Calphalon Contemporary Shallow Saucepan The "Contemporary" line of cookware from Calphalon certainly draws attention for its unique shaped saucepans, such as this shallow model saucepan and lid combo.

The pan has a 2 1/2-quart capacity and a shape that gracefully curves outward rather than sticking to conventional saucepan rules of verticality. In fact, the pan's capacity is a bit more than that due to the shape. This saucepan promises to make cooking and stirring a greater boon to the cook, as the shape facilitates the process.

Constructed of hard-anodized aluminum for strength and durability, this pan's interior is coated with a nonstick finish that is heat resistant to 450 degrees. That can be real handy for keeping a potful of food hot in the oven, or cooking a small pot roast. The stainless steel handle also has a novel shape, meant to help stay cool while cooking.

The saucepan comes with a domed glass lid, detailed in matching stainless steel. The domed shape is not just for looks; it assists steam that is generated while cooking to drip back down into the pot. Glass is advertised as ideal for keeping an eye on cooking, although in reality the glass is too fogged up to see inside while on the stove most of the time. The light weight and useful features of this saucepan will make it a very popular addition to many kitchen arsenals. As with all Calphalon cookware, this pan carries a lifetime warranty against defects.
