this is a second purchase the original set lasted about 16 years. The circulon brand is a a tried and true cooking experience. The food does not stick and you never need to pre treat pans prior to use. They clean up easy as well great purchase
When I purchased these pans, I expected the usual quality, which is partial nonstick. To my surprise these are of excellent quality ,the best nonstick I've ever bought. And the clean up is a breeze. Considering the fact , I purchased nonstick over the years, I almost gave up looking. When I saw these, for the price, I decided to take the chance. I'm glad I did. Very happy with my purchase. Also, the directions for cooking w/these pans is truly something everyone should read and practice, if want your pans to last. Though, w/these pans they really perform like nonstick right from the very start, no coatings or oil prep.
Been using these skillets for about month and absolutely love them. I haven't used metal utensils in them yet and not going to risk it as nothing sticks and I want it to stay that way. They have a good weight, heat quickly and clean-up easily.
I use this pan almost daily and can cook almost anything with little or no oil. Omelets slide right out of the pan, even when there's melted cheese. It only takes a rinse for food particles to come right off. You can put it in the dishwasher but it's so asy to clean I have just washed it by hand so far.
My current Circulon cookware became not so non-stick, but then I realized I purchased it over 20 years ago. I'm very impressed with the improvements they've made in construction and the non-stick surface. A heavy gauge skillet is a must have for all kitchens and this set performs like a pro.
