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 saucepan is ideal for simmering sauces, blanching vegetables, cooking grains and cereals.

  • Premium hard-anodized aluminum ensures excellent heat conduction and uniform cooking.
  • Triple-layer nonstick surface is durable enough to withstand metal whisks, spoons and spatulas.
  • Calphalon's proprietary textured Sear nonstick surface seals in flavor when browning or searing foods.
  • PFOA-free.
  • Polished stainless-steel handles are riveted.
  • Ergonomically shaped handles offer a secure grip and comfortable lifting.
  • Low-profile tempered-glass lid lets you view contents during cooking.
  • Dishwasher safe.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nonstick finish has come off after little use! I have purchased two saucepans and a chefs pan from this product line. Both saucepans have the finish flaking off after not that much use. I only use wood utensils on them. I would not waste my time sending back for replacements, as I am very unhappy with the quality.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nonstick finish is faulty I received this as a wedding gift less than 5 months ago, and we didn't start using it until a month after that. Bottom has finish scraped (see pictures) after not a ton of use. We never use metal utensils on it and hand wash it (even though it is supposed to be dishwasher and metal utensil safe per the description). In fact, I'm not even sure what caused this damage - I noticed it when I pulled it out to use a few days ago. I am submitting to Calphalon for warranty replacement (for which I will have to pay shipping (~$15-20)) and crossing my fingers they recognize that this is not the quality for which their brand stands. So disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pans I love everything about these Calphalon sauce pans. They are comfortable to handle, have great design, and are easy to clean. I especially love the clear lids for viewing what is cooking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Go Wrong This cookware is superior to any other cookware I've had...and I'm 70 years old, so I have experience with many different brands. My daughter-in-law introduced me to this cookware and I'm just delighted with it. Nice when the mother-in-law takes advice from her daughter-in-law! Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As great as the first one! My son gave me an earlier version of this pot many years ago. It is the most used pot in my kitchen - it finds its way to the stove almost every meal. I finally had to replace it. The new version is taller with a slightly different shape but still the same quality and functionality. I love it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performance but finish is questionable.... Purchased the 1.5 and 2.5 about a year ago and performance is fantastic, quick even heat and a breeze to clean. Interior is holding up well so far. However, the exterior finish of the pans scratches easily and bottoms slide around way too easily on iron grates, which drives me crazy. Would easily recommend if you can handle the exterior.....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cookware I've purchased other Calphalon Elite cookware and think it is great. It does scratch but to date only surface scratches you see in the light. I've had some of the pieces over 3 years and we cook at home almost exclusively so the pans/skillets get a lot of use. Very nice and easy to clean - I do not place pans in dishwasher even though safe to do so - I do wash the glass lids in dishwasher.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Poor quality item which was included in a set. The interior of the handle rattles and the interior and exterior are scratched badly (using wood utensils). I'm using this pot maybe once or twice per month. It is about 18 months from the date of purchase and about 12 months of actual use.
