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
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.
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.
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.
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.
