I want to buy a good general purpose rondeau or braiser. I’d like to be able to sear well in it, sauté to do pasta sauces and then combine w pasta, braise, maybe do some paella. I’m not a super pro cook but I like to cook. I’m not trying to collect a lot of cookware but I’m happy to spend whatever — that said not looking to buy anything over $500.
Currently have a LC dutch oven and a pretty standard collection of all clad. I find I’m missing something w shallower walls that are still tall enough to sear without making a mess. I was considering a staub braiser but am learning they aren’t so well loved for what I’m wanting.
Considering the Fissler 28 cm roaster and a stainless Mauviel (Linked). Would welcome other ideas and pros / cons of these choices.
