When I bought my calphalon kettles, I failed to notice that the set included a 5 quart dutch oven - which was smaller than I was used to but serviceable.
I searched on line and found the Simply Calphalon 7 quart dutch oven at a good price AND got free shipping.
It is everything it promised to be - even cooking, easy cleaning, clear cover to monitor soups and stews.
Problem? I was cooking 5 quarts of food and it fed my family...now I cook 7 quarts and we eat that too. Maybe I need to go low fat...

Dutch Ovens... there are plenty out there to look at and chose from. This particular Make and Model "fills the bill" nicely, so to speak. You can use it for unlimited purposes, the handles will not melt (they have a special rubberized wrapping), the Pot & Glass Top are very well made of Calphalon. Lastly the Pot cleans up easily because of its material, and the product is made in America. Hence this product is a win-win in our household, do not be afraid to purchase this product.

This is a prefect size pot for our family, and is getting significant use. We eat a lot of soups and stews. Something we really appreciate are the insulated handles that allow you to pick up the pot, while hot, without using oven pads or mitts. A terrific kitchen tool at a very good proce. We plan on extending our purchases of Calphalon cookware.

This Dutch Oven performs quite well, but, when I order a product in a particular color, I expect it to REMAIN that color. Especially a Calphalon. Yet, about a month ago, as I was HAND washing this pan, all the black just wiped off. It's now silver. I've had it less than a year, and have used it fewer than a dozen times.

I've made several meals in my Dutch Oven and I've been very pleased. No matter how thick the sauce is, nothing has stuck to the pan. I made a cream of turkey soup last night and when I poured it into a bowl, the pot was nearly clean. It's a medium weight - not flimsy and not too heavy to handle. I use it on the top of the stove and in the oven. I would definitely recommend this Dutch Oven.

We specifically got this dutch oven because it matched our pots and pans. I was skeptical because I am used to cast iron ones my granny used. Well this worked just as good! Super easy clean up, and cooks food evenly. The only issue I have is that the highest temp it can go to is 400. Some recipes I have call for a higher temp but I have had no issues with setting it lower and cooking for a tad longer. If this is not an issue for you either, this pot is awesome!!!

This appears to be a durable, relatively lightweight product with an excellent non-stick coating. It would make an excellent pot for the stovetop even if one never intended to put it in the oven. The only drawback I've noticed during the first couple of weeks of usage is that the textured coating doesn't cover the part of the handles close to the pot, so you have to be careful not to touch the handles' exposed metal that could cause a burn when the pot is removed from the oven.

Metal utensils may scratch the Dutch oven's nonstick coating, so use plastic or wooden instruments.

This is a nice high-capacity pan at a good price.

Pros:

* Insulated handles
* Large capacity
* Lightweight
* The non-stick coat really works, and seems durable
* The lid is nice and fits pretty well

Cons:

* The insulation doesn't cover all of the handles, so if you're not careful with your fingers, it's easy to get burned
* The box didn't include any user manual, care guide or warranty information - all you get is the box, the pan, and some plastic wrap

This was exactly as I expected of a Calphalon product. Good quality and well made. Not a real heavy duty product, but for less than $50 bucks it's a good buy.

This pan's depth and width are exactly what I've been looking for in a non-stick pan [I so truly hope this lasts]. So far, I've found this to be excellent for:

1). Making long pasta like spaghetti/linguine/fettuccine/angel hair etc. because the width gives you more room to allow the pasta to boil down into the pot.

2). As a chicken fryer but deeper with much less splattering

3). Stews and soups and sauces. I made a large batch of navy bean soup and a batch of homemade ketchup with this pan and they both came out perfect.

4). Frittatas. I love the fact this is oven safe up to 400ºF which is perfect for making a cheesy frittata.

5). Stir frying. Even though this isn't round like a wok this pot performs great for stir frying and does a great fried rice as well.

6). Sticky buns and cinnamon rolls. Yes, you can bake gooey cinnamon rolls in this pan and all of the buttery, sugary, cinnamon filling stays on the rolls instead of running off like on a regular sheet pan.

This isn't dishwasher safe [not a big deal for me since I always wash every pan I own by hand anyway].

As with all non-stick, the clean-up is a breeze.

The bottom seems very sturdy and so far no warping issues on my gas cook-top.

This is not metal utensil safe as per most non-stick pans so stick with silicone/melamine/nylon/wood utensils.

As someone who has used (and abused) non-stick cookware for years. Here are my tips for helping it last longer:

A. Never use non-stick spray (it's the death knell of non-stick cookware). I learned this the hard way after throwing away a lot of destroyed non-stick pans. The silicone in non-stick spray as an anti-foaming agent is the kryptonite of non-stick cookware and will literally eat away at the non-stick surface.
B. Adhere to the manufacturer's guidelines and only use high heat for a very short time for searing/browning [using high heat for too long will not only damage the non-stick but warp the pan as well].
C. Never rinse your hot pan right away [even with hot water]. Let it cool down on a cool burner or heat proof cook-top before washing.
