Rated 5 out of 5 by Hammond B3 You get what you pay for and that's good here.
Pricey. Yes but trying Calphalon has introduced me to a whole new world of cooking. It has made time in the kitchen much more enjoyable with it's truly refined way of doing things. I had no idea pots and pans could make such a difference in outcome and the added control could make a real cook out of me. By the way I was a caveman in the kitchen and my only watching of a cooking show has been Dan Ackroyd's impression of Julia Childs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DAVwife Calaphon omlet pan meets expectations.
Previously I bought a 10" pan because we have a new glass top range. It doesn't scratch the surface of the range at all. However the underside of the pan is beginning to turn a coppery color. I don't know if this will be a problem in the future or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Garrison The cheese omelet pan
My wife and I own an 8" classic Farberware fry pan that is part of a set purchased when we got married in 1966. From apparent less than ideal use the bottom is slightly warped and my three special omelets a week always stick to the bottom of the pan. Excellent luck replacing a broken 10" Farberware fry pan in that same set with a Calphalon Tri-Ply 10" Fry Pan led me to purchase the Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 8" Omelette Pan - Sleeved. Farberware cookware is no longer all aluminum clad. I had no interest in an aluminum slug on the bottom of the fry pan. The Calphalon Tri-Ply piece is essentially my personal omelet pan every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It will be my omelet pan for my remaining days (I presume). It is quality at a reasonable price.

Every time I use it, it gets more of a patina. Pretty soon, considering how well it makes omelettes and how much I like to eat omelettes, it will look a hundred years old, an antique before my time.

Rated 2 out of 5 Stained with first use
I'm trying to move away from non-stick coated pans so I had high hopes for this pan after reading reviews, but I was very disappointed after using it once. I made a grilled cheese sandwich in it, following instructions to preheat the pan (over med. heat) before putting butter in it.I lightly buttered the bread and cooked the sandwich, which burned within 2 minutes, even tho it was only heated over medium heat.Also, the pan developed brown stains over the bottom which wouldn't come off with soaking in hot ssoapy water for hours. I finally had to use bar keepers friend and a plastic scrubber to remove the stains.

Perfect for single servings, such as eggs for breakfast, a hamburger, grilled cheese, etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nycam sticking with eggs
I love my new Caphalon stainless set, but after cooking in the 8" skillet for about a month, the eggs are sticking. Not slightly, but completely, making me think that I have inadvertently 'scotchbrighted' off some clear coating on my stainless finish.
I have not had such a severe sticking problem problem with the rest of the items in my set, but there is some hard scrubbing required even after boiling water- although I do have hard water.
