Calphalon® Contemporary Non-Stick Bronze Anodized Edition 10-Piece Cookware Set
Not as Bronze, but fantastic set 18 months out
I wanted to come back and give an honest assessment after owning this set for a little over a year and a half.
Other reviewers are right, they are not as bronze as in the pics, however some of the pieces I have are close while other barely have a hint.
That being said, I love them to cook in. Use them everyday. I never put them above medium or medium-high heat and have had no problems with the interior coating. Using the right utensils, not putting on high, not using cooking sprays, and making sure they are cooled before putting them to soak has kept them in almost brand new condition.
Happily would purchase other Calphalon products in this line.

The only cookware in my kitchen.
I started my calphalon collection with the two-burner griddle and wok that were offered as Christmas hostess sets. I have since replaced all my cookware and utensils with Calphalon brand. Cooking with Calphalon is amazing; no additional oils or fat needed and clean-up is a breeze. The bronze colour of this set is very subtle, but different from the regular gray. After having solid lids, I find the glass lids more convenient to cook with. After a year of heavy use, all the pieces still look brand new.

I received this entire set for my wedding. In the store, they looked great. What I received looked nothing like it. They hardly have any hint of a bronze color. Also, I had to return it 3 times before I finally got a set in which none of the pieces were damaged. I have had them for 4 months and the coating is already coming off! I have treated them very carefully and only use the recommended utensils, but one pan looks like the edges are shredding. The cheap set I had in college lasted longer!

Great product, however, be aware that it is NOT bronze in color and you cannot purchase an additional 2.5qt sauce pan to go with the one that comes in the set.
