Our TOTAL® Non-Stick System
For nearly thirty years, Circulon cookware has been uniquely crafted with our 3-layer Premium TOTAL® non-stick system of circles.
This innovative non-stick system is integral to every single one of our products, and makes Circulon stand out from the crowd when it comes to superior, non-stick cooking performance.
We’re famous for our signature circle technology and we’re often asked what makes Circulon so special? How do our Circulon pans achieve such exceptional results in the kitchen?
Well, the secret to our durable and long lasting non-stick technology is our innovative system of unique hi-low circular grooves combined with a robust, state of the art non-stick coating. Featured in each of our pan ranges, the circular grooves have been incorporated to enhance cooking performance and reduce abrasion.
Our Circulon Hassle-Free Lifetime Guarantee
In every Circulon product, food is cooked and released across the whole surface of the pan. The raised circular grooves (‘hi’ area) allow a fraction of the cooking surface to take the abuse of the utensils, therefore protecting the majority of the cooking surface (‘low’ area), preventing everyday wear and tear.
This ingenious process helps to significantly reduce abrasion creating an exceptional non-stick surface, ensuring that Circulon cookware will not only last longer, but it will also deliver outstanding cooking performance – time after time.
Our signature circular grooves are also cleverly designed to create air pockets for exceptional food release. The natural fats released during the cooking process land in the air pockets delivering enhanced flavours and cooking food to perfection. This ingenious process ensures there’s little or no need for oil, which makes for healthier dishes every time whatever your culinary creation.
Our ‘Total’ Non-Stick Formula
Combined with our high low circular groove system is our superior non-stick formula.
Not only is this applied to the interior of the pan, but thanks to our innovative technology our non-stick formula is also applied to the pans exterior. This makes for easy cleaning, and it also means that our products won’t stain, scratch or chip ensuring a lifetime of exceptional cooking.
Developed and enhanced over the last 35 years, we’re so confident in Circulon’s non-stick performance that we offer our ‘Food Will Not Stick’ guarantee. If you’re not 100% happy with the non-stick performance of your Circulon pan, we will replace it completely free of charge. That’s our promise to you.
Stylish and Durable Design
We understand how important it is that your cookware delivers outstanding results, but also that your pans need to look the part in your kitchen. That’s why we concentrate just as much on getting the design of our products right as well as the technology.
At Circulon we have worked hard to ensure that the functional design and construction of every one of our pans doesn’t compromise the style of our cookware. By using the best quality materials for superior pan construction, we can assure you a lifetime of outstanding strength, durability and performance in the kitchen.
For cookware to be proud of, Circulon continues to embrace a classic style and design throughout each of its ranges - making it a practical and aesthetically pleasing addition to your kitchen for years to come.
The Making of a Circulon Pan
To bring you the very best in gourmet cookware, we use only the best materials to construct our pans ensuring they are high performing, high quality and long lasting.
Our exceptional cookware is crafted using a range of materials specifically selected to enhance the performance of our kitchenware items, to ensure we deliver outstanding cooking results.
To help you choose what type of cookware is best for you, here’s our informative guide to the best performing materials to suit your own specific culinary needs.
Why choose forged aluminium?
Forged aluminium is used to construct several of our cookware ranges as it is one of the best conductors of heat, second only to copper. In order to create forged aluminium we put our aluminium through our innovative cold forging process, where the material is compressed and condensed under immense pressure, making it extremely strong and highly resistant to corrosion and warping.
Thanks to this precision engineering, our products are high performing and lightweight. For fast, even cooking, heat travels faster up the side of the wall – meaning the heat source is delivered to the area of the pan where it is needed the most. The reinforced rim of the pan prevents any warping and makes it highly durable. Whilst the edge to edge induction base delivers optimum heat distribution meaning no hot spots, therefore cooking is more energy efficient.
Why choose hard anodised aluminium?
Hard anodised aluminium cookware is an excellent choice as it is extremely durable - twice as hard as stainless steel.
This exceptional durability derives from changing the molecular structure of the material. This is undertaken by exposing the pan to low level electrical charges, which changes the pan’s aluminium surface so that it becomes extremely hard.
Thanks to this durability, hard anodized cookware is also highly resistant to scratches, abrasion and corrosion, ensuring your cookware is designed to last within the most rigorous kitchen environments.
Hard anodized pans are also renowned for being excellent heat conductors. Due to the material’s thicker gauge, heat is conducted evenly with no hot spots and spreads evenly over the pan’s whole surface, not just the base. This ensures your ingredients will always be cooked to perfection.
At Circulon we are the pioneers of hard anodized non-stick cookware, bringing the first ever range of this type of cookware to the market in 1986. This revolutionised the cookware industry by establishing a new standard in superior performance. Over the last 30 years we have constantly developed and refined our hard anodized cookware manufacturing process, to ensure we bring you the best non-stick hard anodized cookware that offers superior cooking performance.
Why choose Stainless Steel?
Stainless steel is a hard metal that is proven to be resistant to scratches and dents, allowing for higher performance and longevity within your kitchen.
With its polished smoothed surface, stainless steel is renowned for being a stylish and contemporary choice for the kitchen - however at Circulon we also understand that cookware, no matter what the material, needs to perform to the highest standard. Therefore, we are one of the few cookware brands to produce fully non-stick stainless steel ranges.
All of our stainless steel pans feature fully encapsulated aluminium bases, to ensure our stainless steel cookware delivers excellent heat conductivity and distribution. Stainless steel is durable and easy to clean too – making it a convenient, culinary companion.
and don’t forget the finishing touches…
It’s not just the materials themselves that create a superior pan – we also include intricate details in the development of our cookware’s fixtures and fittings, always ensuring you benefit from functional, high quality kitchen solutions.
Stylish, easy-grip handles complete the stunning appearance of every Circulon pan. Whether its cast stainless steel for maximum durability, silicone for comfortable slip-free handles or heat resistant riveted handles for added strength and safety, we’ve got every preference covered. Reinforced, riveted handles on every one of our pans deliver strength, durability and safety giving you complete peace of mind in the kitchen.
Available in either polished stainless steel or tempered glass, our lids are another sign of Circulon quality. Regardless of the material you choose, the most important function of a lid is to trap steam and seal. Each of our pans’ accompanying lids have a snug fit, ensuring steam is safely trapped within the pan and that you benefit from locked in nutrients.
Tall Pan Profile
Featured in our Symmetry and Ultimum ranges, the tall pan profile provides extra capacity delivering the ultimate combination of professional performance and convenient cooking.
Healthy Cookware and Bakeware
Through years of research and testing we have developed our cookware to bring you a product that is healthy and safe, delivering the ultimate cooking experience.
That’s why all our Circulon products are PFAO, Lead and Cadmium free.
Our superior non-stick system is also PFOA free delivering maximum, safe performance and excellent durability. The non-stick system provides easy food release, hassle-free cleaning and is metal utensil and dishwasher safe.
With our innovative non-stick system you can be assured that our cookware will last longer. There’s less water and soap needed for cleaning too – helping you to be more energy efficient in the kitchen.
We’re proud of our health credentials and at Circulon we are dedicated to helping you lead a healthier lifestyle through fat-free healthy cooking.
Our signature circular grooves are cleverly designed to create air pockets for exceptional food release. The natural fats released during the cooking process land in the air pockets delivering enhanced flavours and cook food to perfection. This ingenious process ensures there’s little or no need for oil, which makes for healthier dishes every time whatever your culinary creation.
