Circulon Acclaim 13 Piece Cookware Set (Black)
on 12 December 2013
The set consists of 8 non stick pans and 5 glass lids which should cover most peoples cooking requirements and certainly cover ours. The steel handles are covered in a silicone cover to prevent you burning your hands and are a longer length compared to our old pans so we keep having to remember to check where we are gripping the handle so as not to miss the silicone part but now that we are getting used to the pans I find that I like the longer handle length.
Unlike most non-stick pans the box etc advises that you can use metal utensils on them and that these would be safe however I am a bit dubious about this and so to err on the side of caution we are still using plastic or wooden utensils with them just to be safe. Also we are taking care when cleaning them and ensuring not to use a metal scourer etc so as to protect the non-stick finish as we have inadvertently damaged pans in the past by using metal utensils and harsh abrasives when cleaning so have definitely learnt our lesson!
The pans are a good weight whilst not being too heavy and they really do look very smart in the kitchen. The handles also have a hook on the end of them incase you wish to hang your pans and as these are so nice looking I am seriously considering getting a pan hanger instead of using the normal pan drawer. A really good set of pans which would make a brilliant replacement or starter set and having had both cheap and expensive pans in the past I personally feel it is more cost effective to buy a decent set rather than having to replace cheap sets more regularly as the better sets really do seem to last when taken care of. I shall update this review should any faults etc develop on the pan set and so unless this review is edited the pans are working perfectly and are still in good condition. I fully foresee these lasting a good while as the quality of them seems to speak for itself.
