Purchased mine about 18 years ago and it still looks and cooks great! I purchased Cordon Bleu. It was over-priced, but then so is the other "better" brands that you can get. I used to use it waterless and it did great, but as time passed, I got out of that notion.
I have had a handle to get loose and during a move I lost a handle. But I was able to get a replacement, even after all of these years.
Interesting that it is still being sold at home shows.
You may have had a lot of unfair things happen, but when you look back over your life, remember something good that has happened for you. Replay the good memories. Joel Osteen
