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.
The oven safe handle is really impressive. Comfy and soft. The pan has a heavier weight than the Calphalons that I'm used to. The non-stick wraps to the exterior of the pan so cleanup is effortless. I haven't noticed any flavours imparted by the non-stick and nobody has had an adverse reaction to it. My bird hasn't died from the fumes (yet?) but I keep an exterior-venting fan on while cooking.
