Best Cooking Temperature for Nonstick
Circulon nonstick cookware should never be overheated and therefore low-to-medium heat is recommended for optimal cooking and extending the life of nonstick coatings.
For over 35 years, Circulon products have been rigorously tested at every stage of production to ensure that you receive the safest and most durable nonstick cookware possible.
Nonstick coatings are considered safe for normal kitchen use and can be used at temperatures up to approximately 400° F (204° C).
Pre-Heating Nonstick Cookware
Circulon nonstick cookware, including ScratchDefense™ Nonstick, Hard-Anodized Nonstick and Hybrid Stainless Steel Nonstick products should not be used at temperatures above 400ºF.
Due to the quality of materials and superior heat distribution of Circulon cookware, high temperatures can be reached within minutes when a dry or empty pan is left on a hot burner or in a hot oven. Nonstick products should not be left unattended or allowed to get very hot without food in the pan.
In general, even premium nonstick cookware can begin to deteriorate and lose performance at extremely high temperatures. Our products are covered by a limited lifetime warranty when proper use and care are taken.
Absolutely. Unlike other cookware that claims to be dishwasher ScratchDefense™ pans are purposefully engineered to be dishwasher safe. Below are 3 key features that ensure their durability, safety and performance will endure even after thousands of dishwasher cycles.
- ScratchDefense™ pots and pans are designed with tough, aerospace-grade material designed to withstand high temperature. So from cooking to cleaning, you can be assured your cookware will maintain its exceptional nonstick properties.
- Additionally, ScratchDefense™ pans feature a solid stainless steel base from edge to edge that prevents rust and corrosion on the underside of the cookware.
- To further enhance their dishwasher safety, ScratchDefense™ pans have reinforced rolled rims. The toughened, rolled rim design is engineered to eliminate sharp, exposed aluminum edges that can cause serious injury.
