Sorry, I didn't had 11.5 inch saute pan in my bundle.
4"
I brought "T-fal E918SA Ultimate Hard Anodized Durable Nonstick Expert Interior Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator Anti-Warp Base Dishwasher Safe PFOA Free Oven Safe Cookware Set, 12-Piece, Gray". Not 14 piece set. 11.5 inch saute pan is available in costco (same exact one) and its height is definitely more than 3 inch.
Yes
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS IT DISHWASHER SAFE?
Yes it is.
I don't put mine in the dishwasher, but in the description of the product, it says that it is dishwasher safe.
Don't have a dishwasher but it says it's dishwasher safe.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: ARE THE POTS IN THIS SET SUPPOSED TO HAVE THE "THERMO SPOT" TECHNOLOGY? THE POTS I RECEIVED DID NOT HAVE THIS AND I RECEIVED AN OPEN BOX.
My two frying pans have it but not the pots.
The small ones dont have. The frying pans two, and the bigger pot has thermo spot technology!!
Yes. And the set is wonderful. You can see the spot in the picture. The bottoms are not flat, but have kind of indented grooves. I had a previous set of lessor quality that lasted 14 yrs. I am sure Amazon will take care of any problems. Be well.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THIS MADE IN USA? THEY COME UP IN SEARCH FOR MADE IN USA, BUT IT DOESN'T INDICATE THIS IN THE DESCRIPTION
No
Yes
Not sure if made in the USA - it is however very well made and I highly recommend.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: IS THIS SET OVEN SAFE? LIDS TOO?
Oven safe up to 350 degree's for both, but I have not tried it so I'm just going by what it says on this link. T-fal E918SC / E765SC Ultimate Hard Anodized Durable Nonstick Expert Interior Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator Anti-Warp Base Dishwasher Safe PFOA Free Oven Safe Cookware Set, 12-Piece, Gray
The description says they're safe up to 350 degrees. I would have to go dig out the manual to be more certain.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: CAN YOU USE THIS ON GLASS STOVE TOPS?
Yes, works great on glass cooktops! Just not induction.
I really don't know the answer to this question. Wish I did. Just want to add that I love, love, love my T-fal.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: DOES IT SCRATCH IF I USE A METAL WHISK?
I personally use a silicone coated wire wisk as a metal whisk can remove the coating.
With reasonable priced and safe alternatives, why try.....
I really haven't tried it, but can say I have stirred with metal spoon. I prob wouldn't chance it, but can say that this is even better than my 1st set of T-Fal I bought in 1999.
I don't know. I bought a silicone whisk to use with mine.
I'm unsure because I haven't attempted it, but it is very sturdy with other kitchen utensils.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THIS SAFE FOR A GLASS COOK TOP?
Yes, I have a glass top & no problems whatsoever. Great cookware.
Are you sure your cooktop is glass and not ceramic? My stovetop is ceramic and the pans are fine on it.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: BESIDES THE ITEM'S QUANTITY WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN T-FAL C770SF AND THIS ONE?
This set also includes a griddle and small fry pan.
The small fry pan doesn't have the Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator, otherwise they are the same
Griddle and small fry pan
I think that the quality is exceptional. I have had 18/10 nonstick pans that cost more than $350 & these are much better than they ever were. But, buy them and you'll see for yourself. Warning they will slide around on the burner so, hold on to them.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DO THE POT LIDS FIT THE FRYING PANS?
Yes
Not fully, but it wasn't a big deal. The fring pans are deep enough for most basic cooking needs.
No
No
The small one does. No on the large one
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE SIZE OF THE POTS AND PANS IN THIS SET?
8 in. soup pan- 6,5,4 in. small pan- 6 & 8 in. skillet. all have been great sizes for us. I am not allowed to use any of them. In the past when i cooked i always started with burner on hign then came down. can't do that with these, she never goes over medium heat. I kept some of the old,old pots,pans and skillet that i still use. hope this helps
Sauce pans are 1qt, 2qt, and 3qt. Dutch oven is 5 qt. Skillets are 8" and 10". This is a nice set for the price.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: CAN THESE BE USED ON GLASS AND CERAMIC COOK TOP
Yes they can. I have ceramic cooktop and they cook wonderfully on it.
