Gadget Post – Saucier

This is a saucier, a pan with a smooth curve where the sides blend into the bottom without a sharp angle.  I haven’t made a suce in mine yet but I expect to do so soon enough.I did whip up a quick dinner in it – this is potatoes, onions, pulled pork, and a cup of tomatillo salsa.
Mine is made by Demeyere and it’s a real bargain as these types of pan go.  It is made with 5 plies of metal and is a heavy pan that is of heirloom quality.  I think it compares favorably with a similar All Clad item, and for half the price.
