1.5 quart stainless steel vented sauce pan with glass lid. Flat tri-ply encapsulated base, with aluminum core layer sandwiched between stainless steel, increases heat conductivity. The tempered glass lid has a stainless rim with 2 drain hole sieves built into the lid: 3mm holes for steaming or straining smaller foods and 6mm holes for straining larger foods. Built in double pour spouts on the sauce pan so both left handed and right handed people can use. The handle is designed to stay cool. This is a really nice pan for the price.
