Calphalon cookware is excellent due to its stick-resistant surface. But what's the best way to use this specialized cookware? As with any cookware, start with a clean pan. Take whatever you are going to cook out of the refrigerator at least 10-15 minutes beforehand or run the food under lukewarm water. Don't place cold food to a hot pan, as this will make it will stick. Preheat the pan to a medium to medium-high heat only, you only need high for boiling. Once the pan is hot add your butter or oil, if you are cooking with it, and allow that to heat. Add your food and watch it; the edges will usually let you know when it needs to be flipped or turned.
