I don’t have a crapload of cookware, just the basics. So when one piece is no longer usable it’s a HUGE deal to me. Well, last night I was taking the pan I had just made dinner in off the stove and it slipped out of my hand, the ONE 12"skillet that I have. Now I don’t care that it fell on the floor, but in falling the entire handle broke off.. Stupid circulon piece of crap. Now all I have to hold on to is a little metal stem about 3"long that will, undoubtably have me burning my hand eventually when I forget and grab it. FML.
Circulon has a terrible policy, after the same thing happened to my 8" skillet a few years ago I was informed that there was nothing I could do by a particularly nasty customer service rep. My grandma had the same set of cookware for 50+ years and nothing ever went wrong.. We kids used them as drums and walked with the big sauce pot over our heads making Darth Vader voices, left them out on the porch sometimes.. And nothing.
I drop a
The pan isn’t completely useless, it’s just got no handle now.. Which any sane person would just take and toss.. But like I said, it’s the only one that size that I have.
So I’m left with 2 options now...
1. Just use it until I can afford to get another, GOOD one. (I'm thinking I'm going to
2. Just go shopping and get one before I go and burn myself badly.
... And when I do get a new gleaming set of cookware I'll be posting to let y'all know what I get... and what I'll be cooking in it too :)
