Microwavable coffee cups leaking


February 7, 2014

I do hope you can help me in this hunt for coffee and/or soup mugs.
I have some "Divided Dish" microwavable bowls and coffee mugs that I
have had for at least 20 years now but the "Coffee Mugs" are now cracking around the bottom and are leaking. I have enjoyed them so much and I still use them hoping I will find some soon to replace them.
My thought is "hoping" you still have them or know someone who carries them.
I believe I bought these at a Wal Mart store here in Oklahoma City.
They are Regal Ware products.

Thank you in advance

Some products that are microwave safe will simply wear out from repeated use in a microwave oven. This is probably especially true of a cup that is 20 years old. Newer products resist microwaves much better.

Your best route is to purchase new cups to use in the microwave oven. I am sure you can find some that are inexpensive and work fine.

Best wishes in getting replacements.

Wants to cook healthy in oven


December 16, 2013

I am interested in cooking with waterless cook ware, and do own some. The problem that i am having is that they say that anything can be cooked on top of the stove, and not in the oven. I ordered a cookbook that was recommended and they say the same thing in the front of the book, but do not tell you how. So, how do you cook a whole turkey,a ham, break, cookies or such things. Really, i am not trying to be rude here, but am frustrated. We have to be very careful with what we eat, but maybe if it was cooked correctly, we would not have to worry so much. Thank you for your time and i hope that you can help.
Thanks again,

Bill - USA



The principles of waterless (or minimal water) cooking seem to be aimed at stove-top cooking, especially with vegetables where you don't want the nutrients drained off in water. But the same idea can apply to cooking in the oven.

When cooking a turkey or ham, you can use the standard methods, but it is a good idea to use a cooking thermometer that you stick in to make sure the turkey is sufficiently cooked all the way through.

Are far as cookies go, there are many healthy recipes for them where you can avoid high fat materials such as butter. See our section on Nutrition for ideas on healthy cooking and eating.

Thank you for posting about healthy cooking

I enjoyed reading on your web page. Thank you for posting. I went to my first demo but I could not reason the price.




Thanks for the feedback. Yes, the cost of the cookware is expensive, but some people feel it is worth it.

Praise for Homemaker's Guild cookware


October 26, 2013

I am so thrilled with my Homemaker's Guild cookware. My husband and I bought it right after we were married in 1965 - so my cookware is around 48 years old and still going strong. My daughter is now using it and it continues to perform well. What a product!!




It is fantastic that your cookware has lasted so long and so well. Not many products will last as long.

Also, congratulations on 48 years of marriage.

Bought cookware in 1973 and wants it replaced


August 28, 2013

I bought waterless cookware, china and crystal in 1973 at an In Home Sales Party. The company is no longer. A company replaced my cookware but not the waterless variety. I paid for waterless technology in 1973. I want waterless technology today. How do I get them to replace it with a comparable product? How do I replace my china that has an open stock guarantee if the company no longer exists?

becky - USA



1973 was 40 years ago. Unfortunately, many companies from then no longer exist or no longer make the same products. The same is true with a 1973 television set.

You are very fortunate to get use out of the cookware for so many years. You may need to purchase new cookware and new china.

Best wishes on getting the goods you desire.

Parts for UltraCore electric skillet


June 11, 2013

I have an UltraCore electric skillet made by Ekco Home products, PO Box 6386 Thousand Oaks CA 91359.
You have listed World kitchen and they do not sell anything electric.
I need replacement parts and it has a 50 year warranty.

Cindy - USA



Many of these companies come and go, and I can't follow them all.

EKCO is presently owned by World Kitchen. Try the EKCO website and contact them for information on your warranty.

Good luck on getting replacement parts.

Handles for Future Craft cookware


April 9, 2013

I have a set of Future Craft cookware from the early 80's! I stol use it every day. Needless to say it needs to be refurbished and can use all new hardware. But it is still going strong. I hate to replace it with inferior pots. Do you know who might carry replacement handles and how best to clean up the stainless? Thanks!

Adele - USA



You might try United Cookware. They advertise replacement handles for Future Craft cookware.

I hope they can help you.

Meisterbach is a Dutch company. One website selling their products is Telstar Online. Unfortunately, it is not in English.

Many people are selling the product on eBay. There may be a way to contact them to find out more about the product.

I hope that helps.
