Different materials such as cast iron, stainless steel, copper, carbon steel, aluminium etc. are used for the manufacturing of cookware. Every metal has its own advantages and disadvantages. Aluminium has good thermal conductivity but less than that of copper. Whereas, cast iron can withstand high temperatures but provides slow heating.
Calphalon added another metal to produce the cookware. Apart from copper and stainless, it also added aluminum to the construction of the cookware. The efficiency of heat transfer is achieved using the copper as exterior and aluminum as the core. It is oven safe for up to 450 degrees F and includes a life time warranty.
No more burnt food bits to pick out of you dinner entree. This cookware is also a great tool for the health conscious because it allows them to cook with very little use of oils and butter, eliminating unnecessary calories while sealing in the taste. Then there is my favorite feature, easy cleanup. The nonporous surface does not allow food to stick so cleanup is as simple as a damp cloth and few drops of dishwashing liquid. Some brands claim to be dishwasher safe but I highly recommend hand washing as the harsh chemicals in most automatic dishwasher detergents is very hard on this type of cookware. But that`s not all.
Stainless cookware is the most common but also the most friendly when it comes to price and qualities. It is popular for its good tensile strength, outstanding resistance to corrosion and non-reaction with alkaline and acidic materials like tomatoes and wine. Stainless steel pans make excellent sauces after sautéing the food. The only disadvantage is that stainless steel does not conduct heat well. It requires a solid aluminum or copper center to make it more responsive to heat. If you want your food to cook correctly, you need to get a high-quality heavy gauge stainless steel with aluminum sandwiched in-between. Stainless steel cookware is easy and simple to clean. You can wash it in a dishwasher and scrape with nylon pads.
