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 youre 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.

Bonus: the handle stays cool on the stove.
For years all our cookware is has been Calphalon and we know the anodized finish requires a little bit of care – no dishwasher and no harsh cleaners. Even though the pan is NOT non-stick, it will clean easily with soap and hot water.
It still works as well as when I first bought it, although the base got a little warped when I once put it on to heat without any water in.
Sadly I see that there are 443 reviews already for this item, so I guess this one is going to remain forever unloved on page 45 of 45...
This pan was a major disappointment! I purchased this because it was commercial & hard anodized with a major brand name but that didn't change anything. The first time I used it was to boil noodles that were stirred with a plastic utensil and there are now marks and/or tiny scratches on the bottom! I had had it with what has been reduced to throwaway pans with the non-stick surfaces that easily scratch, begin to flake and finally end up in the trash. I can't believe this is what Calphalon is selling as a commercial pan with a suggested retail of $119... though I paid $29.99 it wasn't much for a saucepan with a lid but it's still a major disappointment. It's equivalent to the throwaways from the local box stores.
I can only guess that there was a problem with the anodized surfaces in a lot of pans and that's why the price is so low on Amazon. In any event, if you don't care about marks or scratches then seize the deal and be forewarned. I buy a lot on Amazon and giving something such a low rating is a rarity for me. It has the 2 stars because it's a nice size at 2.5 quarts, pretty rugged and I hoped all those other poor reviews was due to a bad batch and that I wouldn't get one.... and that was a stretch. I haven't used it long enough to determine if the 2 stars is too high so I may be back to reduce that count to 1 star.
The performance of this pan as well as the 7-qt casserole/dutch oven led me to purchase more calphalon hard anodized commercial cookware, all of which is thoroughly enjoyable. With proper care it should last you a good long while. Of course, if you have a lot of cookware, it will last you even longer, as it won't be in rotation every single day. This pan, however, has been living on my stove without much relief. I'm going to go ahead and put it up for a while and use the 3 qt calph hard anodized saucier daily, as it is a wee bit bigger and retails for lower than this one. I figure I'll run the 3-qt into the ground first and give this poor guy a break.
These pans are especially great for sauteeing leafy green vegetables. I'm yet to find a pan that I prefer for spinach and collard greens. These are also fantastic for colcannon, and make a nice, homey presentation of the colcannon from stove to table.
