Amazon.com Review

The sides of this 10-inch nonstick griddle are low and slope gently, so your crêpes slide out without falling apart and your pancakes flip easily. No matter what you're cooking, you're guaranteed quick and even heat distribution, easy food release, and simple cleaning, thanks to the pan's three layers: an aluminum core, a hard-anodized exterior, and a reinforced nonstick surface. The aluminum core provides rapid heat conduction, while the hard-anodized exterior increases the griddle's durability. The nonstick surface allows you to cook low-fat meals without using any oil or butter. The griddle includes a collector's edition recipe card. As with all nonstick surfaces, you should not use metal utensils or abrasive cleaners with the griddle; doing so could void the lifetime warranty. --Laura Cuthbert ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great little gem for the kitchen, at a great price!
I picked up this Commercial Nonstick skillet along with several other pieces of Calphalon's open stock collection, and I have been impressed with every piece I've gotten. This is great for burgers as well as omeletes and pancakes. About the only "problem" with it is that I'm not accustomed quite yet to the high quality found in Calphalon, and I didn't expect the burgers to brown on a non-stick surface as quickly as they did, so I wound up with two rather rare burgers as a result of fearing that I would burn them. Now that I see how Calphalon's nonstick line cooks, I have had more success, and now I have beautifully cooked hamburgers every time.
This is nonstick, so you do have to treat it with kid gloves, but as long as you use nylon or wooden utensils, do not overheat the pan, and don't run it through the dishwasher, this pan should last you a lifetime. I'm so glad I bought this, because I know that Calphalon's line of Collector's Edition products are only available for a limited time each year. I'm glad I didn't miss out on this beauty before it was gone forever!

5-0 out of 5 stars My "new" favorite pan.........
I can't say enough great things about this pan. I bought it as a low cost alternative to an omelet pan and it has far exceeded my expectations. It is absolutely wonderful to cook omelets in -or any egg dish. They come out perfectly every time and the non-stick coating and low sides allow you to simply slide the eggs out of the pan onto the waiting plate. It is the perfect size to heat a solitary tortillas too! This size is wonderful for cooking a serving or two and should be quite useful in anyone's kitchen. Once I heat up the pan I can make individual omelets in a couple minutes so it is useful for a larger family. It has the weight, riveted handle, etc that you expect from a quality Calphalon product. A great price for a great pan - everyone needs at least one non-stick pan and this is a wonderful choice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Accurate info for prospective buyer research
If you are considering the purchase of this pan or any of the caphalon products in this line. Totally disregard the Toledo vs China comments. They have no validity WHATSOEVER! I've purchased three of these pans (2 Toledo's, 1 China), and there is absolutely no difference in quality, thickness, or weight. I've also purchased the Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 2-1/2-Quart Shallow Saucepans with Lids (1 Toledo, 1 China), the Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 9-Inch, 2-Quart Chef's Skillet with Lid (2 China, 1 Toledo) and again,there is absolutely no difference in quality, thickness, or weight. There is a difference in thickness & weight, if you compare them to other caphalon product lines. However, that is not to say they are inferior. They have a nice thickness and weight, great heat retention and dispersment. Awesome for browning, making sauces, stir frying, etc. If you follow the instructions for use, you will have no problems with cleaning,food release, or sticking. I have read most of the reviews, and the bad ones can be attributed to two things: 1. We alway seem to think stuff is way better made in America ... not true in this particular case. Those who made statements about Toledo pans vs China pans, could not own pans from both plants. 2. Complaints about sticking, or cleaning, ...they didnt follow the SIMPLE instructions. For the price, brand, warranty, and quality, this is one of the better kitchen purchases. Oh...I'm all for buying "made in America"!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Pan
This pan has become one of the most useful pans I have. It is of heavy construction, heats evenly, and the non-stick surface is great. The sides are low, but it serves as a good griddle, is useful for breakfast, cooking 2 or 3 eggs easily or about 4 pieces of french toast.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great pan

Amazon.com Review

You just might find yourself using this versatile piece of cookware more than any other in your kitchen. Reducing sauces, braising meats, boiling pasta, browning chicken: this pot can do it all, on the stovetop or in the oven. This saucier has straight sides and a wide profile, and two sturdy double-riveted handles make it safer and easier to lift when full. (Don't forget that the cast stainless-steel handles remain cool on the stove, but heat right up in the oven.) Like all of the products in Calphalon's commercial hard-anodized series, it distributes heat efficiently, so foods brown quickly and cook uniformly. In fact, try cooking over a lower setting than you customarily use; Calphalon cookware conducts heat so well that it's easy to overdo the first few times around. Unlike cookware coated with a synthetic nonstick finish, the hard-anodized surface won't chip, crack, or peel if you use a metal spatula, and it doesn't react with acidic foods such as citrus or tomato. All of Calphalon's commercial hard-anodized cookware comes with a lifetime warranty, and if treated with care, it'll last as long as you do. Always wash this cookware by hand with mild cleansers, and don't place a hot pan in cold water--it could warp. --Mary Park ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the best cookware
This is not my first piece of Calphalon and it certainly will not be my last. I wasn't sure how large this saucier would be when I ordered it, and I still haven't found a place to store it in my limited cabinet space, but I have honestly had little need to store it since it works so well for most anything. It has a huge amount of surface area so it works well for searing and braising, but it is somewhat shallow so it is perfect for poaching eggs. Plus, this is an amazing price. Worth every penny.

5-0 out of 5 stars What's not to like?
Like all Calphalon Commercial pieces, you are getting a high-performance, sturdily constructed tool that will make you a better cook.

This saucier is wider and shorter than a typical stockpot, ensuring maximum heat transfer from the burners. It's great for such dishes as making chicken stock -- You can brown the chicken on the stovetop, then deglaze with water, etc., for a darker stock. Great for making soups, cooking squash, chili, etc. (Consider topping with cheese and sticking under the broiler for a few minutes to brown -- it's over safe to 700!)
The combination of Calphalon's superior aluminum heat conduction and a wider top reduces liquids quickly, while cooks enjoy easy access into the pan -- something that can be tricky in a tall, narrow stockpot. Keep in mind that space can be an issue -- this stockpot can crowd out other pans on a small cooktop, and does take up an awful lot of space in your cupboard.

One caveat: As with all Calphalon, you can not put this in the dishwasher (even if you could fit it in). The machine will leach out the Calphalon coating, causing pits and discolorations and void the lifetime warranty to boot!

To clean, I find a little Bon Ami or Dormond cleaner and a Scotchguard green scrubber gets out anything without much fuss. Cleaning will be aided by proper deglazing. Also, you will find your food will stick less if the pan is preheated and if the food isn't ice cold when tossed in.

Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! Calphalon does it again & again!
I purchased (from Amazon) the Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 8 1/2 qt. Saucier pan last Christmas as a gift to myself! It arrived prior to Christmas, so I used it to cook a beef roast on Christmas day. We were in temporary housing and even with having to cook the roast on the stovetop (oven not working), we couldn't have asked for better results. Then after our move, I roasted a hen in this pan in the oven; the hen was so moist and tender - my husband raved over it - the first time in 20 years that he's actually enjoyed a roasted hen. On top of that, the gravy made in this pan is the best - deglazing is so easy! This is a really large pan, but the heat distribution is so superb, there was not a bit of a problem even cooking on a small stove top burner. I LOVE Calphalon, and the Commercial Hard Anodized is my favorite line. Every few weeks I'm looking for another piece to add to my collection and replace my old stainless cookware. You just can't go wrong with cookware of this quality, and I know it will be passed down to my daughter becasue it just doesn't wear out. What a value!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great size
This is the most versatile pot in my collection. I use it for everything from making marinara sauce to roasting my Thanksgiving turkey (a 25 pounder). I love the fact that the handles are heat resistant (unless you use the pot in the oven, of course). Some reviewers have complained about the size of this pot and insufficient heating. I have a fairly small stovetop, so to sufficiently heat the pot before using it, I turn the (gas) burner on high and test the perimeter of the pot by sprinkling water on it to test the temperature. Then I turn the temperature down to cook. This method has worked for me for over a year.

