Do all double boil sets have the unner (upper) pan with a big groove in the side? I just sent one back from Amazon that had this giant V-shape recess in the side. What a nightmare to clean

Maybe they're all this way, but I'd be shocked. Any thoughts?

I've always just cobbled one together out of other bowls/saucepans.

Some feedback: This unit arrived today. Seems OK. The lower pot has a somewhat heavy bottom, and seems solid. The upper pot is quite lightweight, and small. Maybe 1 quart. I was thinking this was a 2 quart. For $19 I'll keep it.

a bump is the usual way of hanging the inner pot on the outer one.  You can make the inner pot convex, like a mixing bowl, but you get less capacity in it for the same sized outer pot.  I've never found them hard to clean; annoying to get everything out of, yes, but not hard to clean.
