Rated 2 out of 5Â by ksudz Not Long Lasting
This was a great pan for the first few times I used it. I loved it and use it for pretty much every thing I need to cook. I've followed all the guidelines and I always handwash as I don't have a dishwasher. Unfortunately the pan has now started to get burn marks on the bottom and it now has a copper looking ring around the inside of the pan. It no longer really gets clean, as it always has this residue and it's unfortunate that a calphalon product would reduce to this so quickly. I have had the pan for a little over a month. It's also strange that the pan got these marks when I closely watched the food and it never burnt.

My order arrived quicky and was well packaged. I have 2 other Calphalon pans that are nonstick which I have used quite a lot, so I was comfortable with purchasing it online sight unseen. My only disappointment when I received this pan was that the craftsmanship is not as good with some scratches and surface imperfections left in the pan. Since it works very well with heat distribution, and food doesn't seem to stick, I can easily live with the minor flaws. The glass lid is great to keep an eye on the food as it cooks. It's definitely a good value for the price and I look forward to many stir fry meals made in it.

This pan is the best I've ever used. Thirty years ago my husband purchased a teflon Rival electric Wok. I used that one up. I loved it. The heating element was so even and nothing ever stuck. I replaced that with a Rival Stainless Steel 14" electric Wok. I had trouble from the first time I used it with food sticking and burning. The heating element was not consistent. I finally decided I would buy a Calphalon pan (stove top) to match my Tri-Ply Stainless Steel set. It's the best addition to my kitchen. Thank you for a great product.

After 1st stir fry use, this wok cannot be cleaned. I have soaked in hot sudsy water and even used brillo pad which improves it, but lots of burned in grease.
