I ordered additional saucepans to use when cooking. I love the even cooking and lack of burning. The design is lovely also. Nothing sticks to the pan and the heat is evenly distributed. Wonderful to cook with.

There are thicker, heavier stainless steel pots out there for sure, but these were perfect for what I needed them for. I made soup for a large Church gathering, and they looked good, cooked well, and they were not that heavy to carry in to Church from my car. I am quite sure I will find them useful at home too.

I love the weight of the pot and the fact it heats up food evenly and never burns anything. This pot also is so easy to clean even if the gravy or soup sticks to the bottom when cooking...it still comes clean quickly and completely. Love this pot! I already own one but this one was present to my children. They love it too.

I will definitely be purchasing more of these in the future. This pot is wonderful for cooking and cleans well. I thought it would be a little bigger but its a great pot no matter the size. Maybe I will just look for a set with varying sizes because its worth the money.

I had been looking for new pans for a while... I bought the bigger set from O but needed a couple of extra pans, because I cook a lot. This pan is a nice size--for when you don't want to use the giant stockpot for soup or pasta, it's perfect. And it has a nice feature with the pouring spout lid. A great addition to my set!

very poor quality stainless steel, everything that you try and cook in these burns or sticks to the bottom of the pan even when turned down very low. I purchased them to make soap but first tried to use them to make stew, chili, and just warm milk, but everything sticks! Would not recommend for cooking in, maybe as a decorative display pot or planter.

This pan's cooking surface is not completely flat, so oil will spread out in a ring around the outer most edge of the pan. This can be a pain to some, but we were happy to see that at least the bottom of the pan is nice and flat so we get even heating on our smooth-top stove (non-induction). The cooking surface also came slightly scratched, which leads me to believe this won't be a very durable pan. As long as we get a few months of use out of it I'll be happy, given the reasonable price. We bought this with the expectation that if it doesn't last until we get an induction unit (or doesn't work as well as it claims with an induction unit) we'll just replace it at that time with something higher-end.

Love the Circulon products. Have bakeware, skillets, pots & pans, and there isn't one I would trade for another product. This skillet is no exception. I only wish a lid would have come with it. I'm very satisfied, and I have been a homemaker that loves to cook and bake for 53 years, so I've experienced other brands, some much more expensive, but Circulon is #1 for me.

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.

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!

I have gone through lots of nonstick skillets that seem to scratch and chip even with use of soft utensils when cooking. This one outlast any I've tried. It has the All Clad quality at a fair price.

These pans are great to cook with and clean up with hot water, easy! Nothing sticks and I have used them in the oven as well.

Couldn't have been easier to order, quick delivery, arrived on time, skillets were as promised so cooking and cleaning up afterwards is easy. Thank you! I will be back!

Ostensibly expensive, this German non-stick frying pan is actually a good value since it performs so much better than cheap pans. I cook eggs every morning of my life and this pan is now my favorite earthly possession. Though its non-stick finish is approved for metal utensils I never need a spatula. The food always slides off the pan onto my plate. Cleanup takes a fraction of the time it used to since nothing sticks to the pan inside or out. After two weeks of daily use there is no evident wear. I expect it to last for many years and it's a pleasure to cook with it every time. I've never before written a product review but this item is special.

My daughter has this pot in the 3.5 qt size. While on vacation at her home I used her pot and loved the way it cooks all types of food. Love the clear glass lid and the vents in lid. Food cooks evenly and nothing burns.. Searched website for the 3.5 size but only able to find pot in 3.0 qt size but ordered it anyway. Love my pot. I use it for everything from rice to sauces.

I inherited some of this cookware from my Mom's collection and I find it to be a great addition to my kitchen. It cooks beautifully, cleans easily and travels well when bringing to a picnic or potluck! I bought this piece for a friend for her bridal shower gift.

