Product Description

Amazon.com

Contemporary Stainless is for home chefs who place as much importance on cookware style as they do on performance. The sleek, modern vessels in this line have curvaceous and smooth flared tulip shapes that create a stunning presence while heating on a stovetop or hanging from a pot rack. The brushed steel exteriors are a beautiful complement to professional stainless-steel appliances and are less likely to show baked-on grease or wear than a polished finish can. Gracefully curved stainless-steel handles are comfortable to clutch and are forked in a half-moon shape at the riveted base to prevent heat from transferring down the shaft. Glass covers are convenient for watching food cook and have curved handles plus wide-banded stainless-steel rims for durability.

Heating in this 2-quart chef's pan is sure to satisfy the performance requirements of discerning cooks. The pan boasts triple-layer construction with stainless-steel exteriors bonded over a full aluminum core that extends up the sides as well as through the bottom. Aluminum is an excellent heat conductor, providing consistent cooking for small portions of stovetop macaroni and cheese, tomato sauce, or mussels in broth. The stainless-steel pan is safe in the oven and can withstand broiler temperatures as well as the use of metal utensils. However, the lid is oven-safe only to 450 degrees F. All Contemporary Stainless is dishwasher-safe for quick cleanup and is covered by a lifetime warranty.--Cristina Vaamonde

From the Manufacturer

As the kitchen becomes the social center of more and more American homes, consumers are focusing greater attention on the details of kitchen design. Now, style-conscious home chefs with a taste for all things modern have a new line of cookware to call their own: Calphalon Contemporary Stainless.

Calphalon Contemporary Stainless brings stunning, contemporary design into the home kitchen. Crafted from lustrous, brushed stainless steel and featuring clean lines and curvaceous silhouettes, Calphalon Contemporary Stainless expresses the very soul of modern style. Sweepingly sexy, sculpted handles and subtly domed glass covers lend additional panache to each piece.

Professional, Versatile, Comfortable

Calphalon Contemporary Stainless features tri-ply construction--the choice of many professional chefs. A layer of heavy-gauge aluminum, sandwiched between the stainless-steel interior and exterior of each pan, provides superb conductivity and even heating throughout the vessel.

Each uniquely shaped Calphalon Contemporary Stainless vessel is designed to accommodate several cooking techniques. Pans are ideal for use on the stovetop, in the oven, and even in the broiler. They'll also look fabulous on your table, so you can use them for serving, too.

Calphalon Contemporary Stainless makes it easy to keep an eye on what you're cooking. Sparkling glass covers let you monitor a whole stovetop full of pans at a glance. The cookware also features long, sculpted handles that are as comfortable as they are beautiful. Not only do they feel great in your hand, they're designed to stay cool on the stovetop.

Easy Cleanup

Calphalon Contemporary Stainless is 100 percent dishwasher-safe for effortless cleanup. (That's a feature you'll appreciate at the end of a long evening of entertaining.) You can also hand wash your pans using a dishcloth and hot sudsy water. For occasional polishing, we recommend Bar Keeper's Friend.

Features

  • Distinctive, Contemporary Design
    Calphalon Contemporary Stainless cookware's sleek, curved design makes a striking statement when displayed on pot racks or open shelves or in glass-front cabinets.

  • Versatility
    The Calphalon Contemporary Stainless vessel shapes are suitable for a wide variety of techniques and recipes--and for serving in style, too.

  • Tri-ply Construction
    The choice of many professional chefs, tri-ply construction offers great cooking results on the stove, in the oven, and in the broiler.

  • Full Aluminum Core
    Sandwiched between the stainless-steel interior and exterior of each pan, the pan's full aluminum core provides superb conductivity and even heating.

  • Brushed Stainless-Steel Exteriors
    Not only beautiful to look at, these exteriors help hide wear and help promote incredibly long life for the vessels.

  • Convenience
    The pans feature long handles that stay cool and comfortable on the stovetop, as well as glass lids that are oven-safe to 450 degrees F and that securely fit the vessels, making it easy to keep an eye on what you're cooking.

  • Dishwasher-Safe
    The dishwasher-safe nature of the vessels makes for easy cleanup, which is especially nice when entertaining or when serving large numbers of people.

  • Lifetime Warranty

Product Description

It's a saucepan. It's a fry pan. It's the chameleon of cookware! Incorporating features of several vessels, the chef's pan has a personality all its own. The gently curving sides near the pan bottom graciously accept a balloon whisk. The rolled, matte-finish Cool Touch handle stays cool on the stove top and provides a stable grip. Plus, the wider mouth offers more efficient evaporation than a standard saucepan can. Calphalon's chef's pans are designed for easy cooking, easy cleanup, and maximum performance.

First of all, in case you're concerned, let me say that the quality of Calphalon's stainless cookware has greatly improved as they have recently made the switch from not-so-good impact-bonded stainless bottom (Simply Stainless) to a tri-ply construction that's on par with All-Clad.

As a result, this pan offers very good heat retention and distribution (i.e. no hot spots), and clean-up is a breeze. Since I got this pan, I have been using it for every thing from small batches of soup, cheese sauce for mac'n'cheese, spinach filling for spanakopita... And with that rounded bottom, I cannot wait to make risotto!

Also, the glass lid fits very nicely and makes it easy to watch what's going on inside your pan.

This is not just a great value for the price -it's a great pan, which just happens to have an unbeatable price.

This item is a great starter to the Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel cookware line. It's a solid product that looks great and functions as it's pricier siblings. Cooking with this has been a pleasure and don't be surprised if you end up buying the rest of the cookware in the series. I should not that the pot gets hot very fast and the handle can be hot but is rather cool towards the end.

If you have a hanging pot-rack, then this would make you very happy.

One last thing, if you were wodering why the item is so cheap, well, it's meant to hook you into buying more... It has the same build quality as the rest of the cookware in the line.

I've had this pot for about a month now, and use it often. The handle on the pot stays cool, it's a great size, the shape is perfect for stirring, the see-through lid is wonderful, and the price is excellent. My only complaint is that it's been hell to clean. I don't have a dishwasher, so I scrub (and scrub and scrub) by hand, but there always seems to be a thin film of whatever food I was cooking stuck to the bottom (even with overnight soaking), and the inside becomes weirdly discolored even after I clean it, from doing non-messy things like boiling pasta. Bar Keeper's Friend helps a bit, but this pot literally takes me 15 minutes to even get it passably clean (forget new-looking/shiny).

We love this stainless steel chef's pan. It is thick and it retains heat very well. I use it for stir fry as well as cooking rice. Since it does not have any coating we do not worry when we scratch it. I would highly recommend it.

This sause pan does a good job cooking as I expected it to. I love how easy it is to clean. I use it almost every day and I have never had to scrub it with SOS pads or clenser. It is almost as easy as a non-stick pan to clean.

I'm enjoying this pot - got it a few months ago and find that it heats quickly, cooks without sticking despite being stainless, and cleans easily. The pot handle stays cool but the lid handle gets hot except when simmering - you need a potholder to pick up the lid.

I have a set of calphalon pans...love them...but was in need of a mid size pan. I use this size more than the 1 quart or 3 quart that came with the set. Perfect size for everyday use...excellent product and you simply can't find a better price!!!!
