I bought nuwave 2 induction cook top which love but none of my Calphalon pans were induction ready so needed to replace them. Christmas time Amazon had a sale on Emeril Pro Clad made by Al-Clad $169 set. Bought them and very happy, tri ply aluminum core stainless steal. Now if would have boughg same pans under Al Clad name the price would have been ten times more. What is the big difference since both are made by same manufacturer, only one type stainless steal and aluminum, food grade, to drastically change the price? There are pans! I did buy lot of Calphalon pans made in china over the american ones, quarter the price and worked just fine.

aluminum encapsulated base with bonded base, I never liked these kind of pans that is why I picked these, true aluminum core runs through the pans. my old Calphalon pans were like this.

I have 2 9" Nuwave fry pans with the 9H Duralon; ceramic coating- stronger, more durable than Teflon, well it may not chip or peel off but I have found pancakes stick less in my stainless steel pans both using the same oil.

The nuwave2 was an inexpensive way to try induction and its great. 100x better than gas, million x better than electronic range tops. The nuwave is holding up well and if it out last the 2 year warrant, money well spent $89.
