QUESTION: I SEE THAT THEY SELL THE 10 IN PAN SEPARATELY ALONG WITH A LID. DOES ONE OF THE POT LIDS FROM THE SET FIT THE 10 IN PAN?
The set, came with 3 sauce pans with lids, 2 fry pans and a Dutch oven with a lid. The largest lid fits the Dutch oven but does NOT fit the larger fry pan. Because of the flare of the sides of the fry pan, the inside diameter is 10-1/4" while the straight-sided Dutch oven inside diameter is 9-1/2". I hope this helps you.
No. One of the lids fits the smaller fry pan, but there is no lid that fits the 10 inch pan.
Yes, the large lid that comes with the set is a 10"

QUESTION: IS THESE POTS AND PANS FOR INDUCTION COOKTOPS? IN OTHER WORDS ARE THEY MAGNETIC?
I do not think they are magnetic. I use them on my glass cooktop. However, I do like them.
Hmmm...I am not really sure to be honest. I wish I had a better answer for you. Sorry!
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIAMETER FOR EACH OF THE COVERED SAUCE PAN? I TRY TO FIND OUT IF MY STEAMER CAN FIT ON TOP OF THEM.
big pot - 7 3/4 ID; 8 1/2 + 5/32 OD inches
There are three covered sauce pans. Inside measurement ID is (not exact but at least) Large 7 3/4" Medium 7 1/8" and Small 5 1/2" I did not measure the large covered pot or the two fry pans.
The toll free number for T-fal is 800-395-8325 the sauce pans are listed at 5.6 quart, 3.2 quart and 1.1 quart and ask for measurements on the Ultimate pans.
These were a gift for my daughter so I don't have them to measure.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WE'VE HAD PROBLEMS WITH OTHER T-FAL COOKWARE HANDLES COMING LOOSE. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS SET HAS THAT PROBLEM?
I have had my set for right around 6 months. No handles loose yet!
These handles are riveted on. I've had no issues with them coming loose.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: IS IT METAL UTENSIL SAFE?
No...I've used a wire whisk and it has scratched up the bottom. So better off using wooden/rubber utensils.
It says it is, but rule of thumb for me is not to test that theory. All nonstick will scratch which can lead to leaking coating. I use silicone or softer plastic utensils.
I don't use metal utensils on them. The price of the pans is because of the T-fal, so I don't want to test whether it is metal utensil safe. There are some really sturdy plastic and silicon utensils that you can buy to use on them.
I never use them in mine.
No...it is not.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE TOTAL WEIGHT OF THIS ITEM?
I'm sorry I do not remember.
I am not sure what the total weight of this item is but if you pull the item up and scroll down to the specifications it will tell you. I do know it is the best cookware I have ever used.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: I SEE THAT SOMEONE SAID THAT THE LIDS DON'T EXACTLY FIT THE FRY/SAUTE PANS. IS THIS TRUE?
There are no lids for the larger frying pans, just what is shown in the picture.
just as it is pictured, the saucepans and dutch oven have lids that fit. The one saucepan lid fits the small skillet but no lid for the larger one
Mine fit perfectly
A cover from one of the sauce pans fits the small fry pan but there is no cover for the large fry pan.
My set..the lids fit perfectly.
I have had no problems with the way the lids fit any of the pans. I absolutely love these pans.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THE INSIDE OF THE SKILLET SMOOTH OR INDENTED?
Smooth
patterned but very smooth,oil or butter only needed for the flavor and too expedite the browning or caramelizing of the food
The insides of the skillet are smooth and it cleans up very easily.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: ARE THEY HEAVY?
Compared to what? They are very well made. I have had mine for almost two months. They are used daily. I think they are great! Even heating. True non-stick. They wash up easy and beautifully. I highly recommend them.
I would say medium. I have bought lighter weight ones and bought heavier ones in the past. Walmart sells these. They have an open stock. Look for the red circle in the center and see what you think before making purchase. Sorry I could not be more helpful.
No.. I don't find them heavy or uncomfortable to move from stove to counter top.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THE HANDLE A HARD PLASTIC FEEL OR A RUBBERY SILICONE FEEL?
They are rubber. Makes pans so easy to handle. A perfect fit for my hands.
