A few months ago I made my first big cookware purchase. You see I had been cooking with some fairly inexpensive cookware that I picked up at Target when I first moved out on my own. Well, after looking into what I would need and the reviews, I decided to start out with the Calphalon – Simply Calphalon Cookware Set. For the fourteen piece set of nonstick cookware, I paid around $300, which is not that pricey considering other options out there. So far, I’m absolutely loving this cookware set, and I am a little mad at myself for not buying something like this sooner. Hopefully this review will help you decide if the Simply Calphalon cookware set is for you.
What I got: Simply Calphalon Nonstick 14 piece Cookware Set
- 8″, 10″, 12″ Omelette Pan (cover for 12″)
- 1, 2, 4 Qt. Sauce Pans (each with covers)
- 3 Qt Saute Pan (with cover)
- 6 Qt. Stock Pot
What I love:
The pots and pans have a beautiful look, and I love the stainless steel and silicon handles. Obviously they are nonstick, and the covers are made of tempered glass. Remember that any nonstick cookware should not be washed in the dishwasher, but hand washed only. At first I was worried about that because scrubbing pots and pans is no fun at all, but they easily come clean even after making caramel! It is nice to have all of the different sizes because when it is just me and the boyfriend, I don’t need to cook a lot of food. I can break out the bigger ones when I am hosting dinner parties and such. When cooking, the heat is very evenly distributed (I use a flattop electric stove, but have heard the same about gas and coil cook tops too). The food cooks quickly and perfectly, and the set looks great. Clean up is a breeze, and no matter if you are a beginner cook or a pro, you will love this set like I do, I’m sure. Another bonus is the fact that Calphalon offers a ten year warranty as long as you follow the care instructions of course.
If you are ready to find the best pots and pans for your needs and your budget, then I highly recommend the Simply Calphalon.
