Cool

My husband gave me a set of Calphalon saucepans, skillets and a saute pan for Christmas several years ago. It included 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5 quart saucepans. They all have their uses; the 3.5 quart is great for cooking pasta since I learned that you don't have to use a gallon of water for a pound of pasta Just enough water to cover the pasta by a couple of inches is plenty. It has a helper handle, which, um, helps

I received as a gift the following.

I would be lost without that helper handle. Pirate has used it to make lasagna and other dishes. I have the five quart, but you can purchase the 3.5 quart one also. Same pan, less money.

In the pic it looks like the pan has a stainless steel lid. Do you have a version of this with a glass lid?

I wonder if there's a typo somewhere. That's a sauté pan, not a saucepan.

Yeah I thought that might have been a typo or incorrect link because it looked like a sauté pan to me.

If I had to make a choice between a saute' or sauce pan, I'd choose a saute' pan. Many sauces are made in saute' pans. They are actually a straight sided small skillet which is very useful for a multitude of applications, including sauce making.

This one looks and sounds like a kitchen workhorse to me..

That does look like a good compromise, and it's a great price for Calphalon. My go-to pan is my 3.5-quart All-Clad sauté pan, which is wider and shorter than this one - great for searing and pan-frying. But the set of Calphalon pots and pans that DH gave me for Christmas several years ago included three sizes of saucepans, plus I have others.

I actually turned down an invitation to go shopping at the kitchen outlet stores with my mom a couple weeks ago I have pretty much all the kitchen gear I need or want now.

Unfortunately, the cover is not glass.

Same pan with glass cover and helper handle.

I saw this Cuisinart Nonstick Hard Anodized 1 1/2 quart pan at Bed Bath and am thinking of buying it. Does anyone have this pan or would recommend it?
