My best friend has that set. She paid close to 3k after finance charges and she really regrets it. One of the handles melted clear off (er vent lids).

I could have a VERY nice set of cast-iron for a fraction of that, and it'll defiantly last longer.

For $2,000...buy Saladmaster!!! We : our Saladmaster.

It is the same concept of the "Waterless" and ROCKS!! ::: I don't think that i can use that little : enough to descibe how much we love ours.

My husband adn I about threw-up when we signed the loan (yes LOAN) papers for our pots and pans, but now we wouldn't want to be without them. We actually took 2 of our pans on Vacation with us to my dad's for a week!

I do not sell them and get NO money or anything for this post. And I would be GLAD to answer any questions that you have (well, what i can!).

I'm working on a longer response but these kiddos keep interrupting me!

I just wanted to let you all know I really appreciate all the input. Thanks!

We haven't yet bought anything btw.

Found this thread/site after doing a search on this cookware. My wife and I contemplated the purchase of this cookware today when visiting our county fair. Getting the price list shocked us to say the least.

I went home and put their website into my browser to see if I could get a better deal. The main web pages looks nice and professional. However, when you click on the "purchase" tab, it comes up with a page that says something like "no longer active". Suspicious, esp. considering the huge price tag of these sets.

So I did a google search on waterless cookware and I came up with this site and this link:
http://www.waterlesscookware.com/sto...?idproduct=276

It looks awfully similiar to this healthy gourmet cookware, though the healthy gourmet stuff did not have pressure release valves. What I found interesting is that this set is advertised for ~$1500 off suggested retail which would put it into the price range of the healthy gourmet cookware.

Until today, I had never heard of "waterless cooking" and cookware. Any of you have advice/suggestions?

Regards,
Pete

I've never had a problem with Americraft. There were a couple other brands sold at my fair as well, but I chose Americraft because my mom has had it since I was a kid and it still works fabulous. She had a problem with one of hers and they replaced it, no questioned asked.

So... as far as scams go, IMO Americraft isn't one of them. If they stand behind my mom's pans that are 20 plus years... they've got my vote.

I just bought a couple more pieces at my fair yesterday. (slightly puzzled that you weren't able to buy individual pieces, it's ALWAYS been an option for me).

I am confused, I went to the Americraft site, and I did not see the pots costing $3000 or even $2000??? What did you get for the 3000 or $2000 set?

I saw a 4 QT pot for 259 I think....and 1 for 179. Please explain more, thanks.
