Ingredients

  • I had input from several great friends who took their time to help in the search. shopping list
  • On GR, Juels, Tink, Danadooley and Magandab. shopping list
  • Cherylann from EZ cooking shopping list
  • Jessica Harlan –Your Guide to Cooking Equipment- a great lady. shopping list
  • Thanks to all for you time and help. Jessica Harlan a very busy person took time to research pans and sent me several emails, thank you for taking your time to help a stranger. shopping list
  • Magandab sent me a link on GR for a pan at Target and since I pass it often and by chance the day she sent her message on GR, I stopped and checked the pan made by Calphalon. shopping list
  • Very heavy, straight sides so it would be easy to attach a candy thermometer and a glass lid with a dip lip with strainer capability. shopping list
  • What an incredible pan for $60. Why; I am able to put the butter and sugars into the pan and not worry about BURNING! I made toffee again last night and to really test it, set the temp one line about medium on the electric stove. I would stir about every 10 minutes and then do something else; well I was making a cheese cake while the toffee cooked. Every time I checked, it was boiling up, stir and I could feel nothing sticking to the bottom and burning like my old copper bottom Revere Ware steel 3 quart pot. shopping list
  • How great to not have to worry about the mixture burning. This is a 4 quart pot. Just perfect for the amount of butter and sugar to boil and become a food that should be reserved for the gods. shopping list
  • I placed a mat over the pot as it boiled as the cool air was affecting the rise in temperature. The notch in the side for pouring let me leave my bamboo spoon in pot, the thermometer clipped to the side. Once the mix reached 285 I poured the mix into the pan and it was so cool to see how the very last bit slipped right out of the pan. This is a fantastic pot for making toffee and recommend without reservation the purchase of this pot by Calphalon. shopping list
  • Double thanks to magandab for sending me to my perfect candy pan. Eating my toffee makes See's toffee-ettes taste like dirt  shopping list

    Has anyone tried using Analon pans for candy making? I am tempted to try mine, but didn't want to ruin the pan - they are far too expensive to ruin one on candy... However, I think the Calphalon material is quite similar to the materials used in the Analon...so maybe it would be ok? Has anyone tried?

    How great to share a great shopping success with us all. The recipes are often enhanced when made with the right equipment. You almost inspire me to prepare candy... almost. I do not know why it daunts me beyond needing another pot and another thermometer in an overstocked kitchen. Anyway, great information and much appreciated.

    I have never loved cookware until I got my first set of Calphalon pans three years ago. I'll never get anything else!

    magandab ate it and said...
    I was literally just going to write to you to ask how the pan worked for you when I saw this. Yes, it's an amazing pan for $60, or almost any, price! I am so glad you feel the same way. Toffee.... CHARGE!
