To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This product has some great reviews which is why I bought it and had such high expectations.
I mainly use cast iron but wanted this for frying eggs which I do at least once a week. It was fine for a few weeks and suddenly eggs started sticking to it. It's not terrible, but considering the price and the care I put into this, I was really expecting a lot more.
Plus, it doesn't sit perfectly flat on my glass stove top, so it spins if you bump it at all like there's a small point directly in the middle.
I'm still using it making sure to keep the heat very low to prevent sticking.
There is another pair of Teflon frying pans on Amazon that I plan on purchasing in the near future because of the lackluster performance of this one. Hopefully they'll turn out better than this one.
Estuve esperando con mucha emoción estos sartenes y no sé si me puedan enviar otros iguales o qué procede porque realmente quiero el producto al precio que pagué, pero en este caso el sartén grande viene deforme y rayado.
ok, this skillet looks wonderful, if you're going to go with hard anodized skillets. However, I have been totally unable to even use mine! I've washed it by hand in warm, soapy water 4 <FOUR!> times already, once even with a nylon scrubbie sponge, and still, I'm getting black stuff on the towel I dry the pan with. I can only assume this black stuff is going to leech into the food I cook in this pan so, as of right now, I've not used it. Is there anyone else who has experienced the same?? I would like the manufacturer to help me out here. Just what is this black stuff??? I've attached a photo of what is coming off the pan on a dish towel. It reflects what I see on the towel when I rub the pan dry with my three fingers. UPDATE: I contacted Calphalon directly and I must say they were more than helpful and did send me a replacement pan. Unfortunately, my review must remain the same, as I experienced the exact same problem with the new pan. That's enough for me. I don't have time/energy to deal with this further, so I am out not only the pan, which I really needed, but I'm out the original cost as well. Does anyone know if these pans would be recyclable? not sure how to dispose of the one I have. And one more thing... the "black stuff" remains unidentified. Calphalon was unable to identify it either and said it was perhaps something from my dishwasher, but I've never put this pan in the dishwasher, ever. <shrugs>
First, many of the reviews of this pan seem to be for a set or other products. I would prefer reviews that are SPECIFIC to the item listed for sale.
I have used and loved Calphalon for over 20 years. I should have known that the price point of this pan was too low for a high quality Calphalon pan. I don't know if this is a lower quality line or the pan is defective or what. This pan does not heat evenly. Cooking bacon gives me one half burned and one half barely cooked. I must babysit everything I cook constantly and move the food around in the pan to keep it from burning. Clean up is easy so that is nice. That is why I gave it 2 stars instead of one. I NEVER put any cookware in the dishwasher so I can't speak to how it holds up there. I am very disappointed with this pan. it has damaged my confidence in Calphalon and my trust in that brand.
This Dutch Oven has a huge flaw - when the lid is on, it is not completely closed! The design of the spouts and the lid is such that there is a gap between the lid and the side of the pot at both the spouts. So there is no such thing as 'cover tightly and simmer' - this pot won't do that!
I suppose it is good for pasta, but a Dutch Oven it is not. I am so disappointed with it, and am returning it.
It was accidentally ran through the dishwasher ONCE (a week after buying it) and the entire outside finish came off. Now anything that touches it turns black. I suspect there is a problem with the outside finish in general, looking at other reviews...the dishwasher just speeds it along.
The size of this pan is perfect, plenty of surface area, and the nonstick is easy to clean, but after a month or so of use, the bottom warped, and it will no longer sit flat on my ceramic stovetop. I never put it in the dishwasher or the oven. This happened with regular use. I am attempting to get a replacement per the warranty. We’ll see how that goes.
I wanted to like this. The non stick coating works great. It feels like a really well built pan. The handles are great, the lid is great. The problem? First use, it warps. I went no higher than medium heat on my stove. It warps so bad it spins like a top. Literally the weight of the spoon causes to to spin. Forget trying to stir without holding the handle. I figured I just got a bad one, so I got a replacement from Amazon. Same thing happened on the second. I'd return it for a refund, but I used a coupon that is no longer valid, so I'll just have to deal with it. I would not recommend this at all.
It looks right. At first weight feels okay in one's hand. But this pan set is beyond disappointing. Especially from Calphalon which usually offers high quality pieces. Handle is substantial but conducts heat too much. The pan is too thin, heating too high too fast, and nearly impossible to use for any cooking reliably on gas range; maybe okay for electric (but I doubt it). The handle gets scorching hot, burning one's hand. Don't buy this pan set. I can't use these. I should have looked at material density in specs. There are plenty of excellent, affordable pans and pan sets for a few dollars more that you'll use happily for years.
This is my third or fourth purchase of this type of frypan from Calphalon. I have always liked using them for frying delicate items like eggs, and the non-stick coating lasts for 18 months or more. They are not expensive, so I would just buy a new one when the old one got scratched and dulled. But this time around I discovered that the pan is now markedly thinner. When I set it on my glass cooktop, I noticed that the bottom was slightly convex, and as the pan heated up this became worse until it was only contacting the surface over the inner most 3-4". Pretty disappointing, and not very useful as a pan either. It's too late to return it, and I am now shopping for a different brand of better quality.
