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.
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"?
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 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 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!

Top Customer Reviews
* Handle is big and uncomfortable.
* Disk is significantly smaller than pan and I've had problems with hot spots in the corners. Pan takes a little practice.
* Pan is commercial constructions and too ugly for your mcmansion show kitchen.
* No rivets are other difficult-to-clean nooks and crannies around the handle. Surface is very smooth and cleans up easily with BKF.
* Pan is very responsive and good at maintaining a steady temp. You could sweat onions for an hour (I did last night) and not have to twiddle your dial constantly to keep them from getting too hot and browning.
I have different size saute pans from All-Clad, Calphalon (commercial and One), and Cuisinart. The Sitram is the fastest and most trustworthy, and seems to be one I reach for more and more. If I were starting over I would probably buy all Sitram, based on my experience with this pan.
The handle is excellent. It is thick, round, and comfortable. On the stovetop, the handle stays cool. After the pan has been in the oven, the handle is of course hot (a fact I frequently forget), but it actually cools off quite quickly. The handle is welded, so there are no rivets to make cleaning difficult. This is a large, heavy pan, though, and I would have appreciated a helper handle on the opposite side.
The construction of the pan is definately commercial/industrial. It feels solid and durable. The edges of the aluminum disk have little or no bevel; that is, they edges of the disk meet the bottom of the pan at about a 90 degree angle. This gives the pan something of an unfinished look, and could lead to the edge of the disk catching on the burner grate as you put it on the burner or move it around. Also, the bottom surface of the aluminum disk is not polished--you can see the machining pattern. This makes it a little hard to move smoothly over the burner grate when sautéing.
I am quite happy with the pan, and will continue to buy other Sitram cookware.
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.Read more ›
