Tramontina's Gourmet Enameled Cast Iron 2.5 Qt. Covered Sauce Pan is prized by cooks for heat retention and even cooking. This sauce pan comes in a vibrant, gradated porcelain enamel exterior finish offering an elegant kitchen to table serving option. The self-basting condensation ridges on lid uniformly collect and direct vapors onto food, producing moist and savory dishes making the sauce pan a perfect vessel for slow cooking recipes, evenly reducing sauces, braising meats and sautéing vegetables with incredible flavors. The heavy-gauge cast-iron covered sauce pan cooking surface is coated with off-white, smooth and easy-to-clean PFOA and PTFE-free porcelain enamel and the sturdy side handles make handling a filled pan more manageable. The cast stainless steel knob is oven-safe giving you flexibility to bake or roast at higher temperatures up to 450 F (232 C). This cookware is compatible with all cooktops and is oven-safe up to 450 F (232 C). Hand-wash only.
