It is said that if you indulge in copper cookware, this pan should be the first in your collection. Designed so that the sides of the pan flare from the base, the splayed saute pan is a do-anything pan in which you can saute chicken, remove it, and make a light Madeira-flavored cream sauce right in the same pan. With a traditional hand-tinned interior, the splayed sides of the pan allow for more exposure to air than straight sides and a quick reduction of sauce. The splayed sides also make it easier to use a whisk in the pan, since there are no sharp corners.
Copper is the best conductor of heat and can be used on any heat source or in the oven. The saute pan measures 8" in diameter across the top and 3" in depth with a capacity of 1.7 qts. The pan is a heavy, durable 3mm thick with an iron handle affixed by sturdy rivets.
