What Is Calphalon?

Calphalon first started as Commercial Aluminum Cookware Company in 1963. The company wanted the regular consumers to have access to their durable and superior cooking performance in 1976 previously enjoyed by chefs only.

For more than 40 years, the company kept on enhancing a cook’s food experience during preparation, baking, cooking and serving.

Calphalon is also the first industry which applied a method of hard-anodizing which is a method of treating raw aluminum. It was first developed by aerospace industry but then applied by Calphalon to cookware.

There is another new set revolutionized by Calphalon which is cooking with a new nonstick line called Calphalon Unison in 1992. They also added stainless bakeware, cookware, cutlery and utensils for a comprehensive kitchenware assortment.

Calphalon offers its consumers a wide range and full set of cookware surfaces like enamel cast iron, hard anodizing aluminum like I mentioned, nonstick and stainless steel.

However, Calphalon was purchased by Newell in 1998. Since then, the company introduced a lot of other products that every chef and inspiring cooks are using in an optimized cooking experience.

In 2001, they designed and launched the Tri-Ply Stainless Steel cookware. It was designed with three layers of stainless steel that match the aluminum’s cooking performance.

One year later, Calphalon extended to cutlery division. It used the same standards of performance used in their other products.

In 2003, they introduced their contemporary platform. It already includes the cookware, cutlery, contemporary non-stick and contemporary stainless steel.

Where Is The Place Of Production?

Calphalon Unison Nonstick is still manufactured and produced in Toledo, Ohio, USA up until the present days.

There are four major lines currently in production namely: Calphalon One, Contemporary, Everyday and the lesser Calphalon Kitchen Essentials.

There are currently four outlet stores available in the USA where you can buy this high-quality and durable cookware. They are the following: 2 in Texas, 1 in Massachusetts, 1 in Gilroy, California.

If you are buying Calphalon products, it will be indicated where it is made. Some of the products are made in China and most of the products are made in the US but is way more expensive than the China made one. Anyway, just take note of the four outlets available because their Calphalon products are produced in the US.

You can also purchase Calphalon cookware from Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s, Target, Kohl’s or Bloomingdale’s.

  • One of the advantages you can get from using Calphalon cookware is that it has a great heat inducting capacity. Their cookware is made from an infusion of the polymer particles within the spaces of surface’s exterior. It also results in a shinier surface than traditional cookware and has a good resistance capacity.
  • The anodized surface of the cookware will give you resistance towards discoloration and scratches.
  • Another advantage is that has a better core properties than most cookware. Its outer covering makes it tougher and harder. It might he hard on the outside but it’s also lightweight on the inside. If it comes to contact with other elements, it resistance will avoid it from corrosion.
  • One of the advantages of using the hard-anodized cookware is that it is durable and resistant. It is also non-toxic and non-reactive. Non-toxic because it doesn’t use PFOA in its production. Non-reactive because unlike other metallic pans, the non-porous coat stays in the aluminum to prevent the aluminum from leaching when cooking acidic foods.
  • These products are also very easy to clean.

I hope that your questions are already answered. So if you’re planning to buy new sets of cookware, bakeware, and cutlery manufactured by Calphalon, just check out the stores I mentioned and ask the retailers if the Calphalon wares they sell are 100% made in the US.
