Saute potatoes, stir fry vegetables, and create bouillabaisse in reliable pots and pans. These pans ensure heat is spread evenly over the entire surface, preventing hot spots that can impair flavor and even burn the mixture. Choose from nonstick options to pure stainless steel pans for easy cooking.
Produce Top-Quality Results
Chefs live and die by the quality of their food, and top-quality cookware ensures they get what they need when they need it. Choose a small sauce pan for creating hollandaise or b?arnaise sauces; create a roux in a skillet or frying pan as a precursor to gravy; or create a mirepoix to thicken soups.
Choose the Ideal Metal
For cooking quality, nothing quite beats cast iron, but stainless steel offers serious convenience and affordability. The pans are typically lighter so you don't wear yourself out while cooking, but heat distribution isn't quite as reliable as cast iron. Aluminum is the lightest, but tends to create hot spots in food, so it needs to be treated with care.
Pasta cookers and specialty pans, such as crepe pans and omelette pans, give you the tools you need to create exotic or special meals. Pasta cookers feature inserts so you can immediately take the pasta out as soon as it's al dente to provide that perfect bite to an Italian meal. Griddles let you cook burgers and meats to perfection, from blue to well done.
Other commercial cookware include woks, sheet pans, steak weights, and steamers for complete kitchen convenience. Colanders let you drain veggies, sifters ensure fine powders, and commercial bakeware gives you control over your baking.
