I love to cook and recently I had the wonderful opportunity to try out the Circulon ScratchDefense A1 Series skillet! I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and it has quickly become my favourite cookware piece in the kitchen. Its durability and scratch-resistant surface makes it an easy go-to pan. What’s even better is that I can confidently use metal utensils with it, making cooking and cleanup a breeze.


Its durable construction and scratch-resistant surface make it suitable for various cooking techniques, from searing and sautéing to frying. The skillet heats evenly, ensuring consistent cooking. I used it for making steaks, omelets, pancakes and green beans! The versatility combined with its non-stick properties makes cooking simple yet functional.


Speaking of non-stick, one of the standout features of the ScratchDefense A1 Series skillet is its exceptional non-stick coating. This coating allows for cooking with minimal oil, making it ideal for healthier cooking options. Food slides off effortlessly and doesn’t stick like other pans. Cleaning the skillet is a breeze as there is no need for heavy scrubbing – definitely helpful for minimising clean up time.



The pan’s ergonomic design and comfortable handle make it easy to manoeuvre, even when dealing with larger quantities of food. The handle doesn’t get hot which is super helpful when you’re trying to flip a steak or pancake so you don’t have to go searching for an oven mitt or tea towel.


Its compatibility with all stovetops, including induction, adds to its usability and versatility in any kitchen setting. Additionally, the skillet is oven-safe so it’s perfect to finish a seared steak in the oven or make a frittata – it really does provide flexibility for various cooking methods.


It’s also light weight but that doesn’t compromise the heat distribution which is important to help cook your food evenly. The cherry on top, is that it is dishwasher safe which is a real bonus for reducing cleaning up after cooking!

One to add to your kit?

Yes! A good skillet in your kitchen cupboard is a must and one that is durable and easy to clean is what this pan delivers. Circulon is known for their quality cookware – I have had a saucepan from the brand for the last ten years that is still going strong so you can’t go wrong with this range.
