This is a beautiful gleaming piece of cookware with a see-through glass lid and well insulated handle. It feels pretty solid too. It replaced an old aluminium Teflon saucepan which had flaked off chunks of its non-stick coating exposing potentially harmful aluminium. I didn't want another non-stick aluminium pan as there's been some controversy over the years as to whether this sort of cookware is really safe. Stainless steel pans are acknowledged to be much safer health wise. They are also known to last many years longer than aluminium ones if looked after.
I bought this specifically to boil or steam vegetables and make soups. But you can equally scramble or fry eggs or steak in this as well. I did find that the pan was a little slower to heat up than my old aluminium one to bring my vegetables to the boil. But once there the pan retains heat for longer, so I could turn off my electric hob for at least 5 minutes of cooking. Washing up is quick and simple. Overall a decent quality saucepan.
