Rated 4 out of 5 by SusanRichardstheFirst Contemporary cook ware.
I bought this set to replace the stainless set I had. I originally bought the stainless because they where dishwasher safe. But they were horrible to cook with. And did not come clean in the dishwasher. The new set is great comes clean and looks great. The best part is they cook great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chill First time calphalon purchase
As stated this is the first time I've ever bought calphalon as cookware. Just always seemed out of my price range at the time. Well for my birthday my room mate bought this set for me. He was tired of scrubbing out the old copper bottom stainless steel set that I had and cooked with regularly for years. So with us moving we decided to get this set, and we could not have been happier. I use less oil and no butter now when I cook and everything seems to taste better, let alone the presentation of the food I make is so much better. He couldn't be happier about the fact it only takes minutes to clean instead of hours of soaking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buckeyetree3 Best cookware ever!
I bought both of my son's the Contemporary Nonstick 8-piece cookware set for wedding gifts. They raved about them so much, I purchased a set for myself, and my boyfriend now has 6 pieces! We all like the even cooking, size of each piece and look of the product, and it cleans up so well. Will not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thotpham Original but better with dish washer safe!
I loved the original set so much that I had to have the dish washer safe version of these pots. I thought that I saved so much time with the originals being non stick, these are even better being able to just pop them into the dish washer and go about my business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NedB Great Cookware, but...
This is actually great cookware, as stated in the review title, but after using it for a while, and obviously our fault for not being more careful, three of the eight pieces have become scratched and when used, release little pieces of black particulate (non-stick material). One of the sauce pans is totally unusable and the other one is close to being unusable. The stock pot is also getting close to being unusable. So it's time to replace the set with a new one (yes, Calphalon Contemporary Non-Stick).

Rated 4 out of 5 by retlibrarian my family likes this product
Cooks evenly. Easy to clean up by hand. Haven't had the nerve to put it into dishwasher yet. Will try that as soon as I change dishwasher detergent. Wish the handles were a little shorter; esp. the frying pan. It gets in the way on stovetop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mayna Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 8-pc. Cookware Set
love the Calphalon Nonstick 8-pc. Cookware Set. Love the show, watches it on fox KTVU Channel 2 in San Francisco, Ca. I'm a retaired grandmother of three kids, 9, 8, and 7. My son has one daughter and my daughter has 2, they both work late night jobs and I get them Monday thru Friday. I watches you show while cleaning while they are at school.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jib finish doesn't last
I've had these pans for 7 years, and the 2 frying pans started to flake after 1 year. They mark-up easily, even when using the proper utensils. They seem to be very well made, other than this. I've since bought another frying pan for much cheaper that has upheld better. I just don't think they're worth the money. You can get just as good of a non-stick set for much less.
