Dear Lustre Craft:
My mother bought the set when I was 9-10 years old in early ’70s.
I inherited most of them and still using daily. ca. 5 years ago, we built our own house with all-electric.
Fortunately or unfortunately, one sauce pan’s handle part was broken and I contacted local agency, who could replace the product to the new version, which can be used for IH-cooking heater.
Other pans are not for IH-heaters, therefore, we cannot use much except at the radiant heater.
Even if we have some limitation to use, we still enjoy cooking and being amazed about the quality.
Lustre Craft is especially very excellent when we cook rice.
Thank you very much for producing such nice products.

My husband bought me the family set of pans in 2000 I am still using them today and love cooking . I expect this set will last my life time and plan to buy my children the same cook ware someday. I would highly recommend this product to any one who loves to cook or has a big family.

Let me start off by saying. I am from a Italian family. So with that said we take cooking serious . I am the youngest of 4. I am 42 years old now and growing up my Mom was always cooking. She only had one set of Pots and Pans that I can remember seeing her use. That was Lustre Craft. I have 2 older sisters that have the same set my Mom had. I found out later in life that when my Mom got her set she also got a set for each of my Sisters who were not even teenagers at the time. So Yes both my sisters still have the cookware too. It’s been about 5 years since my Mom passed away and I have her set she used to cook for us. Now I am using that same cookware to cook meals for my family. It is in the best shape and it has to be 35 years old if I had to guess. It is truly a had me down cookware because I would be able to pass it down to my Kids. Love them.

I bought my cookware in 1983 and gave it to my mother. It’s the only cookware she has used all these years. The knob on one of the tops has broke but it still works. Who would have ever thought it would still be in excellent condition after all these years!

My fiancé and I were planning our wedding when a friend of ours asked if he could set an appointment with us to demonstrate a cookware product. We were interested and said, “yes”. That was in 1957. We purchased a set of Lustre Craft cookware from him and have used it for 60 years. During the demonstration we were impressed with the feature of waterless cooking which we had never heard of before. It truly must be a healthy way of food preparation because we are both in our 80’s and have excellent health. Of course we are aware of good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, but food preparation is an important part of nutrition. This set of cookware has moved with us to many parts of the U.S. and beyond. It is still in fine condition. No dents or bruises. The only time we had a problem was when as a young bride, I set the gas burner on the stove too high and damaged the handle on the small saucepan. I contacted Lustre Craft. The company not only sent us a replacement handle for the small saucepan but also sent replacement handles for the entire set. We were amazed. When this company promises a lifetime warranty they mean it and proudly stand behind this American made product. Our set of Lustre Craft cookware is the best investment we made when we started our new life together. We would do it all over again if we needed cookware but we don’t due to the quality of this product. (Feb. 1, 2017)

I purchased my pots and pans in 1961 or 1962 from a door to door salesman. I’m still using the pots and pans and I still love them, and they still look like new. I have the square pots and pans , perfect for pouring. Thank you for such a great product.

I purchased my lustre craft set from my cousin, Bob Sturtevant, who was representing lustre craft, in 1957 just before I graduated from nursing school. I have used it daily ever since then, and aside from a couple broken handles, it is in perfect shape! A great value!

My parents bought a set of Lustre Craft for me in 1962 before my marriage in April of that year. I am still using most of the pots but have discarded a couple because the handles broke off. It is fabulous cookware and I can’t believe I still have most of the set after 54 years of use! Glad to see you are still in business!

Dear Luster Craft:
My mom bought her set in the early 60s. It has been heavily used daily for over 46 years now. A few years ago I was able to trade my mother my Calphalon Stainless for these (which i always wanted) when her fancy new high tech cooktop didn’t work with them. These are so superior and indestructible compared to anything you can buy even in the fancier cooking stores. Except for the handles, which are showing wear after all that use, these look brand new. They have burned things and been scoured, cooked on electric and gas, been banged on for new years, and they are perfect.

Hi my name is Susan and I have been a Lustre Craft owner for 47 years. While in high school in Brea, CA, the senior girls were given the opportunity to buy a 22 piece set of pots and pans. These pans were very costly at the time but my mother thought it was a good investment at $250.00
Well, I still have them and are the only pans I have ever owned! They will never wear out! My daughter says she can’t wait to inherit them. I told her she will just have to wait because I’m not done with them yet. What a lifetime bargain I got! Thank you Lustre Craft.

I purchased my set of Lustre Craft cookware in 1967, but didn’t use it until I got married in 1972. While my marriage didn’t last, my cookware did! I have used it every day and have never had to purchase any other cookware. It cooks beautifully and is a breeze to clean. After 44 years of daily use, it still looks like new. What a terrific product! One of the best investments I’ve ever made!

I bought a complete set of this at the Texas State Fair over 20 years ago .. it is used daily and heavily .. every time I moved – which has been a lot, this is one of my main items of value to get packed first. .. it still looks brand new and I have not bought one single pot other than a pressure cooker for canning since buying these – yes they are expensive – but if you average how often you replace a burnt pan it’s worth it in the long run … they maintain heat on low and are easy to clean .. love – love these .. what prompted my review was I am currently cooking a meal in them and was telling my husband how much i have loved these pots over the years.
