I needed a larger saucepan and loved the idea of a steam basket. It's perfect!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by chrispy11 Nice size
Most of the steamers on the market seem to be really small or huge, this one is just right and if you don't need the steamer insert the pot is a really nice size to use for a lot of things. Lid stays tight and vegetables steam to perfection. Only thing that I don't like is that after the first use, water spots appeared on the steamer insert that I cannot get off. I only hand wash my pots so I can't blame this on the dishwasher. It does not affect performance, but considering the brand it's not something I expected. I would still recommend this product.

I bough this pot to replace a similar 4 qt steamer - also Calphalon - that is worn out. Shame on me for not paying attention to the dimensions because this pot is not what I expected. Much more bulky that the other pot and a much bigger steamer insert than I wanted. Knowing ths now I would not have made the purchase. Oh well. Item 2 - they have significantly thinned up the wall thickness. I don't know if this will have an effect on durability, but I suspect it might.

I bought this several months ago and the size is perfect for a variety of foods and uses. Love being able to steam more than just a few pieces of food at a time!