After Buying a few Le Cuistot pots i see that they are very worth and hope to collect them all with time. I made some research on Cans Iron Cookware and learned the following. Cast iron's ability to withstand and maintain very high cooking temperatures makes it a common choice for searing or frying, and its excellent heat retention makes it a good option for long-cooking stews or braised dishes. Because cast iron skillets can develop a "non-stick" surface, they are also a good choice for egg dishes. Other uses of cast iron pans include baking, for instance for making cornbread, cobblers and cakes. Most bare cast iron pots and pans are cast from a single piece of metal in order to provide even distribution of heat. This quality allows most bare cast iron pans to serve as dual-purpose stovetop fryers and oven baking dishes. Many recipes call for the use of a cast iron skillet or pot, especially so that the dish can be initially seared or fried on the stovetop then transferred into the oven, pan and all, to finish baking. Likewise, cast iron skillets can double as baking dishes. Cornbread in particular is seen as a food item that is best prepared in a cast iron skillet: the iron pan is heated beforehand in the oven, the ingredients are first combined and mixed in a mixing bowl, then added to the heated pan, and the dish is then placed directly into the oven for fast baking. This differs from many other cooking pots, which have varying components that may be damaged by the excessive temperatures of 400 °F (204 °C) or more. Cast iron is a very slow conductor of heat and forms hot spots if heated too quickly, or on an undersized burner; however, it has excellent heat retention properties, and the entire pan will eventually become extremely hot, including the iron handle or handles. Health effects: An American Dietetic Association study found that cast iron cookware can leach significant amounts of dietary iron into food. The amounts of iron absorbed varied greatly depending on the food, its acidity, its water content, how long it was cooked, and how old the cookware was. The iron in spaghetti sauce increased 2,109 percent (from .35 mg/100g to 7.38 mg/100g), while other foods increased less dramatically, for example the iron in cornbread increased 28 percent, from 0.67 to 0.86 mg/100g. Anemics, and those with iron deficiencies, may benefit from this effect. People with hemochromatosis (iron overload, bronze disease) should avoid using cast iron cookware because of the iron leaching effect Seasoning A seasoned pan has a stick-resistant coating created by polymerized oils and fats. Seasoning is a process by which a layer of animal fat or vegetable oil is applied and cooked onto cast iron or carbon steel cookware. New cookware should be vigorously washed in hot water with a strong detergent to remove any casting oils from the cookware's surface. A light coat of oil is applied and the cookware is placed upside down on the middle rack and on layer of newspaper (to drain for an hour), the newspaper is removed, then the oven set to 350 degrees (F) and baked for 30 minutes. Some cookware comes pre-seasoned from the factory. The seasoning layer protects the cookware from rusting, provides a non-stick surface for cooking, and prevents food from interacting with the iron of the pan. However, frequent use of acidic foods such as tomato sauce will remove the seasoning and the cookware will need to be re-seasoned frequently. Enamel-coated cast iron pans do not need seasoning, as the enamel coating prevents rust in most instances. Television chef Alton Brown advocates re-seasoning cast iron cookware yearly to ensure a non-stick surface and to protect the surface from rust. Cleaning Because ordinary cookware cleaning techniques like scouring or washing in a dishwasher can remove or damage the seasoning on a bare cast iron pan, these pans should not be cleaned like most other cookware. Some cast iron aficionados advocate never cleaning cast iron pans at all, simply wiping them out after use, or washing them with hot water and a stiff brush. Others advocate washing with mild soap and water, and then re-applying a thin layer of fat or oil. (a can of spray cooking oil is a convienent way to oil a pan). A third approach is to scrub with coarse salt and a paper towel or clean rag.

Choosing the perfect cookware is a matter of personal preference and cooking style, but understanding the differences can help every cook.

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.

Passover is a Jewish festival that begins at sunset on the 14th day of the Jewish calendar month "Nisan," which falls in March or April. The holiday, called Pesach in Hebrew, commemorates and retells the story of the Hebrews' emancipation from slavery under Pharaoh and their Exodus from Egypt under the leadership of Moses. In the days leading to the Hebrews' flight from Egypt, God afflicted the Egyptians with 10 plagues, the final one being the death of the firstborn of Egypt. To protect the Hebrews from the final plague, God instructed them to apply the blood of a spring lamb to the posts of their doorways. He would then "pass over" these homes. The holiday features both intensive preparation and festive meals.
