This Farberware Classic Series Stainless Steel 2-Quart Covered Saucepan with Double Boiler Insert can pull double duty on the stovetop as a saucepan or double boiler. Farberware has been trusted for over 100 years, and this double boiler continues that tradition for a new generation. A full cap base featuring a thick aluminum core surrounded by stainless steel provides rapid, even heating. Heavy-duty stainless steel is polished to a mirror finish for a classic touch, and the covered saucepan can be used with or without the handy double boiler insert. Choose the double boiler insert to melt chocolate or gently cook vanilla custard. Without the insert, the saucepan and lid great for simmering white rice or heating cream of mushroom soup. The comfortable handles with iconic styling provide a confident grasp, and a self-basting lid helps seal in heat and moisture. It’s also dishwasher safe and oven safe to 350°F. This quality double boiler is a great addition to any Farberware collections cookware set.
Enjoy two convenient cooking options with this versatile Farberware Classic Series Stainless Steel 2-Quart Covered Saucepan with Double Boiler Insert that functions as both a double boiler and saucepan.
You want hollandaise on poached eggs and chocolate sauce on a cake, but to do it right, you'll need a double boiler. Is it worth the grief? Yes, and this convenient midsize outfit reduces the grief by quickly providing what is needed for smooth sauces, while incidentally adding an extra 2-quart pan to a kitchen's repertoire. The pieces are made of highly polished stainless steel, and have phenolic handles that stay cool, are oven safe to 350 degrees, and have metal hanging loops; the large "knob" handle on the lid is also easy to get a hold of in a hurry. The pans are also dishwasher-safe. --Richard Farr

After using a variety of Farberware pots and pans for years, I looked to this brand out of loyalty - but also considered a glass double boiler similar to the one I have successfully used for candy making, puddings, sauces, etc. since the 1980s.
My decision to buy the 2 quart Farberware set came down to price since it was $50.00 less than the glass option I really wanted.
Now that I have worked with this Farberware set for nearly 2 months, I have to say that when melting chocolate, the metal set worked well. I had a little trouble with too-hot water resulting in chocolate-ruining steam seeping upward from the lower pan in my first attempt, but after lowering the heat, I was pleased with the results.
The sharply indented ring mentioned in other reviews did indeed capture the melted chocolate and had to be carefully cleaned with the point of a rubber scraper, but it was really no trouble, and did not affect my candy making in any way.
I was sorry that the upper pan was made from such light material, but unless I aggressively boil water in the lower pan that might push the upper/lighter pan up - allowing steam to escape - I doubt that less substantial weight will adversely affect my culinary efforts.
If money is no object, I would highly recommend the brown glass double boiler - but if this is going to be a basic kitchen tool that is not necessary for professional creations, then the Farberware option is just fine.
Oh, and I would not go with anything smaller than the 2 quart size - it's as small as I can bear to work with when making standard amounts of anything.
The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that the thickness of the metal is not what Farberware used to be; I have a 1.5 quart Farberware pot which I keep even though the handle came off years ago, because it's a wonderful little pot to make rice, heat soups, etc. -- have had it now for at least 30 years. At that time, there were no extra clad bottoms, so the new ones are good for that. However, I'm disappointed at the lightweight quality of the rest of the pot (weight comes from the extra cladding on the bottom). Looks like it will dent easily. Also, I'm partial to metal handles, and apparently Farberware continues to use the phenolic, which are far less durable. However, at less than $30, this is an excellent double boiler and just right size for my cooking. I only doubt it will last as long as my other double boiler did.
I saw somewhere a complaint that the upper pot can't be used as a separate pot. In my experience, I've never seen or had a double boiler top pot that was suitable for separate cooking on the stove. If someone knows of one, I'd like to know of it!
UPDATE 7/22/14: Changed to a 3-star rating. Problem encountered while drying the lower pot, a sharp metal edge of the attached handle where it joins the pot grabbed my kitchen towel and damaged it. I called Amazon, and they immediately sent an exchange -- which I found also (!) had the same problem, although in a slightly different spot. I took out a small hammer and placed a piece of cloth over the spot, lightly hammering it until the point seemed almost eliminated. I'm hoping it is. Now using it, waiting to see if the problem is really gone. What's clear, though, is the quality control on this product isn't at all what I'd expect from Farberware.
No more gunk stuck to the bottom of the pan! Great for rice too.
Since rice, oatmeal, etc. require water as they cook, I generally add boiling water to them before putting in the top pan to speed the process, then check and add more water (or other hot liquid) as needed.
My mom had one and for the life of me, I don't know why I waited so long to get one.
