A small saucepan is very handy for warming up soups, making sauces, cooking rice, boiling eggs and so on. No kitchen should be without one! Vacuum-pressure casting allows this line of cookware to have a thick base for even heating, thin walls for less energy loss and lighter weight, and thick rim for structural stability and lid support. This cookware won't warp and the non-stick surfaces both inside and out won't blister, peel or chip. Glass lids let you see what's going on while sealing in flavors and moisture. Casting allows the handle bases to be an integral part of the pan, making rivets unnecessary. No rivets makes the interior easier to keep clean. The phenolic handles feature an ergonomic design with a thumb rest, nice and comfy!
