Rated 2 out of 5 by 11111 I was quite disappointed
I own quite a few Calphalon pots and pans and love them immensely. However, this exactly product left me very puzzled.
I tried to make some sauces in the pot and and was really surprised with the aftertaste my cooking had -- after first time I cooked, then after the second, then again after the third. To try it the last time and make sure I cooked the rice I cook practically every day and know the taste completely. The rice had the aftertaste and the unpleasant smell after being cooked in this pot.
The shape and size of the pot are great though. I would love to find the substitution.
The only reason I gave 2 stars is because I decided to stop trying now and send it back. Maybe I am reacting too soon and should try and use the pot up to 10 times - I do not know. Nobody mentions this issue as a potential challenge anywhere so I have no idea how long I am supposed to put up with the bad results before I get my *perfect pot*. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by yfz43 Great soup pan for 3
I really like the shallowness of this pot/pan for soups as the low and wide profile make it excellent for smaller batch stews and soups. I have slowly been replacing my current stock of cookset one by one with Calphalon and I am really happy with this piece. Its wide base makes it excellent for browning/searing meats prior to making soups/stews. It is also a great multipurpose combo pot/pan for pasta dishes, omeletes, etc. I have been using this pot for 6 months and apart from some chips in top received at store where it was bought from, it still looks brand new. Clean up is a breeze with a squirt of dishsoap and wipe with cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kush This shallow pan is one stop solution
I have been using the same pan of my roommate . Hence I was pretty sure where my dollar are going. I love this pan because it help a rookie like me to cook like pro. Most of time whether dry or gray based cooking it work like champ. Cleaning the pan is easier. And steel handle is firm and easy to grip . Even you cook for long handle never get hot to burn your palm. I will say just go for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Megan Best item in my Kitchen
I bought this pan about 6 months ago and love it. I cook almost everything in it as it is perfect size for all my daily cooking. Food doesn't stick and it is so easy to clean. I can cook using very less oil in it, which I like the best. I hope to buy more of Calphalon products very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tacoma Love this saucepan
Bought this to replace a pan I ruined (burnt sugar). I was a little apprehensive about the nonstick coating, but the pan has performed wonderfully. I also like the glass lid--easier to see product and not have to remove lid and lose heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JazzyRose My favorite pan... period!
I purchased the 2.5qt shallow sauce pan when Calphalon first came out with it. It is my favorite pan above all the rest in my cupboard. I often wish I could afford a couple more. The shape and size and the material it's made from are just perfect for double recipes of sauces, puddings, cooking rice, sauteing onions, celery and carrots, hot cereals, cream puff dough...I could go on and on... This is just the best pan. I love the clear glass lid. I can see what's going on in the pan when I get busy fixing a meal. Thanks for a great product

Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent replacement for a chef's pan
I had a Calphalon non-stick chef's pan for many years and it was the one pan I used the most until the non-stick started to peel (caused by someone in my kitchen using sharp utensils). Calphalon no longer produces a non-stick chef's pan so I took a chance on this as a replacement. I'm finding that it works just as well even though it's a bit wider and has less of a curve and I now have a new favorite pan as this is so much more useful for many different dishes, sauces and sautes.
