Wonderful saucepan
June 17, 2014
What a dilema? Do I purchase a Staub, All-Clad or Williams-Sonoma 3 qt. saucepan? I love my Staub cocottes and my All-Clad pans; however, I was highly interested in purchasing a piece of the Williams-Sonoma cookware. Wow! I sure am glad that I did. I absolutely love this pan. What a mini workhorse. The bottom is thick so the heat is diffused evenly so I don't have to stir a lot. I am not a fan of stirring. Secondly, the food cooked in this saucepan is so much more moist. The saucepan is lovely! I love the longer, more ergonomic handle and the insulated lid is my favorite. It keeps food warm for such a long time. Great at breakfast when you are preparing oatmeal. The handle and lid handle stay cool while cooking. This saucepan is absolutely spoiling me for sure. I can assure you that this saucepan will delight! it is becoming my favorite go-to and I have only had it for several weeks. It is so lovely that I keep it on my cooktop along with my 5.5 qt. Staub cocotte. Beautiful.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Versatile, Design

The pudding test
June 8, 2014
My cast iron Le Creuset 1 1/2 qt. was just too heavy, so i hefted the Thermo-Clad in competition with The All Clad 3: d5, copper core, and tri clad. Seemed solid, not too heavy. The ergonomic handle was great: and the styling couldn't hide it's Italian soul. Even though I already had two d5 pans, Thermo-Clad won my heart.
But was it just another pretty face? Could it make perfect puddings, pour without spilling, and not leave burned residue on the bottom? My Le Creuset had already failed the pudding test.
Not Thermo-Clad. Perfect puddings every time, perfect pouring without dripping some over the sides, easy to handle, and effortless to clean.
It wasn't the choice I expected to make. Go to a W-S store and try for yourself.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Design, Weight, work of art

Well constructed and weighted
May 27, 2013
I bought the 2qt size. And I find it heats quickly and evenly and has a lovely weighting. But to be fair, my All Clad cookware tick these boxes as well. However, there are 2 things that give this the edge so far. The shape and comfort of the handle and the insulated lid. The lid handle never gets hot during cooking. I love that I never have to use a potholder with it!
All in all I've been very impressed with the WS range based on this piece and plan on buying a sauté pan next.
Pros: Easy to Use, Design, Weight
