Details: This straight-sided 2-1/2-quart pan can be used for sauces and, covered with its flat lid, for stews and casseroles. Shallow (3 inches) in relation to its capacity and diameter (8-3/8 inches), this pan, unlike conventionally proportioned saucepans, exposes lots of surface and is therefore ideal for reducing sauces or even stocks and broths. Though it's not nonstick, like some Calphalon cookware, the matte-finish pan is anodized for stick-resistance as well as hardness. Metal utensils won't harm the surface. The contoured, textured handle is cast stainless steel and resists heating on the stovetop; it's also triple-riveted for durability and balance. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, the pan cooks without hot spots or warping and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack From the Manufacturer Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized Cookware offers you the same superior performance and durability as our original, Professional Hard-Anodized series, plus the comfort and convenience of our patented Cool V handle. Ergonomically designed for better balance and maneuverability, the Cool V handle stays comfortably cool during stove-top cooking. Whether you’re preparing a delicate Bearnaise or a meaty marinara, Calphalon sauce pans are designed for maximum performance. Heavy gauge aluminum construction guarantees even, efficient heating. The cast stainless steel Cool V handle absorbs heat more slowly than cast iron handles, so it stays cooler longer on the burner. Plus, the rounded bottom perimeter helps you scrape every spot inside the pan so no tasty spoonful goes to waste.
