Wants replacement pots
April 22, 2020
I bought my Prudential waterless cookware in 1965 with a lifetime warranty. I ruined 2 of pots on a glass top stove. How can I find this company to request replacements. The other pieces still look brand new. yes, I have put the large fry pan in the oven no hotter than 350. then i oiled the handles with mineral oil and they still look great! Thank you for your help.
Carol - USA (29451)
It is great that your cookware has lasted so long, and it is too bad you ruin 2 pots.
Apparently, EKCO Prudential is out of business. However, I have seen many pots for sale on eBay and similar sites. Do a Google search on the brand name, and perhaps you can find some replacements.
Best wishes for success in your cooking.

I have had prudential waterless cookware since 1970. Love it. Can I put the frying pan in the oven or will the handles be ruined?
Diana - USA (29402)
It is great that your cookware has lasted so long. However, putting the frying pan in the over could possibly damage the handles. It would be better to use some other type of pan.
Handle broke on waterless pan
March 24, 2020
A handle broke on one of my pans and I need to know how to get another one.
Bob - USA (29393)
Check the list on Waterless Cookware Companies for your brand and replacement. Also look at the Feedback letters to find a possible solution.
Good luck in getting the handle replaced.

Doctors could identify typhoid fever
October 3, 2019
I've read that doctors could identify typhoid fever by a patient odor strongly resembling that of fresh-baked bread. Typhus victims, on the other hand, have breath with a "peculiar musty odor," according to an old encyclopedia I have.
Paula - USA (29206)
Thanks for the information. It is a shame that the old ways of diagnosis have gone by the wayside.
Thermo-Sentinel cookware handles
January 9, 2019
Would you have any information on where I can purchase replacement handles for Thermo Sentinel stainless steel cookware bought in the 70’s
Thanks for your time.
Flo - USA (28909)
It looks like your cookware has lasted a long time. That is great,
I think Thermo-Sentinel was bought out by Vita Craft cookware. You can try their website at Vita Craft or call 1-800-359-3444.
Another possibility is to check your local hardware store or handyman for generic handles.
Best wishes for solving your problem.
Is Camelot cookware dishwasher safe?
September 1, 2018
Can you please tell me if Camelot temp-tone cookware is dishwasher safe. Just remembered that I bought it over 40 years ago and never used it.
Jacquline - USA (28685)
Since the cookware is stainless steel, it should be dishwasher safe. Camelot is now owned by Regal Ware so you can get information from them.
You also can see questins about Camelot from the FixYa site.
40 years! You had better start using the cookware.

My team and I recently created a guide for families/households concerned with making their homes wheelchair accessible, and I thought it would be a helpful addition for your site's visitors if they find themselves in a similar situation.
When I'm not working with homes, I like to help people out with home-related questions, and I found a lot of guides covering this subject were either too thin or incomplete. I wanted to make something comprehensive that addresses every part of the house, inside and out, to show people that wheelchair accessibility is an achievable goal when approached systematically.
Thank you for your time, and please let me know if there's anything I can do on my end to help you out with this.
All the best,
Greg - USA (28660)
Sorry for the delay. I added a link to you page from Health Resources - Special needs - Disabilities.
Best wishes for success in your work.

Looking for recommendations of leading cookware doing parties and recurring help?
John - USA (28489)
You might check with some local stores that sell waterless cookware for referrals concerning cookware parties.
Also, a Google search on "cookware parties" can give a listing for the various brands. I've seen some from cookware salesmen promoting their services, but of course you want someone local.
Best wishes in your efforts.
Doctors not helping health condition
March 12, 2018
I live in a country with wishy washy health protocol and doctors who operate within 'boxes'; not really caring whether patients are healed or get some form of relief; not as my health condition kept deteriorating. My health challenges began with environmental hazard-mold and carbon poisoning. Severe breathing and oxygen deficiency. Only to learn after five years of being treated for symptoms of....that there is no medical protocol for mold and carbon poisoning.I have so many symptoms it is confusing.
One I am sure about is a severe mineral deficiency main one being magnesium which I have been trying to fix on my own. the correct blood test does not exist to test magnesium deficiency.
What do I do? This is my life and I cant give up. After reading and reading and researching I am on a vicious looping cycle of Hyperhidrosis. All the symptoms are there with excruciating vicious cramps crippling me twisting all of me into weird shapes...I see my muscles sinking into pits in my arms hands legs toes..... Pains in head, vertigo, dizziness I have fallen many times - there is damage to my spine....no help THERE IS NO MEDICAL HELP. over the years so many other challenges - glandular etc.
WHAT DO I DO?
Usha - USA (28472)
I am sorry to hear that you are having these health problems. And I agree that there are many doctors who simply "go by the book" and don't really analyse symptoms and possible solutions. This is especially true concerning environmental hazards and poisoning.
I don't think excessive sweating is caused by forms of poisoning. But it might be a side effect. More importantly, you want to regain your health and get relief from your pain.
With many symptoms, you probably have a number of health issues. Note that forms of poisoning can create numerous symptoms.
Try to live as healthy of a lifestyle as possible, and in the meantime look for some doctors or clinics that can help you. Perhaps your doctors can recommend some specialized help, even in some other city.
Best wishes on getting relief and in getting healthy again.
Too many x-rays?
December 26, 2017
I am a 31 year old person and my chest x-ray done by a doctor two times in a month.I want to know that there is any risk or not for my body.
Narendra - India (28367)
Having x-rays two times a month seems excessive unless it is to monitor a fast growing ailment. Ask your doctor if having x-rays twice a month is really necessary.
Being 31 years old, you need to make sure your reproductive organs are protected by lead shielding.
If the x-ray equipment is modern, the radiation is much smaller, and the risk is less. However, it still is best to not have the x-rays unless really necessary.
Best wishes for good health.

Warm bath after overeating
September 30, 2017
Does taking a nice warm bath help stomach aches after overeating?
Eli - USA (28268)
Although a warm batch can relax you, I don't think it does much to relieve stomach aches after overeating.
You should try not to eat too much. A stomach ache should be a warning to you.
Digestive aids can help relieve the stomach discomfort. But they should not be taken all the time.
Best wishes for good stomach health.
Hearing high frequency pitches
August 25, 2017
WHAT COULD BE PUT IN A HUMANS BODY THAT WEEKS MAKE THEN HEAR HI PITCH FREQUENCY'S FEEL IT AND DESTROY THEIR TEETH RAISE INTERNAL BODY TEMPERATURE TO DEADLY TEMPS AND CAUSE HEART CRAMPING TORTURE TERRORISM ACTS ON A MULTIPLE DISABLED WOMAN THAT CAN BE ACTIVATED BY FLYING DRONES OR TELEPHONE?

Tina - USA (28198)
Some people are sensitive to high frequency electrical signals, such as come from high power electrical lines. Also, a defective microwave oven can emit electrical signals that affect some people.
For people with older metallic filling in their teeth, high frequency electrical signals can even heat of the fillings. It is good to check with your dentist on this issue.
Such sensitivity can cause anxiety attacks, as well as other symptoms. If you have some device like a pacemaker, you should make sure it is not defective and causing you some problems. It is good to check with your doctor to make sure devices working properly.
I hope this helps you solve your problems. Best wishes for good health.
