Calphalon Elite Nonstick Soup Pot
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 soup pot is ideal for searing foods then simmering soups and stews.

Rated 2 out of 5 by IngJH from Misleading product description! We registered for this soup pot, and received it as a wedding gift. It is a great size, and works very well. However, the product description is very misleading. It says online "Metal utensils won’t damage the release performance of the durable, triple-layer nonstick interior." However, we used a metal stirring spoon on it one time and it scratched the bottom of the pot. Black flakes now come off and get in our food any time we use it. If the website advertised that only plastic utensils should be used on this product, I would have followed that direction. A very misleading product description.Date published: 2016-03-19Rated 5 out of 5 by mmd1 from Great all purpose pot Yes replaced an old Calphalon pot close to same size, use it for years but it got tired, is now a dog water bowl. New Pot is perfect, just right size, cooks and heats with ease. A very good replacement, great purchase.Date published: 2015-07-22Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnM from "Annies Black Pot" This pot will make a good cook even better. We have used this pot several times, it is easy to clean, just the right size, and worth every penny.Date published: 2015-04-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Scottyken1 from Love my Soup Pot I think this is one of calphalons better series of cookware the heat conductivity is great heats up very quickly. I love the fact that I can use metal utensils and the pot is easy to wash after a messy soup like cream of cauliflower with cheddar cheese. Easy th care for and I've used it in the dishwasher and came out looking brand new great decision in my part will definitely be buying more pieces. I highly recommend this item you won't be disappointed.Date published: 2015-01-24Rated 5 out of 5 by ScottishTerrierLover from A great soup pot At 4.5 quarts, this makes up a good hearty pot of soup, stew, beans, etc. I own two of them. It's a beautiful piece of Calphalon cookware as are all the pieces in this line. Not sure how long the interior surface will hold up but having gotten eight pieces all on sale, I'm extremely pleased. Clean up is a breeze with very little effort. I take extra care with my cookware and after hand washing and drying, I spray a fine mist of olive oil in it and lightly wipe before storing. Each piece is stored separately with its lid on - never nested with another.Date published: 2015-01-12Rated 5 out of 5 by MimiVee from Perfect pot Love this pot! Size is great, finish is so easy to clean, and I find I am using it often. A definite plus to my cookware collectionDate published: 2014-09-18Rated 5 out of 5 by BetsySD from Best all-around pot I love this pot. With 4.5 qt capacity, it is a great everyday pot that I use all the time. It is heavy, with a heavy glass lid that allows you to view the progress of cooking to ensure just the right simmering point. Cleanup is a breeze! Best of all, the handles don't get hot like my All Clad. Highly recommend.Date published: 2014-07-15Rated 5 out of 5 by irhj from great soup pot luv this line.easy to use.easy to clean.i have several pots and pans in this line.luv the clean up.Date published: 2014-07-02
