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

UPDATE 12/23/2015: I was seriously mislead by their calling this item "classic", which suggests that it's like the original, high quality Farberware. It is not. Not only is the insert entirely different from the original (smaller, flimsier), but the saucepan is as well. Original (i.e., classic) Farberware is aluminum clad. Heat distribution is even. This saucepan, on the other hand, has a "thick aluminum core surrounded by stainless steel for rapid, even heating." The bottom of the pan states "durable stainless steel impact bonded even heat distribution." You can see that it's a blob of nicely flattened metal on the bottom, as opposed to the aluminum bottom coating of the original Farberware. From steaming rice to boiling noodles, everything sticks to the same spot. I'm yanking a star. If they removed the words "classic" and "two quart," I would give this three stars and blame myself for not reading the fine print more carefully. IMO, those words make this a bait-and-switch.
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.
