QUESTION: ARE THEY NON STICK? OR I NEED TO PUT OIL TO FRY?
Use oil they are stainless steal. The bottoms carry heat well. So you never cook on high. I like them but I have had many eggs stick other things not so much with olive oil.
They don't have a non-stick coating. Oil or a cooking spray is needed when cooking.
We don't use any oil in our cooking and they work great! If something ever sticks or burns, cover the bottom of the pan with vinegar and let it soak overnight. All comes off without resorting to something like a Brillo pad. That will ruin it. No Pam spray either.
They are NOT non-stick and yes you may want to use some type of oil to fry. My husband cooked eggs in them and some of the eggs did stick but after letting the pan soak in soapy water for a little while I was able to remove the remains easily.
They still stick...it is still a nice set to have.
Warming them up SLOWLY with low heat closes the pores in the matal. Since there are three dissimilar metals in the bottom, SLOWLY heat them up with low heat. these metals expand at different rates.Pre heating slowly lets these metals adjust to each other. No, they have no non stick coating. It really isn't needed. NEVER clean them with a cleanser! All cleansers contain abrasives. Use Bar Keepers Friend. No abrasives Use 1/2 the heat you would normally use:they use heat that efficiently. I have cooked eggs with almost no sticking, and the little that does stick comes off easily. It's OK to use a little cooking spray or olive oil if you wish until you get use to cooking with them. I love my set and now use it exclusively.
A dab of olive oil will make them pretty nonstick. Simply heat them up and add a dab of oil and swirl or spread it around and your eggs will never stick! Plus, nonstick coatings can be toxic as they age. Stainless will never be toxic or rust on you. The cool thing is you can use a metal spoon in them because there is no nonstick coating to scratch. I love them because the copper bottom spreads the heat so evenly and effectively that I never need to turn the heat high enough to even cause a burning issue! Get them. You will not be disappointed.
put oil
No, stainless steel is, by definition, not non-stick. You will need lots of oil or butter.
Sticking is not a problem if the temperature is correct and a small amount of oil is used. Peanut oil is better when using higher temperatures. Otherwise olive or canola oil is fine. With many foods I want to develop a brown residue or frond then deglaze the pan to make a sauce or gravy. Stainless cookware is ideal for this. I use different cookware when I'm mostly concerned about non-stick properties. pans with ceramic non stick surface are far superior to potentially harmful Teflon coatings. I've been using metal tools and the ceramic remains undamaged. When frying, even the Ceramic lined pans require a small amount of oil or cooking spray. I've seasoned my pans by lightly coating the ceramic with canola oil and baking them in the oven for an hour just as I do with cast iron. After each use I rinse and wipe the pan with a paper towel. I avoid soap as it removes oils from the pores in the ceramic coating. This procedure gives the pan real non-stick qualities. Every so often I repeat the seasoning process. Before starting to cook I preheat the pan with a small amount of oil for several minutes at a medium temperature before adding the food. I keep a non-contact digital thermometer nearby. to verify pan temperature. As when using cast iron cookware, heat kills any bacteria on the pan, so don't be concerned about not using soap after every use.

QUESTION: ARE THESE DISHWASHER SAFE?
Yes
Yes it is safe to use dishwashrt. but after a month of use some colour change the bottom
It is safe, but is not recommended if you want to preserve the shiny outer surfaces. You could just clean them in hot water with a non-stratch scrubby or washing brush. Some folks use soap & water. Some recommend a non-scratch powder cleaner like "Barkeeper's Friend."
#T-fal_C836SC

