The ergonomic handle is cast from stainless steel with strong and secure rivet fixings, making the range oven safe up to 210°C. The glass Lid has an active steam vent, designed for air flow to keep handle cool even when the stainless steel pot is hot. It also has riveted die-cast stainless steel, stay cool handles which are easy to grip. The saucepan is great for stewing, simmering, making soups and, unsurprisingly, making sauces like pasta sauce. A very important task often designated to saucepans is boiling water for a small serving of pasta. It's also a good choice for things like mashed potatoes, risotto, lentils, or any other grain that requires boiling. It seals in the flavor and nutrients for a healthier and better tasting food. CARE INSTRUCTIONS – Hand wash the pans with hot soapy water and dry them using a soft cotton or linen towel; use a plastic or wooden utensil to keep the non-stick coating in great shape.
