surgical stainless steel cookware
build immunity one meal at a time
For the sake of our
national economy we must do more about preventing
disease. Our health care system is breaking its
back on the rising incidence of obesity, cancer
and diabetes, all preventable through diet and
cookware. Most people and chefs are not aware of
the health hazards of the metal oxides entering
the food when cooking with inferior cookware. What
alarms me is that the pots and pans industry is
unregulated, and remains unregulated in spite of
the results at the University of California at
Berkley that found aluminum in 90% of autopsies of
the dead from Alzheimer's disease in 1997. The
pubic truthfully needs a third party reference to
safe cookware, and I hope our voice will help
guide you best to safety. I was unaware that there
are 80 kinds of stainless steel until March 2009,
when the Salad Master Cookware rep from Niagara
Falls visited my Academy in Richmond Hill and
enlightened me regarding the 316Ti cookware. Now
316Ti is the only metal that a surgeon can put
into our body to repair hip, heart or ears or any
part of the body without the body rejecting it.
As a baby boomer seeking
healthy longevity, I say that surgical stainless
steel cookware is the only cookware to buy.
Surgical stainless steel makes all vegetables
taste so good that children ask for third
helpings. It's the best taste because of superior
nutrition. I hope many crappy companies and crappy
jobs will be lost in this paradigm shift to
excellence and wisdom for healthy longevity. In
August 2010 I met Ron Geyer of Orleans, Ontario
with his Vacuumatic-line cookware. Now I am
pleased to know that there is another company that
sells top of the line surgical stainless steel.
Having bought this Cookware and subsequently five
holistic teaching chefs have it, its lifetime
guarantee of service for the rest of life of the
cookware, not just my life cannot be replaced. But
what I didn't like about Salad Master is that the
company (based in Texas) wouldn't give our chefs a
50% discount - as they did for the Academy.
Subsequently, when Ron approached me with a pot of
surgical stainless cookware from Tennessee, what I
liked best was that all my referrals can get up to
a 61% discount. Go to www.belkraft.com
. Investigate it. And say it comes from me
when you get it.
In my test kitchen, I can
say I prefer the lid of the BelKraft, which has a
3-way whistle vent. Very different from the
tapping sound of Salad Master®. I can turn a knob
and the whistle stops. With Salad Master I either
lower the heat or remove from heat so the noise
stops. With the whistle blower turned off, I can
proceed to simmer soup bones at a low, rolling
boil for hours without a noise. Now quiet cooking
The truth remains. No
cookware can pass the Baking Soda Test except
surgical stainless steel. Please do this test to
find out for yourself how your cookware
contaminates your food. Simply take a teaspoon of
baking soda and boil it in a cup of water for five
minutes using in any pot you wish to test. Now
taste that water. Now you will understand many
things, such as you might not be such a bad cook
yourself if you had the right cookware. Glass and
enamel cookware, iron and all non-surgical
stainless steel tastes poisonous because it is
I am a firm believer in the
benefits of cooking in quality surgical stainless
steel waterless cookware. Many features make
surgical stainless steel cookware unique and
superior to all other metals and surfaces used to
cook food. I love the true 7-ply thickness of
surgical stainless steel cookware. I can now bake
cake on the stove top while saving lots of money
by not using the oven. It makes the oven obsolete.
I cooked my turkey on the stovetop. Food can cook
even in the fridge thanks to that seven-ply
protective surface on the top, bottom, and all
around the sides.
The Vacuumatic method of
waterless-cooking takes cooking to a whole new
level. The vacuum vapor allows food to cook at
much lower temperatures so we chefs can retain 93%
of the vitamins and minerals in foods. Now this is
truly holistic cooking. The point is vacuum-seal
holds the air tight and hot while the pot is off
the stove or in the fridge cooking. Just the right
temperature is maintained effortlessly inside the
pot without destroying color or nutrients because
of Vacuumatic seal. It really cuts down heating
bills, say UBC studies. And BelKraft is the most
equitable investment for everybody.
Years ago, the quality of the dutch oven in my cookware probably saved my house from being destroyed by fire. I had left beans on full heat and covered for over 8 hrs on a ceramic cook top. Some smoke eventually did set off the smoke alarm and the fire dept was called but because the pot was so well sealed and had so many layers of metal, the pan was glowing red but no fire erupted. Some white smoke was all we had. The ceramic cook top shattered as it cooled but the firemen said the pot saved the house as the kitchen would have gone up in flames had the fire not been so well contained.
This stuff is really high quality!
As I indicated, we purchased the cookware in
1965; we had been married for one year. If I
remember correctly it cost us around
$700.00. We got everything you could get at
that time. As far as I'm concerned, it was
the best investment we ever made. The
cookware is still in good shape and has been used
everyday since purchased. The only
issue is the handles. Quite honestly
the handles lasted for many many years.
Probably in the last ten or so have they
begun to need to be replaced, and not all of them,
but the ones used most often. I highly
recommend this product; no matter what the

