I'm building my pots and pans collection one at a time and this was a great addition! You really don't need any of those big sets...just choose the ones you will use and buy a good one of each...this was my good wok...

I bought this and recived it very quickly (as always with Overstock). I like it, but it really is very light weight. I cook a lot and prefer heavier pots and pans. Although it is very light, I would still recommend this products. It serves its purposes for steaming vegetables and cooking pasta and it is not too expensive.

This is a great pot and is very high quality. I almost bought some other cheap pot but I am extremely happy to finally decided to purchase this one. This pot will make your other cheap pots and pans look cheaper. This one looks great with my Circulon Elite cookware set.

I love my new stir-fry pan made by Circulon. All my other pots and pans are Circulon, so I knew what I was getting. It is very large and holds a lot of veggies, as well as the bean sprouts and meat. Cooks evenly and makes dinner a snap with everything (well, except for the rice) in one pan!

This is the best saucepan I have ever owned. The handle stays cool on my high powered gas burners, glass lid is easy to see thru. Nothing , I mean nothing sticks to it. Very even heat and retention. Excellent quality.. I will be purchasing more analon pots and pans.

Well, I live in a household of 3 seniors and I cook since they all ruin my stainless pots and pans... Not sure why people think food will cook better and faster if you turn the gas up all the way. In self defense I bought this pan for my older siblings to use for their popcorn since scrubbing black out of my "good" pots is boring. This is a great pot, they can have the gas up as high as they want, burn themselves if they feel the need and their is NO BLACK BUILD UP BURNT STUFF for me to clean up. To answer your questions, these two do not understand washing dishes or the concept of opening the dishwasher. I have given up on that as well. I will buy a couple more of these pots and pans. I actually like them myself.

Only thing I wish is that it matched other pots and pans of this type. My mom always used enamel on steel pots and pans and you used to be able to buy whole sets, including frying pans in the 70s and 80s. These are the only commonly available pots and pans that are totally non reactive. Even stainless steel reacts with acids. Don't believe me? Look it up on pubmed. Anyway, this is a healthy soup pot and I made a nice bone broth in it most recently. I also use it for all sorts of things like Coq au Vin, or any stew that requires you to brown the meat first. It's wide at the bottom, so you can spread out a large cut of beef, or cut up chicken on the bottom. You still may want to use an additional frying pan if you need to use more than one cut of meat, or work in batches. If I feel lazy, I just brown the outside of the meat in the oven but it's not exactly the same flavor. It is unwieldy to clean, that's for sure. Make sure you don't put he bottom down in an oily spot or you'll be turning it over and over trying to clean off the grease from the outside as well as the inside. But that's true for any stockpot. At least this one's lighter than a stainless one. My previous one was stainless but food tastes better in this one.

I have always thought pots and pans were highly overrated to justify their outrageous price. This Circulon saucepan has to be the exception. With the very reasonable pricing from Overstock, this has been a 'perfect purchase'. If I HAD to find one negative, it would be the high profile on the lid handle whick becomes awkward for storing, but the quality of the pan itself MORE than compensates for that. Love the spouts!!! I can now fill our hummingbird and oriole feeders without missing a single drop!

This was bought as a gift for my daughter and her husband. I purchased the 12pc. set for them for Christmas but it did not come with the 3qt pan, Well, when they received the set they were thrilled with it. I ordered it in red which was the color they wanted and now they say they are afraid to use them because they are so pretty. So, I ordered this pan to add to the set because, when you are cooking for a family, this size is used most often, I think. Boiling potatoes or cooking noodles or sauces etc. So, I highly recommend the circulon pots and pans and, for sure, the 3 quart covered saucepan.

I searched locally for a really good, solid sauce pan. Most of our stores only sell sets and we didn't need a whole set of pots and pans. On Overstock I found a sauce pan that fit our needs. It is beautifully crafted. It allows food to cook thoroughly throughout the entire pan. The best part is the lid, with its built-in strainer - perfect for pasta or rice. I would recommend this product to anyone, I love it!

