They feature a non-stick coating, both inside and outside called the ‘TOTAL Nonstick System’, which reduces surface abrasion and offers food releasing capabilities that minimizes food sticking to the pan.

Is the non-stick coating Circulon uses safe?

The non-stick coating is PFOA free, Lead Free and Cadmium Free. Regulatory agencies worldwide have found that PTFE manufactured without the component PFOA presents no risk to consumers and it’s been in the market for over 70 years. Circulon’s Total ® non-stick system uses only technologies to make PTFE non stick without PFOA (perfluoroctanoic acid) making the product completely safe and non-toxic.

Pros: 90% of people who use this range report that the non-stick coating works well. Living up to claims by the manufacturer that the product provides ‘extraordinary food release’.

They also appreciate that the non-stick coating makes clean up a breeze, especially for food items that are normally difficult to clean, like scrambled eggs.

Customers note that the pans cook food evenly. The pans distribute heat evenly throughout, thanks to the heavy base.

The pans are surprisingly lightweight, despite the heavy base.

While the cookware is dishwasher safe, they’re incredibly easy to clean by hand.

*Make sure you check the size of the pans meet your needs and cooking style in the product description.

Other customers reported that the non-stick coating on their pans scratched up easily, and began chipping only after 10 months of regular use, or that the non-stick coating didn’t hold up to moderate cleaning. We noted that it was reported that they tried contacting Circulon and felt the customer service at that time was disappointing.

Care suggestions

Although these pots and pans can withstand tough treatment and can be cleaned in the dishwasher, the non-stick qualities make them very easy and quick to hand wash. Hand washing pots and pans extends the life of non-stick coated cookware.

We also suggest instead of using metal utensils use wooden, silicone or plastic to maintain optimum non stick qualities and avoid scratches.
