I received this item free to test but that will not influence my opinion of this .
I owned a similar pot by Calphalon for the past 13 yrs. yes---13 years & it looks like new. So I was so excited to get another one. Calphalon quality cannot be beat. Durable and logically designed. The glass lid on this pan is amazing. you can drain from either side of the pan because the lid had drain holes on both sides. Brilliant idea for left handed cooks. This pan is tall making it perfect for pasta or potatoes. No boiling over. I just love everything about Calphalon cookware. 3.5qt pans are my favorite size and they are difficult to find. I hate that this pan is no longer available because it a dream come true for me. I have used it for about 10 days and it is my favorite pan. I was hoping to come to this site and buy another one. The 13 yr old one I have didn't come with a lid, but it still had the nice pour spouts. So trust me---take care of your Calphalon pans and they will last. I usually wash by hand, but i have placed it in the dishwasher a few times. I just think it has lasted so long because I hand wash it. Buy Calphon products. They are worth every penny,

I love all Calphalon cookware. The strainer on this pan is the best thing ever. I hope it is also available in a smaller size because it is well worth the extra money to not need to get a colander out every time I make pasta etc....

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNGirl001 Great pot!
This is the perfect size for a family. Can cook a box of pasta all at once... and then easily strain it with the lid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by candypro1 great pan!
I really love this pan for everything. making soups, making candies, browning meat. I will be buying the skillet and 5 quart stock pot as soon as I can justify throwing away my 'old' pans. Nothing sticks to the pan, it washes up nice, both inside and out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Realtor Deb in MN My favorite saucepan!
I've used this 3.5 qt saucepan for 2 weeks now and love the size, ability to drain through the lid and the handle has a nice feel and appearance. This size saucepan is the perfect size for pasta, potatoes or family-sized batch of chili. The 3.5 qt is a nice complement to the 2.5 qt. I highly recommend this sauce pan .... order it soon and enjoy!
