Calphalon One

These are the Care and Use instructions that Calphalon publish on their own web site with regard to their infused anodised cookware.

NB References to Broilers refer to the grill section of many ovens

Before You Start to Cook

Wash your new pan and cover in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry. Do not season your pan before use. For best performance, keep it scrupulously clean. Any kind of oily residue on your pan can cause foods to stick.

Cooking With Infused Anodized Cookware

Heat Settings

Use a lower heat setting than you would normally. Calphalon cookware heats and cools quickly because it's made of heavy-gauge aluminium. It's also important to use the right heat setting for the cooking method you're using (not too high or too low).

You can experiment to find the right heat settings on your stove. No two stoves work alike. Determine where the settings work best for your cooker.

Generally, we recommend:

  • High heat for boiling or reducing liquids
  • Medium to medium-high heat for frying, sautéing and stir frying
  • Low heat for warming food, simmering, and cooking delicate sauces

Cooking Oils and Sprays

A small amount of oil, butter, or margarine is all you need to prevent sticking, if you follow these basic steps:

  • Take foods out of the refrigerator and allow them to rest on the counter about 10 minutes before cooking. Placing chilled food in a heated pan causes sticking, even in stick-resistant pans
  • Preheat the pan and oil properly (see Stove-Top Use below)
  • Use the proper temperature to cook (see Heat Settings above)


Use any utensils on Calphalon® One Infused Anodized, including metal, wood and nylon. Do not use sharp instruments or appliances such as electric mixers to cut, chop, or whip foods in the pan.

Stove-Top Use


When sautéing, stir-frying or frying, always preheat the pan at the temperature setting you'll use to cook. Preheating provides maximum control for the cooking process. The pan is properly preheated when the rim is hot-to-the-touch.

Do not preheat on high to heat the pan faster. For cooking techniques such as sautéing, stir frying, or preparing an omelette, preheat at medium to medium-high. This will make sure your food begins cooking properly as soon as you put it in the pan.

NB: The Butter Test

Heat the pan over medium to medium-high heat. When the rim of the pan is hot-to-the-touch, rub a little bit of butter over the inside of the pan. When the butter begins to bubble briskly (it should not brown), it's ready. If the butter begins to burn and turn brown, the heat setting is too high. Carefully wipe the burned butter out of the pan with a paper towel, lower the heat and begin again.

You can do the butter test even if you don't want to cook with it. Simply wipe it out with a paper towel and use the medium of your choice, or none at all.

Heat cooking oils

When searing our sautéing, a small amount of butter or oil is all you need. If your recipe calls for more, then we recommend you follow the recipe. Allow the oil to heat for a minute before adding food to the pan. Do not use aerosol cooking sprays with Calphalon® One Infused Anodized. These sprays contain a chemical propellant that is difficult to remove from cookware. To keep cooking oil to a minimum, try using a mister filled with olive oil. Alternatively, dab a bit of oil on a paper towel and carefully wipe the bottom of the pan.

PLEASE REMEMBER that shorter handles, higher cooking temperatures and longer cooking times can cause handles to get hot, especially Infused Anodized products. Cool V? long handles on Calphalon One Infused Anodized dramatically reduce heat conduction along the handle allowing for more comfortable cooking.

Oven & Broiler Use

Infused anodised pans are suitable for oven and under the broiler, use

PLEASE REMEMBER that handles will become very hot in the oven or broiler. Always use a potholder or glove to prevent burns.


Do not clean Calphalon® One Infused Anodized cookware in a dishwasher. Dishwasher detergents will damage the surface and using a dishwasher to clean the pan will void your Lifetime Warranty.

Hand wash your cookware thoroughly inside and out after every use. Wash in hot, soapy water with a dishcloth or sponge.

To restore your pans to "like new" condition, wash with a green Scotch Brite® pad and Bar Keeper's Friend®. Pay special attention to rinsing when you use Bar Keeper's Friend®; without careful rinsing, the cleaner may occasionally leave a powdery soap film.

DO NOT USE oven cleaners or other caustic cleaning solutions, baking soda, automatic dishwasher detergent, liquid bleach, liquid household cleaners used for walls, floors, porcelain, etc.

Always allow your pan to cool thoroughly before washing it. Submerging a hot pan in water can cause irreparable warping.

For stubborn burnt-on spots, allow your pan to cool then soak in hot, soapy water for about 10 minutes. Burnt-on foods will lift off after soaking.

To restore shine to stainless steel covers, wash with a dish cloth or sponge and Bar Keeper's Friend.

As Calphalon® One is hand-crafted, you may notice subtle variations in the pans' finish. These "character lines" are perfectly normal -a natural result of the manufacturing process.

TIP- if eggs and other foods begin to stick, even after following preheating and butter test instructions, it's a sure sign that grease and food residue have built up on the cooking surface. Clean thoroughly, as per instructions above.

Lifetime Warranty

Calphalon® One Infused Anodized cookware is covered by our Lifetime Warranty. Calphalon will repair or replace any item found defective in material or workmanship when put to normal household use and cared for according to instructions. Minor imperfections, surface markings as a result of shipping, and slight colour variations are normal. This excludes damage from misuse or abuse, such as improper cleaning, overheating, dishwasher use, use of caustic or other unapproved cleaners, neglect, accident, alteration, fire, theft, or use in commercial establishments.
