QUESTION: CAN THESE BE USED ON A GLASS TOP STOVE?
Hi Elvano: if you haven't bought the T-Fal pot set yet, i highly do not recommend it. The pots kept slipping and slidding when I tried them out. I first tried the stock pot cooking a pot of soup. To my surprise it kept slidding. I had to hold onto the pot. I tested the other pots and the results were the same. I had to return the set, it was too dangerous. I bought a "cuisinant" pot set. I didn't know they made pots. I like it s lot. The pots do not slip, the handles say cool, the sizes and shape of the pots is better then I expected. I bought both sets at Kohls. Price was comparable a really great deal if you have coupons. To answer your question about using the pot on a glass stove. I don't see why not since pots are made to be used for cooking. I only buy hard anodized. I finally came to realize that it's better to spend more and buy hard anodized pots that will last much longer then buying cheaper pots that have to be replaced more often. I do a lot of cooking and baking so I hope my answer and advice is helpful to you. Regards , ginger
Hi Elvano again: sorry I forgot to mention that the Cuisinant pots do not slip or slid! I also finally come to realize that it's better to pay more for hard anodized pots then buying cheap pots that need to be replaced often. I hope my answer to your question and my advice was helpful to you. Good luck
I do a somewhat limited amount of cooking but personally have had no problem with these on my glass ceramic top stove. I have had these for over a year now and have been very happy with the set thus far.
We have an electric glass stove top made by GE. The set worked but did not heat evenly.

QUESTION: ARE THESE PANS PFOA FREE?
yes
Did some research. Here is info from T-Fal website: "The new health and environment emphasis is designed to remind consumers that all T-fal cookware, made in France, is and will continue to be recyclable, PFOA, lead, and cadmium free, regardless of price point. This new labeling will be seen in stores beginning June 2009."
what is pfoa free, these are the best pans i every owned, and nothing ever sticks.
I'm sorry I don't know
#T-fal_D913SC

QUESTION: CAN THEY BE PUT IN THE OVEN
I haven't tried using them in the oven. Maybe you could read the directions that came with the pans. I know they cannot go into the dishwasher and you should not keep a real high temperature on the pan (flame) , it will blacken the inside of the pan. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
This is directly from their website. 5 - Is T-fal non-stick cookware oven proof? Yes, up to 350 degrees F. only for a maximum of one hour. The pan can only be heated at high temperatures on a hob. When placed in the oven the oven heat should be at a maximum of 350 degrees F° even for a pan with Thermo-Spot as it is the bakelite handles that cannot withstand higher temperatures. T-fal cookware with plastic handles or knobs are not oven proof. Please check the instruction guide that came with the cookware to identify which pieces are in fact oven safe. If you still have any queries, please contact us for clarification. T-fal cookware should never be used in a microwave or convection oven.
Hi There: I'm sorry for taking so long to reply, i was thinking the pots were the cuisinart brand i just bought. I returned this pot set because it kept slipping and sliding on the stove. I tried every piece and the results were the same making it very dangerous to cook with. So sorry I can't answer rhis question for you. I am really happy with the cuisinart brand however and the handles stay cool. Good luck Cookie lady

QUESTION: SINCE IT SAYS THERE IS A HOLE IN THE LIDS FOR VENTING, CAN YOU STILL BOIL RICE WHICH NEEDS A TIGHT FITTING LID?
I regularly cook rice in my T-Fal pan. I use a lower temperature than in a tight-covered pan. I use regular, not fast cooking rice, bring it to a boil, cover, lower the heat to 3 (out of 10) and cook for 20 minutes.
Absolutely you can. I have made rice in my pot. The rice came perfect!!!
Excuse me, but this t-fal was for a give

