Kind of. The “hills” and “valleys” in the Circulon are both coated with the same nonstick. So that on the “hills” could be worn off by utensils. And solid food is perched atop the “hills”, allowing drainage, which discourages the steaming effect of a flat PTFE surface, hence more browning.
The Black Cube design is much smoother than Circulon’s. You can barely feel any difference between the high and low spots. And because the lattice is SS, there’s nothing to wear off of the “hills”; the nonstick is all nestled down where most utensils can’t get at it.
I suspect the Circulon would be better at browning, and that the BC might be longer-lived.
