A superb quality 4 piece pan set with a RRP of £265.
Been looking for a set for a while to treat the wife and these have just been ordered.
Ace reviews from every site I have seen them on and a recent Which? Best Buy.
Incidentally I ordered mine from a different site that price matched the house makers price, so that I could collect from a local department store.

Infinite is a much better set in quality

Had these for 3 months and took them back to Costco because the non stick coating was wearing already.

definitely not, these are from a different range and much inferior in quality. I had a look at these before I bought the infinite collection.Make sure you compare like for like!

The wife washes them anyway so quality less of an issue for me.

what a lucky wife you have, getting treats like this :-)

Really good quality pans well worth the price

The guarantee is not that good. I copied this from the makers website. Normal wear and tear is excluded. That makes the lifetime guarantee useless to me.

This guarantee does not cover damage caused by normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse or commercial use. Stains, discolouration or damage from overheating, or discolouration caused by dishwasher use are not covered by this guarantee. Incidental or consequential damages are expressly excluded from this guarantee.

Just looked at the Which web site and the Circulon is nine times the price of the cheapest best buy and four times the price of the highest scoring best buy.

Depends whether you are comparing the RRP as Which do, or you are comparing the price of 4 pans at £118. Therefore an average of £29 per pan. This is less than double the price of the winning best buy, a Prestige at £17.
I know which I would prefer to buy!

You are comparing a single pan price with a 4 piece set price. If you were buying 4 Prestige pans discounts are always available, so your not comparing like with like. Prestige own web site selling 4 piece set for £31 inc. del. That's £7.50 a pan compared to £29 using your method. That is a massive difference and the Circulon "Lifetime" guarantee con, excluding the most likely reason that a quality pan needs to be replaced (wear and tear). So when the non-stick stops working you will have to buy a new one.
As I can buy four Prestige pans for your one I know which I would opt for.

You're missing the point! This is a deals website. This is a good deal!

If someone posts a deal for a Ferrari at less than 50% of it's RRP it's a good deal. There's no point in saying ahhhh but you could have 4 Yugo Zastava for the same price.
Unless you are into false economy of course. Still, there's plenty of freedom of choice - you buy your cheap pans and I've bought the good ones. Thanks for your 'valuable' contribution!

If Circulon are so good why do they give such a worthless guarantee and if the Prestige are not the good ones then why would Which say they are the best buy in their tests, tests which include Circulon?
So I could take your uneducated wild guess that Circulon are better or the word of the independent Consumer Association (Which) that have done actual tests proving Prestige are a better buy. So thanks for your input, but no thanks.
