Sitram Profiserie Saute pan

I was asked to do a review of this, so here goes. The pan seems fine, though not as heavy as a similar Cuisinart pan might be. The induction capable bottom is set out and down from the bottom edge of the pan, so you lose a little cooking space there, I think, But in my one use of it, I didn't notice any problem.

The handle seems extra long to me, perhaps because it is meant to be used in a commercial kitchen.

As I stated in another thread, the lid is disappointingly flimsy. You buy the pan and lid separately, and I don't see why the lid is not made with more substantial materials. The lid is also magnetic. It has a tiny hold drilled in the edge for steam escape, I think.

The handle feels fairly comfortable, but I haven't used the pan enough to make a judgement.

My sauce was perfect in this pan! It performed well on my new induction cook top. No sticking, no burning. I think this pan is a good value option for induction cooking. I'll add more to these thoughts later, perhaps. Sitram Profiserie 3.3-Quart Commercial Stainless Steel Saute Pan
