Thoughts on this heritage the rock forged cookware set?

Canadian Tire Link

I know enough to avoid looking at Crappy Tire's regular price. Looking for some opinions. Would greatly appreciate some insight or suggestions.

Hi, we bought that set when it was on sale. Maybe it was for $200?$250 a few years ago. After a year or so, the inside of the pots will get chipped and peel off. Not sure if it's safe to eat/cook out of
so we threw it out.There were like ...craters?holes? That's not the right word but inside the pots wasn't smooth any more. You can kinda see the layers. It had a rust/brown colour.
You might not notice it until you look at it close up.

I love my Heritage The Rock pans. We've had them for years and they're in great shape. One thing. There are different versions of Heritage The Rock and I don't like the ones at Canadian Tire as they are not induction capable. We bought ours at Costco and those ones are capable of working on induction cooktops.

I bought the 2 piece set from Costco many years ago. Nothing spectacular about the product and they were thrown out after a few months of use. I wouldn't buy again.

It carries a 3 yr exchange warranty. I would've brought them in and got them to exchange them.

Same here. Possibly the same 2 set.

Thanks for the insight. Any recommendations for a set? My budget is around $300

This exactly! I had a pan from CanTire and it did not hold up well... the set I got from Costco was of much higher quality and lasted a few years, they were still in good condition when I gave them away and upgraded to something new.
That's my 2cents worth

Well, didn't see anything within $300 if you want a really good quality set. Though if you can go for $400, I found this 10pc set for All-Clad HA1 Nonstick Hard-Anodized 10-Piece Cookware Set in Grey on sale at 50% off for $399.99 (Reg. $799.99) with free shipping from Bed Bath & Beyond in the link below. All-Clad is one of the best rated brands seen.

You need maybe a few non-stick pans for frying (small one, medium, maybe a wok/large fry pan). The pans you boil in, cook in you don't need non-stick. Stainless is likely best IMO for those pans. I'd buy a stainless set and add some non-stick fry pans/skillets.

Aren't these supposed to have like a lifetime guarantee or something? Or did an infomercial lie to me again?
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Not lifetime it's 3yr. #1 thing that kills non-stick pans is ppl doing nonsense like using metal utensils in them :rolleyes: Even "The Rock" pans which are allegedly much more rugged I'd never use metal utensils in them. Only use wood, plastic, silicone tools with them, clean them promptly (so acids in things like tomatoes, vegetables, etc. don't damage them) and they'll last for decades, even ones that don't have "The Rock" type coating on them.

Also beware do NOT use these if you have avian pets (birds) as the fumes from these pans will kill them--regular Rock is only PFOA free but still uses PTFE (Teflon). There are Rock pans that don't have PTFE & PFOA--the ceramic ones and then new "Zero" ones which are CT exclusive and also insanely expensive. I have one ceramic one, it's okay and a must for when my sister occasionally brings her birds to my house but the regular ones the non-stick is actually much better. You still have to oil the ceramic one, and it's still not as good as the Teflon ones, but hey it's better than a pan w/o non-stick.

Not specifically to the rock, but aren't most of these ads specifically saying they're metal utensil safe?

I (kind of) baby my non sticks so I have about a half dozen that have lasted me close to a decade. They weren't expensive either.
A couple pans coatings have become less non stick, but they're still okay for some things.
I don't even baby them that hard either.
