention Center. I was visiting a friend in Townsend, TN. She had told me about her cookware and how much she loved it. We planned a trip to coincide with the Home and Garden show in Knoxville. I have cooked every day since I received my cookware. I was tired of the same old recipes that I grew up on. Since cooking with this cookware mine and my husband’s appetite has returned for this delicious food. Although I am still learning how to convert recipes for diabetics to this cookware, I am having fun learning. Thanks so much for your wonderful cookware. It is an investment I should have done many years ago.

Thanks for creating such a great stable product!

My kitchen sink flooded while on vacation, thus the water flowed into the open drawer that led to my shelf where I stored my Electric Skillet. Water flooded the skillet, which also contained the Probe Controller (E23049) #E867. I believe the water sat there for 4 months before I pulled it out to use. It was full of stinky, slimy water therefore I took it apart, applied some WD-40 lubricant and it still WORKED! Thanks for creating such a great stable product!

Absolutely wonderful

My husband and I were just over at the Venture County Fair. We watched one of your cooking demonstrations. I just wanted to say the girl who did the presentation, Denise Duncan, was absolutely wonderful. I’m in my high eighties and I’ve watched cooking demonstrations all my life. Denis has a wonderful personality. She was really friendly and she could convey all about the cookware and all in such a lovely way. She put on a long demonstration, and nobody left. We all enjoyed it. I just thought her higher ups should know that. She is such an asset to your company. It was a joy to watch her. You certainly do have beautiful cookware. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I just want to say thank you and give Denise a good plug, because she certainly deserves it. And of course, we got to sample the food, too.

Amazing.

Amazing. Simply amazing.

Good investment

I have owned your product for 35 years. I still use the pots and pans and they look very good. I don’t remember what I paid for them, however, it was a good investment.

Now it is easier and faster for me to keep frozen chicken and veggies on hand

Just wanted to share my story with you. Last year my parents and I were at a home show where you were doing demos. My parents already had a set of Americraft Cookware they loves and after your demo they gave me a set for Christmas. I have lost 60 pounds since then and I owe it all to the cookware and recipes! I work two jobs and am single so quick and easy food in important. It was often just easier/faster for me to go through a drive through for fast food at lunch and or dinner than trying to change recipes for 1 serving and plan out meals. Now that I have Americraft, that is not true. Now it is easier and faster for me to keep frozen chicken and veggies on hand and throw them in the pan than it is to go through a drive through! I love all the compliments that I get when I go out about how good I look. I feel better and get more done in a day. I also have less digestion problems. I really owe it all to Americraft as I didn’t change anything else in my lifestyle. My favorite lunch if your chicken salad, which I typically make with cashews and grapes or dried cherries, and olive oil mayo. It is cheaper and more healthy, easier to make than buying it. My favorite dinner is a chicken breast, 1/2 a yam or potato, and a handful of veggies (typically broccoli) which I just take from freezer to pan. Thank you for helping me drop the toddler I’d been carrying around with me for years. I like to think that Americraft cooked off 60 pounds. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Thanks, again!

My fiance and I worked on that pan with a few different cleaners after the water stain affected it, including ketchup and lemon juice. Well, low and behold, the pan looks just as good as it did before the accident! It is the one pan that I have used several times a week for 45 years, so it was not a perfect one. Most of the set is as shiny and pretty, as it was to begin with. The egg poacher still looks like brand new and was not effected. I just thank God that it was one of your company’s pans that overheated, because a cheaper brand may have shattered or melted on the glass top stove. Thank you for responding to my inquiry in such a timely manner. Keep well. Thanks, again!

I love my cookware. I’ve had it almost 2 years now and still feel so blessed to have such wonderful cookware. Thank you!

I think that everything I ever want to cook can be done with Kitchen Craft utensils.

Would you like to hear about how I sing (or talk) about Kitchen Craft? I hope so! It’s only been a short while for me to experience the easy tasty treats. During the demonstration, the cooking show host emphasized to me the value of lower temperature and no additional water! Getting to taste the variety of vegetables and meat left me in the know. When I came to understand that the natural moisture content of these foods and a low heat setting combined with the high tech construction of the pans is all one needs to cook with Kitchen Craft Cookware. I was able to see that spices and rubs and other seasonings are not necessary. The taste is already there. One just needs to know how to preserve it. In my Customer Care Certificate (which I think I should have handed in at the demonstration,) I did tell how the waterless demonstration affected me right after the Farm and Ranch Show close to where I live at Wichita, Kansas. I praise the delicious flavor the utensils bring out in the food. Also, it is a good a selling point that one can buy a lifetime product and that if something should happen there will be no additional cost it would be under warranty. I have additional praise now that I see that the utensils do the same for me as how was talked about. Unfortunately, the Basic set, with all its extra features of the Kitchen Kutter, Gourmet Skillet, Gourmet Slow cooker, and white bowl almost didn’t get delivered on time. I’m happy to report that I did get it in sufficient time, but the salesman spent a good quantity of his tracking and talking skills when it mattered most to this customer to have the shipment by Christmas. Thanks go to not only Kitchen Craft but to the salesman, James Glendenning, too. The Gourmet Slow Cooker, which I easily renamed the Slow Cook Crock Pot, was used Christmas Eve with a turkey-noodle mixture. I raised and served 24 frozen whole wheat rolls on the double burner griddle (seems like the company wants to retire it.) I have also taken a large frozen pizza, given it a slice through the middle, and stretched the halves so that all the crust lays flat and served also on the same surface. Pizza is a finger food for us so I used a plastic knife for slicing the smaller pieces. It took a second batch of corn-on-the-cob before I understood how to “brown” food. I used the Kitchen Kutter and I thought the suction self stand was a really good feature. You have an amazingly good lifetime warranty! I can’t stack four units together like chef at the demonstration, but each of my kids (each received three pieces of the Basic Set) would do it for me if I asked. It was impressed to me, in both my Home Economics class in high school and in Emporia State Teacher’s College, the value of not throwing away water from cooking utensils and of watching to preserve vitamins and minerals that are just below the surface of the skin in vegetables. I learned to be mindful of healthy cooking. I think that you made real good selection of the Farm and Ranch show as a venue for the demonstration I watched, because we farmers are the roots eating healthy and conserving water. People need to know about these things. I’m finishing up this account of the use and features of my Kitchen Craft. My next point is concerning my way of cooking oatmeal: when I bring the steel-cut oatmeal up to a boil will the heat produced be enough to cook? I think that everything I ever want to cook can be done with Kitchen Craft utensils. I checked the YES box on the returned Certificate because I wanted to read more recipes. My girl and hubby did the pineapple upside down cake. They loved the taste.

