    I’ve been using Calphalon cookware for about 20 years. Some of my pieces are pretty worn out and frankly, I was getting a bit tired of always having to wash them by hand.

    I have Professional Nonstick, Commercial Nonstick, Copper Triply, Stainless Triply, One, etc. etc. etc. Overall my pots and pans have served me very well and have taken an enormous amount of abuse. I lived in Mexico for several years and they came with me then and back again. I used to cook for 10-12 people every day, so they got a lot of use.

    I hadn’t been too tempted to retire my old workhorses, especially since the newer Calphalon lines were far from great. I HATED the new ‘commercial’ nonstick that I bought a few months ago. The pans were lighter and flimsy.

    I saw the ads for Unison and was intrigued. Not so thrilled with the prices, but Amazon’s great for comparison shopping.

    I got this little set on Kitchen Kapers for […], a bargain indeed. And 100% dishwasher-safe? YES!!!

    So….Sear and Slide, huh? One of the biggest drawbacks to nonstick cookware is the lack of ‘stickiness’ necessary to achieve a truly great sear on meats and other foods. Does this new Sear stuff work? Last night I made my favorite pot roast recipe in this cute little 5 quart Dutch Oven. It’s just big enough to make a braise for 2-4, a 3 pound chuck roast fit in it just right.

    Did it sear better than my other pots? Marginally. It did sear just fine, but so do my other dutch ovens. I refuse to put out a couple hundred dollars for LC and then have to hire someone to lift the thing off the stove for me. Does it create the classic ‘fond’ so loved by foodies? Nope. But then I’ve never really needed one to make fabulous food, either. It’s a tossup.

    This little oven worked just great on top of the stove and in the oven. The only drawback to the entire line that I can see so far is that the lids do not fit well at all, they slide around too easily, allowing steam to escape and cause a burn hazard, as well as the potential to burn a pot dry. I double sealed the lid with parchment when I used it, but still feel that my braise came out drier than usual.

    I also have the ‘covered omelet’ (strange configuration) and its lid is just as loose. A bit disappointing, but overall, taking into consideration the new ‘rougher’ nonstick surface and the ability to wash it in the dishwasher, this line deserves a solid 4 1/2 stars, as long as you can get them for […] or less.

    I had longed to buy the Calphalon Unison 5-Qt Dutch Oven at BBB, but found the price about $110 cheaper from Kismet on Amazon impossible to resist. This is a great pot that looks nice, heats very evenly and clean-up is a breeze! You can’t go wrong with this one. Just bought another one this morning from J&R Electronics/Amazon for a wedding gift, even lower price than the first one I bought.

    I am enjoying this pan. It is a good size for many uses. It also cleans easily. The tools are very handy and are sturdy.

    I love the Unison line, it is by far the best non stick surface I have ever used. After bad experiences with the Calphalon One line, this product worked surprisingly well. I went out and bought a number of other Unison pieces, this worked so well. This is on the small size, but perfect for a small family.

    I bought this as a gift and couldnt resist keeping it for myself. It is hard to find a good quality non-stick pot, but this fits the bill.
