If you only purchase one saucepan, this is it. Made from 5-ply professional grade stainless steel sandwiched around a pure aluminum core that provides superior heat conductivity, this saucepan produces professional chef results. No burning. No hot spots. Even heat conductivity. (If you answer a phone call, your oatmeal or onions won’t burn.) The magnetic stainless steel exterior makes this premium cookware ideal for any cooking surface, including induction cooktops. The brushed stainless steel finish also makes cleaning easier and keeps the saucepan looking new longer. Oven safe up to 500 degrees and made from 18/10 stainless steel.
