Our Rating:

A promise of durability at a higher price point.

What Not to Love:

  1. Higher price point: However, consider the improvements when compared to the previous one. Also, this saucepan is meant for more seasoned cooks.

Final Remarks:

This pot stands at a significantly higher price point than the previous one and is intended for more seasoned cooks. Being able to use it in the oven at higher temperatures broadens the variety of recipes that can be made with it. Also, the improvement in its durability may be worth the price.

T-fal E75824 Performa Sauce Pan, 3-Quart

Our Rating:

A great option if you prefer stainless-steel

What to Love:

  1. Techno Release Interior: The interior of the saucepan has a raised pattern that reduces the risk of burning and sticking while allowing you to use less oil. Cook healthier meals by reducing the amount of fat and oil you use. The inner coating helps for easier cleanup.
  2. Appearance and durability: The pot is made with premium quality 18/10 stainless-steel construction which provides long-lasting durability as well as beauty.
  3. Induction compatible: Unlike the other pots, this one can be used on an induction cooktop, which is a plus for people with this type of stove since it is not common to find induction compatible cookware.
  4. Oven safe: up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. This greatly widens the number of things you can cook. This is one of the things users like the most about this item. 
  5. Dishwasher safe: Put it in the dishwasher and forget about it. No need for wasting time washing the saucepan by hand. Use your time for anything you please instead!

What’s not to like:

  1. Construction: Some customers have complained about it being made with thin material and not resisting heavy use, so that is something to keep in mind if you are thinking of buying it. 

Final remarks:

Being induction compatible makes this pot the perfect option for people with this type of cooktop since most pots are not. However, it is important to have in mind that it is not a heavy-duty saucepan meant for constant cooking.