QUESTION: HOW PRONE ARE THESE PANS TO WARPING? I NOTICED ANOTHER TFAL SET MENTIONS ANTI-WARP TENDANCIES BUT THIS SET DOES NOT. THANK YOU FOR RESPONDING TO MY QUESTION.
The Ultimate Hard Anodized selections of Tfal pans are the ones that make the anti warping claims. However the T-Fal Signature style pans do not include that claim, at least not on the website I checked. To date this set of pans has not warped nor shown signs of warping. Please keep in mind they are being used by a novice, he isn't doing any high heat searing on a regular basis or anything fancy....
Have had my set a couple of months. As of now, very pleased with construction and cooking of pots. Haven't noticed any warping. They are very sturdy pots. Would be surprised at any warping.
Paolo very good question indeed. First thing i noticed when receiving my set of T Fal Pans is that its very sturdy hard metal not going to warp bend or break very good strong quality i highly advise you to buy these sets i am very pleased with my purchase and I'm sure you will be too.
Well done, great wrapping. No issues found.
#T-fal_D913SC_Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DOES THIS SET HAVE RIVETED SILICONE HANDLES?
I know they are riveted but not sure if silicone handles but I do know the handles don"t get hot
The handles are made from a decent quality silicone. Provide excellent grip and do not get hot. It is riveted although it does not go all the way through to the inside.
No, just plastic handles
Yes, they do and I find them very comfortable to hold onto.
#T-fal_D913SC

QUESTION: CAN THESE BE USED ON GLASS STOVETOPS?
Yes they can. These are awesome & heat evenly. I would recommend them.
These aren't very nice. Mine are rusted and I have only had them about 6the weeks! They are hand dried immediatly after they are washed.
Yes you can. I bought this set for my son and he has a glass stovetop. But he said that after only a few weeks they started looking dull and faded :(
I don't have any troubles with mine. I have had them for 2 months. I have taken care of them, per manufacturers instructions and haven't had a problem yet. I would highly recommend them. If you put these in a dish washer then every 10 times they recommend you season the pans again. It only takes 2 minutes to do and is not a problem for me.
yes, them daily
Yes, I have a glass top stove and they work quite well. The heat very evenly, and as long as you take care of them they wear nicely.
I cannot answer that, we don't have a glass top stove. If you follow the manufacturers directions, it shouldn't matter whether you use a glass top stove or not.
#Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DOES THIS SET HAVE THE BUILT IN STRAINERS ON THE LIDS?
That's a great question. I wondered the same also. No, this set did not have the built in strainers on the lids.
They have vents, but no strainers.
There is no built in strainer in this set of tops. There are steam air holes in the tops.
It has the small whole for the steam to pass.
No it does not. Great pans though! Love them!
no
#T-fal_D913SC_Review

QUESTION: ARE THE NON-STICK SURFACES TEFLON? I HEARD THAT TEFLON PANS WON'T BE SOLD IN THE US AFTER 2014 BECAUSE COOKING WITH THEM IS UNHEALTHY.
DO NOT TRUST THE FIRST ANSWER. The exterior of the cookware is hard anodized. The interior is Teflon. The plastic utensils are a giveaway. Dangerous to use around pets (birds especially).
i heard teflon causes cancer and hence the ban in US , as long as the pot interior is coated with teflon the outside doesnt really matter, i would go against any of teflon coated materials until a safe alternative is found , until then i think i will be using stainless steel or the good old aluminium to cook my food ( i wouldnt really mind adding the extra oil , a couple of pounds vs cancer ) i could really live with it .
Hard Anodize is a process of securing a metal coating through annealing to the pan itself. It is not Teflon which is plastic coating that is applied to the pan/pot which over time will wear off . Metal items should be avoided with Teflon coatings.

QUESTION: IS THIS DISHWASHER SAFE?
I am afraid to try it. It's so nice I don't want to take a chance. Happy Cooking
I am afraid to try it. It's so nice I don't want to take a chance. Happy Cooking
It is but the outside of the pans discolors. The set looked old in less than a month.
Read the pamphlet that comes with the pans, they should not be put in the dishwasher.
#T-fal_D913SC

QUESTION: ARE THEY DISHWASHER SAFE? I SEE THE ANSWER NOW...
They are but I still wouldn't recommend them I don't think they are real t fal
I have not put them in the dishwasher; hand washing them only. I've never put my pots and pans in the dishwasher as I heard no matter what kind they are they should be handwashed.
Yes, they are dishwasher safe, but I also don't put my pots and pans in the dishwasher. First of all, it is harder on the finish than hand washing, but mainly I don't because it takes up too much room.
Glad you found your answer because I really did not pay much attention to that detail because I was putting the set in a rental unit that does not have a dishwasher. I will say that I was so pleased with the set that I recommended them to a friend of mine and will probably wind up with a set for myself at some point in time. I do not use a dishwasher so again, that is a detail that would not matter much to me. I was really impressed with the set.
#Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: MAY THIS SET BE USED ON A GAS STOVE?
Absolutely. We use ours all the time on a gas range. Just isn't supposed to be washed in a dishwasher.
Yes it can.
I assume it can. In truth, we bought it due to the special. We have not used it because our current set still works great.
#T-fal_D913SC_Review