Very hard rubber fell.
rubbery silicone feel
It's soft and rubbery , very nice
Rubbery silicone feel
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: DOES SAUTE PAN HAVE A LID; OTHERWISE THE NUMBER OF PIECES ARE OFF. PICTURE OF SET LOOKS LIKE SAUTE PAN HAS LID BUT IT ISN'T LISTED.
Yes they all have lids and they fit perfectly... love T Fal..
No it does not have its own personal lid but the lid off one of the other pots will fit it
No
yes, each saute pan has a lid. there are 17 pieces in this set
I purchased the 10 pc. and no did not have the lid.
I actually got the 12 piece. With that purchase, the saute pan and the dutch oven share the same lid.
The sauté pans do not have lids.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: ARE THESE PANS OK ON A GLASS STOVE TOP?
Yes. I also have a glass top stove. They are great for that!
Yes they are. I have a glass stove top and they work wonderfully. Best purchase I could have made.
Yes. I cook on a glasstop and it is just fine.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: HOW IS THE BALANCE OF THE SAUCE POTS? DO THEY TIP EASY IF EMPTY?
They have excellent balance probably because the bottoms are not as rounded as some others.
No problems noted with tipping. Items cook up quite nicely with this set.
The 2-quart and 3-quart saucepans weigh ~1 lb 4 oz and 1 lb 8 oz without lids. They are sturdy and well balanced. Since I always make a habit of keeping the handles turned toward the cooktop, I've never had a problem with them tipping over. I really like this set. They clean up beautifully whether you put them in the dishwasher or not.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WILL THIS WORK ON ELECTRIC COIL COOKTOP?
Yes, that is what I have and it works very well.
I think so , I like this product I don't think that will be a problem with any kind of heat that you use to cook those pots are very good quality ! I love them !
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: IN THE 12 PC SET, MY SAUTÉ PANS HAVE THE "HONEYCOMB-STYLE" TEXTURE ON THE BOTTOM WITH THE THERMO-SPOT. THE POTS ARE JUST COMPLETELY SMOOTH. EXPECTED?
These are the best pots and pans I think that you can ever get they are fantastic.
Yes what a great buy.
Yes
The pots are great. Get them you won't be disappointed.
I had no prior experience with this brand, so did not really know what to expect, but my pots are smooth without the Thermo-spot, but work just fine.
The pots do not have the (honeycomb-style,Thermo spot) on the bottom.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS IT SAFE TO EAT FROM THESE?
Yes, very.
Yes
I've been using these for over a year now and have yet to grow a second pecker
Yep...wife has used the pans for years...The process was invented in France where they know i little about cooking
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: ARE THESE DISHWASHER SAFE?
Yes.
Yes, but they are so easy to clean they don't need to be put in the dishwasher. Also there is a chance they could get scratched in the dishwasher. I think they will last a lot longer with hand washing. And they are so easy to dry with a towel or paper towel. One other thing about these pot & pans, they tend to be slippery on the bottom so you have to be careful with them on the stove top. After you use them and they get a little scuffed on the bottom it's not so bad. But use caution when they are still new. I love my set.
Yes.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: CAN THESE BE USED ON AN INDUCTIONB SYOVE TOP?
the description says no.
My previous answer is incorrect. The copper wire coil is embedded under the glass cooking surface. Any cookware with magnetic bottom should work but need to check inefficiency.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: DOES GREASE STICK TO THE BOTTOM OR THE EXTERIOR OF THE POTS
I guess it depends on which ingredients you're using to cook. I just use vegetable oil, oleo or butter. The only food I cook where there might be grease accumulated is when I fry pork chops. There may be some grease left over but it comes off immediately when I wash the pan with hot water and soap. Do not scour or use harsh cleaning chemicals like scouring pads (SOS) you will ruin the exterior of the pan.
Hi Angela. No it does not . Actually very little oil is needed when cooking in these pans. Denise
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHAT IS MAXIMUM HIGH OVEN TEMP FOR DUTCH OVEN?
As it says in the instructions: "Oven safe to 350-degree F"
I believe they are rated up to 375° But I've done up to 450° without any issues.
It's so new I haven't used it as of yet.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: DO THEY WORK WELL ON GLASS TOP ELECTRIC STOVE
Definitely!!! That's exactly what I have at home..a glass to electric stove. I have been using t-fal kitchen pots for over 15 yrs and I definitely trust them. Believe me they're just a great product.
