Let me introduce you to Calphalon, a cookware brand that is constantly improving.
The Signature collection's cookware has a hard-anodized aluminum base with a typical PFOA-free nonstick coating on the bottom. A few 5-ply stainless steel pots and pans are also available.
The triple-layer nonstick coating outlasts the dual-layer coating used in the Calphalon Classic series by 1.5 times. This cookware is safe to use with metal utensils and can be used in the oven up to 500°F. Calphalon used to have over a dozen cookware collections. However, in 2020, it trimmed its offerings by phasing out a number of less popular options.
There are currently six cookware collections available, with non-stick, stainless steel, and cast iron options.
Calphalon's Classic series is one of the most cheap. Hard-anodized aluminum with 2-layer non-stick or stainless steel components are available.- The oil-infused ceramic non-stick cookware is ideal for those who don't want to use butter or oil when cooking.
Impact-bonded stainless steel cookware has an aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel. There are also built-in measuring marks, pour spouts, and strainer lids in this set. It can withstand temperature. Calphalon's Select is another budget-friendly line. Traditional hard-anodized aluminum cookware with dual-layer traditional or ceramic nonstick interiors, stackable space-saving pieces, stainless steel cookware with impact-bonded aluminum bases, and cast iron cookware are also available. The interiors of this hard-anodized aluminum cookware line are dual-layered classic non-stick. It boasts silicone-wrapped stainless steel handles for added comfort.
It's made of medium-gauge aluminum (gauge refers to thickness), therefore it's a little lighter than the Signature and Premier lines. The cookware can withstand temperatures of up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven. Except for the cast iron pieces, all pots, pans, and lids have silicone comfort grip handles.
