Good points

  • Fast boiling time.
  • OK to use.
  • Balanced (so there’s less pressure on your wrist when lifting).
  • Pouring is easy (lip around top of saucepan means less chance of dripping).
  • Has support handle if two hands needed to pour.
  • Oven safe.

But

  • Handle has no non-slip grip.
  • Steam escapes from around the lid and can rattle it.
  • Glass lid can accumulate grime and be difficult to clean.
