As pioneers of non-stick, we guarantee our products will last however it is also important you also look after your cookware in the best way possible because we believe that if you “Look after your cookware and it will look after you.” To prevent food burning onto your pan again here’s some top tips.

 

  • Due to our high quality materials you shouldn’t need to use a high heat with our pans. Once your pan is at the right temperature, stick to a medium or low heat and you’ll be amazed at the way these innovative products retain their heat for consistent cooking.
  •  
  • Circulon pans can cook food 20% faster due to the superior materials throughout the pan. So keep this is mind with any recipe you’re following.
  •  
  • Our high-low groove non-stick system within our pans means food shouldn’t stick, but we still recommend cleaning thoroughly after use. A quick wipe may leave your pans looking clean but tiny food particles can remain. These deposits could eventually carbonise on the surface of the non-stick preventing it from working effectively.
  •  
  • Clean thoroughly with soapy water. Wash around the pan in a circular motion using a brush or nylon sponge. You should only need a light touch and no abrasive pads which could deteriorate and damage the interior of the pan in the long run.
