Classically styled with a polished stainless steel exterior and a satin finished interior, the Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 2.5-qt. Shallow Sauce Pan is designed with three layers to ensure even, consistent heating. A heavy-gauge aluminum core surrounded by stainless steel provides excellent heat conduction for browning and searing, while giving you enhanced control of the cooking process. This saucepan is designed with shorter sides and a wider cooking surface than a traditional saucepan, and can be used to prepare sauces, custards, risotto and more. Includes tempered glass cover.
