To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have lots of Cuisinart products, and they have all been good except for these mixing bowls. They rust in the dishwasher. They rust if you hand wash them and don't dry them right away. I bought these instead of the cheap ones because I wanted mixing bowls that wouldn't rust, and I got ripped off. These bowls are made of low grade stainless and are not worth the price asked by Cuisinart.
The bowls started rusting after ONE use! The large and medium bowls were used once, washed by hand with detergent, dried and rusted within 24 hours. I like Cuisinart products but this is severely disappointing, especially for something claimed to be "stainless steel." Look elsewhere until this product gets updated. It gets two stars instead of 1 for the lids fitting well and for the bowls still being usable.
I was very excited about these bowls. I’ve been using inferior quality for too many years and wanted the deeper dimension and heavier gauge I felt sure I would get with Cuisinart. Alas, I went to make a salad with the medium sized bowl and there is a crack in the rim. I’ve already thrown out the packing materials and don’t have the strength to initiate a return so I guess I will have to settle for being irritated every time I use that bowl.
When I got these bowls I loved them, and I still do aside from the fact that the I put them in the dishwasher and the tops completely deformed. At first I thought it was my fault since they may not be dishwasher safe so I checked back on the product description and it clearly says dishwasher safe. I can no longer use the tops and it pretty much defeats the purpose of this for me. My goal was to use this to prep or store leftovers and then cover in the fridge so I can use it the next day or whenever. Really disappointed.
We purchased our set in April and it’s now September and a crack has appeared. Just something to be aware of. We love Cuisinart products and this is the first time something has gotten damaged from their line within a few months of used.
