Weight

The pots and pans are well balanced, due to their weight, construction and design. The pots have been described as being of medium weight to heavy. The bottoms are flat; and the cooking vessels do not rock on the cooking surface.

Handles

The handles are made of stainless steel and are securely riveted to the pot. They stay cool while cooking due in part to the open V-shaped design placed at the point of attachment to the vessel.

Use and Care

For successful meal preparation using stainless-steel, be sure to use the correct heat (lower than when using electric or gas stoves) and pre-heat the pan the pan properly before adding oil and food. One of the great benefits of cooking with stainless steel is being able to transfer food from the cooktop to the oven.

Customer Service

Responsive and prompt customer service is important to me. Some companies do not have telephone customer service and offer only an email contact form.

Not all companies who have these forms, answer queries. However, Neway International Inc. provides great telephone and email customer service. When I called Neway, the man who took the call answered my question quickly. An answer to my email query was received within 10 minutes.
