More things I want: Reduction Pan


All-Clad Stainless Steel Reduction Pan, 2 1/2-Qt.

This is kind of a funny little pan, but it’s heavy and it’s beautiful and it’s got volume markings on the inside so you can tell how much something has reduced. Very neat.

“Chefs favor this type of pan for reducing and concentrating liquids for sauces. Its wide base hastens boiling, while flared sides increase surface area to speed evaporation. The pan is constructed with nonreactive stainless steel interior and exterior surfaces that surround a pure aluminum core. Distributing heat quickly and evenly with no hot spots, the core extends across the bottom and all the way up the pan sides. The stay-cool handle and lid are made of stainless steel. 2 1/2-qt. cap.; 7 1/2″ diam., 4″ high. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.”