5-0 out of 5 stars have to give it 5 stars
This is the second peice of Calphalon commercial that is "NOT" nonstick that I have...Everything else is commercial nonstick, but there are times when you need this type of pot.
When you have to Braise a big roast for pot roast, or chicken etc.... I put a little olive oil in this and braise the roast, with vegies , wine etc, it makes the best french pot roast, with the stock to die for, then I finish it off in the oven for a couple of hours...yummmmm...

For some of you people that complained about this pot being too big for your stove top, cause you don't have the big burners, you can buy the Large Caphalon Defuser at William Sonoma, and you won't have that problem, it will cook everything on top of your stove even.
((Think the defuser is only made from calphalon for William Sonoma only))

If you soak this big pot you should not have any problem washing it, Just make sure you do not put this or the lid into the dishwasher, or you will ruin it and void out the warentee.

I think this is a must have, in your Calphalon Collection..I also payed less for this in amazon, but I hear that Calphalon is not going to be making there Hard-Anodized Cookware any longer, since they have come out with the Calphalon infused!!((call Calphalon and find out?))
Must say I love the Calphalon Commercial nonstick, but I do like the new handles better on the Calphalon infused.

Happy Cooking.... ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Works well, but mine was made in China - so-so workmanship.
I bought this pan based on the performance and construction of other Calphalon cookware I've purchased. However, as soon as I unpacked this one, it was apparent that the workmanship and finish was significantly below my other Calphalon pans. The pan rim was unevenly ground - the lid fits flat, but looks uneven when the lid is removed. The polished lid has numerous tiny pits and marks not found on my U.S. made Calphalon. I suppose this is one of the trade-offs for the great price, although if I were Calphalon, I'd market the China-made line under a different name if they can't maintain the quality standards of the Ohio made line.

I had previously purchased the 9" Commercial Nonstick Collector's Edition Everyday Pan with Lid from Amazon, which was made in the Ohio, and was very impressed with the contruction and finish. (It also works very well, but is a bit tippy on burners when empty.)

Cooking quality is fine so far. I hope the nonstick finish will prove as durable as the U.S. made pans.

The size, overall appearance, and dual loop handles allows this pan to work well as a serving piece on the table for casual dining.

5-0 out of 5 stars Calphalon, my Calphalon
This was my second Calphalon purchase and the first non-stick. I'm not a big fan of non-stick, but this is great. Use it almost everyday. We have a Vegetarian Communist in our house and sometimes it is necessary to cook the same thing in two different pans...this comes in really handy when I want to leave something cooking while I concentrate on real food. Never had anything stick to this or burn, looks great too, have actually brought it to the table and served from it. Makes a great frittata, but be careful if you use it in the oven, not for use under the broiler. The handles get VERY hot. I knew that when I bought it, but just last night I picked it up without a pot holder and have the blisters to prove it. I can't believe I went all these years cooking without Calphalon, it's the best. Cleans up without any effort, a swish of the sponge and it's clean, or you could let the cat lick it out, nothing sticks to it. If you want what you're cooking to brown, this is not the pan to use, grab the hard-anodized for browning to perfection. Ciao!

4-0 out of 5 stars IT DON'T GET NO BETTER THAN THIS, BUBBA!
Got this little Calphalon pan about two months ago because of its price. Have been impressed with it ever since! Heats fast and evenly. Can cook on much lower temps than I do with my commercial stainless steel cookware. This "three-layer" nonstick coating IS FAR SUPERIOR TO CALPHALON'S TWO-LAYER NONSTICK USED ON SOME OF ITS OTHER PRODUCT LINES! Downside: a) Thought it would be made in Toledo, OH, as are other Calphalon Commercial pans, but was made in China; b) Is on the smallish side and its rounded sides make spillage and overflow a problem if you fill it much more than half-capacity with something that requires stirring--don't expect to cook servings for more than two or three in it; c) Lid and handles do get hot, so have to be careful. But overall, given its price and quality--not to mention its pleasing aesthetics--it is a "must have" pan for every kitchen! (Curiously, despite Calphalon describing this pan as its "commercial" line, the lifetime warranty notes that it does not apply if "used in commercial establishments"!)

5-0 out of 5 stars Made in the USA...
I felt that I needed to write a review to correct another reviewer. One review says that Calphalon no longer seems to making their cookware in the United States, however this is untrue. The Calphalon Commercial Nonstick line is made right here in the good old USA. This is the line I own, and I LOVE it. I will never puchase anything else. Calphalon does make a (much) cheaper line of products that they sell in stores like Target that you can get for about a third the cost of the Calphalon Commercial Non-stick line, and I believe that those are made overseas. I have owned a cheap set of Calphalon from Target, and I must say, it was bad cookware. But the high quality stuff is well worth the cost. Calphalon Commercial Non-stick is the best- it really is nonstick, the clean up is a breeze, and the coating doesn't come off after heavy usage. They also have a lifetime guarantee, so if you happen to get a piece that missed quality control, they will replace it. I must say that if you enjoy cooking, this is the set for you. I consider the higher cost an investment, because before I bought this cookware, I would go through the cheaper cookware pretty fast. This line will last you a lifetime, and Calphalon will be the last brand of cookware you will ever own.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great quality, too small
I have a number of the commercial nonstick pans. If you're patient you can assemble a good set when the individual pans become discounted. This pan is the same as the rest - great quality and great looks. It cooks and cleans easily. My only complaint is that it is too small to be used very often. I have the larger version as well and I use it all the time. ... Read more

With a diameter of 11-1/2 inches, a depth of 5-1/4 inches, and a high domed lid, this 7-quart pan is sized for a family's braising, baking, and stewing tasks. Chili for a soccer team, cassoulet for a family reunion, curried chicken for a block party--all these are well within the pan's capacity. Though it's not nonstick, like some Calphalon cookware, the matte-finish pan is anodized for stick-resistance as well as hardness. Metal utensils won't harm the surface. Textured cast-stainless-steel handles resist heating on the stovetop and go safely into the oven. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, the pan heats evenly and quickly with no hot spots or warping and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful pot
To brew up a large pot of home made soup, chili, a pot roast with brown potatoes (Dan Quale where are you?)and carrots - you just won't find a better large pot. Brown your meat and onions on the stove top add some water, and pop into the oven until the meat is tender, add veggies and continue to cook at 300~325, covered, for the best roast you'll find anywhere. The down side is the price, here.You can find this pot at less than half the price as listed here if you do a bit of searching. As great as they usually are here, they do get a bit pricy from time to time so it is worth shopping around to find the best deal. But you will not go wrong with this pot.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another great pan
I recently purchased this pan and have used it on several occasions, and each time the casserole has proven an invaluable buy. It's great for stews, braised dishes (like lamb shanks or osso bucco) and even plain ol' pasta. Cleaning up hasn't been much of a hassle, either, despite what some folks say about the difficulty of keeping Calphalon Hard Anodized stuff clean.

It's a great multi-purpose pan...a bit on the expensive side, but a tremendous investment for the home cook.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Size for Soups and Stews
Calphalon's new Commercial Hard-Anodized line of cookware is great! I love the stainless steel handles which, unlike the cast aluminum handles of their regular hard-anodized line, stay much cooler to the touch. Also the lids on this line of cookware are domed, which create a tighter seal that reduces evaporation, so you don't have to add liquid during cooking. The handle on the lid is also stainless steel, and the shape has been redesigned to allow for easier lifting. These pans can also be used in the oven.

