Michiana Housewares - Cordon Bleu Cookware - Akos L. Kovach. Scammed into buying overpriced cookware that is impossible to clean and handles become dangerously hot during cooking ripoff Niles Michigan
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Tainted Information
Well, wouldn't you know it but a few weeks after the event at the Joyce my husband received a phone call informing him that he was one of the "lucky" entries drawn for a home cooked meal. This man Akos Kovach came into our home touting his great cookware and cooked us a very simple meal of red potatoes and baked chicken. He then began pressuring us to buy his cookware. My husband and I had no intention of buying any cookware however Akos Kovach began to tell us the following about Cordon Bleu
He told us it was a safer form of cooking as little water had to be used so the "nutrients" of the vegetables did not escape the water. He also told us that teflon was unsafe and poisonous to the consumer. We were so troubled by this that we bought an entire set of cookware for close to $3000.
Now the truth of the matter. Cordon Bleu cookware is not healthier. In order to cook items such as eggs, one must dump so much oil in the pan to keep them from sticking that you might as well schedule your open heart surgery.
Second, food is nearly impossible to clean off of them. I have spent hours upon hours upon hours cleaning these pans.
The pans stain and once when they were brand new were a pretty silver are now a dull washed out bluish tinted color.
The pans handles become dangerously HOT HOT HOT during cooking. We were told prior to buying them that the handles in no way do this and were very safe.
When we attempted to call Akos Kovach about this we were met with hostility, contempt, and laughter. Yes laughter. He informed us that in no way would he stand behind his product and his exact words, "Your not using enough oil."
Enough oil? I thought these pans were supposed to be healthier to cook with. How is that healthier?
