When I asked Circulon Canada if they’d like to take part in our holiday gift guide I had no way of knowing that my stove would be ripped out on the same day that a pot arrived at my door to review.
Without much notice, I was told by my landlord that our very old electric oven (which was at countertop level) and seperate stovetop were being replaced with an induction range. As it turns out, Circulon Canada’s cookware is perfect for induction cooktops. The 6 quart straining stockpot with lid from their Prime Collection is now the only piece of cookware in my home that can be used on my stove.
Luckily for me, this stockpot is very versatile. Not only is it great for use on any cooktop, but it also has a locking lid which acts as a strainer. I have less dishes to wash when I cook with this pot, as I don’t need a colander, and can serve food from it directly instead of transferring it to a different dish. The second time that I made pasta in it, I was having a very rushed day. I threw a handful of dry noodles and a bunch of frozen meatballs together into the pot of boiling water. After locking the lid and draining the water, I dumped a jar of pasta sauce in, put the pot on medium for a couple of minutes to heat it, and had a complete meal using only one dish.
I love that Circulon Canada’s Prime Collection cookware is even oven-safe up to 400°F, which means that less dishes will be taking up room in my cupboards too!
So the pot is great at getting dirty. But what about cleaning it? Circulon cookware is dishwasher safe; and when I washed the stockpot by hand, the pasta sauce which I’d left sitting on it for a couple of hours wiped easily from the non-stick surface.
