The 2-4 cup percolator kept tripping my circuit breaker. So I purchased another. Still having same issue with brand new one and now only 6 months after purchase the handle has cracked! My mom has one herself only 4 months old and has a cracked handle also! Definitely not worth the aggravation!
My family has given Farberware to each family member that marries, for 3 generations. Farberware used to be so fantastic it lasted 3 generations. The junk I purchased in the last 10 years is garbage!! Handles fall off all of them. Even if I tighten the screw, it doesn't matter. Do not purchase the stainless steel pots & pans!! The colored Teflon is really really really junk. They barely lasted 1 year. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY. IT IS NOT THE ORIGINAL FARBERWARE. FARBERWARE SOLD THE THESE NEW OWNERS. LOUSY PRODUCTS!!

I bought a $17.95 handheld can opener. This company wasn't smart enough to make it out of stainless steel so the first time I wash it, it started rusting. What sort of morons make a handheld can opener and doesn't make it out of stainless steel??? Farberware, that's who. Now that name is synonymous with crap and garbage products I will never buy from again.
The inexpensive Farberware pans look very pretty when you purchase them. Then you use them and all the blue paint burns off onto your electric coil elements. Now, not only do the pans look bad, but your coil elements look even worse. Just threw them into the recycle bin. Ruined my stove top.
I bought the Farberware Professional Cheese Slicer because it was all my local Walmart had. It only slices halfway through SOFT mozzarella cheese, for one thing. Also, even with that use, the wire has become so curved/bent in 2 months that it seems like it could fall off at any moment. There is a warranty described on the back of the package that says you have to pay for return shipping. Since that's really a scam for a $6 cheese slicer, I just prayed it would be a good product and that customer service would actually serve me as a customer if I had to call.
When I called Farberware, an automated message told me to call another number, where the person transferred me to the Lifetime Brands warranty department. The rep was *extremely* rude and sarcastic, told me "that's how warranties work" (no, good brands pay for return shipping of defective products), and treated me as though I were stupid for buying it with that warranty written right on the back.
This Farberware hand held food chopper broke the first time I used it. The plastic surrounded the sharp blades came off exposing the blades. The box says that Farberware licensed their name to this company that made it. The box says they'll replace it if I paid to send it to them. There is no website, no phone number, no email address on the box. Apparently, the name Farberware is now meaningless.
I would give Farberware 1/2 star if I could. I have purchased many coffee pots and cookware through the years. Not only is their customer service poor but they literally do not guarantee most of their products.
My low rating is NOT because of the quality of the product. The quality and durability of these pans is exceptional. I have used the Classic pans for over 20 years. Unfortunately, I have ruined at least three saucepans buy not keeping a close watch on the stove. I would like to request replacements of the 1 quart and 1.5 quart saucepans WITHOUT the lids, as the current lids are still usable. However, Farberware make no provision for such replacements. I must purchase the complete set.
In addition, today while searching for the Classic 1.5 saucepan replacement, to match my other pans, it appears that Farberware no longer produces that size in Classic. So I am left with having to recycle or trash the lids of the pans I ruined as they do not fit any other saucepans. I am pretty sure I am not the only user that has ruined a pan. It would be extremely helpful if Farberware would consider manufacturing replacement saucepans that can be purchased lid-free. Thank you.
The look is great, easy to clean inside and out. Cook times are perfect at every level choice. I never have to reset the timer to finish cooking anything! Wish I had bought this microwave a long time ago.
I recently purchased model number FMO11AHTPLU, 1.1 cubic ft. Fits large dinner plate. Light inside, good control panel! Easy to use, great functions. Actually so far, one of the best micros I have gotten (a lot, cause I got first one in early 70s). Very good price for all it does and the size. I purchased at Kohl's. I will update, if it does not live up to what I expect.
