Good topic for your first post.

Unfortunately the title doesn't include Makro, and the link doesn't work.

However these are excellent pans, at an excellent price. I use Meyer's Analon pans, and you can't beat cooking with hard anodised Aluminium. Circulon and Analon - best pans you can get.

Not everyone has access to Makro, but that is where my Analon's came from.

How do you get into Makro?

I bought a Circulon frying pan a few years back. It lasted all of a couple of months before the non-stick surface wore away and anything and everything stuck to it, despite its being treated with kid gloves. No better than the pans you can pick up in Poundland. Only heavier.

Daft question perhaps, but forgive my ignorance...
I understand about the benefits of hard anodised aluminium.
Are these pans a hard-anodised finish all over, or is there a conventional non-sick coating on the inside of the pan that will eventually peel off?

I think you must have been extremely unlucky, I hope you returned it for a refund.

My Analons are 5+ years old and are as good as new. I have a Circulon grill pan of the same age and that is still like new, whatever gets burnt onto it just washes off with warm water and a sponge. My mother's Circulons must be more than ten years ol and are still in great condition.

If you are happy cooking with Poundland pans then that is great, certainly cheaper, but I can assure you that Circulon and Analon pans are amongst the very best you can get. It looks like yours was definitely faulty.

Hard anodised exterior, with a very superior non-stick coating on the inside, you can read the techy stuff on the Circulon or Analon web sites. The coating is that good that there is a steel spatula in the Analon range that is safe to use with the pans.

The Analons have a unique non-stick coating, whereas the Ciculons also have a ridged interior which prolongs the life of the non-stick coating.

Whether it is non-sick will depend on your cooking skills.:-D:-D:-D

I never use anything with non stick coating ever. We are non stick mad in the UK. I hate the stuff mainly becasue its poisonous when hot, if your cooking anything that needs heat then this not the medium to use. But for the money its a deal a better deal is tesco Tri Ply Stainless steel set of 3 saucepans for £50, sold seperate are £75, get a stainless steel saute pan and a cast iron skillet and your home n dry for 90% of things :-) Anyhoots thanks for the info as my mother in law wants some new pans and she wont use nothing bar non stick - will have a nose in makro tomorrow ;-) Thxs

OK, I'm curious now. What sort of cooking doesn't involve heat? :thinking:
