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.
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

Excellent Product!, Apr 11, 2023
I bought this pan at a discount on a Friday sale. I think I paid about $19.95. I bought it to replace a non-stick 10" skillet which I used frequently. This pan is so much better. It does take a little longer to heat up than the thinner one I was used to, but once it is heated, the entire pan generates the same intensity heat so that whatever you have in the pan cooks evenly. I also can turn the heat off a few minutes before what I am cooking is done and let the heat of the pan finish it off. Since getting this pan, I have burned far fewer things. I highly recommend this item!

Perfect Pan! WOW!, Apr 4, 2023
This thing is now the workhorse of our little kitchen. I got it last month on one of those Friday sales (cheap pricing and free shipping). We use it for omelets, eggs, bacon, grilled cheese sandwiches and yesterday we used it for hamburgers for the first time. WOW! Wipes clean with just a wet paper towel, folks! No scrubbing needed. Perfectly even heating, even on an ancient electric stove.
DO NOT PUT THIS PAN IN THE DISHWASHER! ONLY USE NYLON, SILICONE "RUBBER" OR WOODEN IMPLEMENTS/TOOLS! DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL! The directions clearly tell you about these things, but I've read some pretty poor reviews of this pan here at Amazon which describe the problems people had with this pan, because they didn't follow the directions! Duh! You never use steel wool on nonstick coatings, or metal knives and forks, but some people did exactly that and whoops, what do you know---they scratched their pan. Some people put it in the dishwasher and whoops--they pitted the outside of the pan, which is made of anodized metal.
Just wipe it out and put it away dry and you will never need another small pan like this again in your lifetime. I mean it. I am getting another one of these, plus splurging on lots more in their commercial nonstick line. I ordered the 11" square griddle pan---that's another great pan---and I now want to order the covered 10" and 12" double-handled stovetop pots/pans.
My pan was made in China (at least, the plain white, cardboard box it came in said it was). It was perfect as punch and works extremely well, regardless of its origin.
Trust me. BUY THIS PAN, AT THIS PRICE, WHILE YOU CAN!

Just right...., Apr 1, 2023
This little pan is just right for keeping on the stove. Having it there makes the idea of putting something on to cook a very appealing thought. It's got a nice weight to it and once it's up to temp. you can just sit back and let it do it's thing.
BE WARNED, you don't use this pan at the highest heat setting on your stove. It will burn your food. Good cookware cooks at a lower temp because it holds the heat so well.

Kitchen workhorse, Mar 31, 2023
I am a chef and after perusing all of the restaurant supply places I found this pan. I just bought six for the restaurant. Do we make crepes? No not often. What you are looking at is the best quesadilla pan I have ever used.Why? First of all the nonstick is bulletproof. We use high btu gas stoves and the non stick is undeterred unlike many of the pans we have used here. A little too much heat with these other pans and the coating starts to fail. It could be the thickness of the aluminum or just great non stick on the calphalons. Look at the price and you will understand why I bought six.

A Quality Pan, Mar 28, 2023
Yes this is a Chinese manufactured pan--however the only quality issue I can complain about is a slightly uneven polishing of the handle right where it is riveted to the pan. The pan itself it perfect, the nonstick coating appllied flawlessly, the anodizing on the exterior also perfect. The riveting looks to be superb as well.
Like all Calphalon this pan heats evenly. This really shows with foods like pancakes, which cook beautifully and evenly. The weighting is excellent, and the handle is comfortable. Cleanup is a snap. On the minus side, the hard anodized exterior is more difficult to keep looking perfect, and has a tendency to stain. A little Bon Ami helps here.
This pan is as frequently used as any one in my kitchen, and is a joy to work with. Also, with its very low sides and sweeping curved handle, it looks so much like a culinary Ferarri hanging on my pot rack amid the more pedestrian cooking utensils! I highly recommend this pan, especially at the great Amazon Friday Sale price!
