From lid to handle to base, each piece of Infinite Circulon cookware is geared for optimal performance in the kitchen--so home chefs can focus on the art of cooking, not the science. The hard-anodized aluminum bodies and stainless-steel bases with encapsulated aluminum cores offer the dual advantages of rapid, even heating and superior durability. Circulon's TOTAL nonstick system (rated the longest wearing by independent lab tests) features an all-over nonstick coating and a Hi-Low ring design that heats food over the entire cooking surface, but reduces abrasion by allowing only a portion of food and utensils to touch. Also, unlike most nonstick pans, Infinite goes right into the dishwasher so cleanup is a breeze.
This roomy 7-quart covered straining stockpot has high, straight sides and stay-cool loop handles made of cast stainless steel and riveted for extra strength. Nestling snugly onto the rim, the matching stainless-steel lid locks into place and features large and small holes on either side to drain off liquids. The deep charcoal grey and bright mirror-polish combination looks sleekly professional yet stylish enough to bring to the table for serving. The stockpot is oven-safe to 500 degrees F and can be used on all stovetops. Hard-anodized aluminum also doesn't chip, stain, or scratch, so the aptly named Infinite will keep its good looks for many years to come. It is backed with a limited lifetime warranty. --Kara Karll
