Rated 5 out of 5Â by GrandmafromTX Favorite pan
My sister gave me a 10" version of the Calphalon everyday pan, I loved it, and wore it out. So, I bought this 12" version. The sides are a little less sloping--not so wok-like. I like not having a long handle to cope with, and it seems a little less heavy than the other, even though it is larger. I'm hoping that the non-stick surface will last longer than 7-8 years, about as long as the other lasted. Love the style most of all.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ACDClark Best pan ever
I've had this pan for a year now and use it at least a couple times a week for everything from scrambled eggs to quesadillas to shrimp and grits.The nonstick is still pristine. I take good care of it - no metal spatulas, no stacking other pots inside it, hand washing with a soft sponge - but it's easy to clean, and I'm very impressed with its durability. The function is top-notch - from frying eggs to searing beef, nothing sticks but everything cooks nicely and stays where you put it in the pan. The lid for this pan also fits just inside the rim of the anodized aluminum wok, so it's even more useful than I expected.

I have a 10 in everyday pan and a 12 in chef's skillet and it seems to be up to the level of performance I've come to expect of calphalon products. My only gripe is that it is not the same heavy duty quality as the other 2 pans. I got the 12 in everyday pan cause the 10 in just wasn't large enough for my cooking needs and the 12 in chefs skillet handle is so long it doesn't fit into my oven. I noticed in writing this that the 12 in skillet is a One Nonstick and the 12 in everyday is a Comtemporary. Not sure what the 10 in everyday is, I suspect a One Nonstick also. So be warned to look closely at which line you get so you won't be disappointed. All in all I do believe I'll be getting years of cooking pleasure out of this. Thanks, John

We purchased our first set of Calphalon Contemporary as a wedding present for ourselves (second marriage, small wedding, didn't ask for expensive gifts). Neither my husband or I had ever realized what an incredible difference having high-quality cookware and knives makes in our enjoyment of cooking. Our only disappointment was that the set didn't come with what I am used to calling a Dutch oven (that could go from stove to oven). This pan works perfectly for those recipes where you start by browning and then bake the remainder.
