2 to 2 1/2 quart saucepan
I'm looking for a good 2 to 2 1/2 quart saucepan to replace an older Saladmaster model that I really liked...don't like the All-Clad version which is too narrow with high sides. Anyone recommend any good brands?
Calphalon's Tri-Ply Stainless is nice. In the 2 1/2 quart size saucepans they have a normal, which I think hase reasonable width, definitely wider than the All-Clad 2Q, and they also have a wider one, which I think they call a 'shallow saucepan'. The triply is clad aluminum, as the name implies, and it has nice rolled rims for pouring - an advantage over most All-Clad.
When you say "replaced" do you mean that it "broke" in some way or you lost it?
Saladmaster from my recolledtion had a lifetime warranty up till a certain time then went to some renew program. Of course if it is lost or is no longer in your possession, Saladmaster cannot help that.
Personally, I never was all that impressed with Saladmaster, mainly because of the lack of a flat bottom in a majority of their pans. (Dimple bottomed)
I don't have any 2 qt favorites but check out the links below. Royal Industries makes good low end pan, World Cuisine and Eurodib makes a good mid to upper mid (3/4) grade of pans. The others are just less known pans.