Yes - that's what I have, but I'm sure they'd work on just about anything. The bottom is very sturdy.
Yes, they do... I have one.
yes, we have a glass top electric stove and they work very well!!
i can't give you an honest answer, because i've never seen them in action on glass top electric stove--sorry
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WILL THESE PANS WORK ON AN INDUCTION STOVE?
The sixth bullet reads not.
After reading the info for induction on this site:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Induction_stove I tried the magnet test and it did not stick so I would guess not.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: DO THE LIDS FIT ON THE FRY PANS?
yes, one of the lids fits on the small fry pan, but not for the bigger pan.
The lids that came with our set fit the pans good.
YES, EXCELLENT FIT
pot lid fits small fry pan but my largest pot lid does not fit large fry pan but if I had the largest pot I'm sure it would.
The lid from the largest saucepan fits the small fry pan perfectly. You'd think the lid from the dutch oven would fit the large fry pan but unfortunately it does not.
One lid fits on the SMALL frying pan. There is no lid for the LARGER one.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THIS PRODUCT DISHWASHER SAFE?
Absolutely.
The description says it is but we do not wash ours in a dishwasher - we are in an RV. Excellent set!
I do not put it in the dishwasher. I am concerned it would affect the nonstick finish!
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: CAN THIS PRODUCT BE USED ON CERAMIC TOP STOVES?
Yes
I use them on a ceramic top stove and have had no problems.
Yes, that is the kind of stove that I have. I am very satisified with my pot and pan set. It is durable, easy to clean, nothing sticks, you won't be dissapointed.
I think my research showed that these are not recommended for those type of stoves, I could be wrong though. I have a gas stove and I purchased these for that reason and I remember coming across other pans that were good for ceramic stove but I decided not to purchase those.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS IT MADE IN FRANCE?
No. Corporate office in France.
No
have no idea. when they arrived wife took over, empty the box, wash all of them , disposed of the box and informed my i am not allowed to use them. says i cook too hot heat.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: IN THE 17 PC SET ARE THE LIDS FOR THE POTS INTERCHANGABLE TO BE USED ON THE FRY PANS?
I don't believe so. I actually have never tried it.
yes and no - the little fry pan has a lid that fits, but the big fry pan is a little too big for the large lid to fit.
No....unfortunately. ..
Not sure. I bought a smaller set, but the lids were interchangeable. And I love them!
Yes lids are interchangable for some of the fry pans
Hi: There is one that fits the middle fry pan. . . . it is the one used on the middle pan. Just found this out. . . .
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: STILL HAPPY AFTER ONE YEAR?
Yes
These pots and pans are very easy to cook with and very easy to clean. So far, nothing stick to them. Wife love's em. A very, very good set! Would buy them again.
I have not had the item a year yet.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: CAN THESE BE USED ON INDUCTION COOKTOPS
I don't have that type of cooktop so I would say it would be best to check with the store or call tfal direct.
no idea. i am not allowed to use them. sorry
I read the pamphlet that came with my set. It says compatible with gas,spiral or solid electric, ceramic(radiant) and halogen range tops . Then it says all stainless steel t-fal is suitable for all range tops including induction. So I would say no they can't be used on induction. The T-fal help line is 1_800-395-8325. They maybe able to answer for sure.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: GOOD FOR GLASS TOP?
Yes Trish,I have a glass top,they work wonderful for me,no blackened bottoms.
Don't know for sure, I use my on a gas stove. However, I love my set. Cooks evenly, doesn't take as much heat and clean up is a breeze.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: CAN YOU USE THESE ON PROPANE STOVES?
I only have propane not natural gas and have never had a problem with them. Absolutely love these pans!
yes
I do not know but wnder what the difference would be????
I use them on a natural gas stove, so there should not be a problem using them on a propane stove. The pans are GREAT!
Logically, I cannot see why Propane would be an different than city gas. In fact when I got my set I was living in a trailer after our house had burned down. It used propane for heating/cooking, and the pans worked fine.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DO THESE POTS HAVE POUR SPOUTS AND LIDS WITH DRAINAGE HOLES LIKE THE EMERILWARE IT IS REPLACING?
There are no pour spouts or drainage holes.
The pots have lids, but no pour spouts.
No. They don't
No. But they still rock!!!
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: DO THESE PANS NOT WARP
No, I am very hard on my pots and pans, no warping, I've had mine about a year now. Hope this helps.
