Rated 1 out of 5Â by chitownsara This is NOT dishwasher safe!
We received the set of this for our wedding. Even though the description says this can be placed in the dishwasher, we had been very careful to handwash the pots. Unfortunately my mother in law put this item in the dishwasher. Now it is completely RUINED. The coating on the outside disappeared and it's now a light grey color. I'll try to get this replaced. Aside from being ruined in the dishwasher, the outside scratches easily. Way too high maintenance for me!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Shelly Good Sized Sauce Pan
This is for the one not dishwasher safe. I've had the pan about 2 years. This pan heats evenly and is a good size for mac & cheese, spaghetti, or reheating soup for the family. I also use it for homemade pudding. Works great. Only minor issue is the non-stick coating seemed to rub off in some areas, even using plastic and silicone utensils. It isn't flaking though, and nothing sticks to it. Maybe they made it sturdier with the new coating that's dishwasher safe.

I have had this beautiful little pan for over three years and use it daily. It is just the right size for preparing side dishes. Although I have been careful using only wooden spoons the non-stick coating is starting to come off. This is a big disappointment as I had hoped for many, many years of use. When I replace this set of Calphalon I will go for the stainless rather than the non-stick.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Timothy S. Nice mid-sized pan...great Calphalon quality
For some reason, the 'non-shallow' suace pans are quite a bit more expensive than the shallow pans are... In any case this pan has a heavy bottom, great finish, top quality pan, plus the clear glass lid allows you to keep an eye on what's cooking!
