The Granitrock Pan Set is a collection of granite cookware available in a 10, 15, or 20-piece set. These pans are advertised as being no-stick, no-scratch items which are easy to use and clean. According to the manufacturer, you can cook anything in this pan, including melted candy, and it won't stick to the surface. In addition, the pans are supposed to be so safe for metal utensils that you can cut a juicy steak in one of them and it still won't leave a scratch.
The cost of Granitrock Pan Set is $149.95 and the shipping is FREE!

Granitrock Pans are made of a triple layer of very durable granite rock, and they also include titanium. These high-quality materials are so tough that the manufacturer claims they can withstand anything, including a hammer busting apart a big rock inside one of the pans.
The granite rock is supposed to be such an incredible material that you can cook in these pans and absolutely nothing will stick to them - not melted cheese, chocolate, candy, or anything else. In addition, the claim is that the granite rock is also impossible to scratch. You can use a metal spatula with these pans freely and they are supposed to stay scratch-free.
These pans are oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and 260 degrees Celsius. You can use them for baking or cooking a meal inside the oven and on the stovetop. This is a nice feature because it makes the pans dual purpose, and that adds value.
The surface of the pan has a layer of aluminum for high heat conductivity. They have been pressed from a solid aluminum disk and then given three layers of a titanium coating. This has the additional benefit of ensuring that the heating on the surface of the pan is evenly distributed.
The manufacturer is offering a 90-day money-back guarantee on this product, which is higher than most companies give on their products. It indicates that the company has a high degree of confidence in the pans. There are no details about this under the return policy on the website, however, so it's not clear whether the pans have to be returned unopened or not.
The manufacturer makes a point of mentioning that the pans are PFOA-free. Since this chemical is often used in the making of Teflon pans, it's nice to get a guarantee that you aren't going to be exposed to chemicals. However, in truth, most of this chemical is probably eliminated through the heat of the process of making the pan.
Even though Granitrock Pans are made of solid materials like granite rock and titanium, they are still extremely lightweight. It's always more pleasant not to have to lug a heavy pan around the kitchen, and if it falls on your foot you may not break a toe!
These pans are supposed to be safe for any metal utensil, from a metal spatula to a fork and a sharp knife. You can test out this contention yourself by cutting a piece of meat inside one of the pans or frying an egg using a metal spatula you scrape along the bottom.
These pans are fine to be cleaned in the dishwasher. According to the claims of the company, however, there should not be anything on the pan to clean since nothing sticks to them. You are supposed to be able to basically just give this pan one wipe and it should be clean. If you want the pan extra clean and sterilized, you can also put it in the dishwasher.
Due to this being a no-stick pan, you don't have to use any oil or butter on the surface to prevent sticking. This makes cooking easier, and also saves you a few calories. Oil and butter have a very high caloric content.
These pans are very nice-looking, and the granite surface is quite attractive to look at. They look like they're more expensive than they actually are.
The pans are offered on the manufacturer's website in a set of either 10, 15, or 20 pieces. These pan sets are priced reasonable, especially when you calculate what one individual pan costs. In addition, the company gives you the option of making 5 monthly payments if you can't afford to pay for the entire set at once. Finally, the manufacturer pays for the shipping costs on these sets.
Unfortunately, several independent reviews of one of the Granitrock Pans showed clearly that they do, indeed, stick. The pans don't stick terribly, these are still really good pans, but they don't do what the manufacturer advertises. They do require that you melt some butter or put some oil on them. It's a shame because this dishonesty lowers your trust in the manufacturer when this is actually a good product. They simply should have been more up-front about its features.
Another advertised point about these pans is that you can't scratch them. You are supposed to be able to scrape anything on them and not do any damage to the surface. However, again, Granitrock Pans just don't hold up to the test. Many reviewers tested this out and concluded that the pans certainly do scratch. Actually, the surface of the pan seems to serve as a bit of camouflage for small scratches.
While they aren't terrible to clean, it's not as easy as advertised. As mentioned, these pans do stick, so they aren't as easy to clean as stated by the company. You do sometimes have to scrub to get food off them.
The website offers customers the option of purchasing a Granitrock Pan Set of 10, 15 or 20 pieces. However, at the top of the website and in the infomercial the discussion is only about one pan. There is no option on the official website to buy one individual pan, although you can find them for sale on other online retail sites. This is a little bit sneaky of the manufacturer.
There's no concrete evidence, but the handle on these pans look like metal. They also look like they may get hot when you're cooking and be difficult to grab.
The biggest issue with this product is that the manufacturer is making claims that are beyond what it can actually do. They would be better off being honest about a decent product.
