Product Description

Amazon.com

This 10-piece cookware set is deluxe and outfits a kitchen for a lifetime of essential cooking needs. The virtues of Calphalon's anodized aluminum are highly praised among cooks: even heat distribution, stick-resistant surfaces, quick heating and cooling, durable construction, and attractive design. The set includes two fry pans (or omelet pans, as Calphalon calls them), 8 and 10 inches, for individual and larger portions; two lidded saucepans, 2-1/2 and 4-1/2 quarts, perfect for making a variety of sauces, simmering side dishes, or cooking small batches of soup; an 8-quart lidded stockpot that will handle the gamut from pasta to soup to corn; and a true gem, a 3-quart sauté pan with a lid, great for browning, braising, and making vegetables or sauces. The details of these pots make them especially satisfying to use: riveted stainless-steel handles are sturdy and stay cool while cooking, lids fit easily and seal in juices, the stick-resistant finish means you need only use a minimum amount of oil, and the pans are safe for the oven and broiler. Care for these pans with consideration for the long, useful life they offer by always washing them by hand with mild cleaners. --Sherry Smith

After only 4 years the surface of most of my cookware is badly pitted.

For some reason, I can never get eggs to come out right in these pans.

About a year ago when we purchased our new home, I bought this Calphalon set of cookware for my wife (she HATED our Revereware cookware). Initially, I was concerned about microscopic bits of aluminum winding up in our cooked food, but after reading literature on the matter and discussing it with several people, decided to make the purchase.
After a year, we are still very happy with our Calphalon purchase. The heat distribution is wonderful and there are no hot spots. They continue to look great and function perfectly - I would guess that, based on our usage patterns, they will be in our family for several generations. We have a rack above our kitchen "island" where various pots and pans hang - our Calphalon set is (and will continue to be) proudly displayed for all to see.
Be aware, this cookware does not have a non-stick surface - it is possible to burn foods and have them stick to the pans. Just be sure to take appropriate precations and you'll be fine!

Because cooking is my main hobby, I'm always looking for better equipment. Once I found Calphalon, however, I stopped looking for cookware. This is very nearly the ideal cookware and the 10-pc starter set the very nearly ideal basic package. Made of heavy-gauge anodized aluminum, each pan absorbs heat evenly and without hot spots. Moreover, all of the pans come with steel handles so that they can go from cooktop to oven and back. Because they are anodized aluminum, moreover, health concerns about using aluminum cookware are abated. Clean up is a breeze. The surface is surprisingly stick resistant, given that it is not non-stick. And any residue that proves stubborn gives way to Comet and a bit of elbow grease.
A couple of cautions/quibbles. First, I do not use Calphalon's anodized aluminum pans to cook eggs. For some reason, I can never get eggs to come out right in these pans. Pick up a non-stick Calphalon pan for eggs. Second, I don't cook highly acidic sauces (like tomato) in Calphalon because of lingering concerns about aluminum. I use a Le Cruscet enameled cast iron pot for such sauces. Finally, the fry pans in this set are a bit small. You'll want a wok or larger pan for stir-frying. But that's why they call it a starter set!

I have been using Calphalon commercial anodized pots for over 5 years now, and just got the opportunity to purchase another set--the old ones were still in great shape, I gave the old ones to a needy friend. Aside from a nasty burn I received from grabbing one of the handles with a bare hand right after I had taken it out from under the broiler, I have never had any troubles at all with this line of cookware.
I would recommend these pots to anyone, but any new owner must NOT put the pots and pans in the dishwasher!!! The chlorine in automatic dishwasher detergents will react with the anodized aluminum and damage to the surface will occur. This is stated clearly in the pamphlets that come in the box.
The minor inconvience of handwashing your pots is more than outweighed by the fantastic heat conduction of the aluminum, and the anodized coating will brown foods perfectly with little effort. Simply deglazing a pan with a little water will remove most of the browned bits left on the pan, leaving a minimal amount of residue to remove later.

We purchased our Calphalon Commercial over 8 years ago, and have loved them continuously. I cook daily, often using the same pot 2 or 3 times a day for different dishes, and have not had any of the problems listed here. In fact, one night my husband was helping me cook dessert at a dinner party and left a pot on the stove with the burner on. The burner was on for about 24 hours before I noticed it. The pot - still in perfect condition. The only reasons I can think of for the reports that the surface deteriorates after use is that either the users are not following proper directions from the manufacturer OR that I was lucky enough to purchase my Commercial anodized BEFORE the Toledo, Ohio company was sold a few years ago and the new owner does not produce as high quality a pot as the old Calphalon (which I have had friends comment to me about).

I bought this set expecting it to last a long long time. I must admit that I was a little wary about buying aluminum cookware after links to Alzheimer's disease being publicised in medical journals, but was reassured by the non reactive claim for the hard anodized surface. My mistake.
After only 4 years the surface of most of my cookware is badly pitted. The saucepans are showing the silver aluminum layer underneath. So much for the non-reactive surface claim.
And no- I haven't put this in the dishwaser - just cleaned it per the instructions.
I'm junking this set and getting one with a true non reactive stainless steel cooking surface.
A real waste of money. My old cheapy T-Fal non-stick lasted just as long.

I purchased this set two years ago after going through numerous cookware sets during the course of my marriage. I recommend Calphalon cookware to everyone who's in the market for cookware. You'll never buy another set.
Since this product is not non-stick I recommend picking up one or two of their non-stick fry pans for ease of cooking certain items like eggs. :)
