Where has the quality gone

published

Purchased new pot after using old one that I have used for last for 20 years plus, and is still fabulous. New one noticeably inferior. What's happened to the Quality

Great product once upon a time.....

published

Purchased a set of pots and cookware approximately 3 years ago at a total cost of $1000. My mother had Bessemer products that have stood the test of time. The pots are now of an inferior quality. The coating is poor and showing signs of fading and peeling even though they have only ever been washed by hand as instructed. The biggest concern however has been the extremely poor handles which have all become brittle and have started to fall apart. I am not sure how such a safety issue has not resulted in a product recall?

Not the product I knew

published

So disappointed. Grew up with Bessemer, bought a few pieces as mine from 12 years ago needed updating. The coating is so thin and fragile, definitely do not last as long as they did, have only had these ones for 2 years. As much as I love how they cook not worth the money if they need replacing so often. And you shouldn’t have to be so delicate to maintain these. Will now look at other brands

I understand from Teresa that she replaced your 2.5 Litre Saucepan base as it had a faulty handle. The coating was not bubbling or peeling. This review is not accurate.

Very happy

published

I have had some Bessemer for 30 years. Particularly love the round baking pan which I have used to cook pizzas on an open fire while camping and it still does the best roast potatoes, the old casserole is about dead, so am looking to buy a new one. Daughter just bought me a new Multipan, which will be cared for much better than my old pieces.

Purchased in July 1992.

Very happy with this product

published

Purchased a full set of pots and pans about 11 years ago. Have worn out the non stick coating on 2 of them and we are replacing them with the same again. Lasted a long time and hard wearing. By comparison we have cycled through 3 pairs of premium Tefal frying pans in the same time period
I think the wear and tear is normal and we don’t follow the care and use instructions as closely as we shoull
Would recommend these pots and fans 100 percent

Quality has gone down hill

published

My family has long used these pans and pots and when I moved out I invested a lot in my own and I was happy. Over the last couple of years I’ve been new pieces and I’ve not been happy and returned pieces for repair. The pans now chip, scratch, the exterior peels and I’ve had the handles literally crumble off. My current 3lt pan is now peeling after only a year or so and I’ve had enough. I’ve found another Australian brand which manufactures in Milan and the quality is not letting me down. I no longer recommend this brand for the high end price .

Peeling suface

published

We bought over ten years ago with the impression it would be our last purchase spending alot of money six pans and coming with a thought life time warranty . Dissapointed the coating is peeling on two of our saucepans. They were great up till then.

Date PurchasedMar 2007

Excellent

published

Having been the owner of two sets Bessemer cookware in 50 years am still delighted with the high quality. My last purchase was 30 years ago. Use them daily to feed my farming family. The items get a very hard time and have signs of wear but I have no reason to complain or be negative. Never thought about warranty or guarantee.
What I would like clarified is have been told I can send saucepans back to the Company for resurfacing or is this idle chatter. Hope to hear from you. Chow Mary

Linning is peeling as if it was only covered up

Bought mine a long time ago, but was told it was life guarantee. Nonsense. They can see it is just coated but will not replace. Bought a normal non stick for $20.00 works like gold.

There was no ‘lifetime warranty’ after 1993. It was 5 years. The documentation was quite clear at the time. If this was faulty workmanship it would have been evident within this period. 2 stars is pretty tough after 20 years use from this piece.

Not happy with the response. When purchased I was tols together with another friend it was life guarant.. I bought one 20 years ago from Kmart. Still as good as new. Only paid $17.00. Not happy. Will never recommemd to anyone.

I rarely write reviews but I am so happy with my Bessemer that I am considering getting more to replace the current pots and pans that I have. It performs as it should and VERY easy to clean!

I love all BESSEMER cookware!

published

I was recommended this product 16 years ago, I purchased some and haven’t looked back. I now own lots of this product, bits and pieces from every line.
I have got my Mum and sisters onto it too.
I live between two houses and have my cupboards stocked with Bessemer.
Friends come for tea and love the look of my pots on the stove.

Love Bessemer cookware

published

I've been cooking with Bessemer for 20 years and couldn't imagine cooking without it!
Not only do they add to the aesthetics of my kitchen, they also assist to produce delicious meals. The way the cookware is designed, means I can fry, bake and or slow cook with just one pan. They are sturdy, easy to clean and the non-stick surface means I can cook with little to no oils. Furthermore, Bessemer cookware is one of the only company's that has their own dedicated distributers. As a result their is always someone available if I need support, advice or have any issues with my cookware.
I absolutely love my Bessemer.

Date PurchasedJan 2000

No other brand compares to Bessemer

published

I've tried about every nonstick cookware on the market, nothing beats Bessemer. Durable, easy to clean, retains nutrients, saves energy, chemical free, induction base! What's even better is the 5 year guarantee and the trade in policy that no other cookware company offers. The best part is that you can become a distributor and get your pieces at cost price. It is simply a fabulous product. I love it and highly recommend it to everybody!

I used my oven dish for the base of steaming a fish but didn't realise that it ran out of water, now there is a large water stain on the teflon. Is there any way to remove it because I love this peice of cookware, it makes the best crispy baked potatoes.
