I have a commercial series Calphalon dutch oven that I've had for over 25 years. It was only 5 or 6 quart capacity, and while much thicker than this dutch oven, it has seen it's best days past. I bought this Contemporary 8qt and am nothing short of delighted. I was a little concerned that the metal might be too thin, but I made a fond on medium high heat on an electric stove top that was culinary school grade. It heated evenly and my fond was simply perfect. The big test of this dutch oven was not only the fond, but it needed to braise in the oven for 2 hours @ 300 deg F. It performed like a champ. No hot spots, good sealing, and even distribution of heat. I read the review that said it may create hot spots on a gas stove - I can only imagine that happening on a high BTU (commercial grade) stove top. But, hey, your mileage may vary. I'm very happy with this beautiful and functional addition to my cookware.

This pan is not thick like other Calhalon cookware I've used and seen before. If you have a gas stove like I do the thinnest of this pan creates hot spots in the pan, if it was made thicker it would heat evenly thru out the entire pan. This pan may work better on a electric stove, still it is not built like they use to, DO NOT BUY!

Surprisingly Awesome

By blackqtee

Comments about Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel 8 qt. Dutch Oven with Cover:

I had bought this pot with then intention of perfecting braising meat. My first impressions of this pot was it was light for what I had seen that is a typical dutch oven. I cooked a corn beef brisket as my first meal. The pot heated up quickly on the electric stove. The meat seared beautifully. I through everything in made my stock and put meat in. My oven cooks fast and evaporates whatever liquid in my dishes, low heat or not. This cooked my meal great. Low reduction of the fluids. After 3 and a half hours of braising on 325 degrees, the brisket just fell apart. The clean us was awesome. Nothing stuck to the pot. I soaked the top because the glass had become brown. After soaking for five minutes it came clean easily with a dishwashing brush. Look forward to cooking many meals in this.

Comments about Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel 8 qt. Dutch Oven with Cover:

My wife and I bought the full line of Calphalon Contemporary stainless cookware for each other for Christmas this past year (2012), and we absolutely love all of the pieces.  This dutch oven is a great size, and i actually use it quite a bit more than I thought I would.  It cleans up easily, and the finish looks as good as new.  I normally hand wash this piece due to its size, but the others get a mix of handwash and dishwasher, depending on my mood.  They all continue to look great and perform at a very high level.

Great usable size and shape

By BettyZ

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel 8 qt. Dutch Oven with Cover:

Wide base and low sides are great for sautéing vegetables and searing meats before adding sauces or stock. Don't let the 8-qt. size intimidate you; this gets more use than I ever expected. Even heating. It's a solid pan that doesn't feel the least bit flimsy despite its light weight. Easy to handle when pouring out the contents down to the last bit, compared to other Dutch ovens. Pretty on the table, and clean-up is a simple task.

Comments about Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel 8 qt. Dutch Oven with Cover:

I love all my Calphalon. I purchased a set last year. After shopping and comparing products, I was sure that Calphalon was what I wanted. I have not been disappointed. Since last year, I have purchased several more pieces and have been pleased with each purchase! I gave all my "old" pots and pans to my daughter-in-law and use only my Calphalon now.

I have used this dutch oven to make soup and homemade candy and works wonderfully for both. It's big enough so I don't have to worry about spill-overs. I'm very happy with this purchase and am telling all my friends they should get one.

Comments about Calphalon Contemporary Stainless Steel 8 qt. Dutch Oven with Cover:

I need an OVAL pan-this is advertized as oval, but I don't consider it oval. It is slightly curved at 2 ends It seems like a good pan, if it was the right shape
