Boil potatoes and blanch vegetables with this ingenious saucepan. It has a pouring spout and a deep lid rim with optional straining holes, so it can keep moisture inside or strain out cooking liquids. The rugged hard-anodized aluminum construction is twice as hard as stainless steel and conducts heat quickly and evenly for uniform cooking, while the SureGrip handles provide a soft, comfortable hold. The interior is finished with DuPont Autograph 2, which has been restaurant-tested by professional chefs and can even be used with metal utensils. It's a piece that'll always deliver a first-rate performance.
