In my family it’s important to have quality kitchenware, including cookware that comes with a lifetime warranty. Why? Because we want products that last. Also, we want to support companies that will stand behind the products they sell.
It’s the reason that I’ve covered this notion of lifetime warranties so much on this blog. That includes with these posts:
- Holiday Gifts of Products Guaranteed for Life
- 32 Product with Lifetime Warranties on Amazon
- Outdoor Gear Companies with a Lifetime Warranty
- Lifetime Warranty Luggage, Backpacks and Book Bags
Why write about lifetime warranty cookware
We cook a lot in our house. Well, my husband cooks a lot in our house. It’s the benefit of marrying someone who was raised by Italian immigrants. He knows his way around the kitchen.
In addition, with prices on the rise, you definitely want to invest in cookware (and other items in your life) that come with a lifetime warranty or at least a limited lifetime guarantee. That way if something happens to the product, you know the company will fix, repair or replace the item that they warranted.
This is especially true with cookware and kitchenware. These items get used and hard. They’re subject to heat, cold, water and even dropping. You want to know that they’ll stand up during everyday use. That’s why I’ve decided to dedicate this entire blog post to quality kitchenware and cookware with that aforementioned lifetime warranty.

This is a list of kitchenware and cookware with some sort of warranty or guarantee. It’s presented here in alphabetical order for ease of reading.
Then, after this bulleted list, you’ll find more extensive descriptions of the cookware these brands sell. Finally, as promised, all come with some sort of lifetime warranty.

This upscale cookware brand stands behind its product from the date of purchase. All-Clad promises to repair or replace any item found defective in material, construction, or workmanship under normal use and following care instructions. All-Clad even warrants its non-stick coating on pans with a lifetime guarantee.
You can purchase All-Clad products at stores like Bed Bath and Beyond. Plus, when you register for All-Clad at Bed Bath and Beyond, you can qualify for a free gift from All-Clad.
Known for its non-stick pans made of hard-anodized metal, Anolon Cookware is free from chemicals and other toxins that you might associate with non-stick cookware and pans. In addition, Anolon Cookware understands that “cookware is an investment. That’s why we back our pans for life. Any issues? Our support team is ready to assist.”
Therefore, it has the lifetime warranty that cooks want when spending their hard-earned money on kitchen essentials. So, where can you find Anolon Cookware? Most major retailers, including Bed, Bath and Beyond.
Calphalon sells all kinds of cookware with a lifetime warranty. This includes baking sheets, muffin tins and various bakeware necessities.
Also, Calphalon has a complete line of cookware of pots and pans. It also sells non-stick pans and knives, among other kitchen necessities. Here is a link to the Calphalon warranty page that explains exactly how it works.
You can buy Calphalon cookware at many popular retailers including:
I have a friend whose son put himself through college by selling Cutco Knives. These are some pretty impressive knives with a lifetime warranty.
Here is how Cutco describes its “Forever Guarantee”:
“If at any time you are not satisfied with the performance of your Cutco product we’ll make it right. Whether you made the initial purchase or you received Cutco as a gift, it’s our guarantee that your Cutco products will perform like new. Forever.”
Of course, you can buy Cutco Knives direct from someone like my friend’s son, or you can shop for Cutco Knives on Amazon.
Food Network Cookware
It appears that you can buy Food Network Cookware exclusively at Kohl’s. And this cookware comes with a lifetime guarantee.
“Food Network is dedicated to producing a trusted brand of cookware. These pans are manufactured and inspected to ensure the highest quality standards. They are guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal household use for the lifetime of the cookware.”
More so cooking tools than cookware, per se, Henckels makes high quality cutlery sets and kitchen accessories.
An excerpt from the lifetime warranty that covers the Henckels knife guarantee:
“You will be pleased to know that all of our products are fully guaranteed against defects in materials and / or craftsmanship. The warranty does not cover wood products, such as knife handles, wear from normal use, or any damage resulting from use other than the intended purpose of the item.”
Therefore, this company may just offer the best chef knife set for the money. Finally, you’ll find that Henckels has an extensive home and kitchen store on Amazon.
Le Creuset Cookware
In case you didn’t know, Le Creuset sells cast iron cookware with an enamel covering. As a Fiestaware aficionado, I love that Le Creuset pots come in all kinds of bright colors. In our kitchen we have them in orange, blue and red.
This maker of high-end cookware and other kitchen products stands behind its products. Technically, Le Creuset offers a limited lifetime guarantee for 10 years. Even so, that’s pretty generous.
However, if you’re like me, you’ll never need to take advantage of that warranty. That’s because this cookware–which includes frying pans, skillets and Dutch ovens–holds up over time. In fact, all of Le Creuset cookware we own was handed down to us after an older relative died. It’s still in perfect condition.
You can purchase Le Creuset cookware at the following retailers:
Only certain items that Pampered Chef sells have lifetime warranties. How do you know which of these products they are?
Well, there are six categories of Pampered Chef cookware and other goods that have a lifetime guarantee. Here they are and what to look for so you know that they qualify.
Lifetime Warranty Pampered Chef Cookware
- Professional Cookware: says “Professional cookware” on bottom of pan
- Executive Cookware: has gray-colored silicone handles
- Stainless Steel Cookware: is stainless steel inside and outside of the pan
- Non-Stick Cookware: has a detachable handle
- Stainless Steel Non-Stick Cookware: pan is black non-stick on the inside and stainless steel on the outside
- Cast-iron cookware: is cast iron throughout
Outside of home parties, you can buy Pampered Chef products on Amazon.
Corelle Brands, which owns Revere cookware, has two different warranties for Revere products. Both are considered to be limited lifetime warranties.
One covers Revere stainless steel cookware and roaster items. The other covers Revere tempered glass cookware tops. Here’s what you need to know.
With regards to the cookware and roaster items:
“Corelle Brands LLC will replace, or exchange for product of equal value (at Corelle Brands’s option) any Revere stainless steel cookware/roaster item which is defective in material or workmanship for 25 years from date of purchase when used under normal household conditions.”
And for the tempered glass cookware tops, the warranty is for 10 years, and is limited to one kind of breakage:
“Corelle Brands LLC will replace or exchange for products of equal value (at Corelle Brands’s option) any tempered glass cover, which breaks from heat within ten years from the date of purchase.”
Keep in mind, though, that since 2019, Corelle has been phasing out the Revere Ware brand of cookware. So you can’t buy new and eventually this brand will be all but gone from kitchens everywhere. However, if you still own Revere Ware, this is good information to have about what warranties still exist.
When it comes to Wusthof Knives, they “are guaranteed to be free of defects in material and/or craftsmanship.”
Another knife brand with a lifetime warranty, Zwilling will stand behind all of the knives that it sells.
