Calphalon Nonstick Cookware Set

This small calphalon nonstick cookware set will come in handy for anyone who prefers nonstick cooking surfaces.

Use these pans to easily cook omelets and other egg dishes, sauces, vegetables and rice without the hassles of your food sticking to the pan.

The stockpot is good for making soups, pasta and ears of corn. Clean up is a breezeĀ… just wipe it out with your dishcloth.

Calphalon Positive Features

This Calphalon nonstick cookware set is made of durable hard-anodized aluminum, providing excellent heat conduction to cook food evenly and quickly. The interiors are double-coated with Calphalon's nonstick surface to keep food from sticking. This surface also makes cleaning up very simple.

The handles are made of stainless steel with a decorative blasted satin finish. The handles are comfortable and easy to grip. They are riveted on securely. The domed lids are made of attractively brushed stainless steel.

A 10 year warranty covers all manufacturing defects.


In about half the cases studied, the nonstick coating begins to peel off after only a reasonable amount of use, so they are not suitable to be used heavily. Once the coating begins to come off, food sticks and burns. Even when following the manufacturer's instructions to only use certain utensils, this seems to happen.

They are not dishwasher safe. The handles get hot quickly. For the price, the pans should hold up better in general. This Calphalon hard anodized cookware set is also very small. If you have a family to feed, you may want to choose larger pans.

Overall, the Calphalon nonstick cookware set did not meet the normal standards we expect from Calphalon. About half of the testers were happy with this purchase, while the other half were very disappointed. If you feel this set will still fill a need in your kitchen, go ahead and give it a try.

If you are not put off by the price and the possibility that the nonstick coating may deteriorate, you may very well be one of the happy people who get a deal on this Calphalon set. If this is pricey for you, you may not want to risk it.
