Help! Commercial Calphalon Hard Anodized finish wearing off?

I won't receive it for another couple of days, but I see from email Calphalon sent me that they are replacing my 4 quart classic hard anodized pan with a 5 quart Unison pan. Something ate a small divot and a bunch of pinholes out of the inner surface of the old pan. I am not fond of non-stick cookware and I will probably have to call them once I see the replacement pan. It cost me $12 just to send the old one back to them.

Buy real Parmesan Reggiano and grate or shave it yourself just before using it. I am sure your cheese never comes in a green can. Taste a few extra virgin olive oils until you find one you really like. If you decide to add mustard, use a Dijon. If all else fails, try a few drops of Tabasco.
