be very careful if you purchase this product. it's unclear from the cooking.com site which calphalon products this is compatible with, and from the calphalon site, it's not that much clearer. we purchased this and it *does not* fit with the calphalon products we purchased from cooking.com. i'm actually not convinced that this product is compatible with any of the calphalon products that cooking.com stocks, which seems unfortunate and puzzling to me.
This is an excellent double boiler, but contrary to the description, it does not fit the Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized 2-1/2-Quart Shallow Saucepan.
It was impossible from your display to see the inside of the insert. I would have prefered an insert without the ridgeline inside, ie. a completely smooth interior. The insert works fine beyond that issue.

I use the Calphalon Tri-Ply pots and pans and love them above all others. This double boiler insert does not have the same high-quality construction of the Tri-Ply series, but it gets the job done. Handles use only two rivets - which is plenty but breaks from the Tri-Ply style. Metal is thinner than expected - I would appreciated a heavier gauge metal to regulate the temperature better. However, considering it's price, it's a good deal.
Can't answer the optional questions factually. What kind of cook am I? A dam good one. How many people do I usually cook for? Depends, how many are hungry. How often do I cook? Several hour throughout the day and night, thinking, learning, writing, teaching, in the kitchen and at the BBQ? Why not a small comment section for Other.
Most Double Boiler are to big. I've wanted one for years. It's prefect for small projects. I love the idea of it fitting into a pan I'll use all the time. Instead of a large double boiler and pan that is use once or twice a year, take up a lot of room that be best used for something else. Becides it take a lot longer to heat up. Love the size!!!
I haven't had a chance to use the Calphalon double boiler insert yet. It IS a Calphalon product for those that questioned the authenticity and it fits my Calphalon tri-ply 2.5 qt pot perfectly (the deep 2.5 qt pot not the shallow 2.5 qt pot). I hope to use it soon.
Thanks for the fast shipment of this produt.
After reading other's reviews, I did check to make sure I had the pot this insert fits. I do and it works perfectly. I had found and was using a "universal" fit double boiler. That one fit my smallest pans and larger too but would tilt when whisking which caused many stove op spulls. It had a round bottom and could not be set on the counter up right. This ones sits on the counter for adding ingredients and fits the pan properly; no more melted chocolate on the stove.
I have been looking for this type of insert for a long time and am happy to have it to make those recipes that require cooking over a low simmering water that doesn't touch the bottom of my pan. It fits perfectly on the pan I had in mind to use it with.
Bought this to fit my Calphalon pans but it did not. Description said it fit 2.5 qt Calphalon "saucepan," but I tried it in my 2.5 qt Calphalon cooking pots/pans, and it didn't work. Must be designed to fit one specific "saucepan." Disappointing!
I was really disappointed to find out I had to buy a 2 ½ quart saucepan to put this in. I thought it was two pieces. Very deceptive!! I didn’t return it because why pay postage, and the time to send it back. I can go buy a pan to put it in. I am truly not happy – I have purchased a lot of this brand of pan in the past. Jerilyn Rich
I thought several favorite recipes were going to be gone forever when I broke the semi-antique Pyrex double boiler that I'd "inherited" from my mom (in the 70's!). After juggling with floating pans on top of each other, I found this insert. Contrary to some of the reviews, it fits perfectly in my Calphalon saucepan (2.5 qt - #870212), and I love it!
No set of cookware is complete without a double boiler. This double boiler insert fits the Calphalon 21/2 Qt. tri-ply stainless cookpot perfectly. As was pointed out in an earlier review, the groove on the inside of the double boiler top is the one thing between ordinary and perfection. The Calphalon name is not on the insert anywhere. My guess is that it is not commissioned by Calphalon.
According to the description of this item, this should have fit two of my Calphalon pots. It did not. It does not fit tightly--diameter is not right and depth is too much. I would recommend calling customer service to confirm whether this is right for your pot.
