Circulon Elite Premier non-stick hard anodised 4 piece (16, 18, 20 & 24 cm) set
The pots look good and are good quality but I never thought to check the practicality of the pots before purchasing. I like to have pots which I can use to drain the cooking water out of from pasta, vegetables, potatoes etc but unfortunately these pots do not have this function, so its a bit of a faff not being able to do this and having to use colander. If you are already used to doing that, then I recommend these pots, but if like me, your not, then don't buy these ones.
This set was on offer so I was really pleased. I had my doubts as I had read some people had problems with the surface coming off. I have been using these pans for over two weeks now and they are constantly in use. I have been letting them cool on their own before washing in warm soapy water with a sponge and have had no problems. Thanks for a fab product.
The pans are very easy to use, the only feature missing is a steam whole in the lid.
Easy to use. Good grip handles and attractive to look at.
these pans look class on the hob
nice looking set of pans.even cooking especially the scillet. delighted with them and pleased they were in sale. dont think i would have paid full price
non stick coming off
Purchased these pans thinking that they were going to last a long time and be a good investment, and initially I was very happy, they seemed very good quality and stylish which you would expect for the money. I did a lot of research and shopped around and decided that following the excellent reviews I would get them. but after only a month, the non stick coating on the inside bottom of every one of the 4 pans was starting to what I can only describe as 'bubble', it appeared to be lifting and it wasn't long before it was coming off into my food. Every meal I cooked with the pans had black non stick coating on the food. After 3 months, the state of the pans was terrible, they looked scratched and had little non stick left despite following the care instructions from day 1. I have not used metal utensils in the pans despite them being metal utensil safe, iv never used a scouring pad to clean them.
I got exchange and exactly the same thing has happened to the second set of pans within the same timescale, very frustrating. I ended up going to meyer the manufacturers who have stated that 'following examination of the pans, I can confirm that there is a fault', and will replace them. Very disappointed as it is not what I expected for the money, it has been a complete inconvenience, and waste of my time. I am now awaiting my replacement pans, thankfully not the 'elite' but sadly still circulon. do not buy!
Great quality,good investment
Finally decided to upgrade the pots and pans. Did quite a lot of research as knew it was not going to be cheap. These are a lovely set, look great and wash well. Have invested in some pot dividers to make sure I don't chip them when stacking and hopefully keep them going for longer. They are quite heavy and have long handles but the are solid and feel as though they are built to last. The sides are nice and high as well so things don't seem to boil over. My only complaint is there are no steam holes in the lids.
Excellent cookware I would highly recommend these pans
We have a couple of frying pans in this range which are really good so when we saw this offer we couldn't resist. They are very good, nice to use and very easy to clean. What more could you want.
Good quality but too small for me
The pots are high quality but I would not pay the full price for them. They were too small for me so I returned them. I would recommend on quality.
