A revered piece in the French batterie de cuisine, the versatile rondeau is a mainstay in restaurant kitchens. Made in France, Mauviel's hammered-copper rondeau, which made its Williams-Sonoma debut in the 1960s, is the ideal vessel for everything from sauteing vegetables to preparing hearty braises and stews. Heavy-gauge 3mm copper for superior heat conductivity and temperature control. Nonreactive tin interior is easy to clean. Wide, shallow design ensures efficient searing and browning. Riveted bronze handles. Handsome enough for stove-to-table presentation.
