I am in love with this 2-qt pot after using it for almost one week. Excellent even heating while I'm cooking. Super easy to clean and nothing sticks to it. I can throw the pot in the dishwasher afterward and not waste time scrubbing over the sink. It is also surprisingly light weight but is very delicately designed. When you open the lid, the cast aluminum amazingly dings with a pleasant resonance sound like a bell chanting! I'm pretty satisfied so far with my purchase.
