Product Description


Sitram logo Made in France

Sitram France has produced professional grade cookware for over 40 years. It is favored by many of the world's top executive chefs and restaurants. We're glad to have Sitram available in the U.S.

Chef Saucepans

Why do so many professionals around the world favor Sitram cookware? Sitram cookware is made in France, designed for commercial use. The factory is fully aware of the highest expectations that executive chefs place in their equipment, and continuously works with them to provide nothing but the best. Why would you want professional cookware? Oh, where do we start! How about "these pots and pans are virtually indestructible as well as dishwasher safe"?

There's more:

To pour drip-free, simply push the lever. Releasing the lever re-seals it. For easy filling and cleaning, the attached lid opens all the way.

Both lines offered here, Catering and Profiserie, are made of highest quality 18/10 stainless steel to guarantee even heat distribution. Since the base is composed of three thick layers of sturdy metal, they will never warp, yet Sitram cookware heats up quickly and retains heat extremely well.

Needless to say, Sitram's surgical-steel grade material won't discolor or alter the flavor of foods. Users around the world praise how smooth the interior remains even after years of rigid use.

The handles are multiple spot welded to provide superior durability and easy cleaning. The lids feature a small hole to vent: While it keeps liquids and flavors in, it lets just a tiny amount of steam out so that the lid doesn't vibrate top of a boiling pot. All pots, pans and lids are dishwasher safe, NSF* certified and come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Catering versus Profiserie
Catering set

Catering boasts a thick copper core sandwiched between two layers of 18/10 stainless steel. Copper allows for a higher cooking temperature, perfectly even heat distribution, and a quick response time to temperature changes.

The grooved handles are the hallmark of commercial-grade cookware.Catering withstands temperatures up to 1800F and can be used on gas, electric, or ceramic stove-tops. Oven-safe (please use oven mitts).

profiserie set

Profiserie has an extra thick aluminum disk sandwiched between 18/10 stainless steel and comes with comfort grip stay-cool tubular handles.

Profiserie can be used on gas, electric, ceramic, or induction stove-tops. Oven-safe (please use oven mitts).

For your convenience, all Sitram pieces are available "open stock". Sitram does not force you into buying cookware sets to include items/sizes you don't need. Get exactly what you need - not more, not less, and enjoy it for a lifetime. Let Sitram become your trusted partner in your kitchen. Bon Appétit!

This larger frying pan is from a line of the most distinguished cookware in and outside of France. Professionals rely on the superior heat conduction and durability. For the home cook, the surgical quality stainless steel offers a lot of eye appeal along with high performance. The warp-proof pan bottom is three layers thick with a thermic copper core, the best metal for conducting heat from the flame to the food. The long handle stays cool even over high heat and it's welded to withstand the oven, broiler, and dishwasher cleaning. The polished finish will stay shining, long after you've mastered the art of sautéing without the aid of a spoon--just like the pros. --Lynne Sampson

This pan is the BEST frying pan I've ever used. I am blown away by Sitram's commercial line. I compared this pan side-by-side with the All-Clad 11-incher, while baking dutch-style pancakes - a great test in how fast the pan fries, as well as how well the heat is distributed and retained.
The Sitram fries more evenly, more quickly, and stays "smoother", i.e. it's easier to clean. I can only conclude that the copper-sandwich layer must be much thicker in the Sitram than the All-Clad. The Sitram (1770 grams) is 20% heavier than the All-Clad (1478 grams), which probably accounts for this.
Pancakes (and since that test also steaks, caramelized onions, sauces etc.) fry about 40% quicker. So upon first use of this gem, watch out, and turn the heat down if you're unprepared! It is just astonishing how much better this pan is, and that's while I was satisfied with the All-Clads. This pan will spoil you. Like me, you may never want to go back to anything else.

