The high-quality Contemporary Nonstick line of cookware is designed to meet the needs of busy families while offering the high-quality construction associated with the Calphalon brand. These pots and pans offers a stylish, attractive look while making cooking and cleanup for family meals or special occasions easy and low-stress. Contemporary Nonstick cookware replaces Calphalons original and highly popular Professional Nonstick II line--but with improvements to make it even better. The most obvious enhancement is in the versatile rounded and flared design of the pots and pans. This design makes a single pan suitable for various cooking techniques and provides better access for pouring and stirring. Also convenient is the capacity line on these pots and pans, which helps prevent cooks from overfilling them. This 12-inch flat-bottom wok is an excellent example of the Contemporary Nonstick lines versatility as it cooks classic Chinese stir-fry dishes, such as Hunan Lamb, and is equally as useful for cooking soups or pan-frying fish up the sides. The pans exterior is made of hard-anodized aluminum for superior heat distribution. The interior is coated with a nonstick surface that is resistant to peeling, chipping, flaking, or cracking. This pan has one long ergonomic brushed stainless-steel handle and one loop handle--both of which stay cool to the touch on the stovetop and are riveted to the wok for durability. All Contemporary Nonstick cookware is oven-safe up to 450 degrees F and is covered by a lifetime warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde
Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 12-inch flat-bottom wok is the perfect stir fry pan. Heavy gauge 98.7% pure aluminum gives great conductivity, while the advanced 2-ply nonstick surface allows for low/no fat cooking. Unique tulip shaped design looks great and cleans up like a breeze. Safe with nylon or wood utensils--a Calphalon nylon stir fry scoop does a wonderful job. Use medium to medium-high heat for best results when stir frying- high heat really isn't needed because the aluminum conducts and retains heat so well. Flat bottom works wonderfully on flat surfaced cook tops (glass, ceramic). Lifetime warranty.