The Commercial Hard-Anodized 7-Quart Chef's Casserole with Lid is perfect for making a large batch of split pea, lentil, or chicken soup; Irish stew; and Coq au Vin. It's easy to braise your meat first at a medium-high heat, and then add broth or stock when you turn the heat down to a simmer.

For a tomato-based pasta sauce or anything acidic, I still like to use my Le Creuset pots and pans. Also, I don't put any of the Calphalon pots or pans in the dishwasher. ... Read more

The aluminum cores conduct heatquickly and uniformly across the pots and pans' bottoms and all the wayup their sides. The 18/10 stainless-steel interiors and exteriors areeasy to clean and maintain, resist scratching, denting, warping, andcorrosion, are extremely durable, and are nonreactive to acidic food.Domed, glass covers permit cooking to be monitored without releasingheat and are oven-safe to 450 degrees F.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great cookware! You can't go wrong.
I have tried other brands of cookware and these are the best at any price I've seen. I own both a set of the Tri-ply stainless and the nonstick Contemporary cookware from Calphalon (bought one and won the other) and both are fantastic. As far as any discoloration on the stainless, try some Bon-Ami or Bartender's Friend powder. Works great and keeps everyting very shiny and clean. All-Clad is fine but for the money you can't beat Calphalon. Calpahlon is owned by Rubbermaid so maybe that explains why it is so good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Items on Our Registry
My fiance and I chose to add the Tri Ply series to our registry based on look and feel alone. We couldn't be happier that we did. They look beautiful and feel wonderful. FOOD ACTUALLY COOKS DIFFERENT IN THESE. I would recommend using lower heat than you would with a cheaper set.

I too experienced a discoloration after using one of the pots for the first time... had a heart attack! As per one of the earlier reviews: a little distilled vinegar... poof, back to normal!

FYI - We chose this set over an All-Clad set based on looks and price... but we have some friends who got the All-Clad set... ours seems better when it comes to quality...

5-0 out of 5 stars Better made than All-clad
I believe that both All-clad and Calphalon are now made in China. Go and compare both side-by-side. Check the lids for flatness (see if they "rock" back and forth or are level). Turn all of the pots and pans upside down and check for tightness of fit at the handle. Some of the more expensive All-clad have a space between the handle and the pan that you could slip a dime into. Really, go look for yourself. Calphalon has better quality control, the lids rock less (still a little every once in awhile), and the handles fit snug (less chance of food becoming trapped). They just seem to be a surperior product. Thanks for the tip on cleaning the inside with a tbs of distilled vinegar. Brand new and the insides picked up some rainbow color. A little distilled vinegar on the inside, rub with your fingers and rinse. Like new again. As for cooking these are great pots n pans. If you are not a serious cook get the commercial hard anodized or commercial nonstick. These are unbelievably easy to clean. A real pleasure to wash by hand, and they "brown" foods with no real difference if you are an average cook. If I were buying these again I would start with all the deep discount sale pieces and build my own set. Your food will tase better, the colors are much richer (carrots are orange and greens are really "green") I always thought that was just a lot of hype. My wife is a great cook. I am an "eater" and love quality products. Non of the handles get hot. Just use a normal light weight dish cloth. Happy eating

4-0 out of 5 stars This set is just beautiful!
I was concerned that I wouldn't use all the pieces, but I have found uses for everything here. They're like artwork in the kitchen!

The pans are nicely weight balanced and the handles stayed cool. I like the glass lids so I don't have to open them and release all the steam, but the steam fogs them over for a while anyway. The pans heated up at lower temperature and more evenly than any other pans I have such as the T-Fal skillets.

The pans cleaned easily with hot sudsy water and minimal scrubbing. I had some discoloration in my 2 1/2 qt saucepan that was sort of purple even after washing it twice. I panicked until I remembered the universal solution for cleaning stainless: distilled vinegar! It works on water spots and calcium as well. I put a splash in there it cleared up immediately. After rinsing and drying it was shinier than before I used it. Phew!

These are lifetime pans. I replaced everything I had with these. Some of the stuff I had since I got married, but no regrets. Just beautiful!

I changed my stars to 4 from 5 because those handles just aren't big enough to grip the pans and kind of hurt really. I wouldn't recommend these if you have any hand pain or grip problems. Also, I have a hard time cleaning completely around those pesky rivets.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Pans, but not the easiest to clean.
I bought these pans some while ago and I will echo the other reviews and say that they are outstanding as far as cooking quality goes. However, I find that they are not particularly suited to cleaning in the dishwasher. My pans come out of the dishwasher looking just as bad (or worse) as they went in. My suggestion is to treat these as hand-wash only. ... Read more

The Simply Calphalon Nonstick Anodized line of cookware is an excellent alternative for those who prefer cooking on a nonstick surface and who desire Calphalon quality at a budget price. This 10-piece cookware set offers everything a cook needs to kick off a lifetime of meals. The set includes 8-inch and 10-inch omelet pans, 1-quart and 2-quart covered saucepans, a 3-quart covered saute pan, and a 6-quart covered stockpot.

Made of durable hard-anodized aluminum of uniform thickness, these pans are excellent conductors of heat and cook food quickly and evenly. Their double-coated nonstick interiors prevent food from sticking and make cleanup easier. The pans have oval stainless-steel handles with a blasted satin finish that are comfortable to grip and are held in place by sturdy stainless-steel rivets. Also made of brushed stainless steel, the lids are domed to keep moisture in during cooking. This cookware is oven-safe up to 375 degrees F so you don’t have to dirty several pans to make one dish. All Simply Nonstick cookware should be hand-washed and is covered by a 10-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed...
My wife and I bought this set about two months ago. We were excited to be able to get Calphalon quality at such a reasonable price.

Two months later, we find that the non-stick coating on the larger saucepan is already wearing through. I called Calphalon to discuss this. They were very surprised that this is happening already and offered to replace the pot under warranty. I told them I was concerned that this will be part of a trend and that all pots would have to be returned sooner than later. They suggested I try to return or exchange at the retail store where I purchased them.

I've been able to exchange the set at the retailers and have opted for Cuisinart MultiClad in its place. So much for the great non-stick experiment.

I'm surprised with the poor quality of the coating on these Calphalon pots. I have a large anodized saute pan of theirs (which I know does not have the non-stick coating) that performs beautifully, so was disappointed that the Simply Calphalon didn't perform better. I guess my set must have been a "Monday morning at the factory" set...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good set
I was looking to buy some higher-end pans without having to refinance the house and these fit the bill. They are durable, the handles are comfortable and they clean easily. Lids fit well, pans sit nicely on a smooth top stove and heat evenly. Walls are thick but pans are not too heavy and have a good balance. You can't ask for more for such a nicely priced set. The only negative is that the outside of the pans will scratch. I found it was cheaper to buy a set with fewer pans and buy the 3-quart covered sauté pan separately.

5-0 out of 5 stars Joy in the kitchen
These pots and pans will give you a new outlook on cooking and the subsequent cleanup. Easy, easy, easy. The cookware is heavy enough to do everything from omelets to fudge, and it cleans up with minimal effort. The lids are excellent also. This was a 'splurge' for me, yet it represents one of the smartest buying drecisions I've made.

5-0 out of 5 stars An essential cookware set for the cooking enthusiast
These are some of the best pans you could own. First, there is no higher quality, heavy duty pan out there. Second, they is surprisingly cheap for such high quality. Third, I have never tackled a project with these pans that has not come out a success. It is truly professional grade for the home. Even if you are not a professional chef or a food enthusiast, these pans make building a great dish easy. You don't have to worry about those non-stick coatings that peel off but you also don't have to worry about your food sticking to the surface. Ignore the fact that it is more expensive than K-Mart Brand Pan--It is worth the extra cost! Food always cooks evenly and always seems to do so effortlessly. It is the perfect size for a family of four or five and can be used for just about any situation when you don't have the proper pan (although you should really go and check out all of Calphalon's other pans too).