A hope chest dealer came to my door more than 30 years ago and made me an offer I could not refuse

I am so glad that I found your website. A hope chest dealer came to my door more than 30 years ago and made me an offer I could not refuse. Being 18 and engaged to be married, I thought it would be a great investment to purchase your cookware. I cannot remember what I paid for it, but I remember making monthly payments. As a young girl, it was a large purchase for me; I was just a waitress in a small restaurant in Negaunee, MI. But today, I’m 48, still married, and still using your cookware. I feel it was all worth it.

My wife cooks with them every single day

My wife and I purchased our waterless cookware at the Oregon State Fair approximately 5 years ago from Denise Duncan. We had a week or more of buyer’s remorse after the Fair and before our cookware arrived at our door for spending so much money on pots and pans. However, my wife cooks with them every single day, and we absolutely love the results. We have no regrets on the purchase, and as you know we actually purchased another $2000 worth last night, some for us and some as starter gifts for our children. As a veteran of the US Army (38 years worth), I am proud to buy such a quality Made in America product. Thank you. (Gary tells me that you now offer military emblems in the top of the lid handles, so our new purchases will be sporting them great idea thanks for honoring the military!) As promised, I have attached photos of the wall rack I built for my wife’s cookware. We frequently get comments and compliments from our guests. As a bonus, after the meal, Elaine gets compliments on her cooking. The holders for the lids on the wall rack are drawer-pulls (set deep enough to hold the lids securely), and the holders for the short grabber handles are stainless door hinge pins.

Nothing else compares!

We bought our set 40 years ago. Once you’ve had the best nothing else compares!

Cooking entire meals is quick and easy

My son and I attended a show at a festival in November of 2004. I don’t know who was more excited when we received the cookware my son or me. We both love to cook with it. It was a very good investment. Cooking entire meals is quick and easy with this cookware. Did I mention that my son is 13?

It truly is an investment

I was diagnose with Cancer twice within 6 months of each other and attended my first demonstration one month before my first surgery. I purchased a whole set on the payment plan. I have always cooked with whole foods and this cookware seem to be the natural next step to taking control of my health. I would never give my cookware up. I love it! My recipes are so much better and you wouldn’t believe how the flavor is enhanced using this cookware. We are going to be moving to Florida and this cookware is going with me. My next purchase will be some of the bake ware. I would recommend this cookware to everyone. Well worth the investment! After purchasing mine; I found that my neighbor’s mother had purchased this cookware years ago and she has now inherited it and loves it as well. It truly is an investment.

SO glad to have my Kitchen Craft cookware

My oven has been out of order for two weeks now. I’m SOOOOOOOO glad to have my Kitchen Craft cookware as I can do so much with it. [I] made the pineapple upside down cake since I haven’t baked any goodies lately and MAN it is good!

5/5
Thanks for the good value of your product

Just a note about my cookware. I bought a complete set of your cookware along with a set of china at a home showing in my Mother and Dad’s home when I was 21 years old. I am now 78 years old and have cooked in it all my married life. I have all the pieces and have used them the whole time I have been married since I was 24 yrs. old. I also have all the china. The cookware is still in excellent condition except for one handle on the smallest pan, but it is still useable I have always cooked a lot and still do. Just wanted to let you know what a good set of pans you have. And I will probably pass them down to one of my grandchildren someday. I would recommend these pans to anyone who is planning on buying for themselves or for a wedding gift for their children. Most people I know have bought several sets of cookware and most have had to buy sets of cookware again and some more the second time. Thanks for the good value of your product. I still love cooking in them.

Quality!

We are very proud of our stainless steel West Bend cookware. Having worked in the food industry since the end of WWII, it is a delight to own such a high quality stainless steel system that is made here in the USA.

I highly recommend that cooks everywhere take advantage of this superior product

I originally purchased the full set of Kitchen Craft soon after graduation from high school. At that time salesmen where going to your home. I kept the boxes under my bed at my parents’ home for a while, until I moved to my own apartment. I began using them daily and have used them since. Last month I sent back two pans that had lost their handles. Your company replaced these 50 year old pans with new ones! I can’t tell you how happy I am to have made such a wise decision when I was so young. I would recommend your product to anyone. I now live with my sister, who does most of the cooking. We have the large skillet that she loves. It has become warped over the years; however she refuses to part with it long enough to mail it to you for replacement. That is how happy she still is with it regardless of the condition of the outside bottom! Again, I am very satisfied with the pans and highly recommend that cooks everywhere take advantage of this superior product and warranty!

5/5
Looks as good as new

I bought my set of Kitchen Craft cookware when I a junior in college. My mother thought it was a foolish investment at that time. I have never regretted my decision. I love to cook. Today I replaced the handles on the fry pans and sauce pans. Cooking with gas has finally taken it’s toll. My cookware is 48 years old and looks as good as the day I took it out of the box. I wouldn’t cook with anything else.

5/5
Thanks!

I just had to let you know about the meal we just had, that my wife Cathy made in twenty minutes using the Kitchen Craft Cookware we purchased at you Orlando show. Cathy prepared haddock fillets, seasoned with a drop of olive oil, Seafood Seasoning (Farmer Bros.) and a little oregano leaf. She also prepared fresh broccoli (on low is all you need to know.) I have never had broccoli with such natural color and flavor. The haddock flaked just perfectly. Another quick message about the sausage Cathy made the other day for breakfast. She made our usual sausage (but with no grease or water added.) I asked where she got the “great new type of sausage,) and she laughed and said that it was what we always have. When you make such an investment as two sets you wonder if you made a good move. Now my only thought is “Why did I wait so many years to purchase the magnificent cookware?”. An added extra, blood pressure had dropped ten points since going grease-less. Thanks and we look forward to your email updates.

