The handle on one of our pots began feeling a little loose a few weeks ago. On Tuesday, I was washing the dishes, and it just fell off right in my hand. Now, you could expect this from a cheap set of "made in China" pans that you could just return to Walmart, but this was supposedly good quality kitchenware.
I'm going to have to write the manufacturer to complain about the poor quality, and suggest they extend their warranty period to something a little more meaningfull. After all, if you're going to buy something of quality, you'd expect it to last.
So, Mom and Dad, next time you buy a set of Lagostina cookware for someone's wedding present, you should think twice and reconsider your options. For the handle to fall off after only 26 years is simply unacceptable.
