If you are drawn to the beauty of stainless steel, yet are reluctant to sacrifice the cooking efficiency of aluminum, you can now have the very best of both worlds. A mirror polish stainless steel exterior, a heavy gauge conductive aluminum filling, and a satin finish stainless steel interior form a 3-ply disc. The disk is then formed into a pan shape, with walls and bottom of equal thickness, which allows heat to be conducted evenly. A glass lid allows you to monitor food and its domed design returns condensed moisture to foods. A stay cool handle features an ergonomic design and secure attachment. This shallow pan is good for warming leftovers, making reduction sauces and for cooking grains like rice and bulgur.