Our cookware has served us faithfully for all these 48 years

In 1968 we were talked into hosting a home demonstration of waterless cookware by our cousin’s new salesman husband. We had been married for 5 years and could hardly afford tin cans much less expensive cookware, but arm-twisting was applied by family and we agreed to host a show. This was our cousin’s husband’s first show and he was extremely nervous. None of the invitees were inclined to make a purchase, including us. However, upon leaving our home the dejected salesman spied our little sports car and with inquiry we agreed to trade the car for a set of pots and pans. When our salesman returned he presented us with the set of cookware and took possession of the car. Our cookware has served us faithfully for all these 48 years and are used almost daily. The sports car, well it wouldn’t start and we had to push it to get it started and it probably was made into tin cans.

Super!

Super! They last for many generations. They look the same as they did 34 years ago. I love to stack them up and cook!

54 years later, still great!

In 1963 I purchased the basic set of Kitchen Craft stainless cookware plus a bonus set of flatware which I am using yet today, 54 years later. The purchase price was $245, which also included the electric skillet with liquid core. The pans are just as bright and shiny as the day I purchased them. We also feel it’s healthier steaming vegetables and using stainless cookware as we have no health issues being in the upper seventies. Thanks

5/5
Thank you for everything!

We went to a demonstration of your products at a friend’s home in 1983. We were so impressed by the display that we purchased a set. Since that time we have never had to purchase any other cookware. Your cookware has probably been the best purchase we have made since then. We promote all of your pieces to everyone. Thank you for everything!

5/5
I truly believe you have a winner in the Kitchen Craft line!

I love the fact that I don’t have to use any oil or butter when cooking. I made chicken breasts that were some of the best I’ve had! I definitely share your information with my foods students here at Badger Middle School. I truly believe you have a winner in the Kitchen Craft line!

First use a success!

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.

4/5
Worth the money!

When I purchased this set, I kept thinking, God, I hope it was worth the money. Well, it was and still is. I love the fact that I don’t have to use oil or water. The meats come out so tender and full of juice, and the vegetables don’t lose any of their nutrients.

Awesome cookware

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.

5/5
Best purchase I've ever made

I purchased your cookware on impulse years ago. I was a young girl not even yet out on my own. It was the best purchase I ever made. I use it every day. It has moved with me through 6 states and I couldn’t imagine using anything else. I recommend it to everyone.

Great for health!

I lost 20 pounds and my cholesterol is down over 100 points! I wish I had known Bill & Patty (Kitchen Craft Distributors) sooner! I wish you had a dozen more just like them. Thanks again!

Thank you!

As my cookware is now 53 years old, I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed using it and that it is in very good shape for its age. Also have the Knife set that came with it and it’s still in good shape, except for one piece missing. Thank you for such a good product!

You will never need to buy another set!

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!

Thanksgiving in the Slo-Cooker

I just made a boneless turkey breast, cut up potatoes, and corn in the Slo-Cooker. The turkey is the juiciest one I have ever tasted. The potatoes and corn don’t need any butter, they soaked up the juices from the turkey, and minimal water was used. Thanksgiving dinner for two is perfect in the slow cooker. I would recommend this cookware to anyone!

5/5
Best quality

I just wanted to say that I’ve had an original set since 1951. I just found my instruction book and wasn’t sure if you were still in business. I’ve enjoyed your cookware ever since way back then and to this day I haven’t seen the quality to top your product. I still use them every day. Just thought maybe you would be interested to know that after all these years, you are still the best.

5/5
Thanks for many years of service

I was going through some old cookbooks and found a booklet with Recipes and Instructions for Stainless Steel Cookware by Kitchen Craft. I looked you up on the web to see if you are still in business and was surprised to find you. I thought you would like to hear my story. I bought a complete set of cookware while still in high school in 1955 and almost FIFTY YEARS LATER I am still using them, they still look like a new set of cookware! In fact, they look better than most of what I see in the stores now. Only problem I had with the set was a knob on the small saucepan cracked and thanks to your website, we found a knob to replace it with. Thanks for many years of service.

Lasts a lifetime!

My cookware is awesome! You would not believe how it looks after all these years. She said it would last a lifetime but I just thought it was a sales pitch. I was 19 when I bought it. My mother used some of the pieces for a few years but I have it back now and I am 66. The cookware looks great and cooks great. Thank you for an awesome product that has stood the test of time.

Well worth the money!!!

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!!!

Great cooking class!!

We attended Bruce and Mary’s cooking class fantastic! Rated A++ from 2 retired teachers! Would love to take more. We had to leave in order to get to a wedding and made it there just 3 minutes before the bride came down the aisle! We are feeling more confident about the cookware use since this fabulous class. Cute couple with great sense of humor! We are looking forward to someday taking another class. The next time, we hopefully will not be rushing out the door to get to a wedding! Thanks for the great class. Very worthwhile.

Thank you for a great product

I purchased a set for my mother in 1963 and received it back from the estate after her passing. I was thrilled to learn they were still under warranty. This information was shared at a recent show I attended in New Orleans. Your representatives were very helpful and I am looking forward to many more years of service. West Bend Cookware is the finest I have experienced. Since we live in South Louisiana and cooking is such a part of our culture, nothing does it better than Kitchen Craft! Thanks for producing such a great product.

A wonderful product!

Dear Kitchen Craft: When we first married in February of 1958, we lived in the small town of Ypsilanti, Michigan. We didn’t have much money and rented an apartment. One day a real nice door-to-door salesman came by to sell pots and pans. We didn’t have [any] but one we got from the five & dime store. He said we could make a small monthly payment, which we did for about a year. I had never seen such shiny and beautiful pans in my life. Those pans have lived in 5 different states and cooked for us and our 5 children for 50 years! They still cook everything just right. Thank you for making such a wonderful product!

5/5
Best kitchen purchase EVER!

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!!!

