Reliable cookware is always a clever investment and the Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 12 piece Set
gives you top of the range pots and pans you can use for years. This non-stick range lets you fry, boil, steam and simmer great meals every day with ultimate style and convenience.
Every item in the Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set is non-stick for easy, clean cooking. Interior of cookware thoroughly coated to provide an evenly heated cooking surface. Handles are brushed with stainless steel that remains cool regardless of the cooking temperature. This makes the cookware safe to handle and move them around comfortably.
The exterior is made of tough aluminum and glass lids have rims that are highly resistant to food stains. All cookware is safe to use in your oven below 450 degrees and can be washed by hand.
Cooking does not require any oil and the best utensils to use are wooden, coated or nylon.
Non-stick is convenient because there is no food to scrape up off the cooking surface during or after cooking. Even with no oil at all, food releases effortlessly. This is beneficial for sauces and other foods that tend to burn easily.
Non-stick design also helps when you need to reuse pots or pans. Because they clean so easily, you can hand wash cookware quickly and use it immediately to cook something else.
Stainless steel handles feel pleasantly cool and never heat up no matter how hot the food inside the cookware is. You can move it between plates with little effort and dish up without having to hold the handle with a kitchen cloth or gloves.
Pot rims can be irritating to clean but the Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set rims repel stains to save you time cleaning up. They are also clear to let you watch food closely as it cooks.
The non-stick nature of the cookware means it is not compatible with metal utensils. Using metal spoons, forks and spatulas can easily damage the coat. Another flaw is that these pots and pans are not safe to wash in the dishwasher. A few washes in the machine can cause irreparable damage to the interior and cause food to start sticking to the surface.
Another recurring complaint is that they tend to age faster than expected. The exterior stays intact but scratches appear on the interior surface. Other users find unsightly stains that are irremovable.
Should you buy it?
Non-stick coating on the Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 12-Piece Cookware Set’s pots and pans is enough to win anyone over. It makes cookware very easy to clean.

Having 12 pieces of cookware to work with means you will have the pot or pan that is appropriate for whatever you feel like cooking that day. Apart from its questionable durability, this is great, modern set to have.
