The occasion demands something extraordinary, a Bearnaise sauce for your tournedos of beef perhaps. This small pan can play a critical role of your culinary success. Its wide top and sloping sides are perfect for creating spectacular sauces.
The bestseller among All-Clad's renowned cookware collections, the Stainless line provides serious and professional cooks all the virtues that make All-Clad's worldwide reputation unsurpassed. Key to its high performance is a three-ply, bonded construction. Sandwiched between layers of stainless steel is a thick core of pure aluminum that spreads heat evenly across the bottoms of pots and pans and all the way up the sides. The interior is 18/10 highly polished stainless steel, so it's stick-resistant as well as stain- and corrosion-resistant. The exterior is gleaming, magnetic stainless steel that works on induction as well as conventional stovetops, and, with care, remains beautiful during this cookware's lifetime warranty against defects--and beyond.
This classic, versatile 1-quart saucier has rounded sides, which increase the amount of food it can hold relative to the diameter of its bottom. Because the aluminum core extends up the sides, foods cook uniformly in the pan, even though it's 2-1/4 inches deep. Because the interior is nonreactive, tomato-based sauces and other acidic foods won't taste metallic. Its polished 18/10 stainless-steel handle is riveted to the pan for strength, grooved on the top and rounded on the bottom for comfort, and holed in the end for hanging on a hook or peg. The long handle stays cool on the stovetop but won't be harmed by an oven's highest heat. Although Stainless cookware is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended.--Fred Brack
From the Manufacturer
All-Clad Stainless Construction
Each piece of All-Clad cookware features a unique metal bonding construction. All-Clad Stainless cookware sandwiches a thick core of three separate layers of aluminum between an easy-to-clean, highly polished 18/10 stainless-steel cooking surface and a magnetic stainless-steel exterior. The aluminum core retains heat and evenly distributes it along the bottom and up the sidewalls of the cookware. The stainless interior is stick-resistant and cleans easily. The magnetic stainless-steel exterior gives the cookware a gleaming finish. All-Clad Stainless also features the company¡¯s signature "stay-cool" long handles, lids fashioned from gleaming 18/10 stainless steel, and highly durable stainless-steel rivets. All-Clad Stainless cookware is one of five collections from All-Clad Metalcrafters. Designed to work on conventional gas and electric ranges, as well as induction cooktops, All-Clad Stainless cookware is the best-selling collection in a full line that includes All-Clad LTD, Cop-R-Chef, Master Chef 2, and Copper Core.
Features and Benefits
All-Clad pans with a stainless interior cooking surface are oven-safe up to 500 degrees. All-Clad pans with a non-stick cooking surface are oven-safe up to 400 degrees, but should not be used under the broiler. We recommend using a low to medium temperature when cooking with All-Clad. Higher heats are not necessary and may cause discoloration (see cleaning instructions below). Other features include:
- Beautifully polished, magnetic stainless exterior layer.
- Pure aluminum core that not only covers the bottom of the pan but also extends up the sides. This allows for great heat conductivity as well as an even heat distribution so you won¡¯t have "hot spots" when cooking.
- Stainless-steel interior layer/cooking surface.
- Long, polished stainless, stay-cool handles.
- Sturdy, non-corrosive stainless-steel rivets won't react with foods.
- Polished stainless-steel lids fit evenly with the pan¡¯s edges to seal in flavor of your foods.
- The All-Clad Stainless collection is compatible with an induction stovetop (with the exception of a few pieces) in addition to gas and electric stovetops.
- The Stainless collection is dishwasher-safe, excluding pieces with a nonstick cooking surface.
From date of purchase, All-Clad guarantees to repair or replace any item found defective in material, construction or workmanship under normal use and following care instructions. This excludes damage from misuse or abuse. Minor imperfections and slight color variations are normal.
For daily cleaning, warm soapy water is sufficient. Clean your All-Clad thoroughly after each use. Food films left of the pan may cause discoloration and sticking. To get rid of stuck-on food or discoloration and stains from using too high of a heat, we recommend cleaning your All-Clad with a product called Bar Keeper¡¯s Friend. To use the Bar Keeper¡¯s Friend, simply use a soft cloth or sponge and water and make into a soupy paste. This can be used on the interior, as well as the exterior of your All-Clad (excluding the Cop-R-Chef). The Bar Keeper¡¯s Friend can also be used on the exterior of the All-Clad Stainless collection, LTD collection, and MC2 collection. For cleaning of the Cop-R-Chef exterior, simply use a brass/copper cleaner. If your water has a high iron content, you may notice a rusty discoloration. Use Bar Keeper¡¯s Friend to remove it.

- Pot great, condition unacceptable
The 3 quart saucier I bought was sold by Amazon. It was the last one available. When it arrived the lid was bent and there were very noticable dings inside the pot. Looking at the packaging of the lid, it was clear this package had been opened before. Others have complained on Amazon of suspecting that defective items had been shipped out before and returned and then shipped to them again. I suspect this was the case with this item. Return is simple, if you consider packaging the whole thing up again and hauling it to a UPS store simple. I'm going to go to Macys and buy the cassoulet, which is the same pot with different handles for less money. Couldn't find the 3 quart saucier locally, which is why I ordered it here. Won't order any more kitchenware on Amazon....more info
- Watch out for the tipping!
