I too bought a set of Homemaker's Guild cookware in 1977 and am in need of lid handles. I would love to be able to replace them.
Your problem is the reason I never bought a any cookware with plastic handles. Also never bought a set because in sets there are always some pots/pans one hardly (or never) uses, open stock, when on sale, is the how I bought mine.
I have been also searching for Replacement lids to my pans. I came across this site after reading your post and came back to give it to you. They have a list of replacement lids so I am giving it a try, it does cost money though, hope it can work for us loyal Homemakers guild pan lovers. I have had my set since 1976 and the long handle on the large saucepan snapped in half today..
Contact Regal Ware they replaced my handles for the price of shipping.
