  • Rated 2 out of 5 by from Scratch easily My wife and I received this set as a wedding gift 2 and a half years ago. We've been extremely careful with them and using them like the directions state, but have STILL had numerous scratches where we've stirred, and the coating is gone. We're incredibly disappointed with the quality of this set, as it was expensive!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad products waste money, cost was too much and the products are good at all. I'm very angry despite following directions. Recommend this product? no.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it at first, but doesn't last My husband and I bought this set after hearing great things about this brand regarding quality. It was definitely a splurge purchase for us, but considering that we cook at home often we thought it would be worth it long term. At first, I absolutely loved this set! I even sang it's praises to my mother in law who went out and bought herself a couple of individual pieces as well (she has also run into the same issue with the pieces she bought!). However after about 6 months of use, the pans started to stick and develop scratches. We have never used metal utensils (don't own any) and always handwash the pans, but they've become slightly warped and discolored now that it has been about 2 years. I'm very disappointed in this set. The pots (and to a lesser degree the Dutch oven) seem to be holding up ok but that is most likely because they don't get used as often. The pans are a major problem, and I'm currently looking to replace them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing quality I've had this set for two and a half years and despite caring for the set according to Calphalon's directions, the surfaces have developed deep scratches on the nonstick surface. I didn't use metal utensils, didn't stack the pans, and used the recommended dishwasher detergent and still ended up with scratches. I am not sure how much longer these will hold up, and I am concerned about using them with the scratches on the nonstick surface.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance, Easy cleanup I just bought the 12 piece set after using the frying pan set for 6 months. Great even cooking, oven safe, and nothing sticks to them. 90% of the time I just rinse them and throw them in the dishwasher. They show no signs of wear after 6 months of heavy use.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened to Calphalon quality? We are definitely not happy with this cookware set. We expected a lot more from Calphalon, having bought their pans for years. The quality has gone way down....I guess to compete with the cheaper market. With little over a year's use, most of the pans are really scratched, all the way through the cooking finish....and that's with only plastic or wood utensils and very careful use by only my wife and me. Also, the fry pans have warped, and that's the real sign of the diminished quality of Calphalon. None of my older Calphalon fry pans have even thought about warping. The level of quality that made Calphalon worth buying, is gone. You may as well buy cheap pots and pans. Don't think that you're getting a good deal on Calphalons like I're just paying more than you should for cheaply made cookware.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Non Stick is Sticking We received this set for our wedding. It says that they are dishwasher safe, but we did not trust it so we have only handwashed. Food is already sticking in our 12" fry pan.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Continuously Disappointing Cookware We unfortunately continue to have negative experiences with some of our Calphalon cookware. We especially enjoyed using the contemporary nonstick fry pans; however, after using them for a few months, the 12” fry pan is now slightly warped and no longer nonstick. This is not our first negative Calphalon cookware experience…
