Think about cookware that is a genuine blend of efficiently nonstick, tasteful style and reasonable price, it must be a dream gear---This is what we talking about Circulon Contempo.
What we like:
At the first blush, the design is predominantly eye-catching. Then the quality will make impressed. Heavy gauge of anodized brushed aluminum make more sturdiness, as well as raise cooking performance. With 3 layers of nonstick coated by Dupont Autograph nonstick, the Circulon Contempo fulfills effective nonstick---totally not sticking and scratching. This is a rare med-price cookware that allows using metal utensils. Besides, itís compatible with most burners, excepting induction stove, however.
The cooking ability is quite beyond our expectation. Among medium-ranged nonstick, it does beautifully work for evenly and quickly heating, with oven-safe to 400įF. The TOTAL Food Release system, the circular ridges on the bottom of the pans, helps make the superior results as advertised. We love the weight the pans, which can be carried one-handed with food, but not feel like junks. The clean and care is breezy normal, except for dishwasher.
The handles and grips are a work of art, as well as good agronomic. The stainless dual rivets make extra strength while silicone wrapped grips prevent too-hot-to-touch experience. The size is slightly small but enough for daily meals of small family. The whole finish, as mentioned, is undoubtedly striking with contemporary-modernized style. Lastly, the price is somewhat attractive.
For more reviews, from expertís view like Good Housekeeping
, the Circulon Contempo got the seal of approval at A- rating, for good matching of bold style and performance. The Cooking Light Magazine
suggested 12Ē skillet as a best nonstick pan. Also, weíve found very high ratings from real users around here.
What we don't like:
Thereíre two main downsides. The first one is itís not for induction burner. If itís your constraint, itís better to further on induction-ready stainless steel cookware or consider Circulon Symmetry
instead. Another one, itís not dishwasher-safe, but most reviewers confirmed for breezy cleaning as totally nonstick finish. Other drawbacks are found scatted, which are mostly up to personal preference, such as handle decoration or small size.
|Overall, if youíre looking for practical nonstick gear for amateurs or daily home chefs, the Circulon Contempo is an interesting compromise between utility, style and budget, recommended by Good Housekeeping and Cooking Light.
