I don't mean to prolong this discussion, but Rich asked a legitimate
question. If this stuff is so good why doesn't every cookware manufacture
make their own version and sell it through conventional channels? The
question that I have yet to be answered is just another version of Rick's
question. I still don't understand why the "waterless" cookware that is SS
with various layered of aluminum and cooper sandwiched between, is any
different than say All-Clad or Kitchenaid cookware. Why don't these
manufactures claim that their cookware is also waterless and will yield more
nutritious food? So far all you have addressed is why this stuff costs so
much when it is sold in a multi-level marketing scheme vs. over the
internet. I accept your explanation on that matter. I just haven't seen
anyone address why this stuff is any more waterless than any other multi-ply
SS cookware.
