Inner diameter at the top - 8in; depth - 4 in. Tapers slightly towards the bottom.

What it fits: [From the box] fits Calphalon Professional Hard-Anodized, Calphalon Commercial Nonstick and Calphalon Professional Nonstick; fits 2.5,3.5 and 4.5 qt. sauce pans & sauce pots

I found it also fits 2.5 and 4.5 qt. pots from Calphalon Tri-Ply set Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless-Steel 13-Piece Cookware Set.

It is a bit on a smaller side. Large lobster will not fit whole, you'd have to break it up.

Very nice steamer - I use it a lot for vegetables like asparagus. One thing I was worried about was whether it would fit in my pots properly, but the graduated ridges work fine with two of my pots. The fact that this one comes with a glass top make it worth the extra money. The only negative is that the handles can get hot, so be careful.

I searched online for days, as well as called Calphalon in an attempt to find a reasonably priced and sized steamer from my recently purchased Calphalon Contemporary Stainless 13 piece set. Everything I read and heard directly from Calphalon indicated that I was out of luck. As it happened, I was in a Bed Bath & Beyond looking for something else, when I decided to take a detour into the cookware area to see what I could find. They had this steamer for a higher price, and also happened to sell the 13 piece cookware set I had purchased. So, I grabbed the steamer and took it over to the cookware on display. Lo and behold, it fits perfectly on the 1.5qt sauce pan. So, I came home, and ordered it from Amazon.

The bottom of the steamer is graduated, and the smallest step fits exactly right. No wobble. It does not match exactly. The lid and steamer handles do not match the Contemporary line, and the steamer is a polished single wall stainless - as opposed to the Contemporary being a brushed stainless. But I care less about the form than about the function. Because the steamer rests in the pot at its smallest point, it does appear a little odd on the pot, since it is wider. I added pictures to illustrate my point. For those with the same 13 piece Contemporary Stainless set, the steamer appears as though it should fit the 2.5qt Sauce Pan, but it sits just a little too low and loosely, and tends to wobble. Not a good fit. It looks better on the 2.5qt because they are a similar diameter, but it just doesn't quite work.

Regarding the steamer itself, it is well made. It is a stainless steamer with a glass lid that fits very snugly. It is of sturdy and fairly heavy grade steel, and I don't see any reason to believe it will not last a long time.

If you have been looking for something to use with your Calphalon Contemporary Stainless as I was, you will find this to be a good fit and I recommend it.

Unfortunately, despite this being a "universal" calphalon steamer, it does not fit their newest line - the "Unison" nonstick cookware set(Calphalon Unison Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set). Perhaps buying in store it lists on the box all the sets it does fit, but I did not see the info before registering for it online. The same applies to the double boiler. Just a head's up! Overall, though, the quality seems good, I wish it would fit!

Great product. I use this all year for steamed veggies, holds 6 ears of corn, or for steamed clams. Fits almost any of my pans, but I usually use it with the 2 or 3 qt saucepot.

Quality and materials of this are premium - like the entire Calphalon line used to be before the company was sold and the new owner diluted the Calphalon brand with cheaper product lines that were made to be sold in big box discount stores. The steamer itself is a heavy stainless steel and features a tight fitting glass lid. The steamer is pretty deep and holds a lot. Easy to clean, just toss it in the dishwasher. This steamer fits perfectly on my 2.5 3.5, and 4.5 quart original Calphalon commercial hard anodized pans.

The Calphalon steamer insert and lid are well-made, but the unit doesn't fit well in the Calphalon Contemporary Stainless cookware set. I think it was made for the Tri-ply series, but Amazon advertised it as part of the Contemporary series. It works well enough, I guess, but I do wish it fit the pan more firmly.

I've had it for 8 months now and love it. The bottom can be a little annoying to clean because of the different size bases but I can use it on all of my smaller pots.
