Rated 4 out of 5Â by mjm8700 Great for grilled cheese
This pan is very heavy, which is great for cooking but a bit hard on my wrists. I have used this pan to make grilled cheese on both regular bread, and on rolls. It works great! Heat is evenly distributed for even browning. I put the lid on while the bread is browning, and the chease is melted by the time both sides are golden brown. No need to flip constantly! I also made stirfry rice, which turned out well, though the egg did stick a bit to the bottom, it came off easily when washed.
My only complaint is the handle on the lid gets very hot. I am used to pots and pans with stay-cool lid handles, and wish they had included that feature

AWESOME! That is the best description for this product. I used this pan to fry cubed steaks and make gravy for the mashed potatoes I also made in it. I love having that second handle to help me move it when full of food, without straining my wrist.
My daughter made fried okra in it the next night. We were both amazed at how little grease splatter we had when frying! It was as close to non-splatter as I think you could get while southern frying okra.
LOVE the non-stick and deep sides. The clear lid fits well and is nice and heavy too. Clean up was literally a breeze! SO EASY!!
This was my first experience with Calphalon and I must say I'm in love with it!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by justkimberly super easy clean up fru fru 1 pot dinner!!
When I first looked at this pan, Ithought that it wouldn't be big enough for a family meal, but it surprisingly made a nice one pot meal. I didn't need to clean up multiple pans. I was really surprised at how nicely I was able to brown chicken in it too! I made a deliciously Lemon curry chicken that I browned on the stove top and finished it in the oven at 375 degrees. It turned out moist and fall off the bone while retaining the color of the vegetables. I like that the pan is so easy to clean too. The design also complements my modern kitchen.
My only con- the sides of the pan are high enough, but I still had splattering when I browned my chicken.

Quality is there but the nonstick surface needs to be looked at very closely.