5-0 out of 5 stars I love Calphalon!
I'm not sure whether this is the exact set I own, but mine has the same pieces. I bought my set when I moved into my first apartment, and I don't plan on ever buying another set of pans. The non-stick surface is amazing (yes, I can brown perfect pancakes without oil and I never have to *scrub* them, even with burned on food). Its definitely worth it to have the clear glass lids rather than opaque [Edited to add: One of my lids shattered a couple months ago--I think Calphalon has stopped making the glass ones because of this, although I still like having the ability to see my food while it's cooking]. Also, before you buy, check the handles: Calphalon seems to have redesigned their handles so they are much skinnier (mine are nice and fat, so I can easily pour a heavy pan one-handed without straining my wrists. My parents have a set with skinny handles, and it is much harder to hold them one-handed.) I've put mine in the dishwasher a few times, and it doesn't seem to do them any harm, but they tend to dry spotty. I would rather baby them and hand wash than have them looking dingy. All in all, a terrific product whether you're looking for one pot or a whole set! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

This 12-inch everyday pan will end up being the hardest working pan in your kitchen. It is ideal for everything from simmering stovetop succotash and braising brisket to browning Dutch pancakes or cooking fruit tarts. Part of Calphalon's Commercial Hard-Anodized line of cookware, this pan is made of heavy-gauge aluminum that's uniformly thick across the bottom and sides, allowing for quick and even heat distribution. Its durable hard-anodized finish is stick- and scratch-resistant and won’t react with acidic foods. The patented cast stainless-steel handles are comfortable to grip, plus they minimize heat transfer so handles stay cool on the stovetop. Handles are held in place by three sturdy stainless-steel rivets. The included hard-anodized lid is dome-shaped, making it ideal for moist-heat cooking. The cookware and lid are oven-safe up to 450 degrees F so you can transfer a frittata to the oven for browning without having to switch pans. All cookware in this line is covered by a lifetime warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Top quality pan!
I have used Calphalon pans quite a lot and they really are some of the best cookware you can buy. This pan didn't get much use in my kitchen, I tend to use the frying pan and pots more than this. Like the other Calphalon pots and pans, this one is made of heavy-gauge aluminum which I absolutely love. It heats up quickly and evenly. It also has stay-cool handles, which are great for me when I'm having a moment and forget the pot holders!

I have used this particular pan for making omelettes and browning meat for tacos, so while its not the most commonly used pan in my kitchen it has seen a decent amount of use. I've never had a problem with the stick-resistant surface, its always been super easy to clean after each use. If something is particularly sticky, I just soak the pan in water for 20 minutes and then scrub it down. I also only use nylon Calphalon utensils, using metal will probably scratch up the pan.

The only bad thing about Calphanlon pans is that you are not supposed to put them in the dishwasher. You "can" but it tends to damage the surface and it also voids the lifetime warranty (which is one of the main reasons I tried Calphalon in the first place!).

5-0 out of 5 stars Come on! You know you need this one!
I LOVE this pan! Can't believe I bypassed my review of it. It's been a wonderful addition to my growing CALPHALON collection.

This has become THE first pan I grab for almost ANY application. The size is perfect for one pan family meals. Cooks a wonderful stir fry and will take the heat needed to acheive the same. I've fried egg rolls in it, browned meat in it, and even steamed veggies in it. Chili, sauces,paella...you name it...it'll work 9 out of 10 times you grab it.

This pan is broad and low, but has plenty of room for whatever you're cooking. Brown your stir fry meat, toss in your veggies and sauce, place the domed lid on top and "dinner will be served in 5 minutes!"

Calphalon heats quickly, browns beautifully, deglazes wonderfully, and clean up is a breeze in my book.

I now own quite a Calphalon collection and must say, with few exceptions, this has become my most used pan. (Gee, maybe that's why it's call the "EVERY DAY PAN.") Look at the great price Amazon.com is offering this for and click to order. You absolutely will not be disappointed and will have a new workhourse in you kitchen collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars MY WIFE LOVES IT
The wife is the one who uses it all the time. She loves that she can cook enough for the family in one pan. Clean up is a breeze. A great buy for anybody who does alot of cooking.

5-0 out of 5 stars A GREAT pan at an even greater price
I have used Calphalon pans for years, and I agree with other reviewers that their hard anodized pans are far superior to other pans on the market. Unlike stainless, they do not scorch. Unlike copper, they do not require laborious cleaning and polishing to keep looking nice. I find that when I read the reviews of people who have been disappointed with Calphalon's hard anodized pans, they typically did not understand what they were purchasing or how to use them. Hard anodized cookware is not non-stick. It is because the food INITIALLY sticks to the pan that you get such great browning. They are stick resistant, meaning that after the food has cooked properly, it releases, leaving a wonderful crust on the food and great browned bits in the bottom of the pan.

And what's all this about "ruining" the pans by putting them in the dishwasher? They may discolor, but they are not ruined. Nor do you need any special cleaners to clean them. If there is anything stuck that you didn't deglaze, a brief soak takes everything off. I've had my pans for over 10 years, and none of them have stuck on food, places where the anodation has come off, or any of the other problems of which some other reviewers have complained.

The everday pan is no exception. It conducts heat wonderfully, and works great on top or inside of the oven. It works for almost any job you can throw at it, from scrambled eggs to roasted pork loan to braised lamb shanks. Its size makes it perfect for family meals, yet it is not so big that you wouldn't pull it out for a meal for just one or two people. It is nonreactive, which makes it great for acidic foods like pasta sauce. The domed lid really seals in steam and promotes self-basting. And the dual handles make it easy to carry from oven to table. This pan really can handle it all. And at this price, it deserves to be in every kitchen.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
You will see the beginning of this review on several pans I am rating. After much research I decided on Calphalon anodized pans. I did so because A. I read that they were easier to care for and clean than stainless and B. I put together a set from Amazon at a wonderful price. I regret my decision because these pans are anything BUT easy to care for. They show every spec of oil and it does not come off easily with the special cleaner needed to protect the anodized finish. They also scratch easily when they touch each other. I hand them but cannot imagine how bad they would look if I stacked them instead. I am in the process of gradually replacing these pans with stainless which will not be ruined if one of your children forgets and puts it in the dishwasher.

I have noticed that the nonstick pans were made in China and the others were made in Ohio. I have seen reviews saying the Ohio pans are better. I did not find this to be true. The nonstick pans have shiney handles and lids that are much more attractive than the dull metal from the US made ones. Neither appears to be more or less sturdy.

Of all the pans this one gets the most use and believe me it shows. One reviewer said "who cares" about looks but it is not only the look but the health issue here. I do not feel comfortable with pans that are no longer anodized and thus leaching aluminum into my food. The jury is still out about aluminum and alzheimers, but I don't want to take the risk. My recommendation if you want anodized it to only buy non-stick so you do not have to worry about acids ruining the anodized finish on the interior. If you are not concerned about this then I think you will be happy with this pan. It is large enough to make a big meal. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Griddle, BUT?
This is a great Calphalon "Commercial"griddle I thought I was buying?

I bought Three last year (2gifts), and thought I was buying Calphalon Commercial Nonstick, as that is what was Advertized on Amazon.
Now after reading Your reviews, I went and took a look at the bottom of mine, and Your all right, it just says Caphalon, made in China!!!
The box read Calphalon Commercial nonstick.
I also noticed on my Calphalon Commercial nonstick crepe pan, it just says, Calphalon made in China!
Now when I took alook at other Calphalon Commercial it just says Caphalon, some say made in toledo Ohio, and some say made in China, and some say, Calphalon Commercial.

