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 (23602)
You might try United Cookware. They advertise replacement handles for Future Craft cookware.
I hope they can help you.

Handles for Wonderware cookware
December 29, 2012
I have had my wonderware cookware for 55 years and it is the best cookware I have ever used but the handles are starting to break and I would like to know if anyone knows where I can purchase these handles. I do not want to have to buy the inferior products they are making today. Thanks waiting to hear an answer
Laura - Canada (23087)
After 55 years, you sure got your money's worth from your cookware. Wonderware is owned by Regal Ware. Check their parts page under Wonderware to find a list of handles available.
You can also try a local repair shop that may have generic handles.
Lids to my Seal-O-Matic pots

Any way of purchasing these lids and possibly some handles?
Frances - USA (23076)
Seal-O-Matic is owned by Regal Ware. Check their Replacement page for Seal-O-Matic. You can also call their customer service.
Additional resource on diabetes
December 19, 2012
My name is Lily and I'm a freelance health writer. I was recently involved with writing a number of guides and I thought this one would be of interest www.kwikmed.org/understanding-diabetes/ covering everything from the basic information to popular blogs and resources in the diabetes world.
I noticed that you have a great set of resources on your site on a similar theme:
www.school-for-champions.com/health/fleming_weight_diabetes.htm (I noticed the link to www.diabetes.org/home.jsp was broken while I was on the page by the way - they seem to have just moved that content).
As my sister was recently diagnosed with diabetes, I think the factsheet I worked on contains a lot of useful information and more than warrants inclusion as a resource on your site and as one of the writers I would love to see it get a mention while you're updating that page. If you would, however, prefer to have some content to go along with featuring the factsheet on your site please do just let me know and it would be a pleasure to get something written up and sent over to you on any diabetes or other health topic of your choosing and at no cost to you.
ps don't worry - you aren't on a mailing list and I won't contact you again if you aren't interested but I will get back to you right away if you are :)
Lily - United Kingdom (23073)
Thanks for providing me with an additional resource on diabetes. I added the link to Lose Weight to Decrease Your Risk of Diabetes and Health Resources.
Also thanks for reported the broken link. I corrected it.
I would be glad to add your factsheet along with credit to you. Also, if you have some material that you have written on the KwikMed site, send me the web address and I will add it to our resources.
What is your opinion on Salad Master?
November 15, 2012
Just wondering what your opinion is about Salad Master Brand cook ware.
Julia - USA (23041)
People who own Salad Master cookware seen to love them. The biggest drawback is the price and the sometimes pressure from salesmen. See Salad Master Opinions for views on the brand.
We've never used the brand, and you probably could get an equivalent set for less money.
Best wishes in making a decision.

I tried your exercise and it worked
September 2, 2012
I tried your exercise, lying on a table (I did it on the sofa) and laying on my left side then my right side.i repeated this several times. Then was nearly nauseous and wondered why i did it. I had to rest for about 15 minutes, then I was cured! I am soppy! Thank you so much! I hope don't wake up with the vertigo again, but at least now I know what to do! Thank you!
- Denmark (22878)
I am glad the technique worked for you. It is tricky to loosen the tiny piece of crystal from your inner ear, but it does seem to work.
Best wishes on not having vertigo again.
Needs Westminister Waterless Cookware handles
September 1, 2012
I own a set of Westminister Waterless Cookware, 3 Ply Stainless which we purchased back in 1966, sold through the Fine Arts, Fine Sterling Company. This cookware was made in the USA but went out of business perhaps in the 1970's.
Like most, we need replacement handles.
Have you any information on this company and who might have what we need? Thanks.
Harold - USA (22876)
The only thing I could suggest is to try a local repair shop or cookware shop that may have generic handles that might fit.
Best wishes in getting your handles replaced.
Handles for Pluramelt Flavor Seal
July 30, 2012
I am looking for handles for Pluramelt Flavor Seal. Is there a brand that's compatible with this? Thanks.
Connie - USA (22813)
I'm sorry but I don't have that information. You might try some repair shop. Often generic handles will work.
Is having sex after an x-ray safe
July 27, 2012
would there be any health infection from having sex immediately after taking X-RAY?
kweku - Ghana (22807)
There is no health risk with having sex after receiving an x-ray.
However, your doctor should make sure your sexual area are covered with shielding when you get the x-ray. This is to prevent possible problems if a child is the result of the sex.
Wants the sound of a hormone
July 13, 2012
I am wondering if you know how to get the sound of a hormone and have it play on a CD for example: melatonin or insulin?
- USA (22780)
I'm not sure I understand what you mean about getting the sound of those items. Do you mean an audio of a lesson on them?
Glasses for a far-sighted person
July 8, 2012
Far sighted person can only see 2m and 25cm . Find the change in near point due to wearing of lenses ?
Zainab - Sri Lanka (22765)
If the person can focus at 25cm, he should be able to read a book without glass and would be considered only mildly far sighted. If the person's focus point was at 2 meters, then everything closer would be blurred. Corrective glasses could bring the near point of focus closer, depending on the strength of the lenses.
I have been x-rayed 3 times per month
June 23, 2012
Hi! I have been x-rayed 3 times per month. Did i exceded the dosage?
- France (22737)
Having three x-rays in a month is not a risk, provided they are regular x-rays. If it was a CT Scan, then you need to use caution.
It is always good to ask your physician before an x-ray.
Best wishes for good health.
