variance of materials aside, from a pure shape standpoint, what is the difference between these two pans.
I see the specs are listed different, but it seems like they almost just got measured different as well.
essential 4qt - 10 1/2" diam., 4" high; 6 lb. w/lid.
weeknight 4qt - 13" x 6"; 24" wide (with handle)
Is the bottom surface area of the weeknight pan just a lot smaller? It's obviously deeper and wider at the rim but it's hard to see in pics.