I thought The Commercial line had a life time warrentee, Now I wonder how Calphalon can tell what all this cookware is , if it doesnt say!!

I just now noticed that this griddle reads, Calphalon?
I just typed in Calphalon Commercial nonstick Griddle, and the page comes up that does read that, but its also MORE money, with different reviews, then this one has!

Last Xmas I bought 15 piece's of Calphalon commercial for my daughter, and bought an other 10 pieces for my son.

I'm really confused, and will be calling Caphalon tomorrow, and see what I have really bought.
I do know that Calphalon mades cookware for Target , and that is a much cheaper line that I do not want.

I do have say, this is a great piece of Calphalon and I would buy it again.
I do love all my other Caphalon also.
The only Thing I don't like about it, the handles.
There too slim for the weight (I have thin hands), unless I use the swede sleave pot holder, then it doesnt turn over on me, but that only happens when I carry it to the sink, and when I wash it.

I do notice when cooking with Calphalon there is a better taste to my soups , stews, ect.

3-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy if you have a flat-top oven
Granted, it should have been a little more obvious to me that this would not work on my oven after looking at the picture a bit more closely.1) I have a standard-sized oven and 2) the oven top is a flat-top design.Because of of the size of my oven, I cannot fit it back to front as most griddles are designed to work.Because of the type of my oven (a flat top) I cannot use this because the cooking surface is elevated above the bottom of the pan (there is a reservoir along the sides that is flush with the bottom).If you have gas or electric (with elevated burners) this should work ok for you (although I still cannot gaurantee that it will fit front-to-back).

5-0 out of 5 stars This great product is indeed a Calphalon COMMERICAL NONSTICK
Some doubts have been raised by some of the previous reviewers as to the particular Calphalon line that this piece is from. This was a big deal for me as well so I called Calphalon, provided the model number off of the box and was assured that this is indeed a Calphalon Commercial Nonstick product.Also, while the packaging materials do not use the word "Commercial" anywhere on the box, it is reassuring to note that the pan is in the typical green box that most "Collector's Edition" Calphalon COMMERCIAL nonstick pieces are packaged in.

4-0 out of 5 stars good, but be advised!
This is a nice griddle, however, be advised of a couple of things:

1. the box, nor the griddle, NOWHERE say this is a part of the COMMERCIAL NONSTICK line, therefore you have no guarantee of the legendary LRS3 commercial nonstick coating being used to build it.This seems deceptive to sell this as "Commercial Nonstick", when nowhere is the word "commercial" to be found, and it is made in China, which could be just fine, or maybe not.It would be nice if Amazon just called this "nonstick", which is what the box says, or else get Calphalon to use correct nomenclature on their boxes, if it is really the Commercial Nonstick line.This is important, because I previously bought a set of baking pans that Amazon advertised as "Commercial Nonstick" and the coating quickly flaked off when the jelly roll pan was used at 400 degrees, which is not even very hot for that type of pan. (although these did not even have ANY name on the back of the pan!)

I have used the REAL Calphalon Commercial Nonstick at 450 for years with no problem, including some pieces made in China, however those said "Commercial" on the box.So, to summarize, this ~may~ be the LRS3 commercial nonstick coating or may not be, but someone at Calphalon needs to decide what this is, and Calphalon and their biggest customer Amazon need to get together and get their box and description to jive.


2. also, be aware that this griddle cannot be used in most ovens anyway, because IT WON'T FIT! I was hoping that this griddle might make a good roasting pan for vegetables, fish, etc, but the 13" x 20" advertised size makes it easy to not realize that the handle-to-handle dimension is 23" across rather than the 20" as described, meaning it will not fit into a 22" wide standard oven whatsoever.This fact could also be made more clear in the Amazon description.Alton Brown says in his book that he once had a catering job disaster when he realized a similar pan would not fit in the standard oven available, due to the wide handles, so I don't feel quite so dumb....I apparently am in some very esteemed company!


so for $39, it is a quite a nicely made griddle, but don't believe that this is necessarily the "commercial" Calphalon line, we have exactly ZERO evidence to support that, and even the Calphalon factory website does not acknowledge the existence of this particular griddle (even though Amazon says it is a "new arrival")It is, however, based on the hard-anodized Calphalon aluminum, so heat distribution should be great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Vast Cooking Area Over Two Burners!
This is a delightful piece of cookware.The ability to span two burners allows for making enough pancakes to feed a family or to cook and keep warm at the same time!The heat is spread very evenly without any hot spots.There is absolutely no need for oil or butter (I use butter/olive oil for flavor!) as the nonstick works wonderfully. There are two corners that are "crimped" which allow for the easy pouring off of bacon/sausage grease without it running to the underside of the griddle (a really nice touch). There is a depression which runs all the way around the griddle and collects the grease of bacon or sausage.

It is very easy to clean but does require some special handling.First, never put this griddle in a dishwasher (I doubt it would fit). There will be significant discoloration of the anodized aluminum. Second, use only non metal utensils, the metal ones WILL SCRATCH the surface.

Overall, this griddle is as good as I have ever used (in my 40+ years of cooking).This griddle is a real pleasure to use . ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

This straight-sided 2-1/2-quart pan can be used for sauces and, covered with its flat lid, for stews and casseroles. Shallow (3 inches) in relation to its capacity and diameter (8-3/8 inches), this pan, unlike conventionally proportioned saucepans, exposes lots of surface and is therefore ideal for reducing sauces or even stocks and broths. Though it's not nonstick, like some Calphalon cookware, the matte-finish pan is anodized for stick-resistance as well as hardness. Metal utensils won't harm the surface. The contoured, textured handle is cast stainless steel and resists heating on the stovetop; it's also triple-riveted for durability and balance. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, the pan cooks without hot spots or warping and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great saucepan
I recently ordered this based on my appreciation for Calphalon products and the great price. This is a fantastic saucepan that can practically double as a saute pan. It is surprisingly large and roomy, and the extra diameter gives it plenty of room for fitting in two or three chicken breasts, a modest steak, or a handful of veggies. I love it for making coq au vin since it isn't too large and goes right in the oven.

Nothing sticks to this pan if you add just a dab of butter or oil, and it heats up and cools quickly. One great feature of pure aluminum cookware is the fact that aluminum dissipates heat quickly, so pulling the pan off the heat is a great way to regulate the temperature when making a sauce. This is a great product and a wonderful addition to my Calphalon cookware collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars what a steal!!
Ok, let me get this straight...Amazon has 2 different 2.5 quart Calphalon Commerical Hard-Anodized saucepans, the regular, and the shallow. Inspecting the technical details of the two pans, one quickly realizes that they are identical except for the diameter and the height of the pan. The shallow is, naturally, more shallow (3 in. compared to 3 7/8 in), and therefore wider (8 3/8 in compared to 7 in) to accomdodate the fact that they hold the same amount of volume. What does this mean? More SURFACE AREA. What does surface area do? Well, think about it for a second: more of the pan is in direct contact with the heat because of the larger bottom. As a result, more of the food is exposed to the heat. The result? Faster cooking!
And this is a "sauce" pan after all. So what does this mean for sauce? Same thing as above, but remember, more of the sauce comes in contact with the air. More surface-to-air ratio = faster reducing times for sauces.
So we've established that from a technical standpoint, the shallow saucepan seems superior. It cooks faster because of a greater area for heat to contact food and for the surface of a sauce to contact the air. With that in mind, take a guess which one costs more. Surprsingly enough the pan with the lower amount of surface area costs at least %50 more than the more useful shallow saucepan.
So unless you are looking for a pan that reduces more slowly and has a much lower amount of versatility (try browning a couple of chicken breasts in the regulation sized saucepan...you'll have squished chicken), I recommend this pan whole-heartedly. The anodized aluminum does not react with acidic foods such as tomato sauces, looks really cool, heats quickly and evenly (aluminum is an incredible heat conductor), and won't bust your budget. This is the perfect way to own a piece of excellent cookware for a bargain basement price. Just remember, it is stick-resistant, not non-stick. This browns up much nicer than the Calphalon non-stick stuff, and you don't have to treat with kid gloves. About the only thing you can't do is throw it in the dishwasher (which you shouldn't do with any decent pot or pan) and use a knife or electric mixer in it (a hand blender is fine...the blades never touch the pot).

