Calphalon Saute Pan

Review of Calphalons Unison 3 Quart Saute Pan

calphalon saute pan
The Calphalon saute pan is perfect for the kitchen.

This 3 quart saute pan has low sides, allowing the air to circulate so the food you are cooking remains crisp. The heavy gauge hard anodized aluminum construction offers fast, even heating with no hotspots.

While it can withstand higher heats without warping, you won't want to use too high of heat to protect the non stick surface.

The cast brushed stainless steel handle stays comfortably cool when used on the stovetop.

Use this pan to saute vegetables, pan fry meats and other everyday tasks.

It can go in the oven up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, giving you more flexibility in the kitchen.

This pan is perfect for a one-pan meal, when you are in a hurry after a long day.

The unique texture of the Calphalon Unison "Sear nonstick" is great for searing meats and seafood. It is also ideal for sauteed vegetables, chops and cutlets, as well as for making sauces and frying.

Calphalon Unison Pros

The Calphalon saute pan has a wide flat bottom, curved side walls and is deep enough to do most jobs. The transparent lid fits well and the domed shape workswell with a full pan. The pan is large enough for a meal for two or for a small family. For a family of four you might want to go to a larger size.

The pan alone weighs 4.6 pounds, so the two handles are helpful when moving the pan full of food. The sauté pan heats quickly and cooks well at lower temperatures.

Customers raved about how easy the pan was to clean.


We found very few consumers cons for this pan. The ones we did find where that the lid handle got hot. You can't use metal utensils and had to be extra careful with the pans surface.

But the most common issue was that the 3 quart was to small for thier family and they had wished they would of bought a larger size.
