Personally, I'm not a fan of pans with dark interiors. It's difficult to tell whether the food is getting too dark, i.e., starting to burn. And I prefer stainless steel to nonstick, except for one skillet that I use for eggs and crepes.

What do you intend to use it for? 1.5 quarts is kind of small.

I also use cast iron or stainless and non-stick only for eggs and crepes.

I use a 1 1/2 qt. pot to make rice for 4 people and other small amounts of pasta etc..

I have a few teflon pans and sometimes use them of eggs and always for omelets. However, I cook a complete breakfast in my CI skillet. Sausages and hash browns go in together then are plated. Then two eggs go in for over easy frying. They slide right into the plate.

A pan that size does have its uses. Depending on what else one has, it may not be as versatile as a larger one.

I wasn't thinking about my cast iron as being a dark pan, although of course, it is I don't usually make pan sauces in those, though.

I'm not sure what I'll be using it for other than making rice and boiling vegetables. I cook for just myself and sometimes a guest. I was thinking of getting this one over the all stainless because it's so affordable at $19.

Andy, do you have any nonstick saucepans? If so which ones?

ISO sauce pan with glass lid

No I don't. I see little need for nonstick saucepans.

Even though it says its a 1 1/2 qt. I measured barely 1 qt not 1 1/2 qt as the website claims.

Wow thanks for pointing that out. Maybe there's a better alternative. I didn't want to spend $39 for the all stainless saucepan.
