First let me say that this 1 1/2 quart pan has the same diameter as the 1 quart pan. It's just taller-about 1 3/8th inches taller. It's nice that the lids are interchangable but the taller nature of this "narrow" pan seems ever-so-slightly odd to me. I am able to cook 2 cups of rice in it, but just barely and there's not much room to "fluff" the rice when it's done. The rice cooks beautifully by the way. I can't wait to purchase the 2 and 3 quart models.
Yes, this pan is as good as everyone says it is. Solid, even heat, I even like the rounded inside corners. However, this pan has one glaring weekness - pouring liquid out of the pan. It dribbles down the side of the pan like me trying to drink water after my dentist shoots me up with novocaine. Another reviewer said a rounded lip would do the trick. It's too bad. That's the only thing keeping this from 5 stars. Everything I've cooked in it cooks beautifully but just don't make hot chocolate in it. Well, make the hot chocolate in it, just don't pour it right into the mug unless you do it over the sink.
