Designed for various cooking tasks, making sauces, cooking vegetables or for braising, searing and deglazing small cuts of meat. Oven- and broiler-safe. Made of a heavy-gauge aluminum that distributes the heat evenly and eliminates hot spots as you cook. Safe for use in the oven and under the broiler. Hard anodizing seals the cooking surface, making it stick-resistant and non-reactive to food. Long handles are designed to stay cool on the stovetop and are balanced with such precision that even full pans are easy to manage and carry.
