Circulon Symmetry Chocolate Cookware Reviews by Users
Most users compliment for its nonstick coating. It releases food easily and you can cook anything with it without worrying about the cleaning up process afterwards. It requires no soaking or scrubbing.
It has a thick impact bonded bottom which gives it a good weight and even heating. It would not burn food as easily as those with thin bottom. Most users comment that the cookware set feel solid in the hands and also weighs about 25 lbs, which is heavier than the cheaper T-fal Ultimate and Rachael Ray Hard Anodized II sets which both weigh less than 20 lbs.
Most users don’t like the fact that it is priced a bit expensive compared to its competitors with similar features.
Though not widespread, yet a few reviews stated this problem. A few users noted that the nonstick coating may peel off after more than 3 to 4 years of usage.
Comparison With Its Competitors
While there are other brands in the market which you can compare this product with. The products that come near to its features are mostly from the same brand. So let’s try to compare them:
Circulon Symmetry Vs Premier Professional
Unlike the Circulon symmetry, Circulon Premier Professional is a 13-piece cookware set and is more expensive than the former. It possesses every other features like the Circulon symmetry, in that it has heavy-duty, hard-anodized construction, is durable, non-stick, and has tight-fitting tempered glass lids.
In case you need more cooking ware for your kitchen, you may wish to consider Circulon Premier Professional, as it will make a great delicacy. It is 30 pounds in weight and has a limited lifetime warranty whereas, the Circulon symmetry is 24.2 pounds in weight and has a hassle-free lifetime warranty.
Circulon Symmetry Vs Infinite
Circulon Infinite is the cheapest of the set. Unlike the Circulon symmetry, Circulon Infinite is a 10-piece cookware set, and less expensive. Except for the lesser number of items in its set, it possesses every other aspects of what the Circulon symmetry have.
If you have a smaller kitchen but need a standard cooking ware for your kitchen, then you can go for Circulon Infinite. Otherwise both cookware sets will fulfil your needs. It is 23.1pounds in weight whereas, the Circulon symmetry is 24.2pounds in weight.
Comparing with its competitors, Circulon Symmetry chocolate 11-piece nonstick cookware set is the most outstanding, it has induction stove compatibility whereas the competitors do not.
It weighs lesser than a competitor of the same cookware set number, with an oven safe of 500°F which is above that of both competitors.
