Food Network Food Network Magazine Missing recipe section

I called to try to find the missing cauliflower weekend cooking section in the January/February 2020 I purchased. The person at the 800 number did not speak clear English at all and since I had no subscription could not assist me at all. Online the section doesn't even show in the recipes - but it is there in the magazine just missing. I want the cauliflower steaks with caper sauce and cauliflower hummus. Neither come up on your website. and I tried calling again to no avail. What a joke. I had thought to get a subscription but I don't think so.

Food Network 3 piece nesting bowl set

I purchased the 3 piece nesting bowls and lids from Kohl's about 5 months ago. After placing some veggies in the large blue bowl and putting it in my fridge, I noticed a large hole one side with the pieces on the counter. Can I please get a replacement bowl. The cover is fine as are the other 2bowls. I have no idea how or why the bowl cracked where it did.

Thank you

Food Network ceramic coated cast iron pot

I purchased a food network 6 quart ceramic coated iron pot from kohls last year. I have used silicone utensils. I have only used in oven at 350 degrees. The bottom of the pan is chipping away. I am surprised as I have a generic large ceramic cast iron pot that has lasted 5 years without any problems. I am disappointed as I expected the food network pot to be superior.

Food Network food network pots and pans

I have a full set of FN pots and pans that I have loved for over 10 years, but they are wearing pretty bad and food sticks all the time now. When I purchased them it said they had a lifetime warranty. I've emailed numerous times but never heard back at all. I'd like to see what you can do to correct this and would hope it means a new set. Thank you

Food Network roasting pan

We have had the Food Network roasting pan for a couple of years now and are pleased for the most part

We do have a concern in that each time we clean the pan ( either by hand or in the D/W there is a chalky Sticky residue on the handles

We can clean the residue off but are concerned this may not be safe so have quit using the pan

Any assistance to explain what we are experiencing?

Food Network pot and pan set

They were not a cheap set of pans and I do not want go have to purchase another one because of a bad quality product. I havent even checked the others to see if they are messed up. This was never something I expected from your products.

Food Network compliments and various complaints of programs

The concerns Food Network. I love Ina's Roasted Shrimp shown for New Year's. What a beautiful lead in. The network does so many things right, with a great website and providing great recipes, great Food Truck Race, Restaurant Impossible, Farmhouse Rules, Barefoot Contessa, Trisha's Southern Kitchen, Iron Chef, Food Network Stars and some others, even Undercover Diners, that it blows my mind when it does other things in a totally opposite direction. Like why, why, why does DDD get so much air time when you have much better shows to give time to? What happened to Damaris Phillips' show? She has much more personality and she actually cooks. And I would much rather see the shows I mentioned than Fieri, Giada, Rachel Ray, and definitely can't stand Halloween Wars and Cake Wars. Those shows are a total waste of air time. I would love to see Cupcake Wars brought back, or even reruns. Like I stated, you do a lot of great things, and I learn from them, so those are the things I prefer to see. FN has long been a favorite of mine but I find myself watching it less and less. Thank you.

Food Network food network whistling tea kettle

Today 11/7/2019 while boiling water in our food network tea pot (red), we started to smell plastic burning. Here it was the handle of the tea pot burning and melting. Now our home stinks of plastic burnt smell! Not sure why this has happen but guessing I will be looking for a new teapot. Pretty sure it is not safe to drink from. Would like to know why this would happen or be caused by since this has never happened before. I would like to have my tea pot replaced and not have to put out money or time looking for a tea pot that fits my kitchen.

Food Network unwanted host

Please stop ruining specials by making Giada a host. You have now added her to the thanksgiving challenge which I will also avoid watching. She is a phony and so annoying that it is just difficult to watch anything shes on. Its very disappointing as I watch the food channel often but not if she is on it. Please listen to your viewers and stop making her the host of a show. You will lose long time watchers if we cant watch the seasonal shows without putting up with her.

Has anyone told giada she's not interviewing for fredricks of hollywood and that this is a cooking show. She needs to keep her trashy lifestyle out of food networks
limelight. I have been a long time viewer, since it first aired actually, but during holiday viewing every one of my guests, all 12 agreed she has changed the opinion of many who watch. Maybe she needs to interview with playboy, it's the right fit for both personality and """ attire """"" !

Food Network cake wars host

I have been addicated to cake wars. I loved Halloween Wars and have now started watching the Christmas episodes. However the host, Johnathon, annoys me to no end. Everytime I see his over the top drama and ridiculous comedy I cringe. I think a better fit for him would be a children's show. I watched some older episodes with the first host and enjoyed those seasons much more. I love the show but don't understand why you chose to go in the direction you did with the corny jokes and horrible acting.

