You'll get a lot of use out of the versatile Calphalon 12-in. Stainless Steel Everyday Pan. Its sloping sides resemble a skillet, so you can use this pan for sauteing vegetables, caramelizing onions and making omelets. Its low-profile sides make it great for oven-to-table dishes such as paella, risotto and pasta dishes. Toss you homemade tomato sauce with your penne in this stainless steel pan just before serving. This pan features handles that stay cool even when you cook over a high heat. Because there are two handles, you'll be able to carry the pan easily even when it's full. The tri-ply construction, with an aluminum core housed in two layers of stainless steel, allows the pan to conduct heat well. You'll be able to control the temperature of the pan with a simple adjustment on your stove. Because the pan heats evenly, your food will cook perfectly, with no burned spots and cold spots. This durable pan can be used on any type of stovetop, including gas, electric, induction, ceramic and halogen. You can even use the pan in the oven or under your broiler. Sear your meat on the stovetop and then transfer it to the oven for the remainder of the cooking time. Thanks to its durability, you can use all types of utensils, even metal ones, with the pan. With its dome shape, the lid returns moisture to your food as the steam cools. Run the pan and the lid through the dishwasher for easy cleanup.
