List price is $168 and shipping is free, so this is quite a deal. Highly-rated though some reviews said it is not as thick as some of Calphalon's other hard-anodized pans. I am mulling it over and will probably get it - the coating on my 4qt Circulon nonstick chef's pan is shot (the circulon concept seems impractical to me) and it appears that the Calphalon has a similar volume. I consider a chef's pan to be a real workhorse piece, suitable for sauteeing, braising, soups, boiling pasta. It's great for a beginning cook or a small kitchen.
