"Sur La Table� Braiser, 5 qt."
Love this pan, it is a dream to cook in as well as to clean. However, the handles get VERY HOT, and fast. Both my son and I have burned our fingers on the pan as it's very natural to grip the handles as you stir and cook. We have learned to put a pot holder beside the pan to avoid burning our hands on the handles.
Overall a very nice quality product, only draw back is the hot handles

Good buy
when i looked online, i thought it was a heavy Braiser. But it is a lightweight pan. The size is good and great for everyday cooking. Wish it was heavier

Nice pan but not perfect
There are sometimes things you find out after you use a new pan that you'd not thought of before. This is the case in this instance. I do love the size and non-stick surface but what I didn't realize is that these handles get hot. You will need to have potholders handy. I don't understand why this isn't like other pans. Also the glass cover isn't as practical as the other type cookers. The pan can go in the oven but the glass top cannot so you'll need to use something else on top like foil if you want it covered.
I got a great price and that influenced my purchase but I know better now what to look for. This does replace an old similar pan but that had handles that didn't get hot and a metal lid.

5 qt. Braiser
Love the pan it's light weight and cleans beautifully. Cooks everything perfectly.

The one problem I have with it is I was cooking some tomatillos on top of the stove had the lid on the pan after about 5 mins of cooking the lid exploded and naturally ruined the tomatillos and had to clean everything up and start over. With that hazard please take caution and only use the lid for covering after you have cooked things and want to just keep it warm ie melting cheese etc. before serving. That is the reason for the lower rating.

Nice all purpose pan
I have used this pan several times since it arrived for different purposes and it works very well. My only complaint is that the handles get very hot.

Love this pot!
I had been looking for a braiser and a dutch oven for 6 months ever since I used my boyfriends cast iron one. When I saw this and the accompanying Dutch oven for sale a few weeks ago I had to get them. I love this pot and so does my college daughter who has used it more than me so far! LOL It's easy to clean, non stick and everything seems to cook great in it. It was definitely a great buy and getting it on sale was a steal

Best pan EVER!!!
I purchased this to replace a large saute pan whose ""non-stick"" coating has seen better days. I love the depth and overall size of the pan, just wish I didn't have to use pot holders to pick it up when using it on the stove. I ordered this on April 1 (no joke), received it on April 2 (last night), used it to cook dinner, and it was AWESOME! it doesn't ""dance"" across the stove-top while stirring and the non-stick surface is wonderful. I'm tempted to find more pans in this collection. The quality is top-notch and the sale price amazing

Excellent general purpose pot
I've been using this braiser several times a week since the day it arrived. The nonstick surface is great, and the pot heats quickly and evenly. I've made sauces, stews, and soups in it. (Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've actually braised anything yet, but it's just been a couple of weeks.) I do wish the handles didn't get so hot - that means you need two potholders to manipulate it or lift it. But I'm quite pleased with the purchase over all
April 25, 2014
Perfect for almost everything!
We immediately use this the moment we got it out of the box. The stew was cooked perfectly and we noticed that the heat is spread-out evenly. the only complaint is that the handle gets really hot too (that's why features is just 4 stars) so you have to really careful when using this braiser. this was on sale when I got it so value is 5 star!!!

Plenty of room in this braiser
I really needed something a little bigger than my regular skillet. This one gives you a little more room. Great quality, not too heavy, nonstick. Really enjoying this one

lisa h on Dec 29, 2016
I have a similar pan of your brand (straight sided and 4 qts) which I like very much, so I wanted to give one to my daughter. I chose this one because I couldn't find one with straight sides, but I think she will like it.
Patricia M on Dec 21, 2016
I LOVE the Sur La Table brand cookware! It is not only affordable but comparable to the expensive top quality cookware brands like All Clad, etc. Can't wait to get my new braiser in the mail!

Nga M on Dec 9, 2016
I like the size and I can also start a recipe in the pot and then transfer it to the oven to finish cooking. From the reviews, it is not very heavy- better for me. I am looking forward to using it!!!
Diane M on Dec 5, 2016
I scratched up my girlfriend's identical SLT braiser when I browned a roast and used metal tongs. I used them lightly but the pan still scratched. It did not say in the description not to use metal utensils, but I should have known better.
Chefpaul10 on Nov 14, 2016
Been looking for a good braiser for an affordable price. This fits the bill. I know Sur La Table makes a good product.

ROBIN W on Nov 30, 2015
Versatile piece.
Mary P on Nov 26, 2015
I received a gift card for a present and this was the same price as the gift card. I also needed a bigger dish that I could do stews and chili in both the oven and on the stove top. It is big enough that I do hash browns and then cook the eggs on the other half. A very needed item to add to my cooking pots and pans.
Doug K on Nov 25, 2015
My friend has them and I loved using them when I cooked with her today so needed to order these two pieces for my own.

We trust the products that sur la table sells. The most important thing is that my wife is a very big fan of the Sur La Table Store.

Have the matching 6 qt. stock pot. Love it.
BinSanFrancisco on May 13, 2015
This is our second one -- we love the first one so much and can use two when cooking for groups or cooking different dishes for a small group. Its nonstick surface is really nonstick; it cleans up easily, and -- surprise -- it does a good job browning.
