    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, thick gauge, almost indestructible (almost), non-reactivity
    Cons: Sidewalls cook at different temperatures, possible danger if they boil out

    Summary: Before there was All-Clad and Anolon and Kitchen-Aid yada, yada, yada, there was Farberware. If you cook, are middle-aged (or just noticed what was going on in the kitchen), you can probably summon up in your mind shiny steel pots with their little ... read more

    Pros: Nice weight and I like the lids
    Cons: Too time consuming to clean up

    Summary: I owned a nice classic set of Farberware in the 1970's and gave it away when I decided to go with nonstick cookware. Although Farberware was a nice set, nonstick seemed so much easier, and at the time, it was the most popular. After going through a ... read more

    Summary: I only wish that I had held up as well during the past 15 years as has my set of Classic Farberware®. This cookware is fabulous. It’s not that it looks exactly brand new today, but neither is it dented or marked, or in any way shoddy looking. ... read more
