Dunno for sure, because I have not owned them long enough. But at least one person reported here that one wash hurt the shine. And the manufacturer states that the shine will become cloudy if you put it in the dishwasher, something I am prepared to live with if it happens. But I have had no such problem after a dozen washes or so. I think the reason might be that I use "gelcaps" dishwasher detergent that specifically says on the label "Completely Soluble". Most detergents seem have lots of abrasives in them. I'm not sure what the abrasives are, but I think it is probably finely ground sand or glass. Since I switched to completely soluble gelcaps, I have had no problems with pitting and clouding of ceramic, metal and glass surfaces.

Yes & no. I contacted Farberware customer service regarding this issue. I bought the same set & the "Use & Care Instructions" stated that they were dishwasher safe. After a few times in the dishwasher, the stainless steel was getting cloudy. I called Cust. Svc. & they stated that they do not recommend washing in a dishwasher. If you do, they stated that I can use a stainless steel cleaner to bring back the high shine of the stainless. Well, in other words, if you want that "stainless steel look", wash them by hand.

If you want them to stay bright, no. My experience is they will sometimes get dark and dull looking, and that won't come off.

Yes, but my dishwasher doesn't get them very clean. I just scrub them up with a dish brush. They clean easily. Will want to use a non stick spray, or oil prior to cooking though

I use them on a flat, glass top stove wth no problems. In fact, they have a flat, even bottom so work better than my other cookware that was not weighted properly and would "wobble"

If you are talking about a glasstop stove, yes. With any pot or pan you want to avoid dragging them across the cooktop because they will scratch the glass.

I am a representative from Farberware Cookware. Here are the weights of each piece in this set w/ the lids:

1qt. saucepan = 1.90 lbs
1.5qt. saucepan = 2.25 lbs
2qt. saucepan = 2.65 lbs
5qt. dutch oven = 4.20 lbs
10" skillet = 2.25 lbs
8.25 " skillet = 1.55 lbs

answer 2
The empty fry pan with the lid weighs approximately 3 lbs 10 oz. Perhaps more importantly, the handle is 8 inches long so it puts some torque on the pan when you hold it at the rubber covered end of the handle, where you should. I would not buy this for a tiny 85 year old woman with arthritis.

Question

Oven safe?

Is this set oven safe? I understand that some stainless steel cookware is and some is not. Several of the other Farberware sets include "Ovensafe to..." in their description, so it worries me that it is not included in this. I would rather have stainless steel than non-stick, but only if it is ovensafe. Thanks for your help!

I am a representative from Farberware Cookware. All of our cookware is oven safe. The cookware that you have has silicone handles which make it oven safe to 400 degrees. Cookware with hard plastic handles are oven safe to 350 degrees and cookware with stainless steel handles are oven safe to 500 degrees.

When I went into the store and looked at the box, it says that it is oven safe to 400 degrees. The online description says nothing about it, but the box says it is. I decided to buy something a little different in the end so I can't speak to it any further.

Dont think it is, especially because the handles come coated with a rubber like material so that they can be cool to the touch, and I'm not sure if they can withstand the heat.

I've already thrown away the box and literature.....but from my recollection, the aluminum is totally enveloped by stainless steel. The insides of the pots have the sheen of stainless. I'm like you, I don't want to cook on aluminum YUK.