QUESTION: NEVER USED SS BEFORE. CAN I USE PAM COOKING SPRAY ON THEM FOR HEALTHIER COOKING? OR OIL/BUTTER ONLY? THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUGGESTIONS.
You have to learn how to use a SS. Heat it up until when you drop a drop of water, it stays its form. That means the pores in the SS has closed up. That's when it's ready for whatever you want to put on it. I use butter and sometimes oil. I'm not too sure hydrogenated veg oil in an aerosol can is so healthy for you.
Oil is the best, small amounts but only add it after the pan gets warm. If you use Pam it will get sticky and leaves a coating that is hard if almost impossible to remove. Just follow the manufacturers instructions.
You can use either, but just don't overheat the pan or it will stain.
There are several oil pumps out there you can purchase that uses your own oil and makes it spray. I think Pampered Chef has one and I'm sure there are others. I agree that olive oil is the best and healthiest. I have seen where some people say that you can 'season' your SS, but I tried it and I don't see that it works any better. I have found like several of these others commenting here that heating the pan and then adding oil or butter is the trick to things not sticking. Even if you cook turkey burger which seems to have a mind of it's own with the juices sticking, adding a little water afterwards makes cleaning pretty much a snap.
You can. I used Pam tonight toasting the hamburger buns. Your main thing to remember is the pan must be seasoned after use for the first few times of use. Also these pans have copper, and stainless steel, so when the pans heat up they hold the heat unlike teflon. So medium heat and keep oiled for moisture to the pan when cooking lean meats. I use olive oil after each use to lightly wipe inside the pans.
Yes, you can use Pam. Spray the pan with Pam and then heat the pan. You can use baking soda to help clean out the pan if something sticks. Baking soda works great and is user friendly.
Forget Pam. Get one a pump sprayer like this: Misto Brushed Aluminum Olive Oil Sprayer And fill it yourself...olive oil, butter, etc. Not sure why reviews aren't higher, I've been using mine since March 29, 2011 (according to Amazon) and I've had no issues with it...
use olive oil
#Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: COUNTRY OF MANUFACTURED?
They are made in France .I made sure they were not from China
The individual pieces have information stamped on the bottoms but "Made in....." is not included. My box is long gone.
Nothing on the pieces to tell me where they were made. I recycled the box: I know I did research the item Macy's and Kohls both had it at higher retails so I ordered through Amazon.

I called the customer service line to find out. The interior of the pan (including the sides and cooking surface) is 18/10 stainless steel. The base of the pan is 18/0 - this is supposedly to help with cooking on induction surfaces, but I am not an expert in this area.
Alan, I apologize that I cannot answer this for you but i purchased my secon set in over 20 years as I lay in a hospital awaiting a grant for my new apt after a year in a coma. My original sets i used for over 20 years until thr teflon began peeling from high heat boiling pasta but love how evenly my food cooked and better still the easiest clean-up i had my original set almost 20 years and my new set is under my hospital bed ready to go and cook like a mad Italian MaMa? No I am not Italian but love to cook and loved how quickly these pots and pans cooked my meals with even heat and the easiest clean-up? I will never buy any oi bought two sets originally. Just in case my husband wanted to cook when I did using the same cookware...lol! it is well worth the money and such an easy clean-up? You will not regret this purchase? I promise? A Very happy repeat consumer! I hope this helps? May GOD BLESS YOU and your family? AMEN!
i honestly cannot answer that though i have my new set under my hospital bed ready for the day my grant is issued to move into my new move into my new apt and begin my new life!

QUESTION: ARE THE LIDS OVEN-SAFE?
yes they are ...my wife loves the set
Judging from the information that came with my set, these are NOT oven safe. There is a set that is, but my set IS NOT!
The glass lids are oven safe to 350 degrees
Have not used in oven as of yet. Go to t Fla and see what they say. Ok
Yes, I have used the kid in the oven on 400 degrees for 1 hour without issue.
#T-fal_C836SC

QUESTION: HOW STURDY ARE THE HANDLES? DO THEY HAVE ANY FLEX OR GIVE TO THEM? FROM THE PICTURES THEY LOOK IT MAY BE THE WEAK LINK IN AN OTHERWISE NICE SET...
The handles seem to be holding up nicely so far and they have no flex to them at all. We use this set on a daily basis and so far I've had no issues at all with them.
The handles are perfectly sturdy. No problem there. As I mentioned before the cleaning gets me annoyed at times
They are amazing handles. Solid and not a tube but actually SOLID stainless steel and the rivets are not hollow or aluminum (there are NO screws on these pans) nor are they small. Massive and solid with really good feel to them. I really can't say how pleased I am with these pans. I really miss the old days of solid lids but they are just not made anymore, especially in this price range
The handles do not flex and are comfortable to hold. I was surprised that, unless they sit on the burner for a long period of time, the handles do not seem to get too warm to pick up without a potholder. Maybe this is because, while very sturdy, they are hollow. I have been using mine for a month now and still am very pleased with the purchase. If you are bothered by a bit of discoloration in the bottom of the pan after using one, I've found that the Bar Keeper's powder cleanser cleans it up quickly and easily. Also, a cream copper cleaner works well on the copper on the bottom of the cookware. I grew up without a dishwasher so I have always washed my cookware by hand and I do think it helps preserve the longevity. I used my last set of cookware for 40+ years and now my daughter is using it. The copper on th e bottom certainly does help distribute the heat more easily than my former cookware. I also appreciate the measurements on the inside of the sauce pans. Long response to a brief question. Hope it helps you make a decision.
#Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: DO THE LIDS FROM THE POTS FIT ON TO THE FRYING PANS?
The lids will fit about one half inch below the top edge of the pans. I use screens that I purchased from the grocery store to reduce splattering.
Yes, The larger pans lid fits down inside the rim. The smaller fits on the edge
The lids from my pots fit perfectly. Maybe you got a set which was flawed from manufacturing?????
#T-fal_C836SC_Review

