Circulon Infinite Hard Anodized Nonstick Pros & Cons

Circulon Infinite Hard Anodized Nonstick reviews
Circulon Infinite Hard Anodized Nonstick has had a walloping seventy reviews from Amazon, and only a few of them can be presented here. Among them:
“I absolutely love Circulon 80580 cookware! It does everything that’s promised, and goes into the dishwasher too! Believe me; this can be a very important feature if quick and easy cleanup is important you. Yet, that is not my only reason for giving this product a five star rating. I’ve owned many brands of cookware over the years, and for one reason or another, they have fallen short of my expectations. Yes, even my Calphalon cookware can’t hold a candle to Circulon 80580. For instance, I ‘ve had a couple Calphalon frying pans for more than a year now. I tend not to use them because their non-stick properties are lacking— so much so that making eggs “over easy” is almost impossible. I ‘ve tried several different things to correct this problem, but no matter what I’ve tried, food continues stick, which not only makes cooking more difficult, but it makes cleanup more difficult as well. Another problem that I have is that the bottoms of my Calphalon pans have a slight curve to them; as a result they do n’t sit firmly on my burners. On the other hand, however, each of my Circulon 80580 cookware pieces have a flat bottom, which allows them to sit firmly on my burners, and I never have a problem with food sticking to them.”
“This is hands down the best cookware I have ever used. It heats evenly and quickly on my induction cooktop. The cleanup is easy and to my absolute disblief it comes out of the diswasher looking the same as the day I took it out of the box. Five months later I am still very happy with this cookware. I do a lot of baking and entertaining at the holidays and the other day made homemade caramels and it was so easy— between the awesome heat control of my induction cooktop and the heavy bottom and non-stick surface of my saucepan I had no problems at all. I also melted some chocolate for dipping and same great performance, with the low even heating of the induction and the thick heavy pan bottom I was able to melt the chocolate right in the pan without doing anything special.”
The Circulon Infinite Hard Anodized Nonstick product has been given an overall rating of four and a half stars.
A few customers have found the Circulon 80580 inferior to other similar products, though. One buyer was “profoundly disappointed” with the Circulon 80580 that he bought; the coating started coming off. Another found that his pots he got were too heavy to lift. Their fellow customers responded to these complaints by saying that the pots need to be handled right to last.
Notwithstanding these negative remarks, if you are looking for the kinds of cooking pots that suit all your cooking needs, then make no delay— buy yourself a set of Circulon Infinite Hard Anodized Nonstick and see for yourself how well they will work.