5-0 out of 5 stars Accurate info for prospective buyer research
If you are considering the purchase of this pan or any of the caphalon products in this line. Totally disregard the Toledo vs China comments. They have no validity WHATSOEVER! I've purchased two of these pans (1 Toledo's, 1 China), and there is absolutely no difference in quality, thickness, or weight. I've also purchased the Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 9-Inch, 2-Quart Chef's Skillet with Lid(2 Toledos, 1 China), and again,there is absolutely no difference in quality, thickness, or weight. There is a difference in thickness & weight, if you compare them to other caphalon product lines. However, that is not to say they are inferior. They have a nice thickness and weight, great heat retention and dispersment. Awesome for browning, making sauces, stir frying, etc. If you follow the instructions for use, you will have no problems with cleaning,food release, or sticking. I have read most of the reviews, and the bad ones can be attributed to two things: 1. We alway seem to think stuff is way better made in America ... not true in this particular case. Those who made statements about Toledo pans vs China pans, could not own pans from both plants. 2. Complaints about sticking, or cleaning, ...they didnt follow the SIMPLE instructions.

This moderately sized, deep, round-sided skillet is like a flat-bottomed wok, perfect for stir-frying and designed to facilitate a chef's C-shaped flipping motion. Because it exposes lots of surface compared to the diameter of its bottom (it's 6 inches at the bottom, 9 inches across the top), the 2-quart skillet is also ideal for quickly reducing sauces. Though not nonstick, like some Calphalon cookware, the matte-finish pan is anodized for stick-resistance as well as hardness. Metal utensils won't harm the surface. Contoured, textured handles of cast stainless steel resist heating on the stovetop, go safely into the oven, and are triple-riveted for durability and balance. Notches in the handles facilitate hanging on a hook or a peg. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, the pan cooks without hot spots or warping and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Small, Versatile Pan--Great Buy
This Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 2-Quart Chef's Pan with Lid is a "collector's item" from the newer line of Calphalon's Hard-Anodized cookware. Thus, it is the same alloy aluminum type pan as in the older "Professional" line, but its handle is "stay-cool" sculpted stainless steel, instead of an older chrome-covered iron handle, which could get very hot to the touch. The 9-Inch bottom of this chef's pan is slightly smaller than that of the 3-Quart Sauté pan, another useful pan that usually comes with a Calphalon starter set.

This pan is a bargain. Since Calphalon rarely offers such deep discounts, it seems worthwhile to add it to one's collection. Because it has the rounded chef's shape, I would use it for stir-frying, reducing sauces, and making demi-glace. I have two flat-bottomed woks (Joyce Chen and Calphalon), but they do not work that well on an electric range. This chef's pot works well for a small-to-medium stir fry on either gas or electric burners. When the stir fry is done, I use a Calphalon nylon scoop to remove the cooked food, then I reduce the sauce.

The hard anodized finish of this chef's pot makes it virtually non-stick. Using a pan spray is not a good idea because it can leave behind a sticky residue. Hand-washing is recommended, with use of Bon Ami or Dormond cleaner for any stubborn stains.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Pan, Great Value
Even though mine came from Toledo, this pan IS lighter weight than my other Calphalon pans, but after using it for several months, I don't notice any less performance compared to its heavier siblings. It's a great size for sauteing vegetables or shrimp for 1-2 people, and with its deep tapered sides, it's ideal for reducing sauces. Even with thick cheese sauces, you don't have to worry about "hot spots" burning or sticking (it makes a killer alfredo sauce). This pan won't wipe clean with a paper towel like a non-stick pan will, but after following Calphalon's guidelines, I haven't had any problem cleaning any of my hard-anodized pans, whether I fried, baked or broiled in them. I have gotten a few oil spots on my pans, as other reviewers have mentioned, but they don't look that bad, and it doesn't affect performance. This is a great little pan and a great big value.

5-0 out of 5 stars Accurate info for prospective buyer research
If you are considering the purchase of this pan or any of the caphalon products in this line. Totally disregard the Toledo vs China comments. They have no validity WHATSOEVER! I've purchased three of these pans (2 Toledo's, 1 China), and there is absolutely no difference in quality, thickness, or weight. I've also purchased the Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 2-1/2-Quart Shallow Saucepans with Lids (1 Toledo, 1 China), and again,there is absolutely no difference in quality, thickness, or weight. There is a difference in thickness & weight, if you compare them to other caphalon product lines. However, that is not to say they inferior. They have a nice thickness and weight, great heat retention and dispersment. Awesome for browning, making sauces, stir frying, etc. If you follow the instructions for use, you will have no problems with cleaning,food release, or sticking. I have read most of the reviews, and the bad ones can be attributed to two things: 1. We alway seem to think stuff is way better made in America ... not true in this particular case. Those who made statements about Toledo pans vs China pans, could not own pans from both plants. 2. Complaints about sticking, or cleaning, ...they didnt follow the SIMPLE instructions.

2-0 out of 5 stars READ THIS FIRST -- review your needs before u buy it
I bought this , as it looked cool in the website.
First -- Don't buy unless you are single and are making
a one serving of the dish -- it is too small--
aLL the food gets spilled on the stove.
Second -- It doesn't have the protective coating-- like non stick
It doesn't work if you want to cook on high flame
and less oil.You have to compromise on time or fat.
Third -- I bought couple of more in the hard anodized -- they
are good for making soups, not stir fry's.
Fourth -- I cannot use it for deep fry's as I am scared that it
will spill, as it doesn't have a flat base and is not
stable on the stove.
Fifth -- I highly recommend the contemporary style that amazon
has -- I use it all the time.

If you're committed to cooking professional-tasting meals, you need professional-quality tools, and Calphalon delivers in spades with its Commercial Bakeware line. This set of five pieces consists of two 8-inch round cake pans, a jellyroll pan, a 6-cup muffin pan, and a medium loaf pan. Each is made of heavy-gauge aluminum and features a two-tone design that promotes even and efficient cooking--now you no longer have to worry about the insides of your cakes tasting goopy while the edges have the texture of week-old biscotti. Because of the bakeware's smooth, nonstick material, all of your baked goods, whether they're cakes, muffins, bread loaves, or jellyrolls, slide effortlessly out of the pan when finished. The nonstick exterior also makes cleanup quick and easy. Calphalon recommends you use nylon, wood, or coated utensils to prevent scratching.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kindest cut for your bucks
After a year of researching knives and about 10 years struggling with a bad-quality set, I settled on the Calphalon 15-piece for a few reasons...

*The collection included in this set is comprehensive and sufficient, especially the fact that it includes the steak knives and a scissors.
*You get the "full tang" construction of expensive brands like Henckels and Wusthoff but without the price
*The handle construction is more sealed off and sturdy than the one Wusthoff knife I own, which has rivets in the handle that rust!
*The blades are strong and sharp, and cleanup is easy.
*The labels on the ends of each knife are so helpful--what a great idea!

