Sauce pans are great stove top assets because you can do so many things with them. Sauce pans come in multiple sizes and surfaces to serve your preferences for how you like to cook and cleanup. Stainless steel and non-stick sauce pans in 1 to 8 quart capacities provide great range in choosing one or several of these universal pans. Whether, sautéing, boiling or frying, a sauce pan will get the job done. Once you decide the sauce pan you want, try to match it with other pans that have compatible surface and usage qualities to maintain consistency in your kitchen.
