Calphalon® Contemporary Non-Stick Bronze Anodized Edition 10-Piece Cookware Set and Open Stock
Being a designer, appearance as well as function is very important. Cooking is an art and when I do create in the kitchen, it's anything from grilled cheese to soufflé. I agonized over my choice of equipment and though Al-Clad was the top I went with the Calphalon. Truly the right choice, even my caterer used them and loved them as well. Temperate is very consistent throughout the pans and the handles don't get burning hot. Nice feature, and clean up a breeze. Love them and the color, the burnished bronze is pretty as well.

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.

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.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!
I received the 10 piece set as well as the individual pieces as wedding gifts and I LOVE them!!! I literally hugged them as I took them out of the box! I swear its like you cannot ruin food in these things! They are God's gift to the housewife :)
As for the other comments regarding the color; I saw them in person and knew the color was something I wanted, so the color was not an issue for me.
I will also add that you need to use silicone utensils so as not to scratch them. As much as I love these I felt that new utensils were absolutely worth it to protect my precious new pots and pans.
I would highly recommend these to anyone!
