Some of our favorite meals are those one-pan wonders that cook to perfection on the stovetop and feed an entire family or add to a bountiful feast. Chicken and rice, paella, beef stroganoff - the possibilities are many. This 5-qt. saute pan with lid is not only versatile, but combines the beauty of stainless steel with the superior performance of aluminum. It's the ultimate in Calphalon cookware while still being budget-friendly. Interior and exterior layers of surgical-quality, 18/10 stainless steel surround an inner core of highly conductive, heavy gauge aluminum. The aluminum core spreads heat evenly, and responds to temperature changes quickly. The softly brushed, stainless interior provides clear visual clues when cooking and naturally masks signs of wear. And the mirror-polished exterior provides the brilliant look stainless lovers admire. The ergonomic Cool V handle design provides superior balance and feel, and vents heat away from the long handle, keeping it touchably cool on the stovetop. A domed, tempered glass lid lets you monitor cooking at a glance as it re-circulates moisture and nutrients back into the food.
