I bought this & the 12 piece pots & Pans set. I have everything Anolon now. I also recommend the 4.5qt stockpot, 14" skillet, 10 qt stockpot as a starter set. The cooking took are great with this, matches perfect. The lids mix & match too...you won't need any extra.
The saucepan is solid and attractive. I chose stainless steel and the contoured shape to match my other pans which it does. The reason for the 4 stars is that to my surprise, the pan only has 1 pour spout. (My two other pans have 2 - one on each side). If you are holding the pan by the handle in front of you the pour spout is on the LEFT. I am right-handed so it means I hold the pot in my right hand while awkwardly using a spatula in my left hand to scrape down while pouring. I wish this detail had been noted in the description.
