What is your favorite pan?

Mine is my All-Clad 3-quart saute pan - I reach for it first most of the time. I often use it for pan-frying as well as sauteeing, because the high sides keep more of the spatter inside the pan, and since it's larger than my largest skillet, I can usually fit in it comfortably the meat and/or sauce I'm making.

What's your favorite?

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

I like my sauce pan. Only because whatever I need to cook, can be done in it now. It's only me and dh now.

I think mine would be my wok.
Then my cast iron skillet.
Then my battered, 1 handle missing soup pot.

My most versatile pan would have to be this one
The one reccomended to me by a member here when I was looking for an atypical everyday pan. I could easily cook most anything in it. I love the high sides and flat bottom. And that it has a lid.

My saute pan is used at some stage of most things.

My favorite is my 5 1/2 quart Cuisinart deep saute pan (with lid). It's the original Cuisinart cookware that was made in France, with the copper sandwich on the bottom. I love it because I can cook dinner for a crowd in one pan, and it always heats evenly, so it browns my meat better than any other pan I can remember. so evenly! It has a wide enough diameter to accommodate a whole cut-up chicken, or 4 gigundo pork chops without crowding. It goes into the oven, and straight to the table.

wouldn't like to live without it.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
