all it says is tri-play base up on the top and than it says stainless steel, covered jumbo cooker 5 quart capacity. It talks about requiring low or medium heat to saute, fry or cook most foods. I'm hoping this is a "sticky" pan that will allow me to deglaze.

That should work just fine then. With SS it is rare that you need to go above med-high heat.

Get the pan hot, then put in your fat (oil, bacon fat, butter, etc.) and get that hot too. Then put your meat in the pan. Once the meat is in the pan DO NOT touch it for a couple of minutes. It will stick to the pan initially, but after a few minutes it will release from the pan (but some fond, the little tasty bits) will be left behind.

If I'm just going to sear some chicken before putting it in the oven with some otehr stuff, should I use my new stainless steel pan I bought...or just use a nonstick pan?

If you're going to brown the chicken aqnd move it to another pan for the oven, either will work. If you want to make a pan sauce with the fond, use the SS.
