What is the difference between a saucepan and pots?

A pot has tall sides and two loop handles, while a pan is shallow with one long handle. Pots are used for simmering or boiling liquids that completely cover ingredients to cook from all sides. Pans are used for cooking methods that apply high heat to produce browning, like reducing, sauteing, searing, or frying.

What is the use of a saucepan?

Saucepans are usually used for cooking anything that is liquid or has gravy. It is a very useful utensil for stewing, simmering, making soups, sauces, etc. The shape of a saucepan heats the liquid quicker than other pots and pans, giving the perfect texture to the sauces. Additionally, saucepans can also be used to make pasta, lentils, risotto, mashed potatoes, among many other dishes.

Which pan is best for milk?

Milk can easily overflow or burn if not boiled carefully. Ideally a milk pan with lid is best for boiling milk, but a small saucepan can also be used instead. They usually have tall sides and a long handle to enable maneuvering atop a hot stove and ensure a dripless pour. Borosil’s Cookfresh Triply Saucepan with Silicone Handle and Lid is a best selling milk pan that can be used both- as a saucepan and a milk pan. It has a triply body that heats quickly and evenly, and a thick body that makes it highly durable. This multipurpose saucepan is compatible with all stove types, including gas, induction, hot-plate and halogen.

What is the difference between a milk pan and saucepan?

The only difference between a saucepan and a milk pan is in their shape. A good even heat distribution is important when cooking in a saucepan. The saucepans always have a handle and their bottoms are nicely rounded. Stirring is very important, that’s why in many cases they have a sloped edge so working a whisk is easy. On the other hand, milk tends to burn quickly. A milk pan has a good heat distribution and can have a non-stick coating. It is related to the saucepan, except its side is straight right. A milk pan has a handle and sometimes there is a spout (or even two) to pour without making a mess.

What is a triply saucepan?

A tri ply saucepan is made up of three layers consisting of stainless steel bonded to an aluminum core and a third layer added to the surface using the process of anodizing for all-around heat conduction and durability of the product. A triply stainless steel saucepan is one of the best kinds of cookware if you are conscious of the safety and health aspects of your cooking. It is non-reactive and absolutely residue-free. Stainless steel is universally recognized as a safe material for cookware, and when it is Borosil’s range of Cookfresh Triply Saucepans and Topes, it's even better because of its durability and versatility

Is triply better than stainless steel?

Stainless steel cookware can be thinner than triply cookware, due to which it creates hot spots, resulting in the food to be cooked unevenly. Whereas, triply stainless steel cookware has a layer of aluminum sandwiched between the two layers of stainless steel. This triply body allows the utensil to heat quickly and evenly to help conserve fuel and also give a smooth cooking experience. Therefore, we can say that for saucepans, triply is better than stainless steel.

What is the most useful saucepan size?

The ideal saucepan size depends on the quantity you have to cook. If it is for boiling milk, tea, etc then a small saucepan of 1-1.5L is more than sufficient. However, while cooking meals and preparing dishes, you may find a saucepan of about 2L or more suitable, and a larger saucepan of 3L or more to be appropriate when cooking for a bigger group of people. Borosil offers a wide range of saucepans that are available in different capacities from 1 L to 3.1L, depending on your requirements.

Is a sauté pan the same as a saucepan?

While saute pans and saucepans have a lot of similarities, they have their respective places in the cookware collection, depending on the type of dish you have to prepare. They both have straight vertical sides coming off the base but saute pans have shorter sides and saucepans have taller sides. Saute Pans are mostly used for very light liquids, semi solid or solid dishes, and saucepans are widely used for preparing most dishes with gravy/ liquids.
