I was considering buying a copper saute pan which I just realized is about 20lbs (its 16" in diameter and 3mm thick). Im 6'4 so im pretty big but I dont want to regret buying it. I just felt like buying it because its not everyday you find a pan like this. The thing is im not sure if one can really saute properly in a pan this heavy. Never had one this heavy so have no idea what it would be like to cook in it.
