I just purchased, from Amazon, an AC Stainless 4 Qt Sauteuse pan. It arrived today, and I'm sending it back tomorrow.
The pan itself is fine, just like my 4 Qt saute. But, I ordered this pan to get a domed lid and figured I would pass the old AC saute to my son.
The lid is the problem. I know AC lids tend to be looseygoosey somewhat, but this lid was beyond. It didn't even sit well and allow enough "flange" for a better word, to fit from side to side.
I'm so irritated by the fact that so many companies are just throwing in the towel. Don't they know that some of us are long-time users and expect the same quality????? HELLO.
(Insert the scream of your choice here.)
I'm probably going to go for the Mauviel SS rondeau. Any ops on that pan from fellow Chows?
Thanks in advance for your opinions.
