The TOTAL non-stick system
Continuing the durability aspect, the pans also use a special TOTAL non-stick system that helps resist wear and tear to a fairly high degree. No matter how strong your cookware set is, there will be times when it succumbs to minor dents and marks. However, the TOTAL system actively resists staining, chipping, scratching, and surface abrasion.
That makes it particularly useful for those who like to cook with metal utensils. As a bonus, the system, true to its name, does a good job of unsticking food.
All the sauces, oils, condiments, cheeses, and burnt bits seem to slide off the surface with ease. No matter what you throw at it, it will be able to get through.
This is perhaps the best aspect of the TOTAL system because it allows for easy cleaning and simple cooking, and further protects each pan. Plus, the entire set is dishwasher-safe.
Handle the heat
Two other features worth commenting on are the game’s versatility and its ability to take advantage of the heat. All the pieces in the set conduct heat easily and efficiently across the entire cooking surface. The pans not only heat up quickly, saving you time, but they make sure every meal turns out exactly as planned.
The stainless steel bases promote even heating in a way that greatly increases performance. Many games boast of that feature but often fall short in one area or another. Maybe they have hot spots or maybe they get too hot too fast. The Infinite set has no such problems. Fast heating surfaces work hard to provide you with a great meal every time.
As a bonus, the collection is also suitable for all kitchens. It works on ceramic, glass, and induction hobs and is oven safe up to 500℉ (260℃). That incredible range gives you the ability to solely cook in the oven if you so choose, but it also means you can sear on the stovetop and finish your dish later. It even gives you the option to keep your food in the oven while you prepare other parts of your dinner.
A bit of everything
It’s not often that cooking games hit the spot. However, there is no aspect in which the Circulon Infinite game falls short. It’s durable, looks great, feels good to use, and has the versatility that many premium games lack.
This is one of the best collections for home cooks who want their pots and pans to do most of the heavy lifting. No matter what you like to cook or what your style of cooking is, there is sure to be something you like.