Kitchen Craft makes the best veggies!

I want to thank you for taking the time to speak to me the other day. I have been cooking like crazy since we spoke and I can’t tell you how much I enjoy veggies now! I can’t believe how well they taste! I can’t believe it! I made mashed potatoes; they tasted like I never tasted potatoes before and I am not a potatoes type person! Then I made summer squash, zucchini, a little onion, carrots, and some broccoli, yummmm! I can’t believe how much more taste is in the veggies! What a difference! Back when I was in my early 20’s and going to get married, I went to a demonstration on your waterless cookware and decided to purchase it; but the next day changed my mind and canceled it. Why? Cost. Here I am 30 some years later and I bought my first waterless cookware and could kick myself for not buying way back then.oh well! Anyways, thank you again. And, I may still call from time to time to speak to you about cooking. And if in the upcoming year you see cooking classes being scheduled for people like me, and if you remember, please forward the classes to me. Thank you again!

Lifetime Kitchen Craft user

I noticed Kitchen Craft is listed as a presenting company with a booth at our Home Show. It was quite a surprise to see and recognize the company name. The set of Kitchen Craft cookware that I purchased in 1957 is the cookware I still use today! 47 years later! I purchased the set in Washington, D. C. paying for it $5 a week out of a $45 week paycheck. As you can imagine, I took cookware seriously to invest such a large portion of my income to it! I hope someone in your company will take time to enjoy my message and the amazement of this nearly half a century Kitchen Craft user! It would be interesting to know if you receive many other lifetime stories such as mine. Congratulations and Sincere Best Wishes!

Top of the line cookware

Thank you for the speedy repair of my cook-pot and lid. They look fantastic! Your service is great! Buying your cookware shortly after we were married in 1961 was one the best things we ever did. The pots were always top of the line, and they have lasted through the years. Our daughters received other brands of cookware as gifts, and there is no comparison in quality and durability.

My best decision!

I had just graduated from college in 1966 and had my first teaching job. I was single and had rented an upstairs bedroom and only had access to the landlord’s downstairs kitchen. A very, very young good looking salesman knocked on the door and informed me that he was selling Kitchen Craft. I still do not know if he had acquired my name or if he just happened to stop by. I had never heard of the cookware but after his demonstration, I could not resist . I purchased the entire set of the stainless steel Kitchen Craft. The set included: 8 pieces with 5 lids; 9 inch square cake pan; 9 inch round cake pan; electric skillet; 3 stainless steel mixing bowls; 8 place setting of Royal Sovereign fine china (Forever Yours pattern); 8 place setting of West Bend silverware; cookie sheet; 9 inch pie pan; stainless steel serving bowl. I have forgotten the price but I made monthly payments for a while. Today, I still have all the items except for the round cake pan and a few pieces of broken china (my husband just broke the last dessert bowl as I am writing this). The round cake pan was mistakenly taken at a church function and I was left with an aluminum cake pan. Over the years I made the mistake of placing the cookware in the electric dishwasher and the handles began to crack. I just happened to come in contact with an old friend who was actually still selling Kitchen Craft. He mentioned that the company would replace the handles free of charge, but I would have to pay for the shipping charges. By way of the computer and phone, I contacted the company and now every piece of my cookware has a new handle. I love my Kitchen Craft items and use several of them everyday. I am so glad that salesman came to see me fifty years ago! I really don’t know if I made the purchase because he was so handsome or if I was thinking of my future empty kitchen. All I know is that I made a very wise decision! I plan to will my Kitchen Craft to my great niece because she took an interest in cooking at such a young age.

A lifetime investment!

We bought our set of cookware back in the early 80’s. It took us to another level of healthy cooking. Now we are whole-food plant based advocates and our old cookware still does a great job. I have replaced some of the handles & nobs but the pans are as good as new. A lifetime investment!

Best products in the world!

Best products in the world! [I] have purchased six sets for the whole Family! We all try to out cook each other but [we] can’t because the cookware does all the cooking and you just can’t beat it! Thank you for a great product!

10+ years of use!

We have been very pleased with our Kitchen Craft Cookware. Over ten years ago we made an impulse purchase of the cookware after being impressed with the product being demonstrated at the New Jersey State Fair. It was a significant investment but it was well worth it. It cleans beautifully, even if something burns (unintentionally of course). The hot pan can go right into the sink to soak, and it looks new again after being washed. I really like being able to cook vegetables with little or no water, to maintain the nutrients. It’s not inexpensive but the quality is there, and it should be considered an investment which will last a very long time, and make cooking a pleasure.

The miracle kitchen set

During a move, my husband and I were taking boxes from the kitchen to the truck. My husband decided to place the Kitchen Craft Cookware box on the stove while he took care of some other things. When he set the box down, he accidentally turned on the stove and didn’t know. Next thing we know the house goes up in flames and our cookware was destroyed, so we thought. After examining the rubbish and retrieving everything we could, I decided to try to clean up my once beautiful cookware. With a little Cameo and a lot of elbow grease I was ecstatic when my cookware turned out good as new! In fact, I kept the cord for the Electric Skillet inside of the unit and when I took the top off the skillet, the cord had not been damaged and it still works! The only evidence that my cookware has been in a fire is that a few of the handles are a bit melted. WOW!

Lasts a lifetime

1980, yes 1980 my husband and I went to a cookware party at our friends house and bought this complete set of cookware including the electric fry pan. Now, 2017 I am still using the same cookware. It speaks for itself and yes I do cook, they aren’t just sitting in my cabinet. I have purchased a pot or two from stores because I liked the color they came in but they are long gone, didn’t hold-up. While we could not afford to pay for the set upfront we made payments on them and to this day we do not regret spending the money because of the excellent quality. I mean what do you have in your house that you bought in 1980 and still works? I don’t have anything other than this incredible set of pots and pans.

Made in the USA!

This is the best and most energy saving cookware I’ve ever used. The food is just awesome when cooked with this cookware. Most of the meals I’ve cooked take about 30 minutes for 2 people with no hassle whatsoever. It used to take about 1 hour to cook the same meal and it wasn’t anything to talk about not to mention the energy for 30 more minutes. Now I’ve been talking and talking a lot about these kitchen tools that surpass the very best. Thanks for being the greatest and MADE IN USA! YES!

