French manufacturer Sitram produces commercial-grade, stainless-steel cookware for restaurant, hotel, and institutional kitchens worldwide--serious home cooks also use this cookware to advantage. On its Profiserie line's pot and pan bottoms, an aluminum disk sheathed in steel conducts heat rapidly and uniformly. Sitram cookware also goes safely into ovens and under broilers, and, designed to withstand rough treatment, its bright, shiny appearance lasts indefinitely. The bottoms don't warp, and this cookware is stain- and corrosion-resistant. And with no inside rivets to clean around, it scrubs up hygienically and painlessly. This is cookware for cooks who value heavy, bang-around durability over fancy design.
Braisiers such as this one offer versatility. In the oven or on top of the stove and covered with a lid (sold separately), this pan serves as a casserole to stew or braise meats, poultry, seafood, or vegetables. Popular for browning meats and rapidly reducing sauces and broths, it's also a sauté pan, a deep-frying pan, and a double-handled saucepan large enough to handle most home-kitchen tasks. --Fred Brack
