Calaphon boasts eight different types of nonstick cookware. That is a lot to choose from, and to tell you the truth, we got lost in trying to figure out which type we’d want and where we could buy them. In order to save you the trouble, we’ve complied a detailed list.
All Calaphon Nonstick Cookware sets share some common characteristics. They are built from hard anodized aluminum, which is durable, lightweight, and heats food evenly. The nonstick coating holds up to normal kitchen use, so it will last years as long as you take care of it properly. The coating is PFOA free and oven safe to at least 400 degrees (depending on the set). And finally, all Calphalon Nonstick cookware pieces have at least a 10-year full warranty.
