Windsor saucepans have flared sides and are used primarily for creating sauces. This is because firstly the flared sides allow for greater evaporation of the sauce due to the greater surface area. So if you have sauces that need to be reduced then a Windsor saucepan is idea.
Secondly, the flared sides mean easier whisking as you pretty much have more room to move.
The All Clad Copper Core Windsor saucepn is the perfect example of a Windsor saucepan. First of all, it just looks absolutely gorgeous. You really can’t fault All Clad for the beauty of their products. Secondly, it has beautifully flared sides and a flared rim for drip free pouring.
The All Clad Copper Core range of cookware would have to be one of the best. This cookware is made from 5 layers of metals. The inner cooking surface and also the outer surface is made from 18/10 stainless steel.
Sandwiched between those are layers of aluminum and copper AND these layers extend up the sides of the saucepan. You don’t get this in a lot of cookware. Most have the aluminum or copper layer in the base of the pot only. In a nutshell, this really makes for outstanding cooking results.
Both aluminum and copper are good conductors of heat so foods cook evenly and without hot spots. The copper means that you have precise cooking control as it responds rapidly to temperature change. This is perfect when it comes to cooking sauces which can easily burn if not careful.
This isn’t cheap with prices around the $250-$300 mark but it is a beautiful piece of cookware that you will be proud to own.
