  • Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Saucepan I love this saucepan. Never had a shallow one before and find it so easy to use. I use to heat up soups and cook pasta. Perfect for cooking for 2. I only gave 4 stars because I am concerned that it will scratch like another Calaphon non-stick I purchased a year ago. Did not hold up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Pan Great pan even though I've only used it twice. It cooled my sides perfectly and clean was a breeze.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go To Pot I have used this Calphalon pot since it originally came out about 10 years ago at least 5x a week. I hand wash it and it is still in near perfect condition. I purchased a second one at WS because it is so useful for any type of cooking, especially for 1-2 people... and the pots actually fit next to each other on the stove top. Thank you WS,..your sale price was the same I paid in 2006 (I still have the box). Love it!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect Wanna -Be I've bought two of these, wore off the non-stick by doing stir-fry and caramelizing onions. The surface doesn't like high heat. And the thin handle is most uncomfortable when the pot is full. In fact, the size and shape are perfect, just exactly what i want, but won't buy again. You might notice there are no non-stick alternatives and there weren't when i bought the first and second time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go To Pot This is my 2nd Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick Saucepan, 21/2 qt. that I have purchased. My 1st pot was about 10 years old and was beginning to show ware. I like the size of the pot and I use it for almost everything, cooking sauces, vegetables, soups, etc. I will buy another pot when this one gets worn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calphalon Contemp. 2-1/2 qt. Shallow Pan Love this pan. It is my absolute favorite ever. Its just deep enough but not too deep. Cooks evenly. Cleans up in a flash. Use it almost every day.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The "Go To" Pan for Green Beans The pan is great. Replaced one the same size of a different brand of very good quality we had purchased years ago. Would have given it 5 stars if it had the pour spouts on both sides and the additional handle that we have on a "Simply Calphalon" pan purchased elsewhere a couple of years ago. Quality ranks very high, but so does ease of use!
