Since the 17th century, saucepans have been used by professional chefs and home cooks alike: their small surface area and tall sides allow an even distribution of heat throughout their simmering contents and limit the risk of spillage compared to other kinds of pots. They can even be used in the oven for quick braising or steaming with the help of a steamer basket. Le Creuset’s stainless steel version of this kitchen staple will boil pasta water, make frothy hot chocolate or butternut squash soup in no time.