I was surprised at the weight of this pan; I have been a devotee of "Calaphon" for over 20 years. I am starting to convert to stainless little by little. I have some Cuisinart that is also very good, but I like this better.
The handles are angled up which keeps them out of the way and lets them clear other pans on the stove if you have a major cooking project going. The handle also has a gap where it is welded to the pan which lets fluids drain down rather than collect in a pocket. It can make your stove a little messier, but it is easier to keep the pan clean.
The interior is silky smooth and requires just a small amount of oil to keep food from sticking. The recommend that you use non-metalic utensils to keep from scratching it. The heavy layer of copper bonded between two layers of stainless on the bottom works great to distribute heat accross the pan. The side are a single layer of heavy stainless, so they do not get hot and cause food to burn on.
This pan is very well made and should last for a lifetime.

After going through a set of Revere Ware and then Calphalon with some Magnalite along the way, I am happy to discover Sitram. This cookware is everything a person could want--takes less heat than others, cooks evenly, and looks beautiful. I wish I had had it fifty years ago. Cleanup is a breeze and although I use an oil spray, there is no problem with sticking, as one might expect with stainless steel. This is less expensive than All-Clad and just as efficient. A person with good equipment can always do a better job.

There's something about fry pans or skillets that do not make them universally useful. Unlike a saut? pan or a saucier that can hold lots of food, by design you just can't overload a skillet and expect it to work. Its angled low sides are engineered to release as much moisture as possible when frying so you can get a crispy outer layer.

Also, you can't seem to be happy with only one kind of skillet. For example, for frying chicken, chops, steak, hamburgers or the like, you can't beat a well seasoned cast iron skillet. For frying eggs or delicate food, you'll probably reach for a non-stick skillet (sometime called an omelet pan). So, when does one need a stainless steel frying pan? In my case, I use one when I need to fry or sear something crisp and when I want to build a sauce from the flavorful stuff that`s stuck to the pan. I just can't do the same thing on a seasoned cast iron skillet, because the sauce will taste different; besides you really are not suppose to cook anything too acidic or too alkaline on cast iron. On the other hand, since nothing sticks on a non-stick pan, you won't have the good stuff stuck on the pan which will be the base for your sauce.

In all probability, you'll have a cheap iron skillet and a non-stick skillet hanging around and will ask yourself why spend money on a stainless steel skillet when you can buy a more versatile cookware such as a saut? pan or a saucier or even a rondeau? I am not reviewing one's necessity for a stainless steel frying pan. I shall review this 11" fry pan based on its merits and perceived value.

This 11" fry pan is very well constructed. It shares the same benefits (e.g. heat conductivity, heat capacity, heavy weight, and very flat bottom) that other Sitram Catering cookware offer.

I worked in restaurants for many years before going into the federal gov't, and good pans or bad pans would show their true colours over time.

For those w/ any arm/wrist/finger troubles, know that this pan may be uncomfortable to grip the handle, and may be a little too heavy. The handle is not rounded, but thin and rigid for lack of a better word. The Profiserie Sitram line is easier and "softer" to handle. However, this pan is a powerhouse, if you will, and can handle and endure heavy use in the kitchen, which is why it is "commercial grade" in both name and quality.

I would recommend using only wooden spoons and spatulas in this pan. Pure virgin olive oil is the best to use to get the pan going when sautéing, but extra virgin oo is good for lighter cooking or when simmering. Using a wooden spatula (never metal) will keep things from sticking just fine -- scrape when necessary w/ the wooden spatula. Do not forget to keep your wooden spatulas/spoons/cutting boards oiled too. (See my other reviews for suggestions on this topic)

Oil sprays are not necessary and only last so long anyway. This pan will become a valued partner in the kitchen. It is a joy to use knowing that you are using a high quality item. It is good to hand wash these pans and to use a little bit of "Bartenders Friend" to keep them shining like new. It is also good not to use high heat, but rather middle heat zones for smooth cooking.

The bottom line is that this pan is perfect, and beats a Tephlon or other nonstick pan in durability without trouble. In addition, unlike the nonstick pans, you do not have to worry about scratching it, no peeling of the coating, and best of all no chemical concerns leaching into your food -- there has been much debate/concern about this. I do not use nonstick pans for anything.

I hope this is helpful.
