Rated 3 out of 5Â by BPRR Very Disappointed for this Price
Initially I was debating between simply calphalon and this set but finalized this one because the pots are big enough, Dishwasher safe and PFOA/PTFE free.
Though I used wooden spoons after few months the Non Stick Coating started to come off.
Pots are too heavy for hand wash
Food looses its moisture very fast and goes dry and tasteless.
Lids do not have steam vents.
Good size of stockpot and Sauce pans
Omelette pans are very good for frying
PFOA and PTFE free
Bought Simply Calphalon 1 piece to see how it works. So far it is good for my cooking. It is very light weight and easy to hand wash.

This is the 4th set of Calphalon that I have purchased and I am thrilled that it is now dishwasher safe.
I bought a set right after Kohl's started carrying them and loved them so much that I purchased 2 more sets for my sisters for Christmas. If I had to stack them for storage, I always placed drawer liners between the layers so the one on the bottom would not get scratched. I still intend to do that.
I highly recommend this product - it heats evenly and cleanup is a breeze.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RagtimeJoe An utterly peerless set of cooking tools!
I was introduced to the Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick line a few years ago when I bought the stockpot at an estate sale. I found it actually heated faster, was built stronger, and "handled" better than anything I'd ever used before. I've added every single pot, pan, and griddle in the Contemporary Nonstick line, and even built a custom ceiling rack to display it. I consider my Calphalon collection the "right tools for the job" in my kitchen, with their professional looks and superior performance. I often even wear my Calphalon apron (a handsome gift from my daughter)!
