I was going back and forth if I should get this pan or the 8 qt. RR pasta pan. I'm glad I got this one, although I may still get the other one. The price on overstock was one of the best I found, and I did lots of looking both in stores and online. I ordered it on Sunday night and got it the following Wednesday afternoon. I've only used it 2x so far, but it worked great both times. The ends do cook a wee bit slower than the stuff in the middle, but not that it's a problem. The inside cleaned up great. My only problem is that after using it only 2 x, the outside bottom of the pan has marks on it now that I can't get off. I the marks must have come off of my burner somehow, but I thought the burner was clean. That's the only reason I gave it a 4 star. My sister has had this same pan for 3 years, ,and she loves it too. I would still buy it again, and like I said before, I may still go ahead and buy the 8 qt. pan too.
