  • Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful to look at but terrible to cook on the 13 piece set is absolutely beautiful but it’s a disaster when you want to use it. Everything sticks and stains. I cooked hamburgers on one of the pans and spend over 30 minutes scrubbing it afterwards and some of the stains wont come out. Save yourself the trouble and buy non stick cookware.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful pans... with a CATCH! My wife and I just recently purchased the Calphalon Contemporary Stainless 13 pic cookware set. The set is beautiful and eye catching. However, when cooking with the pans no matter how low you set your burner to the pans, food will stick. (We attempted to cook eggs on a setting of 3 and still had broken and eggs sticking to the pan). We do not recommend going with this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I bought the contemporary set last month. I'm overall happy with the size and appearance of the set but for the quality, I'd expected a better result. I have used the 3 pans so far and when you cook even on a medium flame it tends to stick which was least expected this being heavy bottom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing I bought this during Black Friday sale and must say it is an amazing set. I use it for cooking everyday and it cleans well. Would have preferred more items with two handles instead of one long handle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two years of use and could not be happier! Fantastic pots and pans. Period. I have worked in the restaurant industry for nearly ten years and unsurprisingly your tools in the kitchen are like anything else in life: buy quality and take good care of it. My set still looks like the day I bought it - just buy a can of Bar Keepers Friends and periodically shine the set. A few others are treating the fact that these pans have some stick to them as a “bad” thing but that’s how stainless steal is designed and I actually prefer the taste of the food on these much more. The non-stick pans we would use would always break down faster and food comes out bland. You will not go wrong with this set.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from pretty much a waste pretty disappointed Calphalon is a great brand and buying these for its hefty price I thought I would be getting great cooking experience..I was wrong. My husband bought these for me to replace my old mismatched pots..sad to know I have only used them a few times [specially the pans] I had to go back to my old pans I had previously. The design is great and no doubt they will last you a lifetime, they're heavy[ if you have arthritis this is not the best foe you] and they require a lot of cleaning. Yes it's natural for meats to stick to pan [specially with stainless steel] you must wait until meat sides have cooked all the way then it will eventually unstick itself, however some parts remain sticking, leaving you with stuff that's tough to wash or scrub out. Soaking works good but stains are hard to come off. I don't have time to waste soaking or scrubbing or buying cleansers for it. I wanted to love this set but not a great experience...perhaps I'll try for their other pots or maybe another brand altogether.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality is terrible My husband bought this set for me for Christmas to replace our 18-yr old Calphalon set that was still in decent shape. These are so bad, everything sticks to them no matter how you cook. Then you cannot get the stuff off no mater how hard you scrub! Not sure what's up with them but they need to fix this! The older ones were much better and unfortunately I gave them away once I got the new ones :(
