When it comes to holiday cooking, I tend to spend a lot of time in the kitchen – whether I’m baking peppermint cupcakes for teachers and neighbors, or creating a lavish meal for a sit-down family dinner. So it’s important that I have the right tools and cookware on hand. But often, the specialty pieces I need are not included in a typical set of cookware. That’s why Calphalon created “Your Set by Calphalon,” the first cookware set that can be customized to fit your culinary style. You get to mix and match stainless steel and nonstick cookware, all while immersing yourself in a new online, interactive experience.
Calphalon is heating things up in the kitchen and changing the way we think about cooking and cookware. Some of our members were able to get a sneak peek and talk about their experiences:
Ready to learn more? “Your Set by Calphalon” is an immersive e-commerce website that invites home cooks to choose pieces from both of Calphalon’s best cookware collections, Unison NonstickTM and AccuCoreTM Stainless Steel. True foodies know that to cook a full range of techniques, you really need both types of cookware in your kitchen. The Unison Nonstick line offers two distinct cooking surfaces – Slide Nonstick for effortless food release and Sear Nonstick to seal in flavor. And AccuCore Stainless Steel line is a great choice for searing meats and deglazing to create pan sauces.
After you’re done putting together Your Set, you can post about the inspiration behind your set, share via social media and connect with others, as well as explore inspirational videos that can help you master your cooking techniques.
In honor of the launch, Calphalon is going to host a VYou chat with Chef Michael Symon. SocialMoms members have submitted questions through the Calphalon VYou channelthat he’ll answer with video responses on November 30th. Chef Symon is a wealth of information and can help elevate traditional holiday dishes into something more festive and flavorful. Be sure to check out the Calphalon VYou channel on or after November 30th to learn Michael’s tips and tricks for the holidays. Feel free to submit your own questions through the Calphalon VYou channeltoo!
