Calphalon Tri-Ply Collector's Edition 3-Quart Chef's Pan with Lid

Calphalon Tri-Ply Collector's Edition 3-Quart Chef's Pan with Lid

Calphalon's Tri-Ply combines the best qualities of stainless steel and aluminum cookware! It incorporates the beauty of a mirror-polished, 18/10 stainless steel exterior with the superior conductivity and performance of a permanently bonded, heavy gauge aluminum core. Designed for comfort with a flared rim, ergonomic cool "V" handle and a domed, tempered glass cover. Stainless interior is nonreactive to foods, so your recipes taste better. Best of all Tri-Ply cookware is completely dishwasher safe! Manufacturer's lifetime warranty.
Customer Review: Well worth the price.
This piece of cookware is great. Tough & easy to clean. Glass lid lets you see what you're doing right or wrong. I recomend this for every kitchen.
Customer Review: Another great addition!
Slowly but surely, I'm accumulating all the pieces to my Tri-Ply collection. This pot has some redundancy, as it's very similar to my 3-1/2-Quart Saucepan, but the main difference is that the sides are a bit sloped. Thus, I can use it for other applications, such as stir-frying and casseroles. Moreover, this size is a very handy size to have.

One further note- there is a feature I like about the Tri-ply line, in that the lids collect the moisture during cooking, accumulates this on the lid, and deposits back into my food. This really helps to re-moisturize my food, and in general, make everything taste better!

What I can't believe is someone down below comparing the Tri-Ply line to Simply Stainless. That's like comparing BMW to Chevrolet. SS does not come with a lifetime warranty, and is NOT tri ply all around, it just has an aluminum core. Pay more for quality cookware.

A note about cleaning- after extended use, there will be tarnishing and brown blemishes (at least on my gas range). To get rid of these, do NOT use Bon Ami because it's too gentle- doesn't get rid of stains. Best way to go is Barkeeper's Friend, about $2.50 at your local supermarket, or Cameo Stainless Steel Cleaner. However, Cameo is more abrasive than Barkeeper's Friend, and WILL reduce the mirror polish of these pans. Barkeeper's is the way to go- remember to ALWAYS rub in a circular manner- back and forth will scratch the surfaces.
