Rated 5 out of 5Â by CFlott Browned Chicken in a Non-Stick Pan?
I've used my Calphalon Unison Nonstick 3 Qt. Saute Pan two times now...and keep looking for reasons to use it! My one complaint about non-stick pans is that I never get a good brown on meats. So when I used the saute pan to brown some chicken filets for a new recipe recently, I was quite pleased with the results. Nicely browned chicken with great flavor!
I also appreciate the complete information that came with the pan on how to take care of it and ensure its longevity.
I do look forward to using this pan more and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new non-stick saute pan!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by mar4JC Heavy Duty and Versatile
This deep pan is great for sauteing meats, but is also wonderful for sauce based dishes and steaming greens as well. I have left things on the stove for longer than intended and the pan cooked things evenly without burning. Clean up is a cinch as well and even stuck on spaghetti with sauce and chicken came off easily.
The lid also fits my other Calphalon pan, even though it is a more economical model. The glass lid allows me to watch what's cooking without lifting the lid prematurely and keeps spatters under control. The pan and the lid are heavy and work well. Overall, I am very happy with this product.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by lavanloon So THIS is what nonstick means
So far, I've made two dishes using the Unison Nonstick 3 qt. Saute Pan. First, I made homemade meat sauce for pasta. It was the perfect size to fit sauce for my family of four.
Next, I made steaks. First, I applied a spice rub and seared the steaks in the pan on the stove. I then moved the pan into the oven until the steaks were done.
In both instances, I found the pan to be excellent at browning/searing the meat without any major sticking.
Cleanup was easy, too -- just scrape off any bits with a nylon scraper and pop the pan into the dishwasher.
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
