Calphalon 11 Piece Classic Ceramic Nonstick Cookware Set, Grey/White

The one and only Calphalon ceramic cookware set on my list which draws my attention for its compact design. Besides the design, the set also comes with essential frying pans, pots and lids so you don’t need to buy a separate one.

The body is constructed with heavy gauge aluminum which makes the set durable and stronger enough. To make the cooking surface nonstick, Calphalon use PTFE- and PFOA-free olive oil infused ceramic coating on each pot and pans of this set. They claimed that this coating is 3X better nonstick than traditional nonstick coating.

They are also claiming that you can cook food with zero oil/fat/butter using any pan of this set. However, in my experience, you must add at least a little amount of oil/butter to avoid food sticking problem as well as easy cleaning.

Calphalon cookware is safe to use, and can actually be safer because of its non-stick properties. That’s because it eliminates the need for cooking oils. It could be potentially harmful if you don’t pay attention to your selected oil’s smoke point.

Certain fats, like butter, and oils like extra virgin olive oil have lower smoke points, meaning they degrade at lower temperatures. Fats and oils with higher smoke points can withstand higher levels of heat without giving off smoke.

Calphalon’s items are all non-stick so you likely won’t even need to use any fats to coat their bottoms. That way, you don’t have to potentially endanger yourself by unwittingly using an oil with a lower smoke point.

The easiest way to understand how a company like Calphalon can create such diverse products is by visualizing them as a corporate version of Voltron.

When separated, each of their collections serves an intended purpose, but when combined, they form one of the most precise and reliable cookware manufacturers of 2021.

But we’ll look at what makes each collection different so that you can get a better idea about why certain sets are considered the best Calphalon cookware sets:

1 Calphalon Elite Non-Stick Cookware: built to last longer than you will, made from hard-anodized non-stick materials,
2 Calphalon Signature Cookware: emulates the quality of professional cookware, made from stainless steel
3 Calphalon Premier Cookware: stainless steel, non-stick pots, sauces, and frying pans that have volume indicators so you can cook with accuracy
4 Calphalon Classic Cookware: intended to survive through the next millennium, made from stainless steel and ceramics, non-stick so that you can spend more time cooking and less time cleaning
5 Select by Calphalon Cookware: optimize easy meals and hassle-free cooking
6 Simply Calphalon Cookware: everyday cookware composed of stainless steel and ceramics

You can probably assume this much, but Calphalon Premier is the brand’s highest-end line of products. These items can generally cook food at higher temperatures than Calphalon Classic, have three non-stick layers as opposed to the Calphalon Classic’s two layers, and boast a thicker hard-anodized aluminum.

These improvements obviously lead to a higher price range for Calphalon Premier products. However, you’d not be committing any atrocious sins but selecting one over the other.

The best Calphalon cookware sets play by the rule of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That’s why you’ll see many common materials being used across many different Calphalon sets.

Their handles are usually made from stainless steel, while the exterior of their products has a hard-anodized aluminum finish. Their non-stick interiors are regularly made from cast aluminum.

Calphalon designs their sets and their individual pieces to accomplish multiple tasks in the kitchen. They’re the Swiss Army knives of the culinary world, chameleons of the kitchen, and keyboards of the gastronomical music studio.

is that a common trait among the best Calphalon cookware sets is that they can be used on the stovetop and in the oven. The only consideration with noting is that most Calphalon pieces can only sustain heat up to 450 degrees F.
