The Copper exterior and the aluminum core contributes to the cookware’s ability for superior heat conduction and the use of inert stainless provides the ability to cook food in a non-reactive surface area so that it won’t tarnish or discolor even when preparing food with acidic contents. The finish of the tri-ply features graceful curves and expert craftsmanship, the brushed finish of the copper exterior makes it resistant to smudges. It is a beautiful cookware as it is hardworking.

The Calphalon Copper Cookware is bit lighter than the other brands of copper cookware, the heat accumulation properties of the pan is noticeably low if the pan gets crowded, you will also notice the dip when cooking proteins which are not quite at room temperature, but if best practices in cooking is followed then it should not be a big deal–don’t crowd the pan and don’t put in proteins which are not fully thawed. Care and upkeep of Calphalon tri-ply needs to be considered as well, the brushed copper exterior will react to acids found in soaps used in dishwashing machines, so you need to hand wash the cookware, the copper exterior also might discolor when exposed to heat for an extended period of time, but it does come off quite easily after polishing.
