Beautifully designed and engineered to hold up to the rigors of metal whisk, spoon and spatula use, the Calphalon Williams-Sonoma Elite Nonstick 4.5-qt. Soup Pot gives you the convenience of nonstick, the highest levels of performance, and more versatility than ever before. Now you can cook with the utensils you love − without damaging your non stick cookware. Perfectly proportioned for soup, sauce and stew preparation, soup pots have tall sides that help control evaporation, and heats consistently across the entire pan so foods cook slowly and evenly. Loop handles make it easy to slide in the oven too. Includes tempered glass cover.