Yes. I have a glass cooktop.
Yes they can you will not regret getting them
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: CAN IT BE USED ON THE NUWAVE PIC?
I don't see why not, they are very durable. They can be put in the dishwasher, I hand wash mine.
Yes , should be no problem.
NO! They cannot. These are anodized aluminum! You are talking about an induction heating cooktop that requires ferrous (steel/iron) content to work. It says right in the description at the top (by the pictures) that it is "not safe for induction"
I don't even know what that is. I guess the manufacturer would have to field that one.
yes
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: LIDS
What do you want to know about lids?
yes it comes with the same lids you see in the picture. These pans have been good to me so far. Great pans for the price.
Yes they came with the pans.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: WHAT SIZE IS EACH POT?
8 and 10.25-inch Fry Pans, 1qt & 2qt & 3qt Covered Saucepans, and 5qt Covered Dutch Oven
8-ins and 10.25-inch Fry Pans, 1 each 6-inch & 8-inch & 8 1/2-inch Covered Saucepans, and 10-inch Covered Dutch Oven

#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THIS HARD ANODIZED T-FAL HEAVY AS HANDICAP AND CAN'T LIFT HEAVY PANS
No
No
No
It's not very heavy. It's much lighter than my stainless steel set.
No they are not heavy at all
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: YOU HAVE THIS ITEM LISTED AS: T-FAL E918SC74/E918SC64.THESE ARE TWO DIFFERENT PRODUCTS.IS THIS THE T-FAL E918SC74 UTLIMATE?OR E918SC64 SIGNATURE SET?
The set I received was the ultimate. I believe the difference among other things is the dishwasher safe label. I was shocked at how nice these are for the price. We have been very happy with them.
Here is what i have ---- T-fal E918SC64 Ultimate Hard Anodized Nonstick Expert Interior Thermo-Spot Heat Indicator Anti-Warp Base Dishwasher Safe 12-Piece Cookware Set, Gray
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THIS INDUCTION COMPATIBLE
No
Yes
I am sorry, i don't know what you mean by "induction compatible". I do know it is the best set I ever had, and is dishwasher safe and oven safe.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: IS THE NON STICK COATING FREE OF PFOA AND PTFE?
"The Tefal non-stick coating is a technical coating made from a polymer name polytetrafluoroethylene = PTFE. It is PTFE which gives the cookware the non-stick properties." - from the FAQ located at website http://www.tefal.com/faq
No PFOA, LEAD, or Cadmium: no mention of PTFE? I bought based on new pro-metal non stick. If you can use metal & not scratch, less chance of anything flaking off into food. But still prefer plastic utensils for longevity.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: ARE THEY HEAVY?
Not really heavy but have some weigh to them for sure... They are pretty good, we use them everyday and pretty happy with the quality ...
No I don't think so. We rally like them
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE SIZES OF EACH POT AND PAN
T-Fal e918sh ultimate hard anodized nonstick dishwasher safe oven safe cookware set, 17-piece set, black. Set includes: 8-inch fry pan, 10,25-inch covered fry pan, 1-quart and 2-quart covered saucepans, 5-quart covered Dutch oven, 5-quart steamer insert.
It tells you what size each pot and pan is and how many lids if u scroll down. They have different sets
Well Bob, when I ordered this set for my daughter, the sizes were stated, sorry can't do better than that
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DO THESE POTS AND PANS NEED TO BE SEASONED?
Yes. I can't remember the exact instructions, but it was something like heating the pots slightly and rubbing with oil.
No they have a Teflon surface
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: IS THIS SET COATED WITH TEFLON? OR WHAT MAKES IT "NON-STICK" AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
It is hard anodized. Different than Teflon, easier to work with. I use metal utensils on it all the time.
It is a type of Teflon, and it states when used correctly, i.e., no metal objects, just wooden and plastic and do not let liquid overboil, dry up and burn, they should last 10 years. Have had no problems with our set, totally happy. Hope this helps.
Hard anodized is what is used to make it non stick.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: CAN THEY BE USED ON A GLASS TOP STOVE?
