  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    Just wanted to say I have used this cookware since 1959 and it still looks and works like new. I got new handles this year and people think I just bought the cookware. Thanks for such a great product.

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    I saw my first demo in the mid 60’s when my parents went to a relative’s house for a free dinner. My parents could not afford the pots at the time but we had a good time and I never forgot watching the pots cook on top of each other. Well approximately 40 years later I met Cindy and Sandy at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans and purchased the Basic Set. I had seen the demo here before, but it just so happened that my husband had recently had a double lung transplant which necessitated me to learn a new way to cook without salt, oil or sugar since his medications have side effects. He is a diabetic as a result. When he first came home, our pots had just arrived. He laughed at first saying, “How much was this?” He still doesn’t know and is constantly told, “Don’t ask!”
    At first, after surgery in the hospital with healthy food, he was getting 5 insulin shots a day to control his glucose. Then, when we started cooking in our new pots with no water, no oil, and no salt, we had to start every morning giving him sugared juice to bring up his glucose level as it was too low. Then, we made a trip for a routine check-up and explained that since we were really watching his diet, with no salt, no oil, and watching sugars, we had to give him sugared juice regularly to keep his level up so they lowered his amount of insulin shots. They reviewed his levels and said if his level is below 110, we should not give him the insulin. For the next two weeks, he should have had 56 insulin doses but he only needed and received 21. For the past week, he has had no insulin and is running at levels of 80 to 108! I have been cooking for him for 32 years and he is not eating any less or anything different. Just cooking differently with our new Lustre Craft Cookware and this is wonderful.
    Just a little quickie. He loves sweet slaw. I use the Kitchen Kutter and grate 1/4 head of cabbage, and then grate one whole carrot, add a 1/2 cup of raisins and some plain yogurt with a sugar substitute and chill and he OINKS out. Special thanks to Cindy and Sandy. They may not know the medical benefits from this product. But it can be a life saver. Good luck girls and GOD Bless You.

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    I have always loved vegetables, but I was truly amazed at the true taste they had after being cooked in my Lustre Craft cookware. Between the cooked veggies and the “Demonstration Salad” featured at the state fair I attended in Maryland, I lost 15 pounds with no effort. When I returned to the fair the next year, Betty Hahn remembered me from selling me the set the previous year. The great customer service and the last-a-lifetime products have me still, years later, spreading the word to all of my friends about West Bend. Thank you for helping my family members stay healthy in a most delicious way!

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    I have my grandmother’s set which I believed she purchased in the late 50’s. My mom and my maternal grandmother swore by this cookware and the number of meals prepared was countless. This cookware went through tornadoes (which completely devastated my grandmother’s home) and 2 hurricanes which I lost my home to. But the cookware was always salvaged and is still in use. Every Sunday morning before church, there were pounds of bacon and sausage cooked in the skillet both electric and on the range. Also 5 pounds of potatoes were shredded using the Kitchen Kutter and fried. This has been a tradition for many a year. Every year the whole family gets together for a 4-day family reunion and these big breakfasts are still a big hit. Grandma would be so proud of us still cooking together and gathering for our meals with a lot of laughter and love.
    Yes, your cookware helps us to cook healthier and that is great. But I think that the endurance of this cookware is something that can’t be beat. I know when I bought my new set my husband said he knew that I really didn’t need it since my grandma’s cookware looks just as shiny and new as my new set but my daughter is 11 and I thought that this new set will be something that she will have forever and can pass down to her daughter or son some day. I love your products and would recommend this set of cookware and bake ware to all. Thanks for such a wonderful product.

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    Our new cookware is everything it was said to be and more. We are enjoying the learning process and find the info included very helpful. We are amazed how easy it is to prepare the most difficult of foods and love the stackable cooking. This is by far one of the best investments we have made. We look forward to many years of healthy and enjoyable cooking. Also the counter weight lids are truly a blessing when the pots and pans are hung on the wall. We just keep discovering more fun and joy with our new cookware. Thank you and blessings.

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    The cookware is wonderful. I had given up cooking when I saw the demonstration at the Knoxville Convention Center. I was visiting a friend in Townsend, TN. She had told me about her cookware and how much she loved it. We planned a trip to coincide with the Home and Garden show in Knoxville. I have cooked every day since I received my cookware. I was tired of the same old recipes that I grew up on. Since cooking with this cookware mine and my husband’s appetite has returned for this delicious food.
    Although I am still learning how to convert recipes for diabetics to this cookware, I am having fun learning.
    Thanks so much for your wonderful cookware. It is an investment I should have done many years ago.