QUESTION: IS THIS SET DISHWASHER-SAFE?
Manual says not to dishwash this set
Yes it is. Also, do not use any metal utensils onthe pans bc they will destroy the lining on the pans. Just fyi in case you didn't know that.
Technically yes, but for best results I'd hand-wash.
Based on reviews I have always hand washed mine. I have never had a problem with anything sticking so washing is really easy.
Yes
It said dishwasher safe but they said it was better to hand wash. I have never put mine in the dishwasher. It cleans wonderfully with a soapy sponge. Make sure your sponge is clean.
Yes. It is dishwasher safe. But metal utensils, especially ones which are advertised as nonstick would be better to wash with hand since they are prone to lose the teflon coating sooner with dishwasher wash. Its not too difficult to wash this by hand since things don't stick to it.
#T-fal_D913SC_Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: CAN YOU USE METAL UTENSILS?
No you can't use Metal Utensils you'd scrape the Teflon coating off. I use all plastic.
I don't, I use plastic. Maybe check your instructions on T-Fal
No you can not use metal utensils, just wood or plastic
#T-fal_D913SC

QUESTION: IS THIS DISHWASHER SAFE?
Yes it is but be advised the outside is an anodized look and is pretty, if you use the dishwasher you will ruin the look of the outside with the dishwasher residue. This is one of the easiest cookwares to clean that I have come across, you can almost wipe everything area with a damp paper towel. If you want to sanitize it just boil some water in the pot for a couple of mins.
Yes Debbie. I have two fry pans that I use almost every day. I have put them through the dishwasher at least 300 times and they still look like new.
Yes . Ive had them for a year now and holding up well to dishwasher use and kids.. Best pans I ever had hope this helps
according to the manufacture it is dishwasher safe. I however wash mine by hand as an extra precaution.
#Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DIMENSIONS OF DUTCH OVEN?
The Dutch Oven pan is 9 1/2" in diameter and 4 1/2" deep. Not the largest dutch oven I owned but a good size.
I don't know the dimensions of the dutch oven because it was sent as a gift.
#T-fal_D913SC_Review

QUESTION: CAN THIS COOKWARE BE USED ON INDUCTION COOKTOPS?
do not buy this set if you have an induction stove. just received today and it states its not for induction stoves. i read a previous answer that said it was and learned the hard way.
It should be able to. The only thing to keep in mind, is due to the way these are built, they will heat up rather quickly. There is no need to put your stove on high to bring water to a boil. (for example). Just fill with the hottest tap water you have, then use only medium to medium-high heat. At most. Otherwise you risk ruining the bottom of the pots (I read this on my users manual). Also, pick up and move pots around, never drag across the stove surface. This will also tear up the bottom. I hope this helps. :)
#T-fal_D913SC_Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: ARE THE LIDS GLASS
Yes.
Yes they are.. Very nice
Yes they are glass. Not every pan comes with its own lid tho. A couple of the lids pull double duty.
yes good quality
Yes, they are glass.
#T-fal_D913SC

QUESTION: ARE THESE DURABLE? FOR HEAVY DUTY USE
I use them for everyday cooking. I think the craftsmanship, construction and feel of these pots/pans would be ideal for any type of cooking.....how 'heavy' are we talking ;)
Yes, the pots r heavy duty. i have a big family and cook regularly. I love these pots.
Hello Rochelle. Yes this is a great brand. We had bought a house and a set was left in the kitchen. We started using them. My mother and mother in law liked them so much, they each bought a set. Also, in our house we cook seven days a week. So I would definitely recommend them for heavy duty use. Have a nice day. Maidagan
Yes, they are heavy duty and heats up fast. I love them.
#Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHERE IS IT MANUFACTURED
France
Sorry i can't answer your question because i returned the post set. They were too dangerous to use because the pots kept slipping and sliding on the stove. Cookie lady
#T-fal_D913SC_Review

QUESTION: HOW ARE THESE SAUCE PANS FOR STEAMING FRESH VEGETABLES...WITH THE WHOLE IN THE LID, I'M WONDERING?
The hole is very, very small. A bit larger than the head of a pin. So, the steam released did not affect the steaming process for the broccoli we had the other night. Hope you found this helpful.
I haven't steamed any vegetables yet but when I've boiled things in the pots, the steam comes out nicely through the hole; although depending on the liquid level in the pot, the water can still spill out over the sides some (with the top on).
I love these pots and pans! When I cook or steam my food my food comes out perfect every time!!

