Reviews of Ekco stainless steel cookware are generally positive, and most users find that this cookware lasts for many years of use after the initial investment of its purchase price. However, reviewers note that proper care is essential to assuring the longevity of Ekco's stainless steel cookware products.
The World Kitchen spin-off of Corning's kitchenware products division acquired the original Ekco company in 1999. World Kitchen continues to use the Ekco brand name for many of its stainless steel kitchen products. Despite their similar names, the Ekco flatware company is not related to the Ecko fashion company owned by former street artist Marc Ecko.
