It may be a lifetime warranty - but the warranty is USELESS!!!!!!!!!!! I have a chip in the lid of my stockpot. I called the company to see how i can get this either repaired or replaced. The company policy is that they DO NOT REPLACE LIDS. If I need to have it replaced I have to send the lid and stockpot back to the company oat my cost and if they decide that it is my fault they will trash the stockpot and lid. First of all - the shipping for that item would be around $40 or more. Why in the world would they need the pot when it is just the lid? I talked to 2 customer service reps plus their supervisors about this. I was told the same thing - we do not replace lids!!! This is the most REDICULOUS company policy that I have ever heard of, especially since the items that they sell are so completely overpriced!!!! I am willing to pay for quality, however, the quality of this product and their customer service is totally unacceptable!!!!!!!!
