G R E A T ! ! ! For Some Things, Not For Others
on January 25, 2012
These pans are fantastic for boiling pasta and low to medium temperature cooking.
The non stick finish is so good that even when making macaroni the pasta will not stick to the bottom of the pan if unstirred for five minuets. That is impressive.
But, and this is a big BUT, these pans strictly prohibit cooking on high temperatures without liquids.
What does that mean?
It means that you cannot braise meats or use any of the popular ultra fast high temperature cooking methods.
The explanation is valid: no pans have a non-stick coating that can handle this sort of liquid free high temperature cooking. This is a true statement. But Calphalon Professional Series pans come close.
These Circulon pans are great, at what they do. I love the way they boil so evenly. I love the easy clean up. These are great non-stick pans. And, they look good too.
These also have loops for those who hang their pots and pans.
Over all, these are great pans. They just don't do it all. Be sure they work for your cooking methods before you buy and you will be happy.
