Does anyone have an opinion on WMF cookware?
I am seriously considering buying this: http://www.wmf.com/low-casserole-_825... , a low casserole with a straining lid, interior measuring scale, dishwasher and oven safe. But I have found no reviews on WMF. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
I heart chowhounders.
The lid is safe to 350 degrees, which is fine. This wouldn't be the primary oven pot, so really, that function is not essential anyway, but I did think it would be nice to have.
So I am going to investigate Beka!
Oh, Cutie? WHY is your stock pot more expensive than my little casserole??? But thanks for your feedback. Just what I was looking for...validation that this cookware is not way overpriced. Expensive, but not a waste of money.
I just received the taller stock pot.
It's heavy and beautiful. The lid is very nice. No sputtering. No steam coming out from the lid while simmering. Since the rim is made of plastic (or silicone?), it retains some smell of food.
I'm sure WMF cookware is well made as is their other equipment and will perform well, but I always thought the lid was a bit gimmicky and the added cost for that feature is quite significant. Did I see that correct? $190 on Amazon?
Even if my cooking style demanded that I boiled food a lot and needed to use a strainer, I don't think I would pony up the cash. I use a spider strainer for most pastas except spaghetti.
