Hard-anodized aluminum is a new type of super durable cookware made from an electro-chemical process that further hardens aluminum cookware. Calphalon was one of the first manufacturers of this process which produced cookware sets for home cooks. Their newest addition to the line, Calphalon One, has infused the outer layer of the hard-anodized aluminum with an advanced polymer to increase food release from the pan without sticking so you'll have less mess. These cooking surfaces resist corrosion and abrasion on both the inside and outside so they do not chip or peel. This material is so durable that anodized aluminum is even used to protect satellites from the harsh elements of outer space. Just imagine what it can do for the life of your pots and pans! Ice cream scoopers are another interesting use of this material for its superior heat conduction and non-stick surface that makes scooping a breeze!
