Saucepans are one of the most important tools in any kitchen. Whether you are making a simple sauce, boiling vegetables, or simmering a soup, having the right saucepan can make the process much easier and more enjoyable. Finding the best saucepan to suit your needs can be a daunting task, so we have created this blog post to help you decide. We have compiled a list of the best saucepans to add to your kitchen collection. Read on to find out which ones cut.
1. Signature Saucepan
When it comes to cooking, there are few brands that can rival Le Creuset. They have been making some of the best kitchenware for decades, and their Signature Saucepan is no exception. It is aesthetically pleasing and goes well with other pieces in their Signature range.
The great thing about this saucepan is the weight of it. It has a heavy base and the sides are just as sturdy. You can simmer sauces for extended periods of time without worrying about them burning.
2. Stainless Steel Saucepan
With Le Creuset being quite a pricey brand, it is nice to see that they also offer reasonably priced saucepans. Their Stainless Steel range still holds up well compared to the Signature range and they are perfect if you are looking to save money. Le Creuset’s Stainless Steel Saucepan has a generous capacity of 3.5L, which is ideal for cooking larger meals. The handles stay cool during cooking and you can use them for pouring food out of the pan once it’s done.
3. Toughened Nonstick PRO Saucepan
If you want a saucepan that is versatile and allows you to cook large quantities of food, then Le Creuset’s Toughened Nonstick PRO Saucepan is the answer. It has a large capacity of 6.5L and made with toughened non-stick, which means it can handle large amounts of heat without getting scratched or damaged. The saucepan has a comfortable grip at the sides and the handles are detachable. You can use them to store your Le Creuset pieces if you store them elsewhere.
4. Nonstick Stainless Steel Saucier Pan
Le Creuset’s Nonstick Stainless Steel Saucier Pan features a large 6.5L capacity, which is ideal for cooking larger amounts of food. Its non-stick surface ensures that you can use it with less oil, thus saving you some pennies in the long run. The stainless steel handles are detachable and they are oven safe up to 210?C. You can use them as a trivet if you wish, though we wouldn’t recommend putting any heat source directly on the bottom of them.
5. Stainless Steel Saucier Pan
Although Le Creuset’s Stainless Steel Saucier Pan is a little more expensive than the other stainless steel saucepans, it offers a much better value for money. It has an impressive 13L capacity which will definitely be enough to cook larger meals or even store some of your leftovers. You can use this saucepan to sauté a sauce or just boil some vegetables. The stainless steel handles can also be used as trivets.
6. Traditional Saucepan
Le Creuset’s Traditional Saucepan is perfect for small kitchens or if you want a durable saucepan that can hold up to some rough treatment. It is made of 18/10 stainless steel and has a generous capacity of 2L. The handle is designed in such a way as to not block any heat and the sides have been polished to ensure that food slides off easily. There are three indents at the bottom of the saucepan, which provide ease when removing.