Food Network judges

I really like watching the Food Network. With that being said I'm really tired of Carla Hall, Zac Young and Jason Smith judging. They act so stupid. I know that there is more chefs out there that y'all can get to judge. I was born and raised in the south and trust me we don't talk like Jason Smith. So he won a baking competition and now he is an expert. Please get different judges.

Food Network 10 piece ceramic coated cookware

We bought the food network 10 pc. ceramic cookware set from Kohls in Grand Blanc Mi.
Order # was [protected].
The first mistake was mine, I didn't read that the set was hand wash only and I washed the 5 quart i the dishwasher and it discolored the bottom. This I could put up with. The second thing was the large frying pan. I fried some fish in it, after I washed it, in the sink, using Dawn liquid, the inside bottom of the pan has a discoloring over most of it. the third was the small sauce pan has a loose handle. It looks like one of the fasteners was not set right.
I feel that with this many problems, it is only going to get worse and I would like a full refund.

The total I paid, after my coupon and discount was $67.00

Food Network halloween wars

Sending trio of terroir home was a complete and utter joke. The team with Santa clause had one sugar light hanging in the background and a half finished Santa! You sent home the one team that didn't use Santa in the display (they used Jack Frost showing some creativity) and defied freaking GRAVITY! You loved the tasting element and all their work was cohesive. I'm done with this show, each year it gets worse and you pick the team with the least amount of work to win... is it rigged? I truly believe it is! Job not well done :(

That may be true and I agree, maybe adding more movement to the kids would have created a better story line, but the piece as a whole was more complete than buttercream beasts don’t you think? Even if they didn’t go home they did not earn the win there what so ever, the other did that had the krampus carving was amazing and they had a story...not just Santa with a clown face eating candy. In my opinion it just wasn’t as strong as their other pieces, which is why I’m confused about how they managed to win that one?

Food Network bad programming

When is food network going to wake-up! Jeez... How many complaints do you need! Of course now they are owned by discovery so even more politically correct than before. It is sickening. The network is supposed to be about "food"... Not the worst cooks of america; not food truck race, not trisha's horrible southern cooking, not giada and her yoga party and the list goes on including the horrible show the kitchen. We want to see real food, good food, food we can make and recipes that actually work. Some of giada is okay & brunch @ bobby's as well as ina garten and some of valerie's stuff but the rest of this garbage. How disgraceful with all these competition shows all the food that is wasted, ruined! It is truly shameful. None of us want to watch these stupid shows. Bring back food network to the old days where we can learn about food, actually see beautiful food being made etc... Thank god sunny anderson lost some of her voice today! Still didn't keep her quiet! All she did was blab. And these "cutsie" recipes from katie lee. Yuk... With the exception of the roasted veggies it all sucked. And how they boost each others' egos with the o"omg never tasted anything so good." lol... It is annoying. Please get some shows about real cooking, real food and stop this politically correct nonsense with the cake wars with same sex couples. Seriously... What does that have to do with food? Huh?

Food Network halloween wars

Just finished the show "Halloween Wars" and would like the say the winners did not deserve it! The opposing team clearly had the better ideas and execution and the judges even said that their food was the best they'd had all season! While they said that the winners food was the worst they had received from the group throughout the competition! Unbelievable! One of the members of the undeserving winning team had a sore throat and could not talk and he also threw a fit when he broke one of his pieces and proceeded to break even more! Like a child! I believe the judges felt bad for him and cut him some slack on his disgusting dessert! Clearly the opposing team was robbed of the money that should have been theirs and I am not happy with it.

Food Network 10 piece cookware set

Hi Bobby! My name is Bonnie, and I live in Michigan. 3 years ago I was given your 10 piece cookware set for Christmas..Sadly, the 10 inch and 8 inch pans are peeling. I don't have any kids, it's just me and my husband, so we only use wooden spoons on the pans. I enclosed pictures of the pans and ME! Can I please get a replacement 10" and 8" pan? Thank you ❤

Food Network chopped/food truck race

I simply want to say that I will no longer be watching Chopped and the Food Truck Race. Contestants are given way too much face time. It is downright annoying. Also on Chopped, the show went downhill for me when you allowed the judges to converse with the chefs. I watched to see cooking, not talking. These once great shows are no longer enjoyable to watch. So very sorry to see good shows ruined.
