Last weekend, I purchased this unit which claimed to be non-stick and metal utensil safe. I thought it would be ideal for cooking bacon. So far I have made two batches of bacon. I cook on a Jenn-Aire gas cooktop, and cook bacon on med-low. The non-stick worked really well, but there is a problem.
After only two uses, the griddle has severely warped. If there is anything that irritates me, it is warped pans. This griddle has bowed up in the center by a full 1/8th inch. I consider this to be totally unacceptable and is a sign of poor quality metal or heat treatment during manufacture.
I would not recommend this particular item to anyone, and would question buying any Circulon products in the future.
Perhaps the store I bought it from will take it back. I hope so.
