The All-Clad d5 Polished Stainless 2 Qt. sauce pan is ideal for making sauces, heating liquids, cooking food in liquids and reheating. With high, straight sides and a smaller surface area, the sauce pan holds heat well and limits evaporation. The classic sauce pan is a versatile essential found in a variety of sizes in every well- equipped kitchen, and it can be used with or without its lid to control evaporation. The only cookware of its kind, All-Clad d5 Polished Stainless features a patented technology of five alternating layers of responsive aluminum and durable heat-diffusing stainless steel. SD5 Polished cookware heats slowly and evenly, which means perfectly browned proteins throughout, from the center all the way to the edges. The 5-ply bonded cookware’s 18/10 stainless-steel interior with a highly polished starburst finish offers natural stick resistance, and prevents food from picking up a metallic taste, while its fingerprint-free brushed stainless exterior offers exceptional beauty. All-Clad d5 Polished Stainless cookware provides pouring lips, large handles with bolsters, dishwasher-safe convenience, and is optimized for induction (some exceptions). Experience a lifetime of cooking enjoyment with All-Clad d5 Polished Stainless.
