What Would You Like For Mother's Day? FlavorStone Cookware

Background Leading to FlavorStone

Last week my youngest son was on Facebook and decided to click on a video link. Because it was on a friends post he assumed it was safe. Boy was he WRONG! It ended up being a virus, and I spent the following day trying my darnedest to get rid of it. Nothing I did or tried seemed to work so off it went to get fixed by a professional. I'm sure you're wondering what this has to do with Mother's Day. To make a long story short I suppose my son felt a tad bit guilty, (not that he'll ever admit it) and said to me, "I'm going to get you a really nice gift for Mother's Day. When is Mother's Day? What would you like for a gift?"

I was still upset over the computer and growled back at him, "I don't want anything for Mother's Day. It's sometime in May."

Mother's Day

Thinking back to this short conversation with my son got me thinking about some of the things that are on my wish list. I never expect anything for Mother's Day but have to admit it is nice when my boys do buy me a nice gift.

For the most part, my favorite Mother's Days have been spending the day with my family followed by enjoying a meal together that I don't have to cook. Don't get me wrong I love to cook, but every once in a while it is nice when someone else does the cooking.

This is what I'd like for Mother's Day

For anyone that follows me you know how much I love to cook. After seeing this infomercial about FlavorStone cookware, I have to have this. This to some I know would be the worst Mother's Day gift possible, but to me it would be the cats meow.

Reasons Why I Have to Have FlavorStone

  • On your stove-top you can fry, grill, boil and cook a roast without turning on your oven.
  • Because you don't have to use your oven this will be a savings on your electricity or gas bill.
  • You don't have to use any oil or butter when cooking in these pans, so therefore this is a healthier way of cooking.
  • You only use this on a medium burner setting. Again cost saving.
  • Cleanup is a breeze as the food slides out.
  • It is made with a sapphire non-stick surface and apparently nothing will stick to the cookware, even if you happen to burn something.



FlavorStone Is Reasonably Priced

The price of FlavorStone cookware is quite reasonable as far as I'm concerned, as for $165.00 Canadian, you receive a deep pan with a lid, sauté pan, casserole pan, a steamer insert, and as a bonus a Thunderstick. You can upgrade to the deluxe pot set, which gives you a saucepan with lid.

I was quite excited over this product when I saw the infomercial and still am after visiting their website. The main reason I wrote this hub was to let my readers that like cooking know about this product. If you'd like to visit their website and see the product or order a set of cookware for yourself go to: FlavorStone. This is the Canadian site however there is a link to the U.S.A. site there as well.

Is FlavorStone a product that you'd be interested in purchasing?

  • Yes, I'd love new cookware
  • Not right now, but maybe later on down the road
  • No, this stuff looks to good to be true
  • No I prefer using what I currently have

I did see this infomercial, Susan, which is unusual since I usually turn them off immediately, and this cookware seems like a big improvement over the kind of pots and pans currently available. Will have to do my due diligence and let you know what I find.

Jaye, Thank you so much. I did think this cookware was maybe too good to be true and I will go and read the report at consumersearch. I do use stainless right now and will probably end up sticking with it (no pun intended :)).

Thank so much again.

Susan, I don't want to rain on your parade, but you may want to read ConsumerSearch.com's review of so-called "green" non stick cookware before you (or your son) spend money on this cookware. PFOA-free cookware is not necessarily PTFE-free, and PTFE when heated on high heat (and who isn't going to forget and turn up the heat at some time?) emits fumes that will kill a pet bird in the area. What is that chemical doing to humans? You can check out the report I mentioned at this link: http://www.consumersearch.com/cookware/nonstick-co...

While it doesn't include the Flavorstone brand, it reviews others of similar make. This report can help you make an informed decision about cookware that's healthy for your family. I used your link to the Flavorstone website and don't see any reference to "no PTFE", so that concerns me.

While ceramic-coated cast iron isn't totally non-stick, and plain cast iron must be treated to maintain its non-stick properties, I've found these two, along with stainless steel, to be the safest choices for cooking. On the rare occasions when something does stick to stainless steel (usually rice to which I haven't added enough water), a brief soak in soapy hot water completely loosens the stuck-on food.

You can also buy a silicone-coated cookware that is safe and to which food doesn't stick.

I never mind getting a little gift but don't know what I want. I have also been looking at that cookware and wondering if it's as good as they say. If you get it let us know. Voted up and sharing.

Great - you know how much time I spend in the kitchen too... and now I have another thing to add to the "I want" list... I already want one of those spa foot baths, and ice cream maker and a food dehydrator. Sadly, I won't get all of them! But I can still wish - right! :)

Never heard of it Susan! This is a great buying. FlavorStone is better that having a crashed stoned against that virus from your kid's Facebook. How fast time really flies. Oh my! Need to catch up with Mother's day as well. Thanks for sharing!

OMGOSH! I just watched an info-mercial on these, and I told my husband that I just may need to buy one. They are the CAT'S MEOW!! (Were there flames of sapphire coming from your eyes after your son fried the computer? LOL - been there, done that!)

The cookware sounds like something i would like esp. in the summer. The oven heats up the whole house. For Mother's day, I always get a beautiful card from my Son Jack. Cheers

RH, I have stainless with copper bottom cookware now and I doubt that stuff will ever wear out. I had a Teflon set when I was first married. It's long gone. Maybe we could get a 2 for 1 deal :)

This cookware does sound wonderful. I will both look for the commercial and go to the website. Have you read any of the reviews? Are they positive? I will keep my fingers crossed for you and then look for your review of the cookware.

"world peace." LOL. Did anyone see the movie w/Sandra Bullock "Miss Congeniality?" Anyway...I'd like to see all living beings treated with respect; life to be honored and kindness abounding!

I had never heard of this either! I'd love to have some! I really do need new cookware. The last time I bought - I laid like 300 dollars for a 10 or 12 piece set...it was a very good brand and that was like 10 years ago. It's no good now...the Teflon chipped off so I got some good pans with zero Teflon:)

I think it's cool I could roast on the stove top! I want this for mama day too!

I think I have seen this advertised recently. I just bought new cookware not too long ago, so I won't be making any purchase too soon. I enjoyed your hub.

Susan, I never heard of this. Looks quite interesting. You are such a great cook, I am sure you would get great use out of it. Hey, did you want to give me your boys email addresses so I can send hints for you? lol I hope you get ALL you wish for this Mother's Day!
