Pros: durability, weight, vented lid, soft handle, cleanup

Cons: none for me

The Bottom Line:
"So when saw and saucepans fallin' from the trees
Maple syrup's weighing down the bees
Tabasco bleeds from every hand squeezed"
~Paul Heaton


As I slowly replace my cooking pots, I once again fell back on the standby, T-Fal, when I picked up my T-Fal Thermo-Spot 2-quart saucepan.    The two quart size seems to be the one I use the most so I wanted one with variable features and this one delivered.

The pan has two pouring spots, one on either side, which is perfect for sauces.  The addition of a spiffy glass lid is really nice, especially since this one is vented in the top with a small hole plus openings in the pour spout areas to allow steam to escape.  That is of major importance when cooking any sauce that you want steam to leave the pot but if you are cooking something and want to hold the steam inside, you can rotate the lid so the openings do not center over the pouring spouts.

Personally I've not figured out the Thermo-Spot heat indicator but I generally don't use this pan for something that needs preheated anyway.  I do like the soft handle feature which makes it quite comfortable to lift and transfer from the range.

As far as cleanup, it is easy as pie.  The exterior cleans as nicely as the interior and both are dishwasher safe.  Mostly I wash the pan by hand but I do place the lid in the dishwasher.  Either way, no mess and no fuss.

The one thing I do question is the fact it states the pan is oven-safe up to 350 degrees.   With the soft handle, I am hesitant to put this pan in the oven despite their assurances.  Besides, I have a blue million oven safe cooking devices, why risk a beautiful and useful pan?

This one measures 13" x 7" and weighs just under 2 pounds.

thanks,
Susi

This sounds like a perfect saucepan for cooking- I love lids that have perforation so that you can drain pastas and sauces. Great review, Susi, thanks for sharing :)
