Designed for braising - a classic French technique that calls for browning meat on the stovetop followed by baking in the moist heat of the oven - this pan has high sides and a generous capacity that make it ideal for dishes like osso bucco and chicken cacciatore. Three-ply construction sandwiches a heat-responsive aluminum core between an easy-clean stainless-steel interior and exterior; interior won't react with foods. Ensures fast, even heating. Domed lid promotes heat circulation and locks in moisture. Riveted stainless-steel handles stay cool on the cooktop. Includes a removable stainless-steel rack that elevates meats above their drippings. Ideal for use on any cooktop, including induction. Polished finish for oven-to-table presentation. Handcrafted in USA.
