Circulon cookware is durable cookware made of hard-anodized aluminum and stainless steel. Each piece of this cookware has a PFOA-free non-stick surface on both the inside and the outside, which will help you serve food out of each dish and clean it quickly. In each set of cookware, you'll get a skillet, a multipurpose pan with a tempered lid, a multipurpose casserole dish with a colander lid, a recipe book and a pair of heat-resistant cooking utensils.
The cost of Circulon is $149.97 plus $19.99 shipping, for a total price of $169.96.

Each Circulon pan is made up of a stainless steel base and hard-anodized aluminum layers that are actually stronger than the stainless steel itself. These materials not only make each pan incredibly durable, but they also protect each pan's non-stick coating from harm, even throughout thousands of uses. The aluminum is arranged in concentric circles that protect the inner non-stick coating from scratches, so it'll work effectively for years. In fact, each of these pans may work well for up to 10 times longer than pans of a similar size and shape—but of a different brand—are able to.
The double layer of aluminum in each pan, along with the stainless steel base, lead to even heat distribution throughout the pan. Therefore, when you cook with this type of cookware, you won't end up with some bites of your food being hot and others cold, or some seeming hard while others seem soggy.
Each of the three pieces of cookware in each Circulon set will work on any type of stovetop, including those of the induction variety, and you can also put each one in the oven. If you do put one in the oven, though, make sure the temperature isn't set any higher than 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
These pieces of cookware are sturdy enough to hold up to six pounds of food, so you won't be restricted as to what you can cook in each one. Their weight capacity will certainly come in handy when you need to cook heavy hamburgers or chicken burgers, or large chunks of pork or steak. Aside from its weight capacity, the multipurpose casserole dish will also hold up to five and a half quarts of a particular casserole.
Each piece of cookware has double-riveted handles, which are less likely to fall off than the single-riveted ones found on some other pans and dishes. While the skillet and multipurpose pan have one handle each, the casserole dish actually has two, and the two lids that come with every set each have one.
PFOA stands for perfluorooctanoic acid, which is a potentially toxic chemical that's found within some cookware products. Fortunately, the non-stick coating on each Circulon dish or pan doesn't contain this chemical, nor does any other part of these dishes or pans. As a result, you can rest assured that you and anyone you're cooking for won't be subject to the toxicity that may come from this substance.
If you've got a dishwasher, you'll be able to wash any piece of cookware from one of these sets in it safely.
By using your Circulon pan (measuring about 6 inches in diameter) with the tempered lid alone, you'll be able to perform six different cooking functions: frying, deep-frying, sauteing, baking, braising and roasting. If you need a bit more room to cook something, however, you may be able to switch to your 8.5-inch skillet or the deep casserole dish. Although using the accompanying lids with the dish and multipurpose pan will help lock in the flavor of your food, you can always leave one off if it won't fit over whatever you're cooking.
If you don't have a dishwasher or want to clean food off your Circulon cookware before putting it in there, all of the pieces can be rinsed off quickly. Due to their non-stick nature, any type of food will slide quickly off the inside or outside of each piece and into your sink. For rinsing purposes, you may not even need a cloth or sponge. If you have no dishwasher and are washing an entire dish or pan by hand, though, you should always be sure to use soap and do a bit of gentle scrubbing.
Besides the three pieces of cookware that you'll get, each Circulon set comes with other accessories, including a spatula, a solid spoon, and a recipe book. Both the spatula and spoon are made of a combination of stainless steel and heat-resistant nylon, which means that they'll be able to withstand the heat of virtually any pan or dish without getting damaged. The recipe book has been created specifically for use with this cookware, so it'll give you lots of great ideas when it comes to what to cook within your skillet, pan or casserole dish.
If you think that the standard-sized set of this cookware isn't big enough for your needs, there is a deluxe version available. With this version, you'll get all the pieces you'd get in a standard set, plus an 11-inch skillet and a saucepan that'll hold 3.5 quarts of liquid.
Within each of these cookware sets, regardless of whether you choose the standard or deluxe version, each piece (except for the recipe book) is brown or black. If you prefer cookware in brighter colors or pastel shades, you may not be satisfied with one of these sets, regardless of their functionality.
While each piece of Circulon cookware can be used on any stove, and in ovens that are cooler than 400 degrees Fahrenheit, it's not safe to put any of these cookware pieces in the microwave. Even if you were to try, most or even all of them wouldn't fit in most microwaves, as their handles would get in the way. Consequently, someone who frequently cooks their food in their microwave instead of on their stove or in their oven may prefer an entirely different set of pans and dishes.
If you don't have a colander for straining pasta, vegetables, and such, getting this entire set of Circulon cookware will eliminate your need for one. Instead of getting a separate one, you'll be able to pull the colander-style lid off your casserole dish and use it as a colander.
When you're cooking food for a group with one of these pieces of cookware, you'll be able to get the food to the table faster by not transferring it to a serving dish. The skillet, multipurpose pan and casserole dish can all double as serving dishes that can be plopped right down on the table—just remember to lay out a potholder first!
