Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chill First time calphalon purchase
As stated this is the first time I've ever bought calphalon as cookware. Just always seemed out of my price range at the time. Well for my birthday my room mate bought this set for me. He was tired of scrubbing out the old copper bottom stainless steel set that I had and cooked with regularly for years. So with us moving we decided to get this set, and we could not have been happier. I use less oil and no butter now when I cook and everything seems to taste better, let alone the presentation of the food I make is so much better. He couldn't be happier about the fact it only takes minutes to clean instead of hours of soaking.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by NedB Great Cookware, but...
This is actually great cookware, as stated in the review title, but after using it for a while, and obviously our fault for not being more careful, three of the eight pieces have become scratched and when used, release little pieces of black particulate (non-stick material). One of the sauce pans is totally unusable and the other one is close to being unusable. The stock pot is also getting close to being unusable. So it's time to replace the set with a new one (yes, Calphalon Contemporary Non-Stick).

I brought this a few weeks ago, haven't use it but can't wait.

I've had these pans for 7 years, and the 2 frying pans started to flake after 1 year. They mark-up easily, even when using the proper utensils. They seem to be very well made, other than this. I've since bought another frying pan for much cheaper that has upheld better. I just don't think they're worth the money. You can get just as good of a non-stick set for much less.
