I have quite a few skillets (SS & CI small saucepans and large stockpots and a steamer but I am lacking in this area
I have some real space constraints I am hoping this can double as a saucepans/saute pan
I am not sure if this sort of a sauteuse/saucepan hybrid will be able to do what I want. It is a multiclad Cuisinart brand (I have some of this brand it is only OK IMHO but the pricepoint on this pot is good.... if purchsed it will see much use/abuse I do not have an AllClad type budget)
added a discription of this pan... it has a wide top and narrower aluminum core base with curved sloping sides. It is somewhat wider and shorter than a traditional saucepan.
I have something somewhat like this called the Presto Options Multi Cooker,
which slow cooks, boils, steams, sautes, fries, deep fries, roasts and regular cooks.
Go to Presto® Pressure Cookers and Electric Appliances
. Over near the right, click on Multi Cookers. There are several models from which to choose.
I bought the appliance from Sears though.
