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.

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 the Inox line's pot and pan bottoms, a disk of copper, cookware's best heat conductor, sheathed in steel conducts heat rapidly and uniformly. Sitram cookware 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.

With its wide bottom and low sides, a rondeau casserole is a commercial-kitchen workhorse. In the oven or on top 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 roasting pan and a fry pan. --Fred Brack

I purchased this giant casserole as a Christmas gift for my husband, in effort to expand his collection of professional cookware. Yes, I am biased, but my husband is extremely talented and more folks that just myself think he could easily start a second career as a gourmet chef. That said, let me say this pan does not get used a whole lot, but when he needs a large pan for specific uses - searing a 2-1/2 lb. tenderloin or making mass quantities of spaghetti sauce for canning - it comes in EXTREMELY handy!

Most residential stoves do not have a burner large enough to accomodate the bottom of this pan, us included. However, with the copper core inside the bottom of the pan, our too-small burner isn't a problem, because the heat distributes throughout the copper core evenly, negating hot spots.

The lid is sold separately from the pot, but if you plan to let anything simmer (and the pan being a casserole, you should), you'll want to buy it - unless you really are a professional chef, no lid you have will be big enough.

The welded handles make for easy cleanup, although you may be limited for ease by the size and depth of your sink. Also, as a tip, take note of the pan diameter and make sure you have a special spot to store it - we had to give up a large cabinet where I previously stored all of our corningware, because that was the only spot wide and deep enough.

In sum, and I can't speak for professional chefs, this isn't a "must-have" pan (splurge on a 3-qt. Falk copper saucier if you want one of those), but it is extremely handy to have when you need an extra-large high-quality pan.

I had a big old rondeau like this one that was made of anodized aluminum. When I decided to dump all of my aluminum pans, it took me a while to decide what to buy as a replacement. I am SO glad I bought this one. I learned about Sitram from a food blog that I read regularly and I will always be thankful to the blogger for introducing me to the brand.

This rondeau is gigantic, which is great for me because I made really big batches of spaghetti sauce. I also use it a lot when I'm trying to brown a lot of meat, because its high sides help keep the oil splatter away from the stovetop. This pot is heavy and very solid, and has a copper core disk at the bottom, which makes it amazingly heat-responsive, without any troublesome hot spots. Like any other stainless steel pan, food WILL stick, but cleanup isn't that bad. All it takes is a little elbow grease and maybe an overnight soak if it's really dirty. The incredibly smooth surface will release almost all stuck-on food after a soak. On those rare times soaking isn't enough, Barkeeper's Friend works wonders.

Sitram Catering makes amazing cookware, and this rondeau is no exception. It is more solidly built AND cheaper than All-Clad. I've never had a Sitram pot or pan warp on me, but I have a couple of warped All-Clads. If you're thinking of buying this rondeau, you won't regret it. Unless of course you have a small stove / small kitchen, then this pot is way too big. Also not recommended for people who cannot lift heavy items. This weighs almost as much as a large Lodge cast iron skillet.

Perfect for browning, braising and stewing large batches of chicken, pork, lamb or the like. This is a very heavy pot - so that's what makes it great for browning meat (maillard reaction) them simmering it in wine, broth and mire poix (carrots, celery and onion) plus lots of garlic.

This is now my standard "braising and stewing" pot and has replaced my 7.25 quart Le Creuset French Oven. It can take more abuse and is easier to clean. It is much wider and will brown more meat faster.

Granted that with the 13.5 in. cover, this rondeau will put you back about $180, this will pay for itself in only 2 outings with the family is a typical restaurant.

This is my best pot for cooking a large meal for my 3 hungry boys and their friends. I love it.
