Hestan Probond Forged Stainless Steel Essential Pan, 5QT
It’ll never leave the stove.
We dare you to find something you can’t cook up in this wonder. Handcrafted in Italy, it’s got a wide, high-sided shape that lets it simmer pasta, prep soups and stews, and whiz through all kinds of casseroles. And wait till you hear what it’s built from: It’s cold-forged, triple-bonded stainless steel, with a layer of aluminum inside for quick and even heating. The thick bottom, thinner sides, and flared rim make it lightweight yet sturdy (it can even pour sauces out without a drip in sight). Oh, and thanks to the flush rivets, you’re looking at your easiest-ever cleanup.
