Stainless steel sides burning food

werewaschw | Sep 29, 201102:16 PM

"But disc bottoms make lousy sauce pans or fry/saute pans, because the sides burn food."

so on that website its said that the sides of a SS pan that only has alminum core in the bottom and not in the sides would burn food on the sides of the pan.

but if the base is encapsulated and the sides are not, i would think the sides are cooler than the base. how can food burn only at the sides? what is the explaination?
