Am in the process of replacing an old Calphalon set and decided on All-Clad, d5 Brushed Stainless Steel. Wonderful cookware and easy to keep clean and shiny with Barkeepers Friend. Do not use Scotch-Brite pads as will leave scratches! The loop handle is necessary because of the weight of this pan and well worth the extra dollars.

Review 2 for All-Clad d5 Brushed Stainless Steel Saucepan with Helper Handle
All-Clad d5 Saucepan is Superior
PostedJanuary 6, 2014
My Cooking Level:Advanced
After using Calphalon, Cuisinart, and Le Creuset saucepans, I was ready to upgrade to one that not only had a high rating, but was easy to clean. I received the 3 quart d5 saucepan for Christmas and I love it. The heat distribution is great and I love the helper handle, especially since it is a bit on the heavy side (and a little arthritis has set in). I am confident that I will enjoy this saucepan for many years to come.
