I made a slope map, and I want to make a polygon feature of just the areas that are equal to or over a set slope. If I use raster calculator it will give me a raster with two cell types correct? Those that fit my requirement and those that don't. Is there a way to then delete the polygons of the areas I don't need, the ones that are shallower in slope, or is there a better method for this?

That was just the start I needed thank you, I ended up using Raster Calculator since using the Reclassify tool I either couldn't or couldn't figure out how to select for a greater than/equal to expression. With Raster Calc I could. Then edited the attribute table to delete all my null values and used Raster to Polygon like you suggested. That brought back null values, so had to select by attribute again to delete those as well.
If I could ask a followup, what would be the best way to determine how much of my new polygon areas ... I made a rotated fishnet grid with a whole lot of fiddling, and I want to generate a table that will tell me how much of my new high slope areas are in each grid section. There must be a tool to do this...probably more than one. Would appreciate any help.
