Calphalon. This is more of a tip than a trick. I mentioned it on C.R.A.F.T. facebook back when it happened because I was so impressed with their customer service. Basically, if anything goes wrong with your Calphalon pan, just fill out the online form, pay to send it back and they will send you a brand new pan. (more on the Calphalon warranty info) Pretty awesome. Non stick wearing away is worthy of sending it back.
Any good tricks in your neck of the woods? Do own Calphalon pans? Do you need a hair band with you at all times?