I am very happy with this set, although I do wish the block had a few more slots. It only fits the knives in the main collection plus three steak knives. They are quite heavy, so do take care when wielding one. Nonetheless, good price, good quality, and great looks!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good value
I finally grew out of my cheap kitchen knife set as my cooking frequency and skills have increased. I looked around at Henckel's and others, and even bought some single pieces. Everyone advises to get German steel, full tang, and a riveted handle. Well, unless you are hung up on the rivets, this is the set. The price is excellent. The heft is great, and the knives fit my large (male) hands very well. After dealing with a "starter" set it's like I've moved on to a whole new level of enjoyment in cooking. As far as the rivets, I noticed that one of the high-end Henckel's (I think 4) doesn't have rivets either. Since purchasing this set, I have also bought the boning knife separately and have found this to be a nice addition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Set For the $$$
I just bought my first set of Calphalon Contemporary cutlery and wow what a difference between this set and some other sets I've owned. The edges are incredibly sharp and the labeling concept is truly an ingenious idea. Not to mention the overall design of the product is fantastic. Design, balance, comfort, and a lifetime warranty for half the cost, how can you go wrong? I've owned lesser sets of cutlery before that have cost me far more money. I'm sold on Calphalon's latest line of cutlery and I know I'll never buy any other brand again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent set for the serious beginner
Excellent set for the serious beginner/advanced chef. Has all the blades you could think of and you just have to pick up the 6 inch chef or the 7 inch santoku to complete this set. Other blades are also available as well. Slices like a dream even under heavy use. Overall this should be your second set. Still chopping and slicing...

5-0 out of 5 stars A great set
I recieved a set of these knives for Christmas this year, and they're a real joy to work with. After working with a set of ill suited cheap Farberware knives that never cut well to begin with and couldn't be sharpened, I was (and still am) amazed how quickly these can get any task done, and how easy it is to make accurate cuts. The curving of the handle seen in the large knife in photo (on all handles too!) is a great feature to make grip easier, and they have a good weight to them without being too heavy and cumbersome. Just be sure you hand wash these to keep them in top condition :) ... Read more

The Simply Calphalon Nonstick Anodized line of cookware is an excellent alternative for those who prefer cooking on a nonstick surface and who desire Calphalon quality at a budget price. Perfect for single servings, this 1-quart saucepan cooks an individual portion of vegetable soup, puttanesca sauce, or quinoa.

Made of durable hard-anodized aluminum of uniform thickness, the pan is an excellent heat conductor and cooks food quickly and evenly. Its double-coated nonstick interior prevents food from sticking and makes cleanup easier. The pan has a contoured oval stainless-steel handle with a blasted satin finish that is comfortable to grip and is held in place by sturdy stainless-steel rivets. The contrasting brushed stainless-steel cover is slightly domed for steaming foods, offering more versatility to this pan. This saucepan is oven-safe up to 375 degrees F so you don't have to dirty several pans to make one dish. All cookware in this line is 100-percent dishwasher-safe (although cleaning with soap and water is recommended to maintain the nonstick finish) and is covered by a 10-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ...

Omelets, whether firm country-style or tender French, must be cooked quickly and folded in the pan. A classic omelet pan, therefore, is thick-bottomed for rapid, even heating and shallow with steeply sloped sides so omelets can be rolled easily against them. This pan qualifies on all counts, and it's ideal for sautéing and searing, also. Use only plastic, nylon, and wooden utensils on its nonstick cooking surface. The pan is anodized for hardness. For that no-nonsense, commercial-kitchen look, Calphalon's Professional Nonstick II cookware wears a matte finish. Rolled stainless-steel handles are double-riveted for durability and balance, and stay cool on stovetops. Holes in the handles facilitate hanging on a hook or peg. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, pans cook without hot spots or warping. Lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A good deal on a quality nonstick pan...
This is a high-end nonstick pan that performs extremely well. It heats up quickly and evenly with its thick aluminum bottom, and has a handle that stays cool, unlike regular Calphalon pans. The nonstick performance has been adequate in the 2 years that I have had the pan, and I am secure in the knowledge that Calphalon offers a Lifetime Warranty and has a good reputation for sticking by it. The only drawback is that you can not put it in the dishwasher, but that is not a big deal because the pan is usually easy to clean. Food only sticks when I impatiently use too high of a heat. Now I stick to the directions, which say you should never go beyond medium-high, and preferably medium.

I use the pan most often for sauteing and carmelizing onions and garlic, and it does an excellent job at both. I also have the nonstick grill pan, which is also a fine pan, for meat. All in all, this makes a fine addition to a standard Calphalon set. The nonstick surface is most valuable when pan-frying, and I prefer the standard hard-anodized surface (which can take metal utensils, unlike the nonstick) for most other cooking tasks.

3-0 out of 5 stars GREAT PAN . . . INFERIOR NONSTICK COATING
Since my initial review of this product, I've used it extensively. FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE BUY THE CALPHALON 10" COMMERCIAL NONSTICK OMELET PAN!! The aluminum part of the pan is impressive--heats fast and evenly. You can even brown meats and poultry in it on only moderate heat settings. The nonstick coating is, regretfully, inferior. Other reviews have remarked on this pan's "two-layer" nonstick coating and its lack of durability and early failure in use compared to the "three-layer" nonstick Calphalon uses on its Commercial line. The difference in the quality of the two nonsticks is even plainly visible upon sight: the three-layer is much less porous and more dense. Indeed, I am already having problems with foods sticking on this two-layer nonstick coating after only a few months in use. GO WITH THE THREE-LAYER COMMERICAL LINE!! It's only $3 or $4 dollars more than this one, and worth every cent! On the plus side, this item arrived two days in advance of the Amazon estimated delivery date. On the down side, it was not what I expected. It's packaged in a plain, brown cardboard box with no Calphalon brand identifying marks on it. There was no warranty or other literature packed with it. And, it was made in China--rather than Ohio as I thought it would be. Fortunately, I have other Calphalon products so I know the temperature, utensil and cleaning limitations. To the uninitiated--given the lack of warranty or use and care info--they might stick it in a dishwasher or use abrasive cleaners or non-synthetic utensils and void the supposed lifetime warranty ("supposed" as the Amazon description says this, though nothing packed with the product does). It seems a good quality product for the $14.99 Amazon price. However, I really wish Amazon would be more conscientious about showing a product's country of origin or manufacture. That way, purchasers can decide beforehand whether they wish to buy items "outsourced" by U.S. companies to be made in foreign countries where labor is cheaper. Or, if they want to keep their money in the USA by only purchasing products from U.S. manufacturers who actually make their items here.

5-0 out of 5 stars I like it!
I like this pan very much. It is my first piece of Calphalon and I was impressed with it immediately. I used it in the oven to cook a pineapple upside down cake and the cake slid out beautifully. I was able to make an omelet with only one egg and it browned nicely. The handle did not get hot on the stovetop and the pan did not scratch or leave marks on my flat-top range. (If you have carpal tunnel, it would be a bit too heavy for your comfort).

4-0 out of 5 stars Very, very good, but not excellent
This is a very, very good non-stick pan. It does its job every day. It is heavy enough to spread the heat eavenly.
I put it in the dishwasher every day (I am not sure why it is not recommended to put it in the dishwasher, so far I had no problem with it).

It is still not excellent, because as most other non-stick pan, it progressively gets back due to the little particles of food that stick to it. I see that in a couple of years I'll have to buy a new one. Oh well. aren't they all like that?