QUESTION: DOES IT WORK ON INDUCTION COOKTOPS
Yes. I currently have an induction stovetop and use only this stove for all of our cooking needs. So far I've had the TFAL set for about 4 months and this is the best cookware I have ever owned. Far better than my prior non-stick set and several other types of general cookware I've purchased. I still like my cast iron for some things like eggs. The pans get very hot very easily on the induction stove so I rarely use them with anything higher than medium heat. This simple set allows me to cook just about everything I normally cook on the stove top.
This set works beautifully on induction stoves!
It looks like you've gotten some good answers, based on experience. Induction works from magnetic fields, so if the cookware is a ferrous metal and is magnetic, it should work. Pans made of cast iron, stainless steel and layers of stainless steel are all good choices for an induction cooktop, while pans that are made only of glass, copper or aluminum conduct electricity too well to generate enough heat. Some pans are designed specifically for induction cooktops but if your current pans are made from cast iron or stainless steel they will probably work. One way to check, is to take a kitchen magnet and if it sticks strongly to the bottom of the cookware, then it will work just fine with induction cooktop. The other answers speak from actual use. My set is used on a regular electric glass top cook surface. Bottom line usually iron or stainless steel work best. The copper is not the best for using with induction.
Yes it does.
yes ,barely not the best surface for this product. Normally the stove/cook top will have specs that are provided when new purchase. Find on line if second hand or already in house when you purchased. Usually only wants stainless steel no sandwiches of copper for induction tops.

QUESTION: ARE THESE OVEN SAFE?
Dear Stephanie, If you read the "Product description" you will see that the pots and lids are "dish washer and oven safe up to 500°". I hope that also helps. John
Yes
They're all metal so I'd assume so. I recently put the frying pan in at 300 for an hour with no problems.
I'd say so, all metal although the covers are glass...
#T-fal_C836SC

QUESTION: DOES THE PATTERN ON THE BOTTOM HAVE "RIDGES" OR IS IT FLAT WITH THE REST OF THE SURFACE?
they have ridges
Hello Dave, It is almost flat, slight ridges in the patter on the bottom but enough to create an even heat distribution.
Hi Dave, I just looked at the bottom of the pan. The "star-shaped" pattern is embedded / sunken (about 0.4mm deep) in an otherwise flat base. No problems whatsoever with heat distribution.
It has ridges. They are what I call "flat ridges". Remember that this cookware does not require as much heat as the non-stick type of cookware. Stuff will stick if you don't use a little bit of oil to cook with.
The raised pattern on the bottom as shown in the picture is a source of heat distribution. This operates heat very much like cast iron in the sense that when it gets hot it contains the heat well after removed from a heat source (electric or gas) so you have to figure that extra time into cooking your dish. This is the old cast iron revved up and shinning. There are bands that expand and contract during cooking. They appear as slight ridges on the bottom and harder to detect on the inside of the pan. For this reason you do not want to wash in a dishwasher. I use Bartenders, found usually bottom shelf where you will find powdered Comet and AJax. Wet pan, sprinkle on bartenders and give it a scrub and food comes off rather quickly. When I don't want to use oil I use water. I hope you enjoy your purchase.& lt;/div>
It has a raised pattern on the bottom.

QUESTION: DO THESE POTS HAVE A NICE WEIGHT TO THEM, OR ARE THEY FLIMSY AND LIGHT?
They have a solid weight to them.
They have a nice weight.
I was concerned about that as well and I was pleasantly surprised by the weight and quality.
The weight is good, I was pleasantly surprised at how good they are built
Yes they are a good weight Beautifully made a good buy
#T-fal_C836SC_Review