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    I am more thrilled than I can say to have received my cookware from Lustre Craft. I live near West Bend, WI and am pleased to be able to support a local company, especially with the amount of out-sourcing of many businesses these days.
    My mother had a set of these when I was just a girl and I can remember a representative cooking at our house. Owning a set has been a life-long dream, which only someone who knows this product would understand. And anyone who didn’t know the product would think I was silly, or at least until I had their ear for five minutes.
    Anyway, since this is the fulfillment of a dream I am sure that you understand why I want to use them as designed. I made my teenagers sit through the video before I even washed my set for the first time! That’s how much I love the stuff! I wanted to make sure that I did not hear the credo of the teenager; “Well, I didn’t know….” Now they know and they will treat it right, because they know what’s good for them. 😉
    I fully expect my Lustre Craft products to outlive me. And it is good to know that my children will know the benefits of healthier, more economical meal preparation.

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    In 1958, my parents, Roberto and Antonia Parra, purchased a set of your cookware for about $400. We lived in Los Angeles, CA. I was ten years old and one of eight children. This was quite a lot of money in those days and a small fortune for my parents.
    I remember your representatives preparing a dinner that was mostly new to us since we had been raised on Mexican food. They prepared a ham with pineapple, vegetables and a pineapple upside-down cake. It was the first time I tasted meat with fruit.
    As long as I can remember, we (my mom and five girls) used the cookware to prepare three daily meals for the family as we grew to eleven children and my parents.
    Over the years, the cookware began to lose handles, but they continue until today to be used by my mom (she and my dad live alone now) to prepare fewer meals.
    My parents had long misplaced any literature that came along with the cookware. Over the weekend, my husband and I sat through one of your presentations at the L. A. Home Show and I recognized the cookware. When I got home, I asked my mom to look under the pot and tell me the manufacturer. Without even looking, she said Lustre Craft.

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    My husband insisted we get a set of Lustre Craft after joining in on a demonstration at the State Fair. I was reluctant to spend that much money at this stage of our lives (we’re close to 70), but I love it and am so proud of it. Then on January 1, my husband had to have a stent put in one of his arteries–this was sort of ‘out of the blue’ and he is now learning as much as he can about eating healthy. Thank goodness I have the right utensils! Thanks so much.

    Joanne from Lake Oswego, OR

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    My husband and I were attending almost every home-show locally. We were about to venture into a huge kitchen remodel. That meant no hot meals for approximately 3-4 months. After viewing a demo, I thought my husband wouldn’t even consider spending $$$ on cookware since we were spending $60,000 on our remodel. I was wrong! It turned out to be the best investment ever! I love to cook and the thought of not having a home cooked meal for months was very sad. On the first day without a stove or oven, I was able to prepare a full course meal using your Slo-cooker and electric skillet. My husband was shocked! My kids a little disappointed because they were looking forward to all the fast food. Now, I have a beautiful kitchen! But my husband tells everyone he regrets spending all that money because my meals were just as delicious using your “Lustre Craft Cookware” on a “small” bar area. Thank you for a wonderful product!

    Jessica from Diamond Bar, CA

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    This is the best and most energy saving cookware I’ve ever used. The food is just awesome when cooked with this cookware. Most of the meals I’ve cooked take about 30 minutes for 2 people with no hassle whatsoever. It used to take about 1 hour to cook the same meal and it wasn’t anything to talk about – not to mention the energy for 30 more minutes. Now I’ve been talking and talking a lot about these kitchen tools that surpass the very best. Thanks for being the greatest and MADE IN USA! YES!

    Jeff from McKinney, TX

  • Dear Lustre Craft:
    I purchased this set right out of high-school. It was approximately $500 and included a set of knives in a wooden holder (which I still use today) and a set of flatware (all have been lost). This was back in 1959. I was cooking Sunday dinner and thought about how long I have had these pans. I never did master the waterless cooking but the pans are wonderful. The only thing that ever happened to them was a dent in one of the lids, and one knob replacement. I also lost both cookie sheets. Those $500 were very expensive at the time, but they’ve have proved to have been a very worthwhile investment. Thanks for making such a great product. It will definitely outlast me.
