Circulon Pans: Circulon 3qt Covered Saute Pan Review

circulon-saute-panMy saute pan would have to be one of the most used pans in my kitchen. It is just so versatile. The Circulon 3qt Covered Saute Pan is a little beauty.  The non-stick surface and aluminum core make this a real quality piece of cookware that you will use time and time again.

Circulon pans are good quality, strong and durable. The aluminum core means that foods will cook evenly with no hotpots. In other words, you won’t get the problem of part of the food being cooked and the rest raw.

What We Like

  • First of all this looks good. The stainless steel lid and handles and the charcoal grey exterior give this a stylish look and will look exceptionally good hanging from a pot rack.
  • The helper handle makes it easy to lift the pan from the stove.
  • This pan is dishwasher safe which you don’t get very often with non-stick cookware.
  • Clean up is easy with this non-stick surface.
  • Suitable for induction, glass top and conventional stove tops.
  • This Calphalon pan is oven safe to 500F.

What We Don’t Like

  • The price may be an issue for some at just over $100, however Circulon guarantee that their non-stick surface will outlast all other non-stick.

All Clad Wok Review: All Clad 12in Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Wok

all-clad-wok1I’d have to say that my favorite stainless steel cookware brand is All Clad. The precision, quality and care that goes into their cookware makes it worth every cent. All Clad is not cheap but you get what you pay for with All Clad and that is a lifetimes worth of use.

This All Clad wok is no exception. At around the hundred dollar mark at Cooking.com for All Clad that is a bargain.

What We Like

  • This wok has an aluminum core which means that foods cook evenly without hot spots. You won’t have the problem of having a mix of burnt and undercooked foods – it will all cook evenly. If you haven’t used good quality cookware in the past you will be surprised at how much improved your cooking results will be.
  • This wok comes with a reversible base ring on which the wok sits on when cooking. This can be reversed so to accommodate high or low heat cooking.
  • This wok comes with a tempura rack which basically drains fried foods whilst keep them warm at the same time.
  • This wok just looks damn good.

What We Don’t Like

  • The handles on this wok can get hot so you will need to use oven mitts.
