I already had 2 calphalon omlet pans & a Calphalon wok (plus a couple of spoons by them too), so I know how much Calphalon is good. Oh yeah, some baking pans & cookie sheets. I have a 2.5 qt stainless steel Calphalon saucepan, but it doesn't clean as nicely as the nonstick hard anodized pans.

So, why the ban of Teflon? The late great Newton graduate Roy Plunkett invented/discovered it! (When asked "what are you most proud of" with regards to Teflon, Roy always said it was the use of Teflon in making artificial hearts. He even had one fellow thank him for his product because he was alive thanks to his artificial heart.)

Teflon when heated to a certain temperature does something.. and it also causes cancer (not that many things don't!) but the heating thing when I read the findings was enough for me to get rid of my 2 teflon pans.
