You may wonder what is the difference between the various types of frying pans available. Take a sauté pan for example; a sauté is a pan with straight sides. It also features a larger surface area which is perfect for searing meats and reducing liquids and sauces. Sauté pans typically come with a matching lid but this is not always the case. The high straight sides help with containment of food and liquids keeping your cooker nice and clean. See the range of Sauté Pans we have available below.
