I’ve been on the lookout for a saucepan in the 4-quart range–my Cuisinart saucepans top out at 3-quart, and the French ovens start at 5-quart and are a little to big for something like a week’s worth of oatmeal. I had originally planned to stick with Cuisinart, but Elizabeth Moon has been waxing lyrical over on her blog about her All-Clad pots and pans, and I pondered taking the plunge and getting an All-Clad saucepan. I have the small roaster and non-stick grill pan already, and I like them. I also wanted to see if there was any difference in performance or construction compared to the Cuisinart. But I wasn’t sure what I wanted, and I didn’t want to make a pricey mistake.
Then yesterday at the day job, I received a really nice thank-you award from a co-worker that consisted of a nice gift certificate to the store of my choice. One of the stores on the list was cooking.com.
You know where this is going.
All my casseroles and large saute pans have straight sides. The sloping sides are supposed to better for stir-frying and sauteing. And it’s deeper than the usual fry pan, so it’s also suitable for oatmeal I think.
Anyway, I went with cheap shipping, so I may not get it until early December. Just in time for Christmas cooking. And oatmeal.
