This cookware set is an exceptional value, including all of the pans needed to equip your kitchen with the most used cooking pieces. As the set contains only basic pieces, you'll really use each and every pan. It includes saucepans for whisking a homemade sauce or cooking your morning oatmeal, a big stockpot for soups, stews or boiling pasta, and skillets (probably the most used pan in any kitchen) that will help you turn out perfect crepes or a simple grilled cheese sandwich. The set also includes a sauté pan, a wide, straight-sided pan that can perform many of the functions of a skillet but features deep sides for extra capacity, perfect for one dish meals. Start your dish in this pan by sautéing onions and browning meat, then add your liquid and other ingredients into the same pan to finish on the stovetop or in the oven.

This set looks fantastic. Also it stays nice because it does not stain and nothing sticks to it, so it is very easy to clean. This is one of the best purchases I have ever made. I am sold on Circulon and I will buy more products from them in the future. This is an excellent product and it will not disappoint you.
It takes less heat to cook with Circulon. It cooks a lot faster at a lower flame so it takes some getting used to. My wife and I are always remarking how wonderful this cookware is. As to longevity, I do not know. My feeling is that we will have this for years with proper maintenance. We hand wash these pots and pans, carefully so as not to mar the non-stick finish. Very important for any non-stick finish.
This is one of the few products that I have purchased that I am 120% happy with. As a professional photographer I am quite dialed in to the performance of equipment. Circulon is the best cookware I have ever used, bar none. Absolutely recommend this to any and all that want a TRUE non-stick cookware. You actually don't need oil, butter or any thing to keep food from sticking. Just...keep your burner settings lower than you are used to when using this. No high heat; you won't need it. The cooking time will still be quicker and save you on your gas or electric bill.
Trying to find out if pans are okay for a ceramic cook top is very difficult; some say they are but most don't mention it one way or the other. After reading up on the different types of teflon, and deciding to spend mid-range bucks on cookware (I wanted a skillet and a 3 quart pan, too), I went with the higher quality teflon used in the Circulon Elite.
I have had no problems with this cookware chipping or flaking and I use at least 3 pans on a daily basis. I spent a lot of money and I take care of them carefully. I wash them by hand, I don't use non-stick spray (I brush a little canola oil with a silicon brush - much cheaper than nonstick sprays anyway), I seldom use the highest heat, and I put paper towels between the ones I have to stack in storage. Cooking on a ceramic cook top is different than cooking on electric or gas which has also encouraged me to be gentler on these pans. Also, I don't use metal utensils - I have plenty of the other and I don't see a benefit. The 10" saute' gets the most abuse (higher temperatures and lots of browning) and it is still in like new condition.
The pans cook very evenly; even after a year of daily use. It might have something to do with the cooktop, but whenever I'm boiling water, I'm amazed at how even they heat!
They wash very well, including the outside bottom. I think because the inside surface is made to handle metal spoons, etc.,(used gently) it takes a little more cleaning effort than your typical smooth teflon pan, but "little" is the operative word here. I'm wondering if the "clay" bottom that another reviewer mentioned is just residue left from not cleaning it well enough - I have noticed that it can look clean when it is wet but if I didn't clean it well enough, it isn't shiny and there is a kind of white dull film on the bottom in the places I missed.
The reason they get 4 stars instead of 5: 1) The smallest sauce pan is badly balanced. It's okay on the stove top, but when I remove it to a trivet I have to be careful how I set it down or it tips toward the handle. 2) This set should have a three-quart pan. I tried to do without it for about 6 months, but I broke down and bought it. If you are replacing another set, keep your 3 quart. I couldn't because my old set wasn't right for ceramic cook tops.
I also bought the square skillet and the 5.5 quart dutch oven. The skillet is excellent; the dutch oven doesn't have the rubber handles or lid handle - fortunately one of the other lids fits on dutch oven, so I don't always have to remember the hot pad!
Bottom line for me is that if you aren't willing to wait a little longer for your pans to heat up and wash them by hand, buy a cheap non-stick set and replace them more often.
As mentioned in other reviews, this set probably will not cover all of your cooking needs if you tend to do large meals at once... I have ordered the large gridle and the 12" deep covered pan to round out my set. But all in all, I could not be happier with the performance and price of the Circulon Elite pieces, especially for the great price I got here on Amazon!
