What customers say about "Key Specs"
Anolon 77709 Nouvelle Copper Stainless Steel Set
  • Love my new cookware!! This set is replacing a Teflon I've had for too long. I have had to change the cooking temps I'd been accustomed to using because they conduct the heat so much better than what I had. They are so pretty as well, I wish my cabinets had windows so I could display them!
  • They're great. As a budding chef, these have exceeded all of my expectations and more. The design is very attractive, the handles feel great, the heating seems to be very even and these definitely perform like top of the line pans.
  • These are extremely well made. Very heavy bottoms are great for even heating. The handles are well attatched. They look outstanding, and work well. I purchased them for use on an induction cook top, and they work well.
  • These pans stand out against other stainless steel pans. The slightly flared sides and the curved handles give this set an understated elegance that competing cookware lacks.
  • One thing I did notice while trying to boil water in the large stock pot.... it seemed to take forever without the lid on. I think because I was used to the thin aluminum pots and pans, heat transferred more quickly, thus heating the water faster.
  • I would say only one downside of this set is the shape of the pots and pans. They have a tapered shape, so the base is smaller than the rim....which doesn't leave a lot of surface area contact to the burner on the stove.
Calphalon Tri-Ply 1874301 10-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set
  • This pot set is great; I spun myself up on the proper use of stainless steel cookware, in addition to how to properly season pans
  • I enjoy cooking with stainless steel. But, sadly, they are already showing signs of warping. I heat them. Cook in them. And then wait until their entirely cool down before I put them into water to clean.
  • I was a bit concerned about switching from non-stick to stainless steel cookware, but this set (along with some internet advice) made the switch easy. It heats evenly and is easy to clean.
  • Ignore any complaints of food sticking. These are stainless steel pots and pans. They don't work the same as nonstick. If you don't care to learn how to properly oil or deglaze a pan then you shouldn't go for stainless.
  • These are a nice set of stainless steel cookware that should last you long time.

Anolon 77709 Nouvelle Copper Stainless Steel Set
  • Еhese pots and pans are perfect for the dishwasher too! My previous pots and pans had hollow handles that weren't completely sealed to the pan, so if not positioned correctly in the dishwasher, it would fill up with dirty dishwater.
  • Very rapid transfer of heat. Need to learn to cook with smaller flames! LOL Loved being able to go right into the oven with a frying pan full of chicken.
  • SUPER easy to clean. fried egg, browned onions, fried rice, it all sluices off after a quick soak and scrub. with some elbow grease and barkeeper’s friend, it will shine right up to original condition.
  • I love this set. They look good and cook great. They are easy too clean, keep an even and constant temperature. I like them better than my copper old Dutch which cost much more.
  • Better on the gas hob, now that i’m stuck with electric it doesn’t heat up as quickl as i’d like.
  • Holding out that last star because of lackluster performance on electric hon and the fact that it’s near impossible to wash without leaving water spots (even if immediately hand-drying).
Calphalon Tri-Ply 1874301 10-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set
  • They look really good, the handles of the pans are of a hollow construction which allow them to be handled while the pan is hot without a need for pot holders.
  • And the handles do not get hot, so no need to worry about that either. Overall highly recommend these pots and pans!
  • The handles feel very nice in my hand and the lids fit well. I was nervous about the glass but my wife insisted and I've come to appreciate it. They simply perform very well and seems as though they will last a lifetime.
  • This is a great set to own and to cook with. My only gripe is the size of the handles. I have small hands and i still think these handles could be larger, flatter in shape, and a bit more textured.
  • The handles on these are not good. Too skinny to grip. I can barely hold it steady when it's empty, so pouring things out of the skillets is very tricky.
