Rated 5 out of 5 by MzJay Big and Beautiful
I've been a devoted Calphalon customer for a several years now. I absolutely love their products. The skillet is wonderful. Easy to clean. Heats evenly. True non-stick. It is really big and deep! It makes all of my "one pot wonders" turn out delicious. It has a very long handle and another on the side, which is a major plus for transferring. The lid seals nice and tight. My only complaint is that the skillet is REALLY HEAVY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Canadiannance Can't beat it!
I was just online looking for an extra large frying pan to replace my beloved frying pan that I've used almost every day since I bought it 8 years ago. It's such a great pan that I didn't want to settle for something inferior. The only thing that matched the size and quality of my pan was this one, and that is because it's the exact same pan. It pretty much never leaves the top of my stove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gingerbakes Heavyweight & truly nonstick!
I needed to replace a worn out nonstick skillet. I thought it was a 13" diameter skillet, so ordered this one online. When I got it, I saw my old one was smaller. This skillet is extremely heavyweight. I've never used one this huge before! I initially inaugurated it by cooking some bacon in it. Then followed with cooking sausage patties.
I tried lifting the skillet with one hand to pour off the bacon grease. The skillet was so heavy, I couldn't tilt it. I then used both hands on the handle. But still couldn't tilt it enough to completely pour off the grease! i forgot about the lift handle on the opposite side of the skillet.
If you've never used a skillet this huge before, it does take some getting used to. But it truly is non stick to make cleaning it up a breeze! This skillet will outlive me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ago316 I am in Love
When I met my first Calphalon product I fell in love because I found the products to be beautifully designed and structurally sound. Therefore when I finally decided to splurge and welcome one of the Calphalon products into my kitchen, this pan was it. I bought this pan several years ago and it is still my favorite "go to" pan for all of my stir fry and "one dish" meal needs. This pan satisfies aIl my needs for stove top cooking and even some oven baking. Additionally, I chose this pan because I like cooking in a skillet but I needed it to be large and not shallow like most standard skillets are designed to be. I am in love with this pan because it is quite durable, easy to clean and cooks all my foods evenly. It's a home run whenever you can combine beauty with functionality. Hurray!

Rated 2 out of 5 by stepheneng Not up to Calphalon standards.....
I was given this pan as a gift last Christmas. When I replaced my range with a new flat-top electric, I found that the pan "wobbled," so that part doesn't touch the cook-top. Over high heat, it gets worse. When the pan cools down, it returns CLOSE, but not all the way, to a flat bottom. I returned the pan, and Calphalon was great in sending a replacement--which does exactly the same thing. Part of the bottom is NEVER in contact with the stove and, with high heat, it gets worse. Reluctantly, I believe there's something wrong with the model. I have other Calphalon pans and swear by them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Roger N. Too Big---Ha
I bought this for my Wife who fell in love with two nonstick skillets (Calphalon) I got for her several months ago. She took one look at the 13.5 inch skillet and pronounced it was "too big," too expensive" and she would have little use for it. Fast forward three weeks. She has used the skillet almost every day (twice yesterday) and wonders why she thought it was too big and what a great bargain. She can't believe it is really nonstick as nonstick as her other Calphalon skillets and cleans up so quickly with a little soap and dish cloth. She already plans to give one to one of our sons who loves to cook for his birthday in April.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurel R. Fabulous work-horse, "go to" pan!
I purchased this pan w/lid set to replace a Cuisinart model, that was similar, that bowed in the middle after only having it a couple months. The Calphalon pan is FAR superior in quality and weight! The bottom of the skillet is thicker and heavier. More importantly, the entire bottom surface is flat on my ceramic cook top and does not "rock" like my old pan. This plan cleans up like a breeze and is definitely my "work horse" pan for the many one-skillet meals I make for my family. I also own a Calphalon 10" omelet pan, which is my "go to" pan for smaller dishes that require a fry-type pan. Excellent products!
