    Food Network18 pic soft knife set bought from kohlns

    I recently bought the 18 pic knife set from kohls the soft set and have used the steak knives once. After washing the knifes I noticed that there are rust spots, little spots of knicks in them. I washed them by hand and am very upset and disappointed that these did not last longer than a week after the money that was spent. I would like to have them replaced or repaired. I expected much better quality for the food network.

        Thats exactly what i was going to write and complain about, although Kohls took it back, i was shocked to say the least. The woman who worked there said good knives should never go in a dish washer, Isaid if they were good there should never been a problem.
        So did you get any response from the Food Net Work?

      Food Networkguy fieri shows

      Hi, can you please stop airing guys fieri's shows for blocks of 12+ hours at a time? Literally no one wants to watch a sexist, homophobe gorge himself on cheeseburgers from 2pm-4am. It would be great to get rid of this tv "personality" all together, but i'm sure that won't happen any time soon. So in the mean time could you just like... Play something different???

        Food Network10" ceramic non stick frying pan

        I received the pan as a Christmas present in 2016. I washed & oiled the interior prior to use & every time I used it as per the instructions. I have never used it to deep fry only to cook eggs, bacon, pancakes. Food has always stuck to the pan. I was able to clean it, but the food left stains that won't come out. I tried cooking pancakes this morning with minimal oil & the very first one stuck to the pan. I am very disappointed. I have other non stick teflon pans that I have had for several years that never stick.

          Food Networkwhat has food network morphed into?

          I remember the first day I watched Food Network! Robin Leach was the host!
          It was 1993 and Donna Hanover (married then to Guliani) was on the network as well as Emeril, some twit named Katy (Not Katie Lee), David Rosengarten and of course they would have old shows with Julia Child. Because I LOVE to cook I loved this show & it focused on FOOD and everything about FOOD.
          In time they added Bobby Flay, Sara Moulten etc...But the whole premise was sharing information about FOOD, RECIPES, NUTRITION, PREPARATION ETC...
          At that time TLC had their share of cooking shows such as Biba, Carlo Middione, Sandra Lee, Julia Child etc...so this was a nice break from those shows. During the late 90's and early 2000's it was stellar, as in all kinds of cuisine, tons of recipes etc... So educational and entertaining. Now let's move ahead! Circa 2017, it's all about game shows, reality TV and let's be honest here when I say that just like the modeling world (no longer bonafide models on covers but photoshopped celerities), all you have to be is a celebrity of some kind and you can cook! Huh? Yep folks, Food Network has become a cartoon of itself. Washed up sitcom stars, country singers, or was once married to a musician, the Next Food Network "Star" (very funny) that they don't know what to do with so they are judges on all these food competition shows! Worst yet is "The Kitchen" which is a combo of a loud obnoxious woman (Sunny Andersen), a pompous chef (Jeffrey Zakarian), A woman who's claim to fame was being married to Billy Joel & decided to put out a cookbook before she dumped him (Katie Lee), A token hispanic (Marcella Villalodid) and then Mr. Goofball annoying (Jeff Mauro) that supposedly knows all about snadwiches. Then we add the "No Kid Hungry" campaign which they have the AUDACITY to run a commercial about just after "Ginormous Food"!!! Seriously, what is WRONG with this channel. It has become a mockery of itself.
          Chopped was and is in its original form a good show. They have ruined it with all the spin-offs. Then they are Beating Bobby Flay, Flay is then helping choose the Food Network Star ( very poorly produced show as it is transparent and boring), then we are AGAIN beating Bobby Flay on Chopped. Then he is judging Chopped, then he is an Iron Chef, and the list goes on.I like Bobby Flay and believe he is an awesome chef but how about a new story line folks! EVERY show on Beat Bobby Flay it is the same thing, he hasn't made it since culinary school...uh oh! He might get beat...uh oh!! Then the celebrity banter about beating him...SNOOZE...so over it. Who cares!
          Now Eddie Jackson is a judge for the Kids Barbecue Championship...and that awful bar-b-que show of his. Again...snooze. Demaris Phillips, another Southern Cook that is mediocre and without charisma. Nancy Fuller a woman in her 60's who has to tell you that she is a "Farm Girl" at heart!! Are they kidding? She was what I believe was the Paula Dean replacement or so they thought. BIG mistake firing Dean, but then FN has this need to be what they believe to be politically correct. The worst is Tricia Yearwood a woman that really is just a poor home cook. Another person who decided she was a chef & put out cookbooks because of her celebrity with old unhealthy family recipes from the 50's and 60's that anyone could find on the back of a Campbell's Mushroom Soup can! Add to that overweight Garth Brooks (her husband) that seems to think he also is a chef with his disgusting creations such as a breakfast bowl with 5, 000 calories made with pork sausage, bacon, Tator Tots, and you guessed it tortellini for a whopping overload of carbohydrates, cholesterol and calories guaranteed to make you gain a few pounds in one meal! Yep...Food Network has come a long way alright and not in a good way either. The need to stay in the ratings trying to compete with the other networks has destroyed what Food Network should of cultivated. Don't get me wrong, there are some good shows still on there like Barefoot Contessa, & I do like Giada and her shows on Italian Tradition and Food; Pioneer Woman (at least she can cook unlike Yearwood), Valerie Bertinelli who is pleasant and a very accomplished cook.
          I like Iron Chef because of the beautiful "FOOD"...you know people what this network is supposed to be about which is food & teaching about food.
          WAKE UP FOOD NETWORK and go back to what made you! Cooks versus Cons WHO CARES AWFUL SHOW...GINORMOUS FOOD which is a ginormous flop with a ginormous guy in this day and age where we are supposed to be taking care of ourselves & so many people are without food.. But hey, No Kid Hungry!! Lol...disgusting it really is. WAKE UP FOOD NETWORK!!! Diners, Drive-ins & Dives...haven't we had enough of Guy stuffing his face. And leave it to FN to then add that awful show with he and his son, Hunter! Lol...just awful. The most insulting were these commercials, you know the ones that were the supposed teasers saying "it's coming the Next Food Network Star" you know like we are ALL on the EDGE of our seats and just can't wait!! Lol...
          I could go on but I won't as there are others on FN that are truly annoying .
          Amanda Frietag, Marilu Henner, Patricia Heaton, Joey Fatone just to name a few. Wish I they would wake up and smell the coffee!!! Just saying people!!!

