Product Description

Amazon.com

This functional 14-piece set offers a complete array of cookware for the kitchen at a reasonable price. The set includes three covered saucepans in 2-, 3-, and 4-quart sizes; 5-1/2- and 8-quart covered stockpots; 8- and 10-inch shallow French skillets; and a 12-inch, 5-quart covered sauté pan. The exteriors of the pans in this set are durable hard-anodized aluminum while a hard-anodized aluminum core distributes heat evenly through the pans without hot spots. Three coats of DuPont nonstick coating line the pan’s interiors. Circulon’s patented Hi-Low grooves protect the nonstick coating from wear by exposing only a small portion of the nonstick surface to cooking. The result is longer lasting performance and easy cleaning. The 18/10 stainless steel lids are slightly domed to capture moisture when steaming or braising foods. Handles are made of stay-cool heat-resistant plastic and are oven-safe to 350 degrees F. This cookware is covered by a lifetime limited warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

My wife and I bought this set about 3 years ago and they are still nearly as good as new. We selected them over Analon and Cephalon because the saucepans and skillets have molded rubber handles. This makes it possible to handle the pots without using pot holders. My wife does the cooking and I clean up so I can tell you that she has never been able to damage or even get food stuck on the cooking surfaces.
One thing that you should understand about any aluminum or cast iron cookware is staining of the outside surface. Any oils or food that spill onto the outside during cooking will actually be absorbed into the metal surface creating a dark stain that cannot be removed. I consider this part of the seasoning of the cookware and not unattractive but people who like their cookware to always look new should consider stainless steel or something.

I've had my circulon set for about 4 1/2 years now and I loved them, couldn't live without them, until a few months ago. They're becoming increasingly difficult to clean and are forming a sticky residue despite the fact that I've cared for them exactly as the maufacturer said. When looking for the Meyers web site to email them, I came across some complaints of the exact same nature by people who sent their cookware back to Meyers in hopes that they would make good on the lifetime warrenty and Meyers sent a form letter (!!) saying they obviously misused them and that the warrenty is void. Unless you're willing to shell out a few hundred dollars for pots every few years (I'm not!) look elsewhere.

I bought this set for my new home when I got married. I had a great recommendation by a friend, and I worked in a store where they were sold. They cook very evenly and stay hot. I even accidentally let something burn in them, and they were still very easy to clean after soaking them for a little bit. The only minor complaint that I have is that if something stains the outside of the pan, it's a little difficult to remove. Meyer only recommends the use of making a paste of baking soda. But it doesn't hurt the overall use of the pans. I don't know why people complain about cooking eggs in them. They slide out very easily. Plus, you get the nifty little grooves in them. :)

Hello,
I am a busy professional, one of the reasons I did not cook at home earlier was the time it took to wash the pots and pans. And apart from that, I needed the superlative non-stick ability to prevent the food from sticking to the bottom and burning. This circulon satisifes both criteria upto a certain degree. The food doesnt stick - but there is a residue left on the pan, and after repeated use you will notice a thin film of blackish mass sticking to the pan surface, which is impossible to remove because of the grooves. And you cant use a scrubber - just a light sponge for cleaning, for fear of ruining the non-stick.

But my biggest gripe is the lower surface of the pan, food does stick to it and then it burns and the pan looks terribly terribly ugly.

Regarding the non-stick durability : I had a pasta cooking and draining pan from circulon (similar in make to this 14 piece cookware set), and that one's non-stick lasted me about a year before becoming useless. I have been using this 14 piece cookware set for the last 5 months, the non-stick works fine till now.

I purchased this 14 piece cookware set from Amazon for about $125. I use some pots and pans from this set everyday, but there are some which never see any use.

Thats because, this set is a weird assortment of sizes. The chef's pan and the large sauce pan are great. I wish there was a larger frying pan though, and I have never even taken out the smaller sauce pans or the little frying pan.

But bottomline is, it is better to buy this set rather than buy individual pieces (which turns out to be more expensive) or buying a no-nonstick cookware set. I used one of those stainless steel ones without non-stick, man, everything sticks to the bottom.

I received this wonderful set of pots and pans. They looked beautiful!!! When I went to put the lid on the large sauce pan, it would not fit. The pan is warped. I called the number that the warrenty gave and told them of the defective item. Their response was that because I bought the items through AMAZON that they would do nothing to help me. They make the product not AMAZON. So, as a result of them not standing by their product and their warranty I will not order another product that holds this name again. There are to many competitors that make fine cookware to spend my money on this company.

We have owned a set of these for perhaps 10 years. Within a few months of our purchase we concluded that the grooves were a gimmick. As described in more detail below, they make cooking and cleaning more difficult. Accordingly, we have slowly replaced the often used ones with flat bottom pans. Overall, we rate all the good quality flat bottom pans we have owned and used for a while as more enjoyable to cook with than these.

The good points:
The hard plastic handles are comfortable and insulate well. The heavy aluminum construction distributes heat evenly. They have survived 10 years of occasional mishaps with no dents. The steel lids have maintained their shapes but show scratches as would be expected. Only the most use pans show slight ware on the circular ridges.

Bad Points:
The circular grooves grip food making it very difficult to slide or nudge food around during frying or sauteing. Sliding and flipping eggs, omelets or pancakes is virtually impossible without first lifting the contents. After a year or two, we gave up and bought flat bottom pans for this type of cooking.

As a sauce thickens, the tiny trapped in the grooves often hardens and sometime burns before the balance of the sauce appears to be done. Avoiding this requires constant stirring. The problem is similar for cream soups and anything thickened with flower or corn starch.

The crust of items dusted in flower or bread crumbs and then browned tends to stick in the grooves unless there is plenty of oil in the pan initially and throughout cooking. Often, a flat edge spatula won't peal food out of the grooves.
