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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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...

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

First 6 month, it was an awesome pan, but after using six month, it is stick and coating off from this pan. And Gastrolux Cookware doesn ' t honor their warranty, they won ' t give you any responses when I tried to claim. I spent $300 for this pan that same value with a $30 pan. (read more)

We tried over a dozen different types of cookware, and finally we found Gastrolux. It is not that widely known, but you can buy it from a website at www.activeconcepts.ca It is so far the best cookware we have found. 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. Highly recommend anyone not was time or money on other products and invest in Gastrolux (read more)

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 more)

For 5 years the Gastrolux Cookware pans were awesome. They did not warp, very easy to clean, and they heated evenly. After 5 years the finish is totally worn off. If you fry anything, it is terrible to clean (worse than any other pan we have had) Although we paid $500; the company would replace the pans for $197 and made it sound like they were doing us a favor. You need to throw the pans out at 5 years. (read more)

I am very impressed with the Gastrolux Cookware and would definitely recommend these pans. I have only one large frying pan, one large roaster type and a saucepan and they do most all of what I need. I do intend to find a saucepan/pot without the pouring lips to be able to cook vegetables with the waterless method. (read more)

I followed the manufacturers care instructions to the letter for my Gastrolux Cookware. In fact I was even more careful than that. I only ever used wooden utensils and the pan never went in the dishwasher. However, within two week, I noticed that the coating was coming off around the inside and outside of the rim and the rim had even chipped in one place. This could only have happened on the draining board. I was really disappointed as I had expected the pan to be robust.
I suspect that... (read more)

My Gastrolux Cookware still looks like new, doesn't stick, so easy to clean (Even If I had something that got burned on it), you can also reduce the oils you use for cooking because it really doesn't stick to the pan, this are the best pans I've ever owned, really worth every dime, it 's an investment worth making (read more)

I would not recomend Gastrolux Cookware as you can buy TFal for an 1/8th of the price and get a better life out of it. Had exchanged pan twice which meant my driving 50 miles each time to exchange and even my third pan is going in the garbage now. (read more)

There were only 2 UK distributors that I could find and both were out of stock of most of the range and not getting more supplies in for several months. I think Gastrolux really do need to improve the availability of their product.
I found the frying pan works best if you heat it up high first before adding food such as eggs.
I bought the saucepans with 2 handles which are great although the smallest is 20cm and a bit big for heating up small amounts. It would be great if they did smaller... (read more)

I have a large two handled frying pan which I bought from the Greenpeace catalogue last year. There is still not a mark on it, no fat is needed and nothing has stuck to it. Really excellent quality. Buy one if you can find one they are not easy to come by unless you can get to Brent Cross.
Just wanted to share my enthusiasm for really great cookware. (read more)

I bought the Gastrolux Cookware saute pan without knowing the brand. It was on a special offer at Fenwick's in London, and I wish I had bought a couple more! Absolutely fantastic to cook with! And more than that, it is fantastic to wash afterwards. Nothing sticks to it! It is a dream! Would highly recommend! (read more)

I have owned Gastrolux cookware for over 5 years, and it is absolutely the best non-stick cookware available! It is a German company, with not much exposure in North America; however, it is available online. It is a dream to cook with, as we don't need to use oils, and it cleans up spotless with no scrubbing. I was hesitant on the price, but I have been extremely happy overall, and I would highly recommend Gastrolux to anyone that is looking at investing in quality cookware. (read more)
