Excellent multi-purpose pan
March 29, 2016
I find I use a large saute pan more than just about any other pan for sauteeing and sweating aromatics and making big skillet meals and stovetop braises, and this pan does a great job handling it all. It's got good weight, a tight-fitting lid, and at six quarts, has enough volume and surface area to do a lot of different things. When making a skillet pasta, the heat is conducted uniformly to simmer across the whole pan, ensuring everything is cooked properly. I haven't used metal utensils with it, but the nonstick releases food and cleans up very well. I'm really enjoying cooking with this pan, and am very happy I bought it.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Durable, Versatile, Design, Quality, Size, Weight

quality not like what it used to be
October 27, 2015
We purchased this saute pan to replace one we had for years. We got the highest end one and were disappointed with the quality. The handle was hollow, not solid like the old one. The pan surface was a smaller diameter even though it was the same size as our old one. The pan weighed 1/2 of what our old one did and the surface was sparkly - seemingly cheap. We sent it back, very disappointed.
Cons: Quality, Size

3 Qt size perfect for eveyday
January 12, 2015
At 3 quarts, this pan is the perfect size for just about all of my sautéing needs. I love the double handles in particular. It's a beautiful piece of Calphalon cookware as are all the pieces in this line.
Not sure how long the interior surface will hold up but having gotten eight pieces all on sale, I'm extremely pleased. Clean up is a breeze with very little effort. I take extra care with my cookware and after hand washing and drying, I spray a fine mist of olive oil in it and lightly wipe before storing. Each piece is stored separately with its lid on - never nested with another.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Versatile, Design, Weight
