304 surgical stainless steel contains about 18% chromium and a higher perentage of nickel than "ordinary" stainless steel. The popularity of 304 surgical stainless steel is due to its gleaming appearance which lasts for the life of a product. Its excellent corrosion resistance is due to an invisible, passive oxide film that forms on the metal's surface in air. Sometimes 304 Surgical Stainless is referred to as T304.
Our 7-ply set, the KT17ULTRA, was made specifically for induction top stoves. There is a layer of carbon steel between the layers of surgical stainless steel in this set. This makes the utensils extremely magnet-attractive, perfect for induction tops.
The number of plies is really a matter of preference because the number of
plies is more about marketing strategies than quality. After doing their
research customers who have chosen either the 5ply or 9ply have all been
perfectly happy with their cookware, and we've never had to accept a return on
any set because of quality.
Other than the plies, the differences in the sets are quite minor. Unless they own an induction-top stove, we always tell our customers that it should be a simple matter of preference when they make their decision, because the quality is very high in all our sets. If you own an induction-top stove, you will want to order the KT17ULTRA set.
All the 5 and 7 ply sets have the steam release valve on the tops of the lids. All are constructed of a high quality, 304 surgical stainless steel.
The handle brackets are welded onto the pots so that no rivets or screws are inside the pans. A stainless steel flame guard is placed between the textured, virtually indestructible, non-slip handle and the pot itself. The phenolic handles are resistant to heat, cold, and detergents, and can be placed in an oven up to 350 degrees. Each handle is molded with a very large eyelet that will permit hanging the utensils. For convenient storage simply invert the cover, nest it in the proper pan and hang or stack your cookware
The main reason we can sell at such low prices is because we have very low overhead, we sell on the internet only and do not have a retail store. We do not do bulk mailings or public advertising. Since we do not have the extra overhead that most retail outlets we can pass these savings on to our customers.
There are several stainless steel cleaners on the market that you can use to clean your cookware. I prefer Bartenders Friend powder, but you can use any brand you wish. You can use the stainless steel cleaner for both the inside and outside of the pots. Just check with your local supermarket and select the brand you prefer.
This company markets the following waterless cookware and cookware sets, The Steam Control System, and ForeverWare. Chef's Secret and Precise Heat. If you own any of these brands you can obtain extra knobs and handles from the information on your lifetime warranty which was packed in the case when you received your cookware.

Credit card orders are placed through our secure server in real time. The payment information is sent to our merchant account and processed immediately. If the credit card is declined you have an option to re-enter the information or select a different card.
There are several reasons your card may be declined. In most cases it is because the Billing Address you entered does not match what the bank has on file. Your Billing Address is the address your credit card statement is sent to. This verification system protects you against credit card fraud. Sometimes the internet is slow and the transaction is not completed in time. If that happens, try waiting a few minutes and sending the order again making sure you check the following.
1. Make sure you check the correct card - Master Card or Visa
2. Make sure the Billing Address you enter is the same as the address that your bill is sent to.
3. Enter your credit card number without spaces or dashes.
4. You may also enter a different credit card number.
In a small number of cases the issuing bank does not provide AVS information the system needs to confirm the validity of the card. If this is the case, you MUST use another card - resubmitting 10 times will not work.
