The Calphalon Classic Stainless Steel 5-qt. Dutch Oven is built to last with time saving features. It has etched fill lines that make measuring easy and a cover with straining holes that line up with pour spouts to drain liquids so you don't have to use a separate colander. The pan is made from brushed stainless steel with an impact-bonded aluminum base for fast, even heating, and is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. Dutch ovens are the perfect stovetop-to-oven pans, ideal for braising comfort foods such as pot roasts or making casseroles and stews. Use the Calphalon Dutch oven to sear meat on the stovetop, then cover and place in the oven to slowly finish cooking for moist and delicious results.
