Calphalon’s high-quality nonstick set comes with a handful of items for a moderate price and plenty of options for meals.
You’ll be saving yourself time and money by going nonstick. Calphalon’s 10-piece cookware set is a popular collection that gives you a wide selection of durable materials with a cool metallic finish.
Calphalon is a well-established company within the cooking industry, producing everything from cookware to instructional videos for recipes.
I’m not big on spending big bucks just to make my cookware flashy. That’s why Calphalon’s 10-piece set is perfect for any size household. It sounds like a bit of a price splurge if you live by yourself or one other person. On the other hand, you’ll have a lot more options for food should the need occur.
As you’ll see below, the pots and pants contain enough volume and surface area to make multiple meals in one sitting.
What’s in the Set?
This set’s price was recently cut in half and for six primary pieces and four covers, its a bit of a bargain if you ask us. So what are you getting for your money?
- 10-inch omelette pan.
- 12-inch omelette pan.
- 2-quart saucepan plus lid.
- 3-quart saucepan plus lid.
- 3-quart sauté pan plus lid.
- 8-quart stock pot plus lid.
The lids are made of glass, so you can look through and check the progress of your foods while they cook on the stove or in the oven (up to 450° ). The pots and pans themselves work best with all stovetops with the exception of induction.
Personally, I enjoyed the addition of the small but noticeable spouts on the sauté and saucepans along with the stock pot. Whatever Calphalon can provide me in order to reduce the mess I might make always earns them loyalty points.
The items in this set are constructed out of PFOA-free, anodized aluminum. PFOA stands for Perfluorooctanoic acid, a chemical that occurs commonly in most industrial manufacturing processes. Anodized refers to the process of purging all potentially harmful chemicals from the cookware before they are finished.
With all the murmurs of health complications resulting from metal cookware, you can rest assured that Calphalon takes great care in the safety of their products. Nonstick will take an extra minute or two to heat up but beyond that there’s really no major drawbacks.
With this particular nonstick set, you may see other customers or other websites advertising that the cookware is safe for 500° temperatures. We strongly advise against putting the pots and pans in the oven at this temperature as it begins to affect the nonstick feature. You’re better off searching for Calphalon bakeware specifically.
Things to Note
While Calphalon does state that this set is safe to use with utensils of various types, there are some customers that have complained of their pots and pans scratching and scaring after about a year or so. These cases are not very common, but on the bright side, this particular set comes with a lifetime warranty should defects occur.
