I highly recommend the Kitchen Essentials from Calphalon Hard-Anodized Nonstick Cookset. Well worth every penny, easy to clean, and extremely durable. I have every intention on adding to my collection since there is a griddle, wok, bakeware, utensils, etc. Enjoy!
I love my Cookset and have added other items from the Calphalon Hard-Anodized series from Target. I could not imagine cooking with anything else. [...] These are working better than some really expensive sets that are out there these days. I cook every night and then I hands wash them and put them in their little snuggies every night. [...] LOL My food never sticks and it always comes out perfect. I have the Wok and lid the Dutch oven and the Grill pan I am also planning on getting the Griddle and the Panini pan. I have all the bakeware also. BIG Calphalon FAN!!!

These are great, but you must care for them properly!
This is a great cookset. We received it as a wedding gift about two years ago. We have used each piece several times over. They heat evenly and are just as good as the other more expensive Calphalon cookware pieces we own. There are two things people need to know before buying these: 1.) They are not dishwasher safe. You need to hand wash and use Bar Keeper's Friend every so often. 2.) Do not use metal or other utensils that can scratch. If you do these two things they will last you a long time and you will be very happy with them.
First set came a little damaged and my daughter promptly took them to the local Target...they promptly refunded her money. Purchased a second set and they were perfect. Great value for the money
We have this set as well as some additional items from this line and we absolutely love them all! There is a great variety and for the price, it was definitely a great value. We've had them for about three months and really enjoy using them. They are easy to clean and work great!
