What we liked
It has all of the features you need to cook any meal from breakfast omelettes to Thanksgiving dinner–it also comes with dishwasher safe lids so you can take your cooking to go!
What we particularly like about this cookware set is that it’s an investment that will last for many years due to the durability that the hard anodized aluminum provides.
We have tested it and found it to be non-stick and extremely easy to clean–you can cook on any type of stove top including gas, electric, induction, and ceramic glass. We found that it heats up evenly as well due to the hard anozided aluminum.
If you’re looking for a non-toxic product, this is the set for you because it doesn’t contain PFOA or PFOS like some other brands do.
What we also liked about this cookware set was that it has silicone handles. To some this may seem insignificant, but this can really increase the cooking experience by a lot, as you never have to worry about burning your hands.
And finally, the oven safe temperature up to 400 degrees makes it great for cooking recipes such as fried chicken, in case you need to fry it on the stove top and then transfer it into the oven.
What we didn’t like
What we didn’t like about the calphalon signature cookware set was that the lids may be dishwasher safe, but the pans themselves are handwash only. However this isn’t too much of an issue for us as the non stick coating really does provide a fantastic hand washing experience.
We also didn’t like that it’s made in China. As you may or may not know, after calphalon were taken over by Newell, they transferred the Calphalon lines overseas from Ohio to China for production. This was to lower the costs of the cookware, but they did lower the quality of it too. The only calphalon cookware set that’s still being made in the USA is the premier stainless steel cookware set from Calphalon.
What the customers thought?
So we decided to have a look through various forums such as reddit, quora, facebook and also look at ecommerce reviews such as Amazon to see what the customers really thought.
This gave us an accurate way of finding out the overall feeling of this cookware set as we know that fake reviews are a big problem on Amazon.
What the customers said was that they were very happy with the cookware set, and that it was excellent quality. They said that the non-stick coating is of high quality and lasts a long time before needing to be replaced.
The only problem we found in these reviews is that there were no reviews for people who had used this product over the last 3 years. This implies that the Calpalon fans were looking for the latest versions of their cookware sets and buying and reviewing those, however that doesn’t make this cookware set any less useful than it is.
So, what do we think overall about this cookware set? Is it really worth purchasing? I would say it is.
With everything taken in mind from it’s fantastic non stick ability, to the smallest of features such as it’s silicone handles , you can’t go wrong with this cookware set. There are a few drawbacks such as the lack of reviews, but there are more benefits than anything else that will make it worth your money and time.
Overall the Calphalon Signature is an amazing 10-piece nonstick cookware set from one of the most popular brands in the world. With everything taken into consideration, we recommend purchasing this cookware set to use for years to come!