Best kitchen purchase EVER!

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!!!

A wonderful product!

Dear Kitchen Craft: When we first married in February of 1958, we lived in the small town of Ypsilanti, Michigan. We didn’t have much money and rented an apartment. One day a real nice door-to-door salesman came by to sell pots and pans. We didn’t have [any] but one we got from the five & dime store. He said we could make a small monthly payment, which we did for about a year. I had never seen such shiny and beautiful pans in my life. Those pans have lived in 5 different states and cooked for us and our 5 children for 50 years! They still cook everything just right. Thank you for making such a wonderful product!

Kitchen Craft makes the best veggies!

I want to thank you for taking the time to speak to me the other day. I have been cooking like crazy since we spoke and I can’t tell you how much I enjoy veggies now! I can’t believe how well they taste! I can’t believe it! I made mashed potatoes; they tasted like I never tasted potatoes before and I am not a potatoes type person! Then I made summer squash, zucchini, a little onion, carrots, and some broccoli, yummmm! I can’t believe how much more taste is in the veggies! What a difference! Back when I was in my early 20’s and going to get married, I went to a demonstration on your waterless cookware and decided to purchase it; but the next day changed my mind and canceled it. Why? Cost. Here I am 30 some years later and I bought my first waterless cookware and could kick myself for not buying way back then.oh well! Anyways, thank you again. And, I may still call from time to time to speak to you about cooking. And if in the upcoming year you see cooking classes being scheduled for people like me, and if you remember, please forward the classes to me. Thank you again!

Lasts a lifetime!

My cookware is awesome! You would not believe how it looks after all these years. She said it would last a lifetime but I just thought it was a sales pitch. I was 19 when I bought it. My mother used some of the pieces for a few years but I have it back now and I am 66. The cookware looks great and cooks great. Thank you for an awesome product that has stood the test of time.

Great cooking class!!

We attended Bruce and Mary’s cooking class fantastic! Rated A++ from 2 retired teachers! Would love to take more. We had to leave in order to get to a wedding and made it there just 3 minutes before the bride came down the aisle! We are feeling more confident about the cookware use since this fabulous class. Cute couple with great sense of humor! We are looking forward to someday taking another class. The next time, we hopefully will not be rushing out the door to get to a wedding! Thanks for the great class. Very worthwhile.

You will never need to buy another set!

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!

Thank you!

As my cookware is now 53 years old, I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed using it and that it is in very good shape for its age. Also have the Knife set that came with it and it’s still in good shape, except for one piece missing. Thank you for such a good product!

Thanksgiving in the Slo-Cooker

I just made a boneless turkey breast, cut up potatoes, and corn in the Slo-Cooker. The turkey is the juiciest one I have ever tasted. The potatoes and corn don’t need any butter, they soaked up the juices from the turkey, and minimal water was used. Thanksgiving dinner for two is perfect in the slow cooker. I would recommend this cookware to anyone!

Best quality

I just wanted to say that I’ve had an original set since 1951. I just found my instruction book and wasn’t sure if you were still in business. I’ve enjoyed your cookware ever since way back then and to this day I haven’t seen the quality to top your product. I still use them every day. Just thought maybe you would be interested to know that after all these years, you are still the best.

Thank you for a great product

I purchased a set for my mother in 1963 and received it back from the estate after her passing. I was thrilled to learn they were still under warranty. This information was shared at a recent show I attended in New Orleans. Your representatives were very helpful and I am looking forward to many more years of service. West Bend Cookware is the finest I have experienced. Since we live in South Louisiana and cooking is such a part of our culture, nothing does it better than Kitchen Craft! Thanks for producing such a great product.

Thanks for many years of service

I was going through some old cookbooks and found a booklet with Recipes and Instructions for Stainless Steel Cookware by Kitchen Craft. I looked you up on the web to see if you are still in business and was surprised to find you. I thought you would like to hear my story. I bought a complete set of cookware while still in high school in 1955 and almost FIFTY YEARS LATER I am still using them, they still look like a new set of cookware! In fact, they look better than most of what I see in the stores now. Only problem I had with the set was a knob on the small saucepan cracked and thanks to your website, we found a knob to replace it with. Thanks for many years of service.

Best purchase I've ever made

I purchased your cookware on impulse years ago. I was a young girl not even yet out on my own. It was the best purchase I ever made. I use it every day. It has moved with me through 6 states and I couldn’t imagine using anything else. I recommend it to everyone.

Awesome cookware

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.

First use a success!

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.

I truly believe you have a winner in the Kitchen Craft line!

I love the fact that I don’t have to use any oil or butter when cooking. I made chicken breasts that were some of the best I’ve had! I definitely share your information with my foods students here at Badger Middle School. I truly believe you have a winner in the Kitchen Craft line!

Thank you for everything!

We went to a demonstration of your products at a friend’s home in 1983. We were so impressed by the display that we purchased a set. Since that time we have never had to purchase any other cookware. Your cookware has probably been the best purchase we have made since then. We promote all of your pieces to everyone. Thank you for everything!

54 years later, still great!

In 1963 I purchased the basic set of Kitchen Craft stainless cookware plus a bonus set of flatware which I am using yet today, 54 years later. The purchase price was $245, which also included the electric skillet with liquid core. The pans are just as bright and shiny as the day I purchased them. We also feel it’s healthier steaming vegetables and using stainless cookware as we have no health issues being in the upper seventies. Thanks

Super! They last for many generations. They look the same as they did 34 years ago. I love to stack them up and cook!

Our cookware has served us faithfully for all these 48 years

In 1968 we were talked into hosting a home demonstration of waterless cookware by our cousin’s new salesman husband. We had been married for 5 years and could hardly afford tin cans much less expensive cookware, but arm-twisting was applied by family and we agreed to host a show. This was our cousin’s husband’s first show and he was extremely nervous. None of the invitees were inclined to make a purchase, including us. However, upon leaving our home the dejected salesman spied our little sports car and with inquiry we agreed to trade the car for a set of pots and pans. When our salesman returned he presented us with the set of cookware and took possession of the car. Our cookware has served us faithfully for all these 48 years and are used almost daily. The sports car, well it wouldn’t start and we had to push it to get it started and it probably was made into tin cans.