I love this T-fal sauce pan so much, I'm going to buy the whole set...the quality is excellent and the price is right! I do a lot of cooking and my pots and pans are showing wear. After trying this sauce pan, I'm sold. The price for the set at Overstock is more than thirty dollars cheaper than the department store price. I can always count on Overstock for good quality, fast delivery and great prices!

I ordered this skillet to go with the set of Pots and Pans that I had ordered as the set did not have aq large skillet. It goes with the set so very well. It heats evenly and fast on medium heat. The cleaning of it is so EASY for which I am very thankful. It also washes up great in the dish washer although I usually just wash it up in the sink. The only thing I don't like is that water collects under the knob if it is left in water which only happened once and once I found that I make sure I do not leave it submerged. For anyone wanting a larger skillet I would highly recommend this one!!!

I used this pot last night for the first time. It is a beautiful "instrument " to use for your recipes ! I cooked a delicious (from views rec'd from guests ) ! I was always one to look for and use good quality so called "non stick" cookware. I returned a few years ago to high quality stainless steel products from known firms and even with the extra elbow grease needed for clean up, with a good soaking the job is not too difficult at all. I feel I am using safer and time proven quality when I use stainless. I love using these pots and pans for all my new and old recipe. Not a bad review yet on the finished product, either ! Thank you, O.com , you are w/o doubt or qualification, one, fine place to shop. Love this site !!!!

This Anolon skillet is wonderful! The copper layer is what adds the value. It's heats up evenly and the metal lid creates a perfect cooking environment. You will have to get used to cooking at a lower heat setting because this heats up so well and fast. I lowered the heat and placed the lid on my favorite treat, turkey burgers, and came back to the juiciest burgers I ever cooked! It is solidly built, not too heavy. No need to waste space in the dishwasher since it basically wipes clean with a paper towel. I have added several pieces of Anolon Nouvelle to supplement my Circulon Infinite collection because they are so much easier to clean and provide perfect heat distribution. Plus, they are just so pretty! I even bought pieces for my mother whose arthritis prevents her from being able to scrub pots and pans. This Anolon technology is definitely superior to Circulon!
Choosing the perfect cookware is a matter of personal preference and cooking style, but understanding the differences can help every cook. Professional chefs agree that every household needs an 8- to 10-inch skillet, a 5- to 7-quart sauce pan and a stock pot. Choose pans that fit your needs, and you will love cooking with them.
For chefs with strong opinions and a no-nonsense approach to cooking, stainless steel cookware is a popular choice. Prized for its resistance to staining, odors, and the transference of flavors, stainless steel cookware is a sound choice for any kitchen. It does require some special care, however, if you want to make the most of your pots and pans.
While most cooks know that you need to season your food before it will taste good, new cooks might not know that you can also season your pots and pans. Seasoning is a process in which you prepare a pan or other cookware before you use it for the first time. When you season stainless steel pots and pans, you are filling the pores of the pan's surface with carbonized oil, which blocks the oxidation process and therefore keeps the cookware from rusting or pitting. In addition, seasoning helps to prevent food from sticking to the pan. The following steps will teach you how to season and protect your stainless steel pots and pans so they will last longer and work better.
Once you cook with cast iron, you'll understand why people are so attached to this sturdy, efficient cookware. When well-seasoned and cared for properly, cast-iron cookware can last generations and will provide an excellent natural, nonstick surface. Cooking with cast-iron pots and pans isn't much different than using other types of pots and pans, but there are a few important techniques you should be aware of in order to get the most out of your cast-iron cookware.

They say the kitchen is the heart of a home, but in many homes, it's also the biggest source of energy waste. Kitchen lighting, refrigeration and cooking consume about 41.5 percent of the total home energy use; add space heating, cooling, and water heating to that total, and you'll see your kitchen is quite the energy hog. Creating an eco-friendly kitchen includes your choice of appliances, but it also goes beyond that; the floors, paint, pots and pans, and other kitchen items you use can make your kitchen eco-friendly as well.
