At Amazon, the cookware gets high reviews; the 8 piece set received 4 out of 5 stars overall.One says,
"I bought this set to replace my old no-name cookware set. It's a HUGE difference and I'm glad I bought Calphalon. The material is thick and heavy which are the characteristics of good cookware according to my aunts who've cooked for 30 years. The design of this set is really nice. I was worried about the handle that is made of some kind of metal though it's written as hand-cool handle. From my cooking, the handle is cool even when the pots/pats were at the temperature of boiling hot.
"I highly recommend this set. It looks really good and the quality is way beyond my expectation!"
Another long time user says:
"Have been using set for 1 year. Extremely pleased-highly recommend. Not top of the line but definitely worth every $$ I paid. Switched to gas stove 6 months ago and really appreciate difference between these pots and cheaper quality pots. Handles stay cool even with burner on high. Easy to clean with soft scrub pad."
The ten-piece set rated even higher at 4 1/2 out of five stars. One said,
"It has taken me awhile to come to the conclusion that this is the best set of cookware I've ever owned.
"I did my homework and there is no doubt that All-Clad is the best. I considered All-clad and have several pieces, but Calphalon is by far the best set for the money. I mean, come on, $1000???. I can't afford that, and if I could I'd like a chef to come with it. And another thing, I'm not super gentle with my pans and for the price of this set I don't feel guilty about banging them around."
Reviewers generally find this Calphalon line heavy, durable, and particularly were impressed by the good value for the price.
