Twosday {Calphalon Review}

Full Disclosure: I was sent two Simply Calphalon Ceramic Nonstick pans free of charge to review.  I am not being compensated for this post, and the opinions are completely my own.  

A few weeks ago, the nice people at Calphalon sent me a couple of cermaic nonstick pans from the new Simply Calphalon line to try.  I have used them a few times since then, so I thought it was about time I give them a full written review.  Twosday style.

Two of the things I have made in the pans:
1) The chicken for the Balsamic Chicken, Strawberries, and Goat Cheese. (the 10″ pan)
2) Egg and cheese sandwich. (the 8″ pan)

Reasons that I love these pans:
1) Things do not stick to them and they clean up super easily.  Seriously.  Even burnt cheese just slides right off! (I know from experience) I love this because I don’t feel like I need to use loads of butter or oil to prevent things from sticking to the pan and burning. When I made that egg and cheese sandwich,
2) They get hot quickly, and stay hot.  Yeah, that egg sandwich that I made may have gotten a bit burnt because I underestimated how hot the pan would get as I let it sit on the stove after I cooked the egg and while I was preparing the bread.

Two MORE reasons I love these pans:
1) They are PFOA/ PTFE free. (If you want to know more about what that means, click on the link and you will be taken to a description on the EPA website.)
2) They are oven safe up to 400 degrees!

Things I would change about these pans:
1) In an ideal world everything that I use in the kitchen would be dishwasher safe.  I realize that for various reasons this isn’t really a logical idea if I want good quality tools, but it would be really convenient if it was possible.  These pans aren’t dishwasher safe, but since they clean so easily, it isn’t a huge deal.
2) I’m a little bit concerned that since the cooking space on the pans is white that over time they will start to look grungy and beat up pretty quickly.  After a few uses they are still bright white, but I just wonder how long that will last.

Would I buy them with my own money?  I think so.  The set of two is at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for $49.99.  Not a bad price for two quality pans. Also, you can almost always find a coupon for Bed, Bath, and Beyond, so really they would be even less than that. Also – they look nice.  I know this isn’t something that everyone looks for in quality cookware, but it is always an added bonus.  Hopefully that continue to look just as good through many, many, uses!
