!980's Amway waterless cookware

Why don't we do allot of things years ago? Because we think it's going to cost more than we think and shipping is going to be double the price than the part.

I am so glad that you took the step and put your pan back in use like new again. Another happy camper.

Waterless Cookware Myths or Not

Which ones are you refereeing too: I wouldn't accept a set as a gift, if that tells you anything. Are you talking about the sets for $250.00 Maxam and Worlds Finest for $329.00?Or the ones that run $1600 to over $2000?

Maxam KT17 17-Piece 9-Element Surgical-Stainless-Steel Waterless Cookware Se $250.


I posted these 2 Cookware Sets above and was hoping that more would ether say they had one of theses set . Would like to know what you thought are on the cookware and the price they have on them.

It all sound good but are they built like the other ones that cost $1600 to $ 2200?

I really don't think that the price is bad. I do know that they are made in China.

Waterless Cookware Myths or Not

Yes I will agree with that.

Like I said above I gave you my opinion on what the best is.

But you don't have to agree with it.

An in another way we know what most would buy brand wise and how much you would pay.

So yes there a a best brand of cookware just by the way it is made.

Waterless Cookware Myths or Not

Now you are talking about what I have and I believe that it will be the future in the next few years.

Uses less electricity.

Now what type of cookware will be the best?

I really don't believe you have to pay thousands of dollars for the cookware, you just have to find your source where to find the best cookware for everyday prices.

Waterless Cookware Myths or Not

Here is a set of Waterless Cookware that I would like your opinion on:

17 Pieces
This 7-ply, surgical stainless steel waterless cookware set, which we call our "Ultra" set, is considered by many to be one of the highest quality waterless cookware sets on the market today. The manufacturer began manufacturing waterless cookware in 1950, and this was their very first set. History has proven this set to be a high quality, long lasting investment. The Ultra set is different from most waterless cookware sets in that it contains a layer of carbon steel between the layers of surgical stainless steel. Carbon steel is a heating element which carries the heat evenly to all parts of the cooking utensil and in the process prevents hot spots. This is important in waterless cooking, and allows food to cook naturally in their own juices within a complete circle of heat. The carbon steel was included in the construction of this set in order to make it possible to be used on an induction-top stove. The KT17ULTRA set is suitable for ceramic, induction-top, electric, and gas stoves. The handles are resistant to heat, cold and harsh detergents. This set weighs a total of 37 lbs. Lifetime Warranty.

Item No. KT17ULTRA
Regular Retail Price: $2195.00
Wholesale Price: $329.99

Now what do you think?

An this one also:

Maxam KT17 17-Piece 9-Element Surgical-Stainless-Steel Waterless Cookware Set

Providing a wide range of essentials, this 17-piece cookware collection makes a nice choice for those setting up a first-time kitchen or for anyone looking to upgrade. The set includes a 1-2/3-quart covered saucepan, a 2-1/2-quart covered saucepan, a 3-1/5-quart covered saucepan, a 7-1/2-quart stove top roaster, an 11-3/8-inch skillet, a dome cover for the roaster and the skillet (can also be used directly on the stove-top as an extra skillet), and a flat cover for the roaster and the skillet, as well as a double boiler unit, five egg cups, and an egg utility rack. Use the saucepans when making homemade marinara sauce, cooking lentils, or heating up soup; the stovetop roaster works well for cooking large cuts of meat; and the skillet provides a wide flat base and tall sides--perfect for one-dish meals like chicken and rice. Melting chocolate's effortless with the double boiler in place (it can also be used directly on the stove-top as a 3-quart saucepan), and the egg cups allow for making poached eggs. The collection also provides a handy recipe book with step-by-step instructions.

Best of all, the cookware can be used with the healthy "waterless" method of cooking. "Waterless" cooking allows for quickly cooking food on the stove-top at low temperatures and with only a very small amount of water--if any. It cooks in a way that retains almost all the vitamins and minerals (only 2-percent average mineral loss)--so veggies come out the same vibrant color as when they went in the pan. Even more, the high-quality cookware does not require additional grease or oil when cooking, which means low-fat meal options. Steam-cook food without the need for a steamer basket, bake a chocolate cake on the stove-top--between conventional cooking and the "waterless" method, the options are endless.

To ensure fast, even heating with excellent heat retention and no hot spots, Maxam's "waterless" cookware features 304 surgical stainless-steel construction, inside and out, with an encapsulated thick aluminum disk in the base, which consists of nine elements: chrome, nickel, manganese, silicon, aluminum, iron, copper, molybedenum, and vanadium. The nine-element construction means that the cookware can be stacked, one on top of another, for space- and energy-saving convenience. Start by cooking on individual burners; when the steam-release valve in the lid whistles, simply stack the pans to finish cooking. For example, a hearty stew with carrots and potatoes can cook in the bottom pan, while broccoli cooks in a medium-size pan above that and another veggie cooks in a smaller-size pan on the very top. The self-sealing lids help lock in flavor and nutrients, and they can be inverted for nesting inside the proper pan before stacking or hanging the cookware when not in use. Even more, the thoughtfully designed cookware features nonslip phenolic handles that are welded to the outside (no rivets or screws inside the pan) and can withstand an oven's heat up to 350 degrees F (though the cookware is designed for stove-top use only--no need to turn on the oven when it's possible to bake on the stovetop). The handles are resistant to heat, cold, and detergents, and they offer a hanging hole at the end to help save on cupboard space. Safe to use on ceramic, electric, and gas stoves, the cookware carries a limited lifetime warranty and cleans up easily by hand with warm, soapy water (pots can go in the dishwasher, but the lids should be hand-washed due to the steam-release valves).
