    Best Pot in the Kitchen !, November 18, 2008

    I think Calphalon has missed a bet in attaching the label “chili” to this versatile pot, because it suggests that its best use is limited to making chili. But mine is well-loved and used almost daily for cooking virtually everything — chili, yes, but also soup, sauteed fresh veggies, simmer-all-day pasta sauce, pot roast, ETC. I also use it when I need a high-sided skillet. The heating is very even, making it a lovely choice for carmelizing onions and other vegetables, as well as meat. I love this pot so much that I have given a number of them as gifts.

    Calphalon calls another pan, sort of a flat-bottomed wok, its “everyday pan.” I have that one, too, but it has drifted to the bottom of the stack because I DON’T use it everyday. They should have applied that label to this pot instead instead of the “chili” label.

    Replacement for beloved 8785 pot, April 2, 2009

    After years of everyday use, I wore out my Calphalon 8785 pot – despite my best efforts, the interior became scratched, and the exterior lost its anodized look. I’ll keep it for backup, but it is officially retired.

    I prefer the steel lid of the old pot because the handle is part of the lid; the new pot affixes the handle to the glass lid with big rivets. Structurally sound, no doubt, but a weak spot.

    I don’t see any real benefit to a glass lid; I don’t watch the food cook, and if I do, I’m busy stirring a roux or sautéing, so the lid is off. Not a selling point for me.

    Functionally, the pots are similar. The non-stick surface releases foods, but I cannot use metal utensils to stir or scrape. I use olive wood utensils out of habit, but the other members of my family are not always so conscientious.

    The price is right, and this is a fine product. I have no idea why it is labeled “chili pot” – it is too small for chili made in my kitchen.

    I look forward to another decade of daily use with my new Calphalon pan.
