Circulon TOTAL Food Release System

Ever since Circulon introduced the world to hard anodised non-stick cookware more than 30 years ago, it has continued to push the envelope in cookware technology and engineering. The result?  Time-saving cooking solutions of stunning quality and unparalleled durability.

Circulon features the technologically superior TOTAL® Non-stick System which combines a relaxed hi-low wave technology with the most advanced non-stick coating available.

Food cooks (and releases) on the entire surface of the pan, but raised circles (the “Hi” area) allow a fraction of the cooking surface to take the abuse of utensils, protecting the majority of the cooking surface (the “Low” area) from abrasion. The result? Unparalleled cooking performance and non-stick durability.

Unlike ordinary hard-anodised pans, Circulon features a non-stick exterior, thanks to its proprietary technology that applies the non-stick coating to both the inside and the outside of the pan.  Not only does this make clean up a breeze, but it also means that the pan also won’t stain, scratch or chip (thanks to the hard-anodising process) and that your Circulon cookware will look beautiful for years to come.


Total non stick system 



Is non-stick toxic?

Circulon is dedicated to helping consumers lead a healthier lifestyle through fat-free healthy cooking.  The Circulon TOTAL® non-stick system is completely safe and non- toxic.

Regulatory agencies worldwide have concluded that PTFE non-stick manufactured without the use of the component called PFOA is not a risk to consumers.

TOTAL® non-stick coatings are completely PFOA free. The manufacturer of the non-stick coating on Circulon only use non-stick technologies to make PTFE non-stick without PFOA. 

PTFE is short for polytetrafluoroethylene, which is a slippery, tough and non-flammable synthetic material known as the non-stick coating on a pan. PFOA is short for perfluorooctanoic acid, a synthetic chemical compound that, in the past, was used as a component of PTFE. 

Circulon's TOTAL® non-stick coatings are formulated to resist peeling or chipping with normal use.  However, in the event that particles of  the non-stick are accidently eaten, there is no cause for concern. Circulon TOTAL® non-stick system is non-toxic and inert. If accidently eaten, the non-stick particles will pass directly through the body and will not be absorbed.

PTFE non-stick coatings have been in the market for over 7 decades with a superb record of consumer safety.
