Product Description

Amazon.com

Coated inside and out with rugged nonstick, Circulon 2 cookware eliminates the chore of scrubbing pots and pans. Inside their bottoms, Circulon's patented Hi-Low system of concentric grooves creates narrow ridges to take utensil abuse, leaving low, wide grooves unscathed to readily release food and ensuring long life for the nonstick coating. Beneath the nonstick is harder-than-steel anodized aluminum. Pot and pan bottoms are left uncoated to conduct heat quickly and prevent hot spots. Slip-resistant synthetic grips on riveted, polished, stainless-steel handles stay cool on the stovetop and go safely in an oven up to 350 degrees F. Heavyweight, 18/10 stainless-steel lids polished to a mirror finish present a gleaming contrast to the attractive, charcoal gray, enamel-like appearance of Circulon 2's nonstick exterior.

The Hi-Low concentric grooves climb all the way up the rounded sides of this 12-inch stir-fry pan (which doesn't have a lid), permitting thorough stirring and scraping without damaging the nonstick coating. It's 3 inches deep, providing room for lots of vegetables or Asian preparations. Wide at the top and narrow at the bottom, it can be used to deep-fry food with less oil than a straight-sided pan. It carries a lifetime warranty against defects and should be hand washed. --Fred Brack

Of all the pans in my kitchen, this is the one I use the most. This pan is pretty heavy and is extremely durable, and nothing sticks to the surface, even crusted items that have been burned on the bottom of the pan. They didn't skimp with the handle like on some other pans -- its thickness makes it easy to lift a heavy load of food, and it seems like it can take a lot of abuse. Overall, I think the closest competitor to this pan is the stir-fry pan from Analon, but after holding both in my hands at the store, I chose this one due to the handle and the seemingly-better non stick surface.
This appears to be the exact pan that Martin Yan always uses on his PBS show ("Chinatowns") -- he almost never uses a wok, and when he does, it's the Circulon 2 wok (which I don't have, because who needs it with this 12" stir fry pan). Granted, I'm sure that Circulon sponsors his show, but it's still a good pan.
This pan is most useful as a wok replacement. Because it doesn't have a flat bottom, I can't use it for everything (e.g. omletts), but I also frequently use it in non-wok situations such as pasta sauces. At 12" it can fit a surprising amount of stir-fry, enough for 4-6 people if it's filled to the brim, but occasionally I do wish Circulon made a bigger stir-fry pan besides their wok. I also wish it came with a lid, but I own a 12" lid from another pan, so I don't need one.
After owning this pan for a year, I am so impressed with Circulon that now I always search for pans in the Circulon 2 lineup before considering anything else.

Highly recommended.
It's a "2", making it a sturdier, heftier pan than a "Classic." I bought this "2" 12-Inch pan to replace my "Circulon Classic 11-Inch Nonstick Stir Fry Pan" bought in 2000 here at Amazon (= still available at Amazon) because of its slightly larger size.
I gave the 11-Inch Classic [in still perfect condition after all my use of more than 3 years] away to my college kid who wanted to buy one like Mom's stir-fry pan herself.
Just take good care of your pan, wood or plastic utensils only, and DO NOT overheat coated pans, and you'll be happy.

Wow... this pan is incredible! Food literally glides off it, even when I don't even use oil! And I've never had a pan that's easier to clean in my whole life. Eggs, fish, baked chicken in mushroom cream sauce, you name it.

Ironically, I've made everything *except* stir-fry stuff in it so far, partly because I'm used to using high heat when I make such dishes and the instructions on this pan note that high heat should not be used with it. But other than that... no complaints at all.

This is is great size for the typical family and the quality of the pan is excellent. Keep the pan out of the dishwasher (which isn't hard since non-stick surface makes food just slide off), away from metal utensils, and don't overheat and the non-stick surface will last for many years.

I have the same model pan, only with a cover, and I can't say enough good things about it. First, the nonstick coating is incredible! NOTHING gets trapped on this at all, and even things like browned onions, etc. slide right off. Second, the pan heats evenly through its entire surface. I use it for nearly everything and its really served me well.

This is a great wok for everyday use. I have been using this model for more than 10 years. I'm buying my third one for future use.

One lesson I learned is that it can not handle high heat (the wok will change color). I have learned to cook using medium heat. The handle is very comfortable and food does not stick! I use it many times a week to stir fry meat, tofu, veggies, noodles and rice. It is also very easy to clean.

This is a great product and by far the best wok I have used (surely better and cheaper than Calphalon).

It seems like I had to buy a non stick pan every two years even though I followed instructions and maintained them according to manufacture directions. However, recently I purchased the Circulon round grill pan. I was truly amazed. No sprays or oils needed, easy clean up. With regard to the 12" pan with lid, it's great. I do wish it had a handle on the other side because it would be easier to lift. Highly recommend.
