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!

Leave it to the French to create the perfect saucepan with performance and style. The extra-thick copper-lined bottom heats fast and evenly; won't react with foods as aluminum does, and won't ever warp if left on the burner too long. The polished stainless steel will always look sharp, even with regular dishwasher cleaning. This saucepan's straight sides have a curved rim for accurately pouring a lunchtime soup into a mug or straining a beurre blanc. The handle is designed to direct the heat away and stay cool. Make room on the pot rack for hanging it within reach, because you'll definitely want to show off this imported pot. --Lynne Sampson

I have owned Sitram Catering pots'n'pans for over seven years now. They look today just like they did when I pulled them out of the box seven years ago. And I've used them every single day in between.

Some observations:

1) The "U" shaped handle on the Sitram Catering line is very comfortable to hold. Holding it near the pot, slip all 4 fingers under the handle, align your thumb on top of it, and let the handle rest under your forearm. Now you can pick up a big, heavy, multi-quart pot full of soup comfortably, since your arm (not your wrist) is bearing the weight of the pot. The handle is wide enough that the pot is steady, not "tippy," in your hand.

2) The handles do stay cool, despite being metal, although if you want to put your hand close to the pot (see, 1, above) you'll need a towel. (That's why professional chefs usually have a towel tucked into their waistband.)

3) The copper disk on the bottom of the pot isn't really "thick" or "heavy." That's the point of using copper - just a few millimeters of copper is enough to provide smooth, even heat across the bottom of the pan, without bulk or a lot of weight.

4) You can put these pots in the dishwasher (I have for seven years) and they'll do fine. Or clean by hand with a plastic scrubber, which is fast, easy, and better for the pot.

5) The lids have a single pin-hole vent - which keeps liquid in, while letting enough steam out that the lid doesn't vibrate around on top of a boiling pot.

6) If you do get a bit of discoloration on the pot, use a stainless steel polish. Kuhn Rikon Swiss Cleaner (sold by Amazon) is amazing stuff.

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.

A sticky label does not affect the function of this excellent saucepan. One of my favorites from my extensive Sitram Catering collection. I grab this often to heat up most liquid ingredients (e.g. broths, milk, sauces, etc.). Fits the approx. 7" burner of my ceramic cooktop perfectly. Heavy copper disk at the bottom is an excellent conductor and its weight keeps the pan from sliding all over the cooktop.

My way of removing the labels - wet label with mineral spirits then spray 409 cleaner. The glue will slightly bubble and you can remove it with a paper towel. Do this at your own risk since I do not know anything about the safety of 409 and mineral spirits reactions. This works for me for removing labels from all my Sitram cookware.

Finally, Sitram Catering is an EXCELLENT line of cookware. You won't see them listed as sponsors of many cooking shows but you'll see the cookware used in Sara Moulton's show, some of Food Network contests on TV, and in commerial kitchens. It's hard to find similar quality (especially with copper) in the same price range.
