All-Clad Windsor Pans Instead Of Saucepans?
I really don't care for the tall narrow shape of the All-Clad 2 qt. saucepan, and the lack of a pouring lip. I much prefer the shape of their windsors or their reduction pans, and they have the lip for easier pouring. Any reason why I couldn't use the 1.5 and 2.5 qt. pans as my smaller saucepans instead? I know they reduce things faster, but would this be a problem in cooking other things in them for day to day cooking?
I also have their 3 qt. saucier, but I guess I don't really need it with the 2.5 windsor...do I? I think I can do more with the windsor pan, than the similar sized saucier. What do you think?
The 1.5q Windsor and 3q saucier are my saucepans, and that arrangement works out great. I get a lot of use out of both pans and never feel the need for a similarly sized "regular" saucepan. I generally only cook for 1 or 2. I'll, at some point, probably get a regular AC 4q saucepan, but at this point it really would be an unnecessary splurge.
