The sides of this 10-inch nonstick griddle are low and slope gently, so your crêpes slide out without falling apart and your pancakes flip easily. No matter what you're cooking, you're guaranteed quick and even heat distribution, easy food release, and simple cleaning, thanks to the pan's three layers: an aluminum core, a hard-anodized exterior, and a reinforced nonstick surface. The aluminum core provides rapid heat conduction, while the hard-anodized exterior increases the griddle's durability. The nonstick surface allows you to cook low-fat meals without using any oil or butter. The griddle includes a collector's edition recipe card. As with all nonstick surfaces, you should not use metal utensils or abrasive cleaners with the griddle; doing so could void the lifetime warranty. --Laura Cuthbert
The perfect size and depth for delectable, fluffy crepes and omelets. Designed to meet professional standards in hard anodized aluminum with heavy-gauge, triple-coated LRS3 (Lifetime Release System) nonstick interior. Curved, stainless-steel handle. Oven safe to 450°. Lifetime warranty.

excellent product, performs as expected, Apr 25, 2023
I have had this pan for over a year. I purchased it to replace an electric crepe pan that was approximately 20 years old. This pan is much easier to use and to clean than the electric crepe pan.
I have made whole wheat crepes in this pan without a problem. I have also made whole egg and egg white crepes in this pan without any sticking problems. However, I do always spray this pan with oil before making crepes.
The non-stick on this pan is still sound after a lot of use. I do wash this pan by hand, and only use silicon or wood utensils to flip the crepes. If you are a little careful not to abuse the pan it seems to hold up fine, actually better than I expected for the price.
If you are looking for crepe recipes there is an old cookbook "Crepe Cookery" by Mabel Hoffman that is 176 pages of nothing but crepe recipes. If you can pick up a used copy of this old book (circa 1976), I have found it to be very useful.
I feel that this pan is worth more than its price tag suggests if you like crepes.

Solid performer, Apr 16, 2023
I've had this pan for a little over a year now. Most non-stick pans I have owned last about that long and then need to be replaced. This one still looks and performs like new! The surface remains unmarked, food still slides off with easy, it continues to heat evenly, and it cooks very well. I'm quite impressed, particularly since I used it almost every day to cook egges, sausages, bacon, crepes, and other things that stick easily. I only use plastic/nylon utensils and wash with a soft sponge, of course, but even delicate handling like that has eaten other brands... Unlike some, I actually apprciate the pan's weight. A good, solid performer, Calphalon's pot holds up well to heavy use. Highly recommended!

Worth it's weight in gold!, Apr 14, 2023
I have used many types of saute/fry pans in the past, but this has been the best. It has more actual "flat" cooking surface than many larger pans that have rounded, sloped sides. It has weight and heats very evenly. And, unlike other non-stick pans, I have used it at high temperatures (to sear meats, stir fry, etc.)with no ill effects. I use this pan at least 2-3 times a day every single day--from eggs in the morning to sauteing meats and veggies for dinner, mostly because it is EXTREMELY easy to clean. It also seems to be very rugged. I have used and abused it now for at least two years, and the pan and the non-stick surface are still in very good shape. I am in the process of ordering another one as a backup because I don't think I could live without one of these pans if something happened to the one that I have!

we adore this pan, Mar 27, 2023
i bought this pan after many years of cooking with the same crappy t-fal pans i've had since college. at this price, why ever by crappy pans again? we've used it for all manner of eggs and crepes and pancakes - it heats evenly and the nonstick surface is a dream.
