Of course, we are talking about an upper-ranged cookware. There are simply a lot of amazing things about it, we don’t know where to start so we will go with what are the obvious things you get by purchasing this set. Afterwards, dive in deeper and see why this set tops our list of best cookware sets.

Overview of the set
One of the best things this set has is an anodized aluminum construction. For you, this means that you get even heating and great conductivity. On the other hand, the interior has a coating which is double coated and it is non-stick. If you still don’t know if this set would be a good choice, perhaps the type of cooktop you have will help you make a decision. Namely, you can use it on a halogen, gas, ceramic or electric cooktop.
Also, when it comes to cooking with it, it is safe to use it in the oven up to 400 Fahrenheit, however, we wouldn’t recommend using it in a dishwasher because it is not dishwasher safe. Also, there are lids made of tempered glass. The lids for the pots can also easily fit the omelet pans too.
The handles are contoured made of silicone and stainless steel and they are double riveted to the body of the pieces. This means that the handles are there to stay and not fail you when you need them. Also, they have holes at the end and you can hang them wherever you like too.
Benefits of having the Calphalon
We all know that there can be a lot of struggles in the kitchen when you are cooking with bad cookware. For this reason, getting some high-quality pans and pots would be a great choice. However, the Calphalon exceeds other types of cookware for so many reasons. One of those reasons is the fact that your food will not stick on the pots and the pans. They have a nonstick coating wish works perfectly and prevents food from getting stuck on the surface. Additionally, it is super-easy to clean them, all you need to have is a basic dishwashing liquid and a basic sponge too.
Also, the handles are insulated. This means that they stay cool to the touch when you are cooking. However, if you put them in the oven or if you leave them on the stove top for a significant amount of time, they might get hot, logically.
If you weight the whole set, you would get the result that they all weigh around 20 pounds, but since there are 10 pieces in it, the weight is just perfect. Anyone would be comfortable when they cooking and using them, as well as hand-cleaning them. If they are a bit lighter, they would be flimsy and without the high-quality they have. On the other hand, if they were heavier, cooking or washing them would be very difficult.
Things you should have into consideration
One of the few things that you must know about this set is the fact that it isn’t dishwasher-safe. This means that you shouldn’t place any part of it in a dishwasher. However, washing and cleaning them by hand is fairly easy because it has a non-stick surface which is very helpful here.
Compared to other sets you can see on the market, this one is a bit pricier. However, if we take into consideration that this set is made to last, it speaks for the price. It is highly economical and durable which is why you can surely rely on it. One thing is sure, you won’t have the need to replace it, at least not in the foreseeable future.
It is not recommended to use cooking sprays, oils or butter with this set because it can damage them and they won’t last as long as they should.
Moreover, when you are organizing your kitchen, it is also recommended to use a paper towel. This goes especially if you want to put one inside another. Not doing this might result in scratches on your beloved cookware. Also, there is a Use and Care guideline which comes with them, so it would be a good thing to read it. If you carefully go through it, you will make sure that you won’t use them in any way which can result in damage or scratches too.
One of the things we previously mentioned in our Caphalon review that we must do again is the fact that this set is one of the best non-stick cookware you can find on the market. The surface is made of hard-anodized medium gauge-aluminum. Additionally, the handles are stainless-steel riveted with an easy-to-grip silicone over it. Additionally, the finish is brushed in a gray color with black bottoms.
As we mentioned, you get a 10-piece set and the omelet pans of 8 and 10 inches are without lids. But you can use the ones from the pots. The lids are made from tempered glass and they also have easy-grip handles on top of them which means that you will be able to maneuver with them without getting burned, they simply don’t get hot to touch. However, one of the bad sides of the lids is their lack of venting holes on top of them.
Since the first moment you put either piece on the stove, you will also see that they can easily sit on it. The flat bottom sits there perfectly which also ensures even heating.
Once you get this set, you will also get the impression that this is one of the best purchases you’ve ever made. Frankly, you won’t be wrong. It is non-stick and you can easily enjoy your cooking with it. It is highly reliable, durable and most of all, super-safe to use. Getting a high-quality set like this one will make sure that you enjoy your cooking even more. It saves you a lot of time, especially when it comes to cleaning. Also, your food will be a lot tastier because of the high-quality materials it is made of. After reading our Caphalon review, we hope that you will make a smart decision and get it. It is a great product from an excellent manufacturer.
