  • Wolfgang Puck Stainless Steel 14 Piece Collection

    Feb 22, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent quality, durability, even heat, and price.
    Cons: None

    Summary: Purchased first set at Sam's Club late October, 2002 on recommendation of a friend who is a French chef. His opinion is that the set is of professional quality at a fraction of the expected $400 price. After two months use went back to purchase a second ... read more

    Pros: Even heating with no "hot spots". Looks good and easy to clean.
    Cons: Non-stick surface is a nightmare.  Getting  pans replaced takes a long time .

    Summary: I purchased a set of Wolfgang Puck Cafe Collection pots and pans at a Sam's club in 2002 believing that these were good quality pans at an excellent price.  I was disappointed after only two years when the non-stick coating started to blister and ... read more

    Cons: Handles get too hot on stovetop.

    Summary: I, too, bought this set of pots and pans from Sam's Club at what I thought was a good deal for about a hundred bucks (circa 2002).I was happy for the most part, especially with the omelet style pans because the non-stick surface was pretty ... read more

    Pros: Chinese manufacturers made an insane profit on substandard cookware.
    Cons: Poor overall quality, dishwasher-safe finish isn't, and molten-metal tendencies, should be recalled

    Summary: I believe that Wolfgang Puck's "Cafe Collection" has very poor overall quality and craftsmanship. The "Made in China" stamp made me uneasy at the store and I should have followed my gut on this. Quality is something that Chinese manufacturers regularly ... read more

    Pros: lasts long, good non stick surfaces, not too heavy to clean.
    Cons: handles and glass tops do get hot.

    Summary: I got my collection 10 years ago when I got married. My husband is the cook and believe me, he uses his cookware. Our non stick saute pan (which we use the most) is just now starting to peel the non stick surface! I can't believe they've lasted this ... read more

    Pros: Very attractive. Appear heavy and well constructed. Have glass lids. Stamped with "Wolfgang Pucks" name.
    Cons: Impossible to clean. Bottoms turned brown.  When food is braised or "browned",permanently discolors pan.

  • Rivets are eroding, not stainless steel?

    Pros: Nice looking pans.
    Cons: Rivets are defective and make the pans hard to clean near the rivets.

    Summary: One quart sauce pan 022006 used for soups.  The rivets are losing metaland are now cratered so they are hard to clean.  I guess the metal rivets are not stainless steel, the rivets look too soft.  I must have eaten the disolved metal, ... read more

    Pros: Wolfgang Puck stainless steel stock pot will work on induction cooktop.  Glass lid viewing easy.
    Cons: Handles become VERY hot.  Poor craftsmanship, stainless steel pot split on side.  Residue from dishwasher.

    Cons: 3 qt sauce pan/steamer pan flimsy. Loss of steam