Ron just wanted you to know that my mom received
the lids and she is delighted that I was able to
find them for her. I have to tell you that
her pots are almost 50 years old. She bought
them from a salesman who went door to door.
They were purchased after she came to Canada
and they are still in perfect condition. The
handles are only just now being replaced only
because of heat exposure on her gas stove.

Thank you, Lucia
Sandy from Prairie
I bought my set while still in high school. My
mother thought I was crazy spending 500.00 on
cookware and linens.
I was recently making Humming Bird food (water,
brown sugar etc.)
The pan was on the burner when my neighbour
called me over to help her with something and I
forgot the pan was on my gas stove.
I came back 2 hours later and the house was full
of black smoke. I crawled under the smoke to
the stove and turned it off. There was a big
bubble of foaming goo on the pan that looked like
a Jiffy Pop bag that was done, but not one drop of
this flammable goo had spilled over.
Where I live it takes about 40 minutes for a
fire truck to reach me. Had I owned any other pan
I would have lost everything. I was also thrilled
to find out that the pan has a warranty coverage
I’m so grateful I invested in quality back then.
It saved my home.
This is not a complaint but
a letter to let you know that after 40 years, my
set of cookware is still just as good as new.
Forty years ago, in 1976, I hosted a “dinner”
party in Beggs, OK for three additional couples.
At the end of the very tasty dinner, all four
couples purchased sets cookware and three booked
dinner parties. As a result of the successful
party, I received additional pieces, including
soup pot, bake ware, electric fry pan, and a huge
stainless steel bowl. I still use every piece of
that cookware today. It has been packed up and
traveled to five more addresses. Unfortunately, I
do not remember the name of the person who sold us
the cookware nor do I have any of the paperwork. I
am just letting you know that you sell a quality
product. At the time, we thought it was expensive
but when you figure it has lasted 40 years and
still going strong, it was cheap.

The cookware really is amazing.
Not only can I notice the increased mineral uptake
as I detoxify on the cellular level regularly, but
what I noticed in a few days and realize more
importantly, is that I can notice an even greater
decrease in heavy metals in my system. I have a
sensitive system. My mental clarity has really
increased hence a lot of great things happening.
Energy, sleep. I wasn't looking for this but
it happened. Thanks.
Brad Peters, Toronto Ontario
Received the handles the other day and they were a
perfect match, including the screws. I removed the
old ones, cleaned it up a bit and now it looks
like a brand new pan. I can’t thank you and your
team enough for still having these parts available
for a pan that’s 43 years old. Not many companies
can do what you just did for us.
Sincere thanks again.

