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.
The first thing that bothered me when I used it was the lid handle. The lid's vent is exactly beneath the handle which makes the handle too hot to touch (although the handle is made of compressed plastic). Apart from making the lid's handle too hot, the vapor made the interior parts of the lid handle corroded and it broke after one month of use. Besides, although I was always handwashing it with a soft cloth and was using a wooden or plastic spatula, the coating was fully scratched. So, I had to return it after one month of use.
The pot is extremely cute and high quality. However, it's not working on my induction cooktop and it was noooooot mentioned in the product information!!! Feel really not good when you own something you really love but cannot use it!!
I have used this sets for only 2 months. Now every time I cook the pan and the pot emit strong odor of burnt plastic. Also, the non-stick layer starts to melt ( I only use the wood stick). It looks good in appearance but its safety is concerned. I’ve never seen a pot like this. I won’t use it in my kitchen anymore. The second pic is the melting layer
After using these pots only for two months, these pots started losing its non-stick layer (yes, all of 3; I only used the wooden spoon). Very very disappointed about its poor quality. I liked this set when I first received them although one has a small scratch on the handle - now, it hurts me every time I looked at them. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
I have used it only once so far, but I will update it as time goes.
First off, this product truly deserves the design award for its appearance! It's a lovely pastel pink color, and the look and feel of it is pretty study. The glass lid also makes it easy to see how your food is cooking, and the knob on top of the lid is molded just to the shape of your hand. The coating is truly nonstick, but we will see how that goes after a month!
I use an electric stove and I did notice that the bottom coating chipped a bit after one use. I hope that it does not chip further as that would take away from the beauty of the product and also make me concerned about the inner coating (both are coated with the same layers). For a product that describes itself as highly scratch resistant, this is very disappointing.
As other reviewers have said, the handles get hot! Make sure to keep those silicone grips nearby in case you need to move the pot.
Overall, I really like the look of this pot sitting on my stove, but I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that it'll perform as well as it looks.
Update: I posted another review (didn't realize I had already written one) about the glass lid shattering in storage. It was placed inside the bottom cabinet of my drawer, away from a heat source, and was covering the stockpot as pictured. I heard glass shatter while in the living room and went to check the kitchen thinking it was my toaster oven. Everything looked fine, so I just shrugged it off. However, last night I wanted to make some chicken noodle soup and looked for my stockpot. I opened the cabinet to find that the glass had shattered into pieces! I have no idea how when I had not even been using it. It was in storage for a couple months at least. Maybe air pressure from inside the pot? That shouldn't be since the knob should have vents to let steam out. Who knows? In any case, not very safe and I have yet to clean up all the broken pieces.
I was so excited to receive this pot, as I bought a Neoflam frying pan a couple of weeks ago and love it. Was super disappointed to open the box and see a large piece of the exterior coating chipped off/missing. Everything came very well packaged; both the pot box itself and the larger Amazon box were in great shape, so it wasn't an issue with the packaging or shipping process, but rather the product itself. Disappointed not only with this piece, but also because I intended to buy several more Neoflam pieces for the kitchen, but seeing the poor quality here makes me think I'm going to have to go with a different brand.
Arrived with a broken handle. The handle is also ceramic and was loose when I opened the package. When I went to tighten the screw it wouldn't and further examination revealed the part of the handle that is inserted into the pan was snapped clean away. Your mileage may vary, but had I known the handle was also ceramic I wouldn't have purchased it to begin with. I returned it the next day.
