Calphalon is a brand of cookware and cutlery products owned by Newell Rubbermaid. Calphalon produces non-stick coated cookware similar to Teflon and stick-resistant surfaces made of hard-anodized aluminium. Calphalon pans feature either an aluminum core, which provides fast, even heating, or a stamp-forged aluminum disk to provide the additional heat dispersion.

There are four major lines of cookware currently in production
*Calphalon One
*Everyday (Tri-Ply/Nonstick)
*the low-end Calphalon variant Kitchen Essentials.

Infused anodization is a patented process by which Calphalon places polymers of nonstick between the pores of the cooking and exterior surfaces. This results in a semi-nonstick surface which has heat and scratch resistance. It's possible to use metal utensils on Calphalon One Infused Anodized without damaging the cooking surface. As of 2007, Calphalon is the only company which uses the infused anodized process.

Calphalon cookware is not compatible with magnetic induction stovetops. The only exception is the Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick-IH line of cookware sold in Australia and Japan.

Calphalon used to produce several other lines of cookware. In the 1990's, it's core product was traditional Calphalon, which looks similar to Calphalon One, but was made of a stick-resistent anodized aluminum. This line has been discontined and replaces with Calphalon One. The former line had different fitting lids and handles that would get very hot (Calphalon sold suede handle sleeves for the long handles). They also produced "Calphalon Professional Non-Stick" and "Calphalon Contemporary Non-Stick". The "Professional" non-stick was more costly, but provided better quality. Both of these lines have also been discontinued.

There are four lines of cutlery in production:
*Katana, a set featuring layered Japanese steel and a number of Japanese knife designs including the multipurpose santoku and the nakiri, a vegetable slicer

There are nine Calphalon outlet stores: two in Texas, two in Florida, and one each in Massachusetts, California, Maine, Washington state, and Pennsylvania (at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets).
