Attempting any sauce is less of a challenge with All-Clad's Copper Core 2.5 Quart Windsor Pan. Professional chefs love this style for its flared shaping that receives whisking well and promotes a faster, smoother reduction. Handling delicate bases is simply a matter of oversight while heavier sauces or even gravies are treated equally well. For home kitchens, the Copper Core Windsor Pan removes all fear in experimenting with French cuisine while it also becomes a wonderful fit for a variety of other ingredients including perfectly thickened balsamic reductions and homemade teriyaki infusions. On a burner or in the oven, warming continues with the included fitted stainless lid featuring wide lipped edging. A copper core bonded between lightweight aluminum layers is responsible for marvelous heat conduction that rises from the base up the sides to the rim. That helps reduce hot spots while providing thoroughly even heating that is easy to control. Stainless surfacing reduces sticking while the Copper Core Windsor Pan's exterior features accenting banding and an angled handle that aids in balance when transporting or transferring larger quantities. Solid riveting finishes the look that stands out on stovetops or suspended from pot racks.
