I have had my pots for 25 years now and they are the best investment I have ever made! I have even successfully made the pineapple upside down cake - it was great .
Thank goodness I bought my pots and china before I got married - because when I got divorced they were still mine!
After using these pots for 39 years they look like new. I would never change them for any other type of cookware because everything turns out well each time I cook. When I bought them at 20, I really couldn't afford the price - but now I couldn't afford to do without them.
I bought my cookware in 1975. They still look like new. They clean up really well with little effort. Cooking food in them is great.
Bought my cookware 31 years ago. I loved them so much that when it was stolen in a break - in, I bought it again. I also took this opportunity to add to my china. Thanks again.
I bought my cookware and china in 1975. I have never bought or used any other products. I love them and I can honestly say I believe in Vacumatic and you will too. I'm not yet 50 years old. I was smart to buy them when I was young.

I bought my Vacumatic cookware in 1971. They are great. Ron Geyer brought me new handle for my pots and pans today and I told him my story of my eggs. I was cooking two eggs in one of my pots in water. I forgot about them and so the water ran out about a half hour later.
I was upstairs getting ready for work (about 7:00 am) when all of a sudden there was a big bang in the house. I ran downstairs and saw that the 2 eggs had literally jumped out of the pot and exploded into smithereens - all over the walls, curtains, stove floor and ceiling. They had literally hit the ceiling side by side. Considering all this, my pot is still in great condition!
I have managed to find your website by searching on Vacumatic . I have a set of cookware my parents bought me in 1967 from a local sales lady that came to your home and performed demonstrations. I have used my cookware almost every day since then and they still look great and still have that "magic" vacuum when the lid is put on right. The only difficulty is that some handles need replacing. I live in Chatham between Windsor and London and would like to know if there is a vendor close by that I could take my cookware to be fixed. My cookware still works great and I don't want to replace them with a new set. Can you help me please?
I bought my cookware and china 40 years ago. Looks brand new - just had handles replaced.
I began my first full-time job in 1967 and I purchased (I believe 1968) the 23 piece set. I don't remember what I paid, I only remember it was a large sum of money for pots and pans at that time. I have been cooking in these pots for 37 years and they look as good as the day I bought them. (I'm attaching a couple of pics).
I am thrilled to find your website to be able to get a new handle. Your product is supreme. Back in 1968 I tried to convince my girlfriend to buy the same set but she said she couldn't afford it. Well, at least six sets of pots and pans later she said she wished she had taken my advice! I look forward to hearing from you about the handle and thank you for your time.

Well, I must say that I am more than pleasantly surprised! I didn't expect that the company would still be around after so long, and I thought that I'd take a chance and give Vacumatic a Google. Ta-da! I purchased my set of cookware in 1981 or 1982, when I was 17 years old. I have used them with pleasure since then, and have nothing but good things to say about the line (if I can ever be an advocate!). What I
am needing is a replacement piece for one of the saucepan lids, as I can't mend the one I have any longer. I am tickled just to see that you are still around! Yay! So, on that note, I am off to check out the site further - might need that double boiler...
Hello, Belkraft .... Here's a great story for you! (Sept.'06)
When my daughter was 2 (in 1964), a door-to-door salesman rang my doorbell, and pitched your cookware set. From looking at your website, I believe it was either a 19- or 23-piece set. If I bought the cookware, a set of china, service for 8, was thrown in for free. And if I bought the completer set (platters, gravy dishes, sugar/creamer, etc.), matching stainless steel flatware and crystal (both service for 8)
was thrown in for free. To make a long story short, I think I paid $23.85 a month for quite a while.
My daughter now has the china. The crystal pretty much got broken. The flatware is missing many pieces. But that cookware has lasted all this time, and is only a bit scratched, but I only had one needed repair - the handle on the lid to the dutch oven came off and my brother-in-law had to fix it for me (this was within the last couple of years). It still cleans up remarkably well with a little Scotch-Brite on the inside and bottom, and I clean the shiny outside with a past of flour and vinegar and buff to a bright shine.
Needless to say, I have never regretted my purchase! You guys make a terrific product, and I expect my daughter to use it for over 40 years after she gets it, which I hope will be many years from now.
So, 40 years after the fact, I want to thank you for making such a fine set of cookware.
Sincerely, Mikey Kerns, Payson, Arizona
I purchased my Vacumatic cookware forty years ago in Kansas City MO right after I graduated from TWA flight attendant school. The gentleman who sold the set to me said that it was guaranteed for life. I noted on your web site that you are still in business and selling pots and pans that look just like mine.
I would be most amazed and delighted if you would honor the promise that the handsome young gentleman salesman made some forty years ago and replace my small frying pan.
Thank you for your consideration,

In 1968 I purchased my ‘ first ' set of Vacumatic cookware, the19 piece set. That was also the year that I purchased my ‘ last ' set of cookware.
The very large salesman that I purchased from stood on the pans to prove their endurance.
39 years, 1 husband and 3 kids later I still use that same Vacumatic cookware everyday. Because the years have taken their toll on some of the handles, I was delighted to discover that I could still replace the handles.
As a young secretary in the sixties, the initial investment seemed enormous. Almost 4 decades later I appreciate the value of quality and am delighted that Vacumatic not only ‘stand' on their products, they also ‘stand by' their products.
We are still using the set of pans my wife bought when we were first married almost 39 years ago. We need to purchase new handles for the 8 Quart pan. We cannot believe how these pans have held up over the years. They are the best.
