Calphalon Elite Nonstick Dutch Oven
Easy, hassle-free returns online and in-store for eligible items.Learn More
Developed through a unique collaboration between Calphalon and Williams Sonoma, the Elite cookware collection sets a new standard for nonstick performance. Metal utensils won’t damage the release performance of the durable, triple-layer nonstick interior, and the specially textured surface excels for searing foods—two key features that set this collection apart from other nonstick cookware. Made in the USA and exclusively ours, Elite cookware is also PFOA-free and dishwasher safe. This Dutch oven is ideal for searing foods followed by slow-simmering or braising on the stovetop or in the oven.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Meggies827 from Scratch resistant...yeah NO I am not a negative reviewer...ever. But as much as I want to give this 5 stars I just cannot. Size is fantastic and I love the weight of it. But it is NOT safe to use with metal or really anything that might scratch. I registered for this for my wedding and not even 4 months later it is totally scratched up. Yes it works but don't advertise it as safe to use with metal when its not. I rarely use metal so the fact its so scratched is just shocking to me. I returned the other Elite Non-stick that my guests got me because I don't need a whole set of pots that are going to get scratched. Pass up on this one, as much as it pains me to say this. It's just not worth it.Date published: 2019-07-15Rated 5 out of 5 by MargT from Best Dutch Oven I have owned Calphalon pots for years. The Dutch oven complements my set. So far I made a pot roast and a pork butt and they were amazing. The best of these pots is that nothing sticks!!Date published: 2016-05-23Rated 5 out of 5 by taycat from Wonderful Addition to My Cookware A truly non-stick, scratchproof and versatile pan. I've used it to brown meats, simmer stews and soups and to deep fry, all with great results. Cleans up easily.Date published: 2016-05-15Rated 5 out of 5 by toshi from Excellent Dutch Oven I love this dutch oven. I mainly use it to saute greens and make soups. I use this pan several times a week. It is the perfect size for me. Clean up is a breeze. It was well made with great design. I also loved the price.Date published: 2016-02-07Rated 3 out of 5 by Mahjonggqueen from Too hot to handle! While I do like this pan, I think the handles get way too hot! I've never used it in the oven yet, but I fear that, based on how hot the handles get on the stove, I won't be putting it in the oven. I replaced an old 5 qt. Calphalon Dutch oven with this one and the old one's handles never got his hot.Date published: 2016-01-28Rated 5 out of 5 by Prolific from Calphalon Elite Nonstick Dutch Oven I received my Calphalon Elite Nonstick Dutch Oven in 2 days. I have used dutch oven cookware for many years and this is by far the best dutch oven. I love the nonstick lining when I fry food and for making soups and stews.Date published: 2015-04-18Rated 5 out of 5 by CCRN47 from My Favorite New Pan I've had several Dutch Ovens over the years but this is by far my favorite. It's a great size, nice and deep and so easy to clean. Nothing sticks to the surface and if it does a little soaking and it is gone. I use this pan both in the oven and on top of the stove. As an added bonus it is lightweight so very easy to handle. Definitely worth the investment. I highly recommend this Dutch Oven.Date published: 2015-04-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Carina from An every day go to. I used this Dutch Oven the day it arrived and many times since. It is a perfect size for making sauces for a pasta to which the pasta can be added. In this was all the goodness of the sauces can be incorporated into the dish and can then be served in the Dutch Oven.Date published: 2015-04-13
