Not the same as my mother’s set from 30 years ago….,
My mother has had her set of Farberware for well over 30 years, and has never had a problem. I’ve had mine for about 15, and I am now replacing this particular pot (the second pot in my set that needed replacement). The rim on my 8-qt and the one on my 2.5qt sauce pot have cracked. I had the saucepan replaced 10yrs ago via mail and the lifetime warranty.
I would replace it with the same pot, but I find that the plastic handles get too hot to hold bare-handed when I use the large burners on my gas stove. Also I’d like a glass lid to see when the water is boiling without removing the lid. So I’m in the market for something slightly different, but can’t find anything as good for a similar cost.
HOWEVER, when I was offered the opportunity to replace my cookware, I kept this pot specifically because the size is wonderful for making large amounts of soup/chilis/etc. The pot itself is not too heavy to carry when empty, and it fits in most sinks for easy cleanup (I have a spaghetti pot that won’t fit under my faucet). And it did last 15 years, being washed in the dishwasher and otherwise used and abused.
What makes this pot the best is the dimensions. It’s not so wide as to take over the entire stove, but not so narrow that it’s impossible to get a spoon inside and stir up a thick chili. The bottom is heavy enough to conduct heat and boil water quickly.
It’s a great mid-priced pot. If it had metal handles, I’d use 1-click on it right now! I may purchase it again anyway, but I’m still undecided.
