Sauciers and sauté pans are characterised by their high edges which makes it both easy to fry and cook vegetables meat and fish. Here you will find our large assortment of saucier and sauté pans to add to your cookware collection.
With us at Nordic Nest, you will be able to choose from some of the best sauté pans and saucier pans by Scandinavian and global brands.
A sauté pan generally has straight side and a large surface area, which makes it suitable for tasks such as searing meat or reducing sauces. The high walls also make it easy to add more liquid and ingredients and therefore they are perfect if you are going to cook food that requires both cooking and frying. Since a sauté pan has more room that a regular frying pan, it is perfect if you will be cooking larger quantities of food.
Generally, sauté pans come with lids to lock in moisture and heat so that foods with longer cooking times won’t dry out. A lid also stops hot splashes of liquid from jumping out and making a mess or burning you. For practical sauté pans with lids, we recommend designer brands such as Tefal and Zwilling.
Typically, a saucier has a wide-mouth design with sides that slope to a rounded bottom. The wider opening allows for faster evaporation which means that liquids can reduce more quickly. This makes it ideal for reducing sauces or cooking foods such as oatmeal or risotto. The rounded bottom allows you to whisk or stir without getting food stuck or burnt on the sides of the pot base. The design of the saucier also makes it easy to clean.
When choosing the best sauté pan or saucier for you, you should consider the type of stove top in your kitchen as certain materials work better with different hobs.
Induction hobs are becoming more popular as they are energy efficient and fast heating, however they are not compatible with all cookware materials. Stainless steel sauté pans are popular induction sauté pans, whereas enamel and copper sauté pans should be avoided for this type of hob.
