Calphalon Contemporary 2 Piece Non-Stick Skillet Set Review

Calphalon 2-pc. Nonstick Contemporary Nonstick Skillet Set

Calphalon are the home cooks best friend. After all their mission is to "...enhance the home chefs' food experience...". With this in mind we decided to review the Calphalon Contemporary non stick omelette and skillet pan set to see how well they meet the needs of a home cook.

What We Like

This set features a 10 inch skillet pan and a 12 inch omelette pan - pretty much all you need for your searing and frying needs.


The 12 inch pan is promoted as an omelette pan although you wouldn't want to limit yourself to just cooking omelettes in this one.


The features that make it perfect as an omelette pan are the wide bottom and sloping sides, plus it is also non-stick. So your omelette simply slides out nicely onto your serving plate.


The 10 inch skillet pan works just as well in the non-stick department. The smaller size is great for frying onions, searing a couple of steaks or stir frying up some vegetables.


These pans are made from hard anodized aluminum. Aluminum on its own is quite a soft metal and can dent and scratch easily. The oxidation process places another layer on the aluminum making it stronger and a lot more durable.

The benefit of aluminum is that heat is distributed evenly which means in turn that your foods are cooked more evenly. Aluminum  minimizes the problems of hot spots on the cooking surface where foods are partially cooked in some areas but overcooked in others.

The cool touch handle is a winner for us. We love cookware with stainless steel handles and the fact that they stay cool is a must. The arched handles also make them comfortable to hold and handle.

Being oven safe is another big plus. Being able to cook on the stove top and then take the meal straight to the oven without transferring the contents to another pan makes life a whole lot easier.

What We Don't Like

This set is not dishwasher safe but the fact that this is a non-stick pan means that hand washing the pans is not a chore.