QUESTION: HELLO, I (IN INDIA) WOULD LIKE TO BUY THE PRODUCT T-FAL D913SC64. WHAT DO I DO. PL REPLY IMMEDIATELY.
Shobhana...sorry to say, But we cannot sale this product for India.
We only ship within the USA
#T-fal_D913SC

QUESTION: WHAT'S THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND THE ULTIMATE HARD ANODIZED SET?
I'm not really sure, that's why I bought the cheapest set and I am very happy with it.
It appears to me that the exterior surface of the pots and pans in this set is very thin and easily scrapes off in use. It doesn't take long for the shiny aluminum surface to show through on the pot/pan bottoms. I'm not very particular about the appearance of these working utensils, so I don't care that they look a bit scratched in a short time. That bothers me not at all. If you want a good looking set of cookware fo impress company with, don't get these.
#Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: HOW LONG ARE THE HANDLES ON THIS SET D913SC
about 6 inches.
They are the standard size. I will have to check with my son because I gave him and his wife this for Christmas
#T-fal_D913SC_Review

QUESTION: ARE THESE DISHWASHER SAFE? CAN YOU USE METAL UTENSILS OR STICK TO WOOD/BAMBOO AND SILICONE UTENSILS?
neither a dishwasher safe nor metal utensils .. sorry
In my experience, these are tough, but I use silicone or wood utencils usually - if metal, then careful not to scratch. The outside finish will definitely wear off and the handles lighten if washed in the dishwasher. These will last much longer if hand washed and they're so easy to clean that there's really no reason not to wash by hand.
Always best to stick with plastic or wood utensils. The hard anodized signature series are dish washer safe.
#T-fal_D913SC_Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DO THE LIDS TO THE POTS FIT ON THE PANS?
yes the lids do fit.. I love this set!
They are definitely interchangeable. Every piece has a lid that fits it.
#T-fal_D913SC

QUESTION: ARE THEY SAFE FOR FLAT TOP STOVES?
yes
I returned this pot set shortly after i purchased it because they kept slipping and slidding on the stove making them dangerous to use. You shouldn't have a problem using them on a flat stove. It't actually better then cooking on a stove with grates. I have a gas stove. I replaced the t-fal for a cuisinaut brand. I like it a lot. Good luck cooking.
Hi Kylie, I wish I could answer but I have only used it a gas range. I have noticed that they even slide easily on my burner cover. Sorry I can't add more.
Please read my comment below the second one.
#Signature_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: HI... CAN I USE METAL UTENSILS IN THIS COOKWARE?
Would not advise it.
No, as it's Tfal, it is not safe and healthy to use metal utensils!!
#T-fal_D913SC_Review

QUESTION: ARE THE HANDLES RIVETED ON OR SCREWED ON TO THE POTS/PANS?
the handles are rivited but very sturdy.
Hi Chelsea, There are no screws, all handles have two rivets, I liked the set I purchased so much I purchased another for a friend! Bill
Yes the handles are riveted!
They are riveted. I really love these pans. They live up to their manufacturer's name. I have owned T-FAL for close to 30 years. I have had these pans for a few months, and I love the quality and performance! S. LEE
they are riveted. well pleased with the set so far they are holding up fine.

QUESTION: WHERE DID IT MAKE FROM? MADE IN CHINA OR WHERE ELSE?
This set of cookware was made in France.
China
Trademark out of france
#T-fal_D913SC

QUESTION: IS IT REALLY SAFE FOR ME TO PUT THESES POTS IN THE OVEN? JUST GOT THIS 12 PIECE SET AND I WANT TO TRY THEM OUT.
No. The handles are a hard plastic.
I can't answer that for sure; I haven't used them in the oven yet. Judging from how the handles seem not to collect heat on the stovetop, I would say if you mind the temps you use (stay within the recommended allowances), they should be fine.
I have no idea about putting them in the oven! Haven't tried it! Sorry!!!! Other than that my Mother loves them!