            Food Networkalex guarnaschelli

            Why the hell is she on tv? I used to watch everything on Food Network until 2 years ago I couldn't stand the network because it kept trying to convince me that Guarnaschelli should be on television. Guarnaschelli belongs on tv as much as raw chicken belongs on pizza. I gave the channel another chance tonight after a two year hiatus, and I totally regret it. Let me know when Guarnaschelli is off the network forever and I'll come back. She is so rude and unlikeable. If you keep insisting on putting her on tv I'll keep insisting on avoiding all your programming.

              Food Networkginormous tv show

              When this show was first announced, I wrote to express my extreme dismay that the food network, which overall tends to espouse a healthy approach to food, and which is so good at showing concern for programs like nokid hungry, would stoop to serve up a program glorifying gluttony, overeating and enormous preparations. But it was broadcast, and now it has been given a second season. This is disgraceful and distasteful. At a time when nearly 200 million people are literally starving in africa, and great numbers of families and children are going hungry here in the united states, for the food network to continue to glorify these restaurants and items which glorify gluttony and unhealthy eating is sinful. If you feel you must do so, then please counter this programming by pledging a considerable amount of money and effort in sending food to those starving in africa and in the united states.

                  I thought the exact same thing when I saw the latest commercial. That man is obese and yet he promotes earring to excess.Plus a few of the shows waste so much food! Stopped watching food network.

                Horrible customer service!!! Sent in for a third time a gift subscription for my daughter. And after the first 2 attempts with my account credited for the renewal, I got yet another incorrect billing — as a renewal and not as a gift. How hard is it to read a typed out card that says: gift to: xxxx from: my name. And, amanda in customer service is very condescending cutting me off. Hey... Customer service... Your job is to listen and not cut off the customer — a preferred and longtime one at that. Do not expect to get a resolution to this, but want others to proceed with caution and triple check everything!!!

                  Foodnetworkwhat happened to foodnetwork?

                  I loved this site in the past but there's nothing left form good old FoodNetwork. I used to watch their shows about how to cook and really enjoyed it and I become really good in cooking. But then most of the good shows were closed and they started to show only stupid reality shows! And the worst part is that they repeat the same episodes like over and over again for months now! I'm officially done with FoodNetwork!!

                      Agree, I use to love to watch food Network, no more. I am sorry but I'm not going to learn how to cook a good meal for my family watching chopped, seriously, who has any of that gross stuff at their house, and cupcake wars, who cares...it goes on and on. Food Network please bring back the format you use to have, shows that really showed us how to make realistic meals!!!

                      Live crabs were recently killed and cooked on an episode of Food Network's "Chopped". A "chef" tore the legs off of a stone crab while it was still alive and then put several of the animals in a pot of room temperature water - the animals would die slowly as the water warmed. The network should be reported to PETA. I won't watch Food Network in the future.

                        Food Networkcondescending hosts

                        I have been a fan of the Food Network for many years. I have never posted public comments but can no longer keep quiet regarding the insulting comments made by some of the cooking shows' hosts. I understand that they were born, or have become, wealthy celebrities living in an alternate universe associating primarily with other wealthy celebrities. However, I would venture to guess that those other wealthy celebrities do not make up the vast majority of their viewers. Latest, and most insulting- Giada de Laurentis commented on her newest "Giada at Home" installment that flat iron and skirt steaks are inexpensive cuts of beef while viewers were shown the $20+ per pound cost of these "inexpensive" items she was purchasing. SERIOUSLY???? News flash: Even on sale at $5.99 per pound in normal grocery stores, they are not inexpensive to to us plain old regular folk. And while I am at it, what is up with the hosts (Ina Garten) telling us to be sure to use "GOOD" ingredients? Do they and the FN producers assume that their fan base, although smart enough to tune in to their programming, are too stupid to know we should not to use "BAD" ingredients? Shame on all involved with these shows and any like them.
