Product Description

Size: Roaster with V-Rack

How do Calphalon Contemporary Stainless roasters ensure superb results? They’re made of tri-ply aluminum, the ideal material for consistent heat conduction. They feature low sides, so air circulates freely around your roast and moisture evaporates quickly. They stay level, even after years of high heat exposure, and they’re accompanied by our V-shaped roasting rack! If you’ve never tried slow-roasted foods, now’s the time to take the time.

Perfect size for sauces and soups, as in a can of soup.

Size Name: Roaster with V-Rack
I purchased this pan to tackle a prime rib roast for Christmas dinner. The pan itself is very heavy, solid and distrubutes the heat well. One thing I do not like about other roasting pans that I have purchased is sometimes the pan juices seem to burn in the oven which results in no "pan goodness" to make gravy with. I have used this pan multiple times and never had that issue- the bits and pieces will brown, but do not get a burned flavor. I attribute this to the construction of the pan and the heaviness of the weight. I would give the pan a solid 5 stars, but the rack that comes with this pan immediately started peeling and rusting even though I ran it in the dishwasher and promptly removed it. So what is a girl to do?

I bought the William Bounds silicon roasting rack (from Amazon) and now use this with my pan. I could have purchased a replacement rack for $19 or paid shipping and handling to get a replacement rack through the warranty, but I have been very impressed with the William Bounds rack and it fits perfectly in the pan. Clean up is a snap- both pieces go right in the dishwasher and come out looking as if I just pulled them out of the box for the first time. Plus, the WB rack has a slightly smaller grid so even on the coldest of days I can have familiy over (about 20 people) and still serve roasted chicken breasts with baked potatoes and salad in a snap.

Size Name: 8-quart Dutch Oven
This pot measures about 12.25" inches across the top, and about 4.6" inches tall.

The big pot that comes with most cookware sets is only about 5 or 6 quarts, anything bigger and you are usually looking at stockpots (I already have them). I wanted something bigger, but without the tall sides. I didn't want the heavy weight of a cast iron dutch oven. I didn't want nonstick, because no matter how good it is, it always wears out eventually. I didn't want aluminum, because it will pit with certain foods. I also wanted a pot that I could use on the stove, as well as in the oven.

This Calphalon Contemporary Stainless 8-Quart Dutch Oven fit my needs perfectly. It is fully tri-ply stainless steel (not just the bottom). It is dishwasher, oven, and broiler safe (up to 500°F, although I believe the lid is only safe up to 450°F). It will work with any stove top, including induction. It comes with a lifetime warranty. It cooks great, and cleans up nice (use a little "Bar Keepers Friend" to keep your stainless steel shiny and new looking).

The only negative is; the lip is not beveled, which can cause liquid to run down the side when pouring.

The price is very reasonable considering it'll last you a lifetime (my mom has some try-ply stainless steel pots that are over 50 years old). The only other pots that I found that compared in size and quality to this one, were more than twice the price. So I'm very glad I found this one.

All-in-all, it's a very versatile pot (you can cook small things in a big pot...but you can't cook big things in a small pot).

Size Name: 13-Piece Set Verified Purchase
We all have had kitchen mishaps/nightmares that we chuckle about, and rarely do we let anyone outside the home know about them, but here goes.

I received this set of pots one year ago, and I have put them through a testing regime that even Calphalon would cringe at - and would rightly void any warranty on. Before I start this story you should know I have a Wolf stove - restaurant grade, so it puts our more heat than the normal home stove and has an extreme ventilation system (thank goodness).

First disaster - One dinner I placed some sauce in a pot to thicken and then we had a crisis happened at the back of our property that made us rush out of the house to address - forgetting the pots on the stove. Six hours later we returned home - the sauce was gone and charcoal remained at the bottom of the pan. I thought the pot was shot. A little Bar Keepers and elbow grease and (to my amazement) the pot was as good as new.

Second disaster - both my hubby and I were exhausted from work and put some food on to boil (I use a Foodsaver so it's the ol' `boil in a bag' meal bag in those instances), but we both fell asleep waiting for dinner. At 3AM when I woke up (Hubby still snoring) the water was long gone in the pan and the bag had turned to charcoal - way beyond the melted bag stage - try `fused to the pan' stage. OK, the pot is a goner - nope, with elbow grease and Bar Keepers as good as new.

Third disaster - dinner's back on the stove and one of our horses went down at the back of the property. Back out the door we went forgetting the pots. When we returned to the house we were so exhausted we went to bed forgetting about dinner.

Size Name: 13-Piece Set
Calphalon Contemporary is as good as All Clad or any other cookware line on the market, and better than most.

Great heat distribution and extremely high efficiency. You actually have to learn to cook with less power than what you're used to.
Can be used with any cooktop, electric coil, flat electric, gas and induction. (These are downright amazing with induction!)
Doesn't scratch or lose its surface like any non-stick will do
Can use metal or nylon utensils
Non-stick results if used according to directions.
Easy to clean if you use Barkeeper's Friend.
Will be the last cookware you'll have to buy.

I also got the wok, and am thinking about getting another. With two of these woks, I could cook anything and rule the world.
Unfortunately, Amazon is currently out of the woks, so I have to wait for them to restock.

Unfortunately right now Amazon is not the price leader. They often have a $30-$50 discount from the retail $499, but as I write the review the price is back up to list.
Other sources also offer additional free pieces, gift cards, etc. You'll have to weigh that against Amazon's no sales tax.
If you shop hard, you can usually find a 20% coupon elsewhere, plus extra items. I hope Amazon sharpens their pencils soon.

Also, a lot of the Amazon listings under Calphalon Contemporary are for external vendors, so if you see above-list prices, keep on scrolling down to find the Amazon entry.
By the way, even if you don't get these from Amazon, avoid Macy's, who lists this set at $549 plus tax.

Notes after ten months of use (December 28, 2011):

If you can't tell, I really like this stuff, so I got the 8 quart dutch oven for Christmas 2011.
