Developed through a unique collaboration between Calphalon and Williams Sonoma, the Elite cookware collection sets a new standard for nonstick performance. Metal utensils won't damage the release performance of the durable, triple-layer nonstick interior, and the specially textured surface excels for searing foods-two key features that set this collection apart from other nonstick cookware. Made in the USA and exclusively ours, Elite cookware is also PFOA-free and dishwasher safe. To simplify healthy cooking, our special set pairs a 5-qt.-capacity Dutch oven with an dual-function insert. The reversible stainless-steel insert works as a steamer on one side and a poacher on the other. You can also use the Dutch oven on its own. Includes a reversible stainless-steel insert with silicone handles. The perforated insert functions as an efficient steamer on one side, elevating foods above simmering water. Flip the insert over to create a lower cooking surface for poaching foods in simmering liquid. Use the Dutch oven without the insert for simmering, braising or cooking pot roasts. Premium hard-anodized aluminum ensures excellent heat conduction and uniform cooking. Triple-layer nonstick surface is durable enough to withstand metal whisks, spoons and spatulas. Textured Sear nonstick interior seals in flavor when browning or searing foods and is PFOA-free. Polished stainless-steel handles are riveted. Ergonomically shaped handles offer a secure grip and comfortable lifting. Low-profile tempered-glass lid lets you view contents during cooking. Dishwasher safe.
