Why Circulon?

Almost 30 years ago, in 1985, Circulon revolutionized the industry by introducing the first hard-anodized non-stick cookware and the TOTAL Non-Stick System of circles. When Circulon was first introduced, the system was so effective in extending the durability of non-stick cookware, the pans were proven to be at least three times more abrasion resistant than any other non-stick cookware on the market. The success and innovation of the system garnered a patent from the US government. The hallmark of Circulon is its visionary TOTAL Non-Stick system. This patented system features a series of raised non-stick circles on the pan surface that reduce the amount of non-stick in contact with cooking utensils, minimizing surface abrasion and maximizing durability.