No they do not warp. Still as flat as the first time I used them. One of the reasons I love this set so much.
I guess that would depend on how they are used. We use our pans nearly everyday, and there has not been any warping. The set of pans these replaced never warped either in the 10 + years we had them.
NOT THAT I CAN TELL
I sorry I'm not sure I've only had them for a short time so far they are great still.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DOES IT HAVE STEAM HOLES?
Yes, each lid has a stream hole.
Yes the lids do.
Yes it does
Yes, leads have steam holes !
Yes the glass lids have steam holes
yes it dos
Yes all the lids have a small steam hole.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: IS THE ULTIMATE HARD ANODIZED NONSTICK BETTER THAN THE PROFESSIONAL SET?
I have not used the professional set so I cannot say that this one is better. I only know that with this set nothing sticks, nothing burns and it is a breeze to clean up. Just basically swish with soap and water and it will wipe clean. I'm seriously thinking of purchasing this set for my daughter, daughters-in-law, and granddaughters. I find it that good!
I can't compare it to the professional cause I have never used it but I have had this set for almost a year and I love it.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHERE MADE
USA
I believe the thermo spot fry pans were made in France, and the other pans in China.
Don't know where made. not on the pots & pans and I have discarded the box. amazon should be able to tell where manufactured.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET JUST THE LID FOR THE LARGE FRYING PAN?
I don't think you can, I dropped the lid for the small saucepan shortly after we purchased our set and the lid shattered. I tried to order a new one from the company and they said they don't sell replacement parts, so I think they don't make lids for any of the pans except what's included with the set.
I just received my set, E918SE, today. I also got the C11933 Signature 4.2 qt Jumbo Cooker with cover ($18.85). That cover fits the Ultimate 10" fry pan in the E918SE set.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WILL IT WORK WITH INDUCTION COOKTOP?
Yes, I have Frigidaire induction stoves with glass top. They work fine.
Yes . The red center don't get bright ref like on a conventional stove. It didn't matter to me. They still works great.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: WILL THIS COOKWARE WORK WITH INDUCTION SYSTEMS?
I've never cooked with an induction cooktop and honestly, don't know a lot about them. I did read that if a magnet sticks to the bottom of the pan, it will work with an induction cooktop so I tried that with my pans, and the magnet did not stick. I don't know if that helps at all. Sorry, you may need to contact T-Fal and run that question by them.
I use an electric stove. Induction system requires copper wire coil placed under cooking pot. These pans have no copper coil so you need to check further.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DOES THIS T-FAL SET COME WITH A DOUBLE BROILER?
No because broiler is in 14 pieces pack and I bought 12 pieces so broiler is not included in it
No it does not. Great set !!!
No. But it has just about everything else.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: IS THE BOTTOM OF THE PANS MAGNETIC. WE HAVE A NUWAVE AND THAT NEEDS TO HAVE MAGENTIC BOTTOMS. CAN ANYONE TEST THE BOTTOM BY PUTTING A MAGNET ON IT
No they are not, they are not for induction cooktops.
No they are not, they are not for induction cooktops.
Um not sure what you are asking for since its metal and a magnet would stick to it anyway......so sure its magnetic lol Edit....well looked up a nuwave...ya these are not for that....but now i know about induction cooking lol!
No, the bottom is not magnetic. I tried and it is not.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHAT METAL ARE THESE MADE OF? ARE THEY ALUMINUM? STEEL?
They are a very hard anodized aluminum. They do not scratch easily and hold up very well in the dishwasher.
I believe these are made of anodized aluminum.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: THE FRY PANS APPEAR TEXTURED. CAN YOU "FLIP" AND "CATCH" AN EGG IN THESE FRYPANS? ARE THE SAUCEPANS TEXTURED, TOO?
They're not textured on the bottom. They're smooth. They have a pattern but I'm positive that you could flip and catch an egg with ease.
You can flip nothing sticks. so this is flat and smooth
The texture is just a design in the frying pans. It is completely flat and a great non-stick surface. I have even severly burned something and the pans were EASY to clean! I have been very pleased with this set!
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DO THE INSIDE PORTION OF THE PANS HAVE BUMPS OR ARE THEY FLAT INSIDE?
The design is flat on the inside of the pans and skillets.
They are all flat. One pan with the red center looks like bumps but they're not.
