Ideal for myriad cooking options, this four-piece set is sturdily made of 18/10 stainless steel. Key to the set's versatility is an 8-quart pot with an aluminum disk in its bottom to conduct heat quickly and uniformly. With or without its tempered-glass lid, the pot can be used for simmering soup or stock and for cooking beef stew or pasta sauce. Two steamer inserts come along, a shallow one for steaming vegetables, fish fillets, or pieces of poultry and a deep one for cooking pasta or steaming lots of vegetables. The entire set is dishwasher-safe, and the aluminum disk in the pot's bottom is fully enclosed in stainless steel for a uniform look and easy cleanup. The inserts are highly polished, while the pot has a contemporary brushed-steel exterior with a mirror-finish band under the rim. The set carries a 10-year warranty against defects. –Fred Brack

    I have used an old, fully stainless, calphalon pan for years. It has been my go to cooking tool. However, felt I could use a couple more fully stainless (no non-stick) in my rotation, so I thought I’d try out new Calphalon. I noticed right away that the similarly sized pan doesn’t have the density/heft that the old one did. I was pleasantly surprised with the performance though. It is not quite as good I think due to the thinner material of the pan. I don’t think it will hold up as well over years of use as the old one, but I believe the old one will never wear out. For good quality pans that I still believe will last for at least a decade or two, and without nasty chemical non-stick I am happy I made this purchase. I use the larger pan almost every day and it has helped having extra pans to work with. For the most part the handle doesn’t heat up much at all. I have not had to use “bar keeper’s friend” to clean it which is great. I don’t want to have to buy a special product to wash my pots/pans. Most of the time I just leave it to soak in some dish soap and it cleans up. Only once I had to use steel wool, but it cleaned up a scorch with a little elbow grease. I would also advise that you perhaps temper the steel the first time using it. All I did was heat it up gradually, working my way slowly up to high heat. Don’t know if you have to do this, but I see it as akin to breaking in new shoes. I would be willing to pay more for the old quality = note to Calphalon. Yet so far I am happy with the function of these pans, and feel they were a great product for the price.

    I chose these pans for two lifestyle changes. 1. glass cooktop with radiant head burners, and 2. nutritional – moving away from coated cookware and highly refined fry oils. These pans have a heavy layer of aluminum on the bottom to keep the pans (hopefully) perfectly flat on the glass burners. These pans are not non-stick. Your best results will come with learning to cook “low and slow.” also, use a lid, remove food from heat during last minute of cooking, and resting for a few minutes will restore moisture between the food and pan which can help.

    I am very impressed with the look and feel of this wok, its very light weight, easy to lift even when full of my favorite curry. The pouring lip makes it easy to pour straight from the pan instead of using a ladle. All stainless steel pans i have purchased even the All Clad, stain, but using Bar Keepers Friend (available here on Amazon) is a great help in preserving the new look. One suggestion in stopping discoloration is not to get the pan too hot.The one criticism i have is that because these pans are stamped out and die cut , the edges are a little sharp. It looks and feels like they have tried to soften them but just not enough. With the pan i received it would be difficult to actually cut yourself but a pan with less softening of the edge would be extremely sharp. A little more work is needed on the in this area to make this pan 100% IMHO.
