Very pleased with this purchase. Pan is huge and heavy. Quality item. I recently ditched (to charity) an entire set of expensive Calphalon cookware. I bought this saute pan after a lot of research, but still unsure as to whether or not buy an entire set. This was my tester piece. I'm thrilled to give this the thumbs up and now be able to buy the set. Even my 92 yr old grandmother was impressed and she's pretty darn critical of the kitchen tools. I should have listened to her years ago when she told me my brand new Calphalon set was junk and that I paid too much. Yes, I did and it was. Overstock shipping was quick. Arrived in retail box. Glad the FedEx guy hid it behind something near front door since it was obvious what it was.
As expected at this level for Calphalon, the non-stick surface is very good. With additional layers of metal, it takes a bit longer to get to temperature, but hikds that heat for a better cooking experience. Its longevity is still to be seen, but previous lower tier Calphalon it replaced lasted over 5 years.
These skillets seem very good so far. They have a nice feel: not too heavy but not light either. The handles stay cool, unlike some of my Calphalon. I do not know how well the non-stick coating will hold up as I have only had these a short time but I am very pleased with the purchase.
