Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t 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 analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've been using these things for about 6 months now. They are great. Everything you expect out of a cast iron pot. Typical maintenance is required. Oiling and seasoning and such. But the food comes out great. Cleaning is easy. I'd recommend this product to anyone looking for a good value on cast iron cookware.
I'm giving 4 stars, but the lack of a single star is probably my own fault/problem.
After doing some research, I felt $80 was a terrific price for a 5-piece cast iron set of cookware (and I still do), so I ordered this set.
I can't begin to describe how impressed I was with the shipping packaging. It came in a large cardboard box that was the perfect size to contain all the individual boxes that had the plastic wrapped piece of cookware inside each one. There was absolutely no chance of any piece being damaged while shipping unless the whole thing fell out of the shipping truck and was then hit by another shipping truck. Awe-struck impressed.
Every piece seems to be well made. They aren't too thin, although the handles are perhaps a bit small.
It also comes with instructions on how to use, clean, and care for this product, which based on my knowledge of cooking with cast iron, seems to be in-line.
My only complaint was that the cast iron didn't perform as expected. Despite the instructions stating that it was pre-seasoned, I had a real problem with sticking and cleaning this product. However, I am not convinced yet that this is a problem with the product and not some self-imposed problem that I simply haven't caught up with the learning curve of how to cook with and clean cast-iron.
These are amazing! As expected the box was heavy but I was so excited to get them open. I rinsed them out, seasoned them and put them in the oven on low for a few hours. I used them all today just to see how I'd like them. They do need to be seasoned more but I'll make that happen. Great price for these!
I really like this set. I was looking for a cast iron skillet and Dutch oven, and individually they cost $30 to $50 each. This set had two skillets, a griddle, and a Dutch oven for less, so I couldn't pass it up.
I read a lot of reviews that said the product arrived rusted, but I didn't have that issue at all. Each item was wrapped in plastic and had the silica gel packets in them to keep out moisture. They were also individually boxed so no damage on any of them.
I already owned a full set of $50 per piece cast iron cookware. I've hand picked and collected piece by piece over the years. This set had all but one piece (the flat 2 burner grill) and was less than 2 pieces of mine on a cyber deal before Christmas. I was hesitant but since it was for my college student who really doesn't cook much but misses cast iron when she goes to school, I bought it. I am so glad I did. It is a great quality and although a tiny bit lighter, it is no less usable. This is a great value and a wonderful set to get into cast iron cookware!
Been using for a while. All items are great. Be sure to season well. No problems with any one of them. Came individually packaged for great support and protection and none were broken. Quality pots. Be sure to only use plastic utensils when cooking to prevent damage. If food sticks, simply put a little water in and bring to boil to remove. If you are not the only one using, please prep others on how to take care of them. Do not leave standing water to prevent rusting
I was a little hesitant to order this product because it was not my usual brand of cast iron cookware. The price was so good I took a chance and we are more than happy with the product. Everything is as it should be. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good set of cast iron cookware at a great price.
