This is what I found searching the web:
Do not clean Calphalon cookware in a dishwasher. Dishwasher detergents will damage the surface. Dishwasher use will void your Lifetime Warranty.
Hand wash your cookware thoroughly inside and out after every use.
Before you place the pan in water, allow it to cool. Food releases much more easily from a cooled pan. Also, adding cold water to a hot pan can cause grease to spatter and can warp the pan.
Wash with hot, sudsy water and a dishcloth or Scotch-Brite™ pad and a recommended cleanser (see chart). After cleaning, the pan should have an even color tone and matte finish. Dark, shiny, or hazy spots on hard-anodized surfaces mean that some residue remains on the cooking surface.
Wash with hot, sudsy water and a dishcloth. After sautéing or frying, we recommend cleaning nonstick pans with a Dobie® pad and a recommended nonabrasive cleaner (see chart) to remove any food residue.
Stainless steel surfaces
Hand-wash the interior, stainless steel surface of your pan with hot sudsy water and a Dobie® Pad. See chart for other recommended cleansers. Clean the exterior, hard-anodized surface of your pan with a Scotch Brite™ pad.
**TIP** If eggs and other foods begin sticking – even after following preheating and butter test instructions – it’s a sure sign that grease and food residue have built up on the cooking surface. Clean thoroughly, referring to the chart for recommended cleansers.
