Rated 5 out of 5Â by Zebramom Perfect pan for many recipes!
This has already become a favorite pan. Perfect for browning meat, and then large enough to accomodate additional items for a complete recipe. Also, can be placed in the oven. I have used Le Creuset pans for years, but they are very heavy, so I find I turn to this 5 quart Calphalon first these days for most recipes.. The double handles make the pan attractive enough to put on a buffet table.

I have been recently updating my kitchen and that includes getting new pots and pans. I have to honestly say I LOVE my Dutch Oven! I cook A LOT! So I get worried that my pans won't hold up. This holds up well and does the job! Calphalon's products are the best. They look so stylish too! Best of all, they are SO easy to clean! I did receive this Dutch Oven free to try out and give my honest opinion on. I would buy it if I had to. It is really great!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Q-cumber Great quality but handles do not stay cool
We recently received the 11-piece Contemporary Nonstick set for our wedding. We liked it so much that we decided to get the 5 quart Saucier to complete it. It looks and works great - the nonstick surface is by far the best we've used. However, the one drawback that I've noticed is that the handles (on this pot as well as on some of the other pieces from the 11 piece set) do not stay quite as cool as it describes and not as cool as I'd like as I still have to use potholders to move it off of the stove top. I noticed that the Simply Calphalon line has a different type of handle that in my experience tends to stay cooler better. The handles on the Contemporary set look nicer but maybe this is something that Calphalon can improve on this line going forward.
