Original review posted by user Apr 21

I purchased the Wolfgang Puck Bistro Set. I had this set for about fifteen years. Today was making a fried egg for my 3 year old and as I lifted the glass lid the glass exploded. I have glass everywhere. I'm very upset as I can no longer use any of his glass lids now. The only thing left from the lid is the steel knob and the steel ring. Also, I am extremely lucky that my son was not in the kitchen when this happen.

These glass lids are very dangerous and need to be fix as soon as possible. Sadly, I do not have the packing slip due to an item purchased so long ago. However, I feel that something should be done.

I will be throwing out all of the glass lids today. Items purchased on HSN.

Thank you

Looks as if the lid being used is oversized for the pan it's covering. What most likely happened is you put the cold lid on the hot pan and instead of the metal rim underneath the glass making contact with the hot pan the glass did causing it to shatter. This is user error, not the manufacturers fault.

That may be the case. I thought of that however, explain the many who used the same product with the exact same size lid and the same thing happened to them? Most glass lids have a little vent pinhole that prevents this explosion. I just would like people to be aware even if I placed a larger lid for a second to cover the pan. Its Dangerous regardless of size. Thank you for your comment.

tension in the glass due to overheating from escaping heat on the sides. Clearly an user error .... take responsibility for your actions and don't blame someone else.

Clearly, you just like to argue. Answer the question. Well, no you can't.