Yes, they can be used on a glass top stove. I have one and they work just fine!
YES! I use them on mine everyday.
Yes! That's what I use them on.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: HAS ANYONE HAD DISCOLORATION ON THE OUTSIDE AFTER USING THE DISHWASHER? I READ THAT THE BOX MENTIONS IT. JUST WONDERING IF ANYONE'S EXPERIENCED IT
Yes, on cookie sheets that were next to the pans.
I put mine in the dishwasher and have not experienced any discoloration.
I always handwash mine because I know the dishwasher can be hard on them. I LOVE my set!
no outside, but now that you asked, when you are boiling potatoes etc. the water become reddish color, almost purple. IT's crazy
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHICH TEFAL SET IS GOOD FOR INDUCTION HOBS?
VERY NICE PRODUCT
Not knowing what "induction hobs" is, ANY of TeFal products are GREAT ... u can't go wrong w/ their products!!!
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: ARE THE SKILLETS THE DEEPER TYPE, OR THE SHALLOW ONES WITH SLOPING EDGES? THEY ARE PICTURED BOTH WAYS IN THE AD PHOTOS.
Deeper
We purchased the set for our daughter and although I'm not using them I've seen them. The skillets seem to be a little deeper than a single Tfal skillet that we use ourselves. Hope that helps...BTW, my daughter said these are the BEST pans she has ever used!!
It's the shallow one with the sloping edges. That is the one I purchased but they have others as well.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: ARE THEY MADE IN USA?
USA or Canada
I Really don't know. I gave them to my daughter for a I don't really know. I gave them to my daughter for a Christmas present and she has them.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: WILL THESE WORK ON AN INDUCTION COOKTOP
I don't know for sure, I don't have an induction cook top. Based on the fact that these pans are non magnetic, I don't think they would work with an induction cook top.
YES, AS FAR AS I CAN TELL
not sure what that is, sorry contact TFAL sure they will answer your question
Hi - you should check your owners manual. I have a gas range, so do not know for sure. They're normal non-stick pans, so I'd be surprised if you couldn't use them.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: USE WITH INDUCTION COOK TOP
The description on Amazon's website says "Safe for all cooking methods except induction".
Yes, you can use with the induction cook tops.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: HOW WELL DOES T-FAL E918SC74 OR 64 HOLD UP ON A GLASS TOP RANGE? DOES IT WARP, SLIDE ALL OVER THE PLACE, COOK THE RUBBER HANDLES ETC. ON THE TOP OF THE RANGE?
They hold up very well. I do not put mine in the dishwasher. They're amazing!
It doesn't warp, slide, or burn the handles. Best pans I've owned.
I have seen no difference at all. I love these pans.I have not had problems with warping and the handles are safe in the oven up to 375 I believe...it may be even higher.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: CAN THESE POTS AND PANS BE USED WITH AN INDUCTION STOVE TOP?
They say they can. I don't have one so I can neither confirm nor deny.
Yes, they can.
I'm not sure
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET A LID FOR THE LARGER SKILLET (THINK IT IS 10.25"). THANKS!
I needed a needed a 12" lid for my skillet and finally got one at my local wal-mart. For T-fal, no.
I use a stainless steel "universal" lid that fits multiple size pots and pans. I have seen them in many stores. Search Amazon.com--I feel sure they would have them. Or try housewares sections in department stores, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc
I would try Ebay
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHICH PANS ARE THE NONSTICK ANTERIOR?
All of them.
They are all non stick.
If your asking about the set here they all are. I love them!!
The whole set.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: IS THIS PFOA FREE?
Yes, they have a checklist and this version is pfoa free.
According to the manufacturers description it is
Yes! it is free of PFOA. Hope this was helpful
to my knowledge it is. here's a link with more info: http://www.t-falusa.com/Tefal+magazine/Recipes/Non-Stick+Safety.htm
It is. It says so in the product comparison chart shown on this page.
Thank you very much
don't know what that is, but they are great pans for sure.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHERE IS THIS MANUFACTURED?
Hello, T-fal products are manufactured in the US. http://www.t-falusa.com/ Thanks for your interest.
