Customer Review: great wok
It's a great stir fry pan, larger than I expected. The size is perfect for a stir fry dish. Not as sticky as I expected. It's got sticky only when starch is used, but very easy to clean. My husband likes it, too.
Customer Review: A fine pan
I just recieved my pan yesterday and proceeded to make pasta primivara, and like all of my other Calphalon pans it performed wonderfully. No discoloration, and easy cleanup. In fact the Tri Ply line I have found to be extremly easy to clean, I just keep a can if Bar Keepers Friend at the sink if needed. To the individual whose pan looked like a tailpipe. Perhaps the pan was not clean or was overheated. I have several of the pans from this line and I have never experienced that type of discoloration. I have seen the tri ply copper turn strange colors on the outside but never the stainless. Regarding a comment made by one reviewer about hard anodized, it does NOT react with acid foods, that is the reason it is used. Also, regarding professional kitchens, and I have worked in a few, it is almost universal that aluminum pans are used in resturant kitchens, very few use stainless. Aluminum is the next best conductor after copper. And, as such, hard anodized pans conduct heat much better than stainless clad pans, faster and more evenly distributed.
Also, and my friends at Amazon my not like this, the price of 39.99 is the suggested retail price listed on the Calphalon site for this pan. Many of the pots and pans shown here to be at a huge discount are actually at the manufacturers price. Regardless it is still a fine pan at a resonable price.
