BonJour’s collection of clad cookware offers precise control over the cooking process with an elegant, European flair. Clad metal construction is the preferred fabrication by professional and home chefs alike. The interior layer of each pan is crafted of pure 18/10 stainless steel which is non-reactive and doesn’t adversely affect the flavor of delicate ingredients or subtle sauces. The exterior is made of magnetized steel which is induction suitable and polished to a beautiful mirror finish. The key to clad cookware is the heat conductive metal core layered in between the stainless steel throughout the entire pan. BonJour’s unique design offers better heat conduction than traditional clad cookware because its thicker base evenly directs the heat up the side walls and around the pan. The result is stunning cookware that heats up quickly and evenly and provides a lifetime of exceptional performance. The culinary heritage that introduced buttery, delicate sauces and bold, lush wines reinvents itself in new clad cookware from BonJour. Time-honored tradition and attention to detail made these quintessentially French delights international favorites. The same care and commitment to excellence can be found in BonJour’s clad collection, which is why it’s the preferred cookware in the famed Eiffel Tower restaurant. With its bold silhouettes, generously appointed fittings and exceptional performance, they will be your favored culinary tools as well.The 2.5 qt saucier pan is perfect for risotto and all sauces. Its rounded base allows for easy whisking and the wide diameter speeds the reduction time for sauces.
