Rated 2 out of 5 by bluebear222 Pan already dull and rusty-looking
Got this set as a wedding present from my family in Nov 2015. One of the pans looks dull and rusty-looking already! Dishwasher safe so do not understand!! Will not buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Peg001 No better than cheap pans
I bought the 12 piece set. It has not held up well. I have washed in the dishwasher since it is dishwasher safe. Some of the pieces are fine on the outside others look horrible

Rated 5 out of 5 by pghpensfan88 Practical Set--Would Recommend to Anyone!
I received these off my wedding registry, and am really glad I did. I was using a mismatched set of hand-me-down cookware from college, and needed a refresher. I was unintentionally ruining a lot of food because of sticking, uneven cooking, and the occasional flaking of my "so-called" non-stick coating.
I love that these are dishwasher safe and low-maintenance! I can enjoy my meal after cooking without having to worry about food being caked onto my pots and pans--after leaving them to cool, they are incredibly easy to get clean! They have a good weight to them and are very attractive, so I'm not embarrassed anymore when I cook for company.
I have yet to use these in the oven, but love that option. Sometimes I like to get a good sear in before baking, so this should definitely help me avoid having to transfer food from pan to pan during the cooking process. I would recommend these for anyone looking for a practical set (all of the sizes seem useful!) of low-maintenance cookware.
I also love that Calphalon has a lifetime warranty on their products. I hope to never have to use it, but have heard great things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Domesticated mommy Been amazing so far
We bought 2 of these an pan and skillet a little over a year ago we love them we don't use metal on them and we always hand wash them. The Finish is still on the inside and out there are a few light scratches on the inside that you can barely see but so far the ones that we have bought have been amazing who bought the set yesterday. Excited start using this set. I gave it 4 stars only bc I can see a few light scratches, and especially sense we baby the heck out of them I was a little disappointed to see that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sbtemple Cooks great but not holding up
I agree with the previous posts. I eceived this cookware as a wedding gift and have only used them for 5 months. They cook wonderful but they are already turning gray and the coating is coming off inside. I use coated utensils so I didn't think I should have this problem. Not pleased seeing how these pots are expensive and should last me many years. Pictures are available; couldn't get them to attach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Delatorre28 Great set however...
I love this set and I've had them 3 years. I just decided to put a few of them in the dishwashe since they are dishwasher safe... I should have read the reviews first.... Now three of my pans are a white/gray color and don't match the rest. Not happy about that at all I don't think dishwasher safe should be advertised.

Rated 3 out of 5 by urbanteacher Non stick calphalon
I bought this set to replace a Calphalon set that I loved but is not nonstick. Since I cook a lot I was really getting tired of scrubbing pots and pans everyday. I love that it is nonstick and dishwasher safe although I would not put them in the dishwasher because they would take up too much room. I am disappointed that the handles get hot and I need to use oven mitts all the time. I am also disappointed in the odd pan shapes. They are all normal sizes (2.5 quart, 3 quart, etc...) but are very wide and therefore not very deep. I was really hoping they would be just like the set I had that I love but in a nonstick version. I would have probably given a higher rating if I was not comparing them to my previous Calphalon set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by domesticdiva24 The Best Cookeware Set!
In the past few years I went through two to three different cookware sets. Only to be extremely disappointed with the quality and texture of each set. A few months ago my husband bought me the Calphalon Contemporary 12 pc Nonstick Cookware Set as a housewarming present for our new house. This is the BEST cookware set! In the past I have had problems with supposedly non stick cookware not being not stick. With Calphalon I do not have that problem! No matter what I cook nothing sticks. It has held up very well and still looks brand new after many uses (I wash everything by hand and never put it in the dishwasher). It is absolutely wonderful to cook with and also beautiful to look at. I could not be more happy with this cookware set.
