Circulon Cookware

Circulon has been a respected name in cookware for over 20 years. Recently Circulon cookware has grown into the largest selling line of cookware globally. In addition to traditional pots and pans, Circulon also produces other culinary products to round out your kitchen with style, durability and gourmet level tools.


In 1985 Circulon cookware was born, being made by the Meyer Corporation from hard anodized nonstick aluminum. This design was very strong and provided the all-important heat distribution that cooks everywhere appreciate. Of course, the non-stick feature was a big selling point for time-pressed home cooks, and it remains a feature that consumers adore.
  • Circulon offered a 10 year no-stick guarantee. It was the first of its type in the industry
  • The development of the Circulon non-stick system was unique enough to be patented
  • Circulon was the first company to offer hard anodized cookware with colored exteriors
  • Circulon offers nonstick stainless steel and hard anodized electric cookware
  • Circulon has a dishwasher safe line that’s also suitable for all stove types
Effectively, Circulon combines convenience with performance and a very professional product. Nonetheless, you do not have to be a restaurant owner or a chef to enjoy the versatility and quality of Circulon in your own home.

Online Support

The Meyer Corporation doesn’t leave consumers wanting for information. If you go to their website you’ll find a variety of online support. With a click or two you can get replacement parts for even hard-to-find items. You’ll also find information on caring for your cookware and helps and hints for maintaining the nonstick surface for many years to come.


Circulon cookware has a limited lifetime guarantee should the product be shown defective in materials or workmanship. Note that this only applies to the original purchaser. The limit to this warranty is that if a consumer uses cooking sprays in the pot, or overheats the pan, they void the guarantee.

Additionally, the company does not cover misuse of the product, commercial use, or damages that happen during kitchen accidents. Should the item in question be out of production, the company offers items of similar value / function instead.

What Consumers are Saying

The vast majority of people who have purchased one of the Circulon cookware sets have been happy with this product. They feel that the company’s promise of a long lasting nonstick surface holds up to the test of time.

However, more advanced cooks may find that the lower heating levels necessary for such pans limits certain types of creations (deglazing, for example, can be tricky). Having said that, for the average home, Circulon is a good name trusted by many.
