Calphalon Omelette Pan



calphalon omelette pans


Omelets are an ideal food for guests because you can personalize them with all manner of cheeses, meats, and vegetables. However, if you don’t have a pan like the Calphalon Omelette pan you may find making this wonderful creation a bit tricky and sticky.

A decent omelette pan should be heavy and have a non-stick surface. About 10” is a great size for a hearty eater, or a couple of eaters who like the same filling and want to share!

Positive Features

While this product might be promoted as an “omelette pan” that doesn’t mean it can’t do the work of many other pans in your kitchen. You can sauté, Fry, braise, make reductions, and sear too.

Utility is very important in my cookware, so the Calphalon Omelette Pan gets applause for diverse functionality. Just remember that you cannot use metal implements with this pan as they will damage the non-stick surface.

Speaking of which, the non-stick surface is a must when making stubborn foods like eggs, and while this product can’t be put in the dishwasher I don’t consider that a drawback.

Any good pan deserves a little more TLC and attention, and non-stick pans as a whole do not appreciate a dishwasher’s harshness. With a very reasonable $49.00 price tag I wouldn’t expect the surface to last forever anyway!

Considerations

Like some other Calphalon pans, the handles have been bolted to the pan, making for hard clean up in the connection area (I’m not sure I like the bolts coming in to contact with food either). Also, if you have a small kitchen this pan might be a little large to easily store when not in use.

Consumer Reviews

The attractive pricing on the Calphalon omelet pan has made it a relatively solid hit among consumers. Buyers of this product say it delivers all the features they most want in a good pan, particularly a heavy bottom and stay-cool handles. The non-stick feature makes clean up fast and easy but for the region where the handles attach.

However, one reviewer brought up an interesting observation. These pans do not seem to work well with glass top stoves. For some reason this seems to warp the bottom of the pan, which in turn makes for uneven cooking.

Features

The Calphalon omelette pan offers the following features:
  • Hard-anodized, heavy gauge aluminum exterior.
  • Non-stick cooking surface
  • Easy clean up
  • Stainless steel brushed handles that stay cool
  • Oven safe to 450 degrees
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Flexibility of use including frying and sauté
  • Durability

Summary

The overall versatility of this pan seems to be a big attracting point even though there are minor disappointments reported, like uneven heating and marginal durability with the non-stick surface.

With that in mind it may be worth watching for a good sale – if you get the pan for less than $50 (or better the 10 and 12 inch pans for $49, as I have seen) then the Calphalon omelette pan will probably be a good investment for your kitchen.