QUESTION: IS SAFE TO USE IN THE OVEN
yes.
Personally, I would not recommend this cookware in the oven, no more than I'd recommend any kind of cookware in the oven, the exception being perhaps Corningware. This is designed for stove top and is quite efficient at that use, provided you keep temp. at medium and stay away from High, unless one is going to stand over the pan for a couple minutes and then back temp. off to Med. I certainly would not consider using this in the oven.
Re: T-fal C798SC64 set To date I have only used the larger one of the two frying pans, the 10.5 inch one, in the oven, without any problems. I was broiling pieces of chicken under high heat with more than satisfactory result. The pan handle, understandably got hot, so I had to use an oven glove to handle it. Otherwise, I encountered no issues with the pan's performance. Earlier I gave the T-fal C798SC64 set top rating, 5 stars. Today I confirm the same, 5 stars.
i have used it in the oven 10 times now and love it !!!!!!
Yes
I've used mine in the oven up to 350 degrees with no problems.
Yes. Download manual from Amazon product description section for confirmation of oven use, as well as cleaning directions. Wonderful cookware!
We don't know. My daughter-in-law hasn't been inclined to try.
yes it is
#T-fal_C836SC_Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: ARE THEY GOOD FOR GLASS TOP STOVE?
I hope so .... that is what I cook on. :) No problems so far.
If that is the same as a flat top stove, then yes. That is what I currently have. No coils to clean, etc. I just make sure the temperature is never higher than med-high as I read that cooking on a temperature higher than this with these pots and pans can cause damage.
#T-fal_C836SC

QUESTION: SOMEONE POINTED OUT THE COPPER AT THE BASE MAY PEEL OFF. DOES THAT (OR CAN THAT) REALLY HAPPEN?
Ive had mine for over a year now and I have not had a oroblem with the cooper peelibg off. I use my pots and pans everyday
Yes, it does happen after frequent use. Part of the issue is that these pans are very sensitive to heat and generally require less heat from the stove.
Ive had mine for over a year now and I have not had a oroblem with the cooper peelibg off. I use my pots and pans everyday
My copper bottom has not come off but is has changed colors. There were several other things that would have been a reason for me NOT to buy the T-Fal Stainless Steel set. First everything DOES stick to the bottom and I had to learn to cook with very low heat so that your food won't stick to the inside of the pots. The handles and tops get really hot when cooking. You would think the manufacturers would have put rubber or some type of protective coating on the handles and tops. Cleaning is an issue; requires scrubbing on the inside and outside with some type of SOS or abrasive pad if you want to keep the shiny stainless steel look. This is a product that I would NOT buy again. Hopefully this will help in making your decision.
#Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: MADE IN CHINA?
Yes.
i did not find anywhere...on the pans where they are made...but they do take a lot less heat to cook with..so that is a new learning experience...they are heavy and excellent quality..my wife loves them..she tells me to stick with our cast iron skillets and leave hers alone..lol..so yeah,we're glad we bought them..just use lower heat settings.
#T-fal_C836SC_Review

QUESTION: WILL THE BOTTO OF THEN PANS SCRATCH A GLASS TOP STOVE? HOW SMOOTH IS IT?
These are the best pots and pans I have ever owned. After purchasing these for my glass top stove, I loved them so much that I ordered more pots in other sizes. They work great on my glass top stove, cook evenly, don't stick, and clean beautifully. In fact, I threw away my other pots and pans that cost twice as much!. I would recommend these pots and pans highly! I read other answers! I totally disagree! I move the pots and pans back and forth over my cocktop and they don't scratch the cook top at all!
Well they haven't scratched mine and I've used them frequently. It is very smooth on the bottom
They are very smooth, I bought this as a gift for my mother who doesn't have glass top, but I have glass top @ home, I never drag any pan across the glass top.....better wait for a better answer, bc I'm not 100% sure. Sorry! :)
Do not slide across your glass top. I have had my t-fal for 4 months and have not noticed any scratches on my glass top stove but I am careful.
I imagine if you were making popcorn and shaking the pot it could scratch your glass top. It does have a groove pattern at the bottom. My problem is keeping its' shine.
#T-fal_C836SC_Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: HOW WELL DOES THE PANS WORK ON GLASS TOP STOVES?
They work well on my GE glass top induction range.
Great. I have a glass top stove. They work really well.
I have had no problem at all. Lids fit good too.
They will work just fine. They'll heat up just as fast as your cooktop will for glass and are cooled well when removed from the hotspots if needed.
#T-fal_C836SC

QUESTION: DO THE POT COVERS COVER THE SKILLETS?
Yes they do.
Yes they do.
yes they do cover the skillets
I just check with "she who knows all" rather than going downstairs to measure. She said that the small cover will fit the small skillet perfectly. The large cover will fit the large skillet but it fits a bit inside the skillet edges rather than on the upper rims. She's used it that way and said it works fine unless you're cooking something very large. We've also found that it pays to read the directions carefully and follow them regarding temperatures and cooking times since the stainless steel behaves differently from "no stick" type pots and pans. By cooking at a lower temperature, for a tad longer you get results that are excellent without messing the pots or pans up with stuck on foods. We find hat the stainless steel is very simple to wash clean (by hand; no d ishwasher) but as the normal dishwasher at our place, I always finish with an SOS scrub, especially on the skillets. One more little hint -- Before frying eggs, put them in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes. That will insure that you never get eggs stuck to the skillet. That works like magic.
No.
#Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: CAN THIS SET BE USED WITH AN INDUCTION COOKTOP?
Yes, these pots and pans can be used on an induction cooktop.
Yes we have an induction cook top and this set works well. We love it! Great quality.
Not sure, I don't think my daughters stove was induction, but they are flat on the bottom with a grooved pattern. I would look for more info on T fal site.
#T-fal_C836SC_Review

