One of the most used pans in any well-equipped kitchen. Saute's have straight sides to provide a large cooking surface and increased capacity. A lid helps to keep moisture in for moist tender dishes. A helper handle is added to assist in lifting so food can be safely moved from oven to table. Used for cooking casseroles, sautéing meat or vegetables, searing steaks, fish and poultry. The nonstick surface makes cleanup effotless.
