If you're the proud owner of a large collection of cookware, it's likely you've become reliant on a trusty cast iron skillet or a small yet utilitarian nonstick pan. Cast iron and nonstick skillets, after all, are not only dependable, but also incredibly invaluable in the kitchen: When you're cooking, you're not left worrying whether you'll spend hours cleaning stick residue—plus, a cast iron skillet's seasoning enhances the flavor and texture of anything it touches.

For anyone who's grown bored of tirelessly scrubbing steel pots, it's about time you invested in a set of nonstick skillets. Consider the popular two-piece nonstick set from Calphalon, which up until today had been sold out on Amazon. Now it's finally back in stock and currently on sale for just $45. Constructed out of a hard-anodized aluminum, the 8- and 10-inch skillets are not only durable, but also boast a PFOA-free, two-layer nonstick interior, guaranteeing nothing will stick while you're cooking. The gently sloped sides and flared edges make transferring food to the plate mess free, and the long handles stay cool on the stovetop even while the pan is on the highest heat.

Pull out this skillet to do a number of tasks, including frying, sauteing, searing, and preparing items like frittatas and stir-fries. Like cast iron, the pans can be moved from the stove into an oven up to 450°F. Plus, they're compatible with a number of stovetops, including gas, glass, halogen, and electric.

Nearly 6,000 Amazon shoppers have given these pans a perfect rating, and reviewers say that if you take care of them they "will last for years." Others say the skillets are "so much better than the really cheap ones" and the "best nonstick pans out there."

"I have been using All-Clad stainless steel for the past six to seven months of cooking," one shopper shares. "While they're good, sometimes you just need a nonstick pan to keep your sanity. I considered getting a whole flight of pots and pans, but thought do I really need all that cluttering of my cabinets? No. Two pans is all you need when you've already got pots boiling. These two pans get the job done and are a cinch to clean. The pans wiped clean with a paper towel. Oh, what a relief that is!"

"I have slowly replaced all my cookware with Calphalon and have been very happy," another customer says. "The pan is great for frying/sauteing, and the 2-inch high side helps keep the food in the pan. If you want a great piece of cookware at a great price, this is it!"

Whether you need to replace some dilapidated cookware or merely have been on the hunt for quality nonstick pans, shop the 2-Piece Calphalon Classic Nonstick Frying Pan Set for $45 on Amazon before the sale price disappears.
