ISO sauce pan with glass lid

I'm looking for a good reasonably priced sauce pan with a glass lid. I've mostly used stainless steel pans. Which brand(s) would you recommend?

Walmart carries a Tramontina line that has glass lids. Also try BBB, they often have cookware that has glass lids.

My approach is a little different that most will be. I've had most of my cookware for decades and have my "pets." Over the years I've replaced the solid lids with glass ones I've found at thrift stores and yard sales. I have a huge 12-inch one that fits one of my cast iron skillets. It was a steal at $1.00. I rarely pay that much for a lid. Most of the time it's about a quarter or half a buck.

That's my way of handling the situation but you may wish to replace the pan AND lid so my plan won't work in that event.

I do have two saucepans I really like that have glass lids and they aren't too old. One is a nice Cuisinart one and the other is one of Emeril Lagasse's line. Both are made well and I like how they perform. I've had them long enough, though, that I don't remember where I bought them.

I also like Cuisinart products. I was just looking at a cuisinart skillet with a glass lid on Amazon. I have around 7 pots and pans from cuisinart some with glass lids. 2 of the pots have glass strainer lids that I love for pasta and potatoes etc. most of them are over ten years old. I buy from Amazon and they have good prices usually.

Calphalon or Cuisinart are good buys, I have both and almost no difference. BBB has its 20% off thing most of the time for both on line and in store.

$39.95

There are others also available. I'm looking at the one with the 2 small helper handles with the dome lid (dome lid not glass).

msmofet, that's a skillet, not a saucepan. KG, I don't know what size you're looking for, so here are the search results on Amazon for "Cuisinart saucepan with glass cover."

Amazon.com: Cuisinart saucepan with glass cover
Please reread my post. I said "I have ..." I never specifically stated saucepan. I was just stating that I have Cuisinart Pots and pans some with glass lids and I am happy with them. I stated I was looking for a skillet with a lid. The picture was of the skillet I found as an example of a Cuisinart product with a glass lid. I call everything a pot or a pan. Life is to short to go crazy over labels. Sorry about the confusion.

Sorry. I thought you were suggesting that to the OP. She's looking for a saucepan. I don't think it's crazy to use accurate language. It avoids confusion

That's exactly what I'm looking for! I thought I'd get a 1 quart and a 2 quart. Any larger than that might be too heavy to manage. I do have a large stockpot but it has a stainless steel lid.
