If you’re thinking of adding a multipurpose pan to your collection, this one from Calphalon’s commercial nonstick line could just be the one. This gently rounded, generously sized pot with two well-balanced, stay-cool handles, a domed lid, and a durable multilayered nonstick coating is the perfect thing for improvising weeknight ragoûts and braises, for making big batches of creamy polenta or risotto, or for whipping up a quick soup or pasta sauce. It’s ovensafe to 450°F and carries a lifetime guarantee from Calphalon. If you like the shape of the pan but would prefer a stainless interior, keep your eyes open for Calphalon’s newest line—commercial stainless pots and pans—due in stores this winter. The 4-quart commercial nonstick chef’s pan is about $124 from Cooking.comA Cook’s Wares, and many major cookware retailers.
