A natural choice for making convenient one-pot dishes, this pan has a copper core for supremely even heat. The pan's wide base makes it suitable for browning and sauteing ingredients over high heat, while rounded sides contain liquids and facilitate stirring. Five-ply construction of securely bonded metals: a thick, extremely heat-responsive copper core sandwiched between two layers of highly conductive aluminum with an easy-clean stainless-steel exterior and interior that won't react with foods. Allows for the quickest heat-up time, maximum temperature control and rapid, even heat distribution. A ring of copper adds a finishing touch to the gleaming exterior. Domed lid promotes heat circulation and locks in moisture. Riveted stainless-steel handles stay cool on the cooktop. Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction. Hand crafted in the USA with materials from the USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