This is a nice saucier for very small jobs but BE WARNED- you have to keep an eye on this pan when using it on gas stoves since the handle is so much heavier than the body. The base of the pan is smaller than the top (since that is the basic shape of the saucier pan) so the surface area is just not sturdy on the stove grates. I have tipped it and spilled out the contents MANY times while using it. If you have to reach for an item and don't hold the handle or balance it just right on your burner, it goes over VERY easily and makes a mess! Beautiful pan, but I don't use it too much because of that fact. Perhaps the larger volume 2 or 3 quart saucier would be a better, more useful buy....more info
- A fabulous, all around ktichen workhorse
I couldn't decide: the 3 quart saute, sauce, or saucier.
Tradition said to stick with the saute. But I knew that I needed something with higher sides.
A 3 quart saucepan? Who was I kidding? That's a monster.
So, feeling like Goldilocks, I finally hit my "just right" option, the saucier.
This is not a pan that is well known, but what's not to love? The high sides and beveled inside curve mean you can reduce and whisk and sauce to your heart's content without sticking. The large surface area of the bottom plate means you can saute and sear without worry of space constraints. And I haven't even mentioned how evenly it conducts heat, its well-balanced heft, or striking beauty on my pot rack.
This pan does it all. Break with tradition as I did, and you'll use it almost daily just as I do....more info
- 5.5 qt - great for much of what I cook
I'd coveted a friend's 3qt but didn't feel right buying a piece of cookware just because it was so lovely and well shaped. Luckily I received the 5.5 qt version as a present and at first I thought it would be impractical, I didn't need anything that large, but I was wrong.
I like to braise meats which often means several steps of browning, then deglazing, then adding liquid and cooking in the stovetop or oven. I've got a large heavy enameled dutch oven that I used to use but it always felt clumsy sauteing with the steep sides, and it is heavy enough that moving it around is a chore.
The 5.5 qt saucier is a much better fit for me. The smaller bottom and curved sides give me a more even hot area and easier access with utensils and because the heat comes up the sides it works like a good saute pan with a long handle. Then when it's time to work as a dutch oven it's deep enough to fill, drop the lid on, and move to a back burner or the oven.
I appreciate that I can clean it with barkeeper's friend (not as easy as cast iron to clean but much less heavy) and then put it in the dishwasher for a final clean and sterilization.
And it's lovely....more info
- Very Nice Saucier
Like others have said, this is a SAUCIER pan not a SAUCE pan. Just made a terrific bordelaise and the red wine reduction process was performed perfectly with this pan...If you're planning on using it to warm up canned soup, boil water, or to heat up your kids Chef-Boy-Are-Dee spaghetti and meatballs go get something cheap. If you are serious about sauces and want to invest in something that will out last you, buy this pan. Also buy the 2 Quart Saucier since many French recipes call for a 2 quart pan. Happy Cooking!...more info
- THE PERFECT LITTLE PAN from AMAZON.COM
The pan arrived quickly and in perfect condition from Amazon. This is just a jewel of a pan. There is something so beautiful about the flawless metal I enjoy using it very much. I ordered the 8" All-CLAD Fry Pan that was shipped from CHEF'S RESOURCES also and could just not get over that this company shipped me a USED FRY PAN THAT WAS STILL DIRTY FROM THE PREVIOUS OWNER AND WAS DAMAGED!! ALL-CLAD is such a great product but just don't buy from Chef's Resources. ...more info
- Ah, All-Clad...
I bought this to be a quick-heat single-serving pot because my Le Creuset just takes too long to boil a can of soup. As a result of using it over "medium" heat, the bottom is beginning to discolor, but I am still very happy with this purchase. I do appreciate that it's made in the USA, but the reason to buy All-Clad is that it's just a little bit better than the other pans you could buy. My friends with the copper core All-Clad pans get better performance, but you can't go wrong with aluminum core for a much more reasonable price....more info
- Recommend with reservations
One reservation I have about this pan is the handle being heavier than the body. While this doesn't interfere with actual cooking performance, it's irritating to have the pan tipping over until it has something in it. Also, I love stainless for many things, but in the future will stick to non-stick for sauciers and saucepans. You lose some of your sauce, as it sticks to the sides of the pan....more info
- Great Pot
All Clad's quality speaks for itself. This saucier provides the same great heating AC is known for. I tend to reach for this during the holidays when I have to boil a lot of vegetables. I use it interchangably with the sauce pan because rarely do I make enough of a sauce to warrant this pot.
Stainless finish means it's dishwasher safe. Stay-cool handle is wonderful. ...more info
I use it for reducing sauces, but also like it for soups, reheating chile, or caramelizing some onions. I'm not a purist. If it works, it works, and this pan works for multiple purposes. It IS a little "handle heavy" but that's a minor quibble in my view. ...more info
- Perfect for One
I use this pan to reheat soup and make sauces for one. Sloped sides help evaporation. Even heating, heavy for it size. I love the fact I can put it in the dishwasher after I've made a sticky glaze.
If you have to choose, go with the two quart, it's more practical (unless you're looking for a test piece.) Mine was a freebie. ...more info
