calphalon 12' skilleti own two of the calphalon 12" non-stick anodized aluminum pans (but not the contemporary which is a different handle shape) and i use them a lot. the non-stick has not flaked off after many years of use and with the usual care for non-stick. they take a little while to heat but are fairly even heating. i got mine for $29.99 as a "special" at bed, bath, and beyond, but the $39.99 is a good, fair price.
i think a better buy is at a local restaurant supply where you can get a heavy NSF approved aluminum excalibur non-stick 12" pan for around $20.00 ... then you can have TWO pans for the price of one.