5/5
Thanks!

I just had to let you know about the meal we just had, that my wife Cathy made in twenty minutes using the Kitchen Craft Cookware we purchased at you Orlando show. Cathy prepared haddock fillets, seasoned with a drop of olive oil, Seafood Seasoning (Farmer Bros.) and a little oregano leaf. She also prepared fresh broccoli (on low is all you need to know.) I have never had broccoli with such natural color and flavor. The haddock flaked just perfectly. Another quick message about the sausage Cathy made the other day for breakfast. She made our usual sausage (but with no grease or water added.) I asked where she got the “great new type of sausage,) and she laughed and said that it was what we always have. When you make such an investment as two sets you wonder if you made a good move. Now my only thought is “Why did I wait so many years to purchase the magnificent cookware?”. An added extra, blood pressure had dropped ten points since going grease-less. Thanks and we look forward to your email updates.

Looks as good as new

I bought my set of Kitchen Craft cookware when I a junior in college. My mother thought it was a foolish investment at that time. I have never regretted my decision. I love to cook. Today I replaced the handles on the fry pans and sauce pans. Cooking with gas has finally taken it’s toll. My cookware is 48 years old and looks as good as the day I took it out of the box. I wouldn’t cook with anything else.

I highly recommend that cooks everywhere take advantage of this superior product

I originally purchased the full set of Kitchen Craft soon after graduation from high school. At that time salesmen where going to your home. I kept the boxes under my bed at my parents’ home for a while, until I moved to my own apartment. I began using them daily and have used them since. Last month I sent back two pans that had lost their handles. Your company replaced these 50 year old pans with new ones! I can’t tell you how happy I am to have made such a wise decision when I was so young. I would recommend your product to anyone. I now live with my sister, who does most of the cooking. We have the large skillet that she loves. It has become warped over the years; however she refuses to part with it long enough to mail it to you for replacement. That is how happy she still is with it regardless of the condition of the outside bottom! Again, I am very satisfied with the pans and highly recommend that cooks everywhere take advantage of this superior product and warranty!

Thanks for the good value of your product

Just a note about my cookware. I bought a complete set of your cookware along with a set of china at a home showing in my Mother and Dad’s home when I was 21 years old. I am now 78 years old and have cooked in it all my married life. I have all the pieces and have used them the whole time I have been married since I was 24 yrs. old. I also have all the china. The cookware is still in excellent condition except for one handle on the smallest pan, but it is still useable I have always cooked a lot and still do. Just wanted to let you know what a good set of pans you have. And I will probably pass them down to one of my grandchildren someday. I would recommend these pans to anyone who is planning on buying for themselves or for a wedding gift for their children. Most people I know have bought several sets of cookware and most have had to buy sets of cookware again and some more the second time. Thanks for the good value of your product. I still love cooking in them.

It truly is an investment

I was diagnose with Cancer twice within 6 months of each other and attended my first demonstration one month before my first surgery. I purchased a whole set on the payment plan. I have always cooked with whole foods and this cookware seem to be the natural next step to taking control of my health. I would never give my cookware up. I love it! My recipes are so much better and you wouldn’t believe how the flavor is enhanced using this cookware. We are going to be moving to Florida and this cookware is going with me. My next purchase will be some of the bake ware. I would recommend this cookware to everyone. Well worth the investment! After purchasing mine; I found that my neighbor’s mother had purchased this cookware years ago and she has now inherited it and loves it as well. It truly is an investment.

My wife cooks with them every single day

My wife and I purchased our waterless cookware at the Oregon State Fair approximately 5 years ago from Denise Duncan. We had a week or more of buyer’s remorse after the Fair and before our cookware arrived at our door for spending so much money on pots and pans. However, my wife cooks with them every single day, and we absolutely love the results. We have no regrets on the purchase, and as you know we actually purchased another $2000 worth last night, some for us and some as starter gifts for our children. As a veteran of the US Army (38 years worth), I am proud to buy such a quality Made in America product. Thank you. (Gary tells me that you now offer military emblems in the top of the lid handles, so our new purchases will be sporting them great idea thanks for honoring the military!) As promised, I have attached photos of the wall rack I built for my wife’s cookware. We frequently get comments and compliments from our guests. As a bonus, after the meal, Elaine gets compliments on her cooking. The holders for the lids on the wall rack are drawer-pulls (set deep enough to hold the lids securely), and the holders for the short grabber handles are stainless door hinge pins.

A hope chest dealer came to my door more than 30 years ago and made me an offer I could not refuse

I am so glad that I found your website. A hope chest dealer came to my door more than 30 years ago and made me an offer I could not refuse. Being 18 and engaged to be married, I thought it would be a great investment to purchase your cookware. I cannot remember what I paid for it, but I remember making monthly payments. As a young girl, it was a large purchase for me; I was just a waitress in a small restaurant in Negaunee, MI. But today, I’m 48, still married, and still using your cookware. I feel it was all worth it.

I think that everything I ever want to cook can be done with Kitchen Craft utensils.

