Back in January, I met with two representatives from Calphalon. We had lunch and they told me all about their cookware and their new program called "Your Set by Calphalon". It is really a neat concept. You start off by selecting either the AccuCore Stainless Steel or Unison Nonstick 5-piece set and then add the pieces you want to complete your set. You buy the additional pieces at a discount - the more you buy, the bigger the discount. You can get up to 40% off the additional pieces. I love this idea!
The website is fun to play around on. Not only can you customize your set of cookware, you can browse and see what other people selected (Iron Chef Michael Symon built a set) and watch videos with some delicious recipes. The site is iPad friendly. I use my iPad in the kitchen all the time, so I love this!
I was really worried about pan searing the chicken in the stainless pan. My other stainless pan tends to stick. Well, the chicken didn't stick at all in the Calphalon AccuCore Stainless Steel Saute Pan! I was SO impressed, and relieved! The chicken crisped up nicely and dinner was a huge hit!
The 6-quart Unison Nonstick Sauté Pan is huge, but surprisingly light. I love how roomy it is. It can easily accommodate cooking 4 chicken breasts at a time. The best part is that the nonstick surface sears meat without a lot of oil.
I sautéed some chicken for dinner the other night and it turned out great. I can not wait to cook more with this pan! I think crab cakes and sautéed vegetables would work great in this pan.
The best thing about both of these sauté pans is that they are dishwasher safe! Cooks great and dishwasher safe - can't beat that!
