Calphalon Contemporary 10-Piece Bronze Anodized Edition Nonstick

Have you seen the NEW Calphalon Contemporary Bronze Nonstick 10-pc. Cookware Set?  When I first saw them reveal this new set on facebook I was in love.  I absolutely love my Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel Set, and I’m beyond thrilled that they brought this design in nonstick.  The bronze is perfect for any kitchen.   It has a brushed design,

and the handles and rims of the lids are mirrored stainless steel.  Where as my stainless steel set is a brushed look all around.

When I saw this set come out of the box it was the same feeling as getting a pony for Christmas.   One thing that differs aside from the nonstick from my original set is that they’ve included a 3qt Saute Pan.  Aside from just having a long handle it also has a closed handle on the opposite side for even handling, perfect!

My first nonstick set I ever owned was a store brand and had a red coating and chipped like crazy, not to mention the inside chipped as well.  The Calphalon Contemporary Bronze Nonstick 10-pc. Cookware Set is hard-anodized so it will never chip, crack, or peel!
This 10 piece set includes:
  • 8-in. Omelette Pan
  • 10-in. Omelette Pan

  • 2.5-qt. Covered Sauce Pan

How about you?

Banana Split Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce

Just a note from me, like with all nonstick cookware please remember to use a med-low heat.  Never a high flame.  Never heat an empty pan, and use nonstick friendly utensils to keep your cookware looking it’s best.

Now onto a recipe that I was inspired to make as soon as I opened this beautiful set!

    I have one of those pans and like it very much. I try not to use too much in the way of non-stick coatings, but some things really need that finish to cook properly. BTW, those pancakes are pretty incredible looking!

    We could use new pots and pans in our house and these look really nice. Also, your pancakes look AWESOME!!!!!! Thanks for the review and recipe.
