Second, the bottom and sides meet in a slope, a curve. Most cast iron skillets are sharply angled at that juncture. The curved corner makes foods easier to move around (fried eggs, for example; also scrapple, burgers, steaks, and grilled cheese sammys) or to stir (stews and the like). The curved corner also makes it easier to clean - nothing gets stuck in the angle between bottom and sides.
I've had this skillet for a little over three weeks and it has performed up to my every expectation. It has taken additional seasoning well (the bottom is now almost as slick as Teflon - some of that may be due to using chain mail on it). My only criticism I have is that Calphalon doesn't make 10" and 8" versions of this skillet.
I own a full set of stainless steel cookware that I use when needed, but for my single skillet meals this is the workhorse that is left clean and ready to use on my stove top.
If you've never owned cast iron do a quick google on the care, the short of it is that the pan needs to have a layer of oil protecting it from water/air that will cause rust(rust is oxygen and Iron, so not toxic, but will reduce the pan's life).
If you never owned or cooked with cast iron that might seem high maintenance, but I find it easier to take care of than a pan with a non-stick surface.
If you burn something on cast iron you can scrub it quick with steel wool, heat it up, and then just wipe it with olive oil and its back to original condition.
Between the stainless steel set, and this cast iron pan, my cookware will last me decades. Whereas all of my non-sticks lasted a couple years before the coating started to flake off into my food(I'm sure the coatings were all non-toxic and inert, but the idea that I've eaten so much Teflon in my life weirds me out).
While stainless steel is a litter easier to clean(stainless can be put in a dishwasher, cast iron you should not), I end up using this pan more because it has a lot more thermal mass, which results in the heat being much more even and consistent.
I originally bought this just to sear my rib-eyes(if you've never had flat iron high heat rib-eyes, you've never truly lived), but end up using it for most stove top cooking because of heat management and easy of cleaning.
I wish I would have gone this route the very first cookware I bought!
My last two photos compare a 12 inch Lodge and Calphalon. Very similar in size. As I said, I do like the Calphalon inside slope. YES, the Calphalon (6 lbs, 9 oz) weighs less than the Lodge (7 lbs, 14 oz), more than a pound.
I do not recommend this product at all.
It's heavy, very heavy
No need to wash, I just wipe it out with tissue paper or with cotton towel.
Use iron and steel utensils for cooking. Non stick cookware are not healthy compared to the iron and stainless steel.
Thanks and regards

Este producto me lo mandaron de Amazon EUA. Llego bien empacado y sin problemas en la fecha estimada. Tenia algo de dudas por ser algo grande y si es pesado, pero llego en excelentes condiciones.
Yes it is heavy but after all it is cast iron and it does have a little grip piece opposite the handle so you can easily use two hands. Should anything stick it's quite easy to clean. Seasoning is also simple. This pan should last a lifetime and a great selling point is it works on all cooking surfaces including Induction and camp fire.
I must admit I've always been keen on Calphalon pans and this one doesn't dissapoint. An excellent buy that provides great results. If your in the market for a pan of similar specs i don't know that you'll find anything else with better bang for buck.