When I was 18 I purchased
my Belkraft cookware… which by the way was
32 years ago & it is still the only set I have
ever owned. I take good care of it and it
still looks as if it's about a year old!
Thank You Shellie
I have had my set for 51 years. I
also bought 2 sets for each daughter.
We absolutely love this cookware

Glad to have found you.
We have a full set of
Belkraft stainless steel waterless cook ware that
we purchased in late 1971 just prior to our
marriage . We have used it almost daily and have
been thoroughly pleased, one of the best purchases
we ever made . We still use it regularly and it's
still in good shape.
Thank you very much for
helping me with purchasing set of knives and
Cookware! I am very pleased with the service you
provided, with the price, and your knowledge
about the products. The transaction went very
smooth and I received my purchase very fast. I
would also like to thank you for the help with
the registration of the purchased products.
I will definitely
recommend your site and you, personally, to my
friends and family.
thank you for the tracking

Back in 1975 we were a
young couple just starting out trying to live on a
buck sargent's pay when this door to door salesman
came to our apartment selling pots and pans. My
husband invited him in and we listened to his
sales pitch. I was furious with my husband when he
spent $1000.00 of our savings to buy a set of the
surgical steel, stackable cookware! I did at least
get to decide if the bottom would be copper or
plain. I hate polishing copper so we went with
plain. It was a huge set of cookware. It even came
with three graduated mixing bowls and cake pans!
36 years later there is not
a day that goes by that I am not exceptionally
glad that my husband was "suckered into" buying
that cookware from a door to door salesman. Over
the years people have permanently borrowed some of
the set, much to my chagrin, and a few pot handles
and lid handles needed to be screwed back on tight
but I have loved that cookware since day one. I
burned plenty of meals in my day, and one time it
was so bad that everyone was sure I would have to
throw the pot away. It took a good week of soaking
and scrubbing but that pot looks better than a lot
of the new pots my kids have. I bet a lot of other
cookware manufacturers hated you in the day!
Best investment we ever
I have owned my cookware
since I was 18 and love it. It was 1966. I
wondered if I could get a catalog to order pieces
direct from you. Also I do not have an instruction
book so I may never have used it correctly.
But it is still wonderful.
Thank You for your time.

Dear Ron, I was searching
the web for Vollrath Vacumatic cookware trying to
locate handles for a few of my pots and called the
number listed. I want to thank you for your
professional help. My parents bought my pots May
of 1965 and they are still as nice as the day I
first used them.
I have owned
my vacumatic cookware for 43 years. I have
tried varies other cookware over these years
(including the fancy Frency stuff) and nothing
compares. When I was in law school (nights),
I only had the short time between work and school
to prepare dinner for myself and my
daughter. Happily, I put rice in the pot,
chicken on top, and broccoli (or other vegetable)
on top: presto, dinner within 30
minutes! When I was first paying for my
cookware, my brother even made payments for me
when I was unemployed. I was reminded
tonight of the great value of this product when I
cooked very tender beef/tomato sauce stovetop in
less than half the time it might have taken
otherwise. Thank you for continuing manufacture of
this wonderful product. I've tried to spread
the word, but people really don't believe what a
wonderful product this it.
In 1967 my Mother
started monthly payments on what I believe to
be a "23 Piece Master Chef Set" (Vacumatic is
stamped on the bottom). I got married in
December of that year and as part of my wedding
gifts she gave me the set -- and the monthly
payment book. At the time, it seemed like a
lot of money to pay for pots and pans. Over
time I've learned what a bargain I got!
After 42 years of continual use they still serve
us well. I do need one or two repairs to
handles and will work on getting those fixed
through this site soon. The only piece that
I've lost over the years is my smallest
saucepan. When my daughter moved away to her
own home and was setting up her kitchen she
asked if she could have that to take with
her. It hurt to let it go, but I did give
in. I still miss it! May have to check
to see if that one piece can be purchased to make
my set complete again. Thanks for a quality
Ron, I received the pans
this afternoon! I am so happy! They
are beautiful. I have them all washed up and
ready to go. Unfortunately I work evenings
so I was unable to use them. I was so
excited to get them. Thank you again!
They look so similar to what I already have.
The handle on the lids have the same
look with the exception of being a little
higher to accommodate the whistle. I can't
wait to try it! I didn't expect them so
I am looking for a replacement set for the
Vollrath pots and pans which we purchased in the
mid 70s and have used extensively since then.
The quality and workmanship were exceptional
so we would like to find the successors to that
line. Any information and pricing which you
can provide on the 11 Piece set would be greatly
purchased a set of Vacumatic pots many years ago.
First of all let me say that I thought she was
crazy for spending that much for cookware at the
time, however after 25 years I realize you really
do get what you pay for.
I would not hesitate to recommend or purchase more
Belkraft products in future.
the set in 1964! I love my waterless
cookware and have used it everyday since the pots
pans have been great! If I got out the SST
polish the pans would look new (except the handles
do show wear and are no longer shiny).
My name is Brenda & I bought your waterless
cookware from a door to door salesman in
Edmonton Alberta in 1982. At that time I was
single & living with room mates who thought
that I was crazy to spend that much money on
cookware ($1000.00, a lot of money at that
time). Today 26 years later I am married
& use my cookware regularly. It pretty
much looks the same as the day I bought it &
works beautifully! I also got a set of
crystal as a "gift with purchase" & still
have the whole set & use it too! I was
pleasantly surprised to find your website &
see that BelKraft was still in business, because
of the quality of the cookware I have never
needed to contact the company so have never
looked for you before. I was cleaning out
some old files & found the paperwork
& decided to see if your company was still
around & here you are! I just wanted
to let you know that I for one am a happy
customer & wouldn't hesitate to recommend
your product to friends!

