Rated 1 out of 5Â by libertyinmo Handles on Farberware Classic Series break off
We bought a whole set of Farberware classic cookware which included this frypan as well. The lifetime warranty would make you think that it is well made of high quality components. Not so unfortunately, and since you have to return the item to Farberware before they will replace it, it gets rather pricey to fulfill the warranty. They have replaced my larger fry pan twice for me and also my 8 quart stock pot. Now the handles on my larger frypan and this frypan are broken again and I am debating on whether I should bother to have them replaced yet again or just get something different.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Molly Cornwall Farberware - decades of practical use
For wedding gifts in the 1970's, I received two Farberware cooking utensils (a 4 qt saucepan and a 4.5 qt skillet), both with fitted lids. I have used them and loved them for decades. We have moved cross-country and overseas, and back again. The pots survived in excellent condition. Other brands of cookware have come and gone in my kitchen, but the Farberware remains! It's heavy, so it doesn't go skittering across my cooktop. It's durable, so it hasn't gotten dinged-up in our many moves. The Phenolic handles are easily replaced. My newest Farberware piece is the 2.75 qt sautÃ© pan with fitted lid. It heats quickly and evenly. The sides are vertical, not sloped, so liquids don't slosh out. The pan is easy to clean. Thank you for continuing to make fine cookware !!

Not like it used to be. I badly burned my 37-year-old 10" skillet and the replacement, though heavier, which is actually a con because of my arthritic hands/fingers, this pan has a bottom that concaves so much that most of the bottom of the pan does not make contact with my range top! If you can't properly heat up food in a pan, the pan gets a one-star rating! The lid does not fit securely, has a lot of jiggle. I will return and go with another brand if this is what I can expect from the new Farberware.

I bought this same pan in a set 25+ years ago. The handle finally fell off after years of wear and tear. Could not do without it so had to buy another one.
