  • Cookware Question- Masterclad at Costco

    Hi! I was at Costco today and bought the Masterclad cookware. It is really expensive, but they were only going to be there till Monday so I bought it knowing I could return if I find bad reviews. It is a stainless steel cookware with a non-stick coating, which is not teflon. I can't find too much info. on the safety of it. Does anyone have any experience/advice?

    Any thoughts or experience with the new non-stick pots and pans??

      Couldn't find any information on their site about what goes into the coating: MasterClad Professional Cookware Commercial Grade

      Personally I have a seasoned cast iron griddle/pan combo and stainless steel saucepan/stock pot combo that cover everything I cook. The term "non-stick" coating would give me reservations. I think a well seasoned cast iron pan is the way to go. Mine never sticks. Lodge makes great cast iron and can be found on Amazon.

        I returned the pans. Not comfortable with the lack of info. I'm finding on the product. I have cast iron. I have followed tons of info. on seasoning and been using them for 2 years and they still aren't seasoned well.

          This is the tutorial I used:

          Seasoning Cast Iron WITHOUT Crisco?? [Moved from Home Cooking board] - Cookware - Chowhound

          It worked great, lots of smoke though, and after daily use and cooking lots of fat in them the surface is perfect.

            I bought the griddle at Costco for $112(online at masterclad.tv it sells for $160), it is supreme quality and works great. The guy said if i came back and bought a set, he would throw in 3 extra pieces worth over $300...just as an fyi. I wish I could afford the set, but I have better things to do for $600. besides i needed a griddle.

            But the quality is there, and has a lifetime warranty.

              Teflon is a brand name. There is almost 100% chance that the coating is a non-brand chemical equivelant to teflon. I ran into the dame thing last year at costco - the cookware I believe was called ameriware. the demonstrator said no teflon. When i got home I checked and it was the same type of chemical but not branded teflon so legally he could get away with it.

                The coating is not teflon. teflon is cheap crap and would not be on anycook ware worth its salt. I own the masterclad, and its not teflon....trust me on this. This masterclad has a solid non-stick coating, not sprayed on like a teflon. teflon you cant even use metal utensils. Tihs masterclad has a titanium blend in its coating, rock solid.

                  I finally broke down and bout an AllClad frying pan after Christmas - I had a set of non-stick that started to chip and flake that I just didn't feel comfortable using anymore.

                  I still have one that I use for my eggs, but for most of my cooking, it's stainless steel.

                    MasterClad is a superior (in my opinion) cookware made by Regal Ware in Wisconson USA. They are one of the very few American companies to not run off to China like All Clad has.

                    The pans are made with Magnetic Stainless steel and the non stick surface is Titanium in a ceramic base. This creates a NON TOXIC scratch resistant non stick surface that is guaranteed for life.

                    I have a set of these that I bought at Costco after extensive research and I totally love them.

                    These pans are well worth the investment and will last forever.

                      I love the pan I bought in the fall but today I noticed that the coating is starting to peel from the edge of the pan. Yikes.
                      Will that be covered in the 'lifetime warranty'?

                          I always seasoned my cast iron with organic palm oil shortening or avocado oil.

                            I too want to buy MasterClad from Costco.
                            After I did some more digging, I am really concerned that the truth has not been exposed.
                            Here are some more additional information that I found worth reading:
