depth of these pans? 'Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 10-Inch & 12-Inch Omelet Combo Pack'... can someone please tell the depth of these pans? Aug 6, 2008
I just bought them and had the same question. It is about 2" deep on the 10inch to the top of the lip. And it is about 2 1/2" on the 12 inch to the top of the lip. Hope that helps! My farberware milennium was a bit deeper, but the surface didn't last. I'm hoping this one does. I haven't tried yet, but from all the reviews, it looks like the handles do stay cool.
I use non stick utensils to keep the coating in good shape. These pans are a great purchase.
are they recommended for glass top ranges? Jun 30, 2013
As far as I know they are, is your glass top range the Induction type that only heat up when you place a unit on the stove, if it is just remember to experiment with the heat settings, as these pans use a lot less heat to cook with
Can you put these in the dishwasher? Mar 9, 2013
Some of the Calphalon contemporary items are marked "dishwasher safe" both on the packaging and on the bottom of the item -- but there's a major BUT to this. You have to check the size of the item. For example, the 12" skillet, because of its flared sides, won't fit in my dishwasher. I have another item, not sure what it's called, a rectangular griddle pan that fits over two burners, with a similar problem. The handles are angled outwards and that makes it too long for my dishwasher. Smaller items, such as the 10" skillet, do fit and have been repeatedly washed with no difficulty or evidence of damage,
According to the Calphalon site it is Oven safe to 450°F. Not safe for broiler use. http://www.calphalon.com/Pages/Content/Use-And-Care/Calphalon-Contemporary-Nonstick.aspx
Is the non-stick interior made of Teflon (a substance I'm really trying to get away from)? Feb 16, 2013
this is an anodized aluminum. basic aluminum that is special treated in order to provide even heat. No teflon.
How hot do the handles get? I've never had pans without some sort of coating on the handle. Oct 12, 2014
Using them on the stovetop I've never had a problem picking them up. Using them in the oven is a VERY different story - they get as hot as the pan!
No the pans do not have the induction symbol on the bottom and they donot respond to a magnet. My opinion at this point is that they are not good for induction cook tops