I bought my set 35 years
ago, and a few years ago I left some potatoes on
the stove and forgot them. I smelt the smoke a
when I got to the kitchen they were burnt to a
crisp. My husband was sleeping so I wanted to put
the pot outside before the smoke alarm went off.
Without thinking I put the pot down to open the
back patio door and the pot melted the carpet and
stuck to the bottom. I thought the pot would be
done for sure but a friend of mine took it home
and sprayed some WD40 on the bottom and inside.
The carpet popped off and the three inches thick
of burnt potatoes came out in one piece. I was
amazed. The pot still looks like it did before and
I still use it.

your prompt placement of my handle replacement
order, I appreciate it. These really are pans
that are purchased for a lifetime and warrant the
highest recommendation anyone could possibly make.

Dear Sirs, I have had your set of Vacumatic pots
and pans since about 1967. It really does last a
lifetime. The only thing is need is some of the
handles and a top rotating piece that
allows/restricts venting. I'm so happy to discover
you still carry these parts as replacements?
Thanks for your help
with everything. As for that testimonial…
I've owned my Vacumatic
cookware set for 30 years and have often boasted
about having the greatest pots and pans one
could find. However, I never dreamt they
could conceivably avert a near disaster.
One busy Sunday, in a
preoccupied moment, I left the house for 1 and ˝
hours with something cooking on my gas stove in
a Vacumatic 2-quart saucepan. Getting out
of my van on my return home, I could hear the
smoke detectors going off. In fear, I
opened the door expecting flames. Instead,
I could see some smoke, and I could certainly
smell it. Racing in, I found the contents
in the pot burnt to a crisp and smoke rising
from it. Except for charred food around
the inside and some blackness on the outside
bottom, the saucepan itself appeared to be
fine. I have no doubt a lesser quality pot
would have easily burnt through the bottom,
possibly resulting in the handle meeting the
flame and who knows what from there.
I still can't believe
it. Nor can my friends and family when I
show them the saucepan. What a lifesaver!

First purchased in
1972. I still own it and am totally satisfied.
Great product, excellent service and great
My fry pan from 35 years
ago warped and now that I had a new flat glass
type stove top it was spinning. I called BelKraft
and was upset that they didn't replace it for
free. I thought it was covered under the 50year
warranty but the girl said that warping falls
under the “ Full Hazard Warranty”.
Under this warrantee they
only replaced it for half price. The new 7-ply pan
seems to be twice as thick and so far so good. I
suppose I should just be grateful that they're
still around after 35 years.

wise choice so many years ago.

