Calphalon 10 piece Nonstick Hard-Anodized Cookware Set

The Calphalon 10 piece Nonstick Hard-Anodized Cookware Set (model number SA10H) consists of one 1 quart saucepan with lid, one 2 quart saucepan with lid, one 3 quart covered saute pan, one 6.5 quart covered stockpot, and two skillets, one 8 inch and one 10 inch.

All the pans have a hard anodized aluminum exterior (which conducts heat efficiently), and the interior has a two layered non stick finish. The lids are made of glass (so you can see the food while it cooks), and the handles are made of stainless steel covered with cool-to-touch silicon.

Because of the non-stick interior, they recommend that you hand wash this only - do not put it into the dishwasher. But thanks to the non-stick interior, hand washing should be simple (tip: soak in soapy water first so that everything comes off with minimal scrubbing). Try to cook with wooden spoons to preserve the interior. These pans are safe in the oven to 400F and can go on top of stoves as well. They come with a 10 year warranty (as long as you have not ruined them by putting them in the dishwasher).

So should you buy this set? This set is similar to the Rachael Ray 10 piece cookware set (also non stick and hard anodized), except that in the Calphalon set, the covered saucepans are smaller. The Rachael Ray set is currently cheaper, so you might want to save a few dollars going with that instead.
