The Calphalon 8-piece Unison Nonstick Cookware Set offers eight essential pieces that home cooks of any skill level can use to prepare a variety of dishes. Use the 8-inch and 10-inch skillets for omelets, bacon, pancakes and grilled cheese sandwiches. Because these skillets feature nonstick coatings, you won't have to use as much fat in your pan, making them perfect for health-conscious families. The 3-quart saucepan with lid is ideal for making rice or reheating soups. The lid keeps moisture in the saucepan, so your food will be tender and moist. Thanks to its nonstick surface, this saucepan is easy to clean, even if you accidentally leave your oatmeal sitting in it for hours. The 4-quart saute pan and the 8-quart stockpot both feature a nonstick surface. This specially designed coating makes these items ideal for searing meats, poultry or fish. Sear your beef cubes in the stock pot, and then use it to make a one-pot boeuf bourguignon. Use the saute pan for searing meat, then cover the pan with the included lid and reduce the temperature to fully cook your meat through to the desired temperature. This pan is also great for reducing sauces. Its large surface area allows moisture to evaporate efficiently. With the clear lids, you'll be able to tell when your food needs more liquid or when it's almost finished cooking without having to lift the lid and let precious heat and moisture out. Once you're done preparing your family's meal, simply slide these Calphalon products in the dishwasher. All of the pieces are dishwasher safe.