Hi! My name is Kelly
Cattell. I purchased a set of pots and pans 20

comments about the set I purchased. I remember
my mom thinking I was crazy because I purchased
them when I was 17 years old and I put them in
my hope chest. I also chose the set over

37 years ago and has survived 37 years of
marriage and 2 kids and many preparations for

products. This is my 17th order with no regrets.
Good products and good service.
My husband bought the
Vacumatic cookware in 1967 and took it with him
when he divorced his first wife. Boy am I glad I
met him so I could get introduced to Vacumatic.
Love at first sight.
I have finally met a
representative from BelKraft. Didn't think the
company was still out there. I've enjoyed my
products - how they last! Thanks and I'll be a
customer for a long time to come.
Had my Vacumatic pots
for 28 years and still look brand new. Wouldn't
cook without them.
David and Janet Manns
My wife and I have
used the Vacumatic cookware for 38 years and
have been very pleased with their performance.
Recently we have had to replace a few handles

Great products and a good company to deal with.
I bought my Vacumatic
cookware about 31 years ago. It has lasted very
well and still looks like the day I bought it.
I have had my pots

After using these
pots for 39 years they look like new. I would
never change them for any other type of cookware
because everything turns out well each time I
cook. When I bought them at 20, I really
couldn't afford the price - but now I couldn't
afford to do without them. The best!
I bought my cookware
in 1975. They still look like new. They clean up
really well with little effort. Cooking food in
them is great.
Bought my cookware 31
years ago. I loved them so much that when it was
stolen in a break - in, I bought it again. I
also took this opportunity to add to my china.
I bought my cookware

any other products. I love them and I can

buy them when I was young.

I bought my Vacumatic
cookware in 1971. They are great. Ron Geyer
brought me new handle for my pots and pans today
and I told him my story of my eggs. I was
cooking two eggs in one of my pots in water. I
forgot about them and so the water ran out about
a half hour later. I was upstairs getting ready
for work (about 7:00 am) when all of a sudden
there was a big bang in the house. I ran
downstairs and saw that the 2 eggs had literally
jumped out of the pot and exploded into
smithereens - all over the walls, curtains,
stove floor and ceiling. They had literally hit
the ceiling side by side. Considering all this,
my pot is still in great condition! Yea for
I have managed to find
your website by searching on Vacumatic . I
have a set of cookware my parents bought me in
1967 from a local sales lady that came to your
home and performed demonstrations. I have
used my cookware almost every day since then and
they still look great and still have that
"magic" vacuum when the lid is put on
right. The only difficulty is that some
handles need replacing. I live in Chatham
between Windsor and London and would like to
know if there is a vendor close by that I could
take my cookware to be fixed. My cookware
still works great and I don't want to replace
them with a new set. Can you help me
I bought my cookware
and china 40 years ago. Looks brand new - just
had handles replaced.
I began my first
full-time job in 1967 and I purchased (I
believe 1968) the 23 piece set.
I don't remember what I paid, I only remember it
was a large sum of money for pots and pans at
that time. I have been cooking in these
pots for 37 years and they look as good as the
day I bought them. (I'm attaching a
couple of pics).
I am thrilled to find
your website to be able to get a new handle.
Your product is supreme. Back in 1968 I
tried to convince my girlfriend to buy the same
set but she said she couldn't afford it.
Well, at least six sets of pots and pans later
she said she wished she had taken my advice! I
look forward to hearing from you about the
handle and thank you for your time.
A very loyal customer

