Rated 4 out of 5 by sirenred from Good, but handles heat up Yes, this does have an excellent, non-stick surface for cooking. Cleans up easily too. However, one reason I purchased this pan was the extra small handle oppose the large handle, as these secondary handles really assist when cooking. Unfortunately, both handles get extremely hot and the pan cannot be moved easily from burner to burner, or the sink, without gloves.Date published: 2017-09-20Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama Kin from Love this pan! I hesitate to buy a kitchen pan this expensive but it was on sale and I was badly in need of a quality frying pan. I wish I had bought it years ago! This pan is heavy but I like that as it sits very evenly on the cooktop. No tilting or uneven frying. It holds a substantial amount of food as well. Clean up is a breeze. You can just wipe residue off with a paper towel. I have chosen to hand wash mine rather than use the dishwasher. The box it arrives in is huge which made me think the wrong item had been shipped. No worries, it's just packed very well. I plan to buy a smaller sautéing pan in the near future. I ordered one for my mom as well.Date published: 2017-07-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Esther from Best Fry pan ever! I was a little scared to buy yet another nonstick pan to try to see if it really is a nonstick. But when I first used it OMG it's a new world. I have used for 3months so far and nothing can make me and my husband happier. It's so easy to use and clean. Only thing is that when it got delivered, the box was gigantic that UPS lady was concerned for me. haha! but it was not heavy so it was fine. It was well packaged and well deserved.Date published: 2017-05-30Rated 5 out of 5 by LDMT from Great pan! Only one concern I bought this in Sept and just decided to use it tonight. I love the pan and the lid but I keep hearing a popping sound from the lid as it heat up and the condensation developed. I'm a little concerned it will shatter. I have other Calphalon glass tops and have never heard this begore without an unhappy ending. I'll be contacting WS and Calphalon about this soon.Date published: 2017-02-19Rated 5 out of 5 by EileenL from LOVE this Pan!!! Was shipped to me a couple of weeks ago and have used it several times. Very good quality and cleans up so easy. I made a couple of chicken dishes, sauteed vegetables, and really am very satisfied with my purchase. Did my research first. Glad I picked this one.Date published: 2017-01-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Bevann58 from The perfect covered skillet! I was looking for a quality 12-inch covered skillet but did not want to spend a fortune. When Williams Sonoma had their holiday sale going on, I jumped at the chance and am so glad I did. The skillet is very well made and the cover is very high quality also. Best purchase I have made in a while!Date published: 2017-01-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Nina33 from Just bought a 2nd pan! This is the best non-stick pan I've ever bought! I cook for my family of 5 everyday and this 12" is by far my go-to pan (I also have the 8" and 10"). I love the big cooking surface in addition to the true non-stick & hardy-ness of it, and the see-through glass lid is absolutely wonderful! I've been using it pretty much everyday for the last 11 months and it still looks great! As a matter of fact I love it so much that I just ordered my 2nd 12" pan (with the lid) so that I can cook on 2 pans at the same time (I often cook something in it, then wash it off, then use it for another dish!).Date published: 2016-12-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Pazzy from Best I have ever used The Calphalon Elite Nonstick line of cookware is the best non-stick cookware that I have ever used. I know many cooks prefer not to use non-stick, but I have always loved the convenience of non-stick. In the past every single non-stick pan that I used, regardless of brand, price or type, has not taken long to lose it's quality. This included Teflon (PTFE) as well as ceramic. I was also concerned about the impact of PTFE on health. With the Calphalon Elite Nonstick, you get the benefits of non-stick with the durability of traditional cookware (e.g. cast iron or stainless steel). I think if you want something that balances convenience with durability, then Calphalon Elite Nonstick is highly recommended. If price is an issue, buy it on sale.Date published: 2016-08-20
