Simply Calphalon® Ceramic Nonstick 11-Piece Cookware Set
I bought one large saucepan about 6 months ago to see if I liked the ceramic interior. I was on a mission to replace all my non-stick pots and pans that inevitably chip and peel after a few years of use. The saucepan was great, as are all these in this set - and what a bargain! The only thing missing was a large soup/stew pot and I ended up buying the 8 qt stainless steel one from Calphalon.

Easy to clean, non-stick
I bought one large saucepan in this line months ago just to try it and see if I liked it well enough to replace a set of non-stick pots and pans - you know, the type that chips and peels. I love that pan and am very happy with this whole set. The only thing it's missing is a nice big soup/stew pot. This morning I made eggs over easy in the small frying pan and I have to say - if there was ever a pan that you could flip eggs in - this is it! No spatula needed, just be sure you catch them!

We decided to switch our non-stick cookware to ceramic. I was very surprised at how light weight the pans were which is great. Also, the ceramic cleans up very easy! Do not use silverware or metal utensils because the ceramic could chip. Our non-stick pans were scratched up because of metal utensils were used so these products are no different on scratches and chips. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

We received this set for our wedding. We specifically looked for a PFOA, PTFE free set and we feel good about using them. The non stick is superb - super easy to clean, even the rim. They seem to cook things evenly. We only hand wash them, so I can't speak to their use in the dishwasher, but they are so easy to clean, its not a big deal. We are very happy with this gift! The one con is that the medium sized sauce pan is a little bit small. We kept an old one that's slightly bigger for the things were the dutch oven is too big.

Time to cook
I have made several dishes with the new cookware. Works great and looks even better!

Problem with ceramic interior.
I have had these since 12/25/2013. They hang on a Calphalon pot hanger from my kitchen ceiling. I have only wiped them with a soft sponge, no dishwasher, no scrubbers. Only use wooden spoons in them. They don't sit in my cabinet inside each other. I now see circular, tiny pocks of missing ceramic inside them. Mostly towards the inside rim, but not all. I do use them with their lids. Otherwise, they are the greatest cookware I have ever owned. I have emailed Calphalon to see if it's a defect or I could possible be doing something wrong. I will post when I hear back. Also could not find them on the Calphalon site. Maybe manufactured just for BB&B?

I received this set as a Christmas gift and although I haven't used it long, I absolutely love it. The ceramic interior is by far the best non stick coating I have ever used, it's safer for the environment and clean up is a breeze. The pans heat up very quickly and maintain an even heat during the cooking process.

Only had the set for about 1 month but they are awesome, very easy to clean up, barely using any oil, if any, more for flavor, heats up quickly. The one thing that is a minor annoyance, the bottom scratches very easily, I barely move the pans/pots on the burner and there are scratch marks already. Too bad there isn't a better outer coating. Overall nice set.
