    This review is from: Calphalon Unison Nonstick 8-Inch and 10-Inch Omelette Pan Set (Kitchen)
    Nearly 10 months ago I purchased this item at the same time as another product, Cuisinart FCT22-20NS French Classic Tri-Ply Stainless 8-Inch Nonstick Skillet, specifically to compare them and guide my future purchases. After extensive daily usage of both products I can share my perspective and hope it helps others. I will be comparing only the 8 inch Calphalon pan to the 8 inch Cuisinart.

    The Cuisinart product is a classic pro-style pan that seemed perfect for what I was after. That said, I was drawn to the Calphalon product by the attractive pricing and decent product reviews I found here on Amazon and elsewhere on the web. I am an avid appreciator of omelettes and there is no better task to test the sticky-factor of a pan than with omelettes – especially as I am a flipper, not a folder.

    I found both the Cuisinart and Calphalon pans to have good feel to them. The handle design and the weight of the pans is slightly different. The Cuisinart handle arcs higher which I preferred a bit more. The slope of the sides of the pan on the Calphalon is steeper leaving a larger cooking surface area on the bottom. For an omelette flipper the Cuisinart’s less dramatic slope made it easier. That said, after a couple weeks of use I could achieve the same results with either.

    Both pans perform well as a non-stick surface product. Very little effort to keep things from sticking and it required little to no butter or oil to get that result from both. These surfaces on both pans seemed to perform better once “broken in” even though that’s not generally a characteristic of this material.

    Now for durability. I invest way too much in cooking gear to use sharp tools on them. So I stick with just plastic tipped tongs or a silicone spatulas. Period. Regardless of my efforts, both pans are showing signs of scratches on the cooking surface – a very disappointing finding. The Cuisinart looks to have held off scratches much better than the Calphalon. I expect that to start affecting the non-stick capabilities in a couple years as the scratches worsen. Both items are labeled as dishwasher safe and I did take advantage of that and it worked out well. The external surface of the Calphalon is easier to care for than the stainless surface on the Cuisinart.

    So, it would seem that for half the price the Calphalon performed very well against the Cuisinart. The longevity of the Cuisinart will likely be the differenciator in the long run. But since I received two pans for pretty close to the same price in the Calphalon offering it really does win my vote in the end.

    This review is from: Calphalon Unison Nonstick 8-Inch and 10-Inch Omelette Pan Set (Kitchen)
    Let me start out by saying I hate Calphalon. I’ve hated it from the get go, as I have issues with the whole concept of cooking on aluminum. I have been an All Clad fan for years (except that I can’t say much for their black LTD finish which died). Color me stainless with a copper sandwich.

    I was walking past a kitchen ware store in northern Florida, when they were offering this set at a greatly reduced price. We went in and for some strange reason, price probably, as well as the finish of the non-stick which seemed really nice, we bought the set. We were in the mood for nonstick, and our non stick All Clad omelet pan had died what I thought was an untimely death for a pan that was over $100. So we thought, what the heck. At this price, if it dies in a year, oh well. Now you can color me converted. We use this 10″ on our boat (no dishwasher) and another in our condo (we don’t put it in the dishwasher but maybe 1/4 of the time). We’ve had them for over a year now, and I can tell you that not a day (that we use it) goes by that my wife and I don’t remark to one another, ‘this is my favorite pan’. Even heat. Food slides around effortlessly, and a joy to clean with a simple sponge and dish soap. NO signs of wear on the non stick. I have to confess that we treat this pan with respect. We use high temp rubber spatulas, bamboo, and (carefully) metal tongs. Mostly washed by hand (why not, the difference between rinsing and washing this pan is so slight). You’re already washing your good knives by hand, right??

    Let me note up front: the packaging for these two pans was great, no scratches, no any defects.

    The price is amazing – 73% off! I guess this is some sort of promotion price, because one 10-inch Unison Nonstick Omelette pan costs around $90 and one 8-inch Unison Nonstick Omelette pan – about $77.

    They are made in USA, and the quality is outstanding.

    Last night I made chicken breasts in 10-inch pan and I was absolutely pleased with the results. I got lazy and did not pound out them at all. I seasoned them with pepper and a little of salt, fried them first in a little oil, 1-2 minutes on every side until glazed, and then placed them in 350-degree oven for 10 minutes: the result is perfectly cooked soft and juicy, and very attractive chicken breasts.

    The cleaning was a breeze.

    Then I made a two eye fried eggs. This was my first experience when those eggs actually slide from the pan with no problem at all.

    One more note I want to make: do not use cooking spray sold in grocery stores, because those consist other ingredients besides oil, and those can damage the pan; use oil mist or just sprinkle some oil, that’s what I did.

    I definitely recommend these pans for everyone!
