Calphalon products are manufactured in Perrysburg Township, Wood County, Ohio. There is also a Calphalon distribution center near Bowling Green, Ohio. Calphalon is owned by the Newell Rubbermaid Incorporated, which is based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Calphalon is mostly known for the anodized aluminum non-stick surface of their cookware. The non-stick surface of Calphalon products is less likely to be damaged with metal utensils or have corrosion than other non-stick products that are coated with Teflon, another non-stick surface. Recently, Calphalon has come out with a line of cookware that is dishwasher safe. They also introduced their ReNew program, which allows consumers to recycle old cookware when they buy certain Calphalon products.