Would you like to hear about how I sing (or talk) about Kitchen Craft? I hope so! It’s only been a short while for me to experience the easy tasty treats. During the demonstration, the cooking show host emphasized to me the value of lower temperature and no additional water! Getting to taste the variety of vegetables and meat left me in the know. When I came to understand that the natural moisture content of these foods and a low heat setting combined with the high tech construction of the pans is all one needs to cook with Kitchen Craft Cookware. I was able to see that spices and rubs and other seasonings are not necessary. The taste is already there. One just needs to know how to preserve it. In my Customer Care Certificate (which I think I should have handed in at the demonstration,) I did tell how the waterless demonstration affected me right after the Farm and Ranch Show close to where I live at Wichita, Kansas. I praise the delicious flavor the utensils bring out in the food. Also, it is a good a selling point that one can buy a lifetime product and that if something should happen there will be no additional cost it would be under warranty. I have additional praise now that I see that the utensils do the same for me as how was talked about. Unfortunately, the Basic set, with all its extra features of the Kitchen Kutter, Gourmet Skillet, Gourmet Slow cooker, and white bowl almost didn’t get delivered on time. I’m happy to report that I did get it in sufficient time, but the salesman spent a good quantity of his tracking and talking skills when it mattered most to this customer to have the shipment by Christmas. Thanks go to not only Kitchen Craft but to the salesman, James Glendenning, too. The Gourmet Slow Cooker, which I easily renamed the Slow Cook Crock Pot, was used Christmas Eve with a turkey-noodle mixture. I raised and served 24 frozen whole wheat rolls on the double burner griddle (seems like the company wants to retire it.) I have also taken a large frozen pizza, given it a slice through the middle, and stretched the halves so that all the crust lays flat and served also on the same surface. Pizza is a finger food for us so I used a plastic knife for slicing the smaller pieces. It took a second batch of corn-on-the-cob before I understood how to “brown” food. I used the Kitchen Kutter and I thought the suction self stand was a really good feature. You have an amazingly good lifetime warranty! I can’t stack four units together like chef at the demonstration, but each of my kids (each received three pieces of the Basic Set) would do it for me if I asked. It was impressed to me, in both my Home Economics class in high school and in Emporia State Teacher’s College, the value of not throwing away water from cooking utensils and of watching to preserve vitamins and minerals that are just below the surface of the skin in vegetables. I learned to be mindful of healthy cooking. I think that you made real good selection of the Farm and Ranch show as a venue for the demonstration I watched, because we farmers are the roots eating healthy and conserving water. People need to know about these things. I’m finishing up this account of the use and features of my Kitchen Craft. My next point is concerning my way of cooking oatmeal: when I bring the steel-cut oatmeal up to a boil will the heat produced be enough to cook? I think that everything I ever want to cook can be done with Kitchen Craft utensils. I checked the YES box on the returned Certificate because I wanted to read more recipes. My girl and hubby did the pineapple upside down cake. They loved the taste.

Now it is easier and faster for me to keep frozen chicken and veggies on hand

Just wanted to share my story with you. Last year my parents and I were at a home show where you were doing demos. My parents already had a set of Americraft Cookware they loves and after your demo they gave me a set for Christmas. I have lost 60 pounds since then and I owe it all to the cookware and recipes! I work two jobs and am single so quick and easy food in important. It was often just easier/faster for me to go through a drive through for fast food at lunch and or dinner than trying to change recipes for 1 serving and plan out meals. Now that I have Americraft, that is not true. Now it is easier and faster for me to keep frozen chicken and veggies on hand and throw them in the pan than it is to go through a drive through! I love all the compliments that I get when I go out about how good I look. I feel better and get more done in a day. I also have less digestion problems. I really owe it all to Americraft as I didn’t change anything else in my lifestyle. My favorite lunch if your chicken salad, which I typically make with cashews and grapes or dried cherries, and olive oil mayo. It is cheaper and more healthy, easier to make than buying it. My favorite dinner is a chicken breast, 1/2 a yam or potato, and a handful of veggies (typically broccoli) which I just take from freezer to pan. Thank you for helping me drop the toddler I’d been carrying around with me for years. I like to think that Americraft cooked off 60 pounds. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Good investment

I have owned your product for 35 years. I still use the pots and pans and they look very good. I don’t remember what I paid for them, however, it was a good investment.

Amazing.

Amazing. Simply amazing.

Absolutely wonderful

My husband and I were just over at the Venture County Fair. We watched one of your cooking demonstrations. I just wanted to say the girl who did the presentation, Denise Duncan, was absolutely wonderful. I’m in my high eighties and I’ve watched cooking demonstrations all my life. Denis has a wonderful personality. She was really friendly and she could convey all about the cookware and all in such a lovely way. She put on a long demonstration, and nobody left. We all enjoyed it. I just thought her higher ups should know that. She is such an asset to your company. It was a joy to watch her. You certainly do have beautiful cookware. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I just want to say thank you and give Denise a good plug, because she certainly deserves it. And of course, we got to sample the food, too.

Thanks for creating such a great stable product!

My kitchen sink flooded while on vacation, thus the water flowed into the open drawer that led to my shelf where I stored my Electric Skillet. Water flooded the skillet, which also contained the Probe Controller (E23049) #E867. I believe the water sat there for 4 months before I pulled it out to use. It was full of stinky, slimy water therefore I took it apart, applied some WD-40 lubricant and it still WORKED! Thanks for creating such a great stable product!

An investment I should have done many years ago.

The cookware is wonderful. I had given up cooking when I saw the demonstration at the Knoxville Convention Center. I was visiting a friend in Townsend, TN. She had told me about her cookware and how much she loved it. We planned a trip to coincide with the Home and Garden show in Knoxville. I have cooked every day since I received my cookware. I was tired of the same old recipes that I grew up on. Since cooking with this cookware mine and my husband’s appetite has returned for this delicious food. Although I am still learning how to convert recipes for diabetics to this cookware, I am having fun learning. Thanks so much for your wonderful cookware. It is an investment I should have done many years ago.

Absolutely delighted

ust wanted to drop a note and tell you how absolutely delighted we are with our cookware. My fiance, Dick Harp, and I bought a set at the state fair in Salem, Oregon a month or so ago. We were impressed with you demonstration and felt that the set was something we could really enjoy. We had recently combined households and, goodness knows, we had enough cookware to last us forever (and it wasn’t bad stuff.) The first thing I made was the pineapple upside down cake. I’ve done my fair share of baking over the years, but I can honestly say that was unequivocally THE BEST I’d ever made. Everything we’ve cooked in the pots and pans has been exceptionally good and it’s with the minimum effort! Dick likes to cook and we share the cooking tasks. He tends to favor the slow cooker meals which are out of this world. They are so much more flavorful with these utensils. Tonight we had fish, corn on the cob and fresh green beans. The fish was moist and the most flavorful I’ve ever cooked. I forgot to put the corn husks in the bottom of the kettle that the corn on the cob and green beans were in, but we still couldn’t believe how tender and delicious the corn was. It was almost like a different vegetable than what we’d eaten before. I’ve never written a testimonial like this before because I’ve never been so impressed with a product before. I just felt I had to share our satisfaction with you. By the way, the old cookware was in the yard sale we did last week! Thanks again,

The best!

