The down side, for some folks I guess, would be the size. For me, cooking for 2 people max, it is perfect. I can get 2 good sized pancakes on it, 5 or 6 big strips of bacon, or a nice heap of potatoes on it (not all at the same time of course!). If you have more mouths to feed, you might want to get a double burner griddle. Overall, it's a wonderful thing to have around in the morning.
Someone had told me that using canola spray oils (like Pam) can cause a sticky buildup on non-stick surfaces which are difficult to come off and then end up burning on and ruining a surface like the Calphalon. I really don't know if it's true or if the pan has just lost its non-stick properties over time. The ONLY non-stick cookware we've ever purchased which has not ever lost its non-stick surface after a few years are some high end ("expensive") stuff we bought at Costco from one of their traveling road shows.
But I contacted Calphalon. They said they the cookware has a lifetime warranty and all we have to do is pay shipping to send in the pan and they will replace it free.
What REALLY disturbs me about this pan is that it slides over the stove top grates. This may not be a problem on glass cooktops but on the standard ceramic type grates that came with our GE Profile gas oven/cooktop, this griddle is the ONLY one of our pans that slides around. I consider that potentially dangerous.
I would spend the money to ship back and replace, but I certainly would not one new again.
1. Diminished non-stick capability. Not as non-stick as it was when it was first purchased.
2. Due to diminished non-stick I use oil or butter when cooking on the pan which results in a sticky residue being left on the surface. This sticky residue does not come off easily. I have to scrape and rub it off.
3. Pan is slightly warped. Causes eggs to slide to one side instead of staying in the middle of the pan.
Great price, and ususal good shipping from Amazon.
Then there's the non-stick interior that isn't really non-stick. Not only does it do only a mediocre job of keeping food from sticking, you still can't scrub off the reminder without damaging what little non-stick there is. We have the same problem I saw mentioned in another review, a blackish sticky buildup that can't be cleaned off. Looks more like cast iron than non-stick these days.
I bought this because I thought it would be a better performer than the cheaper models but feel I just threw away the extra cash. I may send it in and see if the warranty covers it, but the language in their policy includes excuses for lack of 'proper care'. Because of the pan's warping problem we somewhat wrote this pan off as far as care goes and it looks easily twice as old as it is. So I don't really want to spend another 10-15 bucks to ship it to them only to be told I didn't take proper care of it, even though I did... until after it went bad.

I gave it 4 stars because it is made from aluminum and the fact remains it will never heat as evenly as cast iron, but the teflon coating is still on it after 3 years of regular... Read morePublished on December 8, 2012 by BETTY ESHBAUGH
