Functional as well as beautiful, this 2-quart saucepan comes with a double boiler insert and lid--a great choice for making candy and delicate desserts. Made of heavy 18/10 stainless steel polished to a mirror finish, the pan has an aluminum core in its base to spread heat quickly and evenly. The core is completely clad in stainless steel so, like the rest of the pan, the bottom resists corrosion and discoloring and cleans up easily. Thick rolled rims add durability and make it possible to pour from the pan without dripping. The handle is oven safe to 350 degrees F and stays cool on the stovetop. The pan is dishwasher-safe and comes with a lifetime warranty against defects.

Good but Small, By Iolanthe

This is a very serviceable saucepan/double boiler but the 'two quart' size of the saucepan is a little misleading since the double boiler insert is not two quarts. I wanted a double boiler in which to make my mother's chicken a la king recipe. It is critical to use a double boiler so that that the milk and cream don't boil or burn. This Farberware pot worked perfectly except for the fact that you can't make enough in it to serve more than two people. It simply does not have the capacity to make enough for a family.
Classic, By Debra

I had been looking, for some time, for a double-boiler to make German rice like my Aunt does. This was a recipe from my grandmother who passed away before I was born. I was very pleased with how easy this was to work with. I really appreciate the classic look and feel of this cookware. It has a good weight and is very easy to clean. Faberware has been around for a long time and I think they really got it right again.I looked at all your site had to offer and read other reviews also. I want to thank the others that liked this double-boiler...I know I made the right decision with their input.

This set has come in handy many times in the kitchen. The pots can be used together or separately as a double boiler, although the bottom on the smaller one is not very thick. They are good for making sauces but if you make large quantities, you should get a larger double boiler.
