Rated 2 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Stained with first use
I'm trying to move away from non-stick coated pans so I had high hopes for this pan after reading reviews, but I was very disappointed after using it once. I made a grilled cheese sandwich in it, following instructions to preheat the pan (over med. heat) before putting butter in it.I lightly buttered the bread and cooked the sandwich, which burned within 2 minutes, even tho it was only heated over medium heat.Also, the pan developed brown stains over the bottom which wouldn't come off with soaking in hot ssoapy water for hours. I finally had to use bar keepers friend and a plastic scrubber to remove the stains.

I usually love Caphalon products but this pan discolored and turned a coppery color inside and out the first time I made eggs in it. May return for an exchange to the company since they do the lifetime warranty. I was surprised that this didn't hold up at all.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Garrison The cheese omelet pan
My wife and I own an 8" classic Farberware fry pan that is part of a set purchased when we got married in 1966. From apparent less than ideal use the bottom is slightly warped and my three special omelets a week always stick to the bottom of the pan. Excellent luck replacing a broken 10" Farberware fry pan in that same set with a Calphalon Tri-Ply 10" Fry Pan led me to purchase the Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 8" Omelette Pan - Sleeved. Farberware cookware is no longer all aluminum clad. I had no interest in an aluminum slug on the bottom of the fry pan. The Calphalon Tri-Ply piece is essentially my personal omelet pan every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It will be my omelet pan for my remaining days (I presume). It is quality at a reasonable price.

I love my new Caphalon stainless set, but after cooking in the 8" skillet for about a month, the eggs are sticking. Not slightly, but completely, making me think that I have inadvertently 'scotchbrighted' off some clear coating on my stainless finish.
I have not had such a severe sticking problem problem with the rest of the items in my set, but there is some hard scrubbing required even after boiling water- although I do have hard water.
