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 BelKraft!
