I am planning to buy a 1 qt saucier as a gift for my sister. I had planned to buy All-Clad stainless (I have it and quite like it) but then wondered if I should get something that has a pouring lip. How important do you think this is? Are there some other brands I should consider? I will say that right now the 1 qt A-C saucier is at a really great price ($60) although it has no lid. Still, if I am buying a gift, I want to make sure it's the best of its kind.
I would love your suggestions.
