I ordered this product for several reasons. I thought the price was good for a calphalon pan. I have an entire calphalon set including their kettle. I have used them for over twenty years with the exception of their large roasting pan which I bought about 5 yrs. ago. They have held up remarkably well, but I have never put them in the dishwasher; only hand washed. The only pot that is worn is the coating on the inside of the bottom of my medium size sauce pan. I figured your offer would help replace mine. This pot is much lighter in weight and does not seem as substantial a pan as my old existing one. I'm sure it will work fine,and I do like the glass lid.Only time will tell.