U.S.A./CANADA SEB GROUP
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: CAN THIS SET OF COOKWARE BE USED ON INDUCTION COOKTOP?
Not sure but look for the induction compatible brand on the box
Nope. Safe for all cooking methods except induction.
No. These are aluminum and only cookware that can hold a magnet on the bottom of pan can be used on induction stoves. http://cookingequipment.about.com/od/cookware/f/Induction-Compatible-Cookware.htm
Yes, according to the Tfal website, these pots can be used with induction cooktop.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THIS MADE IN THE USA
On the bottom of my skillet it says it is made in France.
don't know and didn't care, it works for the 6 months a year I use it
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: IS THIS SET BETTER THAN THE T-FAL PROFESSIONAL SET?
I think so, I am really happy with this set. Well constructed, and deep sided fry pans which is what I like best, and the glass lids are great too. My older T-fal pans eventually peeled, I don't believe these pans can do that, due to the rippled bases
I guess all you can go by is the cost. I also am pleased with this set. After several months, they are holding up well.
No idea since we only have the one set.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: IS THIS SET MADE IN THE USA? IT COMES UP IN A SEARCH FOR MADE IN USA, BUT IT DOESN'T SAY IT ANYWHERE IN THE DESCRIPTION
Yes
Yes
No Idea
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: DO THESE POTS/PANS REMAIN NON-STICK OVER TIME? ANY SCRATCHING ISSUES? THE T-FAL LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER SCRATCHING OF THE NON-STICK SURFACE.
I have had some scratching if metal utensils were used but no issues with anything sticking. My old tfal frying pan is no stick after 4 years even with some scratches.
I recommend not using metal utensils on the cookware to avoid scratching. I have also had no problems with food sticking unlike my metal pans I have.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DO THESE POTS AND PANS SCRATCH GLASS TOPS STOVES?
No they do not. Best set of pans we ever had. Highly recommend.
Don't know, we have gas
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: IS THIS SET DISHWASHER SAFE?
It says they are on the manufacturer web-site, but there's really no need. They wipe clean very easily by hand.
I put mine in the dishwasher and they are fine.
I wouldn't recommend it-they're super-easy to just wipe clean, but over time, the dishwasher can remove the non-stick coating.
I agree with pjgraham62 there is no reason to put them in the dishwasher, they clean up like a dream. This is the best set I've ever owned.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: ARE THE LIDS INTERCHANGEABLE?
Yes, although it's not an exact fit. I was able to use a different lid on the pots/pans.
YES
No.
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: DO I NEED TO SEASON
I didn't but it wouldn't hurt.
it said on the instructions to wash and then heat on low heat, and rub with oil. however I didn't read the instructions until after I had used it.. they still worked great! the instructions say to repeat this process every 10 wash cycles or so.. hope that helps
I didn't need too.
I did season mine as directed in the instructions.
Yes, I followed the directions that came with my cookware set.
#T-fal_E918SH_Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: DOES IT WORK WITH GAS STOVE
my mom using them on gas stove and she is Very Happy
Yes, I have a gas stove and they work very well.
#T-fal_E918SH

QUESTION: DO THE SAUCE PAN LIDS FIT THE FRYING PANS?
The lids do not fit the frying pans, at least not in a useful way lol.
No
The lids do fit the frying pans. How interminable the lids and the frying pans are, ie. they gradually increase in warmth, when they are heated. So it's function of fitness is annulled.
One lid fits the smaller frying pan, but no lid fits the larger frying pan. Really makes no sense for the manufacturer to package it this way.
#Ultimate_Hard_Anodized

QUESTION: WHERE IS IT MADE, IS IT MADE IN THE USA?
I did a little research and didn't find where it was manufactured.
It is made in France
#T-fal_E918SH_Review

QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE POT SIZES?
The standard possibly a bit bigger but they are amazing.
They are as described. I believe the descriptions list the sizes. There is one small and two medium sized saucepans (varying sizes up), one large soup pan and small omelet frying pan and a regular sized frying pan.
3 sauce pans. 4qt, 2qt, and 1 qt. one large 8 qt stock pot all have covers. 2 frying pans, 10 inch and a 8 inch. I love mine! Good luck, hope this helps.
