does a pan with these specs exist?

I would like a large pan similar to a saute pan, that has softly curved/angled sides instead of straight up/down, similar to a fry pan, but taller.

Bonus points if it has a lid with a bit of doming to it.

Would I be looking at a circular au gratin pan? Or.. ? Does it exist?

No brands, just looking for name/style of this. Many thanks!

  1. There are several kinds in between the typical fry pan and the saute pan. Most noticeably, the country fry pan

    As for lids, many of them come with lids, but some don't.

    1. HSN: GreenPan™ Elegant Curves Stainless Cook Set and Cookbook Item: 150-067
      This one comes in a set but it looks like it is on clearance at HSN for $99.
      Retail value, $249. They call it a 4 quart casserole with lid here.

        1. Wait, do you want one with a long handle or not?

          1. This sounds exactly like every cast iron skillet I've ever seen, and you can buy lids (domed) for the new Lodge ones. Or, don't you want CI? I guess a 12" skillet has 'walls' that might be ever so slightly shorter than the traditional 3" for a saute, but it should be awful close.
