It’s a sauce pan, it’s a fry pan – use this chef’s pan for simmering sauces or frying smaller cuts of meat. Use a balloon whisk to stir sauces – the shape of the whisk follows the gently curved sides along the bottom of the pan. The wider mouth of this chef’s pan offers more efficient evaporation than a standard sauce pan. Bring stunning, contemporary design to your kitchen with Calphalon Contemporary Stainless cookware.
