If you’ve treated yourself to some new Circulon cookware, here’s our tips on how to keep them looking great and lasting a lifetime.

So, you’ve decided to treat yourself to some new Circulon pans. Congratulations! We hope you’re looking forward to a lifetime of great cooking with your new purchase. As pioneers of non-stick, we guarantee our products will last you a lifetime. However, it's also important that you know how to look after your cookware in the best way possible - after all, if you know how to cook after your cookware, it will look after you.

We’re sure you’re already planning which delicious recipes you’re going to be using them for. But before you do that, take a look at these tips to ensure that you get the best out of your pans, each and every time.

Season your pans

One of the best things about Circulon pans is that you can use them to cook food without using a drop of oil. But, before you start cooking, it’s a good idea to season them. Pour a tablespoon of oil onto the pan’s surface, and swirl it around so it gets into every nook and cranny. Then, heat the pan for 30 - 60 seconds, remove from the heat and let it cool.

The idea is to bolster the nonstick surface by adding a layer of fat. The oil adds an extra layer of protection against oxidation. Do this once and you can use them to cook delicious, oil-free meals again and again and again.

Choose your tools wisely

Knives have a lot of uses, but cooking is not one of them. Cutting your food when it’s in the pan can damage the non-stick coating. 

For best results, switch to wooden or silicone alternatives. Using these will help to extend the life of your cookware ensuring you get the best out of it for years to come.

Banish cooking sprays

You may love your cooking spray, but sadly, it doesn’t love your non-stick pans. While they contain oil, many of them also contain lecithin, an emulsifier which builds up on the surface of your pan and can become impossible to remove.

As an alternative, try an oil mister, or dip a paper towel into your cooking oil of choice and rub it over the (cold) surface of the pan prior to cooking.
