“Gastrolux pans = piece of sheeet!”

Written on: 15/04/2014 by Faustfick (1 review written)

We've bought 5 different pans and all plastic tools also made by Gastrolux for operating (and, of course, "highly recommended" by manufacturer). After 8-10 months 2 of the pans stick everything (two others we'd bought for a present - shame on us!)! Now it's impossible simply to fry eggs even with oil on the pan - they're sticking! Maybe in 90-ies the quality was good... But not in our case. Only the one pan - stew-pan - is still just like new... because we don't use it. :)… Read Full Review

“Best cookware ever.”

Written on: 24/03/2014

I've had a lot of different cookware throughout the years, but nothing beats the Gastrolux quality. My oldest Gastrolux pan is over 10 years and looks like new! Never had any problems and never had anything stick in them. I can't understand the people saying that they had stuff stick, its bloody impossible if you take care of your pan. I've even started a fire in one of my frying pans after forgetting about it when it contained some oil, that pan is still in mint condition after i cleaned it… Read Full Review

“ok, but not worth the price”

Written on: 04/12/2013 by retina (1 review written)

I bought a 11inch pan from Activeconcepts, Ontario, Canada. It's great in the beginning and started to stick after 18 months. In my case, Activeconcepts totally ignored my emails to request them honoring the 20 year warranty claims. I was completely disappointed. Recently I contacted the salesperson at their new US distributer in Georgia and got the same answer that loss of non-stick property is due to food buildup, therefore my failure to maintain it properly. So the 20 year warranty claim is… Read Full Review

Any product that it's not maintein propely will not be under warranty! I have been used Gastrolux for the past 13 years and I still have my first pieces in perfectly condition, like it brand new! To bad for you you didn't kept it clean.

“disappoointed”

Written on: 02/01/2013 by housecooker (1 review written)

I purchased a wok from Activeconcepts on line on April, 2011. It was very happy to use it at the beginning, but started from last few months, it started to stick since there is some residues that I could not clean up even I tried shock treatment. After I contacted the customer services, they told me no free change since it is due to lack of maintenance. I have to pay over $250 to get another new back. Although this products has twenty year guaranty , but one sentence " due to lack of… Read Full Review

I have had my gastrolux pot for about five years to begin with it was great then gradually food began to stick and now the surface has started to wear, its a great shame as it was extremely useful on the cooker and into the oven. great but due to the cost i dont think i can afford to replace it and i'm not sure that i would as for the money £100.00 is it good value mmm?

I had a similar experience: bought a 11inch pan from Activeconcepts, Ontario, Canada. It's great in the beginning and started to stick after 18 months. In my case, Activeconcepts totally ignored my emails to request them honoring their warranty claims. I was completely disappointed. I contacted the salesperson at their new US distributer, basically got the same answer as shared above by "housecooker". I won't buy from them again.

“Gastrolux - First Class Pots & Pans”

Written on: 22/02/2012 by Hot-Chef (1 review written)

Firstly, I bought just a frying pan and was absolutely overjoyed with it's ease of use and efficiency. Since then I have bought a casserole pot, a saucepan and a griddle pan; they are all just as good. Superb build quality and so, so easy to clean; nothing sticks. Just a swish with warm soapy water and a quick rinse for a pan as good as new. I notice that a previous review, written from Ontario, speaks of nothing but trouble and problems contacting the dealer. I live in the UK and bought mine… Read Full Review

I found this review not helpful because...Gastrolux supports their customers very well. If you do a simple search for Gastrolux, you will find a distributor. There is a 20 year warranty, and they WILL honor it. We have had one replaced as I dropped it and broke the handle, AFTER 9 YEARS, they sent me a replacement right away. If you are having trouble finding a distributor check out www.GastroluxCookware.com and they can help.

Written on: 16/01/2013

We bought ours 2 pans at the Toronto home show many years ago and are not impressed with the pans either. The one I have used the most is not stick free any longer and now has chipped right in the middle. A very small one, but I do not feel safe using it anymore. We have been going to Home shows looking for them as well, but they are not to be seen ??????????????
They are not what they are cracked to be at all.

I bought my Gastrolux pots and pans in the UK from Gastrolux.co.uk and am more than pleased with the quality and the service, I suggest Mr R G from Toronto contacts them to see if they can help.

Written on: 22/11/2009

When I lived in Europe in the 1990's I bought a Gastrolux and after trying one piece, immediately bought others (and threw out all of my American cookware!). I have had all pieces for over 15 years and am only now starting to think about replacing a few, most heavily used ones. I always use non-stick utensils, wood or plastic, follow the directions for heating and adding oil, occasionally cleaning with oil and salt as directed, and never put the pots in the dishwasher. I love the even… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2009

I was sold these pans as they where supposed to be the best of the best and totally non stick. At first i was convinced but within 6 mths...not!

I have thrown one frying pan out and are about to do the same to the other! The Griddle is loosing it coating and I have it protected throughout. What is as disappointing is the lack of customer care from the shop (Cooks of Stafford UK)blaming not cleaning the pans correctly - which i did to the letter and as others have stated not using metal… Read Full Review

I absolutely love the cookware. I just purchased my fourth piece because I am so happy with it. It comes up like new every time I wash it and I can cook on high temperatures without ruining the pan. Unfortunately, it is a bit pricey but worth it when you get what you pay for. I don't expect to replace it for a very long time… Read Full Review

We absolutely love our Gastrolux cookware. We have the Wok, and two frying pans, as well as two saute' pans. I have had to replace the glass lids, as we have broke them several times, but can order them online at www.activeconcepts.ca, and delivery is very fast.

We found the key is to wash the cookware when it is hot, this helps to reduce the build up of food so nothing sticks. It provides a very even heat, and can go right into the oven. The best product ever… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/07/2009

We recently purchased 4 pieces of Gastrolux cookware as part of our wedding money received, and absolutely love the product. It is far better than any other products we have tried, and we have tried them all. It has a very easy to clean non stick surface, and as long as you wash the product when it is hot, it cleans up nicely. Highly recommend purchasing this from www.activeconcepts.ca, and if you are looking at more than 3 pieces, give them a call and they will provide a volume discount… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/07/2009

I have seen several reviews that are not favorable about Gastrolux, only to disagree with them all. If this cookware is kept clean, and not abused, it will last forever. We have owned the product for 13 years, and have continued to add to the collection. We had one problem with a handle, and it was replaced under the warranty program in a timely manner. This is a healthy product to use as it has no chemicals in it. The handles are oven safe to 500 degrees, and if kept clean, provides a… Read Full Review

It has a solid based for great heat distribution, the handles can also go right into the oven, and it washes up easily when it is hot.

We have owned Gastrolux cookware now for approximately 8 years. It was an invenstment, and with any high priced items, we take good care of the product. We have read several negative remarks, and have to say that the only way this product would become defective, is through improper care. It is not cheep cookware, treat it like an investment. Those that were provided information on the cost replacement must have been based on improper care as this is a rock solid product… Read Full Review