QUESTION: I SEARCHED FOR MADE IN USA COOKWARE AND THIS CAME UP BUT ONE OF THE ANSWERS SAYS MADE IN CHINA?
I Googled the question and came up with SEB as the corporate umbrella for T-Fal and other product lines. They are in France. According to my search, and the packaging that I saved, I found that the pots and pans are made in France and China. But there is a large distribution center in New Jersey. Either way, it is a beautiful set of cookware. I love mine.
As far as I can tell from the box and actual product T-Fal is produced in America (or at least the item I received is). The company may outsource some of their products to China. However, I believe if the product is assembled in the USA a company can claim production in the USA. The quality and day to day use has been excellent. I have no complaints about this pot set. I would definitely recommend this as a cheaper alternative to those $400 and up pot sets by other brands.
As far as I can tell, (a bit of research from web) it's made in USA. There are other brands and branches of the entire company, but I believe T-fal is in NJ. Either way, it's a great product and I'll never buy another brand for my basic cookware set. Good luck.
#T-fal_C836SC_Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: CAN IT BE USED IN THE OVEN?
Yep. It's stainless steel and copper.
Yes I believe up to 450° I've used the 10" sautée pan in the oven several times.
Under 350 F I believe
Yes! I was specifically looking for something that could go from stove top to oven and these are great. Of course, the handles will get hot in the oven.
#T-fal_C836SC

QUESTION: DISHWASHER SAFE?
I have washed (in the dishwasher) each piece in the set at least 40 times and it is all good. No problems what so ever.
Yes they are dishwasher safe. However if you plan on hanging them on a pot rack to display in your kitchen you may have to use the bartenders friend product or something similar to keep the nice shine on the copper.
yes
Yes, but they handwash so easily I usually don't. To this day, I still think they are the best ever!
I have placed mine in the dishwasher and they come out fine, but I normally will hand wash.
I wash mine all of the time in the dishwasher. Other than the copper blending in with the bottom, which is easily cleaned with the proper cleaner, I haven't had any trouble with the dishwasher.
Absolutely! According to T-Fal and Consumer Reports, the Ultimate Stainless Steel Copper-Bottom cookware is dishwasher-safe. In my opinion it's best to wash by hand, but the dishwasher does a fine job as well. Hope this helped you.
YES, they are dishwasher safe!!! I really love these pots. My only complaint is the handles get a little hot sometimes.
#Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: DISWAHSER SAFE?
Yes - but they tend to discolor a bit. They wash so easily, usually just soak clean, I do them by hand.
Yes they are dishwasher safe.
Absolutely but I still wash all cookware by hand most of the time.
the book that comes with it says not to put in the dishwasher but my boyfriend does and says it hasnt hurt them
#T-fal_C836SC_Review

QUESTION: DO THE HANDLES ON THE POTS AND PANS GET HOT?
Only if the flame goes past the bottom of the pot or come out of the oven... else no...
No, the handles don't get hot.
No, the handles have not gotten hot when I use them
They get warm but not real hot.
Since they are metal they do conduct some heat. I don't think it's any more than the handles on my Calphalon pans. They certainly do not get as hot as the pan itself. I always use pot holders when handling any cookware that I'm using, so not a concern for me.
Not really, the handles are pretty long and the heat tends to stay in the bottom of the pan. I've only noticed that the handles in the glass covers do get hot, but that's after I've been boiling something for a little while. In those cases a little kitchen towel to uncover the pot will do the trick. You will find that you will seldom have to use anything higher than medium heat because these pans are so effective in distributing the heat into the bottom of the pan.
I use these on an electric stove and the handles do not get hot. I just love these pans!
#T-fal_C836SC_Ultimate_Stainless_Steel

QUESTION: WHAT GUAGE OF STEEL?
I am unsure Karen
Unknown, these units are apparently backordered from Delta until late March of 2014.
1mm for the side of pan and 1cm for the base of the pan. 1mm for the side of pan and 1cm for the base of the pan. Per the T-fal company, It's around 1mm for the side of pan and 1cm for the base of the pan.
