I have a 5 year old Calphalon Signature Everyday Chef Pan . It came as a free bonus when you bought a Calphalon Signature cookware set from Macy's. I saw this on Amazon and thought I would buy one for my daughter. I could tell right away when I picked up the box it was a lot lighter, I opened the box and I compared it to my pan, and sure enough the thickness of the pan was definitely thinner. I might of been able to live with that, but when I put the cover on, it fit real loose. After further investigation I found the part number on the cover for the old pan and the cover for the new pan are the same. So they redesigned the pan thinner but are still using the old cover, that's why it fits sloppy. Poor cost cutting BS. I don't know if this pan was made specifically for Amazon but my old pan from Macy's is way better quality. Sent it back. Won't buy anymore Calphalon products.
I have a lot and i mean a lot of Calphalon pots and pans and handles never get hot. Calphalon is a great brand and superior product but this Signature series is not quite up to snuff. By the brand but other makes they are just great and mine have lasted i buy non stick surface and wash in dishwasher and no problems. They make a cheap series also those are just a normal product.
This Calphalon range of pans is great - but this small one has a major design flaw. They used the same standard handle as on the larger pans, and as a result the handle is much heavier than the pan itself. On a flat countertop the pan it is very tippy (even with something in the pan), on a gas range it is downright dangerous. Returning it for a bigger pan.
Light duty compared to exsisting Calphalon. Sides are rounded making it useless for things like bacon. My old stuff is heavy this is thin and light. For$189 I’d expect better quality. After looking I can replace my current pan with with a perfect copy for $89.