Well, I must say that I
am more than pleasantly surprised! I
didn't expect that the company would still be
around after so long, and I thought that I'd
take a chance and give Vacumatic a Google.
Ta-da! I purchased my set of cookware in
1981 or 1982, when I was 17 years old. I
have used them with pleasure since then, and
have nothing but good things to say about the
line (if I can ever be an advocate!). What
I am needing is a replacement piece for one of
the saucepan lids, as I can't mend the one I
have any longer. I am tickled just to see that
you are still around! Yay! So, on
that note, I am off to check out the site
further - might need that double boiler...
Hello, Belkraft ....
Here's a great story for you! (Sept.'06)
When my daughter was 2
(in 1964), a door-to-door salesman rang my
doorbell, and pitched your cookware set.
From looking at your website, I believe it was
either a 19- or 23-piece set. If I bought
the cookware, a set of china, service for 8, was
thrown in for free. And if I bought the
completer set (platters, gravy dishes,
sugar/creamer, etc.), matching stainless steel
flatware and crystal (both service for 8) was
thrown in for free. To make a long story
short, I think I paid $23.85 a month for quite a
My daughter now has
the china. The crystal pretty much got
broken. The flatware is missing many
pieces. But that cookware has lasted all
this time, and is only a bit scratched, but I
only had one needed repair - the handle on the
lid to the dutch oven came off and my
brother-in-law had to fix it for me (this was
within the last couple of years). It still
cleans up remarkably well with a little
Scotch-Brite on the inside and bottom, and I
clean the shiny outside with a past of flour and
vinegar and buff to a bright shine.
Needless to say, I
have never regretted my purchase! You guys
make a terrific product, and I expect my
daughter to use it for over 40 years after she
gets it, which I hope will be many years from
So, 40 years after the
fact, I want to thank you for making such a fine
set of cookware. Sincerely, Mikey Kerns, Payson,
I purchased my
Vacumatic cookware forty years ago in Kansas
City MO right after I graduated from TWA flight
attendant school. The gentleman who sold the set
to me said that it was guaranteed for
life. I noted on your web site that you
are still in business and selling pots and pans
that look just like mine.
I would be most amazed and delighted if you
would honor the promise that the handsome young
gentleman salesman made some forty years ago and
replace my small frying pan.
Thank you for your consideration,

I ‘Googled' your company name.
All is well in our Belkraft

Buying my waterless
cookware from Belkraft International nearly 32
years ago was one of the smartest investments
I have ever made. Growing up, I was
always surrounded by the wonderful aroma of
freshly baked bread, steaming robust stews and
soups along with many other wonderful
gastronomical memories that my mother so lovingly
did day after day.
A friend of mine became a
salesman for Belkraft International when I was 18
years old. I invited him over to let him
practice his sales pitch so he could brush-up
on his marketing skills. It was not my
intention to make any such purchase for I was
still just a teenager but the product
sold it self to my mother and I without a blink.
The grand package I
purchased cost me somewhere around $850.00 CAD and
it included 5 saucepans and lids, electric frying
pan, double-boiler pot, steamer and masher along
with the 3 and 6 egg poacher and tongs.
A four piece, 4 setting Pirouette china set
was included as a free bonus. In a blink, 32
years of happily cooking with my
waterless Vacumatic cookware has past
creating some of those same memories for my two
My own girls are now
20 and 23 years of age and I constantly remind
them of the benefits of buying quality
cookware. They also like to spend
time in the kitchen creating scrumptious
dishes to eat. My mother gave me sound
advice 32 years ago and I have the same intentions
for my girls.

"For the first time
as far back as I can remember, I cooked on
normal stainless steel cookware. I just came
back from Orlando to take my boys to see Mickey
Mouse. We rented a room with a kitchen to try
and save money. (Not easy in Orlando) For the
first time I cooked away from home and I am not
used to using anything but 7-ply surgical steel
cookware. After twenty-nine years of selling
quality waterless cookware, I now truly realise
what I did for thousands of people when I helped
them acquire their sets. Just making breakfast
in that warped 1-ply stainless fry pan was a
frustrating experience. I had to use butter to
make pancakes and they were black on the sides
and the middle still needed cooking. I was glad
to get home and away from sticking, burning and
greasy foods. There are a lot of things you can
try to buy cheap, but cookware is definitely not
one of them. The only people paying for our
cookware are the ones who don't have it. If you
would like more info on our sets and how they
can pay for themselves in a few short years go HERE
or call me.
