Brand & Type: Cuisinart 3 Quart Chef's Classic Sauce Pan
Price range: medium, around $20
Description: 3 Quart stainless steel sauce pan
Pros: stainless steel.
Cons: sandwich base.
Conclusion: Cuisinart makes a nice line of cookware but we usually stay away from pans that have a sandwich bottom layer. They tend to have thick bottoms and retain heat well but because the metal is not even up the sides there can be hot spots. Also when the bottom is very thick it can take 5 - 8 minutes to heat the pan up.
This 2 quart pot/pan is a nice item but the bottom ruins it for us.
