What to Replace AC 3.5 qt Sauce Pan with
I have a set of All Clad D5 Cookware that I purchased from Williams Sonoma.
After putting the pieces to the test, I have discovered that I HATE the Sauce Pans.
Currently I have a 3.5 QT., 2 QT and 1.5 QT.
The one I hate to cook with the most is the 3.5 QT is way too heavy to lift with one hand - for example to move contents into a strainer.
I am looking for a replacement that is lighter and easier to handle.
So far I was considering a Chef's Pan/Saucier - Le Creuset seems to have a good one.
I mainly use this type of pot for cooking Frozen Vegetable, Pasta, etc.
Appreciate any help!
I, too, was considering the LC pan. If you get it, let me know how it works.
You might try the 3.5 qt saucier from American Kitchen. Made in the USA by...Regalware? I think.
I have an All Clad original SS 3.5 quart, and an All Clad D5 4 quart with helper handle. The helper handle makes ALL the difference in the world. (I also prefer the pouring lip on the D5).
Any new AC pieces that I buy will be D5, and I will get it with helper handle if it is available on the size. It is worth the extra money to get the pieces with helper handles.
Take a look at the cuisinart Chefs Classic SS. My brother in law has one of the sets fm Macys and I must say, that the sauce pans are speed demons for heating up. Nice and light too.
