Great Quality, Beautiful to cook in and Beautiful Presentation
I am a big cooking fan. Cast Iron, Stainless Steel, Ceramic and more.
After such much trouble with my Ceramic Skillets staining my Glass Top Cook Stove I bought two Calphalon , a 12 Skillet and this one. I don't like the other one with the long handle, it slides eggs to the side and makes them look ugly (A customer at the Container Store heard me talking about this and giggled, and told me her's did the same thing. This one cooks perfect !
It is this one I have become to truly admire. With the smallest amount of oil/butter (1/2 Teaspoon) I pour it in, use a paper towel to wipe it around the pan and cook. Eggs came out perfect, scrambled and Sunny Side up. Rice was next, it always sticks in all the above pans. Nope, after 45 minutes in the oven, with Jasmine Rice, Water and Chicken, the pan cleaned up in 1 second, not one burned grain.. I was amazed.
Look all cooks, there is no truly Nonstick Pan, just as Stainless Steel is just that 'Stain-Less'
This pan heats up slower, you have to give it a few minutes. Keep it on no higher than medium. Use only Silicone Spatulas (with any non stick) and they will last a long time. Don't push the heat on any non stick.
But to me, the non - stick is nice, but this pan is simply Beautiful to present food with. This was at first my , hmm, I didn't like how thin it was, I wanted more of a Stock Pot , heavier, better for slow cooking. But in the end, 3 weeks later, I have found this to be my Go-To Pan, it is simply Amazing. I would so buy and recommend this as your main cooking Pan.

HAND WASH ONLY
Purchased this CALPHALON EVERYDAY PAN as first piece to replace REVERE WARE that went missing during recent move. It's a beautiful pan that does everything as advertised. My bad for not reading the copy in the AMAZON.COM listing. CALPHALON CLASSIC COOKWARE IS HAND WASH ONLY. For another $10 for the pan, the CONTEMPORARY style is dishwasher safe. Fortunately, the pan wipes clean with a soft sponge. Fine for me. I'm just not sure the non-stick inside and anodized outside will last like Revere stainless steel and copper.

This pan is very well made. The handles are firmly attached, the lid fits snuggly and the pan is easy to clean. I love that the pan is light weight for its size. I give this pan 4 stars though because the non-stick coating scarred the first week of use. The scratch was my own fault but the coating is very thin. I think a good quality product should be able to handle a few minor mishaps in the kitchen. As it is I don't this pan will last more than a few years before it has to be replaced.

It's just okay. It was much thinner metal than the last Calphalon pan I bought, wondering if it's legit?

Size is good
I like the size and handles very much. However, the pan does not sit evenly on my glass stove top.

Easy to clean and nothing sticks!
Love this pan. Very easy to clean. The hard anodized exterior heats up fast and cooks evenly. I love that you can start your dish on the stovetop and finish in the oven. Great for one pot meals.

Wife, who does most of the cooking, loves it. She doesn't like it for making gravy, a bit too shallow, but otherwise she uses it everyday.

Happy to Have it!
Quite pleased with this pan, have used it frequently and love it! The glass lid is nice and heavy, the pan is not however, and easy for me to manage.
