From The Manufacturer

The Calphalon Classic Nonstick 5-Quart Saute Pan with Cover is made with dual-layer nonstick for extra-easy food release and cleanup, and is constructed from durable hard-anodized aluminum for fast and even heating. With its wide, flat cooking surface, the multi-purpose non stick saute pan gives you plenty of room to brown or sear chicken, fish, steaks or vegetables. Low sides make it easy to flip, stir and turn foods, while still keeping splattering to a minimum. This saute pan is finished with a long, stay-cool stainless steel handle. Includes oven-safe tempered glass lid to help foods retain moisture when cooking.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Offers an impressive feature set that includes non-stick hard anodized cook surface, strong stainless steel handles, and full lifetime warranty.
A nonstick interior promotes easier cooking and cleanup. This saute pan comes with a hard-anodized aluminum construction, giving it an extra element of durability.
- Heavy
The pan’s main feature is its hard anodized-aluminum construction that guarantees the fast build-up of even heat across the full surface of the bottom.
The pan is constructed of cast stainless steel with a Teflon coating on the bottom surface of the pan. This means nothing will stick to the pan without grease or oil.

What reviewers didn't like

A few consumers gripe about warping and the finish chipping in spots after a few uses.
Takes up a lot of space. Some wish it could handle higher oven temperatures. May warp over time.
- Heavy
The lid is not oven safe. The pan is not dishwasher safe. There is no warranty to protect the product from defects or damages that may occur while in use.
