It is still safe to use. You should call Calphalon though as their pans carry a lifetime warranty. As long as the teflon came off because of normal ware and tear and not because you scratched it with a metal utensil or something like that then they should replace it free of charge.

Thank you GB. I've been thinking I should do that. I don't have a sales slip, but maybe they'll at least make an adjustment on a new one. I will do as you recommended.
I take very good care of my pots and pans. This happened when I was searing stuffed pork chops. After the pan soaked (overnight) and was washed, there was a burnt piece still sticking to the pan. I used the recommended little plastic scrubbie, but when the burnt part came off, so did some of the coating.

You should not need your sales slip. It does not matter to them where or when you bought it, only that it is their product.

I cooked a few sausage links in my small Calphalon non stick last week. I got distracted and they got a little burnt. I am having a heck of a time getting them clean. I might give them a call as well.

GB, I found their web site yesterday and sent them an email. There is also a phone number listed, which I will use if I don't hear from them pretty soon.
We will see what happens.
Years ago, when I had a gas range, I burnt the wooden handle on one of my Le Crueset sauce pans. I sent it in, and they sent me back a brand new pan.

Well, you won't be able to say anything you cooked in it "sticks to your ribs!"

If you are going to Le Gourmet Chef anyway, they are a Calphalon dealer, so you might just want to drag the peeling pan along with you.

Take a look at frenchcookware.com. They have carbon steel fry pans up to about 20'' dia. for less than $100.00. Carbon steel is what woks and paella pans are commonly made of.
I realize you asked about stainless, but carbon steel might worth a look, especially if you're concerned about giving it a lot of heat

thank you again for the responses, especially fcrosson. i don't have a problem with carbon steel, but i'd like the convenience of stainless. i will check out the site you've mentioned, thanks. functionality is the key here. who cares how nice my pots look, so long as the food comes out right.