I have never had another set of pots and pans in my home.

I love my Kitchen Craft cookware!

Oh my, I cannot say enough about my cookware. It is the best. I believe so strongly that this [set] will last my lifetime, I am willing it to my daughter. There is nothing you can’t cook! I bought my cookware about 10 years ago, and it looks as good as the day I bought it. You will never be sorry you spent the money for this cookware. I know I’m not. My husband was about to be really mad at me, but when it arrived and he saw the construction, and how well it cooks things he was impressed. It was worth every penny!

5/5
Wonderful set

We have used every piece of the set by now. I enjoyed canning with the large 6, 8, and 12 quart pans. I love that the paella skillet is so heavy. The baking pans and sheets really don’t need the extra oiling. I’m using the Kitchen Kutter more than I ever imagined. I don’t regret spending the extra money on this wonderful set.

Now, I have a beautiful kitchen!

My husband and I were attending almost every home-show locally. We were about to venture into a huge kitchen remodel. That meant no hot meals for approximately 3-4 months. After viewing a demo, I thought my husband wouldn’t even consider spending $$$ on cookware since we were spending $60,000 on our remodel. I was wrong! It turned out to be the best investment ever! I love to cook and the thought of not having a home cooked meal for months was very sad. On the first day without a stove or oven, I was able to prepare a full course meal using your Slo-cooker and electric skillet. My husband was shocked! My kids a little disappointed because they were looking forward to all the fast food. Now, I have a beautiful kitchen! But my husband tells everyone he regrets spending all that money because my meals were just as delicious using your Kitchen Craft Cookware on a small bar area. Thank you for a wonderful product!

Thank you for this excellent product

The gentleman who demonstrated our cookware to us 37 years ago brought his set that he said was about 20 years old. The pots and pans hardly looked used. They were older than I was at the time. He promised it would look that good for us in the future. I am writing to say that THEY DO! After 37 years of daily use I have only had to replace a handle that cracked. Thank you for this excellent product I hope to pass on to my daughter!

A lifetime investment!

We bought our set of cookware back in the early 80’s. It took us to another level of healthy cooking. Now we are whole-food plant based advocates and our old cookware still does a great job. I have replaced some of the handles & nobs but the pans are as good as new. A lifetime investment!

4/5
Top of the line cookware

Thank you for the speedy repair of my cook-pot and lid. They look fantastic! Your service is great! Buying your cookware shortly after we were married in 1961 was one the best things we ever did. The pots were always top of the line, and they have lasted through the years. Our daughters received other brands of cookware as gifts, and there is no comparison in quality and durability.

4/5
Well worth the money!!!

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!!!

Lasts a lifetime

1980, yes 1980 my husband and I went to a cookware party at our friends house and bought this complete set of cookware including the electric fry pan. Now, 2017 I am still using the same cookware. It speaks for itself and yes I do cook, they aren’t just sitting in my cabinet. I have purchased a pot or two from stores because I liked the color they came in but they are long gone, didn’t hold-up. While we could not afford to pay for the set upfront we made payments on them and to this day we do not regret spending the money because of the excellent quality. I mean what do you have in your house that you bought in 1980 and still works? I don’t have anything other than this incredible set of pots and pans.

10+ years of use!

We have been very pleased with our Kitchen Craft Cookware. Over ten years ago we made an impulse purchase of the cookware after being impressed with the product being demonstrated at the New Jersey State Fair. It was a significant investment but it was well worth it. It cleans beautifully, even if something burns (unintentionally of course). The hot pan can go right into the sink to soak, and it looks new again after being washed. I really like being able to cook vegetables with little or no water, to maintain the nutrients. It’s not inexpensive but the quality is there, and it should be considered an investment which will last a very long time, and make cooking a pleasure.

4/5
Worth the money!

When I purchased this set, I kept thinking, God, I hope it was worth the money. Well, it was and still is. I love the fact that I don’t have to use oil or water. The meats come out so tender and full of juice, and the vegetables don’t lose any of their nutrients.

Quality!

We are very proud of our stainless steel West Bend cookware. Having worked in the food industry since the end of WWII, it is a delight to own such a high quality stainless steel system that is made here in the USA.

SO glad to have my Kitchen Craft cookware

My oven has been out of order for two weeks now. I’m SOOOOOOOO glad to have my Kitchen Craft cookware as I can do so much with it. [I] made the pineapple upside down cake since I haven’t baked any goodies lately and MAN it is good!

Nothing else compares!

We bought our set 40 years ago. Once you’ve had the best nothing else compares!

I love my cookware. I’ve had it almost 2 years now and still feel so blessed to have such wonderful cookware. Thank you!

Thanks, again!

My fiance and I worked on that pan with a few different cleaners after the water stain affected it, including ketchup and lemon juice. Well, low and behold, the pan looks just as good as it did before the accident! It is the one pan that I have used several times a week for 45 years, so it was not a perfect one. Most of the set is as shiny and pretty, as it was to begin with. The egg poacher still looks like brand new and was not effected. I just thank God that it was one of your company’s pans that overheated, because a cheaper brand may have shattered or melted on the glass top stove. Thank you for responding to my inquiry in such a timely manner. Keep well. Thanks, again!

I have continued to use this set as my primary cookware for all these years.

I have a set of West Bend cookware that I purchased upon graduation from high school in 1960. I have continued to use this set as my primary cookware for all these years. I particularly love the 6-quart dutch oven. The label on my pan is Kitchen Craft Stainless Steel, 18-8 Made in the USA. I believe the original contact came with a lifetime replacement warranty for handles and knobs. The knobs have been long gone for several years but the side handles on the dutch oven have finally started to break down after all these years of use in and out of the oven.
