Swiss Diamond XD Nonstick Sauce Pan 3.2 Quart is ideal for delicious sauces, soups and so much more! With the new and Swiss Diamond nonstick XD coating and the heavy-duty cast aluminum construction, heat distribution is so even that less stirring is required to make all of your favorites. No more scrubbing and soaking – the advanced new coating ensures easy cleanup with warm water and a soft, soapy sponge. With 20 percent more diamonds and an improved seal between the cooking surface and the aluminum base, the result is a tougher, more corrosion resistant layer for an increase in both durability and food release properties. The tall, vertical sides are the same measurement as the pan’s diameter, giving you a bit more room than the Swiss Diamond 2.2 Qt. Saucepan. The rivet-free cooking surface protects against bacteria buildup and the PFOA-free nonstick surface is designed to be used with little to no oils or butters, ideal for years of healthy cooking. Featuring comfortable, ergonomic, stay cool handles, you always are in maximum control. Because diamonds conduct heat so efficiently and quickly, the Swiss Diamond XD nonstick coating maximizes heat transfer to eliminate hot spots, providing you with an excellent base for making consistent sauces. The heat-tempered, glass lids feature an adjustable steam vent which allows you to control the amount of moisture in the pot and ensure optimal texture and flavor.
