Cuisinart Chef's Classic non-stick hard anodized 5-1/2-quart saute pan with helper handle and cover. Cool grip riveted handles for ease of use, durable hard anodized exterior, Quantanium non-stick interior, tempered glass covers seal in flavor, hard anodized, oven-safe construction.
Wide enough to fry food without crowding, but deep enough for braising and simmering, sauté pans are the workhorses of the professional kitchen. They are a versatile addition to the home kitchen too, and this large 5-1/2 pan will sauté a heap of vegetables or fry a large batch of chicken with ease. The thick, hard-anodized aluminum construction conducts heat evenly and efficiently through the sides as well as the base, and a tempered glass lid seals in flavor while keeping the contents visible. The securely riveted stay-cool steel handles are oven-safe to 500 degrees F, so food can be browned on the stovetop then transferred to the oven to finish cooking.
Cuisinart Chef's Classic hard-anodized cookware features an advanced Quantanium nonstick coating, designed for healthy low-fat cooking. The coating is tough enough for use with metal utensils. Even delicate foods like fish can be cooked without sticking, and cleanup is quick and easy. Every pan is constructed from durable 3mm hard-anodized aluminum, providing superb heat transfer without hot spots. This pan should be hand-washed with a mild detergent, and it carries a limited lifetime warranty against defects. --Simon Leake

However, the reason I dropped a star is the handle--you must remember that the handle gets HOT while on the stove top. The skillet I use is a Calaphon that I got as a wedding gift, which has a heavy, thick metal handle that stays cool no matter how long it is on the heat. As a result, I am very much in the habit of using the handle while cooking to manipulate the pan as needed and I do it without thinking. Unfortunately, the other night I instinctively went to do the same with this pan to swirl some butter and burned the palm of my hand. While this is obviously my own fault and not necessarily a flaw of the pan, I do think it is worth noting for those of you who are considering it who may be in the same habit of grabbing for the handle like me. This was not the first time I did it and I know it will not be the last. In fact, I'm about to go looking for some of those silicone handle covers that might save me some burnt fingers in the future.
In sum, this is a nice little pan as an "in-betweener", but you may want to think twice if you are accustomed to cooking with stay-cool handles. While I might still buy it again, I'd probably look first to see if there was a similar pan out there with a handle that does not get so hot during cooking.
The Cooks was a lot heavier than this one, including the lid. The walls were also thicker.
I've used the Cuisinart for a couple of months and seems to be a good performer. It is light, heats up a lot faster than the Cooks and its surface seems better in terms of non-stick and heat distribution. Even without the comparison, I like what it does.
The lid fits well and tight, but not as good as in the Cooks. I suspect the flare on the upper rim of the vessel may need to be reduced a tad.
Finally, even though many of these lidded pots and pans seems to have all metal handles that tend to burn your hands when attempting to remove them, I have not noticed that phenomenon with this one. However, I don't use it to, say, boil water. Nevertheless, its two handles offer adequate space to be grabbed by a oven-mitted hand.
The nonstick properties are quite good even after two months of regular use, and the size is perfect for large curries and similar dishes where constant stirring gets the food all over the stove. It's easy to clean with a bristle brush. No issues with warping, staining or delamination.
I don't like the handle very much as it is almost impossible to carry the pan with one hand. The handle is very thin and the pan rotates. This is not a problem because the pan is too heavy to use with one hand for most people, and a larger handle would make it even heavier. The second handle allows for very stable maneuvering.
