  • And All I Got Was A Crummy Omelette Pan . . .

    Oct 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Non-stick, even heating
    Cons: only one pan

    Summary: I am completely and thoroughly envious of all of you that have complete sets of Calphalon cookware because all I got was a lousy omelette pan and a spatula in my Christmas stocking a couple years back. I can tell you everything you want to ... read more

  • Who knew dimples could be a BAD thing?

    Feb 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Even heating, durable
    Cons: WAY too hard to clean for non-stick, oven safe only to 375

    Summary: Five years ago, we received Calphalon's Pots & Pans for our wedding and were happy to have our first set of "heavy-duty" cookware. Unfortunately, these pans failed to live up to the standards implied by the Calphalon name and have turned me off to the ... read more

  • I love these pans!

    Aug 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive, easy to use and durable
    Cons: none

    Summary: I purchased my Calphalon Cookware set about 2 years ago and they have been great. I've owned several non-stick cookware sets over the past 15 years, mostly Wear-Ever and Regal sets. All of them have shown wear and tear more quickly than the Calphalon ... read more

  • Spend a little extra to get better

    Pros: Good starter set
    Cons: Will not last more than a few years...

    Summary: Right after getting married, my husband and I had our hearts set on buying Calphalon cookware. We'd thought it was the best, and were looking forward to having fun with it. Being newly married, and having a great number of other items to buy, we decided ... read more

    Pros: easy to clean, cooks beautifully, durable
    Cons: NONE

    Summary: Due to a string of events beyond my control, I found myself having to move in a hurry several hundred miles. In the course of the move, my pots and pans were left behind. My husband and I were in dire financial straights, and finding a job was proving ... read more

  • I'm now a chef!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to cook with, no sticking
    Cons: a little expensive

    Summary: I bought this set of pans for my daughter-in-law last Christmas. She raved about them so much I bought a set for myself. I have been married over 35 years and have owned several sets of cookware. Non of the pans I've ever owned holds a ... read more

    Nov 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durable
    Cons: Texture

    Summary: My wife raved about Calphalon, so I, being the good intentioned but not well trained husband, bought her the Pots and Pans set. I found out later that this was not the Calphalon she wanted (I didn't know there was more than one type). Our set ... read more

  • "Fake" Calphalon doesn't measure up to the real McCoy

    Nov 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice, heats evenly
    Cons: Nonstick isn't nonstick after awhile, hard to clean

    Summary: As an amateur gourmet, I was really excited a few years ago to see that Calphalon had developed a lower-priced version of their beautiful hard-anodized cookware. For just over $100 (on sale) I was able to buy two nice pieces of the Pots 'n Pans line. I ... read more

  • Doesn't pay over time

    Oct 24, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice even heating
    Cons: expensive, easily trashed

    Summary: My husband and I were given a basic set of Calphalon cookware as a wedding gift 17 years ago. We've used it for 10 years (excluding a 7 year period when it was in storage while we were overseas). It is great for cooking and the heat distribution ... read more

  • It's All Good!

    Oct 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes me look like a better cook than I actually am
    Cons: Recommended manual cleaning

    Summary: Well, I must admit that I didn't actually buy my pots and pans set. My wife (at the time my fiance) and I registered for them prior to our wedding. At the time, I was a relatively new college graduate and while in college, had tried numerous different ... read more

  • Pizza Pan Replaces Stone!

    Oct 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: So Stick, Crisp Crust, Simple Cooking
    Cons: One Handle

    Summary: My home made pizzas are the talk of the neighborhood. I'm always asked to make them for get togethers. My neighbors and friends love the crisp toasty crust that only comes from cooking on a pizza stone. You know, one of those big, heavy platters of ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Even heating & Quick - flipping
    Cons: Can be sticky if not careful

    Summary: When it comes to the Calphalon saute pan, you can't go wrong! I am a guy that has been cooking since I was a kid, so I have learned my way around the kitchen a little. My wife and I have the typical American kitchen, with pots and pans of all different ... read more

  • Pots and Pans by Calphalon: really good starter set

    Sep 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: lightweight, durable, reliable, heat fast and evenly
    Cons: hard to clean for non-stick cookware

    Summary: When we first set up our household, we did it on the cheap side: went to the Goodwill, picked out the best of the kitchenwares available, piles of unmatching silverware, knives that seemed relatively solid. While this frugality meant we were able to ... read more

  • Lasting Cookware

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durable
    Cons: Needs to be washed by hand

    Summary: For the past two years on my birthday my mother has been sending me a piece of Calphalon cookware. Let me start by saying that I come from a family involved in food service. My step-father, who is a chef, used these pots and pans all through my childhood ... read more

  • I only have a few pieces

    Jul 31, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to clean - no scrubbing
    Cons: Pricey

    Summary: I've got a collection of old pots and pans dating back 18 years and they were starting to go. A sale on the Calphalon Pot and Pans at Macy's caught my eye and since I had heard so much about Calphalon I thought I'd try one piece. Boy is this great ... read more

    Pros: cheap intro to calphalon
    Cons: non-stick surface disappears

    Summary: I bought this product wanting to move from Farberware which i grew up with to a Calphalon line. The first few uses things slid out as expected but I was somewhat disappointed in seeing all of my food with the "pebble pimples" from the nonstick ... read more

  • Great except for wok

    May 31, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: no teflon, heats quickly, not too expensive
    Cons: a little sticky, not a great wok

    Summary: I have been using my Calphalon pots, pans and wok for about 2 years. I cook everyday. I like that the Calphalon pots and pans do not have teflon yet are fairly non stick. You can't exactly fry an egg without oil, but you don't need much ... read more

  • Heavy Duty Flavor

    May 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Produces great flavor, non stick, easy cleaning
    Cons: Heavy

    Summary: I love this pan. I bought the chicken fryer because I was tired of my cooking falling out of the shallow fryers I had used in the past. I knew it was a little pricey, $60, but I wanted a real good pan, so I bought it. I can tell you that I absolutely ... read more

  • This review isn't a pan, but ...

    May 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy; heat retention and evenness
    Cons: Some foods stick quite badly; handles get hot

    Summary: Calphalon cookware is some of the most expensive cookware on the market targeted at the home cook. Does its performance in the kitchen merit the expense? For the serious home cook, I'd say yes. Calphalon is, first and foremost, durable. I've ... read more

    Cons: non-stick coating rubs off after heavy use

    Summary: We were given a 10-piece set of Calphalon Pots & Pans as a wedding gift 2 & 1/2 years ago. We considered heavier Calphalon cookware, but liked the lighter weight and stay-cool handles. My husband and I have both been extremely pleased. I am a ... read more
