    Nick, if you scroll down to the Product Description you'll find your answer. It's 18/10.

    Not really cookware related but what about plastic bottles and aluminum cans? Its easier to find coke in a can than glass bottles.

    Depends on the glazing.

    I have been using a teflon frying pan, which now seems to have some noticeable dents in it, and a non magnetic stainless steel pot, so I am thinking of buying the Farberware set. What are the best methods to take care of this set? How long is it safe to keep them submerged in sink water? Is it true you should never use anything above low - medium heat with these? How long do you need to warm the pans before adding oil? Is it necessary to warm the pots before boiling water to make broth in them? And do you need to add oil to the pots that you are boiling water for broth in? And I read that if they get big scratches the sticking increases. So what would be the best kind of utensils to use with them to avoid scratching? Wooden utensils? I know Peat recommended glass utensils in his iron article, but I can't find any glass cooking utensils on Amazon. I've also checked out the Corning Vision Ware set recommended by ericrlepine but I've read there's a possibility of them shattering/exploding so I'm a bit afraid to buy those.

    I use amber ware (visionware?) and pyrex glass ware picked up at flea markets/thrift stores. The thick glass acts just like cast iron. The pyrex is thinner and works well for quick heating chocolate milk. ;) I am not worried about spontaneous explosion of the used glass. I think the stuff with issues has already broken. ;)

    Copper question. I have an old copper kettle. Does anyone know how I would test it to find out if it is pure copper? And if I can find out, would this be a good thing to use as my kettle?

    Also, is the white Corning ware any good? I mean in terms of leaching/not leaching anything?

    I don't know, but it can be a lot harder to clean than the glass.

    According to some people on this Amazon topic http://www.amazon.com/forum/cooking/ref ... CBKW8EWL0A pyroceram is what the old Corning Ware was made from and it is safer than Pyrex and Visions. I'm thinking of getting these Corning Ware pyroceram cornflower casseroles from http://www.shopworldkitchen.com/corningware/stovetop or some vintage versions on eBay along with a 10 inch Corning Ware pyroceram cornflower casserole for frying. Also considering lead-free clay and copper cookware. Any advantages to those over glass?

    I had all my mothers old stuff. It distributes heat poorly on the stove top, sticks and scratches easily. Cooking is a joy for me, cleaning is not. If I can't clean the tool in a reasonable amount of time, it is a useless tool, for me.

    I found someone here http://curezone.com/forums/am.asp?i=1042202 and here http://www.amazon.com/review/RXTOYRNU4QJ3O and here https://www.facebook.com/HealthRanger/p ... 4174433891 saying that Dr. Hal Huggins tested Vision Ware and found heavy metals leach from it and also says colored glass contains bismuth and that clear glass is safer. According to this http://www.mothering.com/community/t/32 ... s-and-pans Vision Ware also contain synthetic polymers. It seems the Salad Masters 316 Ti mentioned by Yves earlier in this thread may be the safest type of cookware with no risk of exploding glass or anything leaching into food.

    :eek 23 piece used Salad Masters T-304 set on ebay for $999 - a lid cover for $30. Couldn't even find a price for a set of the 316 Ti but a single wok fetches $425 on ebay. ;) Well beyond my means!

    Or you can host a "party" and invite a distributor to come sell their wares. You can't order direct from the company nor does it reveal their prices as they use distributors and the party method to distribute their products. This won't do for me. I dislike intently this type of distribution no matter how good a product is. I just can't bring myself to cajole my friends and family to a "tupperware" party. :roll:

    I'm thinking of just getting the Farberware Millenium set after the possible problems I've discovered with Visions / Corning Ware. It will certainly be much safer than the chipped teflons and non-magnetic stainless steels I have now. For some reason the price of the set keeps dropping and is now only $79.90 on Amazon, which seems like a very low price for this set. It was $80.00 something yesterday and over $100 not too long ago. http://www.amazon.com/Farberware-Millen ... roduct_top

    I think it is kiran. It can be used on induction stoves.

    I'm ordering it right now. Only 10 left in stock.

    Yes, it is 18/0 steel. This set kicks butt, I own it and am SOOOOOO glad I bought it.

    Its at a great deal right now, $80!! It was running over $100 just recently. This is the lowest I have seen it.

    Thanks for the info Charlie. I'm excited about this purchase!
    BTW, everyone, there is only 7 left in stock but more are apparently on the way.

    I ordered last night after telling DH I was buying my birthday present and all he had to do is wrap it. ;)

    I had a very dubious coffee making set up. For the last couple weeks I've been using an eight cup Chemex carafe and a glass kettle from BBB. Chemex makes filter papers but I used regular #4 filters I already had. Overall I'd rate it a C+/B-, it works but it's slow and messy.

    Better, for the last few days, was using Ferrara instant espresso. I think it tastes great and heating one cup of water is a lot quicker, and I found it locally for US$4.59. That is now my default set up, no leaching of anything.

    Chemex also makes a glass kettle that looks good.
