  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this pan! This is the most versatile pan you'll have in your collection --- I have almost every calphalon piece, as well as All-Clad, and I reach for this pan now more than any other. It's a skillet, a saute pan, a simmering pan! It's a good size (unless you're cooking for one!) - easy easy to clean - and of course the glass lid makes it easy to watch ingredients if you need to without uncovering and losing your heat or moisture. It's also easy to store in the cabinet because it doesn't have a very long handle so many others have. And it's not so heavy that you can't pick it up even when it has dinner in it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Soup Pot Ever I bought the 8qt Dutch oven last year on sale..I may have used a $10 WS gift card as well, so it was quite economical. And I cannot make soup in any other pot now. The size is perfect, at least when I make soup. I can sauté the base veggies then add the rest & simmer away. This pot has plenty of room and the sides aren't so tall that I can't keep an eye on things. And clean up is a breeze. Buy it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge pot for family favorites I have the 8 qt size and made a large pot of soup on the first day I had the pan. Sautéing the veggies worked great as well as the long slow simmer. It's a great weight and size. Will be a favorite "go to" pot.