5-0 out of 5 stars This Is Authentic!
I have contacted Calphalon and told them about this item and they have written me back that this is indeed their product. I love mine and it really didn't matter....but I wanted to put this issue to rest. GREAT pan at a GREAT price! ... Read more

Stretching 10 inches in diameter and shaped like a deep bowl, Calphalon's commercial nonstick stir fry pan functions similarly to a wok, but rests evenly on the burner without aid. Perfect for preparing a medley of chopped vegetables and cut meats, this versatile pan transitions comfortably from atop the stove to the oven for warming or re-heating. The excellent heat conductivity of heavy-gauge aluminum results in a rapidly heating pan while its nonstick interior surface requires less oil thus enabling low fat cooking. As with all nonstick surfaces, nylon, wood, or plastic utensils are favored over their metal counterparts. Secured by three rivets, the cast, stainless-steel handle stays cool with regular stove-top use and stretches 7 inches from the body to provide a firm grip for even transport. Washing in warm, sudsy water with a nylon scrub brush brings best results; dishwasher cleaning is not recommended. This item is oven-safe up to 450 degrees F and comes with Calphalon's lifetime warranty. -- Amy Arnold ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful set
These are some of the best pans you could own. First, there is no higher quality, heavy duty pan out there. Second, they is surprisingly cheap for such high quality. Third, I have never tackled a project with these pans that has not come out a success. It is truly professional grade for the home. Even if you are not a professional chef or a food enthusiast, these pans make building a great dish easy. You don't have to worry about those non-stick coatings that peel off but you also don't have to worry about your food sticking to the surface. Ignore the fact that it is more expensive than K-Mart Brand Pan--It is worth the extra cost! Food always cooks evenly and always seems to do so effortlessly. It is the perfect size for a family of four or five and can be used for just about any situation when you don't have the proper pan (although you should really go and check out all of Calphalon's other pans too).

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great pot!!!
This is the first time I tried a Calphalon product. I compared the Commercial version with this Simply Calphalon. It seems like this one has 10 years of warranty while the Commercial brand has lifelong warranty (my life or the product's life ;)).

Anyways, I wasn't expecting this to be such a great pot:
- handle stays cool nearly all the time.
- If you keep the cover on longer for a period of time, it's handle will get hot.
- super easy to clean. just couple of wipes. On the first day of getting this pot, I cooked thrice in this pot and it was just amazing.
- I found the heat to be more uniform as compared to other brands.
- you cannot put this in the dishwasher which will void the warranty.

Overall, I find this pot very use and I find myself cooking more often. From now onwards, I'll only buy Calphalon brand. I will try commercial also sometime, but I guess if this pot lasts for 10 years I'll be more than happy.

A great buy, although you might get it cheaper if you look longer since the price keeps changing on amazon quite frequently.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great pot for the money
I bought this pot, you cannot beat it for the money.
I Usually buy Calphalon commercial nonstick, but I thought for the price it would be fine.

Well its better then fine, makes perfect rice, or what ever your going to use it for, Sauce , soups etc.

I still have not found the differents in the way it cooks different then the Calpalon commercial, that does cost alot more.

The simply is only coated with nonstick 2 times, the commerial is coated 3 times and is garenteed for life.

The simple is garenteed for 10 years.

The way I figure, this is not a pot that you would use everyday, so it would still last you a very long time if you take care of it.

Do not put this or any other Calphalon into the dishwasher, you would void out the garrentee, but who would put any good cookware or good knifes in the dishwasher.Its for Dishes...

I've bought this saucepan for my wife a year ago. She likes it very much and she uses it daily. The saucepan is still good as new. This is lower end line of Calphalon which has only 10 year warranty but it is still a good alternative. I think it is made in China because it doesn't say where it was made. I give a four star because it is not as good as the other Calphalon's lines. I recommend to buy it if you don't want to spend much more money for other more Calphalon lines of products. ...

This set is a wonderful acquisition or gift for gourmet cooks who are just as concerned with the appearance of their cookware as they are with its performance. The set includes all the necessary pieces for a complete kitchen: 8-inch and 10-inch omelet pans, a 3-quart covered sauté pan, a 6-quart covered saucepot, and 1-1/2- and 2-1/2-quart covered saucepans.

Part of Calphalon’s premium Tri-Ply Copper line, this brilliant stainless-steel and copper-accented cookware cooks beautifully and looks gorgeous. The pan’s exterior is crafted of copper--the superior metal for heat conduction--while a heavy-gauge aluminum core runs through its center. The combination of these two metals provides more exact control while cooking and excellent end results. The interior is made of 18/10 stainless steel, which is nonreactive to acidic foods and offers a reflective surface that makes it easier to know when foods are completely cooked. This cookware has Calphalon’s patented stainless-steel Cool-V handles that stay cool to the touch on the stovetop and stainless-steel lids that fit snugly onto the pan for a tight seal. All Tri-Ply Copper cookware is oven-safe up to 450 degrees F and is covered by a lifetime warranty.--Cristina Vaamonde

5-0 out of 5 stars If you've always wanted a bright copper kettle...
These are some of the best pans you could own. First, there is no higher quality, heavy duty pan out there. Second, they is surprisingly cheap for such high quality. Third, I have never tackled a project with these pans that has not come out a success. It is truly professional grade for the home. Even if you are not a professional chef or a food enthusiast, these pans make building a great dish easy. You don't have to worry about those non-stick coatings that peel off but you also don't have to worry about your food sticking to the surface. Ignore the fact that it is more expensive than K-Mart Brand Pan--It is worth the extra cost! Food always cooks evenly and always seems to do so effortlessly. It is the perfect size for a family of four or five and can be used for just about any situation when you don't have the proper pan (although you should really go and check out all of Calphalon's other pans too).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great set, tough and pretty
Okay, let's get one thing straight. If you're the type of person who requires your cookware to remain 100% scratch free forever- you are probably not much of a cook. Sorry, but pots and pans are not invincable and if you use them . . . *really* use them, they are going to get dinged, burnished and yes, even scratched. Yet, I have found that these are actually quite resistant to the kind of wear and tear that I have experienced with cheaper products and I have most definitely USED them (metal spatulas, whisking with a fork, accidentally burning oil in them . . . those of you who wince at scratched pans are probably in the fetal position at the mere mention of such practices). Despite my rather kamikaze approach to cooking, the triply has maintained a high degree of beauty and strength. A few scratches here and there, but they conduct wonderfullly and make up for my cheesy apartment range.
The copper discolors when it is exposed to a lot of heat, but I don't really care. The burnished copper turns purple, green, yellow, even blue sometimes, but it scrubs away easily with the proper polish- if you must polish it away. I think it looks fine and is a sort of badge-of-honor to the world. Tarnishes and scratches all declare to my kitchen's visitors that I spend more time cooking with my pans than I do maintaining their pinkish-orange sheen.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good cookware, but delicate
I have recently purchased a full set of Calphalon Tri-Ply Copper cookware. It is much like a traditional sports car -- sexy and well-performing, but high-maintenance. It's nicely designed and solidly constructed, and the thick layers of metal evenly conduct heat all around the contents. It's slow to heat but once up to temp, is easily controlled and cooks very gently. Typical of copper, the exterior layer requires polishing to keep its shiny good looks, and can easily be scratched -- that comes with the territory and is something to be expected. Surprisingly, however (and quite unlike other stainless steel cookware I've used), the s/s interior layer is also exceptionally prone to scratching. The interior's mirror-like appearance is attractive and useful for viewing the contents, but use of ordinary metal utensils leaves unsightly tracks which are there to stay (e.g., cannot be polished out). Calphalon's Tri-Ply Copper brochure advises that metal utensils will not harm the pan -- don't believe a word of it! Be prepared to use nylon or wood utensils if you want to avoid an ever-growing matrix of scratches, or go to a different brand of cookware altogether. I like Tri-Ply for its performance but am not impressed by having to use soft utensils as if it were old-fashioned Teflon. ... Read more
