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

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!

I was very apprehensive about buying this pot because the description says it's a 5.4qt pot, and 5.2" high. This conflicts w/ my old-old Sitram info that says it's supposed to be 7.4qts and 6.3" high. However, there was an interim distributor that did describe it as a 5.4qt pot. As it turns out, the pot really is 7.4qts, and about 6+" high (interior).

I figured the French manufacture would gurantee a pot of exceptional quality, so I went ahead and risked this purchase even though the design is clearly bare-bones and utilitarian. The pot bottom IS truly exceptional, a nice thick layer of copper sandwiched between stainless steel. However, the bottom is the only thing that makes this pot as heavy as it is; the walls of the pot are not as thick as one might expect from a $142. piece of cookware, which does not include the $31. lid. I returned it, and decided to keep looking.

This is a heavy duty pot with a 2-2.5 mm thick copper disc on the bottom of the pot sandwiched between an inner layer of 18/10 stainless steel and an outer layer of magnetic stainless steel that allows induction cooking. The pot has moderate weight and its 2 handles are firmly secured by 10 spot welds per handle. This pot (and Sitram cookware, generally) is meant for commercial use so it has a satin exterior and interior which is not greatly polished or immaculately finished. The copper disc on the bottom does not extend across the whole diameter of the bottom but does distribute heat quickly and evenly. IMPORTANT ASIDE: Notwithstanding some of their reviews, the catering lids are pretty flimsy (light and thin) and way over-priced but fit well. The catering lid handles are substantial and firmly secured by 4 spot welds. Sitram lids have a vent hole near the outer rim of the lid. Lids and pots sold SEPARATELY.

Cooking pasta or soup, making a small batch of stock or broth, or finishing sauce coming off a chinois or a mafter exoglas or whenever you need a higher sided pot, this delivers!

Of course you can always buy a cheaper 6 quart stainless steel with aluminum bottom stock pot but you won't get the built like a tank like quality that this copper bottom pot can offer. I expect this pot will last a lifetime.
