Saucepans & Sauciers
ZWILLING saucepans combine class and functionality for making full-flavoured sauces, roasting and braising.
What are saucepans used for?
Saucepans and sauciers have a wide range of uses in the kitchen. Thanks to their stable, long handle, they are particularly easy to hold on to when stirring. This makes them the tool of choice when preparing sauces or cooking pudding or milk. Thanks to the long handle, the pot always lies securely in your hand so you can fully concentrate on cooking.
Saucepans: proven classics in a modern guise
Saucepans have a long history. Since the 17th century, the cooking pot with a handle has also been known as a “casserole”. This is derived from the Old French word "casse" (meaning: large spoon) as well as the Latin term "cattia" (meaning: ladle). Many modern saucepans still have this well-proven shape.
The stem pots have a diameter of 16cm to 22cm. Small pots with a handle ensure a firm grip and are therefore especially suitable for making sauce hollandaise, for example. If you want to whip a sauce creamy, choose a higher pot. If you want to cook a vegetable garnish, stem pots with a larger diameter and more volume are more suitable. Depending on the bottom of the pot, style pots are mostly suitable for use on an induction stove.
An integrated scale allows you to measure fill quantities more accurately. This saves valuable time, especially when cooking sauces.
What are the best saucepans to buy?
In the ZWILLING Online Shop, you will find simple saucepans for occasional use. The range also includes special designs for intensive use. With a stainless steel saucepan, you can work with whisks without hesitation and without damaging the surface. If a saucier has a special coating, the use of silicone or wooden kitchen aids is recommended.
If you want an even heat distribution up to the sidewall, a saucepan with a SIGMABOND bottom is the right choice. The SIGMABOND base conducts, distributes, and stores the heat evenly so that e.g. cooking oil is distributed over the entire cooking utensil base. Due to the good heat storage, the stove settings can also be reduced to a lower temperature early on.
How to clean saucepans
Cleaning saucepans is similar to taking care of cookware. Saucepans are dishwasher-safe however, cleaning by hand is recommended to prolong their life.
