    I was quite disappointed

    I own quite a few Calphalon pots and pans and love them immensely. However, this exactly product left me very puzzled. I tried to make some sauces in the pot and and was really surprised with the aftertaste my cooking had -- after first time I cooked, then after the second, then again after the third. To try it the last time and make sure I cooked the rice I cook practically every day and know the taste completely. The rice had the aftertaste and the unpleasant smell after being cooked in this pot. The shape and size of the pot are great though. I would love to find the substitution. The only reason I gave 2 stars is because I decided to stop trying now and send it back. Maybe I am reacting too soon and should try and use the pot up to 10 times - I do not know. Nobody mentions this issue as a potential challenge anywhere so I have no idea how long I am supposed to put up with the bad results before I get my *perfect pot*. :)

    Somewhat disappointing

    I bough this pot to replace a similar 4 qt steamer - also Calphalon - that is worn out. Shame on me for not paying attention to the dimensions because this pot is not what I expected. Much more bulky that the other pot and a much bigger steamer insert than I wanted. Knowing ths now I would not have made the purchase. Oh well. Item 2 - they have significantly thinned up the wall thickness. I don't know if this will have an effect on durability, but I suspect it might.

    Great Pot

    Bought this as part of a birthday gift for my avid cook wife. At first she wasn't so sure but after several uses it has become one of her favorite pots. I normally do the dishes as she cooks and I am having to wash this pot 4-5x a week and it remains a breeze to clean and is holding up great. Would buy another.
