    I am considering getting a sauteuse evasee pan that comes with either a flat or domed lid. I've had neither this pan nor ever used a domed lid before. When and why would a domed lid be preferable? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

    Dome gives you more enclosed volume. So for a braise it could hold a bigger hunk of meat. Done drain to the side in theory rather than dripping down on what you're cooking. In theory. Dome tend to warp less, but I find they ding on the edges more easily. Dome can be trickier to store.
