More shallow than a classic sauce pan, the saucier is designed for foods requiring frequent stirring or whisking, including creamy sauces, risotto, polenta and custards. The pan's wider mouth allows for sauce reduction, while its curved sides allow for easy incorporation of ingredients. Premium tri-ply construction delivers even heat distribution. Interior starburst finishing provides superior stick resistance. Engraved capacity marking on the bottom of the pan. Long stick handle stays cool on the cooktop. 18/10 stainless steel cooking surface will not react with food. 1 quart capacity.
