Using a Braiser as a Saute Pan and Frying Pan

westes | Aug 3, 202103:16 AM     14

I have a friend who is starting to have a more serious interest in cooking and she wants to upgrade her old pans. Trying to save her some money, I am wondering what are the possible negatives in trying to use a braiser to also function as a saute pan and frying pan? A good candidate might be the Tramontina 6 quart tri-ply clad braiser as shown at the attached link. This 6-quart fully-clad pan weighs 7.42 pounds. That's a beefy stainless pan.

Clearly, the braiser is not going to substitute for a Demeyere Atlantis frying pan, if your goal is to sear a steak. Short of that, the braiser seems like a decent all-in-one pan.

Importantly, she cooks on an electric stove, so she probably does not need a thick disk to compensate for concentrated rings of induction energy.
