Size Name: Roaster with V-Rack
I purchased this pan to tackle a prime rib roast for Christmas dinner. The pan itself is very heavy, solid and distrubutes the heat well. One thing I do not like about other roasting pans that I have purchased is sometimes the pan juices seem to burn in the oven which results in no "pan goodness" to make gravy with. I have used this pan multiple times and never had that issue- the bits and pieces will brown, but do not get a burned flavor. I attribute this to the construction of the pan and the heaviness of the weight. I would give the pan a solid 5 stars, but the rack that comes with this pan immediately started peeling and rusting even though I ran it in the dishwasher and promptly removed it. So what is a girl to do?

I bought the William Bounds silicon roasting rack (from Amazon) and now use this with my pan. I could have purchased a replacement rack for $19 or paid shipping and handling to get a replacement rack through the warranty, but I have been very impressed with the William Bounds rack and it fits perfectly in the pan. Clean up is a snap- both pieces go right in the dishwasher and come out looking as if I just pulled them out of the box for the first time. Plus, the WB rack has a slightly smaller grid so even on the coldest of days I can have familiy over (about 20 people) and still serve roasted chicken breasts with baked potatoes and salad in a snap.

Size Name: 8-quart Dutch Oven
This pot measures about 12.25" inches across the top, and about 4.6" inches tall.

The big pot that comes with most cookware sets is only about 5 or 6 quarts, anything bigger and you are usually looking at stockpots (I already have them). I wanted something bigger, but without the tall sides. I didn't want the heavy weight of a cast iron dutch oven. I didn't want nonstick, because no matter how good it is, it always wears out eventually. I didn't want aluminum, because it will pit with certain foods. I also wanted a pot that I could use on the stove, as well as in the oven.

This Calphalon Contemporary Stainless 8-Quart Dutch Oven fit my needs perfectly. It is fully tri-ply stainless steel (not just the bottom). It is dishwasher, oven, and broiler safe (up to 500°F, although I believe the lid is only safe up to 450°F). It will work with any stove top, including induction. It comes with a lifetime warranty. It cooks great, and cleans up nice (use a little "Bar Keepers Friend" to keep your stainless steel shiny and new looking).

The only negative is; the lip is not beveled, which can cause liquid to run down the side when pouring.

The price is very reasonable considering it'll last you a lifetime (my mom has some try-ply stainless steel pots that are over 50 years old). The only other pots that I found that compared in size and quality to this one, were more than twice the price. So I'm very glad I found this one.

All-in-all, it's a very versatile pot (you can cook small things in a big pot...but you can't cook big things in a small pot).

Size Name: Roaster with V-Rack
I researched many roaster pans before I settled on this and am I glad I did. It offers a truly stovetop worthy construction, no bending or warping, a great v rack, and superb heat distribution. The handles are comfortable and the pan fits perfectly in the oven. Compared to the AllClad, it is less expensive and better performance. A well thought out pan.

Size Name: Roaster with V-Rack Verified Purchase
This pan is just the right size and weight for large roasts and turkeys. The clean up was easy and although it is dishwasher safe, per the use and care guide, I didn't find it necessary. I cook rib roasts using very high heat for 15 - 20 minutes depending on the number of ribs and then turn off the heat and let it set in the oven for a couple hours. The key to this working is even heat distribution and even loss of heat as the oven cools. It worked like a dream, no surprises. I have other Calphalon pots and pans and have been a fan for years - this is no exception - excellent!

Size Name: 2-quart Chef's Pan
First of all, in case you're concerned, let me say that the quality of Calphalon's stainless cookware has greatly improved as they have recently made the switch from not-so-good impact-bonded stainless bottom (Simply Stainless) to a tri-ply construction that's on par with All-Clad.

As a result, this pan offers very good heat retention and distribution (i.e. no hot spots), and clean-up is a breeze. Since I got this pan, I have been using it for every thing from small batches of soup, cheese sauce for mac'n'cheese, spinach filling for spanakopita... And with that rounded bottom, I cannot wait to make risotto!

Also, the glass lid fits very nicely and makes it easy to watch what's going on inside your pan.

This is not just a great value for the price -it's a great pan, which just happens to have an unbeatable price.

Size Name: Roaster with V-Rack Verified Purchase
For years, I'd used cooking bags for turkeys and large roasts in my cheap, $10 roasting pan. Then I took a cooking class and learned how to make pan gravy from the drippings. Trouble is, you can't do that with a $10 pan. So I bit the bullet, did my homework, shopped for a great deal and bought this one for about $100. And we LOVE it! Rack is non-stick and is a breeze to clean. Pan is NOT non-stick, but deglazing it with wine when I make the pan gravy takes off all the major stuff and the rest comes clean with dish soap and a sponge. (I didn't want a non-stick pan, as I expect this thing to last forever, and non-stick surfaces wear out.) The only catch with this pan is it's big, so it holds and cooks a large turkey perfectly, but my mire poix tends to burn around the edges when cooking a chicken or a small roast. I ended up buying a second, smaller roasting pan similar to this, but the little one isn't nearly as nice as this one and it cost just as much. I wish Calphalon made a 9x13 size. But if you're looking for the perfect roasting pan for large items, this is the best!
